The Monkey Prince is a 5 reel, 60 payline slot from IGT that can be played from 60p a spin on all devices. With an Asian theme, it comes with 3 coloured masks which you collect to trigger 3 wild features – you can get up to 4 random wilds, up to 5 wild reels and surrounding wilds. These features apply in the Free Spins Bonus feature where you choose your wild feature with up to 50 free spins on offer – there are wins of up to 1,000 times your stake on each spin as you go on an epic journey to the West.
The Monkey Prince is powered by IGT and has 5 reels and 60 paylines. You go on an epic journey to the West from 60p to £1,800 per spin on all devices including Android and iOS. It comes with exciting wild features including wild reels as well as a Free Spins Bonus feature where you choose your free spins and wild feature.
Visually, I would happily say The Monkey Prince is 1 of IGT’s best offerings – set with the sky kingdom in the background, this Asian themed offering is colourful and bright. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J playing cards as well as 4 jewellery pieces, dragons and lions. You also have the 3 masks (red, yellow and blue) which are vital to 1 of the features. The wild symbol is the most lucrative giving you 1,000 coins for 5 on a payline – it replaces all symbols bar the scatter and 3 masks.
In the base game, you need to collect the coloured masks to fill the corresponding meters – when you collect 5 of 1 of them, you will trigger a wild feature:
- Collect 5 blue masks to trigger the Scattered Wilds feature – here, 3 or 4 random positions become wild
- Collect 5 red masks to trigger the Random Wild Reels feature – between 1 and 5 reels become fully wild
- Collect 5 yellow masks to trigger the Surrounding Wilds feature – 1 random position and all symbols around it become wild
Now, if you manage to get the 5th and final mask in all 3 colours for example, you could play a spin with all wild features in play – this could obviously lead to huge wins!
The Monkey Prince also comes with a Free Spins Bonus feature which is played when you get 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels – you get to travel with the Monkey Prince to the sky kingdom as you get a choice of free spins and wild features. The amount of free spins varies depending on how many scatters you get:
- Scatter Wilds feature – 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 25, 30 or 50 free spins with up to 4 wilds on each free spin
- Random Wild Reels feature – 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 10, 15 or 25 free spins with up to 5 wild reels on each free spin
- Surrounding Wilds feature – 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 5, 10 or 15 free spins with 1 random wild and surrounding positions turning wild on each free spin
Judging from the amount of free spins on offer, the Surrounding Wilds feature is the most lucrative – I would opt for the Random Wild Reels feature in the hope of getting 4 or 5 wild reels on a few free spins. Anyhow, it’s a medium variance offering with maximum wins of 1,000 times your stake on each spin (either in the base game or Free Spins Bonus feature). Overall, a superb slot from IGT – I also recommend you try Legend of the Golden Monkey from Yggdrasil Gaming which has a similar theme.
