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.
