Try Monkey King The New Slot From Yggdrasil Gaming
Monkey King is the latest addition to the Yggdrasil video slot games collection. The game has an Eastern theme featuring the Monkey King legend with great animations and excellent symbol details. The background music corresponds perfectly with the theme and the overall fast game play.
Once you take a look at the pay table you may be disappointed because the highest paying symbol only awards a 250 coins win and the wild doesn’t have a payout attached, but there is more than meets the eye.
What makes this slot a really great game is hidden in the payout combinations and in the bonus features available. There are no active pay lines in this game and winning combinations are formed with 3 or more matching symbols, on consecutive reels from left to right or right to left. This comes especially in handy when some of the bonus features are triggered.
Even playing on the minimum $0.25 bet can be profitable with a little luck. There are 4 random features available during base play and one classic bonus round with 3 free spins choices. Players can trigger the Sticky wild or the Countdown wild feature during base play. Each feature awards extra wild symbols on the reels and a combination of both at the same time almost guarantees big wins.
The Sticky wilds can land on reels 2 or 4 and remain on the reels for as long as they are contributing in a win, while the Dropdown wild remains in place for only 3 consecutive spins. Considering the fact that there are no pay lines, the Sticky wilds can stay on the reels for a very long number of spins. The Monkey King and Treasure Chest features are not that interesting and usually award small prizes.
The free spins bonus is triggered by landing 3 or more Free Spin symbols on the reels and the player can choose from Incremental Wilds, Stacked Wilds or Starting Wilds feature. Each has added wild functions and can payout big amounts of coins.
What We love
We have to say that Monkey King is a great video slot game and there is nothing we would like to change about it. The design is great, there are a big number of features and big payouts are possible, making Monkey King a complete video slot game.
What we Do not Like
We like everything there is about this game and we can’t think of any details we would like to change.
When we first saw the game the features looked promising, but the pay table was disappointing with the highest 250 coins payout available. Still Yggdrasil slots usually have some hidden payout potential so we decided to give Monkey King a chance and try it for real play.
What started off as a disappointment turned to joy only after 100 spins spent on the reels. The sticky wild symbol landed on reel 2, followed by another on reel 4. Each spin was a win and soon another sticky wild landed on reel 2. These symbols remained in place for about 60 spins, meaning we had over 60 winning spins in a row.
The Dropdown Wild also found his place on the reels and when the wilds were gone we were left with over 600 x bet in plus on our balance. This is reason enough to try Monkey King for real play because we know even bigger wins are possible.
