The wombat says: Monkeys surfing. Yes, that’s the theme of this classic slot from Microgaming. We’ve already got pigs flashing the cash in Piggy Riches, why not surfing monkeys?
If you think it sounds a bit left-field Wombat fans, you’d be right. Meet the 5 primate dudes who are on their holidays who decided to head to Hawaii to grab some sun, sea, surf and a whole load of bananas. Your surfing slot bros include a grinning Gorilla, a lady Lemur, a Macaque, an Orangutan and a Gibbon. Help these guys catch some serious waves while you win a whole load of coinage. It’s somewhat different to 1429 Uncharted Seas– another nautical game we have here at Wombat Casino.
Complete with background graphics of sunny beaches, surfboards, swaying palm trees and VW Campers, these monkeys really know how to party! But instead of the usual surf fare – jazzy cigarettes and beers on the beach – these surfers have vices that are a bit more fruity in nature. They include; coconuts, mangoes, kiwis, papayas and of course, bananas. The graphics aren’t quite up to games like the Jurassic Park slot, but they are very entertaining!
Big break is 5-reel slot with 15 paylines. Your symbols on the reels include the monkey dudes as your high payers. The Macaque will give you 500 coins for 5, the Orangutan 600, the grinning Gibbon will scoop you 700, while the lady Lemur and the Gorilla are your big ballers paying out a nice 800 or 1000 coins respectively, for 5 of them on the reels. Juicy-looking tropical fruits make up the rest of the symbols, with the coconut paying a paltry 50 coins for 5, while the top prize bananas will give you 150.
There are 2 Wilds in Big Break slot; the Big Break Logo and the Lucky Break. Big Break acts a classic wild and will substitute for any of the monkey symbols. The second one is Lucky Break and turns up only on reel 5. This cheeky little Wild substitutes for ALL symbols on the reels and will also give you a x2 multiplier to boot. Thanks monkey dudes!
Bonus Round and Free Spins
Get 3 or more Munky Wax Scatter symbols and you’ll trigger the Free Spin round. Say hello to 15 Free Spins! During the round the Gorilla, Lemur, Macaque, Orangutan and Gibbon also act as Scatters, meaning your Free Spins can keep on being re-activated endlessly – huzzah!
Then there’s the Surf’s Up Bonus game which is triggered when you land all 5 primates on the reels. You’ll be taken to a new screen in a VW Camper (of course), where it’s time to take part in a classic pick ‘em round. Press the ‘Stop’ button and 1 of the 5 surfing apes on your screen will be picked randomly. Each monkey has a multiplier that will award you with extra coins – the maximum on offer being 7,500! Unfortunately for us though Slot Fans, this feature cannot be triggered during the Free Spins… Boo!
Big Break slot is very fun game to play, with one of the wackiest themes we’ve seen in a while. Ok, it’s a basic slot, but we like the unique 2x Wild features, and the Surf Free Spins can be lucrative if you manage to set them off. Get your 5-a-day here and let the monkey business begin!
