Grand Monarch

About Grand Monarch

Grand Monarch is one of the most legendary and well-liked slots to ever be released by IGT. It is also one of the oldest still doing the rounds on the internet. If you can’t guess from its title, this slot is all about butterflies, with one in particular taking centre stage – the Grand Monarch butterfly. The slot itself is played over 5 reels and 50 very adjustable paylines, with players able to select minimum bets of just 1p per line, per spin. They can, of course, push the boat out and flex their financial muscles, wagering up to £2,500 a pop on this slot, if they wish. At most, you are looking at bagging a non-progressive prize worth 1,000 coins in this IGT developed slot machine game.

Special features

Grand Monarch is not brimming over with special features. There is a wild, and it takes the shape of titular butterfly. It can not only offer you the non-progressive prize if you bag 5 on a payline, but it can replace all other symbols in the slot, save for the caterpillar larvae.
That multicoloured and striped caterpillar is a bonus icon. If you are fortunate enough to land 3 of them on the second, third, and fourth reels of this slot, then you will trigger Grand Monarch’s bonus round. That is a free spins bonus.

Bonus features

The free spins bonus round in this slot is not exactly extensive. After you have pocketed your 2x total bet multiplier for landing the scatters in the first place, you will start the bonus with 5 free spins in total. There are no additional multipliers in this bonus, but you can add an additional 5 free spins to your tally by landing more scatters during the feature.


Truth be told, the special features in the Grand Monarch slot are more than just dated by now. However, due to its simplicity, a great number of players still love this video slot, and so it is still hugely popular on the net. There are other slots out there offering you bigger prizes and more features for your money, but they don’t have the legendary status that the Grand Monarch slot does.
