Monster Mania is one of those Microgaming slots which appear to be inspired by the Monsters series of movies, a popular animation film being at the origin of quite a few games that have this particular theme. You’re going to encounter all kinds of cute and not very scary monsters on the reels of this game, coming in all shapes and sizes, with one or two eyes and most of the time with a smile or some sort of crooked grin on their faces. As its features, the game will give you a scatter symbol and a wild. You have 5 reels with only 9 paylines, while the big payouts will reach $2,000.
Betting and Prizes
Among the decisions which you will have to make in Monster Mania, there is the choice of the number of paylines and the value of the coins. There is only one coin available for each line, so your wagers will have 1 to 9 coins in them, depending on the number of active lines. You can have a coin denomination between $0.25 and $2, so the full betting range of the game is between $0.25 and $18.
The top payout is at only 1,000 coins, which could mean a top prize of $2,000 if you had the maximum coin value that round. You can get a payout of $1,800 as the second best prize, from the scatter.
Monster Mania Slot Features
The game doesn’t do much to convince you when it comes to its features. There is a wild symbol first, a scorpion like monster with the WILD logo in its mouth. This one is going to be used as a substitute for other symbols, of most types, but not for a scatter. The wild doesn’t seem to be able to pay its own prizes.
As for the scatter, the symbol shows you a monster with a huge brain. It’s called a Scatter Brain, and it will be used from whatever position it might land in. You will get paid as long as a minimum of three Scatter Brains are present in the game. The prizes you land this way are at 10x, 50x or 100x the wager value.
Theme & Design
The monster theme is front and center in this game, but there is a second part of it, one which focuses more on fruits. The low paying symbols are with those fruits, having bananas, grapes, watermelon, oranges and apples among them. The better paying icons and the feature symbols get those monsters, a total of 7 types, in different colors, shapes and sizes.
Monster Mania looks slot like a cute game, one which should prove popular enough among players. It doesn’t offer much otherwise though.
