Gorilla Go Wilder is the follow-up slot to the much-loved Gorilla Go Wild, initially released back in 2015. This revamp of a classic has got a lot of tongues wagging, so we’ve reviewed the slot for you ahead of its release on 27 February 2019. If you need a reminder of all the wacky fun from the original, refresh yourself at Royal Panda.
A lot has changed in the online slot landscape over the last four years with new advancements in technology and big improvements in graphics, as well as innovative bonus features, so can Gorilla Go Wilder live up to it? Gorilla Go Wilder definitely ups the ante in terms of interesting progressive features and visually it’s even better than the last so in a word, yes – it can. There are eight versions of the free spins rounds and we’ll go through each of those a little later.
Slot Design and Theme
This isn’t simply a remake of the original slot, it’s so much more. Gary the gorilla breaks free from the jungle and embarks on a new tropical adventure. The slot is set on a paradise island filled with palm trees, coconuts and soothing ocean sounds. Along with the classic A, K, Q, J symbols you’ll be spinning the reels with characters such as toucans, cute monkeys, gold coins, and of course Gary the gorilla. The entire design is a fun cartoon style and the bright graphics give a relaxed atmosphere to spin in, but it’s the super cool progressive bonus rounds that will have you coming back for more.
Gameplay and Payouts
The gameplay for Gorilla Go Wilder is very similar to the original slot, and that’s not a bad thing! The base game is set on a fairly standard five-reel, 25 pay line grid, so you won’t get distracted and can enjoy all the added extras this slot has to offer. The bet range is also more than decent, with the minimum stake being as low as $0.30 per spin up to $75, offering the perfect bet for all types of players.
Gorilla Go Wilder, as you would perhaps expect, is compatible with most devices and can be played seamlessly on the go on either iOS or Android.
The base game in Gorilla Go Wilder is exactly that, and although it’s fun, there is no doubt that it’s the bonus rounds that bring this slot to life.
We’ve gone wild for the bonus rounds in this game, most notably the ‘Bonus Island’ feature. This is a progressive feature, it means that you get bigger and better rewards each time you trigger it. Of course, the ‘Bonus Island’ isn’t the only bonus on offer.
Shell re-spin: Randomly triggered during regular play, the shell re-spin feature will give you a re-spin and will be re-triggered until there are no new shells on the win lines. This can result in huge returns if all spaces are filled with the shells.
Gary’s gift: Again, this is randomly triggered and will lead you to the ‘Bonus Island’ feature.
Bonus Island: There are eight separate island bonuses on offer, and each will offer a slightly different reward than the last. Once triggered, by either landing three bonus symbols or through Gary’s Gift feature, you will be awarded 10 free spins with the chance of landing 10 more and one additional boost.
The islands all offer the same number of spins with the chance to re-trigger; here is what each island holds and on how many bonus rounds you will need to trigger it:
- Tiki Bar(1st): Up to 50x your stake
- Crystal Cave (4th): A mystery symbol on the reels which can change to any other symbol (except the scatter)
- Green Jungle (7th): Expanding Wilds that can fill entire reels
- Waterfall (10th): All symbols are stacked
- Volcano (15th): Varying paylines 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 up to 200!
- Spooky Jungle (20th): Selected symbols will always be wild
- Purple Jungle (25th): Two wandering wilds for every spin with the potential to ignite a 10x multiplier
- Sunset Beach (30th): Up to a 25x multiplier on wins
