Meet a monkey who seems to have no financial problems in its life. Just how he’s achieved that I have no idea, perhaps he’s got a bit-part in the latest ‘Planet of the Apes’ movie? Well, he’s doing well for himself and hopefully so will you after playing this three-reel slot from Microgaming.
You’ll love the look of this game and that’s all down to the great image of the monkey. That’s in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen underneath the all-important reels. He’s in a suit, with a bow tie and some fancy sunglasses (well he probably needs them where he lives). This wealthy monkey has a big smile on his face as he prepares to down another banana. One suspects that isn’t his first of the day and won’t be his last.
The design of the Monkey’s Money logo is attractive too with Monkey in gold and Money in green. It all helps create an attractive looking game that you’ll be keen to play.
‘Monkey’s Money’ has three-reels and just the one pay-line, very reminiscent of the games that were common place up and down the country years ago. There are two theme-related symbols, namely the wealthy monkey and a bunch of bananas. Aside from those there are the red 7’s and the single, double and triple bars in black and white. It seems the monkey isn’t too keen on cherries as they don’t make their usual appearance.
As you might imagine, the monkey symbol is the most important one in this game. It’s also the wild symbol so that means it has the ability to substitute for other symbols in the game in order to get you some winning combinations. Unlike in some Microgaming slots there’s no multiplier attached to any wins that the wild creates. Nor are there any bonus games here, so if you’re looking to get some free spins then you need to be looking elsewhere. It’s still a fun game to play though.
As well as being the wild symbol, the monkey is also the highest paying symbol..If you want to win the top prize of 3000x your coin stake, you have to be playing with a maximum two coins. If you’re only playing with one coin and those three monkey symbols end up on the single pay-line then you only win 1000x your coin stake. There’s a big incentive to go for the jackpot, simply stake an amount you can comfortably afford to lose.
The coin range in ‘Monkey’s Magic’ goes from €0.25 to €5 which is fairly standard for these Microgaming releases. To set the amount you want to stake on each spin of the reels, just use the +/- button to do so. Then, when deciding whether to play one or two coins, either press ‘Bet One’ or ‘Bet Max.’ That means the minimum stake with which you have a chance of winning the jackpot is €0.50 and the maximum €10, Not a game that will attract high flyers. Other big wins include either 300x or 600x for three red 7’s and 100x or 200x for three of the triple bars.
It’s also possible to set an autoplay feature for this slot. Handy if you fancy popping away from the screen for a while to get a banana. You can either set your own figure or go for the standard 5x or 10x automated spins.
This is a fun game to play. It has a good theme that will definitely put a big smile on your face. Two theme related symbols is good for a game like this and the 3000x top prize is certainly something you’ll be glad to get in your account balance. If you are new to slot games then this would be ideal for you to play before moving onto more complex releases. Definitely worth playing..
