Legend of the Golden Monkey
Satisfy the adventurer within and visit the jungle for an audience with the Monkey King in the fantastic slot Legend of the Golden Monkey from the developer Yggdrasil. The slot machine has a majestic feel that starts with the music that greets you when you start the game. There is a lot to do and see, it is a real pleasure to play this game that is packed with special features. The game is set in China and the reels are placed in a jungle temple that is decorated with Chinese lanterns.
The symbols include the poker suits for a lower paying combinations and historic items for more valuable winning combinations. The music is tranquil but gets a lot more lively when you play the game and get winning combinations. The animations with the monkey are beautifully designed and very entertaining. The game features a multitude of different wild symbols, such as Sticky and Count Down wilds, the Monkey King feature, free spins with three different modes and scatter wins.
The variance of the game is medium, which means that you should win smaller amounts regularly, and higher amounts every now and then. The special features of the game trigger regularly, especially the Sticky and Count Down wilds appear relatively often, but it can take a little bit of time to trigger the free spins. However, once they start, you can win a lot of money, as they are usually filled with many wild symbols. This is a game that you should probably play for a while, and with a lower stake, as it may take a while for the free spins to trigger. The theoretical return to player is 96%, which is average for an online slot, and not very generous.
If you like to play casino games on the go, you can also play Legend of the Golden Monkey mobile version that is optimised for iOS, Android and other HTML5 compatible devices. As all other games from the developer Yggdrasil, the game is fully compatible with touch screen devices and supported on many different mobile devices.
