Funky Monkey is an online slot game brought to you by software manufacturer Playtech. It’s a classic themed slot, and therefore both the setup and visuals are quite simplistic. The graphics in this offering are 2D and obviously cartoonish with not a lot of sophistication to boast about, and the backdrop features a colorfully dressed chimpanzee (also wearing sunglasses) happily beating a drum. In addition, there are some green flowers growing around the chimp – which is a little strange – and to the monkey’s right you will see the paytable in all its glory. Below that is where all of the action will be taking place – on the reels themselves. These feature a variety of BAR symbols (1 BAR, 2 BAR, and 3 BAR) as the lower value icons, and the higher paying icons are bananas, sunglasses, huts, grass, and drums.
This brings us to the technical points in Funky Monkey, starting with the game’s layout. As is custom in classic slot machines there are only 3 reels, and each of these also come with 3 rows. However, players will have but a single payline to bet on, so this solves the dilemma of how many paylines to play with. Nevertheless, there is still some flexibility in terms of the betting options in this title. There are 3 coin values, each of which will make for different payout sizes, and obviously, the higher the coin value the bigger the prizes. Therefore, stakes here span from a minimum bet of only 1p per spin and they reach a maximum bet of £15 per single spin.
As far as the features go in Funky Monkey, it’s as purist as can be. There are no special symbols whatsoever – no Wilds, no Scatters, and no Bonus symbols that can help trigger special features. Likewise, there will be no freespins, no pick me games, no gamble features, and not even a progressive jackpot to spin for.
This is an old school slot machine at its finest and will not be everyone’s cup of tea. Here you won’t have to focus on anything else but gameplay itself, and that is what makes these sorts of offerings remain popular today.
Funky Monkey will certainly not appeal to every player out there, and if you are after an abundance of bonuses and other extras then you’d best avoid it. But if simplicity happens to be precisely what you’re looking for, then this title is most definitely worth giving a try. It may not look like much, but it has decent winning potential, and note the agreeable RTP of 97.15% as well.
