Karen Maneater review
Theme and Storyline
Karen Maneater is themed around the notorious Karen archetype, but with a cannibalistic twist.

Keeping true to type, the Karen character of this slot is angry, entitled, and more than a little annoying. Rather than wait to speak to the manager though, this particular Karen decides to take revenge on mankind by eating human beings.

Karen Maneater’s unique theme might be appealing to fans of horror films. However, some players may find the stereotypes and gore of this slot off-putting.

Graphics, Sounds and Animations
The soundtrack is infused with rugged country vibes, while mournful violin notes add a sombre tone to the game.

Players will instantly notice Karen’s likeness animated in the style of the Kentucky Fried Chicken logo. Her smile is sinister in the shadowy image, while the letters KME appear instead of KFC below her.

Beyond the reels, players will see the dusty remains of a city. A Space Needle silhouette suggests it might be Seattle. A raccoon character, looking more adorable than fierce, regularly appears with utensils in hand.

From guns to toilet paper and batteries, plenty of apocalyptic imagery awaits the players on the reels. Below the reels, meat hangs ready for consumption, and players will wonder if the flesh is human.

Some might feel uneasy with the graphic imagery, and even the controversial portrayal of the Karen character. Karen is animated with an alternative look that deviates from the traditionally feminine, pushing her instead towards a different stereotype.

However, it also seems that Karen Maneater doesn’t take itself too seriously and is revelling in the absurdity of its theme. This may not excuse the unsettling elements for some players.

Overall, the soundtrack and animation create a dystopian horror world with more than an aftertaste that won’t suit everyone.

Gameplay
Karen Maneater has a 2-3-3-3-3 reel structure that can expand to a 2-3-4-5-6-7 reel structure.

Wins are awarded for landing matching symbols in adjacent reels.

Wilds, Bonuses and Free Spins
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol.

The Scatter symbol only appears on the middle four reels, and when a Scatter lands, all the reels to the right of it expand by one position.

The xWays symbol only appears on the middle four reels and transforms to become a regular paying symbol x2-4 in size, increasing the potential wins.

The Infectious xWays symbol only lands on the reel 1 and transforms to reveal a symbol x2-7 in size.

Players can opt into the xBet feature which increases their base bet by +30% and also increases the odds of triggering the Bonus Meal feature.

The Infectious Wild symbol landing on the last reel nudges to the bottom position on the reel, increasing its multiplier with each nudge.

The Bonus Meal feature is triggered when players land 3 Raccoon Scatter symbols. The feature begins with 7 free spins as well as 3 Sticky xWays symbols. If players trigger the feature with 4 Raccoon symbols, the feature begins with 10 free spins and 4 Sticky xWays symbols.

The maximum payout for Karen Maneater is 11,757x players’ base bet.
