They lurk in the shadows and come out only at night. They live in closets and under the beds and can sometimes be seen by the pale moonlight.
These are the monsters Under The Bed from the developers at Betsoft. Join our young friends Jesse and Jane as they journey with you in search of terrible creatures in this 5-reel and 1 to 30 variable paylines slot that grants you the opportunity to win up to 105,000 coins!
Great 3d graphics with fun music and sound effects
Betsoft has a reputation for creating some innovative games with great 3d graphics and this game is no different. A dark children’s bedroom is the perfect setting for our little heroes to discover exactly what is lurking in the shadows. Symbols include a window with a full moon view, a night lamp and four different monsters. Mom and dad, Jesse and Jane are the top-paying symbols!
The game includes some animation including our young heroes hand in hand to the bottom right of the reel but you will also see monsters and critters creeping and slithering about at times.
The music is playful and the accompanying sound effects add a little bit of humour and fear in just the right proportions.
Good collection of features
Monsters are only one of the things you will find in this game! Let’s start with rimmed monster symbols. When monsters with a rim around them form part of a winning payline, these symbols will then flip over to reveal a sticky wild symbol each with a random numerical value corresponding to the number of spins for which the wild will remain in place. Each number counts down after each spin until you have exhausted all the spins and the sticky wild symbol disappears.
We also have the bed scatter symbol which appears anywhere on the reels. The appearance of three of these symbols anywhere unlocks the bonus round. Join Jesse and Jane as you choose amongst upside down playing cards to reveal the monster and coin prizes. You continue to choose until you have selected the card with the collect card message.
The mysterious door symbol may appear on the middle position of the centre reel and unlock the 12 free spins feature with a 2x multiplier on all wins. Here you are teleported into a monster’s bedroom that exists in a parallel reality to our heroes’ bedroom.
For good measure, the developer has added a double-up feature where you have the chance of doubling up on your winnings by predicting whether the dice roll carried out by one of our monsters totals an even or odd number.
The scariest thing might be to not play
Under The Bed can be played with total bets from as small as €0.02 to as grand as €150 with coin values of as little as €0.02 to as much as €1.00. The theoretical return to player (RTP) is listed at 96.40%, which is about average.
I found that the bonus feature could be triggered on occasion, and the same goes for the free spins feature and sticky wild feature though I really can’t say I managed to win anything near as exciting.
Still, with a potential jackpot of 105,000 coins to be won, it may be scarier not to play!
