Review of Legend of the Golden Monkey

Yggdrasil’s Legend of the Golden Monkey video slot quite does not remind us of a slot that we have already reviewed. We really feel like this is something different that they have done and we really like it. Usually when you think of Yggdrasil, you tend to think of Viking themed casino slots, however this oriental style is something different for this leading game provider and we like it!

The Legend of the Golden Monkey is based on a Chinese folklore hero, and he definitely looks like a hero when you see him in this video slot. As you first enter the game, you are presented with a beautiful soundtrack which gives a sense of mystery and wonder as to what will happen in the slot! When you start spinning the music speeds up and changes, we really like how it does this also, good job there Yggdrasil.

The theme is oriental as mentioned above, and the background is a sort of oriental house with red lanterns hanging down and goldfish surrounding the walls, it really is beautiful upon first glance. The symbols could have been made a little better in our opinion, I think that they could have been more brightly coloured and easy to understand what they are. Nonetheless, the graphics are still lovely to see and play on a casino slot.

Sticky Wilds

If you win on a Sticky Wild, it will end up staying in it’s position until the next round. As long as you keep winning on each spin, the Sticky Wild will stay on the grid. The Sticky Wilds on the Legend of the Golden Monkey will only appear on the 2nd and 3rd reels. Sticky Wilds are permanently sticky during all 3 of the Free Spin modes that will be listed below.

Count Down Wilds

The Count Down Wild symbol can appear on reel 3. This symbol lands with a certain number attached to it. The Count Down Wild will be sticky between game rounds, meaning that it will stick to one place on the reel while you spin. If a Count Down Wild lands behind another Count Down Wild, it will be reset to 3, and if you increase the bet size with one of these wilds present on the screen, the Wild will be forfeited. If you decrease the bet size, it will not affect the Count Down Wild.

Golden Monkey Feature

The Golden Monkey feature is probably considered one of the most exciting components in this video slot. It can be triggered randomly at any time during a spin, the Golden Monkey will enter the game and change one symbol into another symbol to your advantage.

Treasure Chest Feature

The Treasure Chest symbol will appear on reel 5, when it lands you will be awarded with a coin win between 40-1000 coins, or a Free Spin trigger. If the spin which gave the chest already gave Free Spins by Free Spin symbols, then the Treasure Chest will always give coins. The Treasure Chest feature, and the Golden Monkey feature occurs in Stacked Wilds, Free Spins, and Starting Wild Free Spins. During Free Spins, it may contain +2 Free Spins instead of a Free Spin trigger. The Golden Monkey feature is activated automatically.

Free Spins

If you manage to get three or more Free Spin symbols, it will trigger the Free Spin mode. This mode is played with the same bet and lines that activate it. There are no Free Spin symbols during Free Spins so it’s not possible to re-trigger. When you have Free Spins you will need to select one of three Free Spin mode options;

  • Incremental Wilds- This will give you 6 Free Spins, and with each Free Spin, 1 Wild is added to reel 2, or reel 4 until you end up with 6 Wilds on the last spin.

  • Stacked Wild- This will give you 8 Free Spins, there is a 3 Stacked Wild that can land on the middle reel, however this Wild does not stick.

  • Starting Wild- This will give you 10 Free Spins. It will start with a Wild in the middle position of the reels and will stay for the entire Free Spin session. Count down Wilds landing under Starting Wild are not carried over to the main game.

There is more, if you manage to get more than 3 Free Spin symbols, you can also win a coin win:

  • 3 Free Spin symbols: Free Spin mode

  • 4 Free Spin symbols: Free Spin mode + 1000 coins

  • 5 Free Spin symbols: Free Spin mode + 5000 coins
