Legendary Chinese tales form the basis of this action-packed online slot machine from IGT; it’s called The Monkey Prince and it offers players several wild features as well as some simian free spins to enjoy.
The Monkey Prince is a five reel slot with four rows and sixty fixed paylines; the eponymous character cavorts to the left of those reels underneath a ‘mask meter’ which we shall explain shortly while the gold-rimmed symbols spin against a backdrop of rocks and trees.
Stylised dragons and lions are some of the high value symbols along with gold rings, gold earrings and other assorted jewellery; J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
There’s a sparkly gold wild which will substitute for all others to help form winning combos except for the scattered red doors and coloured masks.
You may have noticed the three meters above the Monkey Prince in the upper left corner of the screen and you’ll begin the game with these positions partially filled; each time a blue, red or gold mask appears on the reels it will fill up one position in the corresponding row. When a row is filled the following features are awarded:
- Blue Masks – three or four wild symbols are added for the current spin.
- Red Masks – one reel becomes completely wild for the current spin.
- Gold Masks – one symbol picked at random becomes the centre of a 3×3 ‘surrounding’ wild.
This is triggered by landing at least three of the red door scatter symbols anywhere in view and you’ll now get to choose from the following options during this round:
- Three Scatters – 25 free spins + 4 extra wilds/10 free spins + two wild reels/5 free spins + ‘surrounding’ wild.
- Four Scatters – 30 free spins + 4 extra wilds/15 free spins + two wild reels/10 free spins + ‘surrounding’ wild.
- Five Scatters – 50 free spins + 4 extra wilds/25 free spins + two wild reels/15 free spins + ‘surrounding’ wild.
The Monkey Prince combines traditional oriental styles with some clever bonus features to give us a slot with lots charm, character and interesting wild features. The RTP is slightly low 94.16%.
