Monkey King Slot
- Several features are fun and can offer good rewards
- Wide range of Wild symbols with different properties
- Ability to choose your own Free Spins Bonus
Monkey King slot from Yggdrasil offers a bunch of features mainly focused on Wilds and Free Spins, and also includes an interesting way to make a winning combination. This works by landing identical symbols on 3 or more consecutive reels from left to right, and multiplier symbols on a reel will multiply the win. It’s a bit more unusual than we usually see but I quite like it. The rest of the game is certainly easy enough to play; all you have to do is spin the reels to try and get such a winning combination. You do this using the base symbols which I’ve listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Diamonds and Clubs (lowest value)
- Hearts and Spades
- Green Crown
- Cup (highest value)
In addition to the base symbols mentioned above, there are also Wild symbols in Monkey King slot that have some interesting properties, aside from the fact that they substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Free Spins symbol. These are:
- Sticky Wilds. Sticky Wilds do exactly you probably think. If the Wild symbol forms part of a win, it will remain in place until the next spin. If you keep winning with it, it will continue to stay in that position until you finally stop. It’s worth noting that they only appear on reels 2 and 4.
- Count Down Wilds. These work in a similar way to the Sticky Wilds but you don’t actually need to get a win with this symbol for it to stay in place. Instead, it will remain in its position for 3 more spins regardless of how many wins it forms.
Monkey King Slot Bonuses and Features
Golden Monkey Feature. This is a very basic but surprisingly useful feature in the game. At any point, a monkey can appear and change one of the symbols on the screen into another symbol so that it helps you get a win. Like I say, simple but effective.
Treasure Chest. The Treasure Chest symbol is an interesting one that can be used for several things. For a start, it can just offer you a simple cash reward. Alternatively, it can be used to trigger the Free Spins Bonus. Unlike many other slots, only 1 of these symbols is required for the feature to trigger and it appears only on reel 5. If it appears during the Free Spins Bonus, it will grant you another 2 free spins.
Free Spins Bonus. Even though you can trigger the Bonus using the Treasure Chest, you can also trigger it the more traditional way using the Free Spins symbol. If you manage to land 3 of them at any one point. If you manage to land 4 you’ll also be awarded a cash prize, and landing 5 will give you an even greater cash prize. You can then choose which Free Spins Bonus you’d like to play:
- Incremental Wilds. This option will give you 6 free spins and the monkey will add a Sticky Wild to reels 2 or 4 each spin until all symbols on those reels are full of Wilds. Remember, you can win more free spins so this could be a very profitable option.
- Stacked Wilds. This will give you 8 free spins and any Sticky Wilds that appear on reels 2 and 4 will become permanently sticky. You could also land the special Wild symbol on reel 3 which fills up the entire reel but will only stay there for 1 spin.
- Starting Wild. This one gives you the most free spins at 10, and also provides you with a sticky Wild on the middle position of reel 3. You can also land more sticky Wilds on reels 2 and 4 for extra wins.
Monkey King slot is from Yggdrasil, a company who has brought you some great games such as Dark Vortex slot. It has a lot to offer in terms of features which are mostly focused on the Wild symbols. These can result in some big wins especially with the Free Spins Bonus, and I think it’s great that you have the option to choose how you’d like to play it. The other smaller features in the game are also surprisingly rewarding like the Golden Monkey Feature or the Treasure Chest, and I really appreciate that so many things have been including in this slot. I think it’s a lot of fun and definitely worth checking out but let me know what you think in the comments down below.
