The Monkey Prince Slot Review
The Monkey Prince slot is a 5 reel, 4 row, 60 payline slot from IGT. Originally a land based casino game, the slot takes inspiration from an old Chinese folk tale. The Chinese influence is evident from the outset as all the slot icons are on theme. Amongst the icons are various items of jewellery as well as golden lions and dragons. The remaining icons are the usual J, Q, Ks. To the left of the game you’ll find The Monkey Prince who stands regally for the most part. However, occasionally he’s happy to perform a few tricks.
How To Play The Monkey Prince
Betting on The Monkey Prince slot starts from just 1p. At Jackpotjoy, this wager can be increased from a minimum of 60 up to a maximum of £18. Other casinos may allow higher wagering. Surprisingly the slot doesn’t offer any kind of autoplay feature. Or, at least, not one that we could see! The wild is the top paying symbol and pays out x1000, x120 and x50 for 5, 4, and 3 on a winning payline respectively. Wilds substitute all symbols except for the bonus and mask symbols.
The masks are part of the game’s features. Above The Monkey Prince is a rack of masks – yellow, red and blue. The racks fill up during game play when they appear on the reels. Once a rack is full of five masks of the same colour then this gives The Monkey Prince special powers. These powers are in fact wilds and as follows: Scattered Wilds (blue), Random Wild Reels (red) and Surrounding Wilds (yellow). After the feature has been used the masks are reset to zero. Our advice is don’t get too excited by these features. During our trail play we won nothing with them!
Free Spins Bonus
The main bonus feature of The Monkey Prince is a free spins bonus round. This is activated when 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols appear on the reels. Before the bonus starts players are offered a choice of free spins and wilds. For example, for three bonus symbols you could choose 25 free spins with 4 random wilds. However, you could also opt for 10 free spins with 2 random wilds, or 5 free spins with 1 surrounding wild. Similar options are available for 4 and 5 bonus symbols. The maximum number of free spins offered is 50.
The Spin On The Monkey Prince
The Monkey Prince is a decent game with some nice bonus features. It’s not too cartoony and the animation is excellent. Another plus point is that it does have the look and feel of a Vegas land based casino game – something a lot of slots don’t. The slot is tailored for mobile, desktop and tablet play. However, an autoplay option would have been a nice feature. The theoretical return to player (RTP) is between 92.14% and 96.16%.
