A game jam-packed full of wild features, and a kung fun monkey, this Yggdrasil mobile slot is worth a second look.
Yggdrasil have to be one of our favourite up and coming software providers, and Legend of the Golden Monkey slot game is a great place to start your journey with them.
For one, it’s stunning. There’s lots of casino games based around the Journey To The West book (including the Journey To the West slot machine), but this Golden Monkey captures the imagination.
For one, you don’t need to know the story, because it only has one character: the Monkey King. He’s surrounded by beautiful mystical items and is only concerned with one thing; giving you a wild time.
Which don’t act as wilds normally do.
Namely because one stays on screen for as long as it can be used to create a win (like in one of the seasons in the Seasons slot game) and the other stay on screen for up to 5 spins.
Trust us when we say that this Legend of The Golden Monkey slot online uses these wilds to good effect.
Especially when, on any random spin, that handsome ape will fly on screen and kung fu whip anything from a win, to extra wild symbols, to the treasure chest bonus.
You’ve got to love those beautiful Yggdrasil Gaming slot animations.
Between those wilds, kung fu kicks, and random cash bonus treasure chests, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that this Golden Monkey Legend slot has 3 free spin games to pick from.
Our favourite has to be the feature where you get a sticky wild on each spin, up to 6 spins, though the stacked wild free spin bonus game is also surprisingly rewarding.
Sometimes, you’ll get this Legend of the Golden Monkey slot feature every 50 spins, other times you’ll be waiting 200 to 300 spins with nothing but wilds and flying monkeys to entertain you.
Thank-god then, that these are very entertaining indeed, and whilst it doesn’t have the big wins of the Vikings Go Berzerk mobile game, it has a simple complexity that is hard to beat.

Wins All Ways: Symbols will pay from left to right, as long as they are adjacent to each other, not on any payline.
Sticky Wilds: The golden monkey head is the sticky wild and appears on reels 2 and 4. It will basically stay on screen for as long as you keep getting winning paylines.
Count Down Wild: A golden ornate wild symbol, with a number in the middle from 3 to 5, can appear on reel 3. These will stay on screen for the number of spins shown in the middle of the symbol.
Treasure Chest Symbol: A feature first seen in the slot Vikings Go Wild by Yggdrasil, this symbol only appears on reel 5. When it lands you are awarded anything from 40, to 1,000 coins, or (far more rare) a free spin trigger.
The Golden Monkey Slot Feature: The main feature of the base game, here the titular character chow up on screen after any spin, and will chance one symbol on screen to your advantage.
That could be creating a win, giving you a wild, or triggering the treasure chest symbol.
Scatters and Free Spins: You trigger the free spins by getting 3 or more scatters on screen, or by finding it during the treasure chest symbol.
You'll then get to pick between 3 different free spin Golden Monkey bonus games:
All are fun, but the incremental wilds are our favourite; though the most dangerous.
Another hit for Yggdrasil slots for mobile and online casinos.
With stunning artwork, smooth animations, and some cracking features, it's hard not to love this Legend of the Golden Monkey machine, even if the free spins are hard to find.
In fact, it shares in DNA a fair amount in common with the Legend of The White Snake Lady phone game - and not just because they are both set in the far east.
Neither relies on free spins for big thrills, have symbols that pay when adjacent to each other, and both concentrate on a specific features (multiple wilds in the case of this monkey asian slot) to keep things interesting.
