Karen Maneater - Slot Review
Exceptionally, we missed the April release from this game developer. The reason for this was the theme, which we didn’t find at all funny or relevant. However, it was just one exception and, as a general rule, Nolimit City has created some of the most spectacular and unusual themes in the games industry. Unusual is probably the adjective to describe this theme too, with its female characters, her raccoons and her somewhat strange concoctions.
Grid & Details
The Karen Maneater is by default a six reel wide and two to three rows high video slot with 486 left-to-right paylines in this format. Winning combinations require three to six matching winning patterns and/or wilds. The maximum payout on Karen Maneater is 11,757 x bet. The payout percentage is capped at 96.00% excluding bonus bets.

Low-value patterns in the paytable include paper rolls, mugs, syringes, batteries and assault rifles, with the better ones being four male characters and Karen – the latter with a six-line bet of 3x the line value. The wilds on reel six are represented by the letters W on a purple background and the scatter symbols by raccoons.
Special Features & Bonuses
Before or after any round is played, the player has the right to decide whether to take advantage of the so-called extra bet. It increases the bet used by 30%, against which there is always a scatter symbol on the second reel and the probability of a free spin feature is therefore higher.

xWays & Wild
One of the trademarks of Nolimit City is the xWays feature. These xWays symbols are found on the four middle reels, where they have matching payout patterns in stacks of two or four symbols.
Infectious xWays symbols are found on reel one. They transform into stacks two to seven rows high, doing the same for all the other matching patterns.
The third special symbol to be listed is the Infectious Wild. It settles at the bottom of reel six, increasing the multiplier by one for each line. The multiplier is also increased for all other symbols on this sixth reel.
One to two scatter symbols transform into xWays symbols, increasing the number of lines on the reels to the right by one, while the free spins feature is advanced with three or four scatter symbols.
The free spins feature with three scatter symbols has seven free spins and three xWays spots remaining on the reels, and with four scatter symbols there are four spots for ten free spins. The xWays on such spots are increased by one for each winning combination. The new center reel scatter symbols do not stay on the reels, but they pay three extra spins for being xWays symbols in that free spin. Note that the line count in the free spins feature is in the 2-3-4-5-6-7 format.
Xways symbols stay stuck during the Free Spins round.
Bonus bets are three of a kind. They are priced at x100, x500 and x542. The two cheapest purchases are the three and four scatter free spins, while the most expensive is the four scatter free spins with Infectious Wild.
Up front, the recycling of xWays and Infectious symbols may not have sounded too good, but the free spins feature with its simple to understand ideas is an interesting implementation. The basic game is the weakness here too, which is silly to say, as its principle is almost similar to the free spins feature, but with the xWays symbols being removed from the reels.
Karen ManEater is based on the theme of the so-called “Karens” that are famous for their rebellious and offensive behavior.
