When monkeys are involved, mischief will never be too far around the corner and the same principle can be said of Yggdrasil’s Legend of the Golden Monkey slot game. The Golden Monkey, which could represent something from the Planet of the Apes in another era, is the leader of his tribe and will do anything in his power to protect his treasure.
The Swedish developers have decided to give the ever-popular Asian/Oriental themed slot game approach a go with this title, and it would seem as though they have managed to come up with a title that is action-packed with a number of bonus features.
We did a Legend of the Golden Monkey slot review for players looking to learn about the game from one of the biggest slot game developers currently in the industry and have provided a detailed introduction covering all bases.
Legend of the Golden Monkey slot is a 5-reel, 25 pay-line video slot machine with many outstanding features. The design of the game looks like the reels are set in an oriental town, and the golden carp and ancient patterns are used as pillars to support the roulette.
