Boogie Monsters immediately caught our attention when it first hit our screens, not least because it felt like not only were the players having fun, but the developers were too. Microgaming has been guilty of hitting lazy periods with their releases, putting together a theme and graphics in an afternoon at most before packing in the most rudimentary of features – just look at the likes of Bikini Party. However, when they are on song, you can really see why they are the biggest online and mobile slots developer in the world, and Boogie Monsters is the perfect example.
What to Expect
For a developer that rarely breaks tradition when it comes to betting setups, the impact of Boogie Monsters is immediate. There are no playing card icons and the Boogie Monsters themselves are all well-designed, not to mention fun to look at, and forty win lines have to be considered as being out of the ordinary especially on a conventional board.
A wild card helps things along, but once again players are likely to be more concerned, not to mention impressed, by the fact that there are two different bonus features. The simpler of the two involves bats and sees players looking to land three or more of them adjacently on the board. First up is an instant win, and it is closely followed by a pick bonus that takes place in a darkened room. You get as many picks as the number of triggering symbols, and the goal here is the rather unsurprising task of winning as much cash as possible.
Of far more interest to us, being fans of the feature in question as we are, is the free spins round. Three or more potions on the board at the same time will trigger one of the more impressive Microgaming free spins rounds that we have seen in recent times, with thirteen free spins being awarded. That may not be a massive amount, especially if you land five scatters, but it fits with the theme. More importantly, every win during the bonus round is worth five times as much as normal, and the fact that players can land themselves another batch of spins within the round and with no limits makes it far more than meets the eye.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Boogie Monsters is simply a very well put together game, and while it makes use of some of the most tried and tested bonus features in all of slots gaming, it does so with aplomb. Between the theme, enhanced win lines and exciting free spins, not to mention the pick bonus, this is Microgaming at its finest, and they have clearly put in as much effort as they would on one of their branded releases. The game might well remain a hidden gem, but if you have never played before then we would definitely recommend looking to unearth it on one of our recommended mobile apps.
