Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Hits Cinemas

Monkeys are king this weekend as the long-awaited Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits cinemas.

Sci-fi movie fans are delighted this weekend as the long-awaited Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits cinemas across the world. A sequel to the successful "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" reboot from 2011, the new film is the eighth in the franchise. Directed by Mat Reeves, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Keri Russel and Gary Oldman among others.

Positive Reviews

So far, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has met critical acclaim from reviewers. Film review site Rotten Tomatoes praised the film for its "Intelligence and emotional resonance to match its stunning special effects". The Hollywood Reporter has gone gone really far, its critic claiming that the film to its predecessor is what "The Empire Strikes Back" was to Star Wars.

Monkey-themed Video Slots  

Perhaps it's something evolutionary that makes monkeys so popular in human culture. Whatever the reason may be, there are quite a few online slots which have put monkeys in the center of their themes. We've looked around at bet365 Casino and rounded up three popular ones:

Kong: The 8th Wonder of the World – From Playtech comes this 5-reel, 20-payline video slot based on the world's most famous gorilla: King Kong. This game accompanied the release of the 2005 film King Kong, and it features a unique transition between "jungle mode" and "big city mode" which completely changes the setting and delivers players with two bonus screens, including one where they fight off planes on top of the Empire State Building.

Funky Monkey – It's hard to argue otherwise – monkeys are funky animals. Playtech's Funky Monkey brings the funk with coolest monkey you'll ever meet in a classic 3-reel, 1-payline slot. There are no special bonuses here, just a straightforward slot experience with a top payout of 2,500 coins won when three sets of bongos are landed.  

Jungle Boogie – Another classic from Playtech named after a Kool and The Gang tune, Jungle Boogie is a colorful 3-reel, 1-payline slot with wildlife like fish, parrots, chimps and of course monkeys to deliver a true jungle experience. Landing three tiger symbols triggers the slot's top payout of 4,000 coins.  

Unfortunately no Planet of the Apes video slot has been released yet, but with the promising reviews and hype which the new film brings with it, it's not unlikely to assume that we'll be seeing one sooner rather than later.
