Metal Detector Slots is one of the most oddly themed games we have ever seen. It combines a frankly strange premise based around a device with odd items that would likely never pass through it. It plays well and pays well, and is somewhat comical the longer you go, in a good way. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that they fully embraced making this an odd parody slot, and got a little zanier with the presentation for it.
The premise of Metal Detector Slots is a Metal Detector. Weird, right? We know. But here we are in the world we’re living in with that being a thing. We definitely never would have thought of that in the slightest. Never in a million years would we have made this the premise of a video game, let alone a slot, but it’s fun, inventive, and it works.
Graphics in Metal Detector Slots are quirky and nice. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. The theme makes for some odd items showing up, such as a chalice, fishing lure, and some buff old guy we’re not quite sure should be there. It’s all pretty funny to look at, and would have benefitted if they went more all out in their efforts to make this an odd looking game.
The UI is a bit of an afterthought, but many slots operate that way. In this case, it actually looks kinda funny since the rest of the game does too.
Gameplay in Metal Detector Slots is fairly standard. At 5 reels and 15 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a penny to around $10, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at 75 coins, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review.
There aren’t many bonuses or bonus things to speak of that you’re probably not already used to, but it still manages to be fun like most slots admittedly are. Once the money rolls in, it’s all a good time really.

Who is this Game For?
This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:
* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible
* Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved
* Jaded slot vets
* People that mostly want to win a bunch of money playing digital slot games
* Players looking for slot nostalgia for the similarities and differences this slot has to other games
* People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
Metal Detector Slots is the weirdest themed slot we’ve ever played. We thoroughly enjoyed it for that weird sense of style, nice pay outs, and all the many things we thought while looking at the graphics thinking what else may have been added. It’s light on bonus features, but big on the fundamentals. We really like what we say here, mostly wanting more hours in the day to play it, and lamenting that we don’t live in an area with many metal detectors. If you like what you see and are looking to make it rich, this is a game with you in mind. Give it a spin, have a good time, and let us know what you think about how it all came together!
