Monster Wheels is powered by Microgaming and is a 5 reel, 128 to 288 payline slot which can be played from 30p to £15 per spin on devices including laptops, PCs, smartphones and tablets. This monster racing themed game allows you to choose from 2 column and ways to win options and offers you 3 free spins features.

This game has a fun and playful feel to it as monsters take on monsters in this racing themed offering. Symbols on the reels including regular A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as 6 different monsters – Werewolf, She-Devil, Frankenstein, Water Creature, Zombie, and Dracula. The Monster Wheels logo is the wild and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.

The first thing you’ll notice about Monster Wheels is the unusual reel layout – you can pick between 4-3-2-3-4 column reels with 288 ways to win and 2-4-2-4-2 column reels with 128 ways to win. Playing with 128 ways to win will cost you 20p to £10 per spin whilst playing with 288 ways to win will cost you between 30p and £15 per spin.

In terms of bonus features, you have the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 Gas can scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously. You then have the choice of 3 free spins and multiplier options:

  • 12 free spins with a 2x multiplier
  • 6 free spins with a 4x multiplier
  • 3 free spins with an 8x multiplier

During the feature, the Gas can scatter transforms into a Free Spin gas can – if you get 1 during the feature, you will get 1 additional free spin. If you get 2, you will get 2 free spins. If you get 3 however, you will retrigger the feature giving you a potential 24 free spins with a 2x multiplier, 12 free spins with a 4x multiplier or 6 free spins with an 8x multiplier.

Monster Wheels is a fun and fast-paced slot which has the potential to payout a whopping 7,680 times your stake – that’s in the Free Spins feature with the 8x multiplier. I found it to be variable when it comes to variance as the 3 free spins and multiplier options vary in terms of volatility. Overall, a good game from Microgaming. If you like monsters, NextGen Gaming’s Creepy Castle is recommended.
