Monsters tend to come in two categories. There’s the scary ones that cause you to require an immediate change of underwear. Then there’s the cute ones that make you laugh rather than shake with fear. Well the monsters in this great game from ‘Microgaming’ fall into the latter category.
This is a five-reel game that has a total of 25 paylines. That’s a fixed amount so you simply have to decide what your stake is going to be for each spin of the reels. This varies between £0.25 and £250.
The background to the reels isn’t that thrilling. It’s a blue background on which you can just about make out drawings of the various monsters in the game. The actual symbols in the game are a bit better thankfully. They are rather cartoonish which is ok in my book. We get a variety of monsters in different colours, namely green, yellow, red, green and purple. If you can get 25 of the red monsters on an active payline that pays you 1600x your line bet. How on earth do you get 25 of them? All will be revealed shortly.
There’s also the ten to Ace playing card symbols that have a colourful look but do nothing to enhance the theme of the game.
The wild symbol in this game is the So Many Monsters logo. It won’t scare you when it substitutes for other symbols to get you some winning combinations. Also look out for the green eyeball which is the scatter symbol in this game.
To ensure that you know as much as possible about the game you need to access the paytable. This has all the information that you need about the rules and how much each winning combination pays. Also have some free games to see the game in action.
It’s also possible to set an autoplay if you fancy some time away from the screen. This can be for between ten and 100 automated spins. you can set a customized selection, for example having the automated spins stop when a certain win is achieved, handy if you want to protect a good win.
If you get a winning combination that is entirely made up of the monster symbols then they suddenly split into five smaller ones (who said ‘Gremlins’?) Now this could mean you get 25 matching symbols and get a massive win.
To get some free spins you need to get at least three of the green eyeball scatter symbols anywhere in view. That stipulation doesn’t really matter here regarding your stake because the paylines are fixed. You get between eight and 16 free spins but there’s a choice to make. You have to choose a monster and the lower the number the free spins, the higher the potential win per line. It’s also possible to get more free spins if the eyeballs arrive again.
Another good slot from Microgaming even if it is a bit similar to the So Much Candy and So Much Sushi slot games. The free spins round can be profitable whatever your choice is. It’s definitely worth a play though.
