Planet of the Ape is the newest slot from NetEnt (released 23rd October 2017). It is also likely one of the best movie-themed slots we have ever seen. Let’s look at the game, shall we?
Planet of the Apes is a NetEnt slot. It was released on 23rd October 2017. It is a 5 reel slot. It has 20 fixed paylines. The minimum bet per spin is 20p. The maximum bet per spin is £200. The RTP is 96.33%, which is quite high considering this is a ‘branded’ slot.
This game is gorgeous. There is a reason why companies are more than happy to give their licence to NetEnt (other than the fact that the company makes a ton of cash from it).
It is because NetEnt know how to make a game which really helps to capture the theme. The features that you will in the game, which I will talk about in a second, are things that you will likely have encountered in the past, but they are so heavily-themed that you will barely notice it.
Yes. I said theme a lot there. I am sorry! Long story short; game looks good. You won’t be disappointed.
While there are lots of features packed into the game, it does feel like something that has mainly been made for the newcomer. Most experienced players will have a slot of choice already.
When newcomers enter the fray, they will tend to look for something which is familiar to them. Almost everybody has heard of Planet of the Apes. That being said, the ‘auto play’, which you can set up to 1000 spins, is probably there to entice the more experienced ones.
So, what are the features in this game?
Well, I told a little bit of a porky earlier. NetEnt did include feature that you may not have encountered before. Although, it does pop up in some other games made by different vendors. In Planet of the Apes, it is known as the ‘Dual Symbol Feature’. This is a feature which can trigger on any spin and you could potentially win up to 1000x your initial bet back.
The game spins automatically on occasion and two symbols will be selected. The rest of the reels will be blank. If the selected symbols land in the selected area it becomes a ‘sticky’. This keeps happening until there are no more symbols that stick. You then get your cash.
Stacked wild feature is just the same as any other wild, albeit stacked on occasion. Get five full stacks of wilds on the reels and you will be rewarded with 1,200x your bet. We can’t see this as something that happens often, although the stacked wilds certainly do appear quite a bit.
If you get the rise symbol on reel one in the rise area, you will get a coin win. Maximum you can win here is 15,900 coins.
Rise free spins when you get 3 or more scatters on the reels (they can be anywhere). These are 10 free spins. This plays out a bit differently to how you may expect, however.
The only part of the game active will be the rise play area. Each spin, the wilds will be collected. At the end of the 10 free spins, all collected wilds are put on the reels and you are given cash.
The Planet of the Apes mobile slot, just as you may expect, is brilliant.
NetEnt have really outdone themselves here. That is really saying something considering NetEnt always make brilliant slots.
Somehow, the highly detailed images look even better when you shrink them down. We had no issues playing through the mobile slot. We are perfectly sure you will not too.
If you want a quality slot, then check out Planet of the Apes. Even if you loathe the theme, we can promise you that this is one of this is one of the best slots that NetEnt have pumped out in years.
Beginners and experienced players alike will get something out of it.
