Monster Meteors SlotMonster Meteors is a fun-filled, highly entertaining video slot by Microgaming which has 5 reels and 25 adjustable paylines. Depicting an alien invasion on Earth, the game is packed with space adventures, plenty of bonus features and cosmic cash prizes.

With the quirky looking Monster Meteors, developers at Microgaming have once again shown their sense of humour when it comes to choosing a theme for their games. This slot is set in Earth’s orbit and the reels are surrounded by a meteor shower, which apparently brings strange aliens on the planet – a hairy ogre-like monster, a pink creature that resembles a squid, a one-eyed monster, and a fat green alien. The 5 reels have 3 rows of symbols and up to 25 lines can be activated. There is a bonus round, free spins, and multipliers that will boost the payouts, while the Scatter and the Wild symbols will ensure winning spins occur more frequently. The jackpot of 5,000 coins is very attractive but the payouts for the monster combinations are more than decent, as well.

Players can wager up to 10 coins per line activated and choose coin sizes between 0.01 and 0.10 credits in the currency they are using. There is a nice betting range from 0.01 credits to a maximum of 25.00 credits per spin, which makes Monster Meteors suitable for every bankroll.

Special Symbols

Instead of invading the planet, the space monsters are landing right on the reels and even the low-value playing cards (from Nine through Ace) are designed to look like alien bacteria. Together with the hairy and the pink monster, they form combinations of at least 3 matching symbols. The larger and scarier aliens, namely the one-eyed creature and the amorphous green monster, pay for 2 of a kind combinations.

The Wild symbol in the game is the soldier who hunts down the aliens and helps players defend the planet from the invasion. The soldier is the most valuable symbol and in order to receive the top payout in this slot, players need to get 5 soldiers on an active payline. This icon substitutes for all symbols in winning combinations with one exception, the Scatter symbol which cannot be replaced. It is represented as the meteor and it also forms its own combinations, but as a Scatter symbol, it does not have to fall on any particular line. Players are given a reward as long as 2 or more Scatter meteors land anywhere on the reels. If 3 or more Scatters appear, players also enter the bonus game.

Bonus Games and Features

The first additional feature players notice when they start spinning the reels is the Gamble feature, accessible from its corresponding button. It appears after a winning combination occurs and allows players to double or quadruple their win by guessing the color or the suit of a face-down playing card. If the guess is not correct, however, the winnings from the current round are lost.

The Monster Meteors slot also has a bonus game which triggers when 3, 4, or 5 Scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels. Initially, players receive the corresponding payout of 5, 20, or 200 times the total bet, as well as 5 free spins. These rounds are played automatically with the same bet and number of lines as the triggering spin. All winnings generated from them are tripled.

Before the free spins begin, however, the Monster Feature activates and players are taken to the surface of the planet where the soldier has to fight against 6 green aliens. The player picks 3 monsters and the soldier zaps those with his ultra space gun. Each alien brings random cash prizes, additional free spins (up to 35), or multipliers of up to 15x. When the monsters are defeated, the free spins can begin with all additional boosters won during the Monster Feature.

Conclusion

Launched in 2009, Monster Meteors is not a new release, but it features very nice, cartoon-style graphics that are perfectly in line with the funny alien invasion theme. Although the slot is quite standard for a Microgaming title, it includes free spins with multipliers, as well as a simple bonus game which also fits ideally the concept of the game. The payouts are fairly generous, although there are games with significantly higher jackpots from this software developer.

Still, this is a very rewarding and extremely entertaining video slot that would appeal to all types of players. The low betting range and the simple gameplay make it a perfect choice even for novices who do not have a lot of experience with online slots. The slot offers a theoretical Return to Player percentage of 96.23%, which suggests decent payouts and quite nice odds for a slot game.
