The wombat says: Remember those scary-ass monsters that lived under the bed or in your wardrobe when you were a mini wombat? You know, the ones that scared the bejesus out of you in the middle of the night?
Well thankfully the extra terrestrial monsters here brought to us by NextGen are nothing like that at all – in fact they are a thoroughly decent bunch. These characters are more in the cute mode – more Fluffy Favourites slot than Psycho (now that’s a scary slot!)
They’re much more likely to put a big old smile on your chops than give you the heebie jeebies – especially as most of them could help you land some seriously chunky payouts. Let’s board the Starship Mega Wins Wombat fans, and head to a galaxy of spinning reels far far away…
Look and Feel
To be totally honest we’re really sure if they’re monsters or aliens, as they appear to live on a different planet. The reels in this slot are see through and are set on what looks like an alien moon complete with curved stalagmites and the night sky behind it brimming with stars. This is classic slots designing along the lines of our Striker Goes Wild! game: bright, cheerful and fun.
Your friendly monsters are funny-looking bunch make no mistake, and are as colourful as you can get – plus the electro space soundtrack isn’t too annoying either. Not bad.
Monster Wins is a 5 reel slot with 4 rows, but there are no standard pay-lines in this NextGen game (head for something like the Wu Xing slot or Tomb Raider is that’s more your bag). Instead it offers 1024 ways to win. All you need to remember is that landing at least 3x identical symbols on adjacent reels from left to right will guarantee you a win. So say ‘goodbye’ to pesky pay-lines!
The minimum wager here is €0.50, while the maximum bet is €100 so there’s a good range of bet levels for both the high rollers and the more frugal slot fans among you.
Your symbols on the reels include a whole host of daft brightly coloured monsters with loads of eyes. As a rule of thumb, the bigger they are, the more cash they are worth…
The Wild symbol in the game will land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and will replace all other symbols on your reels (except for the Scatter) to help you make extra winning combos.
Meanwhile, the Bonus Scatter is represented by the symbol that has ‘Bonus’ on it.
Get 3x of these cheeky icons in a row, and it’s Free Spins time for you Wombat fans!
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Unleash The Boss Monster
If a stack of 4x Boss Monster symbols land on reel 1 (he’s got 5 googly eyes so you can’t really miss him), a whole load of other symbols will be transformed into the Boss, too. This hopefully will result in some ‘Monster Wins’ Wombat fans. Ha!
Boss Monster Free Spins
3x or more of the bonus Scatters unlocks the free spins bonus, and will give you 3 free spins, during which a great big stack of Boss Monster symbols will remain sticky on reel 1. Nice!
And with a bit of luck, you might end up with more than just 3 free spins, as this bonus can also be retriggered at any time. Hurrah!
Sadly the payouts in the base game weren’t quite as good as we’d expected from a ‘1024 ways to win’ slot, in fact there were very few intergalactic wins Wombat fans. Still, the game is a fun enough, and if you manage to ‘Unleash The Boss Monste’r frequently then you’ll make more than enough wins. Enjoy!
