Fans of Australian online slots developer, Ainsworth, who are in the mood for a simple light-hearted slot, may be interested to try Jungle Monkeys. Jungle Monkeys is a five-reel video slot with a massive 100 paylines.
The theme of the Jungle Monkeys slot is – you guessed it – monkeys at play in a tropical jungle, although the background of the reels looks more like a swamp than a jungle. The Jungle Monkeys reels themselves are framed by a simple grid of wood and vines.
Symbols that feature in the Jungle Monkeys slot include bananas, mangos, coconuts, and parrots, among others. The lower-value symbols in the Jungle Monkeys slot are represented by the usual high-ranking playing card symbols – 9, 10, J, K, Q, A.
Coins, Paylines and Jackpots
The most directly valuable symbol in the Jungle Monkeys slot is the mango as it pays out the 100-coin Jungle Monkeys jackpot for five of a kind on an active payline.
Players who wager on all 100 lines enjoy the greatest odds of landing this and other smaller Jungle Monkeys wins. However, if this sounds a little rich for your betting blood, you can opt to only activate a few of the paylines.
Furthermore, although the number of coins you can wager per line is restricted to one, you can adjust the coin value in the Jungle Monkeys slot. The number of credits allocated to each Jungle Monkeys coin may range from 1.00 credits to 75 credits.
These Monkeys are Wild
Rather fittingly, the wild symbol in the Jungle Monkeys slot is a monkey. As such, the monkey has the ability to stand in for any other standard symbol to assist in creating winning payline combinations.
So landing this wild symbol in the Jungle Monkeys slot can greatly improve players’ odds of raking in some wins. The overall RTP is a respectable 94.14%, which makes frequent smaller payouts fairly likely.
Note that the monkey only appears on reels 3, 4 and 5 in the base game. It also becomes a stacked wild during free spins, which further ups the odds of a Jungle Monkeys win.
Barrels of Free Spins
In addition to the monkey wild, there is another special symbol in the Jungle Monkeys slot – the scatter. In this popular pokies machines game, it takes the form of a large barrel. This barrel is of great potential value because landing three or more of them anywhere on the reels will unlock the only Jungle Monkeys bonus feature – free spins.
A different number of free spins is awarded depending on the number of barrel scatters landed. Three, four and five Jungle Monkeys scatters pay out eight, 12 and 20 free spins, respectively. What’s more, each is also allocated a multiplier – 2x, 10x and 100x for three, four and five scatters respectively.
In addition, during the Jungle Monkeys free spins feature, the monkey wild appears stacked on reels 1, 3 and five.
If Jungle Monkeys players are lucky enough to land three or more additional scatters during this feature, more free spins will be allocated up to a maximum of 25 in total.
