Join China’s legendary Monkey King on a quest for treasure and glory in Sun Wukong, a historical adventure themed slot from Playtech. Available to play on desktop devices, it’s a 5 reel, 15 payline game that comes with a bonus feature that offers up to 20 free spins initially as well as some tasty multipliers. Look out too for the Wu Shi Jackpot that can deliver some mighty progressive payouts. Play from between 15p and £1,125 per spin.
The visuals in Sun Wukong are simple but very tastefully done – set against a rural backdrop, the reels include Chinese styled playing card characters alongside fruit, horses and a range of characters from the famous folk tales. The action plays out to a gentle, Asian style soundtrack.
There are 2 main ways that the mythical Monkey King can help you hunt down a big payday – first up is the Sun Wukong Free Games feature which is triggered when you land 3 or more Sun Wukong logo symbol anywhere on the reels. Once active, you’ll be given a choice of 3 free spins/multiplier combinations:
- Opt for the Valley of the Sun and you can look forward to 20 free spins with all wins boosted by a 2x multiplier and doubled.
- Choose the Mountain of Fruit and Flowers for 10 free spins complete with a 4x multiplier.
- The Kingdom of Heaven offers the fewest spins with just 8 on offer – the upside is that all of your wins during these games will benefit from a 5x boost.
You can re-trigger even more free spins here so hope to see the Sun Wukong logo symbol during your freebies. That’s a total of 40 free spins (with a 2x multiplier) or 16 free spins with a 5x multiplier!
Sun Wukong also comes with the Wu Shi Jackpot – this can be triggered at random on any spin and will take you through to the Jackpot Round where 4 progressive jackpots are on offer. Spin the wheel and collect 3 of the same lion symbol to determine whether it’s the mini, minor, major or grand jackpot you’ll be taking home.
Although the likeliest route to a decent win will come via the features, big wins are possible during the base game. The Monkey King symbol is the game’s wild, substituting for all other symbols apart from the scatter. Any winning amount that includes a the wild will see that payout doubled. Land 5 wilds in a payline for a massive payout of 10,000 coins.
The Monkey King may have been a mystical monarch but the big money on offer in Sun Wukong is very real – this slot is well designed and comes with a nice range of features. Throw in the multiplier with the free spins and the chance of scooping a progressive payout, then Sun Wukong becomes an entertaining and playable slot. If you like Chinese themed slots, Thai Temple from Playtech is very good, highly volatile and also offers a progressive jackpot.
