New Online Casino Game: Kongo Bongo from Tom Horn
The latest online slot release from Tom Horn Gaming is as playful as it gets. Kongo Bongo is a fun romp through the forest with a monkey who knows where the riches are located.
Tom Horn is known for a variety of adventures in online casino slots, from Sherlock to Blackbeard, from dragons to monsters, and from pandas to monkeys. The company’s mission of making rewarding and exciting games that entertain is on full display with Kongo Bongo.
Some of Australia’s biggest online casinos were quick to put Kongo Bongo in their “new games” section as soon as it was released just a few weeks ago.
Kongo Bongo Basics
The monkey, whose name is Kongo Bongo, is ready to take willing players into the depths of the Banana Jungle. He knows the location of the riches and will help players find them. All the white, sporting a gold chain, purple jacket, and dark sunglasses.
This 3-reel slot harkens back to the classic slot machines, where one payline is all that is necessary.
The RTP (return-to-player) is 96.07%, and though it only boasts of a single payline, the maximum win is 800x the wager, which can equal $80K.
Over a soundtrack of bongo music and the monkey sounds of Kongo Bongo, who is a very active guy even between spins, the game features crisp graphics. The leaves move, small bug fly around, and the jungle is always alive behind the reels.
Payouts for Kongo Bongo
There is a payout table located just above the reels. This makes it very easy to verify wins and see what certain symbols pay. They are summarized as follows and vary only by the amount wagered:
- Gold stars = x500
- Red sevens = x200
- Bongos = x100
- Bananas = x50
- Blue bars = x30
- Green double bars = x20
- Blue triple bars = x10
The betting options are simple. Bets start at $1.00 and increase to $2.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00. Since there is only one payline, there are no alternative coin values.
Kongo Bongo Features and Gameplay
The exciting part of Kongo Bongo’s gameplay is the classic single-line slot with three reels that clink as would a traditional slot machine. The payouts are simple and straightforward. And Kongo Bongo reacts to everything happening in the game. Whether he is wishing the player luck or celebrating a win, he is always active and fun.
The downside to the game is that there are no special features, not even wild symbols or a bonus round to mix things up. Add to that the high volatility, the game is not likely one to keep players’ attention for a long period of time.
That high volatility, however, does mean that payouts can be significant when they happen.
Since the game has no turbo feature, it helps to set the game to autoplay. This is done by holding down the spin button until the auto spins begin. Keep in mind, though, that the autoplay defaults to 100 spins, so players will have to stop it on their own if they don’t want to drain their account.
Further Information about Kongo Bongo and Other Tom Horn Releases

The latest release before Kongo Bongo was Inca’s Treasure. This is an uniquely-structured slot with a bonus game that offers free spins and multipliers. The 5-reel game is a journey to find the Lost Riches, which are guarded by Inti, the Sun God.
The next game schedule for release is Hot’n’Fruity, a 5-reel slot with 20 paylines. Not much is being revealed about the game thus far, except that it will offer a “fiery adventure”. It will also be a medium-volatility game. Traditional fruit symbols will be the keys to winning, but the teaser seems to indicate that there will be at least one fire-based feature available.
