Graphics and Theme
As with most primate-themed slots, the graphics and theme will probably remind you of the Planet of the Apes or King Kong movies. The game is set deep within a damp and misty jungle. Thick tree roots and jungle vines cover the floor. It looks like if you stand still for too long, the roots will trap you where you stand. The game controls are located in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen, and the settings button are in the top right. The reels themselves are encased in vines, and to the left of the reels, you can see the Primate King’s lair.
The soundtrack is very quiet but features some gentle percussion instruments and violins to create a relaxing beat. Unlike other slot games, the soundtrack isn’t distracting, so you can focus on hitting spin and winning prizes. Winning combinations create the sound of coins jingling as they are added to your purse, and a huge roar will sound from your speakers when the Primate King wild symbol lands on the reels.

The playing card suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades) represent the low paying symbols in the game. The high paying symbols are made up of various items that the Primate King and his gang have collected from jungle explorers. The most valuable of these symbols is the gold treasure chest which is worth 2.5x, 5x, 15x, or 30x your stake for combinations of three, four, five or six symbols on a winning pay line. Finally, the gorilla is the wild symbol that can land on any reel and substitute for all paying symbols to make a winning combination.
Primate King Wild Upgrade Feature
Some of the symbols have a gold coin attached to them in the bottom right-hand corner. When the gold coin symbols land on the reels, the coins are collected in the meter you see to the right of your screen. Once the meter is filled, you will be awarded with a wild upgrade. There are three wild upgrades in total:
- Wild upgrade 1 – turns the primate wild symbols into a stacked wild that covers all four reels position
- Wild upgrade 2 – adds a random multiplier to the stacked wild
- Wild upgrade 3 – turns the stacked multiplier wild sticky. It will remain in position until it is used in a winning combo
The wild upgrades will reset after the sticky wild symbol has been used in a winning combo.
Once you have collected enough coins to unlock all of the wild upgrades, the progress bar transforms into a sixth reel. It will only include high-value symbols, which increases your chance of making rewarding six of a kind wins.
Primate Smash Feature
This is a randomly triggering feature that can be activated on any non-winning spin where a wild symbol is present. The gorilla will storm onto the screen and smash all of the low paying symbols away, leaving you with a better chance to land a big win when the new symbols arrive.
Primate King How to Play
Primate King is played across a 5×4 set of reels with 30 pay lines. The reels can expand to a 6×4 grid when you have unlocked all of the wild upgrades by collecting the gold coins that are present on some symbols. You can place bets from just £0.10 per spin up to a maximum of £10 per spin. Although the game doesn’t have a bonus round, the sense of progress comes from unlocking the wild multiplier and the sixth reel, creating more chances to win big prizes. Once you have unlocked the sixth reel, you will have the chance to trigger the 3800x your stake jackpot if you get lucky with the stacked wild multipliers.
