What do you do when the apocalypse hit? The Karen Maneater slot dares you to grab your pots, pans, and deep fat fryers and to start cooking all your fellow survivors.
A follow up to the xWays Hoarder xSplit slot, this particular casino game focuses on Karen, the mum of the group who is happy to use her friendly raccoon friends to slice and dice any of her 5 fellow survivors. These are the high-paying symbols, following the gun, battery, poison, drink, and toilet paper low paying symbol.
The Karen Maneater slot game starts with 486 ways to win, but the racoon scatter can increase the ways to win as can the xWays and Infectious xWays symbols, which can increase that symbols space by 2 to 7 symbols high.
The good news is that this is all about getting the free spins bonus, where you are guaranteed at least 3 xWays symbols, bigger reels, and lots of sticky scatters that will give you wins of up to 11,757x your bet. All this, and an RTP of 96% too.
At heart the Karen Maneater mobile slot is a 6 reels, 3x3x3x3x3 slot that has expanded reels of up to 2x3x4x5x6x7. Amongst those expanded ways to win, you also have Wild, Scatters and Free Spins.
The whole goal of the slot is to expand the reels as much as you can, so you can get more ways to win, and cook your fellow survivors in clever and strange ways. Here’s how to expand the game:
If you think this is complicated, walk away now. Maybe go play on the Blazin Hot 7s Big Bonus slot instead. Because it only gets more complicated, and more exciting, as it goes on.
Once you get your head around the idea of how the Karen Maneater base game works, the free spins are easy. 3 or 4 racoons will trigger 7 or 10 free spins.
Those raccoons turn into xWay symbols with a value of 2 ways to win each. So already you have bigger reels thanks to the raccoons, but you have a guaranteed 3 or 4 xWays symbols sticky for the duration of the bonus.
Then each time you get a win, any win, the xWays increase by +1 ways to win, all the way to a possible 42 each. We played on over 230,000 ways to win at one point and didn’t reach anywhere near 42, but we did win over 1,000x our bet.
The Karen Maneater slot machine pays out more often, the free spins trigger a little easier, and the RTP is set much higher. If you buy the free spin bonus, it can go as high as 94.49%.
This real money game is the dirty burger amongst the fine steaks of its sister slots. Filling, a little bit dirtier, but can be just as satisfying when the mood hits you.

Scatter: The raccoon is the scatter symbol and can only land on the middle 4 reels. When a scatter lands all the reels to the right will expand to one extra position. 1 or 2 scatters will convert the scatter to an xWays symbol, whilst landing 3 or 4 will trigger the Bonus Free Spins.
xWays and Infectious xWays: These special symbols can only land in the middle 4 reels. These will reveal 2-4 extra ways to win per symbol, and it's always the same symbol.
The Infectious xWays can only land in the first reel and reveal a symbol 2 to 7 in size. It increases the ways to win by that number.
xBet Enhances Bet: Add +30% to your base game bet and you'll increase the chance to trigger the bonus meal. You also get a guaranteed scatter symbol on the second reel. The xBet increases the RTP of the Karen Maneater slot to 96.34%.
Infectious Wild: A wild can land on the last reel and it will nudge to the bottom position. Each nudge will increase the multiplier on it by +1x. The final wild multiplier will also be added to all the symbols on the last reel. If you also have an infectious xWays symbol on the reel, it will multiply its value.
Bonus Meal Free Spins: 3 raccoons scatter symbols will activate 7 free spins, with the scatters turning to sticky xWays. 4 scatters will trigger 10 free spins with 4 sticky xWays.
The xWays symbols start at 2 symbols high, but each time it is part of a win, it increases in size by one, up to a maximum size of 42.
Landing a single scatter during the bonus will upgrade it to a deluxe Bonus meal, and add + 3 spins to the total, with the scatter transforming to a sticky xWays.
Buy Bonus: You can buy entry into the free spins at any point. The normal RTP of this slot is 96%, but when you buy the bonus, it increases the RTP slightly.
Much like so many other No Limit City slots, this is a ridiculously volatile game with big top wins and crazy features. The top win may not be as high as in the Misery Mining review, but the RTP is a little easier on the wallet, which we think is a fair exchange.
The Karen Maneater slot is busy, it's a little bit crazy, and it's filled with more xWays that we can count (the most we reached was 240,240 ways to win).
So this gets a 4-star slot review, on the condition that we accept that it won't be for everyone. Fans of the likes of the 9 Masks of Fire game won't find anything fun to play here.
But with a unique and funny slot theme, and lots of action on the reels, we know we'll be back to play.
Go give it a try at one of our best slots sites online.
