King Kong Cash UK Slot
There’s a very familiar ape at the heart of this slot from Blueprint Gaming, which would normally mean we’d give it a ‘tv and movies’ genre label, but we feel it also works as a video-game tie-in. The slot has five reels and three rows, twenty fixed winning lines and RTP of 95.80%. There are multiple bonus features to play for, along with random reel modifiers. This exciting slot is best played here at UK Slot Games, where it’s one of over 500 exciting online slot such as Great Rhino, Starburst, Rainbow Riches and Bonanza.

King Kong might be the most famous non-human movie star of all time. He's been the star of dozens of movies and will be returning to the big screen soon in a ‘King Kong vs. Godzilla' film. He's also been used as the theme and inspiration for many online slots. Kong has been depicted a number of ways by different slot game developers. Some of them have gained licenses to use sounds and images from the official films. Others have steered clear of that, but used cinematic presentation so well that it didn't matter. Blueprint has taken a different route again; their visual cues come straight from the legendary ‘Donkey Kong' series of video games. If you played the game on an N64 when you were younger (or still do now), you're in for a treat.
Because the slot ‘apes' the style of the video game so closely, don't expect ultra-realistic graphics. This is a computer game world with computer game visuals. If you have an appreciation for that style, though, you'll be blown away by how much trouble Blueprint have gone to in setting the scene. The presentation is jaunty and cartoonish, set in a lush and leafy kingdom of which Kong is the ruler. He's also got a front row seat for your game, having positioned himself to the left of the reels, wearing his crown in case you forgot he was a King. He looks half-asleep, but don't be fooled. He can wake up at any time and change the destiny of your spins - and we'll talk more about that when we discuss the slot's bonus features.
The layout of the reels and rows is solid and traditional - five reels and three rows, upon which you're looking for one of twenty fixed pay lines. The most valuable symbols are the faces of Kong's animal buddies; there's a parrot, a crocodile, a tiger, and a rhino. Beneath them are the lesser-valued playing symbols J, Q, K, and A.
There are two additional symbols in King Kong Cash; a wild which is represented by a barrel (and will be instantly recognizable to ‘Donkey Kong’ players), and our mighty leader Kong as the slot’s bonus symbol. The bonus is the only symbol which can’t be replaced by the wild when it attempts to create winning lines. Given that the bonus symbol is specifically called a bonus as opposed to a scatter, you might suspect that it has uses during the bonus features - and you’d be correct.
Game Bonus Features
There are a lot of bonus features in this slot, so let’s jump right into them! The first of them is a basic one which we won’t dwell on for too long - it’s a 50/50 Gamble which enables you to bet your most recent win on a game of chance. If you do so, you’ll be presented with two options. Choose the correct one to double your win, but choose the wrong one and you’ll lose the value of the win completely.
Some of the bonuses in the slot would be more accurately called Reel Modifiers, which can occur at any time without any specific trigger. Your first clue that something is happening will be Kong awakening from his near-slumber to take a closer interest in how your game is going. He may choose to take one of four actions to assist you.
If he gives you a Bonus Boost, there will be additional bonus symbols added to the reels for your next spin, in the hope that you’ll be able to trigger one of the bonus features.
If he wakes up to see that you’ve found a pay line, Kong may give you a King Kong Spin Streak to boost the win. He does this by selectively re-spinning one of the reels to add another winning symbol to your pay line.
Kong is keeping a secret under his chair - he has a whole load of extra special ‘golden barrel’ symbols. He might decide to add them to your reels for the Golden Barrel Super Spin, in which all of the gold barrels break open to become matching symbols on your next spin.
Our favorite of the reel modifiers is the Banana Cannon Wilds, which sees Kong produce a full-sized banana cannon gun and fire it at the reels, turning any symbol he hits into a wild. You’ll then get one free spin with all of the wilds frozen in position.
The King Kong Bonus rounds are all triggered from the base game via the same method. A minimum of three of the Kong bonus symbols is required to land anywhere on the reels to get you started. That gives you the chance to spin the slot's wheel of fortune. Doing so will decide which of the bonus games you're about to play.
If you get Golden Kong Free Spins, you’re about to embark on quite a complex feature. At first, you’re looking to pick up as any wild symbols as you possibly can in the given number of spins. When that phase ends, you’ll receive a pre-determined number of free spins, with all the extra wilds you collected added onto the reels. When your spins are over you’ll be presented with a choice of three barrels. Two of the options give you an additional spin, but one of them exits the bonus feature.
Kong will relive one of his most painful memories if you land on Empire Free Spins - he’ll try to climb the Empire State Building, just like he did in the movies! His job is to collect one golden monkey on each floor of the building. So long as he’s able to do that, the free spins keep coming. If he misses one, the round ends.
The King Kong Trail Bonus gives you the chance to play a version of ‘Donkey Kong.' Kong must cross the screen from one side to the other, picking up multipliers as he goes. If he makes it to the other end, he'll win you the 500x stake Big Monkey Bonus. There are bombs in the way though, and if he hits one, the feature is over.
The most simple of the bonuses is Barrel Blast. It’s a straightforward prize-picker round, where you keep choosing barrels until you’ve found three of a kind. Your prize is whatever’s inside those three matching barrels. If you’re very lucky, that might be the Big Monkey Bonus.
The bonus features make this slot a joy to play. King Kong Cash makes no apologies about being a fun, tongue-in-cheek slot. You don’t have to have played the video game to enjoy it!
