Planet of the Apes
Building on the success of the hit Hollywood franchise, NetEnt has partnered with 20th Century Fox to create the Planet of the Apes online video slot. This game features TWO playing areas packed full of extra features including the Rise and Dawn Free Spins, bonus and scatter symbols, Wild substitutions, Stacked Wilds, a Dual feature and the Rise and Dawn bonus game.
Two Games in One
Planet of the Apes includes two separate playing boards. Each is a 5-reel, 3-row, 20-payline video slot featuring characters and symbols from the Planet of the Apes film franchise. During the Dual Feature, these two boards interact with symbols switching between playing areas if that symbol is needed for a win on the other board.
Rise Bonus Feature
This bonus is triggered if the Rise Bonus symbol lands on the first reel. This awards a coin win for every human and ape symbol that appears on the Rise play area.
Dawn Bonus Feature
On the Dawn play area, a Dawn Bonus symbol landing on the last reel will initiate this bonus game. This will transform all human and ape symbols into the same symbol. If one or more winning pay lines are already present, the highest value symbol will be chosen. If no winning pay lines hit, a random symbol will be selected.
At random, the Dual feature can be triggered. One symbol is randomly selected for each of the Rise and Dawn playing areas. The reels will then spin which contain only these two symbols and blank spaces. When the reels stop spinning, any of these symbols that land will “stick” to the reels and another spin will commence. These symbols don’t have to land on the correct board. If the required symbol for the Dawn playing area land on the Rise reels, this symbol will be transported to the appropriate playing area and vice versa. Once the reels have spun with no additional symbols landing, the respins will end.
Rise Free Spins
If 3 or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels in the Rise playing area, the Rise Free Spins game will begin. During these 10 free spins, each Wild that lands on the reels will be collected in the Wild meter. After the reels stop spinning on the last spin, these collected Wilds will be randomly placed in the playing area and the win will then be tallied.
Dawn Free Spins
Three or more scatter symbols landing in the Dawn playing area will trigger the Dawn Free Spins. There are 3 meters in this bonus that tally up the following symbols: Multiplier, Extra Wild, and Extra Free Spins. Each requires 3 symbols to fill the corresponding meter.
When the Extra Free Spins meter is filled, 3 additional spins will be awarded.
A full Multiplier meter increases the multiplier by 1x. This can be repeated until the player reaches a max of 5x multiplier.
A full Extra Wild meter will convert one of the human symbols into a Wild symbol for the remainder of the game.
In the event that the multiplier is maxed out and all the human symbols have been transformed into Wilds, any additional Extra Wild or Multiplier symbols will become Extra Free Spin symbols. Unlike the other 2 symbols, there is no limit to the amount of additional free spins a player may be awarded.
If 3 or more scatters land in each playing area on one spin, both Free Spins bonuses will be awarded with the Rise bonus occurring first.
