Slot Overview

Ever wondered what it would be like to embark on a thrilling gem-stealing escapade in the dead of night? Well, developer Relax Gaming brings you just that with their online slot, Midnight Marauder. In this game, you'll step into the shoes of a crafty crook, set on a mission to snatch precious gems under the cover of darkness. Of course, we don't endorse real marauding, but in this lighthearted slot, you'll experience an ingenious Collect & Multiplier feature as you explore the night and unleash your inner rogue.

Midnight Marauder unfolds on a 6x6 game grid, where clusters of matching symbols lead to fantastic wins. While the grid itself might seem plain and a bit generic, filled with humdrum symbols, the rest of the screen depicts a nighttime scene, complete with a sneaky burglar tiptoeing around. Relax Gaming takes a cartoonish, jokey approach, making the lovable burglar character even more endearing. If you've played the classic Microgaming slot, Bust the Bank, you'll get a similar vibe here. It's all about keeping things fun and breezy, though some picky players might find the game panel and symbols a bit too straightforward for their taste.

Ready to embrace the world of pretend marauding? Midnight Marauder offers you the chance to do just that on any device, with bets ranging from $0.20 to $16 per spin. Brace yourself for a highly volatile game, where Midnight Marauder delivers a default RTP of 96.19%, which climbs to 96.87% when you buy free spins. That's a nice touch, but here's the thing - whether you stick to the base game or venture into the bonus rounds for an extended period, there's not much difference in the excitement level (as we'll explain later).

To get your hands on wins, you'll need to form clusters with at least five matching symbols landing in adjacent positions, either vertically or horizontally. The sparkling gems of various shapes and colors take center stage as the regular pays, with individual values ranging from 0.1 to 2 times the stake. Keep in mind that Midnight Marauder doesn't feature any wild symbols, so it's all about the scatter symbol adding to the thrill of your heist adventure.

Slot Features

The heart of Midnight Marauder lies in its thrilling Collect & Multiplier feature, accessible both in the base game and during free spins. Here's the scoop on how it works: whenever a winning cluster lands, the collected loot is stored on the grid as a swag bag icon. An exciting respin is then triggered, and if another winning symbol lands next to the bag collection symbol, it's added to the stash, earning you another respin. As the action unfolds, any new winning clusters also transform into single bag symbols, and you guessed it – more respins come your way!

Once the respins conclude, it's time to tally up your loot. The total multiplier value on the bags (representing the number of collected winning symbols) is applied to the symbol's value, leading to some fantastic rewards. But here's where the real heist tactics come into play: if you manage to gather multiple bags of the same symbol type, their multipliers combine before being applied to the individual symbol value. So, it's all about strategizing and maximizing your gains as you navigate this gem-studded caper.

Free Spins

Of course, no marauding adventure is complete without a thrilling round of free spins! Land three scatter symbols, and you'll be generously rewarded with 8 free spins. But wait, there's more – for each additional triggering bonus symbol that graces your screen, you'll get an extra two free spins to bolster your loot-filled escapade. The free spins operate under the same rules as the base game, ensuring the action stays just as exciting. And as you navigate your way through the free spins round, every scatter symbol that lands in view gifts you with an additional free spin, further extending your heist time.

Buy Feature

If you're feeling like you can't wait to kickstart your marauding adventure, the Buy Feature is the way to go! Subject to availability in your jurisdiction, you can purchase free spins by wagering 100 times your bet. This guarantees a game round with a free spins activation, so you can dive right into the heart of the heist action without delay. It's a bold move, but for the most daring and impatient among us, the Buy Feature is the ticket to an adrenaline-pumping heist.

Slot Verdict

At first glance, Midnight Marauder didn't quite steal our hearts. The gameboard felt somewhat unfinished, with plain reels and gems that took time to assess their values. But as we settled in and witnessed the Collect & Multiplier feature in action, the game quickly won us over. The exponential multiplying process wasn't immediately apparent, but when multi clusters started hitting, the possibilities came alive, and we found ourselves eagerly scouting for potential cluster adds to swell those swag bags.

The game's charm lies in its playful slapstick burglar and catchy soundtrack, adding to the engaging experience. Winning clusters applied to each other proved shockingly effective, and during our test rounds, we achieved some spectacular results, keeping in mind the game's impressive max win potential of 30,000x the bet. With so much multiplying excitement, that figure felt tantalizingly achievable, though not without a teasing challenge.

Much like Relax's Plunderland, Midnight Marauder is simple yet captivating, and it's hard to resist the challenge it offers. The thrill of boosting bags and seeing values skyrocket in an instant makes each symbol drop utterly absorbing. Constantly darting our eyes across the board, we searched for potential wins, and when it all fell into place, the rewards were righteous, in a Bill & Ted sense of the word.

However, while Midnight Marauder excels in many aspects, it does leave us wanting a little more. Adding premiums with a bit more personality and some extra flair to the base game and bonus round could have pushed the game beyond its already impressive 8/10 rating.
