This 5-reel video slot by Yggdrasil Gaming, titled “Legend of The Golden Monkey Slot”, is clearly inspired by the book “Journey To The West”. But don’t worry, you don’t have to have read it, or know the story for that matter, to get into the mystic, wild fun of this game! This is because there is only one character here, the Monkey King, in all his glory!
You can enter this promising adventure via any of your preferred mobile devices. Fantasy worlds have never been so easily accessible before! Furthermore, like all Yggdrasil slots, this one also offers you an Autoplay option, which can certainly come in handy for all you multitaskers out there!
Base Game offers 2 Wild Types
And they don’t even behave like normal Wilds, either! One of them is a Sticky Wild: it will stay on your screen for as long as it takes, until it has provided a win for you. The other Wild Symbol will also stay on the screen, but for no more than 5 Spins. It’s a bit more complicated than that, as you’ll read on below.
The Sticky Wild is represented by a Golden Monkey head, and makes its appearance on reels 2 and 4. As for the other type of Wild Symbol, also called the ‘Count-Down Wild’, it is a golden ornate one which is impossible to miss. In the middle it has a number from 3 to 5, and appears on reel 3. The number we mentioned determines how many Spins it will stay on your screen.
During any random Spin, our protagonist will make his grand appearance, and proceed to kung-fu whip anything on that screen, from a win, to extra Wilds, and even a Treasure Chest Bonus! The last one, a Treasure Chest Symbol (duh!) appears only on reel 5. And if you are lucky to have it land on this reel, you’d be looking at anything from 40-1000 coins!
It may also be a Free Spin Trigger, though that is a much rarer occurrence, so don’t keep your hopes solely on that. Getting back to the Monkey, by doing this, he will change one Symbol in your favor! All the while, the player will be feasting their eyes on those wondrous animations Yggdrasil has created.
Then Suddenly…Free Spins!
Between all those things we mentioned above, you, the lucky player, will be able to pick between as many as 3 Free Spin Games! Our personal favorite would have to be the one where you are granted a Sticky Wild with each spin, as well as up t 6 Spins. Though we must admit that the Free Spin Bonus with the Stacked Wild Symbols is also quite of the rewarding variety. We feel it’s only fair to also inform you of the third kind: 10 Free Spins + a Starting Wild. This means the middle reel, reel 3, starts with a Wild Symbol, which stays Sticky throughout these Free Spins.
You may be looking at these Bonus Features at every 50 Spins or so, though you won’t always be so fortunate. At other times, it may take as many as 200, or even 300 Spins for you to get there. They certainly won’t be boring Spins however, as don’t forget that the Flying Monkey and all those Wild Symbols will still keep you entertained!
Having said all this, we should mention that it may not be as big on wins as some of the other video slots by Yggdrasil Gaming. And yet, we know that many players among you, including ourselves, in fact, find enjoyment ‘simple kind of complexity’, which is hard to beat, to be sure!
The coin values range from 0,01 to 5, while the minimum bet per spin here is 0,25, and the maximum one per spin – 125 coins. As for the maximum win, here it amounts to 100,000 coins! We should also mention that this is an ‘wins all ways’ slot. this means that the Symbols will pay from left to right, just as long as they are adjacent to each other, and not on any pay-line.
Mystical Monkey Moolah!
With so many interesting things on offer, such as Free Spins, Wilds, and other Bonuses (all of which increase your chances of winning large), we see no reason why you wouldn’t want to give this slot a spin or two. If you agree with us, you can do so on one of our top-rated online casinos. You may end up doing kung-fu out of pure joy!
