Munchers is an online slot game from NextGen which is set within a slightly run-down greenhouse filled with plants and bugs galore. The title ‘Munchers’ refers to the carnivorous plant, the central feature of the game – which I suppose is based on a Venus Fly Trap or the plant from Little Shop of Horrors (or both). The sounds within the greenhouse are flies buzzing, crickets chirping and every now and then, the Muncher plant catching and chomping on a fly. There are fabulous graphics and animations too, and funky music as you spin. Look out for the butterflies fluttering by, and the water sprinkler animation. There are 25 lines across 5 reels in this amusing slot game, plus a fun bonus feature.
The reel symbols are mostly theme-related and include a fly, a spider, a fork and trowel and a gardening glove as the higher win icons. The remaining symbols are playing card icons from Ace to 9. The Muncher plant is the wild and will substitute all symbols within the game except for the scattered watering can. Watch as the muncher plant substitutes – he is so greedy that he will scoff the ‘Wild’ letters in the symbol.
The watering can scatter will bring on the bonus feature should you land 3 or more. The bonus feature is 10 free spins, whereby munchers can expand randomly and cover all positions on any reel. Free spins unfortunately cannot be retriggered.
Munchers slot game also offers players the option to gamble their base game winnings. You can double or quadruple your winnings by playing a prediction game; simply guess the next colour or suit of a card to be revealed from a pack and you will win double or quadruple your total respectively. Beware though, as an incorrect guess results in a loss of your winnings for that round.
This game really reminds me of Little Shop of Horrors; it is quirky, a little odd and totally amusing. I think they have done really well with the graphics, animations, sound effects and music too. Munchers gets a huge ‘thumbs up’ and is a slot game I won’t hesitate to recommend.
