Meerkat Mayhem Slots

Meerkat-MayhemMeerkat Mayhem is a Microgaming slot machine where meerkats are the main characters. You get a chance to see various images from human history, where we are replaced with meerkats. You have meerkat pirates, wizards, pilots, Mexicans or ballerinas, among other things. The clear aim here was to make it a funny game, and I think they’ve succeeded. I’m not as much of a fan of the quality of the design, but it’s not a bad looking game.

While playing Meerkat Mayhem, you will discover inside scatter symbols and wilds, plus a feature which increases the number of the latter. The slot’s 30 paylines can produce payouts of up to $3,000.

Features of Meerkat Mayhem

I’m slightly disappointed with the offer that Meerkat Mayhem has when it comes to the features, though besides the basic scatters and wilds you’re also going to find a Going Wild feature which looks quite good.

Whenever you see the symbol marked wild, with the image of a warrior’s horned helmet, it means that you’ve just found a very basic wild symbol, which has as its only job the power to substitute for another symbol. This only happens when it’s appropriate, when the wild symbol lands exactly in the position where it’s needed. You also need the right regular symbols on the same payline, so that it can form a combo together with them.

The Queen symbol would be the scatter icon of the game, which will reward you with prizes when there are a minimum of three present. The location of the symbols isn’t important, only the total number they appear. The rewards are on the low side though, going only from 2x to 5x the total stake.

Going Wild

This is a very special feature, which is simple enough, but which I haven’t seen used in other slot machines too often. Whenever you get the symbol with the Meerkat Devil, there are five regular symbols which will all turn into wild versions.


The Scuba Diver symbol turns into a Diver, the Bikini Girl now has a couple of meerkat babies, the scooter rider turns into a biker, the WW I pilot into a modern fighter pilot and the Mexican guitar player into a rocker.

Betting options and jackpots

If you decide to go with all the paylines which the game uses, you wager with 30 coins each round. The value of the coins is left up to you, with the minimum being $0.01, the maximum $10. The game has bets of up to $300 per round as a result, which is quite a bit of money.

Despite the high wagers which are placed in the game, the rewards don’t make it worth your while. You can win 300 coins back, which means at most $3,000.

Design and symbols

The design of Meerkat Mayhem is not impressive, but I’d have to say that it’s quite fun to look at, and I loved playing on it anyway. All the symbols chosen here are with meerkats which take human roles, seen in various professions or circumstances. You have a Queen Meerkat, you have fighter pilots, wizards, bike riders, a couple at a wedding and so on. The reels are made to look like they are the windows of a Medieval building, with a Devil Meerkat sitting next to them in a chair.


Symbols: Soldier Helmet (wild), Queen Meerkat (5x the bet, scatter), Mexican Meerkat (300 coins), Mexican Guitarist (150 coins), World War I Pilot (125 coins), Scooter Meerkat (100 coins), Beach Meerkat (75 coins), Scuba Diver Meerkat (50 coins), Wizard Meerkat (30 coins), Ballerina Meerkat (20 coins), Wedding Meerkats (15 coins), Pirate Meerkat (10 coins) and Viking Meerkat (5 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It has a unique theme, I’ll give it that, and the meerkats are always cute to look at, but I don’t like the top prize it offers one bit.

This Meerkat Mayhem slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
