Just like the name insinuates it, BetSoft’s latest release Monster Pop is about some pretty cute little monsters. It is a 5 reel slot, with 5 rows and no classic paylines. The wins are formed in a cluster which raises the odds of them happening. With a fun cutesy design and some very exciting features, the game will for sure be approved by many players.
As one of the better providers out there, BetSoft is known for its creativity and innovation. They have proved that yet another time with this release. The theme is not a common one which is a plus from the start and the providers have also done a great job with the overall appearance of it.
The game offers some pretty amazing graphics with the main scene of events taking place on the planet of the little monsters. It appears to be night time since everything has a purple tint to it. There are some rocks and plants on the ground with caves framing it all. It is a very pleasing picture to the eye especially when combined with the cartoon-like symbols.
The symbols are very cheerful and all include different colored little adorable monsters. None of them are scary ones as they belong more to the cute fuzzy kind. The soundtrack adds to the theme as well. It is also very cheerful, especially with the cute monster sound effects that are hilarious.
The payouts should impress as they go up to 2270 times the win in a single spin. Considering that it is a medium volatility game, players are in for quite a surprising game. The winning combinations form in a cluster which makes the game so much more fun and unpredictable. The betting range is quite wide as well with the minimum bet placed at 0,25 and the maximum at 250 coins per spin. The only downside to this game is the 94,67% RTP which is quite low and could have been a lot better.
A theme as interesting as this one has to be honored with some ‘out of this world’ features which the providers managed to bring to the table. Firstly the game offers a wild symbol that appears as oracle eyes that replaces all other symbols in the game except the scatter.
The game also features a Monster Cloner symbol that clones itself vertically, horizontally or both ways. It also resets on every spin. This allows the grid to expand and become up to 13x13 positions large. It basically duplicates an entire reel or rows adding a wild symbol to increase the chances of a winning combination.
Then there is the Flaming Sphere Free Spins feature that is triggered when the player lands at least 3 flaming sphere symbols. This will award the player with 7 free spins and 1 additional free spin for every additional triggering symbol. Depending on the size of the grid players can win up to 17 free spins this way.
The little monsters might cause a riot if no winning combination has occurred. This triggers the Monster Fury feature where the monsters can create a Cloner Bomb and add Monster Cloners to the reels or they will run across the reels and re-group in order to create a bigger win.
The game has definitely delivered as promised. The cartoon-like design is amazing and will appeal to many players. The features are very creative and show some extra high winning potential. On the other hand, the game offers a very low RTP which is the only concern here, but considering the volatility, it may be overlooked.
