We are happy to see that Yggdrasil Software is working tirelessly on increasing their casino games portfolio by launching top of the line pokie games on the market. Each experienced gambler has surely played some of their video pokies and will agree that most have great design and unique bonus features.
Monkey King is their latest addition and fits the pattern of a superb video pokie game. The design, animations and background music are all done with high level of detail and contribute to the great visual appearance. The pay table can be disappointing, because the symbols have a small payout up to a maximum of 250 coins.
Still Monkey King can provide some great wins because of the many features that can be won. Also this pokie doesn’t have any standard pay lines and wins are formed with 3 matching symbols on neighboring reels, starting from left to right and vice versa.
The bonus features are the main details that make this game attractive. Players can win several random bonus features during base play and one of the 3 free spins features in the main free spins bonus. From the random features the most important and profitable ones are the Sticky Wild and the Dropdown Wild.
The Sticky Wild only lands on reels 2 and 4 and is held in place for as long as he is substituting in a win, while the Dropdown Wild only lands on the third reel and stays in place for 3 consecutive spins. In the free spins bonus players can make several choices depending on their taste.
The Incremental Wilds feature has 6 free spins total, with sticky wilds added in each spin on reels 2 and 4, making the last spin with 2 full wild reels. The Stacked Wilds features has 8 free spins and sticky wild symbols on reels 2 and 4, but there is also a chance for a stacked wild symbol to land on the entire central reel.
The Starting Wild Feature awards 10 free spins with a starting sticky wild symbol on the third and a chance for sticky wild symbols to land on the second and fourth reel.
What We love
We love every aspect of Monkey King. The visual appearance, the bonus features and the big possible payouts are very attractive and we are sure many players will share our opinion.
What we Do not Like
Monkey King is one of the few new video pokie game releases where we can’t find anything we would like to change. Everything fits our taste making Monkey King the perfect game to play.
Definitely one of our top choices for future play. The game play is fast, no fancy animations to distract you and you can play on a small $0.25 minimum bet. The random bonus features come often and it’s only a matter of luck into landing the best possible combination.
We were thrilled to see that wins of over 600 x bet are possible in the very short time we spent spinning the reels. We can only recommend to all pokie players to try the game for real and hope to see even bigger wins from this game in the future.
