If there’s one thing that becomes a bit of a drag these days, it’s the number of monsters everywhere. In the supermarket, on the bus, hanging round bars and running our countries. Ok, that’s a bit dramatic, just the latter. But Microgaming does think we have a problem, so much so they made a slot about it called So Many Monsters.
Presented over a 5x3 setup with a modest 25 paylines this slot shows what monstrous developer Microgaming can really do, it’s stunning. Its part of a trio that we’re going to be reviewing at the same time, so keep an eye out for So Much Sushi and So Much Candy reviews close to this one on our site.
Looks pretty scary to me
This slot has an appeal about it, the monsters are relatable and cheeky, and they have real character. Amongst the gruesome clan you have Frogmosher, Eyez, Squideye, Baxter and RavtonStein – I mean, could you think of any better names for monsters, seriously!
Get three or more matches of these guys across the reals for the Many More Monsters bonus to trigger. Monsters can split up to five times for increased chances of winning a more sizeable prize. Lucky players might even see a 25-symbol winning combo, and the whacking great win that will follow.
The spins are free
The scatter is the eyeball symbol and landing three or more will get you into the free spins feature. During this feature you’ll be introduced to five monsters, each one carrying a number of free spins. You can choose the number of spins by picking a monster but be aware that the more spins you chose the less winning potential you’ll have.
Eight spins are optimum as the prize could reach 35,000 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent, not a bad night’s work. Whichever monster you do end up choosing will replace all the other monsters. The free spins can be reactivated within the feature should you get three more eyeball symbols.
Visually So Many Monsters is a fantastic game, and the soundtrack is tight and well thought-through too. Variance is medium to high, we found those free spins a bit tricky to get going, but once they did, we actually had a record office win. For those seasoned players who are not afraid of a bit of risk, this one’s a potential goldmine.
