Guns N’ Roses famously sang, "Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got fun and games." They could easily have been referring to the cool Gorilla Kingdom slot from NetEnt as it whisks you off to the African jungle, and you can absolutely have fun and games.

But the rock band has their own branded slot game (Guns N’ Roses Video Slots), so they wouldn’t really be promoting a game for a gorilla, unfortunately. TwinSpires Casino is happy to sing its praises, however, and has made Gorilla Kingdom its Slot of the Week.

Spend just $10 on this atmospheric NetEnt game, and we reward you with 20 free spins. You’ll be beating your chest with excitement in no time.

How to Play Gorilla Kingdom

The five-reel, four-row video slot machine is an excellent choice for our popular Slot of the Week promotion because it is so simple and pleasing to play. Even if you’re something of a slot novice, you will enjoy playing Gorilla Kingdom.

When you fire up the slot, the first thing you notice is the beautifully-drawn background of the jungle, with lush forestation, a waterfall, and the occasional dragonfly buzzing around. The music, too, is just as you imagine the beat of the African jungle should be.

There are no paylines in Gorilla Kingdom. Instead, you need only land the same symbol anywhere on successive reels, starting on the left. Usually, you need three symbols, but some of the higher value symbols in this game will payout even if you land just two. All in all, this equates to a bumper 1,024 ways to win.

The lower-paying symbols are the usual collection of card symbols in the base game, from nine through ace. You then have some animals of the jungle, including a hornbill, okapi (a weird fusion of giraffe and zebra – don’t ask), and pangolin. But top of the tree is the gorilla. Be warned; it makes a fearsome roar!

Every now and again, a giant diamond appears. This is the scatter symbol, and when you land three or more, you enter the free spins bonus round.

  • 3 diamonds = 10 free spins
  • 4 diamonds = 15 free spins
  • 5 diamonds = 20 free spins

You can also trigger extra free spins during the free spins round

  • 2 symbols = 3 free spins
  • 3 symbols = 10 free spins
  • 4 symbols = 15 free spins
  • 5 symbols = 20 free spins

During this exciting free spins round, the gorilla symbol may transform into a mask. If so, it now goes to the right of the screen and fills one of six slots below the bottom of four animal symbols on the totem stone. You get an extra two free spins each time the six slots fill up.

Gorilla Kingdom RTP

NetEnt says the return to player percentage (RTP) for Gorilla Kingdom is 96.03% with low volatility. It’s a good RTP, making this game ideal for our Slot of the Week because there’s more than a decent chance of winning back some cash from your promotional free spins.
