As you navigate your way through China in search of the legend, you will find some special features to assist you in your task. These are all very nice additions from Yggdrasil, and they begin with the Golden Monkey Feature. This actually sees the monkey himself show up on screen at random moments. Once he does, he will change one of the symbols into another, but always to your advantage. Therefore, he can be quite instrumental in helping you to create winning combinations in the game.
During base gameplay, you will also get to see the appearance of a treasure chest icon. This can also show up at random times and in any position on reel five. Should it do so, it will provide you with one of two different features. There’s up to 1,000 coins available from a treasure chest, or the ability to play the freespins round. During this feature, if the treasure chest shows up again, you’ll get up to 1,000 coins or two additional freespins.
However, the freespins mode can also trigger via the Freespins symbol. Landing three or more of these in any location will activate such. You’ll get to choose between three different freespins feature rounds, which are as follows:
- Incremental Wilds. This provides you with six freespins and sees the monkey add one permanently sticky wild on the second or fourth reel on every spin. This happens until those reels are completely full from wilds.
- Stacked Wild. You’ll receive eight freespins in this mode, with sticky wilds showing up on reels two and four being permanently sticky. A special Triple Stacked Wild that is not sticky can also land on the third reel.
- Starting Wild. The 10 freespins that you receive in this mode provide you with a permanently sticky wild in the central position. Sticky wilds on the second and fourth reels are also permanently sticky.
You will also see the appearance of a couple more features during base gameplay. For example, the golden monkey icon works as a wild symbol. And this can appear in two different ways. Wild icons obviously substitute for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination. If you see a standard sticky wild come into play, it will remain in its position until the next round. As long as you continue winning, the sticky wild remains in position. These can only show up on reels two and four. The other one is the Count Down Wild. These will stay in place for three more spins only. And these ones are only able to show up on the third reel during gameplay.
