Quit monkeying around and get down to some serious spinning business in this new slot machine by Yggdrasil Gaming. With a unique Asian style theme and some stunning visual effects, this game is sure to appeal to a wide range of spinners who are looking for some novelty spins with a captivating aesthetic charm.
What's more, this game is far from being basic on the bonus front, because there are many new and unique ways for spinners to line up a winning spin, with sticky wilds, count-down wilds, a special treasure chest bonus and a random Monkey King feature. And on top of that, there are three different sets of free spins to be chosen.
Sounds a bit overwhelming, right? Well, all will be revealed, young spinning grasshopper!
Monkey King is a unique slot machine which gives spinners the chance to experience Ancient Chinese culture and tradition, with a little extra punch to make sure every spin is filled with epic action. The reels themselves are set within an old Shaolin style temple, position way up high on a mountain top overlooking a beautiful valley below. Meanwhile, the reels themselves play host to a series of delicately detailed ancient artefacts such as vases, scrolls, crowns, shields, and cauldrons. Everything you need to get those Feng Shui ancient warrior vibes!
The game is designed to a very high standard with spectacular animations and breathtaking scenery. Plus, players will be transported far away to those peaceful mountaintops with some authentic Asian style music.
One of the game's most impressive moments of animation is revealed during the randomly triggered Monkey King feature. This will cause the spin-kicking ape himself to appear before the reels and perform some sort of lethal strike to a random reel position, turning it into a new symbol to the player's advantage. That could simply be to add a low value icon to complete a five-in-a-row combination, or it could add a bonus triggering symbol such as a wild or free spin scatter icon.
There are two wild symbols involved in this slot machine, both of which are far from being conventional wild icons which simply substitute for other symbols to complete winning lines. The first of these unique wilds is a sticky wild that appears on reels 2 and 4, and it will remain in position for every consecutive spin as long as it helps to make a winning sequence. The other special wild pops up on reel 3 and it is known as a countdown wild, because it will remain in position for the three following spins.
Players who find three or more scatter icons with the words “Free Spins” will (as you have probably already guessed) be awarded with some free spins. There are three different options to choose from, each of which offers a different number of spins with varying wild symbol features:
If all those wild wins and free spins weren't enough for you, then you will be pleased to hear that you can win some random mystery prizes in Monkey King. All you have to do is wait out the spins until you find a treasure chest symbol on the fifth reel of the game. This will award a random bonus prize worth anywhere between 40 and 1,000 coins.
So, now you know everything there is to know about this slot machine's bonus features, it's about time we discussed the winning potential. And the truth is, there is plenty of ways to win in this all-ways win game.
Essentially, there a no defined paylines at all in Monkey King, meaning that spinners simply have to find matching icons placed on adjacent reels to win a line bet prize. Plus, wins can be found going in both directions from right to left as well as from left to right. The lowest possible wager available per line is 0.01 credits while the biggest stake on offer is 5.00 credits. All line bets are multiplied by 25x, meaning that the maximum possible bet is a fairly sizeable 125.00 credits.
You can see all of the line bet multiplier prizes in the table below:
As you can see from that paytable, the wins in this slot machine aren't exactly going to bag you a huge jackpot. In fact, the biggest possible win in any one spin is capped at a jackpot of 1,250 coins – which is far from the biggest in the business. Nonetheless, there is still plenty of merit to this slot machine because, instead of offering big wins, it serves up small but frequent winning opportunities. Plus, with so many exciting bonus games on offer, you will certainly get plenty of entertainment value from Monkey King.
