If you’re a fan of the movies, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, you’ll be excited to hear that you can now enjoy the drama and excitement of both films in the all-new online slot game from NetEnt. If you’re wondering exactly how one slot can cover both movies, the answer lies in the reel structure, which includes two five-by-five sets of reels – one for Rise and one for Dawn. It means that in total, you get a ten-reel game with forty paylines that can be played on desktops and mobiles with between 20p and £200 per spin. And, as if this wasn’t an exciting enough prospect, the Planet of the Apes slot game also features a Rise Bonus, Stacked Wilds, a Dual Feature, Rise Free Spins, Dawn Free Spins, and a Dawn Bonus!
The slot game is cleverly designed to give you two playing areas. The Rise reels are on the left of the screen while the Dawn reels are on the right. Both sets spin simultaneously. Stills from the 2011 film featuring James Franco and Andy Serkis are used for Rise and clips from the 2014 movie starring Jason Clarke, and Gary Oldman are used for Dawn. The original soundtrack provides the background music. As per most NetEnt online slot games, the game gives you the option to choose from ten different bet levels and coin values ranging from 0.01 to 1.00.
A circular gold-and-black wild symbol and a circular red-and-gold wild symbol are used on the Dawn and Rise reels respectively. Both can be used to make winning combinations by replacing all symbols except scatters and bonus symbols. If three wilds occupy an entire reel on the Rise reels, the Stacked Wild Feature mirrors them across to the same reel on the Dawn reels.
Each set of reels in the Planet of the Apes slot has its own scatter symbol which is represented by the Dawn and Rise film logos. Three scatters appearing anywhere on the respective reel set triggers the Free Spins Bonus, which awards fifteen free games for Dawn and ten free games for Rise. With Dawn Free Spins, three new symbols are used (Multiplier, Extra Wild, and Extra Free Spins), and in Rise Free Spins, all of the wilds that appear during the feature are collected ready for your final free spin.
The Planet of the Apes slot game comes with three further bonus features. The Dawn Bonus Feature is initiated when the Dawn Bonus symbol lands on Reel 5, and it instantly turns any ape and human symbols into the same symbol. The Rise Bonus occurs when the Rise Bonus symbol lands anywhere on Reel 1, and it awards a coin win for every human and ape.
There’s a chance that the Dual Feature will be triggered at the beginning of any spin, and it automatically picks one symbol from each set of reels before granting you a re-spin. If one of the chosen symbols lands on the corresponding reel set when the reels stop, it sticks in position while a further re-spin occurs, and if the symbol lands on the opposing reel set, it’s transferred over to the corresponding position of the correct playing area.
