Playtech's stable of Asian-inspired slots is widespread, and the company's track record is just as diverse. Some of the games look and play well, and some of them are bland and almost featureless. I really despise those games as they're almost cookie cutter in their design. Fortunately, the Sun Wukong slot is a bit different in some ways, making it a better choice if you need to play a Chinese slot.
Sun Wukong is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot that is set up against a Chinese forest and mountain background. The symbols in the game are a combination of Asian stylized classic slot icons (9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace) as well as a plum, horse, warrior, pig man, king, and monkey man.
The game's features include wild symbols, scatter symbols, and free spins, which are triggered when three or more scatters are on the reels. The game also has win multipliers that can be set off during the free spins mode. The game also has a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 96%, which is pretty decent overall for an online slot.
Looking at the game as a whole, Sun Wukong is a modest improvement on many of the other Chinese slots from Playtech, but its still pretty bland in the grand scheme of things. The game's visuals are a lot better, but the gameplay is still pretty lame and after a few minutes I was ready to move on to something else.
I think there's a large population (likely in Asia) that likes to play these games, and that's why Playtech puts them out. The game will likely hit home with that audience, but anybody else will likely want to stick to the better Playtech games out there, which are more feature packed and have better presentations.
