Playtech Releases Follow-Up to Epic Ape Online Slot

Date Added:

The new Epic Ape 2 online slot first arrived at some of our reviewed SA online casinos in late July 2021. It was developed by Origins, and it’s brought to you by Playtech, which means that it’s now available to play at and Mansion Casino. If you enjoyed playing the Epic Ape slot that’s been around since 2017, and if you’re looking for something new and exciting to play this weekend, then you’re going to love this game.

It’s fairly similar to the original Epic Ape slot, but the good news is that it’s even more feature-packed. It also comes with FOUR progressive jackpots. South African players can access this new slot in the real money mode and free play demo mode, and the wide betting range lets you take one spin of the reels from as little as R4.00 up to a maximum of R4,000 ($/€/£0.20 up to $/€/£200.00 per spin).

As you spin the reels, the two most important symbols to keep an eye out for are the Diamond Wild Symbols and the Free Spins Scatter Symbols, both of which can land in any position across the reels. The only symbols the Wild Symbols will NOT substitute are the Scatter Symbols, and you need to land 3 or more Scatter Symbols anywhere in view on the same spin to trigger the Free Spins Bonus.

For example, if you’re lucky enough to land 6 Scatter Symbols at the same time, you would be awarded a mouth-watering 100 Free Spins. If 5 Scatter Symbols trigger the feature, then you would receive 20 Free Spins. 4 Scatter Symbols landing gets you 15 Free Spins, and just 3 Scatter Symbols landing would get you a minimum guaranteed bonus of 8 Free Spins. Keep an eye out for the special Golden Gorilla Symbols during the feature because each time one of these symbols lands, it will automatically be stored for you in the meter above that reel.

As soon as you have filled one of the meters to the top, the corresponding symbol on the reels below will be upgraded to the game’s highest valued symbol, which means bigger wins. Don’t forget, there’s also a Progressive Jackpot Bonus, which can randomly trigger on any lucky spin during normal play. Once triggered, you will be transported away from the reels, where you get to take part in a simple picking bonus. The good news is that each time you enter the Jackpot Blitz Bonus feature, you are GUARANTEED one of four jackpots – the Mini, Minor, Major, or Blitz Jackpot.

At the time of writing, the Blitz Jackpot is worth a cool £256,898 (and climbing by the second). When converted into South African Rand at today’s rate of exchange, it works out to approximately R5,006,250.72. These jackpots can climb to no fixed amount before being won, and they can be won by any player, playing with any stake, at any time of the day.
