Grand Monarch is not about any branch of royalty, but about the life cycle of the North American Grand Monarch butterfly. The background of this new slot game by International Game Technology is a dense green garden, full of bright blossoms and flowering trees and butterflies.
The major symbols all relate to the garden, as one would expect, and the player will see the Monarch Butterfly, a caterpillar, a sunflower and a gladiolus, a lotus flower and a zinnia. There are also the classic playing card symbols, from nine to Ace, which also come in different colours. The large, orange Monarch butterfly is the Wild, and can substitute for any of the other symbols except the Caterpillar, which is this game’s Scatter symbol. A Chrysalis activates the bonus round.
This game by the well known giant games developer, International Game Technology, or IGT, features five reels and fifty pay lines, and gives the player plenty of chances to win over the twenty stop space. Continuing the theme of flora and fauna, the reels are even topped with little white flowers.
Bonus Game with Caterpillars
Find three of the Caterpillar Scatters anywhere on the middle three reels of Grand Monarch, and the player will be taken to the bonus game which will give him a payout equal to double the original wager that was placed. This will see the player move to a second set of reels, which are light blue in colour.
These reels will use the same pay table as the standard game, with the main prize being awarded for five Wilds in a winning combination. This can be as much as 1,000 coins. If the whole screen is filled with butterflies, which can happen thanks to the Grand Monarch itself being a Stacked Wild card symbol, and there will be a huge payout of 50,000 coins. Many game players have found that by activating the maximum number of pay lines per spin there will be the maximum winning opportunities.
As Grand Monarch does have the Stacked Wild symbols feature it is obvious that the more lines are in play the more chances there will be for winning combinations.
Big Jackpot Available
The free spins round uses a special set of reels where even more Stacked Wilds can appear, and this will make even more chances for the player to find big wins. The bonus round can also be reactivated by the player hitting on three more Scatters. The Bonus round can be retriggered several times with a maximum value of 250 spins.
The free spin reels in Grand Monarch are even more lucrative than some of the other IGT slots games, as they feature more Stacked Wilds, so bigger wins happen even more often. If the player at online casino British Colombia finds three of the Caterpillar Scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 all at the same time and in the same base game, he will be rewarded with five free spins.
The All-Important Butterfly Symbol
In the casino slots game Grand Monarch, the butterfly symbol is the Jackpot symbol, and if at least five of them appear on many activated pay line that is in play, the player will win the Jackpot which is valued at 1000 coins for each coin that was wagered on that specific pay line.
IGT do always offer a good choice of different slots games which come with a variety in the number of pay lines available.
