Colorful Monsters Pay You to Pop Them
The object of Monster Pop is simple. You match up four or more monsters and they pop off the board. Whenever this happens, the board shifts downward and new monsters drop down into the board. When new combinations are made, they are paid and the process starts again. This continues until no new winners are made.
There are eight goofy-looking monsters that you can match up. Wins are clusters of four or more. Due to Monster Cloners, you theoretically could match up to 1,000 of the same monster in a winning combination. The game has a balanced mix of lower-paying and higher-paying symbols.
The Oracle Eye serves as the wild for this game. It can substitute for any symbol except the scatter and the Monster Cloner.
This game has a flat bet rate rather than a credit or line-based system. You can play for as little as .25 per spin all the way to $25 per spin.
The monsters want you to win. If you don’t, sometimes they get angry. When they do, one of two things will happen. They will either create a Cloner Bomb and send Monster Cloners around the board or they will shuffle in the grid. When they shuffle, they group with identical monsters to create a winning combination.
We had the monsters get mad a couple of times, but both times they shuffled the board for winning combinations.
The game board starts as a 5×5 grid, but anytime a Monster Cloner symbol appears, the grid will expand either vertically, horizontally, or both. When this happens, the row that forces the expand is cloned and on the cloned row, the Monster Cloner symbol is replaced by a Wild Oracle Eye.
If additional Monster Cloners fall, the grid continues expanding. This continues until there are no further winning combinations. The grid then retracts to its original size.
Note that the Monster Cloner can even clone scatter symbols, giving you a greater chance of unlocking the free spins game.
Monster Cloners can fall during free spin games, and when they do, the gird remains expanded for the rest of your free spins.
Flaming Sphere Free Spins
The Flaming Sphere is the scatter for this game. When you land three or more anywhere on the board, you will trigger the free spins game. You will get 7 free spins, plus a free spin for each Flaming Sphere on the screen.
During the free spins game, the grid does not reset after each spin. So the more Monster Cloners you get, the larger the grid and the more chances to win.
We hit the free spins game relatively quickly and ended up winning about 30x our initial bet.
Monster Pop Has a 97.07% RTP
If you need another reason to play Monster Pop, it has a high RTP of 97.07%. While most lists this as a medium variance pokie, we found it to be a bit on the lower side of variance. As such, you can expect frequent smaller wins with the occasional big win coming from the free spins game.
Overall, this was one of the better pokies we’ve reviewed in a while and is one we can recommend for most players. You can find this game at Johnny Kash, Joka Room, and any online casino carrying Betsoft pokies.
