Will You Spin Some Magic with the Help of the Magic Monkey?
You’d expect the appearance of a
monkey in a slot
with this sort of title, and he does indeed appear dressed as a magician, by the looks of it. This is a basic-looking slot and we think it’s older than many of the other games released by Wager Gaming Technology.
Still, it’s always worth taking a look at their games, so let’s find out whether any magic is afoot on the reels.
What’s the story with reels and paylines?
This is a five-reel game with 25 paylines, so at least you have quite a few chances to win on every spin you make.
What can you bet on this slot?
Wager Gaming does like its ‘one cent to ten dollars’ coin range when it constructs new games, and that is exactly what you will find in action here.
Does Magic Monkey have more valuable symbols in play?
The Magic Monkey is a wild symbol and he can replace most other symbols used in the slot. The only one he won’t replace is the banana. This may lead you to assume (correctly) that the banana is the scatter.
Can you play a bonus round?
You get 20 free spins for your efforts if you can get three bananas to appear in one spin, regardless of where they happen to fall. Every prize you happen to win in these free games will be doubled for you, so there is some potential there to get some good prizes.

Okay, so Magic Monkey sounds superb but it does suffer from an overly-basic design. The basic bones of the game are identical to a lot of others, which is good in a way as you’ll know what to expect. However, after a few spins you may well find it to be a bit repetitive.
The symbols are a little uninspiring as well. Other than the two more powerful symbols, you only have a spell book, an orb, a bubbling flask and a dragon (for some weird reason). The rest of the symbols are the usual A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9, and they appear in exactly the same way they do in a lot of other games.
This could have been a much better game, but if all you want is something well-built with a reliable appearance, it might do the trick.
