About Grand Monarch
Grand Monarch is a fifty pay-line slot from IGT. It gives you tons of chances to win over its twenty stop space, five reel format, which should be a more than familiar sight to lovers of the Las Vegas styled game. It’s easy to exploit this rather large board with the huge number of butterfly stacked wilds that appear on the reels. These vertically arranged clusters are the key to making the big money here and can pay some massive multiple combination prizes.
Gorgeous primary colours and flowers occupy the reels of Grand Monarch, which are so large they don’t really give much room for anything other than the faintest of floral borders around the edges of the reels. You’ve got a big win animation, which leaps out of the screen when you score in more than 500 credits and the game helpfully shows you where you’ve hit your wins and how much each one pays following any spin.
The music on Grand Monarch has been artfully created. Leave the game alone for five seconds and it will fade to silent, but spin the reels and a symphony awaits you. Notice as the tones and sounds drop in accordance with you wins – and we’re not talking cheesy win fx either, we’re talking about subtle, sweeping changes in the ambiance. Compared to many other slots out there, IGT have definitely set a new standard with Grand Monarch.
Stop in three of the special silkworm scatters on the middle three reels of Grand Monarch to take you into the bonus game and give you a prize equal to double your total stake. This literally sees you moving to a second set of faintly blue reels, which use the same pay-table as the standard game, with the top prize coming for hitting five wilds in combination – 1,000 coins. Fill the whole board with butterflies (not as rare as you might think due to stacking) and you’ve got a super-payout of 50,000 coins.
The free spin round uses a special set of reels that feature even more stacked wilds than the regular game, making this a recipe for some big paying successes. These can lead to the big wins and of course there’s always the chance that you can re-trigger the bonus by stopping in three more scatters. Believe it or not it’s possible for the bonus to re-trigger several times with a max value of just over 250 spins.
