Funky Monkey Slot Machine
Funky Monkey is a 3 reel and 1 payline game produced by Playtech. The slot game is themed around instrument playing chimpanzees. In the top left-hand corner of the screen, there is a smiling chimp, wearing sunglasses and playing a bongo drum. This Chimp cheers you on as you make wins and could be considered as the game's mascot. The pay-table is in the right-hand corner of the game and it displays all the payouts for the different symbols.
The single reel is big, bold and takes up the bottom half of the screen. The color palette of Funky Monkey is mostly made up of bright purples and green being the predominant background color. The graphics are done in a cartoon style that adds to the 'funky' theme. The soundtrack is made up of theme-appropriate upbeat, island-style music tracks.

Bonus Rounds and Payouts
Funky Monkey is a classic-styled slot, only 3 reels and 1 pay-line. As with most slots of this traditional set up, it does not have any bonus rounds, special symbols or fancy features. However, the high pay-outs make up for the lack of bonus features
The lowest paying symbols in the game are the 1Bar, 2Bar and 3Bar symbols. The pay-out for these symbols ranges from 10 to 180x your bet depending on which Bars you land and how many of them you land. The Banana Bunch pays slightly more, at 240x your bet for 3 in a row. The Sunglasses symbol rewards players with 300x their bet for landing 3 of a kind in winning combo, while the Yellow Huts pay out 600x for the same combination. The Palm Trees are second-most valuable symbol and reward players with 1200x their bet for spinning in 3 or them. The Bongo Drums are the game's most valuable symbol and award players with a maximum of 2500x their bet.
There are awards for landing 1 symbol as well as 2 symbols for each and every symbol. This may sound as if you can never lose, but it is important to remember that in these classic style games that full symbols don't always spin into view. More often than not, symbols are cut off half way. The good news is that you will be rewarded when any 3 symbols in their entirety land on the reels.
Additional Game Features
The higher your bet is, the higher your pay-outs will be, so it is advisable to always bet the maximum amount. Funky Monkey makes this easy to do by their addition of the 'Max Bet' button that allows players to automatically bet the maximum amount on every spin.

Playtech has given a classic and conventional-styled online slot game a very unconventional theme. The crazy theme of Funky Monkey has done a great job in bringing humor and excitement to a game that would otherwise have a relatively dull setup. The game's mascot seems to have stepped straight out of a famous movie.
The graphics are of high quality and have a semi-realistic cartoon feel. The soundtrack matches the theme to upmost perfection and adds an additional level of cheerfulness to the slot game. Although Funky Monkey is void of bonus features, wilds and scatters, the game is still engaging and there is major winning potential with the incredible jackpot of 2,500x your bet.
