3 Dancing Monkeys Free Spins

During the base game, you will come into contact with Red, Green, and Blue Gems. These Gems correspond with each of the coloured Monkey Modifiers on the rightmost side of the reel set.

Each time a coloured Gem lands in view, it will contribute towards filling the corresponding Monkey Modifier with the potential to trigger the Free Spins round.

  • Triggering the Free Spins round with the Red Gem awards the Ways Modifier. During Free Spins, the reel set transforms into a 5×5 grid of symbols.
  • Triggering the Free Spins round with the Green Gem awards the Wilds Modifier. During Free Spins, additional Wild symbols are added to reels 2, 3, and 4.
  • Triggering the Free Spins round with the Blue Gem awards the Wins Modifier. During Free Spins, all Wild symbols will appear with a random Multiplier of x2, 3, or x5 that is applied to all winning combinations they are a part of.

Also during Free Spins, whenever a coloured Gem symbol lands, there is a chance for it to enable its corresponding Modifier if it is not already in play. When this happens, an additional +5 Free Spins will be awarded.

Mystery symbols in the form of Maps are also in play during this time. Whenever a Mystery symbol lands in view, it will transform into either a number of additional Free Spins or a random Cash Prize between 1x and 5,000x your current bet.

3 Dancing Monkeys: Our Verdict

When we first crossed paths with a Wild Streak Gaming slot, we were a little quick to judge it based on appearances alone. After reviewing a fair few of their titles since then, we’ve learned not to judge a book by its cover so to speak.

Wild Streak Gaming may not gift their games with the most up-to-date of designs and graphics, but they always seem to deliver on the features and mechanics side of things.

3 Dancing Monkeys is another of Wild Streak Gaming’s titles to have some interesting Modifiers up for grabs, but these are only available during Free Spins. The only real distraction in the base game is the collection of Gems that can trigger the Free Spins round at any given moment.

Once Free Spins are triggered, the likelihood of hitting the max win cap of 12,077x seems all the more possible thanks to the Ways, Wilds, and Wins Modifiers.

Although you start Free Spins with 1 Modifier active, you can in fact unlock the remaining 2 if enough matching Gems land in view, but you may need to bag yourselves a few additional Free Spins to make this possible.

All in all, 3 Dancing Monkeys didn’t quite get us on our feet dancing, but it’s a party you don’t want to miss.
