Monkey King is based on ancient Chinese mythology and on Chinese zodiac animals, which in this instance, is the Monkey God. There aren't many games with Chinese zodiac symbols as the theme of the game, so this Monkey King theme is not a common one, but, having said that, the gameplay is nothing more than a shared concept with a few other Microgaming games. Yes, it is a cloned game nonetheless.

The Monkey is the Wild symbol, paying a very low 1000x the line bet for 5 of them. Why so low I just don't know. It comes stacked on all reels, substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol, but doesn't double any wins with it. That is really disappointing indeed. Imagine getting 5 Wilds on a payline and getting paid so blardy lowly! The logo, 'Monkey King', is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays the usual 100x the total bet, and getting 3 or more of them triggers a Free Spins game, with up to 25 free spins, with up to 4x multiplier and with up to 3 Extra Wilds on the reels. When everything is stated as 'up to', then I don't like it at all, because most of the time, you'd only get the lower end of the Free Spins game, which in this case would be 12 free spins, with a 2x multiplier, and 1 Extra Wild. Count yourself as very lucky if you actually got that 25 free spins with a 4x multiplier and with 3 Extra Wilds. I never got it. The other symbols in the game pay from a very low 250x to 50x the line bet for 5 of each kind. A very low paytable.

When you have triggered the Free Spins game, a screen comes on showing 9 figures, in 3 groups of 3 each. Pick one out of the 3 in each group to reveal the number of free spins, the multiplier and then the number of Extra Wilds. The free spins number may be from 12 up to 25, the multiplier from 2x to 4x, and the Extra Wild from 1 to 3. Expect to get the 2x multiplier and 1 Extra Wild most of the time. My few plays on this game have given me up to 20 free spins, the 4x multiplier only once, and 2 Extra Wilds only once too. None of the 25 free spins or the 3 Extra Wilds so far. Well, I was expecting the 4x multiplier to pay at least a good and decent win, but it paid just as badly as most of the others with a 2x multiplier. The 20 free spins that I had gotten proved to be useless too, because most of them were non-paying useless spins. The payouts were between 6x - 41x my bet amount. Very disappointing payouts.

DISLIKED

My dislikes include the very low paytable, the Wild symbols (Monkey) that doesn't have the word 'Wild' on them, why this is missing I just cannot figure out, the Free Spins game that can take 500 to 600 spins to come, yet pay poorly each time, and never getting any good win of above 100x my bet amount during my several plays on the game. This Monkey King game was nothing more than monkey business on me!

Monkey King it is Microgaming game, which can be named as old Microgaming game, because it is obviously not their new game, and even probably already 5+ years ago was released. But I can be mistaken of course.

Game looks ok, no problem here. I do not feel anything bad when I played it, and actually even do not notice anything old in it. Game has 30 paylines.

There is nothing special during base game, but at least there are wilds on all reels. Also good to know that this wilds is stacked, so you could get a screen of wilds in this slot. Unfortunately wilds does not have any multiplier, but still, it is always good to have stacked wilds (but yes, I hate when stacked wilds on all reels, and slot have not many paylines, but nothing to do with it here).

There is possible to trigger freespins feature in this game, for this you need three or more scatters. Then you will pick freespins, multiplier, and amount of added wilds to reels. Well, best feature which I picked was 15 freespins and x 3 multiplier, but I am pretty sure it is possible to trigger even better one.

During base game I have couple of nice hits with a range of 30-100 x total bet, but not so many of course, such wins not happens often, because even a lot of wilds at slot with 30 paylines does not mean big win. During freespins I have one freespins feature which paid me more than 100 x total bet, which was from 15 freespins and x 3 multiplier. Slot is interesting, and probably has potential to hit big, but this is really very hard because stacked wilds it is of course awesome chance to win big, but damn, there is only 30 paylines. Can't say that I am willing to play this game again.

DISLIKED

Everything seems good, but come on, stacked wilds and 30 lines is just pain.

Monkey King is a 30 paylines slot riddling with what appears to be a good story for the player based on first glance. Like a movie describing itself in slot form. It also looks like originality has become top priority with Microgaming in creating this game and so far, I'm impressed with what they provided! Now we have Kung Fu Monkey (Goes to China Town) and Monkey King. Now that's a fight match worth watching! In my round of spins having bets set up to a 2 coin bets first then moving onto 3 coins, I found myself finding little to even returns, although on some occasions it provided me with a miniscule increase in some of my spins. It's seems that stacked Monkey King Wilds are definitely a requirement to have positive results!

The 3 scattered Monkey King Logos gains an entry to choose from 3 people per pick for Free spins, 3 people again for the multiplier and lastly 3 people to see how many wilds will be added to increase the length of the stacks during free spins. One per crowd! My advice is to try to avoid picking the Lady in purple for a multiplier, I seem to receive 2x most of the time from her. As random as this bonus is it gave me 18 Free spins at 2x. After completion with my 3 coin triggering bet, my hands were filled with $37.60 worth of monkey gold (cash). I wasn't expecting a lot for a lousy 2x but hey, with stacks inside they are hard at work. Next time, my multipliers will be larger and my winnings will see it's lady, get married, then have kids to multiply everything!

DISLIKED

Monkey King apparently pays very low in the base game. I was getting fatigue of finding low wins like $0.30 or even worst....$0.09 in a spin! I had to find that free spins are to make up for the lack of winnings produced in the base game. Without it, Monkey King will be one of lowest paying slots! I haven't found very good base game wins, just shards of winnings!
