Monkey Business Deluxe is the new version for the well-known classic slot machine, a popular game in its day, and one that was in need for a refresh to keep up with our times. Blueprint Gaming is the one that created this slot machine, which features jungle themed graphics and a Jackpot King progressive.
The standard mix of 5x3 reels and 20 active lines has been used for this slot, and in exchange for playing it you can trigger one of its progressive jackpots or a fixed payout of up to 5,000 coins ($12,500). When it comes to major features which are included, the list has on it the wild symbol, free spins, scatters and multipliers, not a bad offer all things considered.
Betting and Prizes
You may vary the amount that is going to be wagered per active line, but you will need all 20 lines to be covered. Since the line bet starts from $0.01 and can reach a maximum of $2.50, the total bet range that you can select from will be $0.20 to $50.
Payout wise, we’re being promised rewards which can reach a top value of 5,000 coins, or as much as $12,500 if you have the right wager that round. It’s not a bad payout for a winning combo, plus the game also has the Jackpot King option, with three progressive jackpots of different values which can be triggered.
Monkey Business Deluxe Slot Features
We’re not seeing anything unique in the feature section, but that doesn’t make the slot a boring choice.
For starters, you get the wild symbols inside, and they may be used to improve the number of winning combinations in the long run. They can be useful even if you get only one, provided that it lands in the right spot. They may be helpful next to some regular symbols, but the scatters can’t count on their help to get a feature.
Speaking of features, the one with free spins will require the presence of 3 to 5 Bonus symbols in the game. 10 free spins are triggered if you get those icons, even if their positions are on different lines (they land stacked and they may trigger the feature even from a single reel). The extra feature which we’re promised in the free spins will revolve around a Monkey Multiplier, which can appear on reel 3 and which doubles the payouts when it lands there. Of course, this applies to your regular wins, not to any progressive jackpots which may be triggered.
As you can see, there is nothing truly out of the ordinary, if you look at the game’s features, but you do get bigger potential once you reach the free spins.
Theme & Design
The old Monkey Business has been used as inspiration for the Deluxe version, but while it’s a modern game, we don’t see the updated graphics that we’d expect. The story remains the same one, revolving around monkeys and other jungle animals. You see jungle explorers, monkeys, lions, elephants and snakes as its major symbols, while basic Royals are the ones appearing in the low paying positions. It’s not an impressive design by any means, but it’s serviceable.
Monkey Business Deluxe is a decent game to be playing, but considering the other slots we have access to, it’s nothing impressive.
