Planet of the Apes is a dual reel slot from Netent that promises to be massively popular. The slot players like a Hollywood motion picture with punchy sound and great 3d visuals. Do yourself a favor and watch the intro when you first play. This slot has 10 reels and 40 pay lines, divided into 2 areas with different symbols: Rise and Down. It includes free spins and some spectacular bonus games. Learn about all its features, symbols and functions in this review.
Planet of the Apes RTP
Planet of the Apes has medium volatility. The RTP is 96.33%, slightly above the industry average. Visually, it may be one of the best NetEnt slots. Furthermore, it is iOS and Android friendly, as it has been designed with HTML5 technology.
However, if this slot stands out for something, it is for its excellent graphics. Which do a great honor to the movies themselves. The display features a huge number of settings, which can be handled simply and efficiently every time.
The sound part deserves some attention as well. Its interesting sounds are remarkable, and it has a song in the background that invites to action. Even the incorporation of certain voices during the game, allows a more realistic vision in the end.
What Are the Features of Planet of the Apes?
The dual reels represent the different parts of Caesar’s life. The left reel is called Rise and the right reel Dawn. Each reel is treated separately, acting like two separate slots in the one game.
Unsurprisingly, the symbols are characters straight from the movie, plus the 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace symbols.
The wild symbol is present on the Rise and Dawn reels. They will substitute for any other symbol except the scatter symbols. Wilds also stack in the ‘Rise’ game as spins progress further, and once a reel is full of wilds, the stacked wilds are replicated over to the ‘Dawn’ reels.
If you hit five symbols, its pays; Wild symbols pay 30x, Scatters pay 50x, the Apes pay 30x, the Humans pay 9x, and other symbols pay 4x.
What are the Planet of the Apes Bonus Rounds?
To get into the free spins bonuses round, you need to trigger the Rise Bonus game, which is three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The scatters must appear on the specific reel, such as Rise. Three scatters appearing on both reels do not trigger the free spins round. The Rise reel pays ten free spins while the Dawn reel pays 15 free spins – I’m not sure why it’s different.
During the free spins round the wild, multiplier, and extra free spins panel displays on the right-hand side; as you spin each bonus symbol, the meter teasingly goes up. It is also possible to score more free spins during the free spins round. I managed to land the Dawn free spins bonus and won 1890 coins. It is possible to land 3+ scatters on ‘Rise’, and 3+ scatters on ‘Dawn’; if you do, you’ll win a big cash prize.
As well as the free spins round, there is a Rise Bonus and Dawn Bonus. The Rise bonus pays up to 79.5x your bet and the Dawn Bonus up to 1200x.
Planet of the Apes Slot Review
Planet of the Apes slot is a ten reel and 40 pay-line slots. It is visually highly appealing and will win over many video slot players. The wins, however, seem to be very sparse. The theme will attract many, and we would expect more movie themes brought to life in the video slots casino realm.
