What will you fight for? The survival of humanity, or the dawn of a new civilisation, in Planet of the Apes, from NetEnt. These primates are on the rise and going ape, with dual reels, Stacking Wilds, transforming symbols, and a duo of Bonus rounds and free spin features, we’re sure it’ll make you go bananas.
Reminiscent of the split between mankind and their primate frenemies, Planet of the Apes features a pair of play areas themed around the Rise and Dawn of the Apes. This 10-reel video slot has separate bonus and scatter features for each one of its reel sets. When the Rise Bonus symbol lands on the first reel, you’ll get a coin win for each human and ape symbol displayed on the Rise play area. If you get a Dawn Bonus symbol on the tenth reel, ape and human symbols in the Dawn play area transform into the same random symbol. If a winning combination is already present, the highest value symbol from the winning line is chosen.
There’s even more cash to be won in the free spin features. In Rise Free Spins, triggered when three or more scatters appear in the Rise play area, you’re given 10 free spins. Any wilds that land during Rise Free Spins are collected, and after the final free spin, are scattered randomly across the reels. Dawn Free Spins awards 15 free spins and adds three new collectible symbols to the Dawn play area; Multiplier, Extra Wild, and Extra Free Spins. Every three symbols of the same type collected, it’s corresponding feature is added to the reels. Multiplier adds between 2x and 5x to your wins. Extra Wilds transforms one of the human symbols into wilds for the remaining free spins, and Extra Free Spins adds 3 more spins to the free spin round.
But the bonobonuses don’t stop there! Two more features randomly trigger in play; Stacked Wilds, and the Dual feature. When stacked wilds land in the Rise play area they’re duplicated in same position on the Dawn reels, for an even bigger win bonanza. The dual feature will trigger before your spin. The game chooses a separate symbol for each reel, the reels now contain only those symbols and no others. Both sets of reels spin, if a reel lands on its own play area, it sticks. If it lands on the other, it flips over to the other reel. If at least one new symbol lands on each spin, the reels will keep turning – it’s possible to fill the whole grid with matching symbols!
Whether you choose to side with the primates, or fight for humanity, we’re sure you’ll end up being a true chimp-ion. There’s no time to monkey around, don’t miss your chance to be top banana with Planet of the Apes and Vera&John online casino!
