So Many Monsters is a part of the trio of entertaining slot games released by Microgaming. The other two include ‘So Much Sushi’ and ‘So Much Candy’. The objective of all the three games is the same, just the theme is different.
Though the monsters are not scary, Microgaming has taken care of all the other elements to give the game a spooky feel. The background music does create an eerie setting. With 25 pay lines and 5×3 reels, So Many Monsters not only has a lot of monsters (Frogmosher, Baxter, Squideye, Eyez, and RavtonStein), but also plenty of monstrously huge payouts (the biggest prize in the free spins game boasts of 160,000 coins, while the same for the base game is 320,000 coins). You can bet anywhere starting from 0.25, going all the way to 100.

So Many Monsters also includes Split symbols (two topmost paying symbols are split about five times to make way for a much bigger winning combination). The most prominent symbols, covering most reels are however, the monsters in red, blue, green, purple, yellow and red colors. Additionally, you have the standard J Q, K, A and 10 in the form of low value symbols.
The Wild symbol is represented by the So Many Monsters logo while the eyeball symbol acts as the Scatter.
Bonus Features of So Many Monsters
It is perhaps for the first time that you would want your screen to be filled with monsters, because the more number of monsters on your reel, the higher your chances of winning. Monsters are among the Split symbols, so if you have more than two of them on your reels, they will split into five more monster symbols.
Free spins – The Free Spins bonus round is triggered every time three or more Scatter symbols, that is the eyeball appears on the reels. You can win anywhere between 1x and 75x of your wager if you trigger two or more scatters. Though you can choose between 8 to 16 spins, you are likely to win a smaller prize if you opt for a high number of free spins. However, if you are lucky enough to trigger three more Scatter symbols, you get extra spins.
Also watch out for the highly valuable red monster, which shows up only when you are able to trigger a combination of 25 symbols. Clearly, you need a lot of luck and several tries to do that, but it will pay you a massive 640 times your original bet.
