Coming Soon – Planet of the Apes Slot!


Earlier this year, NetEnt released the spectacular news of their exclusive branded Planet of the Apes slot! NetEnt are keeping the details very close to their chest but we have an exclusive pre-release review and preview of the game right here, just for you!

NetEnt have signed an agreement with 21 Century Fox for the full Planet of the Apes franchise. This not inly consists of the original 1968 version Planet of the Apes which just so happens to be the name of the highly anticipated game releasing this month but also the 2011 release Rise of the Planet of the Apes,  the 2014 film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and this years War of the Planet of the Apes.

The game releases on 23rd October just after the blockbuster release so movie fans can fully immerse themselves in Planet Ape mode! The slot features a very unique dual screen play based on the films Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. We have a detailed review of the game below but before we go into that, do we really think this is going to be as good as anticipated? Is it going to live up to it’s expectations?

Well, it’s certainly not the first time NetEnt has taken on movie branded slots. Some of the most popular slots in the gaming world are movie branded and there have been some extremely successful ones by different software providers. NetEnt itself prides itself on the success of many (Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Scarface). Microgaming and Playtech have also produced some highly popular movie branded slots including Tomb Raider, Hitman, Jurassic Park, Game of Thrones, Iron Man and Incredible Hulk. So, when it comes to branded slots Netent certainly know what they are doing and the high expectations players have for these popular movie slots. Furthermore, signing exclusive rights this franchise is a huge investment for NetEnt, so we are confident that NetEnt have really put the work in to make this game more popular than ever. They really would have to to make it worth the investment which they certainly have with not only some familiar features that you would have seen before but combining these with one very original dual screen feature that hasn’t been seen before, more on that in the review later! This is great for us as we are sure to get a slot (or two in this case) that is highly entertaining and great playability!

We have an exclusive review and preview to the game below.



Planet of the Apes slot by NetEnt is releasing on 23rd October 2017. NetEnt has kept information about this game under lock and key to heighten anticipation but we have an exclusive and detailed review here to wet your appetite! The first noticeable feature of the game is the incredible graphics, images, video footage, soundtrack and animation used from the films. NetEnt have very cleverly utilised the license to it’s full potential using material from both Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes films. The slots are very well designed and rate exhilaratingly high on the entertainment level. You will also notice the never seen before dual game play. On the left features Rise game play and on the right features Dawn game play. Both sides can be played together and separately. Although each screen has 20 lines you only need a minimum stake of 20p to play all 40 lines in total. Payouts are regular meaning as well as good playability and excellent visual spectacle you also receive good rewards and bonus free spins. Although a detailed game as you are effectively playing two slots with 20 lines each that play together and separately the features including the Rise Bonus, Dawn Bonus, Rise Free Spins, Dawn Free Spins and Stacked Wild Feature, it isn’t a complicated game. There are many aspects that have been borrowed from other slots to give you some familiarity but certainly brings enough of it’s own original features to give us an incredibly thrilling experience!
