Northern Lights Gaming's Monkey Bonanza is a volatile jungle animal-themed slot with 5x3 reels and 10 paylines. You will benefit from Jumbo Symbols, and the feature that resembles a streak respin includes a climactic final spin with multiplier wilds that remain in place. With four RTP configurations ranging from 96.06 percent to 86.79 percent for the German market, all but one are highly volatile, with the 94.12 percent configuration being only moderately volatile. You receive jumbo symbols on every turn of the bonus round, and you can win up to 5,000 times your wager.
The premium animal symbols award between 2.80 and 8.00 times your wager for 5 of a kind, and the 'W' Wild symbol can appear anywhere to help complete and/or enhance winnings by substituting for pay symbols. If you land three to five wilds on a single payline, they pay the same as the highest-paying monkey symbol. On the middle three reels, the Jumbo Monkey symbol can appear as 1x3, 2x3, or 3x3, which means it can completely or partially cover all three reels. This symbol can appear in both the base game and the bonus round, and in the Banana Bonanza feature we'll discuss below, you'll receive a regular-sized monkey symbol.
The Banana Bonanza feature is activated when the Jumbo Monkey symbol completely covers the three middle reels. It is a streak respins type feature that begins with three respins. In this feature, only regular-sized monkey symbols, wilds, and voids can appear, and the wilds can award up to a 5x multiplier. All of the regular pay symbols are aligned in ascending order above the grid in the so-called Banana Splat Bar, and each monkey symbol that rests eliminates the lowest remaining regular pay symbol. The feature and symbol elimination continue until you run out of respins, at which point you receive a turn with sticky multiplier wilds and any remaining pay symbols.
You can land Gold Coin symbols in both the base game and the bonus round, and their values range from 0.02 to 50 times your wager. You must land the Collect symbol on reel 5 to collect the visible coin prizes, so if you don't, these symbols serve no purpose other than to occupy prominent "reel real estate."
The Free Spins Bonus Round is activated by three scatter symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5, which awards five free spins. During the duration of the bonus round, only 3x3 colossal symbols appear on the three middle reels, which are merged together. They do not always land completely in view, so it is possible for two distinct symbols to share a 3x3 space. When the monkey symbol appears partially in view, the Banana Bonanza feature will be activated.
