Monster Wins is powered by NextGen Gaming and is a 5 reel, 4 row, 1,024 ways to win slot. With 50 coins per spin, you can play from just 50p per spin to as much as £100 per spin. Available to play across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it has an obvious monster theme.

With alien monsters on the reels, you are taken to outer space to a tiny planet inhabited by eccentric alien monsters. Aesthetically, it’s very colourful with cartoon-style graphics as the monsters are somewhat cute. The fun and exciting game is full of shenanigans as power and status amongst the monsters is measured by the number of eyes and tentacle reach.

The wild symbol only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. In terms of the symbols, the highest value one is the 5 eyed monster (Boss Monster) which gives you only 100 times your stake for 5 on a payline. However, the scatter gives you 2,500 times your line bet for 5.

Talking of the scatter, the symbol with bonus on it, 3 or more will trigger the Boss Monster Free Games feature – you will receive 3 free spins. However, a stack of Boss Monster symbols is held on reel 1 for the duration of the feature. I’ve managed to get 4 fully stacked Boss Monster symbols on 1 free spins which resulted in a 350 times stake win.

There is also the Unleash The Boss Monster feature – this is played when the Boss Monster lands in all 4 positions on the first reel in the base game. Additional Boss Monster symbols are then revealed to add to your winning potential – this feature appears quite often giving decent results.

Monster Wins is a decent game from NextGen Gaming but the variance is in the low to medium range – you will trigger the 2 bonus features pretty often but normally you will get wins in the free spins feature of about 25 times your stake. If you like the theme, So Many Monsters by Microgaming is an option. However, I recommend you play one of NextGen Gaming’s more volatile offerings with Cash Stampede a good choice.
