‘Behind Every Win is a Monster’ – NextGen Gaming
Monster Wins is a 4-row, 5-reel, ‘1024 ways’ video slot. Each monster symbol appears to be hovering midair against a starry night sky with alien terrain just below. Both the soundtrack & sound effects are reminiscent of arcade games with synthesized tones that are very catchy. Animations such as the twinkling of stars, tentacles waving and exploding confetti enhance the overall visual quality which is excellent.
Monster Wins displays values for Total Bet, Bet, Win and Balance along the bottom of the slot screen. To select a Total Cash Bet that ranges from 50p – £100, choose a Bet ranging from 1p – £2 at Royal Panda. The coin pays displayed in the Paytable remain fixed despite changes made to the Bet. All wins are calculated by multiplying the coin pay of a winning combination by the Bet.
This slot has 12 monstrous symbols every colour of the rainbow. Monster Wins offers 2 special symbols including a Wild and a Bonus Scatter. The Wild can substitute for any regular symbol. The Bonus Scatter awards its own pays with a symbol match of 3 – 5 and is involved in triggering Free Games. Monster Wins has 10 regular symbols consisting of colorful monsters of various shapes and sizes. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Boss Monster, Pink Monster, Orange, Big Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Small Red, Purple and Light Blue.
Monster Wins’ gameplay is left to right along 1024 paylines with the exception of the Scatter symbol which does not follow along any payline. Get 2+ Boss Monsters or 3+ of any other symbol (except the Wild) to form a winning combination. Single payline profits appear to be dismally low likely to compensate for the numerous ways to win. To profit along a single payline, get 3+ Scatter symbols or 5+ Orange, Pink or Boss Monsters. However, keep in mind that multiple wins along differing lines can be added together for a larger total win. In addition, the Bonuses assist in maintaining the overall RTP.
All pays are multiplied by the ‘Bet’ making the Bonus Scatter the highest paying symbol of Monster Wins. It shows a value of (2500, 500, 100) in the Paytable giving this online slot the potential to award up to £5000 with a 5 of a kind match. The highest paying regular symbol is the Boss Monster symbol which shows a value of (100, 50, 25, 5) giving Monster Wins the potential to award up to £200 with a 5 of a kind match. Play at Royal Panda to win over £102,000!
