If you have never played pokies online then our guide to playing pokies online covers everything you need to know.
Kong – The 8th Wonder of the World is a feature packed online pokie found at Playtech casinos. It is based on the 2005 film which starred Naomi Watts and Jack Black. The game uses the 5 reel, 20 line reel layout and has four different features where you can win some serious cash. It has impressive graphics with some scenes from the movie included in some features.
Maximum bet on King Kong is 20 credits per spin and you can choose from the following credit sizes – 0.01, 0.05, 0.10, 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00 and 5.00. This means you can spin with all lines active for as little as $0.20 or as much as $100 per game.
Kong is almost like two games in one. You have the Jungle Mode with a Wild Jungle Re-Spin Feature and a Skull Island Bonus and you have the Big City Mode with Wild Kong Re-Spins and the City Tower Bonus. The pay table remains the same for both game modes.
The King Kong symbol is the top paying symbol with a 3,000 credit win for five on any active lines. Second highest win is for five Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) symbols and this pays 1,000 credits. From here the movie character symbols make up the next highest pays while the A through 10 symbols come in with all of the lower wins.
The first game mode is the Jungle Mode. In this stage of the game you have two possible features that you can win. These are the Wild Jungle Re-Spins and the Skull Island Bonus. You win the re-spin feature by getting three or more King Kong symbols anywhere on the screen. You then win three re-spins with any additional wild King Kong symbols held for the remaining spins.
Three or more King Kong logos during Jungle Mode award the Skull Island Bonus. This is a second screen feature where you click points on a map to reveal symbols. If you reveal King Kong you win 30X your total bet. If you match three other symbols you win between 10X and 20X your bet. After the Skull Island feature you move on to the Big City game mode.
Big City Mode also offers two features. These are the Wild Kong Re-Spins and the City Tower Bonus. The Wild Kong Re-Spins are triggered by getting three or more King Kong symbols anywhere on the reels. You then win three free games with wild reels. On the first spin reels 1 and 5 are wild, on the second reels 2 and 4 are wild and on the third reels 1, 3 and 5 are wild.
Three or more King Kong logos during Big City mode trigger the City Tower Bonus. Here you have a great animated feature with King Kong on top of a building. Pick which way to smash the planes and you win a bonus prize. After three picks you get your total win and move back to Jungle Mode.
Kong offers a lot of variety when it comes to features. We like the fact that there are several types of free spins and you can get big wins while changing between modes. If you are a fan of the film then this is a must play. Even if you’re not a fan of the film the game offers enough to make it one of the most popular online pokies.
