The Critters has a 5x3 reel set-up and has a range of themed symbols that you will be trying to land on the game’s 30 paylines. As well as the standard paying symbols, there are some special symbols that add to the excitement of the game. Some of the symbols have a gold border, and when these land in a winning combination it triggers a Sticky Wild which flips to reveal Free spins. The bed symbol is the game’s scatter symbol, and this will trigger the bonus game. Lastly, the door symbol appears only in the centre spot on the reels, and when it lands it activates the Free Spins bonus. With a gamble game also on offer, there’s plenty of action in this slot. 

If you want to try out The Critters, you can play the game in demo mode here at Slots Temple, along with other fun Nucleus Gaming slots. Demo mode is completely free and offers an opportunity to play without losing any money.

Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack

The Critters has a creepy theme, as it explores things that go bump in the night. Players are invited to join a brother and sister as they are awoken in the night to discover that the monsters they fear under their bed aren't just a figment of their imagination! The game shows the brother and sister on the reels along with some creepy characters, including a spider and some different-coloured monsters in various shapes and sizes. 

The graphics look good and the game has the look and feel of a kids’ movie with the two main characters and an ensemble of monsters. The sound effects add to the game-play, but some creepy music would have been a nice addition. 

If you like spooky slots, you can check out some of our Halloween themed slots such as the Monster Thieves slot from Mancala. With an RTP of 95%, Monster Thieves has a similar creepy theme and includes Multipliers, Wilds, Scatters and a Pick bonus game with prizes.

The Critters Bonus Features 

Gold-Edged Symbols and Sticky Wilds

If you land a winning combination of any monster with a gold edge, it will trigger the Sticky Wild feature, where the gold-edged symbol flips over to reveal a Sticky Wild and up to five Free Spins.

Free Spins

The game features a special doorway symbol that appears in just one position on the reels - in the very central spot. If you are lucky enough to land this, it will trigger the Free Spins bonus feature. Players are awarded 12 Free Spins and the feature takes place in the lopsided bedroom.

Double-up Game

After each win in the base game, except during or immediately after the Sticky Wild feature, players have the opportunity to double their winnings by playing in the gamble game. Players are presented with several dice showing a total number, and if they wish to play, players must choose whether the next dice roll will be odd or even in total. Choose correctly and the win is doubled, but choose incorrectly and the win is lost.

Bonus Game

If you land three or more bed symbols anywhere on the reels, it will trigger The Critter’s bonus round, where the brother and sister must fight off the monsters in a dark room!

The Critters Review

The Critters offers a fun game-playing experience and has a lot to offer in the way of bonus features. The game looks good, with graphics reminiscent of a kids’ animation movie, and the story of the kids against the monsters makes it engaging from the start. It would be nice to have a turbo mode, but it’s the range of bonus features that makes this game appealing. The bonus features are really engaging - especially the bonus monster chasing game. With sticky wilds and the chance to double winnings with the gamble game on top of the free spins round, there’s plenty going on to make the game really entertaining.
