Monsters in the Closet is a new MicroGaming video slot, released to online casinos on October 11th 2010, just in time to get into the Halloween spirit. It features 50 paylines, a free spins feature, a wild symbol, and “The Monster Closet Bonus”.
Trigger free spins by hitting 3 or more Door Knocker scatter symbols during one spin. You are awarded 12 free spins with a x3 multiplier, the Monster Closet Bonus can be triggered during free spins, and 12 more free spins can be won with three more Door Knocker landing on the reels during one of the spins.
The Monster Closet Bonus feature is triggered when three or more Door Key scatter symbols land on the reels during a spin. You are taken to a screen with several doors to choose from, pick one to reveal your prize. There are two second-level bonus features that can be triggered by revealing certain symbols hiding behind the closet doors. The first is the Scary Slam Bonus, where you can collect monster winnings before time runs out. The second feature is the Destination Bonus, where you try to find the monster that matches the type of place it would live.
With all the bonus features available, you would think that you’d be able to win something once in a while. I found it was very tough to hit anything and all the times I played it, it just took my money as fast as it could. It does have nice graphics with funny-looking monsters, but that doesn’t mean much for your experience if you are losing. I don’t normally like games with two features that are triggered by two separate scatter symbols. It seems like you can hit two of each quite often, but it’s tough to hit three matching scatters.
Try Monsters in the Closet at any of these great MicroGaming casinos, maybe you will have better luck than I did.
