Description and Review: Looking back over the last few NextGen slots reviews, I see we haven’t been too kind on them. In fact, ‘mediocre’ is the word I would choose.
But never let it be said we are not fair, because here they come with Mad Mad Monkey and it’s excellent. Slightly bonkers…but still excellent.
In fact, all three of the team here (that’s me – Matt, Eva and Alison) doubled our money on it.
Still reading? Thought so!
OK, so what we’ve got here is a 50 line slot machine with a jungle/Monkey theme. So you’ve got symbols like Coconuts, Bananas, Snakes and so on.
To get the best out of this game, you are really are going to have to play all 50 lines. But at a minimum line bet of 0.01, that should be affordable for everyone. The reason is that – the base game – there are stacked wild Monkey symbols on Reels 2, 3 and 4. Oh, and any win involving the Monkey symbol is doubled.
Because of the stacked wilds in the regular game, the wins are often generous and usually above your line bet. So what’s not to like?
Even more fun is the free spins round. This hit fairly often (triggered by three Mad Mad Monkey symbols) and gives 10 free spins. However, the banana symbol also becomes a stacked wild and prizes have a 3x multiplier.
Oh, incidentally, the bonus round can be retriggered.
Like most NextGen slots, Mad Mad Monkey has a gamble option. You can even choose to gamble your wins from the free spins round, which most slots with this feature don’t allow.
We started betting around the 2.50 per spin mark but soon ramped it up to the maximum of 10.00 per spin.
I suspect that this is one of those slots casino management want to keep quiet about. Well, tough. It’s a winner and a must play. And now it’s a featured slot here on Slots Universe.net!
The only downside is that, unless you like hearing the sounds of gibbering monkeys for hours at a time, you might want to turn the sound down!
