Money Mad Monkey is a video slots game by Microgaming, available both online and in land-based casinos. The game offers players five reels and twenty pay lines to play on, and it also features various wilds, scatters, and bonus rounds.
The Money Mad Monkey Theme
The theme of the Money Mad Monkey video slots game is based on a monkey exploring the urban jungle. The background image of the game reveals a monkey on the skyscrapers of a big city at night-time. The game offers high quality graphics, various sound effects, and animation sequences to aid the theme and create a light-hearted game. Some of the symbols used include the Money Mad Monkey logo, piles of cash, barrels, and various standard poker value playing cards.
The Money Mad Monkey Wilds
The Money Mad Monkey wild symbol is represented by the banana. The banana wild symbol in the Money Mad Monkey slots game can substitute any of the other symbols, except for the three bonus symbols, and thereby help players complete winning pay lines and achieve the winning combinations with the highest possible payouts. Landing numerous matching banana wild symbols on any active pay line will also pay out a winning combination.
The Barrel Pick Bonus Feature
The barrel pick bonus feature is the Money Mad Monkey scatter bonus. It is triggered when players land three or more of the barrel scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. In the barrel pick bonus feature, which operates as a pick’em feature, a barrel will first be shaken and then players will be able to pick one of the barrels to reveal a prize.
The Trail Climb Bonus Feature
If players land three, four, or five of the monkey climb symbols after a Money Mad Monkey spin, this will launch the Trail Climb bonus game. In this feature, players will have to spin in order to move the game’s monkey up a ladder, which will reveal various cash prizes as he climbs.
The Free Spins Bonus Feature
The free spins bonus feature in Money Mad Monkey is triggered when players land matching pile of cash symbols on the first, third, and fifth reels. Once the free spins bonus feature has been launched, players will be able to pick one of three piles of cash to reveal a certain number of free spins with an attached multiplier. This may be five free spins with an eight time multiplier, ten free spins with a four time multiplier, or, lastly, twenty free spins with a two time multiplier. The free spins bonus feature cannot be retriggered and none of the other bonus features can be activated during the free spins round. The bets played during the free spins bonus feature will be the same as in the last base game spin that first launched the free spins feature. Once the free spins have been used up and the feature comes to an end, all wins will be added to the total wins and players will be returned to the base game.
