  • Some may not like infrequent payouts, but others may relish unlimited free spins potential

The Epic Ape slot by Playtech has an unlimited free spin potential.

That’s just for starters – if players trigger the free games round, they can start with up to 100 free spins – and that’s before triggering extra free spins within the game itself.

This game looks good on the face of it, so is this really going to be king of the slot jungle.

Getting into the detail

This is a six reel slot, offering 4,096 ways-to-win. The slot has a deep Amazonian jungle feel, with chameleons, frogs and jaguars appearing on the reels, as well as the usual playing card symbols.

The Epic Ape character is stacked on all reels and can give 300 coins if six out of six appear on the reels.

The wild symbol is a diamond, as as well as substituting for symbols, it randomly multiplies wins by either 2x, 3x or 5x during the free spins round.

The scatter is the ‘free games’ symbol and three of them generates the free spins round; get six on the reels and that’s when the 100 free spins is unlocked.

The scatters are active in the free spins round, so if the player triggers two or more – a gradually increasing amount of free spins is awarded, and, amazingly, another 100 free spins if six scatters land.

The free spins round has the potential to go to infinity (but not beyond).

Other points of note and where to play

This game has an RTP a shade below 96%, and it looks to be a pretty volatile slot, meaning payouts don’t come that frequently in the base game.

This is the only gameboard in the Epic Ape slot - the free spins round is exactly the same.

Really, you play this slot to trigger those exciting free spins, with the potential for not only unlimited amounts, but also the chance for a 5x multiplier.

The base game, itself is rather flat, and apart from those stacked ape symbols, offers not much in the way of features or pays.

And as this is a pretty volatile slot, triggering that free spins round might take longer than players will have the patience, or bankroll, for.

It really depends on the player. A little bit of playtesting at Casinopedia HQ found that triggering that free spins round isn’t easy – but that of course is an unscientific bit of anecdotal evidence.
