Welcome to the jungle where the Monkey’s Gold XPays slot has some very strange rules, but you’ll soon be praying to the Monkey gods for some extra special spins.
Now we could go into the slot theme of this game, but to be honest, that’s the least strange thing and we have a lot to cover in this Monkey’s Gold XPays mobile slot game. So needless to say, it sounds great, it looks great, and it has a fantastic “exotic lost civilization” vibe.
Now the next thing you’ll notice when you look at the paytable is that the symbols are worth a singular value and none of them are your bet. So, for example, the higher paid symbol is only worth 0.60 for your 1 bet.
The reason for this is Xpays. When you get 3 of the symbols landing from left to right anywhere on the reels, each of those symbols will be worth it’s value – so in the case above 1.80 in cash. Doesn’t sound like much? We haven’t told you the best bit.
Once you get that first win, those symbols will stay sticky on screen, drop to the bottom of the screen in a tumble and then more symbols fall from above for no additional cost.
If you get more winning symbols, those also stay sticky and they don’t all have to be the same symbol. That’s how you can capture a whole screen full of symbols – which in a 6×6 grid, gives you 12 symbols.
Going back to the original amount, that’s still only 7.20 in cash. So how do you get the promised top win of 12,683x your bet in this Monkey’s Gold slot? We haven’t mentioned the multipliers yet, have we?
You get colossal symbols which can come with a multiplier ranging from 4x to 500x the total bet amount, and they fall often, even if they don’t all land for a win.
You didn’t think that was all did you? We promised surprises, and this Monkey’s Gold video slot has plenty. Namely because whenever you fill a row of symbols using the avalanching sticky wins mechanics, you upgrade all the symbols to the next one on the paytable.
And then there’s the wild symbol that helps create multiple wins, especially filling up spaces under those colossal symbols. But the thing that will have you pay big is the increasing multipliers in the Monkey’s Gold slot free spin bonus.
In the free spins, every time you fill a row of symbols, the multiplier increases. It doesn’t reset on the next spin, meaning if you get just to 8x or 10x multiplier, you can easily see wins of over 50 times your bet.
The RTP is slightly lower on this No Limit City machine, set at 96.05%, so getting much more than around 100x your bet will be difficult. If you do get a big win, you may want to start looking at other high variance slots such as Bonanza slot or the Jammin Jars review.

What is XPays?: You need at least 3 of the same symbol that connects on reel 1 to reel 3. All winning symbols will remain on the reels and any additional paying symbol will stick fall down. The new symbols will drop from above and give you another set of symbols. If you find more winning symbols those remain sticky and you get another fall of new symbols.
Wild: The w is the wild symbols and can replace any other symbol to create a win. It cannot replace the scatter bonus symbols.
Colossal Symbols: You can get 2x2 and 3x3 symbol land on any free drop after an XPays. The colossal symbols will hold multiplier ranging from 4x to x500. If the colossal symbols leave an empty position underneath itself, a wild symbol will fill those empty spaces.
Symbol Multiplier: Any symbol with a multiplier on it gets counted as multiple symbols, not just as one single symbol. Wild symbols inherit any active symbol multiplier when substituted.
Symbol Upgrade: Whenever a full row is filled up with winning symbols, the collected symbol will be upgraded to a higher paying symbol. The highest paying symbol will be upgraded with an added multiplier.
Monkey's Gold Free Spins: Triggered by 3 or more bonus symbols, you'll get 10 spins (any additional trigger bonus symbols will award you with +3 extra spins). A sticky vine multiplier will be added to the ordinary XPAys for even greater wins. A bonus symbols during the free spins give you +1 extra spins.
The sticky vine multiplier increase by x1, x2 or x3 multiplier every time you get a full row of symbols and stays there for the whole of the free spins.
Yet again, what lets down this No Limit City game is the RTP of 96.05%. If only they had added just an extra 1% it would have made this into a 5-star slot review.
However, that doesn't take away from the fact that you can win up to 12,683x your bet and there are some great sticky win avalanches, peppered full of multipliers.
Whether it's the sticky multipliers in the free spins or up to 500x multipliers with colossal symbols. All in all, an almost perfect game, though if you want sticky avalanching reels you should also try out Contact slot by Play'n GO.
Monkey's Gold XPays is a 6 reel, 6 row slot with 12 symbols where every win stays sticky and you get new symbols drop from above. You have colossal symbols, multipliers, free spins and sticky multipliers too.
