Test your luck in Legend of the Golden Monkey, an online slot game based on Chinese mythology, brought to you by Yggdrasil Gaming.
It’s played across a five-reel slot with three rows and pays all ways. This means that wins can be formed anywhere on the board, as long as there are at least three adjacent symbols starting from the left or from the right. Betting starts at a minimum of 25p and goes up to £125.
There are two types of Wilds in Legend of the Golden Monkey; Sticky wilds and Countdown wilds. The sticky wilds only appear on reels two and four, and will stay for as long as you keep winning. Countdown wilds only show up on row three, and will stay in place for the number of spins denoted by the number attached to the symbol, regardless of if you win or not.
If that’s not enough to bolster your riches, there’s the treasure chest feature which only appears on reel five, making it a rare occurrence. However, if you do manage to land one, the effects can be greatly beneficial as it will either award up to 1000 coins or activate the free spins mode. During Free Spin mode, it can add an extra two Free Spins to your overall total.
If you land three or more scatter symbols anywhere in the game, you’ll be given the option to select one of three free spin modes.
The first, Incremental Wilds, awards six free spins and adds a permanent sticky wild to either reel two or four for each free spin. Stacked Wilds will get you eight free spins, with sticky wilds on the second and fourth reel, plus an extra stacked Wild on the third reel.
The last choice, Starting Wilds, gives 10 free spins and a permanent sticky wild in the middle of reel three right from the get-go, with sticky wilds also placed on reels two and four.
As is generally the case with Yggdrasil games, the graphics and animations are top notch. When the wilds come into play, the outlines of the affected symbols go ablaze and continue until you stop landing those winning combinations.
This fantastic slot features a trove full of special features. One of these is the Golden Monkey himself, who’ll randomly pop up from time to time at the bottom of the screen and change one of your symbols, potentially granting another win.
Throughout your play, you’ll be accompanied by a soothing Chinese-inspired soundtrack that steadily speeds up as you spin and adds a selection of drums, string and wind instruments. This really adds to the adventurous feel of the game and is a nice touch by Yggdrasil.
With stunning visuals, great special bonuses and a load of unique wilds, the Legend of the Golden Monkey slot game is a charming addition to Oddsking’s line-up. You can play it and many more slots at Oddsking.
