Bright & colourful

A cartoon nuclear reactor is the setting for the Monster Meltdown slot. The basic set up is a 5 reel, 3 row machine. Winning combinations are created scatter style by landing 5 or more of the same monster anywhere on the reels. You’ll see 7 different alien characters. The best of them is the green monster with the big blue brain. Land 3 of these for a payout of 2 times your stake. Land 15 of them and you’ll pocket 500 times your stake.

Expanding Board feature

Below the reels you’ll see an animated robot. When he pulls the lever on the right-hand side of the reels, he will expand the game engine. This can reach 6 reels wide and 6 rows high. You could also hear an alarm sound. This happens randomly and signals the award of 2 re-spins on the expanded reels. This is known as the Expanding Board feature.

Symbol Switch feature

The Symbol Switch feature is triggered when the robot pulls the lever on the left side of the reels – 1 of the symbols will appear in the radioactive vat. Up to 12 symbols on the reels will then transform into the same symbol that is in the radioactive vat. This increases your chances of winning.

Expanded Symbol Swap feature

It’s possible to land the expanding reels and the symbol switch at the same time – the Expanded Symbol Swap feature. When this happens, the monster in the radioactive vat will be the highest paying symbol.

Unusual but entertaining

With its scatter pays, expanding reels and transforming symbols the gameplay In Monster Meltdown is quite unusual. Design wise, it’s decent enough. The cartoon visuals are simple but nicely done, backed by a sci-fi style backing track. The range of extras on offer here isn’t massive so it can feel a little repetitive.

As far as variance goes, were in the medium range with top wins of 500 times your stake on each spin. It’s not as explosive as it might have been but if you’re after a slot that offers something a little unorthodox, then you’ll find that in Monster Meltdown. I also suggest you try Playzido’s Dumb and Dumber: Road Trip to Aspen which also has plenty of bonus features and possible payouts of 5,000 times stake per free spin.
