Funky Monkey Slots - RTG
ABOUT FUNKY MONKEY SLOTS
Funky Monkey is a colourful video slot from Realtime Gaming that first appeared in January 2008. The five reel twenty payline game has a number of interesting symbols populating the reels such as funky monkey himself, monkey playing keyboards, monkey playing bongo drums, card, golden record and guitar-shaped banana, in addition to six playing cards Ace through Nine.
While the graphics are a bit outdated, you will enjoy nice guitar riffs playing each time you receive a winning combination. The overall experience is further improved by the presence of quite a few special features that can land you some very good payouts. And seeing as how the progressive jackpot can strike at any time, Funky Monkey seems to offer a very good value for money.
HOW TO PLAY FUNKY MONKEY
Just like other RTG titles, Funky Monkey supports a wide array of coin values, ranging from $0.01 to $5, so there was no need to introduce additional coins per line. Maximum number of lines can be decreased, but you would definitely be better off activating all 20 paylines and lowering your coin size accordingly.
Use up and down arrows within bet and lines to make your selections before pressing spin or autoplay to start the game. Funky Monkey is Wild and it substitutes for all game symbols apart from Banana Scatters and 'Funky' and 'Monkey' logos. This particular symbol can only be positioned on reels 1, 3 and 5.
We have already mentioned that the game excels in this department and it is time to back up that claim. While Wild substitutes are likely to come in handy, it is the Scatter Pays and Funky Monkey bonus game, awarding up to 25 free games at up to x10 multiplier, that should prove highly rewarding.
Funky Monkey Bonus is activated when 'Funky' and 'Monkey' symbols occur anywhere on reel 1 and 5 respectively at the same time. You then get to select a monkey to play a funky tune and depending on the applause you will receive up to 25 free games. Each 'Funky' or 'Monkey' appearing during the feature increase multiplier by x1 with maximum multiplier standing at x10.
A banana depicted as a guitar represents the Scatter symbol that has a slightly different role than expected. This is one of just a handful of video slots where Scatter is not used to trigger a bonus round, but it does award Scatter Pays regardless of its position, with two, three, four and five of these paying out 1x, 3x, 20x and 100x total bet respectively.
Funky Monkey is equipped with a progressive jackpot that is awarded completely at random, hence the Random Jackpot title. However, the more you wager the bigger the chance of landing the top prize, with up to 1.5% of return to player going towards the jackpot fund. Maximum coin jackpot during base play is 2,000 credits and this amount is paid out when five keyboard-playing monkey symbols are positioned on any active payline.
