One of Microgaming’s old-school slot machine games, Munchkins is all about hunger, and about little critters who turn up at night and will take a bite out of anything. Expect half-eaten and gnawed homework books, wallets, keys, and even the high-playing cards have bite-sized chunks taken out of them in this quirky but entertaining video slot. Available on the Microgaming’s Quickfire platform, Munchkins now looks dated, but still offers good, old-fashioned video slot gameplay from yesteryear. The slot features 15 adjustable paylines, and coin denominations which range from 0.01 up to 0.50. As many as 10 of those coins can be staked per payline, too. Expect floor bets to cost at least 0.01 per line per spin, while maximum bets are capped at a ceiling of 75.00 a game. Players can win a sizeable chunk of change in this game. By landing 5 wilds on a line, they can walk away with a non-progressive jackpot which is capped at 15,000 coins in all.
Aside from delivering the non-progressive jackpot, wild symbols can also replace all other symbols in the slot, save for scatter icons. Wilds appear in the shape of a UFO and are very easy to spot on the reels.
The scatter icon is the only actual food symbols on the reels, and the only without a bite taken out of it, oddly enough. These Oreo cookie symbols can dish out scattered wins worth 1x, 2x, 20x or even 60x your total bet when 2, 3, 4 or 5 appear anywhere on the reels in the base game. They can also trigger a free spins bonus should 3 or more appear.
A gamble feature can be invoked following any win in the game. A simple, double-your-money feature follows, whereby players can gamble their winnings until the gamble limit is reached, or until they lose. This is quite common in older video slot machines such as Munchkins.
Back to the free spin bonus. Players will start this bonus round with 20 free spins, no matter whether they land 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the reels. During this feature, any wins you happen to pocket will be doubled courtesy of a 2x multiplier. You are also able to retrigger the bonus feature by landing more scatter icons on the reels of the game while the bonus is being played.
