Munchkins Pokie

In the world of online pokies, Munchkins is something of an oddity. It isn’t unusual to find a game that looks pretty flash but has very little in the way of bonus features, but this one is the opposite as it looks crap but has some decent, although not spectacular, bonuses for players to enjoy. If they can put up with the way it looks.

Quite what the Munchkins of the title are is anyone’s guess, but there’s a tiny spaceship as one of the symbols from which strange creatures pop out from time to time, so it looks like they are miniature aliens that have taken a bite out of everything in the house that they have come to visit, including the keys, homework and a wallet.

That’s about the extent of what passes for a theme in this game, so we will quickly move on and look at how it works.

Munchkins Gameplay

With 5 reels and 15 paylines, the layout is fairly standard and the plain black surround to the reels doesn’t exactly add visual flair to proceedings. So we just get the payline indicators to each side and the game title underneath, while the regular Microgaming control buttons are at the bottom.

These let players set the value of a coin from 0.01 to 0.50, play with any number from 1 to 10 coins per line, and activate between 1 and all 15 lines for a maximum wager of 75.00. It’s always worth noting that unless all lines are in play, not all winning combinations that land on the reels will count, so it’s better to have small amounts on all lines rather than lots on just a few of them.

Lower value symbols consist of the playing card 10, J, Q, K and A, each of which has had a chunk bitten out of them. Players win a prize by landing 3 or more of the same symbols across any line that they have chosen to activate, with the symbols needing to run from the left side and be on reels next to each other.

Landing the 10 for example, will award them with 5x, 15x or 50x the per line stake when 3, 4 or 5 land across the reels, while moving up to the A symbol, they win 10x, 50x or 100x for the same combinations.

More will be won when the pictures of the chewed up keys, wallet and homework book appear, with up to 500x the line bet paid for the right combinations.

Bonuses with Bite

The Munchkins can make an appearance when the spaceship wild symbol lands in the right places. Being wild, it will act as any other regular symbol if that will complete a winning combination and when it does so there’s a quick animated sequence where the Munchkins pop out of their flying saucer and show their teeth.

If the wild creates a winning line on its own, players will be rewarded with 5x for just 2 wilds, 50x for 3 of them, 1000x for a line of 4 and a full line of 5 right across the reels pays out the game jackpot of 15,000x the line bet.

A chocolate cookie is the games scatter symbol, and it will be worth 1x, 2x, 20x or even 60x the total staked on a spin when 2, 3, 4 or 5 come to a rest in any positions on the reels. Any 3 or more scatters will also start off 20 free spins and although the reels are standard, with no extra chances of getting a win during the free games, at least any prizes that are won are doubled in value.

Munchkins also features the popular gamble round, which is an optional game that can be played after any winning spin. The aim is simply to double the amount just won by correctly guessing if a playing card will be turned over to reveal itself as red or black, and if they get it right, players can either collect the new win or gamble again over and over until the limit is reached. These can be pretty risky games though, so gambling a bigger win is rarely a good idea.

Munch Ado about Nothing?

With wild wins, free spins and a gamble round, Munchkins has a decent array of extra features, so those who like a bit of variety in their gameplay shouldn’t be put off by a rather plain design. It’s got a reasonable bet range, comes from a trusted developer and is at least clearly presented, even if the theme isn’t really that obvious, but anyone giving these reels a spin should find it to be a perfectly decent game, just not very exciting to look at.
