Swedish online casino games developer, NetEnt, in association with American film studio 20th Century Fox, has uploaded its latest video slot, Planet of the Apes.

While NetEnt isn’t due to roll out the Planet of the Apes video slot until October 23rd, this is certainly a nice teaser!

The five-reel, three-row, 20-payline slot game is based on two 20th Century Fox-distributed movies, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which play simultaneously on dual reels. The game’s mechanism lends itself to the multiplayer split-screen games played on old gaming consoles in days gone by.

The game allows players to journey through two completely different phases of Caesar’s life. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Caesar is the leader of an ape armada in the Muir Woods near San Francisco.

In addition to the Rise and Dawn play areas, the features of the video slot game include the Rise and Dawn Free Spins, Scatter symbols, Bonus symbols, a Dual feature, Wild substitutions, a stacked Wild feature and the Rise and Dawn Bonus features.

NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes video slot can be played on desktop, tablet, iPhone and Android device and employs flawless optimization. Players can choose to play-for-free or opt to control the number of coins per spin in keeping with their own particular gambling style. The two games in one mechanism means that each set of reels awards its prizes independently. The result of the two sets combining can produce some big payouts.

We’re bananas for this thematically-inspired two-in-one video slot and believe it will not only appeal to fans of the science fiction media franchise, but to those who are not familiar with the series that began with French author Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel La Planète des Singes, as well.

NetEnt sealed the licensing agreement with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products for the Planet of the Apes film franchise for online casino gaming in February this year. The partnership between the two covers the entire Planet of the Apes brand, which spans more than 50 years.
