Try King Kong Pokie Free

Amaya’s King Kong pokie is officially licensed and proudly bears the monster’s logo and artwork all over.  

As you spin and ultimately try and help Kong smash some pesky planes, you will find:

  • King Kong Goes Ape bonus feature
  • Five reels with an adjustable 25 paylines
  • King Kong Smash bonus offering free spins

Debuting in 1933, King Kong’s original film of the same name was considered a ground-breaking use of music and stop-animation. Since then, he has become one of the world’s most iconic movie villains (though at times he plays more of a lovable anti-hero). Considering he’s been in many more movies (and comic books, and stage plays, and cartoons...) since, it’s no shocker that Amaya went ahead and gave the beast a pokie, too.

Amaya is known for many reasons, one being that they are the world’s largest publicly traded online gaming company. However even the most casual of pokies players can tell you that Amaya makes some of the best online slots out there, many of which carry the official licensing for your favourite superheroes.

Game Features

Kong greets you with a roar and some 1930s music reminiscent of the original movie when you open up this Amaya pokie. In the back, moving spotlights and a cityscape of New York at night add to the game experience. Some of the symbols have nice effects that add to the ambience as well, such as the screen “rumbling” when Kong appears on the third reel.

The game has two bonus features, King Kong Smash and King Goes Ape. We’ll go into more detail about each below, but Smash rewards you with free spins (number dependent upon how many planes Kong smashes) and Ape adds an insane amount of wilds to the reels for one spin.

Our reviewers love games that have multiple interesting bonuses, and King Kong does not disappoint here. To boot, the standard symbols in the game have higher than average payouts compared to Amaya’s other superhero/villain pokies titles.

Stake Levels

Low, mid, and high-rollers will all appreciate the diverse range of betting stakes found in King Kong. Wagers can be made in increments of 0.01-0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, and any amount from $1-20.

King Kong Symbols

Standard Symbols

The game’s higher paying standard symbols are Ann Darrow (pays 7500 coins for five of a kind), Jack Driscoll (1000), and airplanes and dinosaurs (500 each). On the lower-paying end and more common are ships and crabs (200 each for five of a kind), movie cameras and skulls (150 each), and handcuffs and movie tickets (100 each).

Scatter Symbol

The King Kong logo is the scatter symbol, and you’ll know when it shows due to the ominous tone it produces. It awards payouts when it appears more than once (1 coin for showing twice and up to 100 coins for five times) and it triggers the King Kong Smash feature when three or more appear left to right.

Wild Symbol

The wild (or “substitute”) symbol here is a roaring King Kong, who appears only on reels two, three, and four. As a wild, he can fill in to complete paylines in place of all other symbols (except scatter symbols). Get Kong to show on reel three and you will be rewarded with the King Kong Goes Ape bonus (see below).

Free Spins

Both bonus features involve rewarding you with free spins. When King Kong Goes Ape is triggered, you will get a single free bonus spin (albeit one with an entire reel of wilds in play). For King Kong Smash, the amount of free spins you earn depends on how many planes Kong smashes (up until he misses three times).

Bonus Game

The main bonus feature in this game is King Kong Smash, activated when three scatter symbols show from left to right on a spin. You will then click to select planes for King Kong to smash, and will continue to do so until he misses three times. For every plane smashed, the amount of free spins you get increases. If you are lucky enough to activate this bonus feature again during your free spins, you’ll get rewarded with the same amount of bonus spins that you earned previously.

If plane smashing isn’t your thing, you may also choose to reject the free games in place of one of three mystery prizes. Just know that this will forfeit the bonus spins you had coming.

There is also a smaller bonus “game” (really one spin) called King Kong Goes Ape, activated when King Kong appears on reel three. This turns every symbol on reel three (and sometimes a few on reels two and four) into a wild for one free spin.


Ann Darrow carries a relatively high jackpot for a standard symbol at a massive 7500 coins for five of a kind.


While both PC and Mac gamers can enjoy Amaya’s King Kong without issue, the game is not supported on mobile devices at this time.
