‘Do you adore festivals or believe they’re hell on Earth?’ is a thought-provoking question posed on the Quickspin game sheet for Scatter Monsters. Consider Woodstock as an illustration. Even though it has achieved legendary status, there is plenty of criticism of the famous event available on the internet, including complaints about the weather, the mud, the lack of food, the subpar restroom facilities, and the mountains of waste. On the other hand, legendary performers like Jimi Hendrix were featured on its extensive lineup. The answer is not easy.
Anyway, the Scatter Monsters event is the actual definition of hell. It takes place in hell and has a Wild Cauldron feel to it. Scatter Monsters’ icons are three types of “culture-loving monsters” that have gathered for the five-day Scatterbury festival: vampires, zombies, and demons. The soundtrack enhances the atmosphere by being a hard, grinding, Black Sabbath-esque type of tune punctuated by upbeat sound bursts whenever anything interesting occurs on the grid.
Scatter payouts are used to generate wins, and the grid itself is a 6×6 panel. A win is established and the symbols constituting it are removed from the reels when at least 8 matching symbols appear, in any position. After a symbol is eliminated, a new one falls to take its place, and this procedure is repeated until no more scatter wins occur. The celebration is managed by a somewhat volatile mathematical model (scored 3 out of 5), with three RTP settings, the maximum of which may be seen on the paytable.
Payouts and other details for each symbol are also shown in the paytable. Different colors and styles of pay symbols are used. Blue represents vampires, green represents zombies, and red represents devils. This system is used to classify symbols since each hue corresponds to a certain Soul Meter. There is a little vampire, a baby zombie, and a tiny demon representing the lowest end of the scale, a vampire, a zombie, and a demon representing the middle, and a large vampire, a huge zombie, and a gigantic demon representing the highest end of the scale. Scatter wins of 8-9 of a kind pay 0.2-1.5x the bet, while scatter wins of 26-36 of a kind pay 0.75x-10x the stake. Last but not least, Scatter Monsters is playable on any device, has a wild symbol that may replace for any pay sign, and has betting ranges from 20 pence to 100 pounds or euros each spin.
Monsters That Scatter: Slot Game Features
Scatter Monsters’ features, including Soul Meters, Symbol Upgrades, Color Removals, Free Spins, and Win Multipliers, are activated by Scatter Wins and Heaven Gift Symbols, respectively. Let me explain how it operates.
When a successful scatter pattern is formed, the corresponding symbols are added to the Soul Meter for that color. When the meter is full, an additional modifier is applied;
The blue bar on the vampire soul meter needs 20 souls to fill. When it’s full, it grants a Symbol Upgrade, which transforms all low-pay symbols into their higher-value counterparts regardless of color. If there are no potential low-paying gigs, the mediums are advanced.
The green Zombie Soul Meter needle must be pushed all the way to the top with 40 souls. When the corresponding Soul Meter is full, the Colour Removal is granted, erasing all occurrences of a random color sign.
The crimson Demon Soul Meter gauge requires 60 souls to reach full capacity. When the meter is full, you get 8 bonus spins, plus an extra one for every 25 Demon Souls you have over 60.
Overfilling the Zombie and Vampire meters will cause the function to activate many times. For instance, the Symbol Upgrade will be granted twice if a total of 40 souls have been gathered in the Vampire Meter. After each round, the gauges are re-set.
Filling the Demon Soul Meter with 60 Demon Souls during free spins grants an extra spin, and doing it again with each subsequent batch of 60 souls grants yet another spin. Any remaining souls at the end of a free spin are turned into a multiplier and added to the spin’s prize. For 0-15 remaining souls, x1, x3, x5, x7, x10, or x20 is used; for 16-30, x5, x7, x10, or x20 is used for 71+ remaining souls; and so on.
Scatter Monsters: The Slots’ Final Say
Scatter Monsters players are encouraged to “get access to the VIP room in hell, where you can mingle with Satan and other superstars” in the game sheet provided by Quickspin. Who knows, maybe he’ll sign your book! It’s like when someone close to you says something very shocking in front of a group of strangers and everyone goes into a stunned, ‘huh?’ silence. Then they act as if it were all an elaborate joke, but you can’t help but wonder whether they’re telling the truth. Indeed, they did appear to be rather serious…
But enough of that; let’s return to the game itself, which has many antagonistic characters. We’ve already covered the hellfire and damnation angle; the math model may appear weak for the topic at hand, but not nearly so much when contrasted to the maximum payout of 1,493 times the initial wager. Scatter Monsters was initially difficult to master. Poor scatter victories, hardly full meters, and a steadily decreasing balance were all symptoms of a deeper problem. The first occurrence of the free spins feature restored the equilibrium to its pre-free spins state. The bonus round of free spins proved to be far more exciting than the regular gameplay. At first, it was disappointing that the meters reset with each spin. On the other hand, it appeared that the hit rate was greater during the bonus, resulting in more meter fills and some helpful multipliers from the remaining souls. There was nothing particularly noteworthy that happened, and as was previously said, Scatter Monsters’ limited potential means that 100% victories are unlikely anyhow.
Scatter Monsters is a further exploration of the peculiarities of the Quicksin mind. It will be fascinating to watch what kind of players Scatter Monsters attracts. Not a huge jackpot slot, but not exactly a ‘friendly’ one, either. In other words, the potential payoff was little in comparison to the level of risk involved. Ultimately, perhaps the heavy metal, down in a hole, relaxing with a menagerie of rhythms, type motif will be what determines Scatter Monsters’ success or failure.
