The Legend of the Golden Monkey was created by Yggdrasil. It offers different kinds of wilds, which will be elaborated later on in this review. It operates on five reels with three rows and it offers a Win All Ways.
The theme is fantasy and you will find ancient artefacts such as potions, ancient scrolls, and shields. You can play it in casinos online or on demo mode for free. The RTP of the game is 96.10%.
How to Play the Game
The first step to take, should you play this on a casino, is to set your coin value. The lowest is 0.01 and the maximum is 5. This will be automatically multiplied to 25, not because it has 25 pay lines but because there are more than 25 ways to win and you automatically have a stake on all of these.
For a player to win, you must land three same symbols on three consecutive reels, either from left to right or right to left. The number of same symbols that appear on consecutive reels also awards a multiplier. The amount of your bet does not impact the payout because the pay table is fixed. The prize money is equal to the paytable value multiplied to your stake.
Here is the pay table:
|HIGH-VALUE SYMBOL PAY TABLE|
|LOW-VALUE SYMBOL PAY TABLE|
Jackpots and Bonuses
The game features several ways to improve your winning odds as shown below. There is no jackpot in the game but it offers a different kind of bonus game.
- Sticky Wild – represented by the Golden Monkey. A sticky wild stays in its slot for as long as you are winning. It only appears in reels 2 and 4.
- Free Spins – similar to a scatter symbol, it can appear anywhere. You get free spins if you land at least three.
- 3X = one spin
- 4X = one bonus spin plus 1,000 coins
- 5X = free spin plus 5,000 coins
- Incremental Wilds – the Golden Monkey will add a permanent wild on either reel 2 or 4. It will stay there until the whole reel is filled with wilds.
- Stacked Wilds – this can appear only on reel 3.
- Starting Wilds – if you are lucky, you can get a permanent sticky wild on reel 3, row 2.
- Count Down Wilds – this is represented by a number. It only appears on reel 3. It will stay in position until the countdown spin is over.
- Golden Monkey – this will appear randomly and change a symbol to make you win.
You can also win if you land a Treasure Chest. This either pays out 1,000 coins or gives you free spins. The free spin games will give you either 1,000 coins or another two extra free spins. This only appears in the fifth reel.
