While it wasn’t exactly a Best PIcture nominee, 2005’s Kong received Academy Award nominations for its stunning sound and visuals. These same effects are highlights in Playtech’s Kong: The 8th Wonder of the World pokie as well, a five-reel, 20-payline video slot that received solid scores in all categories from pokies.au reviewers.
But Kong is a little more than stunning effects, and beyond the peripherals is a slot that feels like two different games in one and that has enough bonuses to keep us playing until every plane is swatted out of the Manhattan sky.
While we didn’t exactly go ape**** during our review of Kong: The Eighth Wonder of the World, it’s still an all-around solid pokie that will make fans of the franchise happy.

Kong: The Eighth Wonder Of The World Key Features
Among quite a few, the favourite features of the group we had doing our review of Kong The 8th Wonder of the World were:
- Two unique worlds that offer their own unique bonuses
- Wilds during free spins are sticky for the duration of the bonus games
- Top base game payout of 3000 coins
- HD graphics and introduction video
- Low bet minimums and high bet maximums that will appeal to all players
Eye-catching, award-worthy visuals, profitable extra features, and flawless mobile gameplay fully succeed in enticing new and experienced players alike.
Kong’s betting options should appease all players. It’s up to you on how many of the game’s 20 paylines you bet on, and the least you can wager is .01 while the max is a whopping 2,000. The reel’s basic symbols are characters from the film as well as 10, J, Q, K, and A icons. The Wild symbol features Kong and is the highest paying block in the game, at 3000 coins for appearing five times in a single spin.
Kong has a few different bonus features here, some of which are only activated when you are in the game’s island level and some only when you are in the city stage. Three or more Kong head scatter symbols triggers the jungle island mode, and three or more Kong logo scatters triggers the big city mode. We detail the unique features of both of these modes below in our Kong: The 8th Wonder of the World online pokies review.
Jackpot & Bonus Games
In the jungle, you’ll trigger wild jungle respins whenever you land three Kong wilds anywhere on the reels. During these, wilds are frozen and as a result can aid you in completing some big real money payouts. Three King Kong logos in Jungle Mode will land you in the Skull Island bonus, where you will select various locations on a map of Skull Island in hopes of matching three creatures or revealing just one King Kong and his corresponding 30x multiplier. Once this bonus is over you will advance on to the big city.
There, you can win the Wild Kong respins bonus which awards with you three free spins. During each of these, all symbols turn wild on different designated reels (including reels 1, 3, and 5 on the final free spin). To return to the island, you’ll need to land three Kong logos and play the City Tower bonus. Kong will face three sets of three planes, and it’s up to you to help him decide which of the three to swat at, as each reveals its own real cash prize.

We appreciate any pokie with gorgeous graphics that remain beautiful when we load them on our smartphones (and doesn’t require us to buy an app first). Our Kong: Eighth Wonder of the World online pokies review team was also impressed with:

- Bonus features are especially fun when you are playing on the go
- Buttons and menus are easy to use with the press of your finger
- Two different game levels especially makes it feel like two different games on mobile
- No apps to download means you can save space for other things on your device
Why Kong Is Worth Playing
Rare is it that we enjoy playing a movie-based pokie more than we did watching the film itself, but that is definitely the case here with Kong Eighth of the World. While neither are blockbusters, we are still confident that big fans of the oversized ape in any medium will enjoy playing this Playtech pokie.
- Two separate worlds with their own bonuses makes it feel like two games in one
- Sticky wilds during Wild Jungle free spin bonus
- All-wild reels during Wild Kong free spin bonus
- City tower bonus has you swatting planes for big real money
- Cinematic feel that might be better than the movie was
- No apps required in order to play on mobil
