Instant win games are very popular but we've always found that there's too much reliance on the good old scratchcard. Scratchcards can be quite tedious and not very interactive so it's nice to come across something a little different. Monster Cravings is the latest instant win game from Jackpotjoy - and it's a bit bonkers.
Monster Cravings reminds us of ZX Spectrum games of old - a kind of Manic Miner meets Pacman type game. Graphically it's infinitely better though! The aim of the game is to guide your monster to eat the sweet candies that it craves. You can either choose a route yourself or rely on the game to pick one for you.
Each candy you eat is a 'bet' - so if you play 20p a candy and eat five candies your wager will be £1. If you choose the route for the monster then there's essentially no limit to the number of bets you can play. If you choose 'play five' - the automatic option - then you'll spend 5 x your chosen candy bet.
Once you've decided on your wager, your monster will mine his way round and eat the candies, some of which will generate a win. There's no obvious pattern to which candies win and so it does just come down to pot luck. If you manage to get five consecutive winning candies then you go in to 'Sugar Rush' where you get free play and hopefully a big win.
Monster Cravings is good fun. The graphics are good plus there's a jolly soundtrack to accompany proceedings. There is no strategy to the game or any particular candies you need to collect - so don't worry about that. Ultimately it is a glorified scratchcard but it does feel like you're getting a bit more interaction for your money.
You can play Monster Cravings over at Jackpotjoy. It's available in demo mode so you can give it a try out before deciding to part with any cash.
