Monkey: Battle for the Scrolls Features
As you would hope, Scrolls feature quite heavily in this game and have different parts to play. Before we attack the special elements that come together, I can tell you that regular wins are made by matching groups of 3, 4 or 5 symbols, starting from the leftmost reel and landing adjacent to each other.
The highest-paying symbols are the 4 quirky characters and the four lowest-payers are Royal symbols. The top win for landing 5 of the highest-paying characters, which incidentally is some sort of ape, is only 1.5x your stake. But don’t worry as there are bigger wins available in other areas of the game.
There are Bonus symbols available and these don't trigger a bonus game as such. Instead, 2 of them will get you an x100 prize while 3 of them score an x500 prize. So as you can see, big wins are definitely waiting in the wings.
Modifiers & Free Spins
To the top of the reels, you’ll notice 4 icons that coincide with reels number 1, 2, 4 and 5. If one of these symbols lights up at the same time as the Demon Scatter symbol on the reel below it, you will release a modifier.
The monkey brings stacked Wilds, the pig gets you split symbols, the elfin girl provides random Wilds and the Monk gets you some Mystery symbols.
There is a Free Spins Bonus and this requires 3 Closed Scroll Symbols to start the party. You get to choose a character and this could be important as not only does it determine the amount of spins and starting multiplier, but also the feature that will remain throughout your spins.
Let me explain! Your chosen character is persistent and whenever it lands with an open scroll symbol below it, that feature comes to life. Your chosen multiplier is also applied to any wins that come from that feature. To see the other 3 character features, you will need them to appear in the same way that they do in the base game. It's possible for multiple character features to start at the same time.
