It’s a monster of a party, and you’re invited. However, the Boogie Monsters mobile slot is not quite as light and fun as the theme would have you believe.
As with any of the Microgaming slot machines, there’s something wonderfully fun when you load up this slot game on an iPad or Android casino.
Each symbol has a little animation that lights up, whether that’s Zombie Elvis glittering on the screen, or the tentacled creature drinking what we can only assume is cranberry juice with eyeballs.
Boogie Monsters is a perfect Halloween slot for those who like their horror fun and cheesy, rather than truly ghoulish.
So you’d forgive us when we assumed this would be an easy to play, low risk game. Much like Halloweenies for example.
Oh but no. The Boogie Monsters slot can be monstrous to your wallet… both by sucking you dry or giving you an excuse to party all night in cash.
A good five of a kind win will get your budget moving in the right direction, that’s for sure.
Mostly though, if you don’t get those, you’ll find yourself slowly losing as you keep getting nothing, or wins that are less than your overall bet.
It’s at this point that casual gamblers might walk away to find something a little friendlier like Play’n GO Tower Quest slot. And we wouldn’t blame you.
But, if you are careful with your budget, and you don’t lose your head during this party, everyone once in a while, Boogie Monsters can surprise you.
For one the click me ‘Fat Bat’ bonus can get you as much as 160 times your bet on a brilliant round.
Though mostly you’ll get about 10x to 20x your bet. And if we are going to be honest, it’s what keeps you afloat. Until, somewhere around 200 spins into the game…
Hey, it’s a Microgaming games! What did you expect? They do love a good free spin round.
And if you are lucky, here is where you can suddenly jump from disco wallflower to disco king, as you get 13 free spins with a 5x multiplier on any wins.
The problem we found is that with no wild symbol on the reels, this Boogie Monster video slot is very old-school gambling. In as much that walking away with nothing becomes more of a certainty than a possibility.
It looks good, and the wins are there, but for us, unless you get a brilliant the free spins round very early on in the game, this party can get a little expensive.
For monster fans and those trying to capture the disco fun. Though you might also want to check out Disco Spins slot for something a little easier on the wallet.

Fat Bat Bonus: 3, 4, or 5 bats adjacent to each other anywhere on the reels gets you an instant win AND a click me bonus.
Here you'll be taken to a dark bedroom, where bats hide in every day objects. You'll get as many picks as you got symbol (so usually 3) to uncover the bats and win instant cash, up to 24,000 coins... ie. 60 times your bet.
Not huge, but if you get:
During the free spins these increase to:
So, not bad if you can get plenty of bats on the reels.
Free Spins Bonus: 3, 4, or 5 blue potion bottles adjacent to each other on the reels will trigger 13 free spins with a 5x multiplier on all wins.
You can re-trigger these, but it's not an easy thing to do.
However, you do get an instant win from the scatters to get you going which always helps:
There wasn't enough going on in the Boogie Monster mobile slot to keep us enthralled for very long. At the end of the day, we really missed the wild symbol in this 40 payline slot.
And the bonus features are not easy to catch, as the symbols need to be adjacent to each other to trigger.
Still, we suspect our bad luck might have affected our enjoyment of Boogie Monsters, as there are some good wins hiding here if you are willing to chase it.
Including a top amount of 2,500 times you bet if you are very, very, very lucky.
And when you've chased that dream, come back down to earth and go back to playing good old reliable Thunderstruck II slot, which may not be any more friendly, but at least keeps the action constant.
