Disco Monkey is a laid-back and funky slot with monkey king and classic symbols. There are free spins and the features are pretty straightforward. The modifiers and math model are very similar to those of the football-themed Super Striker.
NetEnt plans the release of this video slot with 3 reels and 3 rows for the 9th of August. The game is pleasant and simple with a lot of multipliers and 5 levels during free spins. The latter holds the highest winning potential. This is thanks to including level multipliers as well as multiplier symbols. They are summed up and paid at the end of each level.
Disco Monkey has 3 reels, 3 rows and 5 fixed pay-lines. You can play with wagers in the range of 10p to £250 per spin. The volatility is high and the return to player – 96.04%. The hit rate of this game with disco club theme is 14.01% and the bonus frequency is 1 in around 250 spins. Disco Monkey has the math model of another NetEnt slot – Football Striker. The features are identical and the differences are in the design and theme. Also, the optional Bet Slip feature is not included in Disco Monkey.
There are 2 scatters, one of which gives you monetary rewards and both can trigger the free spins. During these rounds, you can land only blank symbols and the golden disco ball scatters. They include multiplier values and are in the range of 1x to 50x. There are 5 levels of the free spins with level multipliers from x1 to x10. The max win per spin is between 1,333 and 3,333 times your bet.
Disco Monkey has a 70s groovy atmosphere with a retro feel. The background in the base game is a purple striped disco area and the grid is in the centre. The 3×3 playing area has 3 light-yellow reels and classic symbols. These are the 7, single, double and triple bars, silver and golden glowing disco balls. There is a monkey king as a symbol as well.
The free spins play in a vivid and bright pink, orange and red striped background. The reels are the same. The symbols are golden disco balls with a different multiplier value each and blanks. On the right are displayed the left free spins number, the total won amount and the level multiplier. The soundtrack in the base game and free spins is groovy, rhythmic, disco and relaxing. The colours are glowing, vivid and bright.
The pay-table consists of classic icons such as single, double and triple bars. There are roller skates, a lucky 7 and a king disco monkey. Scoring combinations with all kinds of bars pay a consolation price of 0.60x bet. This is the lowest return of all symbols.
The most rewarding symbol is the disco monkey king with a payout of 100 times your stake. A full screen of the disco king grants 500 times your bet win. There is no wild among the symbols but instead, there are 2 different scatters. These are the silver and the golden disco balls. to score a win you need 3 matching symbols landed on any of the 5 pay-lines.
Landing a golden disco ball scatter anywhere on the reels awards a random cash prize. These symbols can land at any time in the gameplay and ensure you cash wins.
To trigger the free spins you need either a golden ball scatter with 2 silver balls or 3 silver disco ball scatters on the same spin. The feature gives you 3 starting free spins, during which only golden ball symbols or blank ones can land. Each landed golden ball scatter resets the spins back to 3. It has a multiplier value ranging between 1x and 50x. If you get no golden disco ball during 3 consecutive spins, the feature ends.
The free spins have 5 levels and each one has a multiplier which is:
x1 multiplier on Level 1;
x2 multiplier on Level 2;
x3 multiplier on Level 3;
x5 multiplier on Level 4;
x10 multiplier on Level 5;
You can see the level, the accumulated win amount, the left free spins and the multiplier value displayed to the right. You advance to the next level with a screen full of 9 golden disco ball scatters. All their values are added together, increased by the level multiplier and paid out to you. If you are lucky, you can win a lot from the free spins feature especially in case you reach more levels.
Disco Monkey is funky and has rewarding features especially during the free spins. Playing it, you can win from 1,333 to 3,333 times your stake from the 5 levels of the rounds with multiplier symbols. The game is nice, although nothing exceptional or innovative. If you like its features, give it a try and spin the reels to get in you in a 70s club mood. It will be available since August 2020.
