Wild Ape Online Slot Game
Go deep into the jungle with Wild Ape, and online slot game from ISOFTBET. Beautiful scenery sits in the background as players spin the reels of slots filled with exotic animals. Bets stay fairly low in this 5 reel, 20 payline slot game. Strong animation may be enough for some players to play Wild Ape. But be warned, wins can be tough to come by and bonus games, though profitable, can take a while to achieve. So high rollers beware and adjust your betting patterns accordingly. So enjoy the well-drawn animals and scenery while you keep a close eye on those bets as you play Wild Ape.
The theme of Wild Ape is the African jungle. More specifically, the animals that populate those jungles. Though the scenery behind the slot reels is largely still (there are moving bugs and butterflies that fly around), the scene sets a beautiful backdrop for the game. The music offers a jungle cruise vibe, part African, part South American. I am assuming this game sets itself in the jungles of Africa since that is where most of the animals are known to be from. Players begin with 1000 credits. The low credit balance maybe why players are limited in their betting. Players can bet using coin value only. Use 0.01 to 1.00 as the range of bets.
Coins and Balance
The coin value automatically adjusts the total bet. Players can place a max bet of 20. That doesn’t sound like a lot. But if you bet 20 each spin and don’t win, that 1000 credit balance will disappear quickly. Autoplay works up to 1000 spins. Players can also set terms for maximum win or loss to stop autoplay. And autoplay stops automatically for bonus levels. And unlike many games, the autoplay resumes from wherever you left off before the bonus features started.
Wild Ape features 11 symbols. The standard royals serve as the low payout symbols. Listed in order from smallest to largest payout, they are 10, J, Q, K, and A. The high payout symbols are all animals. The Toucan is the lowest of the animal symbols. The lemur (made famous by the movie Madagascar) is next in line. The gator comes up next, with payouts of 400 for x5. And the ape (the game’s namesake), offers the highest payouts, paying out 500 for x5.
The wild symbol is a pair of strict looking ape eyes that replace any symbol but the bonus symbol. And the bonus symbol appears on reels 1, 3, and 5. Wild Ape features two extra levels. The first (and hardest to achieve) is the Wild Ape Respins. Players who land three consecutive stacks of Ape symbols trigger this feature. The game rewards players with three respins during this level. During those respins, all ape symbols turn into wilds (in addition to any wilds already on the reels). Reels will also extend from 5 x 3 to 5 x 5. The bonus symbol triggers the bonus wheel.
Players can land a bonus symbol on reels 1, 3, and 5. The wheel spins to award players both free spins and a certain number of extra wilds. Those wilds are then placed on the reels. Players run their number of spins and benefit from the newly placed wilds for big wins. The bonus level also extends the reels. And both bonus and free spin levels double the number of paylines from 20 to 40.
Review of Wild Ape
Big wins can be tough to come by in Wild Ape, especially if you bid high early in the game. That doesn’t mean you can’t achieve them. The bonus wheel offers huge rewards and appears enough to justify staying in the game even when losses are mounting. The varied levels and animation are also big plusses for Wild Ape, an online slot game that rewards patience and caution.
