Inspired by the iconic Eastern image of the three monkeys, each covering his eyes, his ears or his mouth to “see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil”, the Mystic Monkeys slot promises a lot of fun for first-time players.
The five-reel, 50-payline slot has a playful cartoony feel with an assortment of weird and wonderful characters. These include each of the three monkeys that form the Mystic Monkeys slot trio, some tropical fruit, a mysterious symbol, and a statue of the Buddha, as well as the standard high-ranking playing card symbols.
The Mystic Monkeys slot reels are set in an ornate wooden frame against the backdrop of what appears to be a dense tropical rain forest. Included in the Mystic Monkeys slot are wild and scatter symbols, a bonus feature, and free spins.
The reason why the Mystic Monkeys slot is ideal for inexperienced players is that they can play it without taking much risk. Betting starts at just 0.01 credits per line and the 50 paylines are adjustable so players can keep their wagers to 0.01 credits per spin by wagering on only one line.
More experienced or adventurous players may wager up to 2.00 credits per line, for a max bet of 100.00 credits per spin if all paylines are activated. Activating all 50 paylines gives players the best possible chance of landing the Mystic Monkeys slot jackpot of 750 coins, which can total 7500 credits if the max bet is in play.
In addition, the average RTP on the Mystic Monkeys real money online pokies game is a very generous 97%, which greatly ups players’ odds of winning and doing so regularly. The low volatility level of the Mystic Monkeys slot further adds to the appeal of this game to newcomers to online gaming.
While experienced players will enjoy the Mystic Monkeys slot too, they may eventually want to go in search of something else with higher stakes and more bonus features.
A cryptic symbol represents the scatter in the Mystic Monkeys slot. Players will want to land three or more scatter symbols in the Mystic Monkeys slot because this will unlock the game’s free spins feature. The number of free spins unlocked will depend on the number of scatters landed – five, eight and 12 free spins for three, four and five scatters, respectively.
At the beginning of the Mystic Monkeys slot free spins round, players will have two select one of the three monkeys. Whichever monkey is selected will become a sticky wild symbol during free spins, remaining in place for the duration of the bonus round.
Note that free spins cannot be retriggered in the Mystic Monkeys slot.
Another icon of Eastern philosophy and religion is the Buddha, so it makes sense that Genesis has included it in the Mystic Monkeys slot. The Mystic Monkeys slot wild can stand in for any other symbol – with the exception of scatters – to complete winning combinations.
Additionally, the Mystic Monkeys slot wild appears as a sticky wild during free spins, which are explained next.
