The Monster Mania video slots game presents a unique view on the world of monsters and combines colourful animations with light and cheery sound effects to provide an overall cheerful playing experience.
The slots game was created and released by Microgaming, and offers a playing experience with five reels and nine pay lines. The game uses illustrations of both monsters and fruits, both shiny and colourful, and many of the monsters are represented as cuddly creatures rather than nightmarish ones.
The Game Basics
Monster Mania is available as both a download and instant-play browser slots game, and may be played both for real and as a free version.
The maximum jackpot of the game offers one thousand coins. This is the highest amount that can be won in a single spin, and players can achieve this by landing five of the bug-eyed hairballs on any active pay line. The game does not offer a progressive jackpot, but there are various bonus features available.
In order to begin playing, players must select the coin denomination they wish to play with, the number of pay lines they wish to bet on, and the number of coins they wish to bet per pay line. The maximum number of coins they may bet per pay line is nine. Players can choose to make their betting selection manually or they can select the bet max feature, which will allow them to bet the maximum amount possible in one go and head straight to spinning the reels. Players who wish to sit back and watch the game may also enable the auto play feature, in which they will make their betting selections and then select a certain number of spins. The reels will then spin automatically for the duration of the spins selected.
Symbols of the game include various types of monsters as well as other icons. These are both cuddly and grotesque, and include a monster with one giant eye, a snake, a cross-eyed monster, a fish, a bug-eyed hairball, an octopus, a scatter brain, as well as various fruit symbols such as a half-eaten apple, bananas, grapes, and slices of watermelon.
Wild Monster Symbol
The wild symbol in Monster Mania is the octopus monster, which holds the word ‘wild’ in his mouth. The wild monster symbol may be used to substitute any of the other symbols, except for the scatter symbol which launches a bonus reward. By substituting other symbols, the wild monster symbol can help players to complete otherwise incomplete winning pay lines and to form the best possible winning combinations. The wild monster symbol does not act as a multiplier.
Monster Mania Scatter Symbol
In the Monster Mania video slots game, the scatter symbol is represented by the scatter brain. If players land three or more of these scatter brain symbols anywhere on the reels, they will immediately be rewarded with one hundred coins, and this will also activate a bonus feature where they will receive a certain multiplier.
Depending on how many scatter brain symbols were landed, players will be rewarded with different multipliers. If players land three scatter brain symbols, they will be rewarded with a ten time multiplier. If players land four scatter brain symbols, they will be rewarded with a fifty time multiplier. Finally, if players land five scatter brain symbols, they will be rewarded with a one hundred time multiplier.
