Monster Pop Slot (Betsoft)
Monster Pop is the latest release from the gaming giant, Betsoft. This slot is a monster-themed slot machine; however, it doesn’t give that scary-monster look.
Set upon a large gaming area of 5x5 reels, Monster Pop works by creating clusters of symbols, as opposed to the usual matching symbols on active betting lines. The slot is Medium in volatility, and among the features that I came across are free spins, re-spins, Flaming Spheres, wilds, and a few Monster Cloner symbols.
Betting and Prizes
Monster Pop allows you to select the betting price that you would like to use per each spin. However, this has to be between $0.25 and $250 per spin.
For the payout, the highest that you can get with Monster Pop is 2,270x the stake. If using the highest possible stake, you can walk home with $56,765.
However, I’m shocked by Betsoft’s decisions to offer an RTP of 94.67% for this slot, which is way below what most modern slot games offer.
Monster Pop Slot Features
The game comes on 5x5 reels and a total of 25 active symbols. To create winning, Monster Pop uses some matching symbols that help it to form clusters. The game area can expand to as high as 13x13 symbols.
The Monster Cloner is one of the major features of this slot game. It assists you to expand the game area, and will even enable you to add a new column and/or row. It does that by duplicating the existing ones. Additionally, this feature also can add wild symbols to the gaming area, which improves the performance of the game.
To enjoy some free spins, you will be required to get at least 3 Flaming Spheres on the game’s reels. If additional Flaming Spheres appear, you will be able to re-trigger this feature.
You also get the Monster Fury feature, and in most cases, this one is triggered during losing spins. It works by bringing about a cascade, which has the potential to bring new wins.
Theme & Design
The beautiful monster-themed design is not a new concept as we have already seen a lot of games using it.
With Monster Pop, several features make the game quite fun. The wilds, some Flaming Spheres, as well as several monsters (these appear in all shapes with some having 1 to 3 eyes, funny, star-shaped, silly devil-like, etc).
Some try to appear scary but generally, none of these creatures can give you goosebumps.
The concept may lack in originality, but Betsoft has tried in the design and general layout of the Monster Pop slot game.
Monster Pop is an average slot game, but one that may not be fun to heavy wagers, given the low top payout and an equally low RTP that the developer has announced for the slot.
Feature-wise, Betsoft has done quite well with this slot; however, there is nothing to excite a lot of players with, especially those looking for a slot game that offers good payout, and not just fun.
