Monkey Mayhem, the Merkur release, will allow players to get a little crazy, as it takes them to the middle of the jungle in a tree house and adds several other images to the reels which suggest that same connection.
This game will allow for 10 lines to form on 5x3 reels. The player will discover that he’s trying for top paying combinations of $600 per line, and that as features he gets wild symbols and a random Monkey Barrel. It might not seem like much, but the game claims to offer a 96.03% RTP, so expect a low volatility experience from it.
Betting and Prizes
Click on the Max button to get the highest bet of $20 directly, or select the bet value to open a menu and go with one of the listed amounts, between $0.10 and $20. You have wagers of $0.01 to $2 for each active line in the game.
The highest potential that the game seems to have is $6,000 for a single round, offered when you have a screen filled with top-paying symbols (Monkeys and Tree House icons). Since Merkur is claiming an RTP of 96.03% for this game, the volatility is going to be on the low side for it, since the prizes are not very high.
Monkey Mayhem Slot Features
There may be mayhem in the game, but it’s not going to come through a huge number of complex features, on the contrary. You’re getting a wild feature that triggers expanding wilds, plus a wild symbol, and that’s it.
First, you have the Monkey Wild, a symbol that will be included in various other combinations most of the time. As a substitute, it will give you a lot of wins in time, but it can also be used like any other symbol to create its own combination. A prize of $600 could be yours at that point. As for the substitution ability, there are no limits for it, the symbol can be a replacement for any other icon in the game.
Second, there will sometimes be a Monkey Barrel symbol on the reels. This bonus symbol can appear anywhere, and when it does it will explode and will place wild symbols on the neighboring positions (horizontal and vertical neighbors only, not diagonal).
The list of the game’s features stops there, so you shouldn’t expect too much variety from Monkey Mayhem. On the other hand, there are only 11 symbols in total in this game, 9 of which are regulars, so forming combinations shouldn’t be as difficult as in other slots.
Theme & Design
The monkey theme will come packed in a neat jungle inspired design, as is natural for it. You have a small monkey as the main character, with the luxurious green jungle shown in the background. Going beyond the Monkey and Monkey Barrel icons which are reserved for features, the rest of the symbols involved will vary from a Jungle Tree House, to Palm Trees, Coconut Drinks, Bananas, Gold Coins, and then to relatively boring Royals.
I think that the game’s quality is pretty good overall, and that the symbols which were used are cute. It doesn’t look like a game that stands out, but it’s pleasant enough otherwise.
Monkey Mayhem is a simple enough game, but one which can be fun, especially with its wild-related features and cute monkey graphics.
