Gorilla Mayhem Slot Demo Gameplay

Gorilla Mayhem Slot Review 2022

Pragmatic Play has got us front-row seats to see the King of the jungle in full swing in their latest release, Gorilla Mayhem!

Come and see the mighty gorilla in its natural habitat at a safe distance of course, but get too close and this primate will turn to rage pretty quick. Join us as we attempt to tame this 300lb beast in another exciting Jungle inspired slot, but will we be successful?

Pragmatic Play are always one step ahead with their releases than other Providers, but is this a good or bad thing? Everyone has thier own opinions and tastes so we will leave that for you to decide, but for the most part, nearly all Pragmatic Play titles are pretty good and Gorilla Mayhem falls into that catergory.

Gorilla Mayhem shares a theme with titles Gorilla Kingdom, Congo Cash and Gorilla Gold Megaways, but will Gorilla Mayhem become King of the jungle? The background shows an overgrown Jungle with nothing but trees and vines which is probably a lot tidier than most of our gardens at the moment.

Will Gorilla Mayhem become the new King of the jungle? Let’s play on and find out!

Gorilla Mayhem Base Game

Gorilla Mayhem Base Game and Features

Gorilla Mayhem is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to connect 3 or more (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbol) from left to right, starting from the left-most reel. The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two.

In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Gorilla Mayhem is the Gorilla, followed by the Leopard, Crocodile, Hippo, Parrot and Snake. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten. There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all symbols except Scatters. Wild symbols will only present themselves on reels 2, 3 and 4.

Not really a feature as such but Gorilla Mayhem shakes things up a bit with an exciting Golden Gorilla symbol, which can deliver some pretty decent big wins if you land enough of them. More on this below!

Gorilla Mayhem Free Spins

Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters in any position on the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 15 and 20 Free Spins respectively. During the Free Spins round, a Progressive feature is in play.

All regular Gorilla and Golden Gorilla symbols that land will be collected and stored in the Progression Meter on the right side of the reel set. For every 40 Gorilla symbols that are collected, the current Level is increased as follows.

  • Level 1 – In level 1, Golden Gorilla symbols can award a random Multiplier of x1, x2 or x3.
  • Level 2 – In level 2, Golden Gorilla symbols can only award a Multiplier of x2 or x3. By reaching this level, you will be awarded an additional +3 Free Spins.
  • Level 3 – In level 3, Golden Gorilla symbols can only award a Multiplier of x3. By reaching this level, you will be awarded an additional +3 Free Spins.

Once Level 3 is reached, all remaining Free Spins and retriggers will be played out at this level. Landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 Scatters across the reels awards an additional +5, +10, +15 and +20 Free Spins respectively.

For those outside the UK, you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option. The Bonus Buy option can award either 3, 4 or 5 Scatters during the intial trigger.

The Free Spins round can be pruchased for a generous 80x your current bet. The RTP when purchasing Free Spins remains the same at 96.50%.

Gorilla Mayhem: Our Verdict

There’s no shame in getting inspiration from somewhere else and no doubt we’ve all followed in another’s footsteps in one way or another so there’s no reason why providers can’t do the same.

The reason we say this is because Gorilla Mayhem does share a fair few similarities to NetEnt’s Gorilla Kingdom including theme, Primate and even the blue crystal Scatter. Of course this is just speculation and we have no definitive proof, but it can’t just be coincidence…can it?

Gorilla Mayhem may share similarities to Gorilla Kingdom but it definitely has its own unique qualities thanks to the Golden Gorilla symbols that appear in both the base game and Free Spins round. It’s hard to say if the base game or Free Spins round has the most potential but there is definitely enough of it in both areas.

In terms of statistics, Gorilla Mayhem has an above average RTP of 96.50% and a pretty standard 5,000x maximum win capacity on offer which is pretty typical for a Pragmatic Play title.

In summary, Gorilla Mayhem may look familiar and not overly original, but there’s a lot to enjoy here due to its dependable gameplay and big potential.
