Try King Kong: Island of Skull Mountain Pokie Free

King Kong has always had his own unique motif surrounding his movies and comic books, and it’s one that translates extremely well into a pokie. The reels are surrounded by a spooky night-time jungle setting and flickering torches that illuminate two Kong statuettes. Even the reel icons get involved in the theme, ranging from a menacing and screaming Kong to numerical standard symbols seemingly etched into the side of a jungle temple.

Few movie monsters are more iconic than Kong, so it’s no surprise that he seemingly gets a new pokies every few years. This particular release comes ahead of Kong: Skull Island, a major motion picture from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures set for release in 2017. If the theme in the film matches the feel of this pokie, our review team pledges to be first in-line on release night.

Famous for many things in the online gaming world, Amaya is essentially synonymous with “high-quality online pokies”, particularly ones that carry a licensed theme such as King Kong: Island of Skull Mountain.

Game Features

Island of Skull Mountain features five reels and 243 different ways to win. In a way, it’s also a throwback to the days of simpler pokies, meaning there are no obtrusive animations, mini-games, or cutscenes to distract you from spinning and winning.

The game has two special symbols that serve as wilds in their own special ways. Double the wilds means more frequent potential payouts and really adds to the game’s excitement factor.

Sleek and intuitive, the game’s interface allows for quick adjustments to both your credit’s value and the credits per spin you would like to wager. The autospin feature is also great, allowing you to spin hands-free up to 100 times in a row.

Stake Levels

Kong lets you configure your stakes by selecting both the value of a credit (0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, or 0.25) and the amount of credits wagered per spin (25, 50, 75, 100, or 125). While this might seem a little more complicated than some other Amaya superhero pokies, just know that the game has an extremely detailed paytable to let you know exactly what you stand to win with each bet amount.

King Kong: Island of Skull Mountain Symbols

Standard Symbols

The game has the usual standard symbols of 10, J, Q, K, A, along with four members of the Kong cast, one being the oversized ape himself. The highest payout of these standard icons comes at 500 coins for hitting five-Kongs-of-a-kind on a 25 coin bet, and up to 2500 coins when you place a max bet of 125.

Scatter Symbol

Island of Skull Mountain’s scatter symbol equivalent is the gate. A slightly different type of wild, these gates can appear on any reel and will open to each reveal the same symbol (when more than one appears on a spin).

Wild Symbol

The game’s true wild symbol is the King Kong logo which is found on reels two through five. While these don’t lead to any kind of bonus games or jackpots outright, they can substitute in for any other symbol in order to complete winning paylines.

Free Spins

Neither of the game’s special symbols (King Kong and the gate) leads to any bonus spins, but considering the high potential payouts, this was a very minor flaw to our review team.

Bonus Game

Similarly, you won’t find any separate-screen bonus mode in Island of Skull Mountain. Again though, this pokie is more about straightforward, fast, and high-paying pokies action, not about fancy bells and whistles that sometimes just get in the way more than anything else. 

Jackpot

Kong boasts 243 different ways to win, with the highest possible combination of successful paylines on a single spin being an incredible 50,000 coins. The max reward for just standard symbols is 2500 coins for a max bet that shows five-of-a-kind King Kongs. Even if you like to bet a little smaller, you are still looking at potential payouts in the 750-1500 coin range.

Mobile

Just released in 2016, Kong is an extremely up-to-date pokie in the sense that it offers an HTML5 version for mobile play (in addition to the Flash version for PC or Mac players).
