Punters are set to make a trip back to the mysterious Orient in this online video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming entitled Legend of the Golden Monkey, which is a fantasy-themed game that boasts of crisp and well-drawn graphics as well as a number of bonus features.

Legend of the Golden Monkey is a five-reel slot that has three rows and an “all ways” payline structure that essentially means that wins can be formed anywhere on the reels as long as there are at least three adjacent.

Before you take part in this Kung Fu monkey, you are advised to set your bets. By clicking on "Coin Value +/-" you can set coins size which ranges from 0.01 to 5. "Max Bet" is used to set the maximum bet allowed, and "Spin" sets the reels in motion. "Autoplay" option is used to turn the reels automatically without interruption for a chosen number of times.

The Golden Monkey is a beloved character in Chinese literature, so this online slot machine would already have had a built-in fanbase, but even if you have never heard of it, the game is well worth checking out, mainly because it looks great and has a number of bonus features, including stacked wilds and free spins.

The animated backdrop of trees in speckled sunlight extends across the whole game, with the symbols spinning down translucent reels to maximize the view. It’s proven to be effective and adds to the high-quality design of this slot.

Legend of the Golden Monkey is a marvelous game and the kind of premium quality game that makes you want to keep coming back for more. The features occur regularly and this is a release that punters must definitely try. It comes with an RTP of 96.10%.


The high-value symbols include a couple of pots, a roll of parchment, a shield, a corked beaker and a tiara. Then, hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds represent the lower values.

There are two wild symbols in this game, the sticky wild and the count down wild and they are explained in more detail in the section below. They will substitute for all others except for the treasure chests and the Free Spins bonus symbols.


Special Wilds

The two wild symbols active in this game are as follows:

  • Sticky Wilds = appear only on reels two and four and remain in place for the following spin or until there are no more wins.
  • Count Down Wilds = appear only on reel three and remain in place for the following three spins.

This happens randomly and the monkey would emerge at the bottom of the screen to change one symbol into another and a potential win.

Treasure Chest

The treasure chest only appears on reel five but when it does, it would award up to 1000 coins or trigger the free spins mode. During the free spins, it would add two extra spins to your total.

Free Spins

This is triggered by landing three or more of the Free Spins scatter symbols anywhere in view and you now get the chance to select one of three free spins modes:

  • Incremental Wilds = awards six free spins with a sticky wild added to the 2nd or 4th reels on each spin.
  • Stacked Wilds = awards eight free spins with sticky wilds on reels two and four and also a stacked wild on reel three.
  • Starting Wilds = awards ten free spins with a sticky wild in the center of reel three from the beginning; sticky wilds are also active on reels two and four.
