Mad Mad Monkey – Intro
If you’re on the hunt for a jumbo slot with lots of paylines and lots of payouts, try Mad Mad Monkey! The titular character is a fitting Wild. This loco monkey increases your chances of completing paylines AND doubles all winning combinations that it is part of. One thing for sure, Mad Mad Monkey holds a lot of potential when it comes to rewarding you with extra spins and win multipliers.
In this slot game, you stand a chance to win up to 20 extra spins on top of a 3x win multiplier on all your winnings. Here comes the best part: If you are lucky enough to get 5 Banana symbols on your reels, you may win the jackpot of up to a staggering £90,000 depending on your wager. Has the monkey truly gone mad?
About The Slot
Mad Mad Monkey is a 5-reel slot. The game offers a massive 50 paylines, so you’ll be sure to enjoy a fast-paced gaming session full of quick wins. However, you can adjust the number of paylines according to your preferences and cash flow at any time. The game just recommends that you play all 50 at a time because you’ll get more stacked wilds!
Mad Mad Monkey accepts bets between 2p to £10 per payline. This gives a bet range of 2p to £500, so there’s plenty of room to raise your bets when you’re in the position to, or lower them when you need to play more conservatively. That said, this game would fit players of all budgets even though it does slightly favor those who bet more since it gives out extra spins pretty often.
The symbols in Mad Mad Monkey are inspired by the jungle. They include a comb of bananas, a tropical bird, a snake, coconuts, peanuts, A, K, Q, J and 10. The paytable is very, very promising. The most valuable symbol could deliver up to 1,000x your stake! At maximum stake, you could earn a maximum return of £250,000 per spin!
Of course, any slot player knows of the reality of scoring more three-of-a-kind wins than others. Mad Mad Monkey still offers a decent proposition here, with a minimum bet of 5x with 10 and J symbols. Since most spins trigger a few paylines at a time, you’d likely maintain the size of your bankroll quite easily.
How Does This Mobile Slot Perform?
Mad Mad Monkey is produced by a gaming studio called NextGen. It’s what you’d call a above-average video slot experience. The thumping jungle music and cute animal sound effect really sets the stage for a wild gaming experience. Just like all the other NextGen slot games, the experience that Mad Mad Monkey offers is just as captivating on mobile phones and tablets. You can tell from the way it is designed that it was made for mobile devices; all buttons are fairly spaced between each other to avoid accidental taps and so on.
Another great thing about this mobile slot is that I encountered literally zero lags throughout my 30 minute of vigorous testing on it. Normally I wouldn’t be surprised and would expect it anyway, but given the sophistication in graphics and the fact that I was playing it on a two year old phone, I have to say NextGen did a pretty amazing job here.

Game Features: Win Multipliers, Extra Spins!
The big money lies with the Mad Mad Monkey himself. This hyperactive chimp acts as the Wild symbol and substitutes all other symbols to complete winning paylines. In addition, all wins that Mad Mad Monkey is part of are doubled! Imagine getting a regular 15x payout and having that multiplied by two. Imagine getting those surprise mega payouts and having them multiplied by two!
Aside from the Wild monkeys, this slot also pulls above its weight when it comes to free games. Whenever you get three scatter symbols (the logo of this slot game) on the reels, you’ll automatically unlock ten extra spins. For the duration of these 10 extra spins, you’ll get to play on a enhanced set of reels.
First, the most valuable symbol—the comb of bananas—appears stacked on all reels. This increases its chances of stopping in view and hence, increases the chances of scoring big wins. Secondly, all prizes during a free game are tripled. Don’t forget, the Wild monkeys already multiply all wins by two. Together, there is potential to land some pretty mad payouts. These free games can be re-triggered.
NextGen’s slot games are never complete without the studio’s signature Gamble feature game.
This feature game offers players the opportunity to double (or even quadruple) their slot winnings, but only if one is bold enough to risk it all! The premise of the game is simple: guess the correct colour or suit of the mystery card. Get it right and you’ll multiply your win significantly; guess wrongly and forfeit your hard-won prize.
This little feature can really make or break your wallet. However, I always encourage players to have a go every ten spins or so. There’s nothing like a little adrenaline pumping through your system to make you feel alive!
Mad Mad Monkey — £90,000 Jackpot Up For Grabs!
I would only dock a few points off my review because this slot may soon fall off the ranks. Many of the newer video slots utilize even more cutting-edge graphics software. While Mad Mad Monkey’s lively cartoons can hold their place now, it won’t be too long before a hyper-realistic, action-packed King Kong takes over the reels.
Game wise, I think I can confidently say that the extra spins are the best thing in the game itself. Whenever you are lucky enough to trigger this feature, you automatically receive a respectable 10 extra spins instantly. Rarely do we see these days where developers are this generous with extra spins.
To make things sweeter for you, it really isn’t that difficult to trigger the extra spins. Every 25 or so spins you should be able to get 10 extra spins. Hold on! In the event that you get the 3 bonus symbols whilst you are already playing the extra spins, you would be rewarded an additional 10 extra spins, giving you a total of 20 to play with! Not bad for a day’s work to be honest!
Of course, it will be a sin not to mention the massive jackpot that Mad Mad Monkey offers in this game. £90,000 cash prize for the top jackpot? Where do I sign up?
