We all know King Kong and his tendency to climb up buildings and destroy everything in his way. However, we also know that he is the ultimate king of the jungle and that he is often generous with those who are friendly with him.
This movie star is now the protagonist of Blueprint’s latest release titled King Kong Cash. With a leap from the big screen to television, from television to video games, and now from video games all the way to pokie machines, we are certain that fans will recognize him and love him.
Based on an intuitive 5×3 grid that will make you feel welcomed, you will find yourself among bright colored letters and wild animals (crocodiles, tigers, etcetera) while you spin the reels. We found the variance in this game to be medium, meaning that you can get small consistent wins in a quite regular way.
King Kong Cash is all about the special features. Some of them are triggered randomly when King Kong awakes from his nap, while others will require you to get three or more Bonus symbols landing per spin.
The randomly triggered ones are called Banana Cannon Wilds, Golden Barrel Super Spin, Bonus Boos, Kong Respin and King Kong Streak. These will grant you with multipliers and further special symbols that will give you an increased chance of hitting a good final payout.
The other special features -that is, the ones triggered by three or more Bonus symbols- work on a sort of progressive level dynamic. There is a fixed order in terms of which of them goes first and which others will follow, and we will briefly describe them.
The Barrel Blast feature is not very interesting, as it consists in Wild barrel symbols exploding once they’ve landed on the reels, allowing you to fill in said spaces with other symbols that will cascade down.
Next, it is the King Kong Trail. You will be presented with four barrels: two of them will have bombs that will make you lose, while the other two will have some prizes in terms of moves and multipliers.
The third step consists in the Empire Free Spins feature, in which you will have King Kong escalating the Empire State Building. This amazing background will be set on a 5×3 grid in which you will be asked to collect 3 or more golden monkeys in order to get to the next dynamic.
The Golden Kong Spins is the next feature, in which you will get a total of 10 free spins with paylines set at a double value, payout-wise. Each of the Kong landing on the reels will award you with free spins and multipliers.
The last one of these features, there’s the Big Money Bonus Round, which is highly difficult to obtain. We do not know the specifics, but we do know that this is where the profitable 1000x reward is placed.
What we loved
As you can see, it is all about the bonus features in this game. There is a lot going on in terms of specialties and mini-games, and we are always happy to play a multi-layered pokie with this level of detail.
Furthermore, we loved the fact that substantial wins are possible in this game. King Kong Cash is not only entertaining, but profitable.
What we did not like
There is something missing in terms of graphics and visual design.
Even featuring 3D graphics and carefully taken details, we have to recognize that this is not the most attractive pokie ever.
We do think that this pokie machine is worth playing, especially if you enjoy the concept. You will be rewarded and invited to participate in a wide variety of special features that will make your experience even more interesting.
Join the king of the jungle in this amazing quest for treasures and coins. We are sure that you will not regret it.
