Mad scientists, labs, smelly potions, scary assistants…you may have seen it all – movies, TV series and even in books. So, why should slot game developers not adopt this theme and make an electrifying online casino game out of it?
That’s what Manic Millions slot is all about. Set in the mad scientist’s laboratory, the old and crazy bearded scientist stands on the left of the reels. A scary looking character, much like Frankenstein stands to the right of the reels. His name is Igor and he seems like a trusty assistant of the mad scientist.
With a funky soundtrack, cartoon-like imagery and a quirky feel, this slot is quite interesting to play. The symbols on the reels also complement the theme really well. There are potion bottles of different colours, a weird plant, 3 slime-ball characters, Igor, an alien mouse and even the mad scientist makes an appearance on the reels. Graphically, NextGen Gaming has done a great job of developing the slot and bringing each and every character to life.
An Overview of Manic Millions Slot
Manic Millions has five reels and 25 pay lines. We liked the fact that it can be played tablets, mobiles as well as on desktops. With the ever-changing and ever-evolving technology, this slot seems to fit right in! You can spend as little as 25p and as much as £625 on a single spin. This slot also comes with three bonus features that include wilds and free spins.
The Symbols to Look Out For!
Most slot games these days have a wild and scatter symbol at the very least. Some slots have more than one scatter and wild symbols. But in Manic Millions slot, there is one wild and one scatter symbol. While the mad scientist is the wild symbol and Manic Millions Bonus is the scatter symbol.
The wild symbol can substitute all other symbols to complete a pay line except the scatter symbol. If you’re able to land five mad scientist symbols on a pay line, it will pay you 40 times your total stake. On the other hand, five Manic Millions Bonus symbols anywhere on the pay line gives you 50 times your stake.
No prizes for guessing that these special symbols often trigger special bonus rounds and features.
But the Igor in this slot has different plans for the players. He has the ability to randomly pull the lever and add the wild symbol to one or more reels. In fact, in the Free Spins round, the Igor can add up to three wild symbols to one or more reels. This is the Igor Wild Bonus feature.
If you’re keen on triggering the Electrifying Free Games feature, you’ll need to collect three or more Manic Millions Bonus symbols on the pay lines. But the Igor Scatter Bonus feature lets the Igor randomly add a scatter symbol to one or more reels in the second, third and fourth reels only. Once this feature is activated, you’ll have 10 free spins to play the slot and continue making some more money.
Although the slot may seem a bit quirky, what with the bizarre characters and the whole cartoon-feel to it, it has the potential to make you a lot of money as the payouts are quite generous. When we played the slot, Igor (the sweet little thing) added wild symbols to three reels in the Electrifying Free Games feature. This resulted in an outrageous 560 times stake win for us! We were quite impressed.
So, this game has a medium to high variance offering and is a lot of fun!
