If you thought unwrapping a bar of chocolate was a mundane and functional affair then prepare to be pleasantly surprised when you play Choco Munch, a candy-themed online slot with a simplistic design but some intricate gameplay. It’s developed by Playtech and it also comes complete with a progressive jackpot to keep things interesting.
Choco Munch is a five reel slot with three rows and just ten fixed paylines; the reels are actually a bar of chocolate which must be unwrapped and there are various treats stuck to the upper edges. There’s a big blue monster on the right hand side and a smoke-belching chocolate factory in the background.
There are six theme-related symbols including the Chocolate Monster and five coloured treats – blue, orange, purple, red and green. Chocolate-covered Q, K and A make up the lower values.
There are no wild symbols here but the Chocolate Monster has some extra abilities which we’ll describe below.
Choco Munch Bonus Game
As you are playing this game the aim is to unwrap four layers of the chocolate bar and you can see which layer you’re on in the top right hand corner. Winning combinations will remove the wrapping from those symbol positions and once a whole layer has been cleared you will win a prize and move on to the next level.
When all four levels have been cleared you get an invitation to the Munch Factory; here you play a picking game in which you get five chances to find the chocolate bars from the items on offer. The more you find, the higher the final prize/multiplier and if you find all five you will win the progressive jackpot prize.
Once you’ve completed this stage the bar is wrapped up again and you start from level one.
The Chocolate Monster can whisk you straight to the Munch Factory if you land a screen full of him and he may also emerge and eat a position if it’s the only one remaining.
Choco Munch Online Slot Playing Tips
The progressive jackpot is paid out proportionately depending on your stake – for example:
- 0.50% of maximum stake pays 0.50% of the jackpot
- 100% of maximum stake pays out entire jackpot
…so bear this in mind when deciding on your bet level.
Choco Munch may look simple but it conceals some complex gameplay which should keep you coming back to this game for some time. The constant game progression is an appealing idea and it comes with an RTP of 95.00%.
