Gorilla Go Wild Slots

Gorilla-Go-WildGorilla Go Wild is a game which is inspired by the jungle and its wild inhabitants, at least that’s the impression you get when you look at the creatures which have found their way onto the reels. The game has a modern design, with 3D symbols which animate whenever they’re part of winning combinations. The jungle theme has been part of plenty of slots before, so it’s not like NextGen Gaming came up with something original here, but they did do a better job than many other developers that chose the same topic.

You can expect to be able to cover 25 bet lines with your wagers in this case. The prizes can be impressive, up to $150,000 being offered, and the features are quite fun as well. You can expect multiple types of free spins that can be obtained through the Feature Kingdom option, plus scatter symbols and wilds.

Features of Gorilla Go Wild

Once the game has loaded, and you start spinning its reels, you will find that among its features there are wilds, along with scatters, with bonus games and free spins of different types which you unlock in time.

The Gorilla, a purple creature which is wearing a gold crown on its head, will be the wild symbol in this slot machine. Appearing on all the reels, it tries to help out the usual way, by being a substitute for symbols which are needed to form combinations. The Gorilla has to be in the right place at the right time in order to be of help. It can also pay you directly though, as long as at least two appear on a payline together. Payouts of up to 1,500x are possible this way.

The Jungle Temple is another big part of the game, responsible for the start of the bonus game and also being the one to offer the best prizes of the slot. It awards payouts of 50x to 2,500x when two to five Temples are on the reels.

Gary the Gorilla’s Feature Kingdom

This particular feature starts up if you have the minimum of 3 scattered Temple icons present in the same round. It allows you to pick one of the four types of free spins, each one with a different advantage for you. You have to play this game for some time before you have access to all of them though.


You start off with Gorillionaire Win Spins, and once you’ve played this feature a couple of times you also have access to Stay Wild, and then to Mega-Rilla Multiplier, and finally to More Wilds.

The Gorillionaire Stage gives you 10 winning spins for free and 2x multipliers for all the wins. You can retrigger them, but only once. The winning spins come with guaranteed prizes.

Stay Wild is the next stage, and it’s available starting from the 5th trigger of the Feature Kingdom. 10 free games are won once again, but this time the extra feature gives you sticky wilds. Whenever a wild Gorilla makes an appearance, it will stay in that spot until the free spins are done. You can also retrigger this feature, but only once.

Mega-Rilla is the third type of free spin you can get, but only once you’ve activated Feature Kingdom at least 10 times. The 10 free spins you get here will benefit from multipliers, which start at 1x and go up by 1x each round. The maximum multiplier will be 10x. Once again, you can retrigger this feature, with 10 additional rounds.

Finally, we have More Wilds, a feature which is available once you’ve gotten Feature Kingdom active at least 15 times. As with the others, you have 10 free spins from it. During each free spin, up to three symbols will become wilds on the reels. The Temple scatter is the only one that doesn’t do this.

Gary Goes Bananas

This feature triggers at random, and once a spin is over there is a chance that you will see Gary the Gorilla, as he’s eating a banana. Once the bananas are all eaten, Gary will advance and reach another part of the jungle. A total of 3 times can Gary advance this way, and each time he does this the feature called Gary’s Time will trigger more often.

Gary’s Bonus Time

There is a chance each round, that Gary the Gorilla will give you a prize, randomly chosen between these values (1,000x, 300x, 150x, 100x or 50x the bet). Alternatively, it might give you access to the Feature Kingdom round instead.


Betting options and jackpots

You use 30 coins to cover 25 lines in this game, which is an unusual way of placing a bet. You pick the value of the coins, with $0.01 being the minimum, while $2 is the maximum. You can spend $60 on each round.

The biggest rewards will give you up to 2,500 times the value of the total bet, which in this case means up to $150,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The design of the game looks modern, from the symbols which were used in it, to the wonderful jungle themed surrounding graphics. Most of them look 3D, but in a style which looks like you are inside a game designed for kids. The reels are transparent, so you can see the ancient temple in the distance, and on them there are poker cards, jungle animals and related images.


Symbols: Gorilla (wild, 1,500 coins), Temple (2,500x the bet, scatter), Monkey Gold Coin (1,000 coins), Monkey (500 coins), Toucan (250 coins), Lemur (150 coins), Ace (100 coins), King (100 coins), Queen (75 coins), Jack (75 coins), 10 (50 coins) and 9 (50 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The prizes are impressive enough on their own, but the game also has good graphics and lots of different features to take advantage of. Overall, it’s a game which I highly recommend.

This Gorilla Go Wild slot is offered by all online casinos with NextGen software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
