Theme and Subject
One glance at Planet of Apes slot machine will tell you that it was carefully designed to properly simulate and bring the movie theme to life. On the slot screen, there are two sides; each of these sides of has five by four reels each and its own colour theme, the rise has a bright yellow while the dawn has an orange hue.
These reels spin separately and wins can be earned on both sides (In short, they function almost like two different reels except in some instances). To win on either side, your reels have to match at least three of the same symbols. Playing these slots will most like bring nostalgia if you have seen the Planet of Apes Movie as most characters, including the humans and the apes in the movie sequels are in the slot machine.
On the screen there is a coin value icon with adjusters below it with values from 0.01 to 200.00. If you want to bet the big bucks, click on the ‘max bet’ icon to stake the maximum amount allowed. This makes it an ideal slot machine for both high roller punters and those on a budget (which isn’t a bad thing). The ‘spin’ button sets the game in motion and ‘auto-play’ do the same thing only continuously for how many times you have selected. Paylines are a total of 20. Planet of Apes slot has an RTP of 96.3% and maximum win is €1000.
Symbols and Soundtrack
There are equivalent symbols on both side of the reels. The lower part of the reels have low-value card symbols from tens to aces. The middle reels have human characters in the movies as symbols which are medium paying. The highest valued symbols are the ape characters and the highest of them pay 600 coins times your stake. The ape symbols serve as the scatters on both reels (with the same value) and when you match 3 or more apes, you win a reward. The wild symbols can win you 50x your stake, apes are valued 30x your stake, humans can earn you 9x and card symbols are 4x your bet.
Both reels have one wild symbol each and this symbol can replace all other symbols on the reel it occurs. When a wild symbol is stacked on the Rise, it will act as an expanding wild and move to the Dawn on the corresponding sides of the reel.
- Rise Free Spin feature: when three or more scatters are matched on the Rise reel, ten free spins will be awarded.
- Dawn Free Spin feature: fifteen free spins are awarded when you match three scatters in the dawn areas.
- Dual Feature: activated randomly and selects a symbol from each reel on the screen. This symbol sticks to the reel and if the same symbol is on the next reel in the same position, you win additional coins.
Apart from the ten bonus rounds you will be rewarded with when your reels match 3 scatters on the Rise side, you get to collect all wild symbols that you landed on each spin. These wilds will now occur randomly during the last bonus round. Also during the Dawn bonus round, you earn three special symbols that can fill up the meter (with a multiplier effect), free spins meter and extra wild meter. Once any of these meters is filled up, you get another chance to win a prize.
