Stake Logic Games have certainly outdone themselves with the design and theme of the Monkeys of the Universe slot game, it is unlike anything they’ve previously created.
The slot has been design to look like a combine mixture of a comic superhero and the Planets of the Ape film. Surrounding your reels, there is a scene of destruction with hot flowing lava set against a dark starry sky. The reels are set inside a spaceship of some kind, with various control panels and a window looking into space.
Watch out to the right of your reels, because there is a rogue spaceship on the loose – whether he is there to join you on your quest or not – nobody knows.
As you spin the reels, you will hear a noise which resembles a gun being fired – the type of gun you would find in a sci-fi move – no bangs, just strange sounds.
The symbols on the reels are in-keeping with the theme and feature; card values 10, J, Q, K and A as well as 6 different monkey symbols and the Wheel of Fortune symbol. Each of the card values are set to look like they are exploding from the reels with their comic design.
Monkeys of the Universe video slot game has 5 reels and 10 paylines. You can bet from 1.00 a spin up to 50.00 as you try to win as much as you possibly can.
One of the superhero monkey symbols; Mega Chimp – will award a non-progressive jackpot of 50,000 coins, should you manage to find 5 of a kind on your active payline. The second highest amount available drops considerably from the jackpot prize and it is 5,000 coins. This amount can be won on three different symbols – you will need to match a full payline of one symbol to get this prize value.
Quite a few of the Stake Logic Games feature a bonus to do with a Wheel of Fortune, so it was no surprise to see it as part of this slot game. Any winning combination (bar scatter wins) on the reels will trigger this bonus. All of the symbols on the bonus wheel match those on your reels.
Your winning symbol that rewarded you on the payline will be chosen and when the wheel stops on a symbol, those symbols will be applied to your original win – a bit like a multiplier value.
The scatter symbol rewards you with extra cash – 200 coins for three symbols; 500 for 4 and 5,000 for 5.
Reach for the Stars
Monkeys of the Universe is not the first primate-themed slot from Stake Logic Games, their previous release was King Bam Bam. Whilst the slot games offer very different themes, features and payouts, both offer the potential to win some great amounts of cash. We found Monkeys of the Universe to be a medium variance slot game with plenty of ways to win cash prizes.
The bonus wheel feature can be very lucrative, especially if you can land on the Mega Chimp symbol as he is the biggest paying symbol on the reels. There may not be many features to this slot game, but what it does offer is enough to keep you playing for longs periods of time in the hope of stumbling across the non-progressive jackpot.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is 97.16%.
