If you have a flair for the orient, then you will love the design, look and feel, and the animations of this game. At its core, Monkey King is a video slots game and has a lot going on. It comes with a maximum win of €125,000. It is based on the legend of Sun Wukong, a monkey born from stone and who had some legendary powers that would make many of the Hollywood’s superheroes look puny before him. Monkey King is a 5 reel, 3 row, and 25 fixed paylines slots game with superb animations.
Look and FeelEverything about this game is oriental themed. The various symbols are cauldrons, shields, vases, scrolls, and the likes. The star of the show is Monkey King himself. Every few spins, the Monkey King suddenly lands on the screen and changes one of the symbols, which works to the advantage of the players. If the symbol change doesn’t win you over, the awesome landing of the monkey king definitely will.
Game PlayThe player wins when any three symbols are in a row, even if they are not in the same line. The value of the different symbols in the decreasing order are vase, cauldron, scroll, shield, and the various cards. The wild cards of Monkey King are fantastic in many ways. Firstly, there is the Sticky Wild. Once you land a Sticky Wild on reels 2 or 4, it stays there for as long as you are getting winning spins. If you are lucky enough to land Sticky Wilds on both reels 2 and 4, then you will keep winning for dozens of spins, because there is always a winning spin somewhere in such a position. This is the closest thing to jackpot you will find here. Another wild symbol, Countdown Wild, does not disappear if you don’t land a winning spin. That’s good right? But, the wild stays for only 3 spins.
FeaturesOnce you land free spins, you have 3 options to spend them on – incremental wilds, stacked wilds, and starting wilds. Incremental wilds gets you 6 free spins and extra sticky wild after each spin. Stacked wilds gets you 8 free spins and a stacked wild in the third wheel. Starting wilds come with 10 free spins and a wild symbol in the middle position on the third reel. They all offer fantastic odds of winning.
VerdictMonkey King is a great slots game. It wins at everything – awesome animations, great character, excellent winning odds, and a high RTP of 96%. It’s a winner.
