How to play Munchers slot
On the Munchers slot between the spins of the reels, the number of active lines and the bet can be adjusted. The total bet depends on these parameters, that is, the value of a reel spin. All keys are at the bottom of the screen.
Press the “+” or “-” buttons in the Lines box to change the active lines. In total there are 25, but it is not mandatory to make each spin with all the active lines. The Max button assigns the maximum number of lines. The total bet and the probabilities of obtaining the combinations depend on this parameter. The award is given for identical symbols found on an active line.
You can change the bet in the Bet window, by pressing the “+” and “-” keys. The minimum value is 0.01 credits, the maximum is 10. Bet establishes a single line bet. Pressing the Max button, located to the left of the Bet box, will set the maximum bet. The Total Bet window shows the total cost of a single spin of the reels.
The Bet value determines the amount of prizes that can be won for a combination. In the pay table, which is opened with the Info key, the coefficients of symbols and combinations that they form are marked. The calculation of the prize is carried out automatically according to the formula: the bet per line is multiplied by the coefficient of the symbol. For example, the most profitable combination in Munchers is the five “wild” symbols that bring 50 credits with the minimum bet of 0.01 credits. With the maximum bet the player will receive 50,000 virtual credits.
The combination will bring the payout only if it has been made up of identical symbols. They have to be on the adjacent reels, starting from the first. The symbols Scatter is an exception. They give prizes regardless of their location. Another exception to Scatter is the formula for calculating the prize. In the case of ordinary symbols the coefficient is multiplied by the bet per line, in the case of Scatter the prize will be equal to the coefficient multiplied by the total bet.
Prizes from different lines do not add up. If several combinations have appeared on the line, the prize is calculated by the most profitable one. For example, on the first and second reels the symbols “wild” have appeared, the combination coefficient is x10, and on the third reel appears the king.The payout is counted as three kings, since the combination coefficient is x15.
Starting the reels can be done in two modes, manual and automatic. Press the Spin button to start a spin. The Autoplay button will open the menu in which the player with the help of the cursor assigns the desired number of automatic spins. Here you can reset the last settings of the mode by pressing Last Settings. In addition, there are several information windows in the control panel:
- Balance, shows the account in credits.
- Win, shows the amount of win for the last spin.
- An information bar below the reels shows possible bonuses and winnings on each line.

The “wild” symbol is the carnivorous sundew with the inscription “wild” and it will help to compose or complete the combination of some symbols. For example, on the first and third reels on an active line is the glove symbol, which does not make up a winning combination. If the “savage” appears on the second reel, a combination of three glove symbols will be formed. The player will receive the prize corresponding to the coefficient of the combination and the bet per line. This property does not apply to Scatter symbols.
