Pragmatic Play Unleashes the Monkey WarriorPublished July 17, 2019 by Elana K
Monkey Warrior slot from Pragmatic Play is based on a 16th-century Chinese novel that follows Sun Wukong, a monkey warrior who possesses magical powers. The reels are set in a mystical garden and the soundtrack features beautiful, Asian-style strumming.
Pragmatic Play’s newest slot, Monkey Warrior, is an Asian-themed slot with 243 ways to win, wilds, respins, and free spins. The graphics are definitely interesting, with an Asian-looking monkey taking center stage - but the real stars of the slot are the 4 cash prizes that can be won in the Money Respin feature.
Monkey Warrior is based on a 16th-century Chinese novel, Journey to the West, which follows Sun Wukong, a monkey warrior who possesses magical powers and great strength. The reels are set in a lovely, mystical garden, and the soundtrack features beautiful, Asian-style strumming.
The slot is medium variance with an RTP of 96.5%. Bets range between $.25 and $125 per spin and the slot is playable on all devices.
Symbols include A, K, Q, a potion bottle full of green liquid, a scroll, and three characters from the story. The holy monk is the highest-paying, rewarding 20x your stake when 5 land across a payline. There’s also a Monkey Warrior wild, an upside down peach, and a bonus scatter.
When 6 peach symbols land simultaneously, the Money Respin feature is triggered. During this feature, you start with 5 respins; there are only peaches, which lock into place, and empty positions. Each peach symbol has on it a cash value or mini, minor, or grand jackpot - this means you can win 30, 50, 100, or 200x your stake, respectively. When you run out of respins or when all 15 positions are filled by a peach, the round is over and all cash values are added together to reach your total win. If you fill all 15 positions, your reward gets a 2x multiplier.
When 3 bonus symbols land on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin, the Free Spins round is triggered, awarding you 8 free spins. All the lower paying symbols are removed from the reels in this round, as are the wilds - the good news is that this round can be retriggered unlimitedly.
Pragmatic Play took a good shot at creating a unique twist on an Asian theme; while it’s not overly original, the 2 special features and 4 cash prizes provide enough of an incentive to keep on playing. The max win of 6080x your stake is also reason enough to give it a try at Pragmatic Play online casinos.
