Monkey King was one of the new slots to hit MicroGaming casinos on January 11th 2011. It features 30 paylines, stacked wilds, and a free spins bonus with multipliers and extra wilds.
For some reason I always saw “Money King” when reading about and playing this slot, I even wrote about it a couple times on this site naming it Money King. I couldn’t figure out why a slot named Money King would have an Asian theme with a Monkey as the wild symbol. I finally realized why I was so confused when my wife pointed out the fact that it is actually named Monkey King when she was playing the slot at 32Red Casino the other night.
Free spins are triggered when three or more Monkey King scatter symbols land on the reels during a spin. You are taken to a second screen where you select people on the street to reveal the number of free spins you get, the multiplier for those free spins, and the number of extra wilds. The extra wilds will be stacked on top of the already stacked wilds on the reels. You can win up to 25 free spins with a 4x multiplier and 3 extra wilds to double the number of wilds stacked on each reel.
I’ve had fairly decent luck on this slot, though I have hit better wins during regular spins than during the free spins feature. Seems odd since the chances of hitting more wilds obviously increases when there are more wilds on the reels, but I guess I just haven’t hit free spins at the right time yet. I have always found that if a slot with stacked wilds wants to pay big, it won’t wait for free spins to do so.
See the screenshots below for paytable information, and hopefully I can add some of my personal wins down there soon. Play Monkey King today at any of these Online Casinos.
