Gorilla Go Wilder bonus features
Our gorilla adventure takes place in what appears to be a tropical paradise – gently lapping ocean waves, swaying palm trees and a sandy beach. The protagonist, Gary the Gorilla, hangs out to the left of the game screen.
We can see 9, 10, J, Q, K and A symbols, which are low value, as well as bright toucans, skunks, monkeys and gold coins as higher value symbols.
Our purple friend Gary is the Wild symbol on this NextGen video slot. He can substitute for any other symbol except the Scatter and he is also quite the generous gorilla – landing 5 of his symbols on a payline will reward with x50 the initial stake.
Shell Re-Spin feature
Re-spins are triggered at random during the base game, which is a nice touch for players and keeps things interesting. When triggered, the player is automatically awarded 1 re-spin and any shell symbols that land during that re-spin will award an additional spin. Re-spins will continue until either no more sea shells appear or all 15 spaces are filled with shells.
Every shell that appears means a coin win however the amount won will depend on how many re-spins have been triggered. Activating re-spins 5 times in a row will award a win of 8.33 times the stake. Collecting the full 15 re-spins will result in a win of 83.33 times the stake!
Gary’s Gift feature
This game has another random base game feature called Gary’s Gifts. This feature can also be triggered when 3 or more Bonus Scatter symbols appear on the reels. Three, 4 or five Scatters will reward with 4, 8 or 83 times the initial stake, respectively.
When this feature is activated (either through the random Gary’s Gifts or the Scatter symbols), the player will be shown a selection of islands that can be visited. The number of available islands and their respective features will be determined by how many times the Island Bonus has been triggered previously.
Gorilla Go Wilder Free Spins
The very first island and the one available immediately is the Tiki Bar. When selected, it will award 10 free spins and all symbols except the Scatter will reward according to the Power paytable, which means bigger wins. Additional spins can be triggered during the feature, up to 20 free spins in total.
Next is the Crystal Cave. This is available after the bonus has been triggered 4 times. 10 free spins are awarded and the reels will be covered with mystery symbols. These can change to any other symbol except the scatter. Up to 20 free spins can be retriggered in total.
The Green Jungle is accessible after the bonus has been triggered 7 times. On this island, the player receives 10 free spins with Expanding Wilds that grow to occupy entire reels.
Reach the Waterfall section after your tenth bonus trigger. All symbols except the Scatter will appear stacked during the 10 free spins awarded.
Visit the Volcano after triggering the bonus 15 times. On these 10 free spins, the paylines are increased, up to a maximum of 200.
The Spooky Jungle is next, available after the 20th trigger. Selected symbols will be changed to Wilds.
The Purple Jungle is the next stop on the map, after the bonus is triggered 25 times. During these 10 free spins, 2 Wandering Wild symbols will appear on each round. Should they land on the same space, all wins that include a Wild will be multiplied by 10.
And finally, Sunset Beach. This island is only available after the bonus feature has been triggered 30 times. A multiplier zone will appear on the game screen. If a win happens on one position within that zone, a x25 multiplier is applied. The more multiplier zone spaces occupied, the higher the multiplier, up to a maximum of x15 when all 15 positions fall within the zone.
When any of the islands are selected, the player is first awarded 10 spins as a default which can be retriggered up to 20 spins in total.
