Money Mad Monkey slot from Microgaming

Money Mad Monkey slot from Microgaming
In 2013 Microgaming developers decided to diversify the company portfolio with an eccentric premise for a slot. They were told: must include Monkeys! Money Mad Monkey slot machine is the wacky result. One entertaining and standard at the same time game, loosely based on Donkey Kong (the vintage 80’s video game). This greedy Monkey is being chased by a zookeeper, who’s clearly related to Super Mario and searches for Cash all over the city. When he finds it, he will share it with you, maybe in exchange for some bananas.

There are valuable Wild Bananas, two bonus games involving barrels with cash prizes, but the main attraction is the Free Spins bonus round with a multiplier up to x8. This piling money action takes place on a 5x3 grid, crossed by 20 pay lines, and is backed by an upbeat retro-electro soundtrack to take you all the way back to the ’80s. With an RTP of 96.23%, Medium Volatility, and a max win of 10 000 coins there’s no way you can go wrong with the Money Mad Monkey slot machine.

Personal testers’ opinion

The Money Mad Monkey slot machine was big fun to test since we fall in the category of people who were present when Donkey Kong was first released in the early ’80s. Especially the Trail Climb bonus brought back memories of way back then. This 'primates' game is genuinely appealing to a big audience, because of the overall joyful vibe and various bonus games. Monkeys are always amusing in any shape or form, so Microgaming made a smart move by combining Money, Monkey, and an immensely popular 80’s video game.

However, we cannot omit to mention also the pitfalls of the game. Despite the average cycle and dispersion, the game is not capable of keeping the bankroll levelled, perhaps due to the low hit frequency (only around 15% - not only unpleasant - just shocking). For the bonus hunters, this means - better put this game on the ‘unsuitable’ shelf and focus on other Monkey businesses. As for the real money games, we can only leave neutral recommendations, even though one time during testing we reached the lofty winning of over 400x the total bet.
