About Planet of the Apes
2017 was a bumper year for online slot adaptations of hit movies, with several top titles released by a number of slots studios. But in its Planet of the Apes slot, NetEnt doesn’t draw on one hit movie, but two. The Planet of the Apes slot combines Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes into two on screen play areas, each boasting 5 reels and 20 pay-lines. With this dual feature – the visual split is effected superbly – we can enjoy the film’s main characters displayed in stunning visual form and enjoy bonus features that maximise this dual-pronged potential.
Caesar’s Window symbol stands in as this game’s Wild, replacing all symbols except the Scatter, to create winning combinations. When the Wild appears on the Rise area, it triggers Stacked Wilds which can be duplicated on the corresponding reel on the Dawn area.
Other Planet of the Apes bonus features include
Rise Bonus. When the Rise Bonus symbol lands on the first reel we score a cash bonus for every human and ape symbol that appears on our reels.
Dawn Bonus. Landing the Dawn Bonus symbol on the last reel sees human and ape symbols transform into the same matching symbol. We have the potential to win up to 1,200 times our stake.
Dual Feature. The Dual Feature is a randomly triggered bonus where one symbol from each area is chosen at random. When they appear on their respective reels they stick, and when they appear on opposing reels they transport across to the other set, giving us potential for multiple symbol winning combos.
Rise Free Spins. When the Rise Scatter appears three times or more, it awards us 10 free spins. During these spins, any Wild symbols will be stored until the final showdown – one last spin with every one of our collected Wilds added.
Dawn Free Spins. We trigger 15 free spins when the Dawn Scatter appears three times, with the potential for extra spins, bonus multipliers and transforming symbols throughout.
Multiple Free Spins. When three or more Scatters land in both areas, we get to enjoy both bonus features.
