Midnight Matinee Slot Machine

Midnight Matinee is a 5-reel, 50-payline slot machine title from the minds of the creative boffins at developer Everi Gaming. The game is from the MForce Class III group of machines. If you want examples of other Everi titles from this class then look no further than the likes of Agent 777, Peking Fantasy, and Warrior Legacy.

There is a potential jackpot of 692,000 credits to be won when playing this slot machine. This will pique the interest of players that love a big prize to aim for. Even if the chances of hitting it are slimmer than usual. The maximum bet available is 250 credits per spin. That ensures that players who love a large or small budget are all considered.

This is quite a cool slot machine for players to get excited about playing. It's a hat tip to the age of old school horror movies. It is a topic that has been covered by developers before but not by Everi, so that is refreshing.

Theme

The classic horror movie theme is an appealing one for us. It has been used for a number of NetEnt titles online such as Creature From The Black Lagoon and The Invisible Man due to their partnership deal with Universal Studios. That developer did a great job online but can it be replicated on the casino floors by Everi for this game?

The reels are full of gruesome symbols such as the Wolfman, the Mummy, Frankenstein, and Dracula. There are the Free Spins and Bonus symbols but otherwise a lot of the positions are wasted on 9-through-to-Ace regular symbols.

It could be argued that this is due to the symbols being needed for when the bonus features creep in such as the Midnight Matinee Wilds. A lot of the time this will see the regular symbols turn into something a little more powerful. So there is no real need to be put off by the vast amounts of regular symbols here. Besides, they are decorated in spiders and cobwebs to add to the horror vibe.

Features

This game has a few tidy little features on it to keep players entertained. This is always a pleasure to see with slot machines because some developers can rely on quirks in the base game. So when a game puts some thought into its bonus features it is a huge positive. Here are the details behind the three features on this slot machine.

  • Midnight Matinee Wilds – Now, this is what we are talking about. Any Movie Monster symbol present on the reels will become Wild when the Midnight Matinee logo symbol lands on reel 5. This immediately turns the base game into something extraordinary.
  • Magic Graveyard Bonus – This feature is triggered by hitting three Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5. This is essentially a Pick 'em Bonus where players have 5 picks to choose from a selection of symbols to reveal cash prizes. Lovely stuff!
  • Free Spins Bonus – Firstly, a uniquely additional treat for this bonus feature is the inclusion of Sticky Stacks. Now whether it's pancakes smothered in syrup at breakfast or Wild symbols piled on top of each other, we love a Sticky Stack! This ensures that there is an increased chance of hitting some big wins during the free spins. To trigger this bonus feature you will simply need to land three Free Spins symbols on reels 3, 4, and 5. Once triggered, you will get to choose which of the Movie Monster symbols you want to make the Sticky Stacks symbol.

Summary

Midnight Matinee is an ode to the classic age of horror movies. The graphics are acceptable and the gameplay is very alluring. When we first started playing the game felt like one of those machines that promises so much but delivers so little. Thankfully, with a bit of patience we began to see how entertaining this game can be.

Monsters are always a welcome addition to slot games and it is always great to see a developer use the key characters to their full potential. Using each movie monster as a different attribute is clever and beneficial to the game as a whole. Everyone will have their favourite movie monster and that will play a part in the bonus feature.

In addition, there is the most important fact that you can win some decent prizes playing on this game. The Midnight Matinee Wilds throw a spanner in the works quite frequently but in a good way. Chaos can reign and there will be times when you will just get swept away in the absolute joy of this game. The only down side is that it's frustrating if you do go through a barren run because you know the wins you could be getting.
