Even those who have (somehow) never seen one of the many King Kong movies will be familiar with the tale of the legendary giant ape from Skull Island. He was stolen from his homeland to become a tourist attraction in New York, and ended up climbing a skyscraper and fighting with planes, becoming a bonafide cinema icon in the process. He lends his name to the title of this Blueprint Gaming release, becoming one of many online slot games to make use of the character, but it isn’t the movies which are the true inspiration for King Kong Cash. It’s the famous old Nintendo N64 game ‘Donkey Kong.’ We imagine that for a lot of our members over the age of 30, their level of interest in this online slot just shot up!

‘Donkey Kong' was released in the mid-90s, and while it was a sensation in its era, presenting modern online slot games using 90s video game graphics wouldn't achieve the desired effect. King Kong Cash, therefore, has a slicker style of presentation than the game it's based on, with transparent reels that allow us a peek at the life and environment of the king of the apes. Kong himself seems like a very chilled out chap, sat in his chair over to the left of the reels. He's also inclined to be helpful if the mood takes him, as you'll find out when we take a look at this slot's bonus features.
As has become a calling card for online slots made by Blueprint Gaming, King Kong Cash is all about the bonuses and extra features. The base game is a little basic. It happens on a 5x3 layout, and contains only twenty fixed paylines. That makes it bang average at face value, but with so much more the slot we wouldn't dream of insulting our ape host (or Blueprint) by calling this slot ‘average.' Before we take a look at those bonuses, though, we'll run through what to look out for on the reels. Aside from the low-value J to A playing cards, the rest of the symbols are characters who Kong shares his jungle kingdom with; a rhino, a tiger, a crocodile, and a parrot.
On top of those symbols, there are wild and scatter symbols, and as per the norm for online slot games, the wild can substitute for every symbol apart from the scatter to make winning combinations. In a nice nod towards the ‘Donkey Kong' game, the wild is a barrel. The bonus is Kong himself, with ‘bonus' written across him just to ensure you understand what the symbol's for.

King Kong Cash Slot Bonus Features
King Kong Cash technically has three bonuses, although one of them is a basic Gamble Feature which allows you to place your most recent winnings on a 50/50 game of choice. Win the game, and you get double your money, lose, and you get nothing. The other two are worth talking about in more detail, and break up into a series of sub-bonuses.
Bonus number one is Sleepy Kong, and is a randomly-occurring Reel Modifier. On any spin, the half-awake Kong may open his eyes for long enough to help out with your game by performing one of the following four actions:-
Kong’s Bonus Boost adds more bonus symbols to the reels, and therefore makes it more likely you’ll trigger the other bonus feature next time you spin.
His King Kong Spin Streak might happen after any win you make - big or small! Kong will have a good look at the symbols which made your win, and if it’s possible for him to improve it by leaving those symbols in place and spinning again, he’ll do it.
The Golden Barrel Super Spin has a clue in the name, and involves golden barrel symbols which don’t appear in the base game. When the reels stop spinning, they’ll crack open to reveal a set of matching symbols, hopefully creating a winning combination for you.
The fourth reel modifier (and our absolute favorite) is Banana Cannon Wilds, in which Kong shoots at the reels using his banana cannon. Any symbol hit by a banana becomes wild, and all the wilds will stick in place for one spin.
That does it for reel modifiers, so let’s move on to the King Kong Bonus rounds, all of which are triggered by landing at least three of the Kong bonus symbols on any one spin. There are four possible bonus games to play, and so you’ll spin a wheel of fortune to decide which one you’ll receive before you start.
King Kong Cash Slot Game Free Spins
Golden Kong Free Spins is a two-stage bonus game; first of all, you have to collect as many wild symbols as you can. However many you end up with will be added to the reels for the second stage, where you get a free spin with the wilds in place. After every spin, wins will be counted, and you'll be presented with a choice of three barrels. Two of them let you spin again, and one of them exits out of the feature. That means there's always a 66% chance of another free spin.
The Empire Free Spins feature is the only part of this slot that has anything to do with the famous movies, and involves Kong repeating his party trick of mounting an assault on the Empire State Building. On each level he passes, you have to help Kong capture a golden monkey symbol. Succeed, and you get another free spin. Fail, and the feature ends. The further up the building you get, the more valuable your spins become.
Donkey Kong fans will love the King Kong Trail Bonus, turning the slot into a side-scrolling platform game in which Kong has to get across the platforms to the other side, picking up multipliers as he goes. The Big Monkey Bonus of 500x your line bet is waiting for him if he gets there, but if he comes into contact with a bomb it’s game over!
The last bonus is Barrel Blast, and it's a prize-pick. You're offered a series of barrels to pick from, and you break them open to find out what's inside. When you've found three matching prizes, they'll be awarded to you as a multiple of your stake. The top prize is three golden monkeys, which equate to the Big Monkey Bonus we mentioned above.
This is one of the most cheerful and entertaining online slot games in Blueprint’s entire library, and when you consider some of the great online slots they’ve produced, that’s high praise!
