21st April 2022 – Innovative slots supplier AvatarUX has introduced the 10th title in its PopWins™ series with beautifully crafted new addition MonkeyPop™. The game is released exclusively to AvatarUX’s partners with direct integrations and will be rolled out globally on the 12th May.
Boasting a distinct, Japanese art style inspired by the Ukiyo-e woodblock prints and sumi-e ink art, MonkeyPop™ features gameplay immediately recognisable as AvatarUX’s through the innovative PopWins™ mechanic, which sees winning symbols pop, before being replaced by two more, increasing the reel height. This ‘popping’ can continue until no more wins are present.
If all six reels are unlocked in base play, low symbols may be removed from play and two free spins, with a random multiplier, are awarded.
If three or more bonus symbols land on a single spin, free spins are awarded, where reels can grow up to seven reels tall.
Before entering the mode, a Reward Reel awaits players, giving random starting spins, ways, multipliers, and multiplier growth as players prepare for the bonus.
MonkeyPop™ also offers players three separate Buy Bonuses, including regular, plus and max modes, which offer increasing win potential for higher sums, in certain jurisdictions.
It becomes the newest release from one of iGaming’s most innovative slot studios, following Lollipop™ in Q1 2022, joining a portfolio of 10 popular titles that have gained a large fan-following around the globe.
Nicola Longmuir, CEO at AvatarUX, said: “MonkeyPop™ combines our vaunted PopWins™ mechanic with an incredibly detailed artistic style.
“We rebuilt our win presentation animations and created a completely new set of effects, all to ensure a very distinctive style that evokes the best of Japanese art.
“AvatarUX is always on the lookout to bring innovative concepts to market, from mechanics to art style, and we think MonkeyPop™ combines a multitude of factors to be a unique gaming experience. We are extremely pleased with MonkeyPop™ and the beautiful art and design our team has created makes this a truly outstanding game.”
