Microgaming are spitting out slot after slot as we try to keep up. October 4 Monster Wheel is coming to a casino near you
Yeah we know. We’ve been whining a bit about Microgaming lately, calling them lazy and too prone to recycling old games. But this one at least has some freshness to it even if it’s not revolutionary in any sense.
The monster theme is a bit fun with colorful characters and a nice ska/rock type of music that’s got some dracula vibe thing to it. It’s by no means a new concept and it does feel like it was brought into the casino world straight from Cartoon Network.
What’s different about this slot is the play area and the fact that you can choose between 128 and 288 lines.
If you go for 128 lines you will have a 2-4-2-4-2 column play area and if you choose 288 lines you’ll get a 4-3-2-3-4 layout. The cost of the spins increases if you go from 128 to 288. Bet range with 128 lines goes from €0.20 to €10 while 288 lines cost between €0.30 to €15.[table “13” not found /]
The lower paying symbols are made out of the typical A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 and the look of them is exactly the same as used on other MG slots such as Dragonz. The Wild symbol is the game logo and the scatter symbol concists of a red gas can. Premium symbols meanwhile are the Werewolf, She-Devil, Frankenstein, Water Creature, Zombie and Drakula.
To trigger the bonus 3 gas cans are required on reel 1, 3 and 5.
In the bonus you are left with 3 choices. Either you go with 12 free spins and 12x multiplier, 6 free spins with 4x or 3 free spins with a massive 8x multiplier. This means there’s potential for some monstrous wins! Wait, there’s more…for every gas can you land in the bonus you get awarded one more extra spin.
Rtp has at this point not been made available yet (Microgaming, you really need to inform us better) but we do know the max win on this is 7680x which is pretty sick! This is possible to hit in the 8x bonus. In other words Monster Wheels has about the same potential as NetEnt’s Jungle Spirit (7678x).
