It is hard to imagine that we evolved from these muscular jungle creatures. It’s equally hard to understand why it would be an evolutionary advantage to lose the fur, the strength, the endurance, and the ability to sleep literally anywhere in the wilderness. Yet here we are, many thousands of years later, trying our luck at jungle slots that represent our ancestors still stuck in the jungle.
Gorilla Mayhem plays amidst a lush and humid jungle with animal symbols that come alive when they are part of a win. The spin speed is excellent when Turbo is turned on, not to mention when the space bar is held down. You get special golden gorilla wilds that connect with the top-notch gorilla to give you multiplier boost wins. The bonus round has 3 levels and a 5,000x potential with a decent probability of 1 in 1,612,900.
Bonus Features at Gorilla Mayhem Slot
The premium animal symbols pay between 1.5 and 4 times your bet for 5 matches and there are 2 different wild symbols in this game. The regular wild appears only on reels 2 through 5 and substitutes for all payout symbols to complete wins.
The golden gorilla wild also appears on reels 2 through 5, but only substitutes for the prime gorilla symbol. The golden wild comes with 1, 2 or 3 gorilla heads that correspond to a x1, x2 or x3 multiplier that increases gorilla symbol wins only.
The turquoise rough diamond is the scatter symbol, and you need to land at least 3 to trigger the bonus round. More specifically, you will win 10, 15 or 20 free spins if 3, 4 or 5 scatters land, and you can retrigger the feature in the same way. However, only 2 scatters are needed in the same free spin to win +5 additional spins.
Both regular gorilla symbols and the golden gorilla wild symbol are collected when they appear in the bonus round. The feature is taken to a new level once 40 Gorilla symbols are collected and you get the regular wild multiplier values in the standard starting level.
At level 2, you will get only x2 or x3 wild multipliers and at level 3, you will get only x3 wild multipliers. You will also receive +3 extra spins every time you level up. Players outside the UK can buy the bonus round for 80x the bet, which grants 3+ scatter symbols on the next spin. The RTP is the same as usual when buying the feature.
The 200 Spins Gorilla Mayhem Slot Experience
Nothing too exciting happened in the base game, so you can confidently skip to 0:45, where we buy the bonus round. We got 3 triggering scatters that earned us 10 free spins, and the feature will play for the rest of the 2:32 minute highlight video. See for yourself by clicking the play button below.
Visually, we prefer NetENT’s eerily similar Gorilla Kingdom, but in terms of features, we lean more towards Pragmatic Play’s Gorilla Mayhem. The golden wild multiplier system selects the top symbol for the biggest possible wins, and selective multiplier wilds aren’t something we can remember seeing before. You have normal wilds for smaller wins anyway, so this system is fine for us.
The bonus round can be extended via both scatters and the level up collect system, and reaching level 2 didn’t seem too hard. It helps to get rid of the x1 “multiplier” wild, though it’s not exactly revolutionary either. Still, it tilts the game more in your favor, which can be enough to approach the 5,000x potential. Gorilla Mayhem may not be particularly original or innovative, but it has its moments due to clever features that favor the highest symbol.
