Monkey King is a brand new video slot based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West. Find out about the design and special features here.
XIN Gaming has kicked off May by unveiling its brand new Monkey King slot, which is now available at participating casino sites. In terms of theme, players will appreciate this video slot if they enjoy gaming content with Asian themes.
Journey to the West
To create the game, XIN Gaming has drawn literary inspiration from Journey to the West, a Chinese novel beloved by millions. Within that tale, there is a character called the Monkey King, who serves as the integral focus for this new slot.
In transitioning from page to digital screen, XIN Gaming has designed Monkey King as a five-reel slot with three rows. For general wagering, players will get to win across the 25 paylines found in the base gaming experience.
Beyond the standard gameplay, players can depend on the wild symbols to lend help by substituting for core symbols that are missing. Players will also have progressive bonus spins and four mini features.
XIN Gaming has sought inspiration from retro video game Street Fighter by challenging players to battle with enemies to earn victory bonuses. During this portion of the game, players can also increase multipliers to boost the value of their prize.
Asian Growth Strategy
The launch of Monkey King is part of XIN Gaming’s wider strategy of trying to become the leading casino software provider in Asia. By creating a slot based on a classic like Journey to the West, the provider is seeking to connect with players by making games that connect with their heritage.
Thus far, XIN Gaming has created and released more than a dozen video slots with a visual Asian style, with games also containing deeper elements. In recapping the provider’s previous releases, these include Dragon’s Pearl, Lucky 8, Chinese New Year, Red Panda, and Moon Festival. Latest release Monkey King is now available at XIN Gaming casinos.
