Legend of the Golden Monkey Slot Review

Released: May 2016

The Legend of the Golden Monkey slots game is produced by Yggdrasil Gaming. Yggdrasil Gaming take their name from Norse mythology where Yggdrasil is a magical tree where dragons lived and Odin sacrificed himself. Yggdrasil Gaming are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment – primarily focusing on slots game – and do not offer a full casino platform. They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file. The House Edge of Legend of the Golden Monkey is 4.00%.

Will the mysteries of the serpent unfold for you?

The Legend of the Golden Monkey game has 5 reels which are 3 symbols high. It does not use standard paylines. Instead any three or more matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels starting from either the left or right side of the reels constitutes a win. This is equivalent to 486 standard paylines.

There are two types of Wild symbol when playing Legend of the Golden Monkey. The first Wild symbol only appears on reels 2 and 4. When you receive this Wild symbol it will lock in place for the next spin and will remain locked in place until you receive a non-winning spin. The second type of Wild symbol only appears on reel 3 and when you receive it will remain locked in place for three subsequent spins regardless of the results of the spins.

There are two bonus features when playing Legend of the Golden Monkey. The first bonus feature is activated randomly. When this happened the Monkey will appear and switch round two symbols to result in an improved win.

The second bonus feature can be triggered in two manners: when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Free Spins’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reel or when you receive a ‘Treasure Chest’ bonus symbol anywhere on reel 5 that does not award a cash prize. When this happens you will be given the choice of 3 different free spin features as described below:

– Incremental Wilds – You are awarded 6 free spins. Each spin the Monkey will add a Wild symbol to reel 2 or 4 that will remain locked in place for the duration of the free spins. This continues until reels 2 and 4 are complete Wild reels.

– Stacked Wilds – You are awarded 8 free spins. Reel 3 has Wild symbols stacked three positions high on it for the duration of the free spins. The Wild symbols on reel 2 and 4 will lock in place for the duration of the free spins when received.

– Starting Wild – You are awarded 10 free spins. The middle position of reel 3 is a Wild symbol that is locked in place for the duration of the free spins. The Wild symbols on reel 2 and 4 will lock in place for the duration of the free spins when received.

During the free spins if you receive a Treasure Chest bonus symbol on reel 5 that does not award a cash prize you’ll be awarded two additional free spins.

Conclusion

Legend of the Golden Monkey is another very solid release from Yggdrasil Gaming. Visually it has all the style and appeal that we’ve come to expect from this slots provider, the bonus features are reasonably interesting if not the most original we’ve ever seen and the House Edge is within the preferable range that is most commonly being used today, even if it is right at the top of that range. All in all, a decent choice for a few spins.
