Imagine for a minute if you will a large greenhouse which has fallen into disrepair; a faint light bulb occasionally shines into the darkness to reveal a scene overtaken by wild carnivorous plants and creepy crawlies. This is the theme of Munchers, an online slot from NextGen Gaming which may have taken some inspiration from The Little Shop Of Horrors.
Munchers is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty five paylines. That grim greenhouse is the setting for this game and lush undergrowth surrounds the reels; the solitary lightbulb swings from the plastic ceiling and for some reason there’s a bucket hanging on the left hand side.
The four high value symbols are a pair of gardening gloves, a crossed fork/trowel, a big orange spider and a red-eyed bug of some sort. 9, 10, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values and each is under attack by a small sprig of vegetation.
The wild symbol is clearly the massive plant from The Little Shop Of Horrors and substitutes for everything except the scatter symbol; that’s a red and green watering can and it activates the main feature.
Munchers Free Spins
This is the only extra game and it’s triggered by landing three or more of the watering can scatter symbols anywhere in view.
You will receive ten free spins and during this round the wild symbol becomes an expanded wild; the plant will emerge from the pots and turn the reels above completely wild.
Unfortunately there is no multiplier for any wins during this feature and it’s not possible to re-trigger them by landing more scatters.
Any win can be gambled by clicking the ‘Gamble’ button below the reels; you can try to double or quadruple that win by correctly guessing the colour or suit of the next card drawn. You are limited to five correct guesses in a row.
Munchers Online Slot Playing Tips
We would always advise to steer clear of the gamble feature; it adds an unnecessary level of extra risk.
Munchers certainly looks nice enough with some amusing graphics and sound effects. The big wins seem to be in the free spins round so be patient and wait for those scatter symbols to land.
