Listen up, Ghost Hunters! Yes, I know we are still a couple of weeks away from Halloween but the season for hunting and slaying monsters, vampires, ghosts has begun. Game providers from all across the world have declared open season on all monsters and we have already seen a few new Halloween releases slither their way into our favorite crypto casinos.
Being one of the most prominent providers in the business adds extra pressure to any new game and players are tough critics. BGaming has been around long enough to know this so can Monster Hunt meet the expectations we all have?
First Impressions Last
I wanted to give it a closer look to see if it’s truly trick or treat worthy. At first glance, I’m immediately disappointed by the level of graphics. You need to step it up, BGaming! Then again, maybe it’s all smoke and mirrors and it’s a great slot hiding in there.
Ready or not, BCK is going on a Monster Hunt!
Frankenstein’s Monster or John Cena
I mean, you can see what I’m talking about with the graphics, right? Count Dracula looks like a Walmart costume version and I can’t figure out whether it’s Frankenstein’s monster or John Cena. If you know, could you please tell me?
Again, not a great first impression and I believe the graphics are a big part of making a game appealing to players.

Maximize Your Horror Respins
So what’s hiding in the darkness of Monster Hunt in terms of features. Well, let’s take a look at the first one – Horror Respins.
Basically it’s a version of a Hold & Win game and to trigger it you’ll need to land at least 6 of the gold coin symbols. The coins that triggered the feature will remain on the screen and you will start off with 3 spins.
Land More Coins for More Spins
What you need to do is to land more coins in order to reset the spin count to 3. As far as values go, they will be different and can get you anywhere from 1x up to 20x each.
At some point, you will run out of spins and when this happens, all the values will be added up and collected for you.
How to Win A Horror Respin Jackpot
There is a chance you could score a nice big payout here because if you fill an entire line with coins, you will be awarded one of the Jackpots.
- Fill 1 Horizontal line – Win the Mini Jackpot worth 20x your bet
- Fill 2 Horizontal lines – Win the Major Jackpot worth 100x your bet
- Fill 3 Horizontal lines – Win the Mega Jackpot worth 1,000x your bet
Where Would You Like to Go?
Bad graphics or not, don’t let it bother you too much because you can still get to the Free Spins in more ways than one. Thanks to the Bonus Buy feature, you can actually pick whether to hit the Free Spins or take a shot at the Horror Respins.
This is the route I took to the Horror Spins and despite the Big Win I showed you earlier, I did not get my full investment back this time around.
Bring on the Free Spins
In order to trigger Free Spins the old fashioned way, at least 3 bonus symbols need to find their way onto your reels. This will get you 8 Free Spins and you will get another 8 if you pull off 3 more scatters during your Free Spin round.
Since there’s no limit to how many times you can retrigger them, with a bit of luck you can keep spinning until Santa comes and kicks all monsters out, saying it’s Christmas and it’s his turn to rule the reels.
Monster Hunt – Pass or Play?
I find it difficult to take a game seriously when I see the level of graphics don’t live up to my expectations. Do I sometimes get caught by surprise and change my mind, of course I do.
It is true that Monster Hunt is packing some heat in the way of the Bonus Buy, Free Spins and the Horror Respin. These 3 features are usually enough for me to really enjoy it but it feels like there’s something that’s missing.
Fingers Crossed the Best is Yet to Come
Halloween is coming and for that reason I guess I could tell you to give it a shot. However, considering I’m expecting bigger and better slots to come up before then, I really hope Monster Hunt isn’t the best of them.
I’m fully aware that there will be players who love this game even if I don’t, which is great. So, while we wait for more scary pumpkin slots to be released, you might as well give Monster Hunt a spin or two to find out for yourself. After all, there are 3 Jackpots lurking around.
