Epic ape is set in the backdrop of a jungle with symbols on the reels include regular card deck symbols as well as chameleons, frogs, panthers and jaguars. The most rewarding symbol is the ape itself of course which gives you 300 coins for a 6 of a kind combination across a pay line. The ape also appears stacked on all reels which creating more ways to win, for the mega wins.
The diamond is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols but the free games scatter symbol. It also only appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. The wild becomes especially important during the free hames feature which is triggered when you get 3 or more Free Games scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
The amount of free spins you get depends on how many scatters you get to trigger the feature. So, 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will award 8, 15, 25 or 100 free spins respectively. The diamond wild during the free spins feature will apply a random multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x when substituting in a win. When you land 2 or more scatters during a free spin will give you more free spins as 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will reward you with an extra 5, 8, 15, 25 or 100 free spins. There is no limit on the free spin re-trigger.
I simply love this game and always start it to build a balance as the free games can give huge wins, however it can also take forever to trigger.
