Grand Monarch

IGT's Grand Monarch slot is named after a beautiful orange-and-black butterfly which is particularly prevalent in North American. In the late summer and early autumn months, these stunning creatures can be seen making their way south to the warmer climates of California and Mexico.


But, luckily for us, even players in the UK can spot the Grand Monarch butterfly all-year-round in this skilfully illustrated online slots game. You too could be flying high with cash prizes which are awarded each time three or more matching symbols appear from left-to-right across the screen.

The stacked wild symbol can help you create valuable winning combinations more frequently while the chrysalises in the Free Spins Bonus can help you emerge from your cocoon with up to two hundred and twenty-five free spins on extra-rich reels.

More about the Software Provider

International Game Technology IGT – a.k.a. IGT – is a multinational gaming company that manufactures online slots and physical slot machines. There are plenty of its games, including Grand Monarch, Da Vinci Diamonds, and Wolf Run, which were first released as slots for the casino floor.

Luckily for us, they have proved so successful that the majority are now available to play online. IGT games can be found at many online casinos including Samba Slots, and range from mythology-inspired titles like Golden Goddess and Nordic Heroes to games which are based on TV shows and board games such as Wheel of Fortune on Tour and Monopoly.

Appearance and Sound Effects

You'll feel as though you are relaxing in a sprawling English country garden on a warm spring day when you play the Grand Monarch slot, as a beautiful tune featuring violins and a piano fill the air, and you can almost smell the wildflowers that adorn the hedgerows and gardens that surround the reels.

In the centre of the screen sits the five-by-four reel set which contains a colourful variety of nature-themed symbols such as lotus flowers, anemones, sunflowers, caterpillars, and brightly coloured butterflies, along with six playing card symbols (A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9).

At the bottom of the reels, the "Lines" box lets you adjust the number of active paylines to 1, 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50.

Bonuses and Special Features

The Grand Monarch butterfly has been chosen to represent the wild symbol, and it can substitute for all symbols except the chrysalis. The wild can appear both partially and fully stacked on the reels to offer additional winning opportunities.

When the Chrysalis scatter lands on Reels 2, 3, and 4 simultaneously, it triggers the bonus game where you initially receive five free spins. Plus, it also awards two times your total bet. The reels that are used in the Free Spins Bonus are much richer than in the base game as they contain more stacked wilds. Every time another three scatters land on the screen, you gain five more free games, up to a maximum of two hundred and fifty-five.

Paylines/Reels

Grand Monarch uses five reels, four rows of symbols, and twenty-five non-fixed paylines, and has an RTP (Return to Player Rate) that falls between 92.99% and 94.97%.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
