Lace up your hiking boots and fill your water bottle, because Epic Ape online slot is bringing the jungle to you, with enough free spins and ways to win to down a giant gorilla. Playtech are the studio behind this simian inspired spectacle and they’ve put together something that might just have you swinging from the light fittings in your living room.
This game is definitely something that will please free spins enthusiasts. It also has a massive 4096 ways to win reel system on its 6 reels and 4 rows, which has to be one of the highest we’ve seen in an online slot. There isn’t an animated intro video to the game but rather we’re lead straight to the reels. Here you’ll discover a jungle setting with fireflies floating across the screen. The reels lie front and centre with all the game prompts lying below the reels, such as the spin button, auto play, turbo mode etc.
The minimum bet in Epic Ape online slot is £0.40, which is a good place to find your footing but not what you want to be spinning at to land big wins. When you’re done monkeying about with the minimum bet amount move closer to the max bet of £80 per spin, which will move you closer to the jackpot of £75000.00. The amount of ways to win are fantastic to have but Playtech has been a little counter-intuitive by setting the best possible RTP at 95.96%. This is fairly low compared to what most studios are releasing nowadays. This might be due to the release date being December 2017, as higher RTP’s have become a recent trend.
This beast is really easy on the eyes and plays extremely well on mobile. You’ll usually get some lag when playing on mobile but here there was very little.
There are 11 regular symbols in total in Epic Ape online slot. This is quite a high amount, especially the lower paying symbols. These are quite boring but serve their purpose as playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. Landing six of a kind for 9 and 10 rewards 100x your bet, J and Q 120x your bet and K and A 150x your bet. The higher paying symbols rise sharply in value and consist of stereotypical animals of the jungle. The chameleon and the frog will give 200x your bet for six of a kind, the black panther and the leopard will pay 250x and the mighty ape will pay 300x your bet.
Playtech have kept the game traditional in terms of how to trigger bonus features. They’ve added a wild symbol that is a diamond and will substitute all regular symbols to create winning paylines. The only symbol that can’t be substituted is the scatter which is marked as the Free Games symbol.
Bonuses and Jackpots
Playtech have taken all their bonus generosity and funnelled it into just 1 bonus feature. You’ll be treated to a giant gorilla sized amount of free spins should you land a certain amount of scatters on the same spin. The requirements for free spins are as follows:
- 3 scatters – 8 free spins
- 4 scatters – 15 free spins
- 5 scatters – 25 free spins
- 6 scatters – 100 free spins
You can expand the amount of free spins that are initially awarded by landing between 2 – 6 scatters on the same spin in the free spins feature. It is also worth noting that the wild will substitute wins by 2x, 3x and 5x depending on how many of them land on the same spin in the free spins.

First things first! 100 free spins? That is a massive amount should you manage to trigger it, plus you can even retrigger it by landing another 6 scatters while the free spins are in progress. The chances of this happening are slim but even so there are other great amounts to be awarded for landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters. This is a game where you won’t be looking to land one big jackpot but rather swing your way into the free spins to start racking up the wins, compiling a sizable kitty. It’s definitely worth playing this slot game and seeing whether the jungle has your best interests at heart.
