King Kong Casino (Best New Slot of 2008)
Last year, Cryptologic were close to winning this award for the new Hulk game, but were ultimately pipped by Hitman from Microgaming. This year, the roles are reversed with Microgaming’s Tombraider II game being pipped by the excellent King Kong slot. Why? Well two reasons: firstly it’s different to any other slot out there, with expanding wild symbols and a unique random extra wild feature. But the killer punch is provided by the free spins bonus round. Not only does King Kong award up to 150 free spins in the bonus round, it retriggers the same amount if the scatters re-appear! While playing this, on more than one occasion I’ve had over 500 free spins in one hit and some wins of over 300x! I love it…so it’s “Best Slot 2008″ in my book. Slot Type: 5 Reel, 30 Paylines. Free Spins: 15 – 150.
