Kong of Skull Island

Kong of Skull Island

This new installment in Ainsworth’s King Kong franchise is themed around this year’s film of the same name, released in February and starting Tom Hiddleston and Samuel L. Jackson. The theme of the famous giant ape creature on a tropical island is played out on Ainsworth’s new premium A640 cabinet.

The base game is a five-reel video slot available in configurations of 30, 40 or 50 paylines. Imagery on the reels depict icons and characters from the film. The primary game includes a mystery Random Multiplier feature. When the man, woman or gate symbol appears in all positions on the first three reels, all wins are randomly multiplied by two, three or five.

Three or more scattered King Kong logo symbols trigger a free-spin bonus events on an expanded reel array. Reels grow on the vertical top monitor for five free games. During the free-spin feature, if the man, woman or gate symbol appears in all positions on one or more reels, it triggers a re-spin feature. All reels outside of the ones triggering the feature are re-spun once, and the re-spin feature can be retriggered.

The Random Multiplier feature also applies during the free spins—if man, woman and gate line up on all positions of the first three reels at the end of a re-spin, all wins are multiplied by two, three or five.
