When you think about monsters in general and what they do, being brutally honest, unless your sole experience is watching the Michael Jackson Thriller video, then you are unlikely to have this group of fiends down as being up for a bit of a boogie.
But that is precisely what you get with this exciting slot from Microgaming which offers the usual 5x3 reels of action across 40 paylines. All paylines are in operation on every spin and you can bet from 0.40 per spin up to the game maximum of 400 coins per spin which is ideal for the higher roller players.
As you may have guessed from the title of the slot, this is a game that is aimed more at the rather friendly benign type of monster that we'd come to expect in an episode of Scooby Doo, or perhaps in the Addams Family, rather than an exercise in horror. This is emphasised by the range, quality and style of the visual presentation and sound.
There's no playing card lows in this game (hurrah!) instead, what you get are a myriad of monsters across the reels all in bright vivid colours which contrast nicely with the dark background that the slot is set against. Add in some outstanding music and comical sound effects and you have a slot that captures the desired mood perfectly.
There's a whole host of monsters to enjoy from werewolves to scarecrows, witches and others that simply defy description.
The base game itself rattles along at a very enjoyable pace and there is always a good chance of landing a win thanks to the 40 paylines in play. This is a slot that won't necessarily pay you a huge amount too often, but you are rewarded with relatively frequent smaller wins which helps keep the balance topped up nicely.
While the base game is great and enjoyable to play, what really makes Boogie Monsters stand out from the crowd the number of bonus features that are included in the game. This slot combines elements of ‘pick me' games with ‘free spins' bonus rounds, not to mention the usual Wild symbols to create a bonus fans dream.
The Fat Bat bonus round is well worth a closer look as this is activated when the player lands three or more of the Bat symbols across the reels. When this is achieved, the bonus screen loads up and this takes the form of a room. All you need to do is click on potential hiding places for the bats and when you have selected three, your winnings will be displayed.
Select the right bats however and your winnings could zoom up as you could also land a fantastic 60x multiplier which really ramps up the wins.
The second bonus feature in the game is the Free Spins bonus and this is activated when a player lands the scatter symbol, a blue lamp, in three or more positions across the reels. Triggering not just a cash prize, but also 13 fabulous free spins.
One of the best things about these free spins is that they come with a superb 5x bonus attached to all wins, so each time you land a winning payline, you are going to receive five times more than you ordinarily would. Better still, if you trip free spins again during free spins by landing three or scatters across the reels, then you re-trigger another 13 free spins.
There is a fantastic jackpot available of 144,000 coins to be won on this outstanding and enjoyable slot and with the Boogie Monsters Wild symbols across the reels offering players the chance of more wins in the base game and during free spins, what more excuse do you need to get on your dancing shoes and head to the basement for a dance with this group of dancing demons!
