Released May, 2016, Monkey King offers an RTP of 96% with Features that include Win All Ways, Free Spin Modes, Treasure Chest coin awards and Monkey King Feature.

Discover the Monkey King’s Temple
This online slot’s 3 x 5 reels are framed by the Koi decorated walls of a temple perched upon a mountaintop. The graphics quality is excellent when compared to slots of its kind with animations such as the Monkey King himself and clouds traveling across the sky. The music has an adventurous tone with traditional Asian instrumentals mingled with orchestra. Play this slot online from any mobile device or desktop.
Monkey King clearly displays values for Bet, Win and Balance in cash (or coins). Choose 1 of 15 Coin Values (0.01 – 5.00) to select a Cash Bet ranging from 25p-£125 at the online casino Vera&John. Paytable values are listed in Coins and remain fixed despite Bet changes. The slot calculates and displays Cash Wins by multiplying the Coin Win x Coin Value.
The slot’s 14 symbols reflect treasure and suits found in a deck of cards. There are 4 special symbols: Sticky Wild, Count Down Wild, Free Spins Bonus and Treasure Chest. Sticky Wilds only show on reel 2 & 4 locking in place until part of a winning combo. The Count Down Wild only shows on reel 3 locking in place for 3 spins. Monkey King’s 10 regular symbols, listed from highest to lowest symbol values, include Bronze Cup, Money Pot, Scroll, Shield, Potion, Crown, Heart, Spade, Clover and Diamond. Get a 4+ match for a coin profit excepting suits which need 5+ to profit.
Monkey King features a Win All Ways gameplay similar to slots like Wild Orient or Happy Birds which also give 243 ways to win. Get 3+ matching symbols starting from reel 1 or 5 to win. The win is granted a multiplier if there are other symbols that share a reel with those from the winning combo. For example, a spin yielding a 3 Heart symbol match across reels 1-3, pays 3 coins, however, if reel 3 has 2 Hearts on it, then a multiplier of 2x is granted for a total win of 6 coins. A multiplier of up to 243x is possible. In addition, winning combos of different symbols can be added together.
Auto play ranges from 10-infinity. Players can set it to stop if cash increases/decreases by a set amount, on a set minimum win or Free Spin activation. Press Spin again to stop reels quickly. Monkey King game settings allow slot values to be displayed in cash or coins, set spacebar to spin, adjust sound effects/background music, and adjust spin speed.
Monkey King Bonus Features
Free Spin Mode(s): 3+ Free Spin Bonus symbols switch gameplay from regular mode to 1 of 3 Free Spin game modes (player’s choice): Incremental Wild, Stacked Wild, or Starting Wild. Each gives a number of Free Spins with a unique Wild Feature. If 4 Bonus symbols trigger Free Spins, an additional prize of 1,000 coins is awarded. If 5 trigger it, then 5,000 coins is the prize! All Sticky Wilds stay in place for all remaining spins.
Choose Incremental Wild Mode for 6 Free Spins with 1 Sticky Wild awarded to either reel 2 or 4 every spin for 6 total Sticky Wilds.
If Stacked Wild Mode is chosen, get 8 Free Spins with the possibility of a random 3-Stacked Wild that expands to cover reel 3 entirely. It only stays for 1 spin.
Starting Wild Mode awards the most spins. Get 10 Free Spins with a Sticky Wild dead center of the 3 x 5 reels where it remains for every spin.
Monkey King Feature: An animated Monkey King shows up randomly during Base and Free Spin Modes. Like Quickspin’s Genies Touch Feature, the Monkey King changes symbols for an improved chance to win.
Treasure Chest: The appearance of 1 Chest on reel 5 awards either a 40-1,000 coin win or 1 Free Spin in Base Game Mode and 2 Free Spins in Free Spin Mode.

Use the Power of the Monkey King to Win Treasure
Yggdrasil’s Monkey King online slot is easy on the eyes. As seen in slots like Nirvana, excellent, detailed graphics are paired with stunning animations. Also like Nirvana, Monkey King gives players the freedom to choose from 3 Free Spin Mode options appealing to slot enthusiasts that like slots which give the opportunity to strategize.
While testing out the demo, we found that this online slot paid low and slow during base gameplay with about 1 win every 10 spins. Out of 100 spins, the Monkey King Feature appeared 4 times, the Treasure Chest appeared once paying 100 coins, and 1 Free Spin activation occurred. We chose Starting Wild Mode and made almost all of our money back by winning 8 out of 10 spins for a total win of 100x our Cash Bet.
