The Super Round is triggered during a regular free spin round. For this round to be triggered, you must get a minimum of 3 golden gorilla scatter symbols during a regular free spin round. When you get this, you are awarded more free spins. How many free spins you are awarded in this round depends on how many scatter symbols you get: 3 scatter symbols fetch you 15 free spins, 4 scatter symbols fetch you 25 free spins, and 5 scatter symbols fetch you 50 free spins. The wild multiplier during this round becomes 2x. Once the Super Bonus round is complete, you go back to completing the remaining free spins in your free spins bonus.
The Hidden Statue Bonus round is triggered within a Super Bonus round. For this bonus round to be triggered, you must get a minimum of three orange dragon symbols on the reels. During this bonus round, golden gorilla statues appear across the reels for you to choose and smash up. Each statue you smash up gives you a cash prize. You can smash as many statues as you want, until the monkey symbol appears. Once you have completed this round, you are taken back to the Super Bonus round where you complete the remaining free spins. Once those are complete, you are taken back to the original free spins round to complete the remaining free spins, after which you are taken back to the base game.
A minimum of three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels triggers the free spins round. How many free spins you are awarded is based on the number of scatter symbols that appeared on your reels. If you got 3 scatter symbols, you get 15 free spins. If you got 4 scatter symbols, you get 25 free spins. If you got 5 scatter symbols, you get 50 free spins. Once your free spins are completed you are taken back to the original game.
Top and Secondary Prizes
The top prize in this game is the 50,000-coin jackpot. This is a non-progressive jackpot, but is still very impressive. You can get this jackpot by landing 5 wild symbols on a single active payline when you are playing a 10-coin per spin round. If you are playing a minimum bet of 1 coin, you will still get 5,000 coins if you hit this jackpot.
The secondary prize is of course the Hidden Statues Bonus round. This round can also be very enriching, because each golden gorilla statue you smash up during this round (as mentioned earlier) will give you cash prizes.
