Loco the Monkey slot REVIEW

Loco the Monkey ReviewPer usual, Quickspin does not disappoint when it comes to the visual presentation, and overall Loco the Monkey is a pretty decent game. It might be a tad too childish for some players, but it offers mood-lifting bright colors and a cheeky attitude. The math model can take unaware players by surprise though, and the advertised potential was only reached in 100 billion test spins.

Loco has probably gotten his name due to his rather insane “lazy eye” stare, but the frisky little chap stands for all the action in this game. Collecting sticky wilds in the respins feature can be quite lucrative at times, and the bonus round adds the possibility for multiplier sticky wilds. Players who enjoy plenty of sticky wild action will probably have a good time with this game.

Loco the Monkey Features

The monkey, Loco, is the wild symbol (in case that was unclear), and he can land on reels 2 to 5 only. Loco will thus step in for all regular pay symbols, but he also plays a very central part in the game’s bonus features.

When you land at least 4 Loco wilds in the base game, you trigger the More Monkeys Respins feature. All the Loco wilds that triggered the feature become frozen in place, while the remaining reel positions on reels 2 to 5 spin again. Any new monkey wild that lands becomes sticky too, and this awards another respin.

The feature goes on as long as you keep landing new monkey wilds, but you cannot trigger the bonus round via the respins feature. You will see that reel 1, which cannot land monkey wilds, will spin for the duration of the feature. This will be the last reel to stop once you don’t land any more Loco wilds, and it will thus have the final say in how much you win.

The scatter symbol is a golden monkey idol with gemstone eyes. You need to land the scatter on reels 1, 2 and 3 on the same spin to trigger the Monkey Frenzy bonus round. You will be granted 10 free spins here, and sticky multiplier wilds is the name of the game. The wild multipliers you build up will multiply with each other too, which can lead to larger payouts.

Any Loco wild that lands will become sticky for the whole feature. If you land a new monkey wild on top of an existing wild, a multiplier value is assigned to the wild. First you will get a 2x multiplier, and if it happens again you get the maximum of a 3x multiplier. You will also get 5 extra spins when you land 3 scatters on the same free spin.

The 200 Spins Loco the Monkey Experience

We had ourselves a solid win from the More Monkeys Respins feature, demonstrating how effective it can be at times. The bonus round is triggered at 1:20 into the highlights video you can check out below. We’ve edited out all the boring parts, so what you get is 2 and a half minutes of pure entertainment.

Review Summary

Anyone who’s travelled to exotic countries, and seen smaller monkeys in the wild, knows that behind the cute facade is a wild animal with dangerous teeth. This pretty much sums up Loco the Monkey as a game also. Quickspin’s use of bright colors and cute cartoon-style visuals should not fool anyone. The volatile math model will bare its teeth soon enough, and there is also some “monkey business” with the potential.

While the advertised 6,829x potential is theoretically possible in 100 billion spins, a full screen of wilds and bananas pay “only” 500x. With far more than a bit of luck with the bonus round wild multipliers, you are probably looking at a realistic max win potential no higher than 3,000x here. That being said, the Hold & Respin feature can pay out pretty decently when you’re lucky, and even bigger wins are possible in the bonus round.

Pros

Hold & Respin feature with sticky wilds

Bonus round with sticky wild multipliers up to 3x

High volatility and 6,829x theoretical max win potential

Cons

Realistic potential is less than half of what is advertised

If you enjoy Loco the Monkey you should also try:

Banana Odyssey - Monkeys were the first to explore space, so they beat humanity in that evolutionary feat too. This is depicted humoristically in this Slingshot production, where you will benefit from sticky wild respins and ditto free spins for wins up to 400x your stake.

Banana Rock - is a fun Play’n Go creation where the monkeys have formed a rock band with the lead singer Simeon Chimpsky. Land 2 of him on the same spin to see him dance across the reels, and leave plenty of wilds behind. This also awards a respin, and payouts up to 2,500x can be landed here.

Triple Monkey - is a rather simple game taking place on Easter island, and it comes with wild respins and a bonus round. It plays out on a classic 3x3 grid, and payouts up to 5,000x are possible here.
