The original King Kong classic, the brainchild of producer Merian C. Cooper, came to life in 1933 through the wizardry of stop-motion photography. NextGen Gaming brings the big screen fantasy tale to the slot screen in its 5×3, 25-payline King Kong online game.
With a focus on Kong’s adventure in New York City, you’ll see him trying to hit planes out of the sky for free spins or randomly appear with expanded wilds as he smashes to spread wilds to other reels.

Bonus and jackpots for King Kong (Rating of 3.5/5)
You can expect to find no shortage of excitement when these King Kong bonus features appear.
King Kong Goes Ape feature
When a King Kong wild appears on reel three during the main game, it expands and changes into a wild reel. The wild reel then transforms into an animated Kong inflicting damage to reels two and four, which may add extra wilds, before he escapes into the city.
King Kong Smash feature
When three or more logo scatters appear in a row from left to right, starting with reel one, you have a chance for up to 150 free spins. An animated King Kong is perched on top of the Empire State Building while planes fly back and forth at varying speeds. You pick to smash right or left, which causes him to punch at the planes. The first plane he hits awards you 15 free spins, the second gives you 25 and each one after that awards an additional 25 until you reach the maximum of 150. The feature ends when you reach the maximum or when he misses three times.
When the smash feature ends, you’re given a choice between the number of free spins you’ve earned or cash award mystery prizes A, B, or C. The prize may be roughly equivalent to what you would win during the free spins.
When three or more King Kong logo scatters appear during the free spins, they retrigger the same number of free games you earned during the King Kong Smash feature. You can retrigger free spins multiple times. All wins during this feature are doubled.
King Kong graphics and visuals (Rating of 4/5)
Framed by a moonlit cityscape, the reel set of the King Kong slot contains symbols that are related to the original classic movie, including the lower-paying ship, crab, planes, movie camera, skull, handcuffs, and tickets. The higher-paying symbols are Ann, Jack, dinosaurs, and planes, with King Kong as the wild and the logo as the scatter. The animations are a bit twitchy but true to the stop-motion filming technique used in the original movie. Overall, the graphics are good and fit the theme well.
King Kong gameplay (Rating of 4/5)
One of the features on King Kong that makes it so exciting is the ability to retrigger the free games won during the King Kong Smash feature. While some slots include possibilities that are rarely realized by average players, it’s fairly easy to get past the 15-spin level to higher numbers of free games on this one. The ability to retrigger the free games over and over to potentially have hundreds of free spins is pretty amazing. On top of that, the slot is easy to understand for new players and has fast win tallies to keep things moving.
