Theme

One of the most successful movie franchises of the last 50 years, Planet of the Apes has certainly left its mark on the cinematic world. 

Originally…

...the film of the same name was released in 1968 – based on a 1963 novel – and it spawned four sequels in the next five years. There were even two television series produced before the franchise seemingly died. But a revival that began in 2001 has produced several more successful films, including 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes.

The Planet of the Apes video slot is a split-screen machine that, in many ways, is two games in one: on the left…

... a set of reels devoted to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and on the right, one themed on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. 

On each side…

...fans of the movies will enjoy looking at artwork that is clearly drawn from each title, with a distinct color scheme on each (warm and natural for Rise, dark and foreboding for Dawn). The reels and the symbols on them are well-designed, with plenty of high-quality images of human and ape characters on each.

Betting Options

Like most titles released on software by NetEnt, this game is fully mobile-optimized. That not only means that you can play on your tablet, iPhone, or Android device, but that you can enjoy using touchscreen capabilities that take full advantage of what your mobile device of choice is capable of. 

You can also choose from a variety of different coin values and number of coins per spin, which provides enough options for both low limit gamblers and high rollers

The best way to describe the Planet of the Apes video slot is that it is two games at once, each of which features five reels and 20 paylines of action. In both cases, the object of the game is as you would expect it to be; make matches from left to right across your paylines in order to score wins, with at least three in a row required in order to make a win.

Phew! 

Now this non-progressive slot’s gaming mechanics are done and dusted, here are your wagering options. You can select bet levels ranging from 1-10, with the coin values set between 0.01 and 1. In real-money terms, the minimum bet is 0.20 compared with a maximum of 200.

The icons in both game areas are very similar.

They start with the basic card ranks, ranging from tens through aces, which act as the low-paying symbols. 

The middle of the pay table is filled with the human characters from each film, all of which offer the same moderate awards. 

FINALLY…

...the high-paying icons are made up of a couple of ape characters in both games, with the highest payouts being 600 coins (multiplied by the betting level currently being used).

There are numerous special features that can be triggered on this machine, as well as a couple of icons that have special effects. 

As you would expect…

...each side of the machine has a wild that can substitute for your normal icons. One cool thing about the wild symbols in this game is that if a stacked wild covers the entire reel on the Rise side of the action, it will then be transferred over to the Dawn portion to cover the same reel there as well.

There are also Scatter symbols on each set of reels that can trigger instant prizes if you hit three or more anywhere on each area. This will also trigger a free spins game, which is slightly different on each side. 

Special Features

There’s a Rise Bonus feature which is played when the Rise Bonus symbol lands on the 1st reel – basically, an additional cash bonus is awarded to you for every human and ape symbol appearing on the screen (bar the scatter). This only applies in the Rise play area and can give you wins of up to 79.5x your total stake.

You then have the Dawn Bonus feature which is triggered when the Dawn Bonus symbol appears on the last reel – ape and human symbols then transform into the same symbol in the Dawn play area. The symbol is chosen at random in case you’re wondering but cannot be the scatter. You can win up to 1,200x your stake here.

Additionally…

...you have the Dual feature which can be triggered at random – 1 symbol is chosen from each play area but cannot be the same symbol in both areas. Once activated…

…the reels will only contain the chosen symbols with the rest of the reels showing blank spaces.

If the symbol lands in its corresponding play area, it will stick – if it lands in the other play area, it will transfer across to the correct play area. You will then get re-spins if at least 1 new symbol appears in its own play area. The re-spins continue until no more new symbols in either area are added. There’s a cool 1,000x your stake to be won.

Now…

...you have the Rise Free Spins feature which is played when 3 or more Rise scatter symbols appear anywhere in the Rise play area – you will get 10 free spins.

 During the Rise Free Spins…

...the wilds are collected and stored in a wild meter – on your last free spin, all collected wilds are randomly added to the play area. In total, you can win up to 600x your stake on each free spin.

The Dawn Free Spins feature is triggered when 3 or more Dawn scatter symbols appear in the play area – you will receive 15 free spins. You need to then collect 3 different symbols to trigger the Multiplier, Extra Wild and Extra Free Spins meter.

When a collect symbol appears…

...the corresponding meter is filled by 1 – when the meter fills, you will get 3 extra free spins (for the Extra Free Spins feature), the multiplier will increase by 1 up to 5x and a human symbol transforms into an extra wild. If you manage to get the multiplier up to 5x, you will then just win more free spins. 

Due to the 5x multiplier, you can win 3,000x your stake on every free spin.

and finally…

...you have the Multiple Free Spins feature which is played when 3 or more scatters land in both play areas – you will then play both the Rise Free Spins feature and Dawn Free Spins feature one after the other (starting with the Rise Free Spins feature).

Our Take

This machine truly captures the atmosphere of the more recent Planet of the Apes movies, and as such, we’re pretty sure this will appeal to fans of the franchise. The special features aren’t as thematically inspired as in many NetEnt productions, but the unique dual reels design and the overall game structure provide more than enough action to satisfy both movie fans and serious gamblers alike.
