A Blockbuster Offering From Net Entertainment
Inspired by the science fiction classic, this fresh new video slot from NetEnt brings to life the “edge of the seat” excitement displayed in the new Planet of the Apes trilogy. The best part is that you end up playing not just one, but two slots simultaneously. Excited? Read on to find out more…
When we first encountered a slightly new concept of playing two slots simultaneously, we did have our doubts. One thing we wondered about was whether NetEnt would stretch itself thin over 40 paylines, 20 paylines per play area. The good news is that Planet of the Apes goes all out blockbuster for its players, just like the trilogy. So, if you have a Stacked Wild feature where when one play area is decked with Wilds, they are replicated on the other play area too.
Double the Bonus, Double the Fun
Each playing area has their own bonus and free spins feature.
The Rise playing area awards its bonus when the symbol appears on the first reel. All human and ape symbols are then awarded an extra coin each, with multipliers that shoot up to 80x. This is one instance where both species help each other out. There are free spins too, awarded when three or more Scatter symbols land on the playing area. Ten free spins are awarded on each turn. If you manage to land any Wilds in the process, they are collected and randomly placed on the playing area after the tenth free spin. This could lead to more winning combinations.
Not to be outdone by the Rise playing area, the Dawn area has some neat tricks up its sleeve as well.
First up is the bonus feature. Land the special symbol on the last reel and you trigger a round, at the end of which, you could walk away with a cool 1200x your initial bet. Here, the ape and human symbols morph together to boost your win percentage. Then you have the Free Spins feature where landing three Scatter symbols unlocks 15 free spins. There is also a 3000x reward you can walk away with when you land three special symbols in this round – the Extra Wild, Extra Free Spins Meter and Multiplier.
Now for some brass tacks. There are 10 reels spread over two playing areas with 40 bet lines in total. The minimum that you need to get started is 10 cents, with maximum bet of €200. The payout percentage of Planet of the Apes stands at an impressive 96.3%.
Trust NetEnt to roll out a true blockbuster slot for some end of the year celebrations. Planet of the Apes has a lot going for it, including the innovative gameplay, high rewards, easy interface and some excellent graphics that are a treat for your eyes.
