Gorilla Gold Megaways
It’s going to be mental on the slot from Blueprint Gaming and it won’t be just the mighty mammal. Gorilla Gold Megaways is using the Power 4 Play mechanic to combine four Megaways reel sets into one monstrous slot that can deliver wins of up to 20,000 times your bet or 250,000 credits. Completing the highly volatile reel ride are cascading symbols, reactive wins, mystery symbols as well as a free spins and a super spins round with unlimited win multipliers.
Gorilla Gold Megaways is a cascading video slot that can be played on up to four reel sets. Each has 6 reels, up to 7 rows and 324 to 117,649 ways to win (more to that shortly). To unleash the beast on desktop or mobile, you can bet from 0.40 to 40 credits per spin with all four reel sets active. Plus, there is an additional charge of 0.10 to 10 for the Super Bet, bringing the total range to 0.50 to 50 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 97%.
Courtesy of the Megaways engine, you will have a variable number of ways for every spin sequence on each reel set. At the start, 2 to 7 symbols tumble onto reels one and six and 2 to 6 symbols on reels two, three, four and five. Note the extra horizontal reel on top of the game window where more symbols will appear abeam reels two to five.
Overall, the set-up gives you a sheer infinite amount of possible reel and row combinations that range from 324 to 117,649 ways to win per reel set. Take that by four and you could end up with a total of 470,596 ways. A display at the top shows the accumulative amount of active ways for the current spin.
Wins are awarded for two to six matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. The symbols from a combo will set off a chain reaction, shattering and disappearing in the process to make room for new symbols to cascade into the empty spaces. This will continue as long as a new winning combo occurs after a reaction. Wins are accumulated from all cascades and paid before the next spin starts.
A lush jungle scene with a serene lake is opening up when you load the game. Don’t let the tranquil setting fool you though as four wild creatures dominate on the reels. Tribal bongo drums sound throughout the gameplay.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the usual card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 1x to 1.5x your base bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by purple snakes, crocodiles, tigers and the mighty gorilla. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 50x your stake. A tribal tile marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, appearing in the horizontal reel only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. A shiny diamond acts as the scatter.
Gorilla Gold Megaways Slot Features
Starting off the reel mayhem is the Mystery symbol. Any landing in view on the main grids and/or horizontal reels in a spin or free/super spin will reveal a common symbol including the top symbol once the reels have stopped. However, they cannot unveil wild or scatter symbols.
Having four or more diamond scatters in view on one reel set will trigger the Gorilla Gold Bonus feature. A giant wheel will appear on the triggering slot with a range of segments displaying varying amounts of free spins or super spins. It will turn once and the prize stopping on the arrow will be awarded. The number of free spins is based on how many scatters triggered the wheel.
- 4-scatter trigger: win up to 20 free spins or 15 super spins
- 5-scatter trigger: win up to 25 free spins or 20 super spins
- 6-scatter trigger: win up to 30 free spins or 25 super spins
- 7-scatter trigger: win up to 35 free spins or 30 super spins
Before starting the round, you will be presented with the Gamble Wheel where you can risk your won feature and gamble for more free or super spins. Alternatively, you can collect the amount won from the bonus wheel. The first two levels could end in losing the entire round, so some caution might be recommended on spinning the gamble wheel. Spin it as many times as you like until you reach the maximum 35 free spins or 30 super spins. You can, of course, decide to take the won free spins at any stage and head into the respective bonus round.
The standard free spins are played in the usual Megaways fashion on the triggering reel set. The round starts with an x1 win multiplier that will increase by x1 after each winning reaction, no limits. Three or four scatters landing in the horizontal reel will award +5 and +10 additional free spins, again, no limits.
The Super Spins start as well on one reel set and with the unlimited multiplier but you will have the chance to unlock all four by collecting monkey statues that will appear in the horizontal reel. A small display in the centre of the screen will show the current count.
- 5 monkey statues: unlocks the second reel set and awards +5 super spins
- 15 monkey statues: unlocks the third reel set and awards +5 super spins
- 30 monkey statues: unlocks the four reel set and awards +5 super spins
Get ready for absolute jungle mayhem as the action is about to reach its climax once all four reel sets are unlocked. Each set will spin independently and can have up to 117,469 ways. Wins are evaluated consecutively, starting with the top-left grid and the win multiplier increased by x1 after each reaction. Additional free spins cannot be retriggered.
The Bonus Guarantee will activate in case the mayhem ends in a rather lukewarm reel brawl and the total win from the Super Spins round is below 100x your bet. The game will then award once an additional five Super Spins.
If you thought a single Megaways slot is sufficient, think again. Blueprint Gaming is taking it up by quite a few notches with this quad-game that seemed to go mental in all Super Spins round during our test runs. Low-rollers might not be welcoming it as much because 0.50 as the minimum bet is quite steep. Other than that, it is a stellar creation by Blueprint with a fitting win potential of up to 20,000 times your bet or 250,000 credits, whichever is hit first.
