Meerkat Mayhem is an original game, primarily as it is packed with meerkats doing all sorts of crazy and unpredictable adventures.
The game features meerkats sunbathing, riding bikes, getting married and even a King Meerkat sitting on his throne, as players will notice from those mentioned above, this game certainly airs on the side of surreal visually.
At its heart, Meerkat Mayhem is a simple little slot machine with five reels and thirty paylines. Graphically the game is loaded with meerkats and is a low variance slot, meaning players will observe regular payments of small amounts paid out.
Symbols in Meerkat Mayhem
The wild icon in the game is the devilish little meerkat, with even the wild feature in this game carrying a unique visual presence. Saying that, the little devil doesn’t form combinations for players like in most other slot games, instead, he turns random other icons into wild symbols that throw up endless winning possibilities.
The Devilish Meerkat wild symbol is only one of the bonuses at hand. Other offerings include receiving up to six random wilds on the reels at once rather than only one, breaking away from the norm in the process. Six wilds will increase players chances of generating a winning combination.
Meerkat Mayhem also has a King Meerkat icon acting as the game’s scatter. Landing three King Meerkats applies an x2 multiplier to the payline, with an x3 multiplier for four scatter icons obtained and a very bountiful x5 multiplier being used for landing five scatter icons.
When players play Meerkat Mayhem, they must line up at least three of the same icons on an active payline from left to right to form a win. The only symbol that pays out no matter where it lands is the scatter icon.
The amount in the paytable located at the screen’s bottom is then multiplied by their bet per line (the coin value). Pressing the spin button or start the auto spin round to begin playing the game. Using auto spin will turn the reels for a select number of times.
Whilst it may not appeal to everyone, Meerkat Mayhem is both appealing and delightful. It should prove exceptional fun for casual gamers and newbies, mainly due to its light-hearted tone and animal driven theme.
The two wild icons and scatter bonuses help players boost their winnings, that acts as an incentive in what is a mainly appeasing online slots title. Meerkat Mayhem is a game that players will either love or hate, but that’s better than feeling nothing.
