Ainsworth Game Technology

King Kong

This game takes one of the rare licensed brands that Ainsworth has released and places it on the sleek, new A640 cabinet. That format features dual 24-inch LCD monitors framed by a matte black finish that lends a cinematic feel, which is particularly appropriate for this theme based on the 2005 remake of the classic King Kong film directed by Peter Jackson.

The base game is a five-reel video slot available in 30-line, 40-line or 50-line configurations. A mystery event in the primary game multiplies winnings for certain combinations. When the “Woman,” “Man” or “Empire” symbols appear in all positions on the third, fourth and fifth reels, all wins are randomly multiplied by two, three or five.

Three or more scattered logo symbols trigger a free-spin event on an expanded reel array. Reels expand to nine rows high for the event, increasing the number of paylines for the free-spin round. During the free-spin round, landing two or more scattered logo symbols triggers and additional five free games.
