Money Mad Monkey


Money Mad Monkey

Why would a monkey be money mad? It can hardly pop down the shops and get some bananas or perhaps pop in the local DIY shop and get some climbing frames? Well the monkey in this entertaining slot from Microgaming is a bit money mad and so will you be after getting some good wins here.

‘Money Mad Monkey’ contains five reels and a total of 20 paylines for you to win some cash on. Now you might be thinking that considering the title of this game it’d be set in the jungle. Well you’d be wrong because the backdrop to the game shows a city and a setting sun which is being watched by the monkey. Perhaps this wealthy monkey is on his holidays, you never know.

Playing the game will cost you between £0.01 and £20. Don’t feel you have to activate all the paylines as some of the bonus games can be triggered even if you play with just one payline on the go.

The symbols here are a bit basic and include a character who may well be asked to take part in an identity parade for Mario, a peeled banana, a monkey and a calculator. We also get the ten to Ace playing card symbols.

The wild symbol is always important in any slot game because it’s a good way of getting you some winning combinations. That’s because it can substitute for other symbols so in this game watch out for the banana. It’s even more important here because it’s stacked so when it does make an appearance your chances of getting a win are as high as King Kong up a skyscraper.

It can’t substitute for the three bonus symbols this game has to offer. They are a wad of cash, a cityscape symbol and a barrel of coins.

Bonus Games

There are several bonus games here which is always good to report. Make sure you look through the paytable to get full details of all of them. Then have some free games to see them in action.

To get some free spins you need three piles of cash symbols to end up on the first, third and fifth reels. This is one of those games where you have to choose what you want to play with in the free spins round. You can either have five free spins with a 8x multiplier, ten with the multiplier only 4x or 20 free spins with all wins doubled. Going for the middle option looks best here, a decent number of free spins and a handy multiplier to do some damage with.
A good bonus round but sadly the free spins can’t be re-triggered.

If you can get at least three of the cityscape bonus symbols then this triggers the Trail Climb Bonus round. Your job is to climb the slope by rolling a dice. On the way you’ll be keen to collect barrels of money. If your roll of the dice produces a ‘Stop’ then that’s the end of the round.

The Barrel Bonus is triggered by landing at least three of the barrel symbols on the reels. You receive an instant prize for this which is then multiplied by your total stake for that spin.


The game may well have a basic look to it but there’s certainly a lot going on. The bonus games are profitable and you can definitely have some fun playing this game.
