The Wombat says: NextGen’s monkey-themed slot is set in a jungle teeming with rainforest wildlife including some brightly parakeets and non-scary looking cobras plus the usual lush-looking jungle vegetation.
Basically Wombat Fans, all you really need to know is that this monkey’s a bit mad and could double your wins (hence Mad Mad Monkey). Let’s delve into the dark jungle canopy and meet this crazy-ass chimp.
Look and Feel
Fun cartoon graphics make up the design here from the makers of the Emerald Isle slot– NextGen. Your reels are set against a jungle background of blues and greens, and the reels are chocka with yet more rain-forest themed symbols. Look out for the monkey as he pops his head out from the side of the reels from time to time. He also hangs down from the top of the reels when you scoop a win – the little weirdo. Anyone else find his toothy grin a bit on the freaky side?
Mad Mad Monkey slot has 5 reels, 4 rows and a very very generous 50 paylines! That’s 5 times as many as Hacksaw Gaming’s Undead Fortune slot, for instance. Your symbols on the reels include a coconut chopped in half, a smiling snake, the jungle parrot and the monkey’s favourite, a big old banana. Your lower value symbols are made up of the usual playing cards; 10, J, Q, K and A – but this time they’re covered in jungle vines.
The Mad Monkey Wild
The Monkey symbol is the Wild in this slot. And a handy little chap he is too. Basically, the Monkey symbol will only land on on reels 2, 3 and 4 but when he does, this awesome ape will double your wins thanks to a multiplier.
The cheeky monkey can also become stacked (where the wilds can appear above one another) and will triple the prize value of any winning combinations if he lands like that.
Scatter and Super Stack Free Spins:
The Scatters in Mad Mad Monkey slot are the Mad Mad Monkey logo symbols. If you manage to find 3x or more of these bad boys anywhere on the reels, you’ll set off the game’s Free Spins Feature. Here you’ll be you given 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier on top of it.
There’s also a Banana Wild symbol that will come into play during this round. The tasty tropical fruit will become stacked upon all reels increasing your chances of more winning combos.
If you get 3x or more of the Scatter symbols during the bonus round you will re-trigger the Free Spins, taking your total up to 20! Mad mad monkey indeed!
Feeling lucky Wombat fans? Well, a trip into the jungle can sometimes do that to you… You can gamble any win after your round by clicking on the Hearts/Clubs button below the reels. You’ll double or quadruple your win by guessing the colour or suit of the face-down card. But beware! A wrong guess will lose you the whole lot.
Mad Mad Monkey pays out plenty some decent wins in the base game, but it’s the Free Spins round that’s the real money spinner with its multiplier and the stacked Banana Wilds. Overall, it’s a decent game that we will pay again – but we do recommend you play with the sound turned off. All the chimping around will drive you as mad as that monkey…
Wombat score: 4/5
