Munchers is not by any means your typical online slot theme. It’s fun, it’s quirky and to some extent it’s even kind of gruesome. This title takes place in the garden, but it’s not exactly a gardener’s paradise; in fact, it’s probably quite the opposite. Creepy vines and lianas have clearly taken over the greenhouse and appear to be running the place now – and wait until you lay eyes on the flesh-eating plants that grow here! These are the munchers (hence the title) and they are no joke. They are creepy, fierce and there’s a pot with one of these under each one of the reels. In addition, there are a few snacks for them on the reels, too. One is a cheeky-looking fly and the other a giant spider.
Now as for the layout, it features the common 5 reel by 3 row grid. It also comes with a fixed number of 25 active paylines., and this means that you won’t have the ability to regulate them or set them to a more desirable number. Stakes are reasonable, though: the minimum bet will set players back 25p per single spin., and if you want to try venturing higher up the betting range, you can wager a maximum bet of £250 per spin.
Where to Play
Luckily, there’s a Gamble Feature to aid the lonely Freespins Bonus. That way you can always choose to spice up your gaming experience if you get tired of the base game. The side game on offer is a simple one as usual and will provide the opportunity to double or quadruple your prize.
Look out for the Munchers symbol as it is Wild, and also the most lucrative icon on these reels. You can expect it to land in pretty much any position anywhere across the screen, and with its help you can potentially pocket up to a very nice 5,000 coins. On top of that, though, the Wild will be able to substitute for any of the other symbols on the reels. The one exception is the game’s Scatter icon.
The Scatter can also land anywhere on the reels, only in order for it to have some real value to you, you will need to land at least 3 of these symbols at the same time. This will trigger the only special feature and this game’s main attraction – the Freespins feature. As a result, you will receive a total of 10 free spins.
And here is where those pots we mentioned earlier come into play. As we pointed out, there is one under each of the five reels, and during the Freespins feature, any one of these can randomly release a Muncher onto the respective reel to cover it completely. Hence, this will be a Wild reel. Keep in mind, however, that these 10 free spins are all you get, as you cannot retrigger the feature.
Munchers is an entertaining offering despite the fact that the setup is really very basic. The graphics are very appropriate for this theme, and we found the animations to be pretty fun as well. All in all, it’s a nice medium variance slot game by NextGen.
