Powered by NextGen Gaming, Mad Mad Monkey features five reels and fifty paylines themed on jungle life with a slightly insane and odd monkey as the principal character. It is a pretty colourful and happy theme with icons including the high card symbols of snakes, bananas, peanuts, parrots and coconuts.
Mad Mad Monkey resides in a tropical jungle, and his friends are always playing tricks on him by hiding his favourite fruits - but that’s excellent news for players because the Mad Mad Monkey will pay out loads of mad prizes to anybody who can help him locate them.
How to play Mad Mad Monkey
Before players enter the crazy jungle with this eccentric monkey, they should adjust their bets.
The first set of “+/-” starting from left to right, is used to determine the number of lines players wish to play.
Next, to them, there is a second set of “+/-” buttons that are used to set the coins size ranges.
“Spin” button is used to turn the reels.
“Autoplay” can be used to set the reels in motion without stopping for a determinate number of times.
“Gamble” launches the gamble feature.
Mad Mad Monkey lacks in the unique features and icons department; however, if players give it an opportunity, it will not disappoint with its exciting gameplay. The icons involve a Scatter, a Wild, a Super Stack free game and a Gamble feature.
The Wild icon Mad Mad Monkey is the monkey himself. It can replace for any other icon except the scatter symbol. If this icon appears on the second, third or fourth reels it will become stacked, and the wins will be doubled. The Mad Money symbol stack can bring players insane prizes.
As mentioned, the Mad Mad Monkey game logo is the game’s Scatter. If players land three or more of the scatters anywhere on the reels, they will activate the Super Stack free games round. Once the free games are activated, players will get ten Free Spins, and all potential winning combinations they hit will be tripled. If players land another three scatters, they will win an additional ten Free Spins. Furthermore, the banana icon can also become a stacked icon on the reels during this round.
The Gamble round can be triggered whenever players land a winning combination. It can be activated by pressing the “Gamble” button. Here players stand to double or quadruple their winnings. If they correctly guess the colour of the card, they will increase the winnings, and if they correctly guess the suit, their winnings will be quadrupled! If players make a wrong guess, they will forfeit everything, and they will be taken back to the main game. Players are limited to five correct picks.
Mad Mad Monkey provides plenty of smaller wins in the original game; however, the more significant amounts will be won in the free spins round. If players get the monkey icon forming part of a few free spins wins, the x6 multiplier can seriously boost their winnings to a new level.
