How to play

Enjoy plenty of bonus features, free spins and more when you play this game, which although it doesn’t necessarily have all the drama of some of the other big video slot games, makes up for it with fun. With a jackpot on offer of 1000 times your stake, there are some serious payouts to be won here.

Important Symbols in The Monkey Prince

  • Wild: Collect masks to trigger the wild feature
  • Scatter: Red door
  • High value symbols: Golden lion, golden dragon, red, blue and yellow face masks.


The Monkey Prince comes with a jackpot of 1000x your initial stake and with bet sizes going all the way up to £1800 per spin, you could potentially win some big money here.

Like most video slots, the idea with this game is to get five of the same symbols on an active payline. The higher value symbols are the lions and dragons but you need to get five wilds for the maximum payout. To do this you’ll need to activate the Wild Feature.

The Monkey Prince is a medium variance game with an average RTP of around 95.40%.

  • 5 yellow masks: Surrounding Wilds – one random symbol and all the symbols around it turn into wilds.

Free Spins Bonus: Get three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll activate the free spins bonus feature. Get free spins and a set number of wilds depending on how many scatters you landed and which of the three bonuses you choose:
