Kong

5-Reel, 20-Line SlotWild Jungle Re-Spins Feature

Kong: the Eighth Wonder of the World

The basic objective when playing Kong: the Eighth Wonder of the World slot is to spin the reels and match symbols on the paylines. This online casino slot has two modes, Jungle Mode and Big City Mode, which are explained in greater detail in a section below. Kong slot also has various bonus features that can help boost your winnings.

How to Play:

  • Start by choosing Line Bet. Do this by using the +/- buttons underneath the Line Bet Box.
  • Next you must choose the number of paylines you wish to bet on. Do this by using the +/- buttons underneath the Lines Box. You can bet on up to 20 paylines per spin. You can also select paylines by clicking on the numbers on the sides of the reels. Please note that choosing a number will also activate all paylines numerically below it. For example, clicking on 18 will activate paylines 1-17 as well.
  • The Total Bet for each spin is calculated as Line Bet x Number of Paylines.
  • When you have selected your Line Bet and paylines, click on the spin button to spin the reels and start the Kong slot. You can also spin the reels using the Bet Max button; this spins the reels at the maximum number of paylines (20) for your chosen Line Bet.
  • The game can also be played using Auto Play Mode. This allows you to set a predetermined number of spins to be played through consecutively. Click on the Auto Play button and choose from 10, 20, 30 or 50 Auto Spins. These will play through automatically, only pausing if you are awarded a Bonus Feature, or if you click on the Stop button.
  • When the reels have come to rest after a spin, any winning combinations will be clearly highlighted on the reels and the amount won shown in the Win Field.
  • All winning combinations (for the main game) are displayed on the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Info button on the bottom left of the screen. To calculate the value of a Line Win, multiply the figure shown on the Paytable by the Line Bet. To calculate the value of a Scatter Win, multiply the figure shown on the Paytable by the Total Bet.

Info Pages:

Clicking on the Info button will open the Kong slot Info Pages, which includes the Paytable and Bonus information. You can move through the different pages by using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. To return to the reels, click on the Back button. The Info Pages are as follows:

Paytable – displays all winning combinations and their respective values. The Paytable screen will change depending on which mode you are playing in. The values of the payouts will not change.

Jungle Mode/City Mode – explains the difference in the two modes. Also describes how each mode is activated (more on this below).

Wild Jungle Respins – explains the rules and awarding of this Wild Jungle Respins Feature.

Skull Island Bonus – explains the rules and awarding of the Skull Island Bonus.

Wild Kong Respins – explains the rules and awarding of the Wild Kong Respins Feature.

City Tower Bonus – explains the rules and awarding of the City Tower Bonus.

Please note: on the bottom of the Paytable screen there is a button marked ‘Show Paylines’; select this to load a graphic showing how all the paylines appear on the reels.

Paylines:

Paylines are the pathways in Kong that matching symbols must follow (from left to right) across the reels to achieve Line Wins. Only the paylines that are active (the ones that you place a bet on) can record a Line Win.

Please note that there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The former is the individual bet placed on each payline. The Latter is the accumulative amount bet on all active paylines.

About Payouts:

All possible payouts for the main game are displayed on the Paytable screen. These are the same regardless if you are playing in Jungle Mode or Big City Mode. Only the highest winning combination is paid on each individual payline. Multiple wins can occur on different paylines; these are added together and paid (along with any Scatter Wins) as a total win.

All Line Wins must begin on Reel 1, and work left to right across the reels in an unbroken chain of at least three symbols on a payline.

Jungle Mode/Big City Mode:

There are two different modes in Kong: the Eighth Wonder of the World slot – Jungle Mode and Big City Mode. There are no differences between the payouts in the main game for either mode. However, you can be awarded unique Bonus Features depending on which mode you are playing in.

When in Jungle Mode you can be awarded the Skull Island Bonus and Wild Jungle Respins Feature.

When in Big City Mode you can be awarded the City Tower Bonus and Wild Kong Respins Feature.

The game will initially start in Jungle Mode and remain in that mode until the Skull Island Bonus has been awarded and completed. The game will then change to Big City Mode. It will revert back to Jungle Mode when the City Tower Bonus has been awarded and completed.

The software will record which mode the game was left in each time you load the game.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol – represented by Kong in both modes – can substitute for all other symbols (except Scatter Symbol) to help form Line Wins.

A group of Wild Symbols can also form their own unique Line Win, which has a separate payout as shown on the Paytable.

If you land three Wild Symbols anywhere on the reels after a spin you will be awarded the Wild Jungle Respins Feature or Wild Kong Respins Feature (depending on the mode you are playing in).

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
