Provider of market-leading online and mobile casino titles, Yggdrasil Gaming, has just launched its latest slot game, Monkey King. A monkey named, Sun Wukong, takes the stage as the slot’s main character, switching things up from the classic lion king, to a monkey. It is themed after a 16th-century Chinese novel, titled, Journey to the West. It features 5 reels, and pays all ways.
Players who launch the game will immediately see a reel set designed to look like an elaborate temple, with a beautiful, blue sky and mountain-top homes making up the background. Impressive 3D animations make up the game, and it offers plenty of opportunities to win.
There are two different kinds of wilds. The first will appear only on the middle reel, and will show up with a ‘3’ across the front, demonstrating the amount of spins that it will remain in place. A sticky wild can also appear, which can be triggered by Sun Wukong, and may turn other icons into sticky wilds as well.
It is also equipped with three free spin modes, which can award up to 1,000 coins. On average, the game pays out every 11 spins.
According to Yggdrasil Gaming’s CEO, Frederik Elmqvist, “Our new game Monkey King is based on an enduring legend in Chinese folklore and is one of our most feature-packed games ever. We add something new and unique to all of our slots, and this time our players have a chance to win big following a visit from the Monkey King.”
Elmqvist added, “The game looks absolutely fantastic and is set to become one of the biggest games of the year,” he added. “We are excited to see it played across the many operators who have turned to Yggdrasil for the best slots content in the industry.”
