The Monkey King rules the Jungle and all of the riches within it in NoLimit City’s brand-new game, Monkeys Gold xPays Slot.
This game debuts the new and innovative mechanic xPays, and we’re excited to see what kind of flavour this new way of playing brings to the game.
You never know what quite to expect with a NoLimit City game, but the only thing you can be certain of is that a NoLimit City badge will undoubtedly mean that the game lives up to that level of quality we’ve come to know and love from the Casino Software Provider.
Imagination seems to know no bounds, with a wide array of games under their belt that couldn’t be more different.
Whether It’s the haunting hollow of Book of Shadows, or a picturesque Arabian night in Golden Genie and the Walking Wilds, you can guarantee that NoLimit have something to pique your interest. Can Monkey Gold xPays cement itself among a portfolio of quality games that leaves an impression that lasts?
The game is set deep within the jungle, hidden from civilisation where the ground is laden with gold. Two gigantic structures sit either side of the reel, with vines and leaves covering them, and the sounds and music convey a setting of untamed and wild theme.
The play area is set upon a 6×6 grid with 36 symbols
Betting options as per usual from a NoLimit City slot have a vast array of available options. The lowest bet available is 0.20, with the highest at 100. There’re tonnes of options in between, and an ideal option for everyone
Monkey’s Gold xPays is a 6-reel video slot with 12 symbols in total. The top paying symbols comprise of 3 God like symbols, with the monkey god as top symbol in orange.
The next highest paying symbol is green then blue. Medium symbols are made up of an orange gem, a green gem, and a blue gem. Low paying symbols are A, K, Q & J
Each spin, symbols will fall onto the 6×6 grid to fill 36 available spaces. 3 or more symbols need to connect from reel 1 to reel 3 to form a win. This is where NoLimit City introduce their new xPays system.
When 3 or more symbols connect, the xPays mechanic will kick in. All non-winning symbols will be removed from the grid, and the winning ones will remain, followed by a free drop.
In the free drop, if more of the same symbol lands that initiated the free drop, then they will also stick. Any other symbols that are not part of the initial drop will also persist into the next drop if 3 or more match from left to right.
Symbols do not pay out in the base game until the conclusion of xPays, where it will then pay based on all symbols accumulated during xPays.
This is a great feature to have every winning spin. The potential to land a lot more of the initial winning symbols is an attractive feature that can result in some nice wins, and that’s not all xPays has to offer.
2×2 or 3×3 colossal symbols may land on any free drop. Colossal symbols will hold a multiplier ranging from 4x to 500x. Colossal symbols will fill any empty positions underneath itself with Wilds.
Any symbol with a multiplier gets counted as multiple symbols. Wild symbols inherits any active symbol multiplier when substituted
Whenever a full row is filled after a collapse or full screen, collected symbols will be upgraded to a higher paying symbol, the highest paying symbol will be upgraded with a multiplier.
Monkey’s Gold Free Spins is triggered by 3 or more Bonus symbols. 3 symbols will award 10 spins, and any additional Bonus symbols will give you +3 extra spins.
Also, any bonus symbols that land within the Free Spins will award an extra +1 spins.
In Free Spins, a Sticky Vine Multiplier is added to xPays for enhanced wins.
This feature will award a Sticky win multiplier for each row that is filled up, and will persist for the entirety of the Casino Bonus.
The Vine Multiplier will multiply the total win amount when no more winning symbols are added. At the beginning of Free Spins, the initial multiplier and the steps it will increase is decided by a dice, each row filled will then award an increasing vine multiplier by either 1x, 2x or 3x.
NoLimit City have done yet another superb job with their innovative new xPays Mechanic.
It almost feels like every spin has massive potential with the presence of this in the game as well as their colossal and upgrading symbols, as well as symbol multipliers which has massive potential on its own with a chance to land a 500x.
The maximum win stated by NoLimit is huge at 12,693x, and if you achieve anywhere near it, you can well and truly say that you’ve waltzed into the Jungle and bled the Monkey King dry.
The game has a few complexities, but those who are a fan of these new ways of playing will undoubtedly appreciate all the mechanics at play here. Overall, another solid game from a solid provider.
