Before our luck wears off, let’s quickly get through the basics. More Monkeys slot has a 5 X 4 reel layout with a staggering 1024 ways to win. More Monkeys is a medium variance slot which means payouts will be somewhat consistent throughout gameplay. The wager range for this game would be from a mere 60p all the way to a respectable £75 per spin.
In line with the Asian theme of this game, you will come across winning combinations made from symbols of Tigers, Pandas and Koi fishes. Monkey symbols will act as Wilds and bonus symbols, and naturally will pay more than the others.

There are three main features in More Monkeys slot game. First up, this game is packed with tonnes of free spins. These free spins are triggered whenever you get bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. But hold on, there’s more… Before you start enjoying the free spins that you have been just rewarded, More Monkeys slot will let you choose between three additional mini features for your free spins. You can choose between having 8 extra free spins, an additional 8 stacked wilds on the reels or win multipliers of up to 8X.
You may have noticed that all the mini features have the number 8 in it; that’s simply because 8 means money in Chinese! That’s a pretty cool touch we have to admit.
The second main feature that this game features is a bonus mini game called Stellar Jackpots. This game will be triggered randomly, and in this game you will be travelling alongside Monkey King through space. You mission in this game would be to destroy as many mineral rocks as you can (you will be rewarded for this) and level up.
Initially, you will start the mission with 3 lives and jackpots are divided into three levels – Mini, Minor and Major. Having played this mini game a couple of times now, we feel that the difficulty of this game is a little too high as we usually lose all our 3 lives before the game gets interesting.
The last feature is called the Monkey King Wilds. As the name suggests, the Monkey King Wild will substitute all the other symbols in the game to complete all possible winning combinations. These Wilds will only appear on reels 2 and 4, and unfortunately will not substitute bonus symbols.

We are more than pleased to report that More Monkey’s gameplay is as smooth as it can be. From playing this game for a good 45 minutes, we slowly got used to theme and started appreciating it more as we played. In all honesty, we found the theme and the storyline of the game a tad too complicated; unless you already knew the story of the Monkey King, Sun WuKong.
Besides that, the delicate touches of some Asian elements and graphic designs were totally on point. The soundtrack that plays when you trigger a feature will kindle loads of excitement.
Whilst the gameplay and features in this game isn’t exactly unique, the storyline and the experience that More Moneys slot delivers definitely is. Never before we have seen a slot game execute the historical Asian theme as beautifully as this.
This slot successfully tells the story of the rebellious Monkey King who is imprisoned in the mountains by the Buddha with the stunning backdrop of the Himalayas and enclosed temples. The rebel side of the characters are also portrayed with some sinister sounding music.
Our experience playing this game is pretty mixed. While we know that More Monkeys is a fun and exciting game, you would have to play it for at least 10-15 minutes before you start appreciating its storyline and its features.
Having said that, this game may not suit players who just want to play casually or for fun. One thing for sure, you will definitely enjoy the amazing theme of Monkey King using Kung-Fu to kick some ass!
