When we compare Monster Pop to Spring Tails, the latter real online money slots’ jackpot is a whopper of 300,364x ($150,182) your stake while Monster Pop’s is a mere 2,270x ($56,765) your stake! See the difference? Spring Tails is high variance, and Monster Pop is medium variance. Therefore, the latter offers more winning spins, but the pays are relatively small with the odd big win now and again.
Bets per spin start at $0.25 up to $250. Monster Pop is compatible with mobile phones (iOS, Androids, and tablets).
The graphics and animations in Monster Pop are colorful and eye-popping. It sports a monster-theme, to be honest, we really can’t call them ‘monsters’ because they’re kinda cute. The action in Monster Pop takes place on a 5×5 reel structure that can expand up to 13×13. Apart from is gorgeous visuals, it throws in a Cluster Pays mechanic with Free Spins, Monster Cloner symbols, and Wilds.
The Cascading System kicks in when three or more symbols appear in a winning combination. Winning symbols drop from the reels while new ones replace them. Up to 25 different colored monsters appear on the reels, as well as the Flaming Sphere scatter. When the Cluster Pays mechanic erupts, the reels expand to 13×13 symbols. And, just for good measure, Betsoft also throws in a Wild. Monster Pop’s RTP or theoretical return to player percentage is 94.67%. The RTP is giving us mixed signals because it showcases all the characteristics of a volatile slot. And, it’s below the Betsoft standard of 96%.
Let’s face it Monster Pop’s jackpot (non-progressive) of $56,756 won’t make you a rich man or woman, but it sure has a lot of moving parts! In the next section, we’re going to put them under our telescope a bit.
You’ll trigger the Monster Fury Re-spins feature on a non-winning spin. It also benefits from the Cascading feature. Every time a monster appears, they transform low-value symbols into high-value symbols.
The leading player in Monster Pop is the Free Spins feature. If you’re wondering why, because the Free Spins houses the slot machine’s jackpot. You’ll trigger the Free Spins feature when 3 Flaming Spheres pitch. It doesn’t matter where the land just as long as they show up.
As hard as we tried, we just couldn’t warm to Monster Pop. It’s one of those online free slots that’s beautiful to look at but it has the personality of Chucky. We do acknowledge the fact that Betsoft tossed in a Cluster Pays System, Re-spins, even a Free Spins feature, regrettably, they don’t work as a collective whole. Not to mention the RTP of 94.67% – Hmm, Chucky indeed.
