Deep in the African Jungle, Behind a giant wall, There lives a huge gorilla, The most monstrous monster of all, His name is commonly called King, And you can tell why in a glance, When everyone starts jumping, He goes into his dance
– “The King Kong Stomp” by The Groovie Ghoulies
Make no mistake here, never once in the gameplay do the developers of Genesis Island ever say the words “King Kong”. For the sake of licensing issues and copyrights, just get that out of your head. King Kong is never, ever, mentioned here!
Doesn’t change the fact there there’s a giant monkey who sure shares a strong resemblance to our skyscraper scaling friend and if you don’t see it, you must work for Genesis, the company that put out this amazing slot with its 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 paylines of giant monkey fun!
Along the way you’ll also find some T-Rex dinosaurs and some giant lizards who are in no way affiliated with Godzilla!
With all of the jokes aside, let’s take a look at what else this new slot from Bovada and other great sites has to offer you!
Once you arrive at Genesis Island you’ll be greeted with some luscious landscapes as you’re dropped off deep in the jungle. The graphics here are extremely well done and quite pleasant to look at while you spin away looking to get the monkey to come off of some of his winnings!
This plays on a 5×3 board with 20 fixed pay lines, meaning that you cannot change them. The winning lines will be paid out with winning combinations going from left to right. As you find your way through the hot jungle, these are the symbols that will be coming your way. No matter how much you are betting per spin, they’ll always payout like this, meaning that you will win your bet times X.
|Symbol||Match 3||Match 4||Match 5|
|Giant Crab (?)||0.5||1||3.75|
And that’s not all!
You will also get prizes for matching just 2 of the Giant Ape or the Volcano as well!
- The Volcano Wild
We mentioned the volcano symbol right up there and the fact that you will win some money just for matching 3 of those, but that’s not all it does. The volcano also doubles as the “Wild” symbol in Genesis Island.
This normal Wild Symbol can stand in for every symbol with the exception of Scatter Symbols.
- The Mega Reel
When you’re hanging out at the island, every once in a while you will be able to combine reels to create a 2 or even a 3 reel MEGA reel.
All of the high paying and wilds become 2×2 and 3×3 MEGA symbols, respective to MEGA reel size!
This can happen at any time during the regular game. While playing the Bonus Game they will appear in every free spin!
- Primal Wilds
These get awarded randomly in both the base game as well as bonus spins. It’s also possible to hit Primal Wilds and Mega Reels in the same spin really helping to rack up your winnings!
- Evolution Mega Spins
Landing a FULL 3×3 scatter in a 3 reel Mega Reel will trigger you some FREE SPINS.
You will first be awarded 10 Free Spins and every free spin awards a new Mega Reel. A full 3×3 scatter will retrigger 10 more Free Spins.

Pros & Cons
Normally we don’t want to send anyone off to a slot when we just don’t know the RTP of said slot, however, we’re going to do it and make an exception here!
We have no idea what the RTP is and that stinks, but man, with the expanding wilds and the primal wilds and all of the other wilds all over the place, Genesis Island was a lot of fun during our testing. We do recommend this one here!
As always, just make sure that you’re playing at a trusted, legitimate casino when doing your gambling!
