Mad Mad Monkey Slot review
Mad Mad Monkey is a NextGen Gaming-powered video slot with a fun monkey/jungle theme. This 5 reel 50 payline slot game features stacked symbols to increase your chances of winning. Playable from as little as 50p a spin to as much as £10 a spin, it’s a fun and exciting slot game.
The Monkey symbol is the wild, multiplier symbol – basically, you will see the Monkey symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 and when it appears, expect the Monkey to double your wins. You can also get multiple wild symbols on a reel which will make a Monkey symbol stack – this will give you mad, mad prizes. This can happen in the Super Stack Free Games feature outlined below.
As for the scatter, the Mad Mad Monkey logo symbol is the one that triggers the Super Stack Free Games feature when you get 3 or more anywhere on the reels. You are then rewarded with 10 free spins. However, all wins are subject to a 3x multiplier (basically all wins trebled). If you get 3 or more logo symbols during the feature you will receive an additional 10 free spins taking your total to 20.
Look out for the Monkey symbol as this is the wild/multiplier symbol. It will award a 6x multiplier if it forms part of a winning combination. It can also create a symbol stack meaning your chances of winning will increase substantially. Furthermore, the Banana symbol can also create a symbol stack.
I found Mad Mad Monkey to give out small sized wins in the base game with most of the action in the free spins feature. With the stacks available, I’ve managed to win over 300 times my stake on a couple of occasions now – just don’t expect to trigger the feature very often!
I found the game to be a medium variance game which is quite nicely balanced – it’s better than NetEnt’s Go Bananas (which has a similar theme) but can’t come close to NextGen Gaming’s best slot game, 300 Shields. If you like animal-themed slots, you should play the brilliant Raging Rhino by WMS which is one of the most volatile slots on the internet.
