Munchers is a video slot game created and produced by NextGen Gaming. The game has an unusual theme, based loosely on Little Shop of Horrors, and is set in some abandoned greenhouse where a range of insects, bugs, a moving water pail, swinging lights, and a sprinkler with a life of its own create an interesting, different background and theme. The slot machine itself is a standard 5-reel, 3-row, 25-payline video slot.

Wilds and Scatters Available

The Wild symbol is also the most potentially rewarding symbol in terms of generating jackpot payouts too. The highest non-bonus symbol jackpot is the Mosquito symbol as five of these appearing on a payline will win up to 1500 coins, providing the relevant payline is activated.
Three or more of the Watering Can Scatter symbol landing anywhere on the reels generates the most lucrative award of 10 free spins.
