Rather than being set in a deep jungle, this slot is all about a young girl and her love for monkeys. The monkey in question is a cute cartoon one – about as far removed from the images you’ll find on Amaya’s King Kong or King Kong Skull Island as possible. Along with the monkey, you’ll find tiki masks, bongo drums and bananas on the reels.
This slot has a 2-part bonus feature. First you go through picks games, which get you a number of spins and a multiplier. You’ll then enjoy some free spins. You can also get decent sized line wins and scatter prizes from the base game.
All the symbols on this 20 win-line slot are inside bamboo squares, which are roped together at the corners. There is no flexibility in the number of win-lines, though you do have a choice of coin sizes (from 1c and up) and can bet up to 10 coins per line. Strangely, the default is set to zero. If you try and spin before clicking the ‘bet 20’ button at least once, you will get a message telling you to pick and amount to bet. As you would expect from an Amaya online slot, auto play is offered.
Wild symbols show 2 bongo drums in a beach setting. These will dance (along with sound effects) when involved in a win. The prize for these is way higher than the next highest paying symbol. If you get 5 wilds on a win line, 5,000 coins are coming your way. You will get 1000 coins for 4, 100 coins for 3 and 15 coins for just 2 of a kind. All wins pay from the left.
In addition to having its own prizes, the wild substitutes for the other regular symbols. Any win which involves one or more wilds is doubled.
The regular symbols are topped by the monkey, which is worth 300 coins for 5. The girl who loves the monkey comes next at 250 coins – a prize shared with the banana. The higher paying symbols are completed by a red heart, which is worth 200 coins. Playing card symbols, aces down to 10’s make up the smaller wins.
Tiki mask scatters pay a prize based on the total amount in view. The prizes are multiples of your total spin amount. If you get 5 masks in a single spin, your prize is 200x your bet. You get 15x that bet for 4, 2x for 3 and 1x for just 2. Scatter wins are added to any regular line wins from the same spin.
Bonus symbols show gift boxes wrapped in a pink bow. You need 3 or more of these to trigger the bonus feature. This starts with 2 picks games, before starting free spins.
The first picks round sees 6 brightly colored gift boxes which appear to be on poles. These become highlighted as you move your mouse over them. You choose one, which will open, revealing a monkey and a number of free spins. You then move to another screen, where you get to pick from 6 gifts. This time a multiplier is revealed which applies to your wins for the free spins.
Those spins then start, moving quickly. The bonus symbols are in play, meaning that re-triggering this bonus is possible.
This slot is not the most recent in design terms, though was nicely created with some attention to the small details. Around the reels you’ll find a beach scene, with palm trees and the sea stretching out beyond. There are gaps between the symbols, so you’ll see more this scene while the reels are spinning.
The monkey symbol is holding on to the bamboo frame. Many of the other symbols have a lot of hearts, including the playing card symbols. None stand out graphically, though they are clean and clear. Sounds are mostly generic, with some monkey noises and drumming ‘tunes’ thrown in.
There are some endearing qualities about this game – though you need to expect a generally older slot. The top line win is a plus, with 5,000 coins for 5 of the wild symbols. During the free spins bonus round, this could come with a multiplier. While the picks game is nothing too special, that combination of spins and multiplied wins will keep your interest high.
