Funky Monkey Online Video Slot
Funky Monkey is a popular 5 reel 20 payline online video slot game produced by Real Time Gaming (RTG). The theme of the game is a bit of a strange mix between a monkey theme and a 70’s music theme. The result is a bunch of afro-styled monkeys playing music and jamming to the disco beat. The backdrop to the slot game is a simple blue screen with music note wallpaper. The cartoon like graphics and lively bongo music give the game a humorous feel in a slot game that doesn’t really take itself too seriously.
5 Reel Music Themed Slot
The slot machine in Funky Monkey is based on the standard RTG setup of 5 spinning reels with 20 paylines in which players can form winning combinations. On the reels, players will find images that all relate to music or monkeys playing music. The highest paying symbols of the game include a monkey with an afro in a white suit, a monkey playing bongo drums, a yellow Jeep convertible, and a framed gold record. For the lower paying symbols, RTG have used the standard set of high card symbols that have been styled to blend into the theme of the game.
Mr Funky Monkey Wild Symbol
In addition to the standard slot setup, the Funky Monkey slot also includes a number of bonus features in the form of a wild symbol, scatter symbols and a free spin round. The wild symbol in this game is Funky Monkey himself who only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. The wild symbol can be used to substitute for any of the other standard reel symbols in order to form a winning combination. The only symbols that the wild symbol cannot substitute for are the bonus symbols and the scatter banana symbol.
Banana Scatter Multipliers
The banana symbol in the Funky Monkey slot game acts as the scatter symbol and can pay out in any position on the reels. The scatter symbol plays the role of a multiplier with each symbol adding a bet multiplier to any line win. Players who are lucky enough to get all 5 scatter symbols across the reels will up to a 100x bet multiplier. The bonus feature in this game is activated by the two bonus symbols, these being the word funky and the word monkey.
Free Spins with Multipliers
In Funky Monkey, when the word funky appears on reel one and the word monkey appears on reel five on an active payline, the free spin feature will be activated. Once triggered, players are taken to a second screen where they must pick a monkey to play a tune. When the monkey begins to play, the monkey meter will rise according to the applause level. The higher the applause level, the more free spins are awarded, up to a maximum of 25 free spins. During the free spin bonus round, anytime the word funky or the word monkey appears, a 1x bet multiplier is added to any line win. The number of bet multipliers can reach a total of 10x but the free spin feature cannot be re-triggered.
