MonkeyPop Slot Review – AvatarUX
It has been a month now since my last AvatarUX slot review; this was for the game titled ‘Lollipop’, which has a max win capped at 13,000x and a Free Spins feature with an increasing reel set. Today we are learning all about ‘MonkeyPop’, which is available to play now!
This slot uses an Asian Inspired theme for the game’s visual aspects. With a beautiful art design which is honestly mesmerising to look at and a vibrant water colour scheme. The game background looks to be set on a tall mountain in chilly winter weather. With trees covered in snow and a mountain top in the distance. Low paying symbols are represented by the typical 10 – A. Premium symbols are represented by 5 different Monkey character dressed up.
MonkeyPop has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows; this includes 486 – 33,614 set pay lines. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 96.33% and a max win capped at 10,744x. You can bet from £0.20 to £100.
MonkeyPop Pay Table & Symbols
There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 6 premium symbols; these are represented by 5 monkey characters with different vibrant backgrounds. In addition to these regular symbols is a wild symbol and bonus symbol. The highest paying symbol is the yellow background monkey premium, which pays 2.5x for 5 across a pay line. The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the bonus symbol.
Each winning symbol pops and is replaced by 2 symbols increasing the reel height. This is repeated as long as there are more wins occurring. Reels can expand up to 6 symbols high in the base game and 7 during Free Spins.
When all reels are unlocked during base game spins, a random number of low paying symbols are removed from the reel set. Awarding 2 Free Spins, with an unlocked multiplier starting from 1x, 2x or 3x. An additional 1x or 2x is added to the multiplier on each win.
Landing 3 or more bonus symbols during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. Before spins begin a ‘Reward Reel’ screen is displayed. 4 rewards will be randomly drawn. Rewards are;
- Free Spins – 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
- Starting Ways – 486+, 2,048+ and 6250+.
- Starting Multiplier – 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x.
- Multiplier Growth – +1x, +2x, +3x, +4x or +5x.
During spins, the progress of unlocking the reels during Free Spins do not fully reset between spins. It is only reset down to the shortest reel height. Also, bonus symbols are collected. When 3 are collected a monkey premium visible on the counter is upgraded to a Gilded version which multiplies its value by 5x or 10x. This symbol will remain upgraded to a Gilded version for the duration of this feature. After this upgrade, the bonus counter resets to 0, and another symbol is displayed to start the collection again.
When all reels are unlocked during Free Spins. 2 additional Free Spins are added to the counter, and a random number of low paying symbols are removed for the remaining spins. There are 3 bonus buy options which can be seen below.
Overall, I think this slot is such a detailed release by the studio and includes a volatile Free Spins feature. This includes a max win capped at 10,744x and a Free Spins feature with increasing multipliers & reel height. Be sure to try out the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
