Enjoy some simple jungle action in Monkey Business Deluxe, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Blueprint Gaming. This is one of the developer’s more straightforward games both in terms of design and features. The free spins round can still pay dividends though thanks to the monkey symbol which can boost your feature win by 2x, 3x or 4x. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 20p and £200 per spin.
There’s a bright, colourful feel to the visuals in Monkey Business Deluxe. The plain white reels include A to 10 playing cards plus an assortment of cartoon-style jungle creatures. The snake and elephant each deliver payouts of up to 5 times your total stake per payline followed by the bird which pays up to 7.5x. The best symbol is the lion which will get you 2.5, 7.5 or 12.5 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination.
There’s also a standard wild. As well as replacing all other symbols it too offers payouts of 2.5, 7.5 or 12.5 times your stake. Joining the standard wild is the gold wild. When this lands, it expands and turns the whole of the reel wild – this is called the Golden Wilds feature.
Monkey Business Deluxe comes with a Monkey Bonus feature. It’s triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the explorer on the same spin. You’ll then receive 10 free spins. If the cheeky monkey appears during those free spins, you could be in for a bumper multiplier boost.
The precise amount depends on how many explorer scatters triggered the free spins. With 3, 4 or 5 scatters the multiplier is 2x, 3x or 4x. That multiplier applies to all of your feature win, not just a single payline or even a single spin win.
You’ll also have a chance at landing a potentially bumper jackpot prize as Monkey Business Deluxe is part of the Jackpot King Network.
There’s nothing complicated about this slot. The visuals are rather basic and the odd gibber from a monkey aside there’s little reference to the jungle theme in the backing track. The gameplay is equally straightforward. There’s nothing massively original here but the monkey multipliers can have a big impact during the feature.
It’s not something we’ll be rushing back to again and again but Monkey Business Deluxe is a diverting enough slot and worth a quick look if you like the wild theme. You can win 500 times your stake on every spin with 2,000 times your stake up for grabs on free spins with the 4x multiplier. It’s a decent slot but would much rather play the prehistoric themed Primal MegaWays (from Blueprint Gaming).
