All the game controls are easily accessible. The spin button is on the central right-hand side and your bet cost options are close by along with the paytable and game rules. Microgaming has also included helpful turbo spin and autoplay options as well. The five reels spin in the middle of the screen and these are full of monster characters, but more on those in the next section.
Before you start spinning the reels, you will want to configure the correct bet total for your budget. The 40 paylines are fixed, and so the total bet cost on the Boogie Monsters slot starts at €0.40 and rises to €200 per spin. The bet per line values range from 0.01 to 5, and these connect to the various in-game payouts, which is where we will head to now.
Boogie Monsters includes a full selection of unique symbols, with the majority based on the disco dancing monsters. You also have the game logo, disco shoes, and a cocktail symbol, but the main focus is clearly on the seven different monsters who strut their stuff on the reels. Before we explain the payouts, we should clarify that the prizes are based on your bet per line value, except the scatters, which are based on your total bet.
So, the sharp-eyed players will notice that there is no wild symbol here. Instead, you get two scatter symbols. The lamp scatter wins are added to your free spins wins. The bat scatter wins are added to your bonus wins. In terms of the scatter payouts themselves, both the lamp and bat symbols pay between 2x, 10x, and 100x your total bet. This happens when two, three, or four symbols land adjacently on the reels. Take note that the bat scatter symbol also offers boosted payouts of 25x, 100x, and 1,000x your total bet during the free spins feature.
Let’s now look at the main symbols and explain how much you can win in terms of the minimum and maximum payouts. The Boogie Monsters game logo pays out anywhere from 7x to 5,000x your bet per line for two or five of a kind on a payline. The Elvis Monster pays out 5x the line bet for two on a payline and maxes out at 1,000x your line bet for a five-symbol sequence.
Next up is the Guitar Monster and she pays out between 40x to 750x your line bet for three or five symbols on a payline. The Wolf Monster is the next highest-paying symbol with 30x to 500x your line bet available. The Drummer Monster and Scarecrow Monster both offer anywhere from 25x to 300x your line bet for three or five symbols matching up on a payline.
The game symbols continue with the Mummy Monster and Skeleton Monster, both paying out between 15x to 200x your line bet. Lastly, the last two Cocktail and Disco Shoes symbols both payout anywhere from 10x to 100x your line bet for three or five symbols on a winning payline.
You can find several Boogie Monsters bonus features during the game. These range from free spins to scatters and a rewarding pick and click bonus game. First, the fat bat “pick and click” bonus game. You need to land three or more adjacent bat scatters to trigger the feature. You’ll then be given twelve items in total and it’s your job to pick three of them to reveal your instant cash prizes. Each prize has a potential payout of 60x your bet.
Next, we will explain how you can get on to the Boogie Monsters free spins feature. You need to land at least three or more adjacent lamp scatters and, if you do, you will get 13 free spins along with a 5x multiplier. Free spins can also be retriggered if you land three or more lamp scatters throughout the feature.
Remember, the bat scatter symbol offers boosted payouts during this feature, and the lamp scatter wins are also added to your free spins wins. So, it goes without saying that the Boogie Monsters free spins feature is where you can pick up the biggest wins in this game. The biggest payout displayed in the paytable is 200,000 coins when playing €200 a spin.
The Boogie Monsters RTP has been set to 95.7%, which is around the average for online slot games. However, Microgaming has not stated its official volatility level. So, all you need to know for now is that there is a lot to play for with multiple features and prizes worth up to 200,000 coins!
