Under the Bed Game Characteristics
Under the Bed’s setting is the children’s bedroom, wherein its partitioned 5X3 grid is embedded on a king size bed’s headboard. White headboard bars form the partitions, while the black-numbered headboard’s legs indicate the 30 left-to-right adjustable paylines.
More Under the Bed’s characteristics: eleven coin denominations, five bet levels, 935 total bets, win multiplier, bonus game, one batch free games, locked wild reel, side game, and regularly pays from $5.00 to $2500.00.
Under the Bed has twelve symbols. It has seven special symbols. Four “wild”-revealing monsters: one-eyed orange-and-yellow monster; open-mouthed five-eyed orange monster; tentacled, one-toothed, and one-eyed green monster; and owl-like long-beaked monster bird. The substitute is a square, yellow-lined, and gray “? wild” flagstone. The free games-triggering feature is a glass door. The monstrous bonus game-unlocking feature is the white king size bed.
Five ordinary symbols: scared, bespectacled blonde Jane with ponytails; alert, redhead Jesse; their parents’ legs—father in blue trousers and mother in a red skirt; orange bedside lamp; and open casement window overlooking a full moon.
Under the Bed’s coin sizes: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.15, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, and $1.00. Active paylines: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 29, or 30. Minimum bet: $0.01. Maximum bet: $150.00.

3+-of-a-kind of a double-framed monster prompts the substituting “wild” flagstone whose numbering indicates the allotted rounds for the locked wild. 3+ scattered beds load the bonus game.
Players select one after another card among the five lined up face-down cards—orange, blue, light green, purple, or red cards—that then reveals the children-scaring monster and the won credits; the bonus ends when players reveal the parents’ “collect” card.
The glass door may appear on reel three, prompting twelve wins-doubling free games. Regular games-related wins (from ordinary symbols only) can be gambled in a side game; after rolling the three dices and adding up the landed pips, players guess if there will be an odd or even number. Non-progressive jackpot: $105000.00.
The good Under the Bed software: icons embedded on the headboard; desktop and mobile versions; quick spin; and 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, and 100 autospins. Sounds: soggy, chirp, sigh, white noise, whoosh, creak, whimper, and snort. The cinematic brief videos: monstrous visitations where the creatures peep, levitate, bounce, and sneak on the scared children; crawling spider, reassuring mother, and long hand reaching out.
