Munchkins is a 5-reel, 20 payline slot with a free spins bonus and a gamble feature. The game is produced by Microgaming and contains all the features expected from this software developer.
The maximum jackpot during normal play is 15 000 coins and this increases to 30 000 coins during the free spins games.
Thematically, Munchkins are little aliens who seem to take bites out of everything around the house; homework, keys, wallets and, of course, biscuits. They only come out at night when they search for anything edible and inedible.
The slot machine generates an atmosphere that is playful and light-hearted. The fact that Munchkins is available in Free Play mode facilitates practice and first-hand experience at no cost.
The Munchkins video slots game has a high hit rate with being a medium volatility slot. In total there are 33 different winning combinations available on the pay table. Munchkins has a high top jackpot of 15 000 coins which is won by lining up five of the Wild symbols on any active payline.
All jackpots are multiplied by the payline bet so playing the maximum 10 coins per line is essential to achieving the maximum possible base game win of 150 000 coins. Should this win be achieved during the Free Spins feature game, it would include the 2x multiplier and hence pay the overall Munchkins slots game maximum of 300 000 coins.
Features and Betting Options
Munchkins is a low variance slot machine and therefore suitable for many types of players, including beginners. Gameplay options range from 0.01 up to the maximum of 0.50 coin value. The number of coins that can be wagered per line ranges from 1-10.
There are 15 paylines in total and they should all be activated for successful game play. The Gamble feature is also available on this slot machine.
Most the symbols on Munchkins slots reels have had a bite taken out of them. The regular symbols are limited to a maximum payout of 500 coins.
Munchkins comes with 20 Free Spins like you find offers in all the top Australian online pokies, which include a 2x multiplier, so all wins are doubled.
However, the multiplier applies only to regular symbol combinations, not combinations including Wild symbols. Nevertheless, the free spins can be re-triggered and are usually very productive.
Wild and Scatter Symbols
The Wild symbol in Munchkins slots play is the light blue Wild symbol which will substitute for all symbols except for the Scatter symbol to complete a winning combination.
Land two or more Wild symbols and an instant payout is affected. The maximum jackpot on Munchkins slots game is achieved by landing five Wild symbols whilst playing the maximum bet possible.
The Scatter symbol is the Cookie symbol in Munchkins. This means that if two or more of these symbols stop on any reel in any position, including inactivated paylines, it is considered a winning combination. This is also the trigger for the free spins round.
The Free Spins feature is activated when 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols land on the reels.
All wins are doubled in this round and this feature can be retriggered. All bets and lines will be played as the same as the triggering bet during the feature.
