Running Through the Jungle
Slot games based in the jungle certainly aren’t new; in fact they are pretty common these days. However, jungle-focused slot games that look the part are actually few and far between. Gorilla Go Wild is a title that really carries a fun-loving vibe, with the game being mischievous through and through. The game (largely through its UI) features a raft of bubbly characters, which includes a smiling purple gorilla that is positioned to the left of the reels. Seldom does a real money slots title just feel happy, which is probably why Gorilla Go Wild appears as something unique.
Dragging Its Feet
The UI of Gorilla Go Wild is so welcoming, you can imagine how let down we felt by the gameplay here. Through 5 reels, 3 rows, and 25 paylines, the game pretty much plays out like any other medium variance game from NextGen. Saying that, the gameplay of Gorilla Go Wild isn’t necessarily bad per say; we just feel that with the clear design investment, NextGen could have done so much more here. For reference, the minimum wager in this game is 0.30, while big spenders can freely lay down 150.00
Chowing down on Bananas
It’s time to rub your hands together with glee, as Gorilla Go Wild quite literally goes wild when it comes to bonus features. Don’t take that statement lightly either, as the added extras really are the beating heart of this title. First, you have Gary’s Bonus Time, where Gary the Gorilla will reward you with a cash prize with up to 40x your wager or entry into Gary the Gorilla’s Feature Kingdom feature. Next up, the Gary Goes Bananas feature will see Gary eat bananas and progress through to other areas within the in-game map, grabbing you bonuses as he goes.
The show-stealing bonus features in Gorilla Go Wild are the Gorilla’s Feature Kingdom and Gorillionaire Win Spins. Both of these features are a little bit over the top for our money, but in free spins and prize multipliers you can’t really fault what they serve up. In a final side note, Gorilla Go Wild also includes the wilds and scatters that give the base game a bit of a boost.
Riding in the Caboose
We are going to be up front and say that you aren’t going to find any other slot game that can match Gorilla Go Wild when it comes to bonus features, as this game goes above and beyond. That being saying, looking strictly at the base game, there are few comparisons that you can make to other slot games out there. Putting out a similar experience to Gorilla Go Wild on a base level, we would probably direct players towards both Loose Caboose and Drone Warns if they want to play something that is in some degree along the same lines.
Go for Broke in Gorilla Go Wild!
Gorilla Go Wild is without any shadow of a doubt one of the best games that NextGen has ever released, as in quality it simply blew us away. Yes, the base gameplay is somewhat deflating in parts, but you can’t deny the sheer spectacle of the fun theme and the locked and loaded bonus features. Roaring with pride, anyone who enjoys online slots will get a real kick out of Gorilla Go Wild for sure!
