Yggdrasil’s CEO Elmqvist says the Chinese legend-themed game is to become “one of the biggest games of the year”, as it will be played across many operators.

Packed with lots of beneficial free-spin rounds, limitless winning possibilities coming from the sticky wilds functionality, and some other lucrative features, ‘Monkey King’, the hot new slot game by the Sweden-based Yggdrasil Gaming, has great chances to become hugely popular with millions of virtual gamblers all over the world.

The game is loosely based on the life of Sun Wukong, a mythological figure known as the Monkey King from Journey to the West, a 16th century Chinese adventure novel. The slot boasts spectacular 3D graphics, and, to your great delight, the potentially winning combinations occur very frequently in it. One of the game’s advantageous features is unlocked when the King himself appears on the screen as you play, as he is in the power to boost your winnings.

Also in store for you are the mentioned above sticky wilds and the very special countdown wilds, not to mention as many as three various free-spin modes, each having its own specific rules and reward system. As a result, you can benefit from either infrequent yet efficient and more rewarding wilds, or wilds that are less lucrative yet fall upon the reels more often. Further on, an extra bonus symbol landing on the reel grid in the form of a treasure chest, can get you an additional free-spin reward, or credit extra coins to your current standings.

As told by Yggdrasil Gaming’s CEO Fredrik Elmqvist, ‘Monkey King’ “is one of [the company’s] most feature-packed games ever”. The team adds “something new and unique to all [their] slots”, Elmqvist explains, and, in case with ‘Monkey King’, players can easily win an impressive money prize “following a visit from the Monkey King”. He finds the slot looking “absolutely fantastic”, and believes it “is set to become one of the biggest games of the year”. Moreover, Elmqvist admits Yggdrasil are “excited to see it played across the many operators who have turned to [the developer] for the best slots” they can get in the entire industry.

Indeed, with Yggdrasil having received two awards for their top-rank gaming content – the ‘Software Rising Star’ and the ‘iGaming Software Supplier’ in 2015 and 2016, respectively, Elmqvist knows whereof he speaks.
