Get ready to go ape at EnergyCasino, with NetEnt’s latest epic movie-based slot: Planet of the Apes!
Some movies are so ingrained in our collective consciousness that they seem to exist every bit as firmly as the reality we live in, even if their storylines are very definitely ‘out there’ – and no movie franchise illustrates this better than Planet of the Apes!
Including original 1960’s and 1970’s films, there have been no fewer than 9 feature film instalments of this epic saga (Planet of the Apes, 1968, Beneath the Planet of the Apes, 1970, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, 1971, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, 1972, Battle for the Planet of the Apes, 1973, Planet of the Apes, 2001, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 2011, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014, and War for the Planet of the Apes, 2017), plus two television series between 1974 and 1976, and three video games! So, it is perhaps only surprising that it has taken this long for an official Planet of the Apes video slot to be released!
But, the wait has been worth it, because NetEnt, in association with 20th Century Fox, has created an instant classic! Interestingly, the slot is based on two movies at once, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, with a split, dual-reel screen that immerses players in both periods of the life of Caesar, the Ape Army leader!
The Rise and Dawn areas both have 5-reels, 3-rows, and 20-lines (fixed) each, and the games is packed with exciting features including Rise and Dawn Free Spins, Bonus symbols, Scatter symbols, Wild substitutions, a Stacked Wild feature, a Dual feature and special Rise and Dawn Bonus features.
Boasting genuine movie footage in the intro, rich graphics, immersive sounds, and iconic characters like Caesar, Koba, Will Rodman (James Franco), Caroline Aranha (Freida Pinto), Charles Rodman (John Lithgow), Malcolm (Jason Clarke), Drefus (Gary Oldman), and Ellie (Keri Russell), the Planet of the Apes slot is impressively authentic and captures the dramatic atmosphere of the movies beautifully.
Anyone else feel like a Planet of the Apes fest? Grab the popcorn, watch all the movies back-to-back, and get spinning on the brand-new Planet of the Apes slot at EnergyCasino! Of course, the real question is, will you be rooting for the humans or will the ape inside you rise?
