Monster Mash is a peculiar video slot released by the well known Odobo gaming platform. Monster Mash is labeled as featuring 243 ways to win, but overall the winning possibilities of this slot are pretty straightforward, as it is lacking in abundance of bonus features, in comparison to other video slots, with the exception of the Monster Maker free spins feature.
The theme of the slots has a striking resemblance to Monsters Inc., although it is in no way directly tied to the movie franchise. However, the pleasant theme of goofy monsters is certainly present in this slot. The graphics are on an excellent level, as well as the animations and sound effects, which when combined ultimately deliver entertainment on a high level.

Monster Mash allows for a fair variety of betting sizes, and taking into consideration its 243 ways to win, there is the possibility to win ludicrous amounts of cash per spin. The minimum bet you can place is €0.10, while the maximum bet is €10 per spin. This video slot features the regular Scatter and Wild symbols. The rest of the symbols consist of four monsters in different colors, which I’ll list in a descending order, where the highest one is the one you should look forward to the most, due to its bigger bet multiplication: blue, purple, yellow and green. Also, you have the standard letter and number symbols A, Q, K, J, 9 and 10, which are recognizable as symbols but are transformed into monsters.
An interesting addition to this slot is that you have three individual spin buttons, which is a purely aesthetical feature, but unique nonetheless. Besides adjusting your bet from €0.10 to €10, you have the auto play option, but it is quite limited for reasons unknown. You can select to auto spin for 5, 10 and 20 spins before having to manually readjust again.
The scatter symbol in this video slot is the purple monster labeled as “Big Eye’. If you are lucky enough to see this symbol 3 or more times in a single spin, you will trigger the Monster Maker free spins feature. This feature is second to none in terms of uniqueness, and it is quite lucrative in terms of winning possibilities.
Upon triggering the free spins feature, you are taken to a screen where you can create your monster. First and foremost, you select its hair, and then you select the eyes, as well as the mouth, hands and legs. That is five steps of selection, all of which grant varying amounts of free spins OR a multiplier on all your winnings. The multiplier is where the winning potential gets juicy, as you can get a x5 multiplier per selection, which accumulates if you are lucky enough to spot another multiplier. The multiplier, when combined with the total amount of free spins, signifies that there is plenty to be had in this video slot’s bonus feature. If you happen to trigger 3 scatters during your free spin feature, the new free spins will be added to your total, you do not have to create a monster again.
The wild symbol in this slot is the Big Mouth red monster, and it substitutes for all symbols except for the Big Eye scatter symbol.
Monster Mash is definitely a high risk high reward video slot, due do the nature of its mechanics itself. This slot has 243 ways to win, meaning you’ll spot wins quite often, but they may be lower than your bet itself. However, if you manage to trigger the free spins once or several times, while not having lost a significant sum of cash prior to that, you can exit the slot with a big virtual bag of money. This slot is quite entertaining in itself, and is definitely worth checking out. Masterful work from Odobo, for creating such a simple but exciting slot machine.
