”A whack Halloween video slots meets the races and it comes with a delectable free spins feature.”
Come to think of it it’s really good. The slots is of medium variance volatility plus it contains a ‘Choose Your Ways’, wilds, scatters and a free spins bonus feature. Once the free spins mode is played players have a choice between 3, 6 or 12 free spins with multiplier wins that range from 2x, 4x up to 8x. Suffice to say you’re in for some loads of Halloween fun and some quality treats!
Central to Monster Wheels is its ‘Pick How Many Ways’ you want to win feature. Which is the better one to pick: 128 or 228 ways to win? To be honest it really doesn’t matter since payouts are the same across the board. If you have the cash to spare you’re more than welcome to try out both.
The slots offers a theoretical house edge of 3.96% or an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.04%. Paying symbols on the reels are cards from 9 to Ace, Frankenstein, she-devil, Dracula, water creature, a zombie, scatters (gas) and the monster wheel logo which is the wild.
The amount of coins that can be wagered on a single spin is 20 to 30 while the maximum wager is £15. The theme is ‘cute’ and the slots is laced with some fairly good notes or so to speak. If you play with 128 ways to win the average bet is 20 pence up to £10 and if you play with 288 ways you’ll have to fork out 30 pence up to £15 per spin.
You can decide whenever you want to switch ways, the ways to win can be as follow:
128 ways to win over a 2-4-2-4-2 reel format
228 ways to win over a 4-3-2-3-4 reel format
”In the free spins mode the Gas scatter transforms into a Free Spin gas can – hit 1 during the feature, 1 free spin will be added. Land 2, 2 free spins will be awarded. Hit 3 of them not only will the feature be re-triggered but you’ll win 24 free spins with a 2x multiplier, 12 free spins with a 4x multiplier or 6 free spins with an 8x multiplier.”
Even though Monster Wheels is decked out with only one bonus feature it’s kinda special. Players can decide whether they want to go ‘High’ with just 3 free spins at 8x multiplier of they can pick 12 free spins with a multiplier of 2x. The free spins mode is initiated when 3 Gas scatters pitch on reels 1, 3 or 5. You’re given a choice of 3x free spins (pick one):
- 12 free spins with a 2x multiplier
- 6 free spins where the multiplier of 4x
- 3 free spins with a multiplier of 8x
Microgaming always rolls out quality monster-themed slots for Halloween, Monster Wheels slots is no exception to this rule. We didn’t give the game a top rating simply because it only contains one bonus feature and play can be a tad ‘tacky’ at times.
However, the free spins feature with its 3 free spins options is top draw since it spoils you for choice with multipliers of 2x, 4x right up to 8x! The game will keep you entertained for hours on end. Monster Wheels is another great addition to an already impressive Microgaming slots library.
