We have known developer Red Tiger for some time from their beautiful and atmospheric slots not on gamstop and Primate King is no exception at first glance!
While playing Primate King you immediately get the ominous feeling that the deepest parts of the jungle bring.
So, quickly gather all your courage and take on the Primate King.
Primate King is clearly set in one of the warmer regions of the world. The game takes you to a lush jungle. As you wander through this jungle, you come across quite a lot of disturbing things.
On the left side of the screen is a dark cave entrance in the shape of a giant gorilla head, while on the right a pair of skulls on stakes appear to be staring at you.
The playing field itself also seems almost taken over by the jungle, with all the branches that wind around the playing field. The playing field of Primate King consists of 5 reels with 4 symbols each. It is played on 30 fixed paylines on which you have to make combinations of 3 or more of the same symbols to win.
We are used to Red Tiger slots having a fantastic design, but that cannot always be said about the statistics.
Primate King is certainly not their worst paying game, but it's not the highest either.
The payout percentage is exactly average at 96%. You can bet from 10 cents per spin and up to a maximum of 10 euros per round.
This low maximum bet will be a small disappointment for some of the players. In addition, Primate King has a high variance with a max win of 10,000x your stake.
The features in Primate King mainly revolve around the wild symbols. The wilds can not only replace other symbols as a kind of joker, they are assigned even more special properties in this slot machine.
The Primate Wild Upgrade meter on the right side of the playing field ensures that the wild symbols receive different upgrades. You also have the Primate Smash feature.
To the right of the playing field you see the Wild Upgrade meter. This consists of three layers or levels, each with its own upgrade for the wild symbols.
The multiplier that the wild symbols have with them also continues to increase with each successive winning spin.
The moment you reach level 3, the Wild Upgrade meter changes to a sixth reel for the playing field.
Every time you spin a wild symbol on the playing field, but do not have a winning spin, the Primate Smash feature is activated.
When this happens, a large ferocious gorilla comes into view and smashes all low value symbols.
All empty spaces are then filled by premium symbols that fall in from above the playing field. This guarantees you a winning spin.
As we said, the theme is beautifully brought to life in Primate King. The jungle you end up in is constantly moving, making it feel like danger lurks behind every tree. The soundtrack also helps enormously with its whimsical atmosphere.
In terms of gameplay, Primate King has something very clever about it. The sixth reel that comes with it when you have gone through all levels of the Primate Wild Upgrade meter, remains for as long as you continue to play at the same non gamstop casino and with the same bet.
This is how Red Tiger makes it very attractive for players to keep coming back to this game.
All in all, Primate King is a successful new game from Red Tiger. That is why this slot machine gets 4 out of 5 stars from us.
