The slots world already has plenty of wizard-themed games, so WGS Technology added a twist to the wizard in Magic Monkey by making him a primate. Set in the spell-casting monkey's castle lair, this 5-reel, 25-payline game offers several unique symbols along with a few special features. What are these features and symbols? Find out as we discuss Magic Monkey's symbols, betting options and bonus round.
Symbols and Betting
This slot's symbols include a spell book, green potion, crystal ball, dragon, banana, the Magic Monkey and generic letters/numbers. The graphics aren't bad, but they also look like a low-quality cartoon, meaning you won't be blown away with this aspect. You will, however, see a few entertaining animations, like in many WGS slots.
Moving to betting options, you can change paylines from 1-25 and coin size from $0.01 - $10.00. This makes the lowest bet worth $0.01 and the highest wager $250.00. You can also keep the reels spinning with Autoplay, and quickly play all 25 paylines by choosing Bet Max.
Magic Monkey Features: Free Spins and Multipliers up to 100x
The Magic Monkey is the wild symbol, substituting for every symbol except the banana to make a winning payout. This monkey is also the highest-paying symbol, delivering 6,000 credits when he appears 5 times in an active payline.
The banana is a scatter symbol and multiplies your payouts by 2x (2 symbols), 5x (3 symbols), 20x (4 symbols) and 100x (5 symbols). The banana also triggers the free spins bonus when it appears 3 or more times anywhere on the reels. You'll be awarded 20 free spins with a 2x multiplier on any wins. And we have to say that this is quite a few spins for any online slots game.
Play Magic Monkey on Your Mobile Device
Like many WGS slots, Magic Monkey is available for play on Android, iOS Apple and Windows devices. You can of course play this game through Flash on your PC or Mac.
In conclusion, Magic Monkey looks like many other WGS slots in terms of betting options, graphics and special features. In some ways, it's a generic 5-reel game that won't appeal to you if you're into the latest slots. But Magic Monkey also stands out with its twist on the wizard genre, and by giving you 20 free spins rather than the common 10-15 during the bonus round.
We won't full-heartedly endorse Magic Monkey as a slot that's going to change your gaming experience. But the fun theme does make this game worth 15-45 minutes of your time.
