Monkey Mania Theme/Symbols

Monkey Mania has cartoon style graphics and is colourful and bright. Set in a jungle with trees and mountain ranges in the backdrop, symbols include 1, 2 and 3 bars, bananas, coconut cocktails, palm trees and red sunglasses – the latter pays 37.5 x stake for 3 in combination.

In terms of winning combinations, paylines 1, 2, 3, 7 and 8 pay from left to right with paylines 4, 5 and 6 paying top to bottom only.

Respin Mania! feature

The cheeky monkey is the scatter symbol – when you get 3 or 4 anywhere on the reels, you’ll will win 5 or 10 times your stake. If you get 5 anywhere on the grid, the Respin Mania! feature is triggered and those scatters become wild symbols.

You then get a free respin with all the triggering monkey symbols transforming into sticky wild symbols which remain in position. 3 monkey symbols will then give you a payout of 43.75 x stake – if you manage to get 9 of them, you’ll win 131.25 x stake.

Jackpot Mania! feature

Monkey Mania comes with a Jackpot Mania! feature – this is triggered randomly and gives you 3 initial respins. Here, only monkey symbols and blanks appear on the reels. The monkey symbols lock in position – each monkey that lands on the reels will reset the respins tally to 3.

The respins continue when you run out of respins or the reels are filled entirely with monkey symbols. Here’s what you will win depending on how many monkey symbols you see:

  • 4 Monkeys = 5 x stake win
  • 5 Monkeys = 10 x stake
  • 6 Monkeys = 25 x stake
  • 7 Monkeys = 50 x stake
  • 8 Monkeys = Grand Jackpot (starts at £9,000)
  • 9 Monkeys = Mega Jackpot (starts at £90,000)

As you can see, getting 8 or 9 monkey symbols will result in a progressive jackpot being won – the one you want is the Mega Jackpot which will guarantee you at least £90,000.

Monkey Mania thoughts

The Monkey Mania jackpot slot is entertaining but rather symbol – in the Respin Mania! feature, which is quite difficult to trigger, you can win up to 131.25 x stake which isn’t the biggest payout we’ve come across. It’s all about the Jackpot Mania! feature where the 2 progressive jackpots can be won.

With an RTP of 97.03%, Monkey Mania should give you plenty of wins (of the smaller kind) and stretch out your bankroll. However, you’ll want to play this game if you fancy your chances of winning a progressive jackpot – it doesn’t offer much else otherwise.

If you like monkey themed slots, Blueprint Gaming’s Return of Kong Megaways slot has a similar tongue-in-cheek feel but comes with plenty of bonus features and potential 50,000 x stake wins on each spin. Another option is NextGen Gaming’s Gorilla Go Wilder slot where you can win up to 37,500 x stake on every spin.
