Planet of the Apes is one of NetEnt's movie-themed slot. If you have watched the movie of the same name, here is your opportunity to re-experience the movie. Caesar, the commander of the army of apes, has re-appeared on the slot reels. The slot has a splendid introductory clip, taken straight from the movie. It serves to enhance the movie experience the slot intends to deliver.
Planet of the Apes is a dual reel slot. Although it has five reels, each reel represents a set of two reels. The reels are further divided into two play areas—Rise and Dawn. As you spin the reels of this slot, you can meet and interact with various characters from the movie. In addition, there are the usual high-value card symbols.
Planet of the Apes slot has forty paylines, up to ten betting levels, and coin values such as 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, and 1.00. If you are feeling adventurous, you can click on the Max Bet button and place the maximum bet that the game offers.
You can also personalize your gaming experience as you wish. For example, you can use the settings button at the bottom left of the reels to alter the game settings. You can also turn the sound effects up or down, play automatically, and click on either the info symbol or the question mark symbol at the bottom of the reels for more information.
Planet of the Apes comes with plenty of winning opportunities. You have a Rise wild and a Dawn wild, and both can give you 500 coins if you land five of them across an active payline. To win double that amount, you have to land five Rise scatters or five Dawn scatters anywhere on the reels. The ape symbols for Rise as well as Dawn can pay 600 coins or 400 coins, depending on the ape in your combination. All the movie characters can fetch you a cool prize of 180 coins, provided you land five of them along an active payline. The slot, with its wilds and scatters, free spins, dual reel feature, and others, can really put the coins in your pocket.
Planet of the Apes has two sets of wilds and two sets of scatters, one for Rise and one for Dawn. The payouts, however, are the same. If you land five wilds along a payline, you will win 600 coins. The prize reduces to 150 coins if your combination contains only four wilds.
The game logo symbols are the scatters. If you land five scatters anywhere on the reels, you can take home a jackpot of 1000 coins. If your combination contains only four scatters, your prize will reduce to 300 coins.
The dual feature gets activated at random at the beginning of each spin. If this happens, the game software selects a symbol at random for each play area. However, the same symbol is not selected for both play areas. The wild and the scatter symbol are not chosen.
If the symbol lands in the correct play area, it sticks for the next spin. If the symbol lands in the wrong play area, it moves over to the correct play area and then sticks in position for the next spin.
You can activate the Rise Bonus Feature by landing the Rise Bonus symbol on the first reel. When this happens, you will receive extra coin wins for each ape and human symbol on the Rise play area.
You can activate the Dawn Bonus Feature by landing the Dawn Bonus symbol on the last reel. When this happens, the human and ape symbols are transformed into the same symbol in the Dawn play area.
If you get a reel full of wilds in the Rise play area, the stacked wild feature gets activated. These stacked wilds are then duplicated in the Dawn play area so that you can win extra payouts.
To activate this feature and get 10 free spins, you must land at least three scatter symbols anywhere in the Rise play area. All the wild symbols that appear during the free spins will be collected, and when the last free game is played, the wild symbols are randomly displayed on the play area.
To unlock 15 free spins, you should land at least three scatter symbols in the Dawn play area. The free spins feature three collect symbols that activate meters such as multipliers, extra free spins, and extra wild. Whenever you get a collect symbol on the reels, the meter corresponding to that symbol fills by one. When it fills completely, the corresponding features get activated.
NetEnt's Planet of the Apes is compatible with a variety of Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. You can access the slot without having to download any third-party software or app. You just have to tap on the game icon to load it in your browser smoothly and instantly. Just make sure that you have a fast Internet connection.
We think Planet of the Apes is one of those slots that should not be played. It is like playing two slots simultaneously. The payouts are generous and the movie experience the slot delivers is unbeatable.
