Apex Gorilla

This is one of the first group of games on Aruze’s new “Cube-X Innovator” cabinet and game series. The base game is a five-reel, 30-line stepper slot with a free-game bonus event in which all wins are doubled.

The game is a straightforward multi-line video slot with an extra feature determining the number of games in the free-spin bonus. Five or more bonus symbols trigger the Gorilla Bonus, which begins with the Free Games Number Selection. A screen appears displaying a roulette wheel, used to determine a number of free spins.

The number of bonus symbols appearing on the three-by-five reel set determines how many hidden numbers on the roulette wheel appear to unveil numbers of free spins, ranging from one selection for five bonus symbols to seven selections for 10 symbols.

Each selection uncovers a number of free spins, up to a maximum of 100. If all of them have been revealed and no selections are left, the original numbers of spins reappear—meaning with a little luck, the player can be awarded hundreds of free spins. With all wins doubled in the free spins, the result can be lucrative, making the free-spin round the most compelling aspect of the game for players.

The bonus retriggers if the bonus symbols land during a free spin.
