Make Your Money
Everything seems scarier in the dark but if you want to win some cash you’ll need every inch of your courage to face up to what could be waiting in the abyss. As it happens, these monsters are more cute than scary even if they do try their best to terrify anyone who plays. There are 5reels with a minimum of 30 paylines which can be adjusted lower if you prefer. Between one and five coins can be played per line and these can be valued from 0.02 up to 0.50. This provides a max bet of 0.60 credits and a max bet of 75 credits per spin.
The prizes on offer can often help you to decide how much to bet so you might want to glance through the paytable before you start to play. There’s a match of three required for any pay out and a top prize of 2500 for a max bet.
Facing up to those monsters has to come with a reward and that’s in the form of the extras and bonuses you could win on the game. Wilds are nothing new in slots but in Under the bed you could also benefit from Sticky Wilds too. When you land a winning combination which features one of the monsters with a frame around the tile, it will turn over to show a hidden number. This is the number of turns the wild will remain stuck to the reels for.
There’s a bonus feature too which sees little Jesse and Jane battle directly against the monsters who are trying to frighten them. You’ll unlock this feature when you land at least three of the bed symbols on the reels. In the dimly lit room the two children will perch on their bed and to progress you’ll need to pick a card. Each card contains a prize but also a monster too; you’ll collect the payout while Jane and Jesse have to face that particular monster! Keep going and pick more cards, repeating the sequence until you uncover the “collect” sign. This card has the children’s mum behind it giving the children a break from monsters to fight!
Jesse and Jane don’t appear in every feature as there’s some parts of gameplay when they can just sleep peacefully, oblivious to what’s going on. If you land the door symbol on the middle reel a hand will appear and start the feature, giving you up to 12 free spins. All of these spins take place in the monster bedroom so proceed if you dare!
If you’ve not yet had your fill of monsters there’s other games you can enjoy which feature a very similar theme. The trick is to find a slot which offers the fluffier, squidgier kind of monsters rather than the all-out gruesome Halloween kind! Microgaming has a good option with So Many Monsters, a fun themed slot which may not have the same quality of graphics as Betsoft but certainly has the same fun appeal. With slimy monsters with names such as Frogmosher, Squideye and Eyez, you’ll get quite fond of the critters which plague the 25 paylines! There’s also a bonus round and medium volatility, matching almost every aspect on Under the Bed.
Bringing Nightmares to Life!
Under the Bed is an online video slot from Betsoft which is very effective in recreating those common childhood fears in agonising 3D detail. You’ll find yourself in Jane and Jesse’s shoes as you overcome the nighttime peril of monsters to win a good haul of instant cash prizes.
