Mr Monkey is a characteristically fun game, with the design of it being brought together by GameOS. It basically offers up a look in to the fun and exciting times of being a monkey. Of course, you’ll need to be in the jungle before you’re able to see such. And this game takes you right there. You will get to see not only the primate, but his animal friends at the same time.
However, what would a game like this be without the inclusion of jungle sounds? Well, fortunately, GamesOS has thought of this too. So, before you spin the reels, you’ll have the sounds of tweeting birds and various other creature sounds in the background. In addition, every time you do press the ‘Spin‘ button, you’ll be greeted with a pleasant-sounding jingle. On the whole, the visual appeal of the game is very much on display. But how about it’s actual gaming features?
Fun Icons and Cheerful Gameplay
Anyone who chooses to play this game will see that the layout incorporates a total of five reels and four rows. This is slightly larger than the standard slot game interface, but it’s still able to offer a pleasing experience on the whole. It is upon these reels that you will find the game’s variety of different icons. These exist primarily in the form of A, J, K, Q and 10 symbols. Joining them is another lower paying icon of a coconut. Medium paying symbols exist in the form of a red striped snake and a frog on a lily pad. The toucan provides another icon, while the banana is the very last one. Additional symbols have been added to provide the game with its specialities.
As well as the design featuring its reels, rows and icons, Mr Monkey also has 50 different pay lines alongside. These have been fixed in position, so you cannot alter them around. Therefore, you will always be wagering on 50 bet lines. One thing that you do have the ability to adjust is the value of the wager that you place per spin. This begins from a minimum of £2.50 and is able to increase up to a maximum of £200 per round. A ‘Turbo‘ button is also available to utilise, speeding up your gameplay. Meanwhile, the ‘Auto‘ button will allow you to spin the reels a consecutive amount of times. This is done at a single chosen wager level.
The fun and quirkiness of the base game is backed up by a few different special features. The first of these is the game’s wild icon. The wild appears as a crazy looking monkey and this will stand in for all other icons on the reels. The only exception to this rule is the game’s scatter icon. Furthermore, the wild will also double the prize pay out that you receive. And, one extra perk of this symbol is that it can also appear in stacked form. This particular perk can only occur on reels two, three and four.
There is also the addition of a scatter icon. This is the game’s own logo and as a scatter it will pay out wherever it shows up. The icon basically multiplies the total stake you play by a specific amount. Should five scatters come in to view, you will receive a multiplier of times 400. Further to this, you will find that if three or more of them appear, you’ll trigger the freespins round. This round gives you a total of 12 freespins in total. The banana icon also obtains an extra perk during this round, showing up as a stacked icon. This is able to appear in such a way on all reels. Finally, during the freespins round all wins will provide a triple pay out.
The Final Word
Mr Monkey is a great offering from this developer. It contains a wonderful range of high quality graphics and a fun underlying theme. The special features aren’t greatly different to what can be found in other slot games reviewed. However, they do stand out nicely in this offering, in general. Add the game’s soundtrack and noises and you’ve got yourself a very appealing option to play.
