If you feel like playing an online slot game with a bit of a crazy vibe to it, you may want to check out Mad Mad Monkey. This title is brought to you by software manufacturer NextGen Gaming and it’s bananas (pun intended). The game takes place in the middle of the jungle with enormous leaves lining the backdrop and vines crisscrossing the space above the reels; and every now and then the mad monkey will appear from one corner or the other. You can hear it most of the time in the game’s jungle-beat soundtrack, too. As for the graphics, these aren’t of particularly high quality. They are distinctly cartoonish, which is perhaps appropriate for this theme, but there is certainly nothing special about them.
The layout in Mad Mad Monkey, on the other hand, is slightly unusual. It has a grid with 5 reels and 4 rows, instead of the more common 3 rows. In addition, this title comes with 50 paylines, but these are not fixed. Therefore, if you choose to, you can reduce them to a lesser number of active paylines.
This means that stakes can start as low as only 1p per single spin, but the betting range is not the largest we’ve seen from this developer. In fact, you will find that the maximum bet is only £25 per spin.
NextGen Gaming slots often have Gamble features embedded in the setup, and so does Mad Mad Monkey. It will give you the opportunity to gamble your prize from any winning spin for the chance to double or even quadruple it.
The Wild symbol can only appear on the middle reels 2, 3 and 4, and on top of that, it can also land in full reel stacks, making for better winning opportunities. As such, the Wild will also be able to substitute for any of the other symbols on the reels. Thus, it can help contribute to winning combos. If that wasn’t enough, the Wild will also double the payouts for those winning combinations, however, it will not have the capability to replace the game’s Scatter symbol.
The main attraction in Mad Mad Monkey is its Freespins feature, and you will be able to trigger it with the help of the Scatter symbols. To be more precise, you will have to land a minimum of 3 of these symbols simultaneously. And this will, in turn, reward you with a total of 10 free spins. What’s more, during these free spins all prizes will be subject to a 3x multiplier.
On top of that, one of the most lucrative symbols on the reels, the banana, will be able to land in full reels stacks on the screen. Last but not least, you can even retrigger this feature for an additional 10 free spins. Again, you will have to land 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels on the same spin for this to happen.
As far as the variance goes in Mad Mad Monkeys, we’d have to place it somewhere in the low to medium range. So there will be your fair share of smaller wins in the base game, and the bonus feature, in turn, will be able to provide bigger prizes thanks to the multiplier.
