WMS bring one of their big land-based machines to casinos online, but does the Gorilla Chief 2 mobile slot hold up to modern gambling games?
So what’s different about Gorilla Chief and Gorilla Chief 2?
Both have 50 paylines, both have stacked wilds, hot re-spins and free spins. About the only real difference we can find are:
That last one is worth having a look at this Gorilla Chief 2 slot game, if only because it simply gives you more chances at catching wins.
This was a great feature when it came out in the brick and mortar WMS slot machines.
If you get the same symbol covering the whole of reel 1, any similar symbols and wild symbols are then held for a further 2 re-spins.
In short, it’s like a limited time sticky win feature. Except, games like Dark Jungle by Cayetano and Jack Hammer 2 slot, you get them for an infinite amount of spins for as long as you keep getting that symbol.
So that’s not to say the feature isn’t fun in this Gorilla Chief 2 slot, because it does break up the base game nicely. But you can’t help but feel like there are better casino games, prettier games, giving you more for your sticky win money.
Mostly that’s thanks to the fact that the minimum bet is 0.40 a spin for a 50 payline slot game.
The stacked wilds and stacked symbol helps keep things interesting, but if you don’t catch the free spins bonus round in the first 50 spins or so, it can feel a little tedious.
And the problem is, the bonus games are hard to catch. Once you start playing, these tend to be very exciting, just because you get so many more wilds and scatters on screen.
So it’s not that we don’t recommend this Gorilla Chief 2 game. In our opinion, it is better than the original. It’s just not a stand out like the Zeus God of Thunder game, for example.

Stacked Wilds: The silverback gorilla face is the wild symbol and will replace any other symbol to create a win. It only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. It will not replace the bonus symbol.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3 scatter bonus symbols trigger 10 free spins. During the bonus game, you get richer reels with more wilds and a greater chance of triggering the Hot Hot Super Respins. Bonus symbol only appears on reels 1, 2 and 3.
Hot Hot Super Respin Feature: Whenever the same symbol appears in all positions on reel one, this feature is activated.
The symbols on reel 1 will be held, as will any other of the same symbols sticking anywhere else on the reels. You'll get 2 re-spins to catch as many of those symbols as possible.
Gorilla Chief 2 slot on mobile doesn't improve much on the original machine, instead just modernizing the graphics and animation.
It is a little more volatile, but (honestly) the differences are so minimal as to what you wonder what the point was to creating a sequel.
Still, you'll find Gorilla Chief 2 at more online casinos than the first, namely because it's a more recent game.
The free spins are good fun thanks to stacks and stacks of wild symbols and the super hot respin keeps things interesting in the base game.
Gorilla Chief 2 is a 50 payline slot game with 5 reels, 4 rows and stacked wilds, bonus symbols and free spins. You also get a re-spin when you get a stack of the same symbols on reel 1.
