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.
