Gorilla Go Wild is a bright, cartoon slot from NextGen Gaming with one of the cutest mascots in the business, Gary the Gorilla. Gary the purple gorilla sits to the side of the reels while players spin, munching on bananas and just generally looking cute.
The slots are set in the jungle, and the more you play the deeper into the jungle you’ll go.
Gorilla Go Wild is a 25 payline slot featuring five reels of symbols which players must line up across paylines to win. The highest paying symbol in the game is the golden monkey coin, which pays out between 5x and 1000x the bet for two to five symbols on a payline. Next up is the purple monkey, who pays between 25x and 500x the bet for three to five symbols, while lower valued symbols include the A to 9 symbols which pay out between 100x and 50x the bet for five symbols on a payline.
Gorilla Go Wild still stands out from the crowd for its interesting features despite dating back to 2015. First of all, Gary the Gorilla isn’t just eating those bananas at the side of the reels to look cute; once he finishes the bunch, he’ll move on further into the jungle and bring you with him, raising the chances of triggering Gary’s Bonus Time as you go. Gary’s Bonus Time is a randomly triggered bonus which will either award players a cash prize or entry to Gary’s Feature Kingdom, the main feature of the game. Gary’s Feature Kingdom regularly triggers when three or more temple Scatter symbols land on the reels; this will allow players to choose their favourite Free Spins feature to play. At the start of the game, just one Free Spins mode will be available, but the more players spin the reels and trigger the bonus, the more choices players will have.
Gorilla Go Wild offers an average RTP of between 92% to 96% depending on the casino you’re playing at; this means that some casinos will offer the slot at a higher RTP than others, and players on average can expect to win back between $92 and $96 when they spend $100 on the reels. This is somewhere between low and average, so it’s worth checking at your casino before spinning the reels. It’s a medium to high variance slot, too, so be prepared to spin for some time before seeing those wins roll in.
Gorilla Go Wild still maintains a loyal fanbase despite its age, no doubt in part due to the variety of features on offer and the highly playable nature of the game. It’s fun to play a slot which gets progressively more lucrative the longer you play for, and once you’re deeper into the jungle it Gary’s Bonus Time triggers more and more, providing more wins and free spins. Gorilla Go Wild is a fun slot, but just be sure to check that RTP.
