NetEnt Unleashes Planet of the Apes Video Slot

Swedish game development company NetEnt has unleashed its brand new Planet of the Apes video slot title – an officially licensed game that is based on not one, but two blockbuster movies. Those two movies, from 20th Century Fox, are Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was released in 2011, and its sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which was released in 2014. A third movie in the rebooted franchise was released just a few months ago, so the timing of this new slots launch couldn’t be much better.

The Planet of the Apes video slot has a fantastically original format, with two slots games appearing side by side in the same playing field. Both slots – the one on the left is named RISE and the one on the right is named DAWN – have five reels. The playing card ranks 10, J, Q, K and A serve as symbols that are common to both sides, with other symbols showing characters and logos from Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, respectively.

As well as the usual Wild and Scatter symbols – the latter of which can help you to trigger a free spins round – this game also boasts Stacked Wilds, a Rise Bonus and a Dawn Bonus. The two sides of the game interact with each other at several points, giving players plenty of variety and making it possible to land some jaw-dropping wins at the same time. 

With a thundering cinematic soundtrack and plenty of video sequences cut straight from the movies on which it is based, this game is one of the most immersive slot adaptations we have had the pleasure of playing. That rather subjective statement does, of course, reflect our fondness for the movies themselves, but if you like the films as we do, you are sure to enjoy the game.

Planet of the Apes is one of the most popular film franchises ever created and we are confident players around the globe will find our latest title just as immersive and exciting as the films,’ said Simon Hammon, who is Chief Product Officer of NetEnt. ‘The value for an operator with this 50-year series of films is the loyal audience that spans over generations — meaning it has the potential to attract a broad range of players.’

He continued: ‘The quality of this latest edition adds a new dimension to casino gaming and further strengthens our award-winning portfolio. The game studio has worked on the title for months and the industry’s top experts have been involved in its creation. We can’t wait to deliver the ultimate entertainment experience as players discover Planet of the Apes.’

Planet of the Apes can be played at Mr Green Casino and at other venues which offer NetEnt titles.
