Remember when Michael Jackson shot the Thriller video and shook the world? Well, the guys at Microgaming have gone down the same spooky route and developed a pokie which’ll both entertain and thrill you at the same time. Introducing Boogie Monsters, the all singing and dancing freaky pokie.
They’re monsters… who just love to boogie
Boogie Monsters is a 40 line, five reel Vegas-style pokie machine jam-packed with plenty of bonus features. As you might have guessed from the introduction it features well-known artists mocked up as ghouls and zombies. Each creepy-fied artist takes the place of a symbol, including the likes of Elvis, mocked up as a monstrous form of his former self, and Bob Marley who features as a zombie. It’s a somewhat humorous take on the quirky-horror range of pokie games out there, and is definitely one to get you in the mood for Halloween.
The layout of the game is what you would expect for a Microgaming pokie. Paylines stretch out from left to right and can be increased or reduced by either the ‘lines’ button at the bottom of the screen, or clicking on small orbs on either side of the pokie. The spin button can be found in the bottom right hand corner and is used to initiate the reels. You have two options when it comes to betting — you can either choose your own stake, or bet the maximum which is 400 coins. Each coin is valued from 0.01 to 0.50 coins, which means the maximum bet per spin is $200. Your bankroll is visible in the bottom left hand corner, and for those who haven’t got time to sit around and press the spin button have the opportunity to utilise the auto play feature.
In terms of appearance, Boogie Monsters adopts a colour pallet you would expect from a horror pokie. With dark purples and blacks, a lingering full moon in the background and an eerie soundtrack, you’re set for a chilling time. In terms of usability, it’s all pretty simple. All you need to do is press spin and you’re on your way, which is refreshing as sometimes the theme can overwhelm the user experience.
Bonus features and more in Boogie Monsters
In terms of bonus features, there are two important scatter symbols: the Fat Bat and the Lamp Bonus. Landing the Fat Bat bonus takes you through to a dilapidated children’s bedroom, where the player is tasked with picking through forgotten belongings for cash prizes. Unfortunately, when a bat is revealed, the bonus is over. A truly chilling bonus game set to scare. This freaky bonus is triggered by landing three bat symbols in a row.
The second bonus in this game is the lamp bonus, which awards the player 13 free spins and a 5x multiplier. To trigger this bonus you need to land three or more scatter symbols anywhere on consecutive reels. Not only are you getting free spins, but with the multiplier included you’ve got the potential to win big money.
And that’s everything you need to know about Boogie Monsters. Don’t wait until next month for the chills and thrills of Halloween, play this creepy, yet humorous pokie today!
