Munchkins by Microgaming
Slot about munching creatures
In July 2005, Microgaming has released an amusing casual five-reel slot machine Munchkins with 15 paylines. Little gluttonous characters are hiding under the cover of night, and is not easy to see them, but there are signs of them everywhere - chewed symbols and objects of everyday use.
The theme of creatures that eat objects of the surrounding world is not new, and even munchkins of the slot Munchkins are only the heirs of other characters created on the pages of world literature. The most cruel of their literary ancestors appeared on the pages of the novel by American writer Stephen King "The Langoliers" and in a terrible way they could eat obsolete space and time, together with the people accidentally caught in that strange dimension.
And here is a very close and kind prototype of our Munchkins - munchkins from the Land of the Munchkins - characters of the children's book by American writer L. Frank Baum, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" (in the former Soviet Union this work is known as "The Wizard of Emerald City"). So these funny dwarfs from fairy tales moved into adult online casino games.
Not only Microgaming, but some other casino game developers from time to time refer to the topic of cute toothy creatures, ready to slurp and smack lips over something edible or inedible. Often, these creatures are of vegetable origin, for example in the video slots Munchers by NextGen, It Came from Venus by BetSoft or Critters by MultiSlot.
Who are the gluttons from the game Munchkin by Microgaming? You should travel through the game rounds to discover their true face.
What else can we try?
Perhaps, it is the question that these voracious dwarfs constantly ask themselves. But we can see that they didn't like the symbols A, K, Q, J, 10: having tried a piece of each card symbol, the Munchkins left them to us bitten on the reels for small gains from x 5 to x 100 on the bet.
Having left these cards alone, these creatures went to satisfy their appetite at the expense of other items lying there on the table - a notebooks with homework, a wallet with money, keys. It is a pity they gnawed the diligently done home task, money and car keys, but the main thing is that they did not eat these objects entirely, as we still need these symbols to generate large wins from x 200 to x 500 for five symbols of Notebook ,Wallet or Keys.
And what is too tough for funny Munchkins?
Of course, they cannot gnaw special functional symbols - symbols with a secret! Here the teeth alone are not enough, you shall also contrive to catch these symbols among winning combinations as they do not appear on the reels very often. It turns out that a delicious Cookie survived , because as the Scatter it does not form the pay lines but runs up on any positions on the reels and thus pays the winnings from x1 for two cookies up to x60 for a set of five cookies. Three scatters trigger 20 free spins, at such a speed it is difficult for Munchkins to chew payable symbols, so during free spins all wins have enough time to double themselves.
Neither did Munchkins sneak into the secret Gamble Room, the key to which every gambler gets with a winning combination. Then the player can either take his win by pressing Collect, or go to the risky room that escaped the ubiquitous eaters of everything, and try to double his win or even increase it 4 times by guessing the color (red or black) or the suit of a face-down card.
The glutton dwarfs were not able to eat the Dish-cover either, because being the Wild symbol, it is constantly transformed into any other symbol except for the scatter.
Eureka! Have you got a winning combination with a wild symbol?
The dish-cover is rising ... and here they are - the little critters! We found them!
While the Munchkins have not gnawed everything around ...
... Let's carefully collect buttons and keys, not to lose the opportunity to control the game and get the cherished prizes:

- We will also take the Select Coins button and set the number of coins per line from 1 to 10;
- The key Select Lines will come in handy and with its help we will select a number of lines for betting (1 to 15);
- And shall we take the Bet Max button? Probably, yes, after all, this button will allow us to set the maximum bet 150, and hence to bring closer the maximum possible win;
So, armed with all the tools, let's go to collect our cash rewards for spins in the slot Munchkin
