Embark on an Epic Journey to the West
Sun Wukong is a 3-row, 5-reel, 15-adjustable payline, online video slot centered around the legendary Monkey King, Sun Wukong, from the infamous Chinese novel Journey to the West. The reels are set against a background showing a path that leads into a mountainous wilderness. The symbols consist of characters from the Monkey King’s story as well as more generic card symbols. The music sets a proper mood for an ancient Chinese quest.
Players can easily track Bet/Line, Win and Total Bet cash values along the bottom of Sun Wukong’s slot screen. To select a Total Cash Bet ranging from 1p – £1125 at SlotsMillion, choose a number of Lines (1 – 15) and a Bet/Line (1p – £75). The Paytable lists pays in coin values which remain fixed despite changes made to the Total Bet. This online slot calculates payline wins by multiplying the Bet/Line by the coin pay. It displays both individual payline wins as well as the total win beneath the reels.
Sun Wukong has 13 colorful symbols showing characters from the legend as well as card symbols. There are 2 special symbols including a Sun WuKong Wild and Scatter. The Wild can replace any regular symbol and applies a Win Multiplier of 2x to any winning combination that it completes. It can also form its own winning combinations. The Sun WuKong Scatter can trigger Free Games and form its own winning combos. The 11 regular symbols, listed in order of highest to lowest value, include: Green (Priest) Character, Blue (Pig) Character, Blue (Bearded Man) Character, Horse, Lotus Bud, Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9.
Sun Wukong’s gameplay is left to right with the exception of the Scatter which does not follow along a payline and can award a coin win from anywhere on the reels. The special symbols and the 2 highest value regular symbols only require 2+ matching for a win. The remaining regular symbols require 3+ matching symbols (starting from reel 1) to win.
To profit along a single payline with all 15 paylines activated, players must get 3+ Wilds, Character regular symbols OR 4+10s or higher. Unlike the rest of the symbol pays, Scatter pays are multiplied by the Total Bet, so get 2+ Scatters to profit.
The Sun Wukong Wild is the highest value symbol of the game showing a value of (10.000, 2000, 200, 10). This symbol gives this online slot the potential to award up to £750,000 for a 5 of a kind match. The Scatter also awards a decent pay showing a value of (100, 25, 5, 2) and awarding up to £112,500 with a 5 of a kind match. Of course, the Progressive version of this slot has the potential to award even more than the Main Game.
Like many Playtech slots, Sun Wukong offers an easy to use Autoplay option. Players may choose from 10, 25, 50 or 99 consecutive spins. Press the large ‘stop’ button during Autoplay to stop the reels more quickly, and press the small ‘stop’ button to end it manually. Game Settings include: switch Turbo Play on/off to speed up gameplay and toggle sound on/off.

Borrow the Canny Wisdom of the Monkey King
While Yggdrasil’s non-progressive Monkey King slot arguably has more to offer by way of graphics, animations and engaging Bonus Features, Sun Wukong offers adequate graphics and the chance to win a Progressive Jackpot which is always an attractive aspect to any video slot. While giving the demo version a 100 spin test run, Sun Wukong produced 2.6 wins every 10 spins or so during the Main Game. 62% of those wins were profitable. Free Spins didn’t activate during the first 100 spins, but activated shortly afterward on spin 116. We chose Kingdom of Heaven and were awarded 10 additional Free Games with the appearance of 2 more Scatters. This Feature awarded 34x the Total Bet.
