Gorilla Chief 2 Slot Game
There is something intensive about the way the main gorilla symbols stare out from the reels at you in this game. You’ll be pleased to see this symbol, not only does it come stacked (covering all 4 positions on a reel sometimes), this symbol is wild. It will make a lot of wins with the other jungle-based symbols, such as parrots, leopards and other gorilla symbols.
There are two notable features which make this slot interesting. First the respin feature, which can get the screen covered in a lot of the same symbol. Second the free-spins feature, where you’ll get big wins from even more of the stacked and wild gorillas. Like all WMS slots this game shows the attention to detail and lavish production of a slot which started life in live casinos and later made the transition online.
Gorilla Chief 2 Bonus Games
One bonus game is triggered at random during regular play. This is the respin feature. One of the symbols will come stacked, with flames around the reel, and the word respin appears on top of the reels. The reels then spin again, with the highlighted symbols locked into place. If you hit more of that symbol or the wild gorilla, those too become stuck, and another spin occurs. This continues until you get a spin with no more of your symbol or wilds, at which point you may well have a large number of winning lines!
The other bonus game takes you (via an attractive jungle scene) to a new set of reels with a big gorilla in the background frame. You get 10 spins, and see your wins accumulate as they run through. With a lot of stacked wild gorilla symbols, there is the chance of accumulating some nice wins during this feature. You can retrigger it, by hitting 3+ more of the African sunset symbols.
Playing Gorilla Chief 2
This slot has 50 win lines, which cover 5 reels which each have 4 rows of symbols. Unlike many slots, you do not need to choose how many lines to play – the number is fixed at 50. Instead you choose the amount you want to spin for from a list ranging from 40c, all the way up to $200. Auto-spin is available.
All of the animal symbols have the same pay-out in this game, paying 3.5x your total spin amount. These are the gorilla in side-profile, baby gorilla, parrots, leopard, lizard, toucan and butterfly. You will often hit multiple wins together, so these small wins are important in keeping your bankroll ticking over waiting for a bigger win amount. The remaining regular symbols are the bananas, and 2 different kinds of flowers which have smaller win amounts.
The wild gorilla is the one staring from the reels at you, this substitutes for all of the regular symbols covered above. You will often find several reels with these symbols covering 2, 3 or even 4 rows. This is how you hit the bigger wins on this slot, with 10+ win-lines hitting at once a reasonably regular occurrence.
African sunsets are the feature symbol, 3+ of these triggers the free spins bonus game – though they do not have separate scatter prizes of their own.
Gorilla Chief 2 Conclusion
Another successful live slot which WMS has brought online and another very entertaining game too. The production feels different to online-only slots, which is a big positive for most of the WMS range. While the base game is nothing spectacular, the randomly triggered respin feature does add an exciting edge on occasion. You do have the potential to cover a lot of the screen in the same symbol when things go well. The free spins bonus is fairly ordinary, though again there is the potential to accumulate some bigger wins.
In a crowded niche (jungle / wild animal slots), the graphics and attention to detail is what makes Gorilla Chief stand out.
