Critter Pop Slot Review – AvatarUX
It has been a very long time now since my last Avatar UX slot review; the latest was for the game titled ‘RagingPop‘, which has a max win capped at 20,000x and a Free Spins feature with an expandable reel set. Today we are learning all about ‘Critter Pop’, which is available to play now!
This slot is part of the popular Pop series, which has multiple instalments now. Including ‘PiggyPop‘, ‘Lollipop‘ and ‘MonkeyPop‘ as some examples. This latest addition uses a Galactic theme , with a detailed game background filled with different planets and colourful stars. Symbols are represented by creatures such as frogs, Mammoths and Lions with a unique art style. Overall the visuals are unique and well detailed with vibrant colours.
Critter Pop has a setup of 5 reels by 3 to 7 rows; this includes 65,536 pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96% and a max win capped at 20,000x. You can bet from £0.20 to £100.
Critter Pop Pay Table & Symbols
There are 13 symbols in total; this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 6 premium symbols; these are represented by Frogs, Owls, Birds, Foxes, Lions and Mammoths. In addition to these regular symbols is a Bonus Scatter and Wild Symbol. The highest paying symbol is the Mammoth Premium, which pays 6x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the Bonus Scatter.
Each symbol part of a winning combination will Pop and be replaced by 2 symbols. This will increase the reel height. This process is repeated as long as winning combinations occur. The reel height can be expanded to 6 symbols tall in the base game and 8 symbols in the Free Spins feature. The reel height is reset during base game spins.
Critter Pop Features
Landing 3 or more scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. 3 Scatters = 2,048 Starting Ways, 4 Scatters = 6,250 Starting Ways and 5 Scatters Awards 15,552 Starting Ways. Before this feature begins, there is one spin awarded on the Rewards Reel. This grid will spin and will award a random number of starting Free Spins between +1 to +3. Starting Multipliers between +1x to +3x. Multiplier Growth of +1x or +2x. Random 2×2 Mega Symbols, Random 3×3 Giga Symbols. Random Wilds added to the reel set.

Fully unlocking the reels awards 2 additional spins and a 2x Multiplier. The multiplier is also increased by 1x for each symbol pop. You have the option to buy each Free Spins option as shown below;
Overall, I think this slot is perfect for people who love the Pop series and unique game mechanics. With a max win capped at 20,000x and a Free Spins feature with expandable reels & multipliers. Be sure to try out the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
