A recurring character in literature and cinema, the mad scientist is paid a tribute to in this video slot machine. This game takes you to the heart of his laboratory. Through the items, you will find several elements which inhabit the world of research scientists: a microscope, test tubes, a chemical gas bottle or Tesla conductors, for example. It is quite a catchy theme, executed with humour and imagination, which makes a nice change from the overdone themes such as pirates, ancient civilisations, comics and fantasy.
A very pleasant atmosphere
Graphics are very well-executed in this game. Their visual style borrows from cute and weird elements, which proves very pleasant. Underneath the reels, you\'ll find the mad scientist from whom the game takes his name. Well designed, he has a very friendly face. As soon as the reels start spinning, he turns around to see the result. If you win money, he rejoices. This detail adds a little something which brings life to the game. It gives you the feeling of working with him and taking part in the euphoria of discovery.
Mad Scientist is a slot machine with 5 reels and 20 payment lines, which offers a Scatter and two Wilds, one of which proves itself to be very original. It also offers you the possibility to play a bonus game and to use the Pick me feature.
A wide range of bets
As far as bets go, you can choose from a wide variety of currencies. The following values can be selected: 0,05, 0,10, 0,25, 0,50 or 1 $/€. You can also bet up to 5 coins per payment line. The range of bets is therefore quite wide. It starts from only 0,05 $/€ and runs up to no less than 100 $/€.
The symbol representing a blackboard is wild. It can therefore replace any other symbol to make a winning combination.If you manage to get a Tesla conductor symbol on both ends of the same payment line, the Wild\'o\'cution feature starts. It allows you to change all the symbols in between both conductors in order to form winning combinations.
The symbol depicting a switch is a scatter symbol. It does not need to appear on an activated line to make you win money. You only have to get it 3, 4 or 5 times on screen, anywhere on the reels, to win respectively 50, 100 or 250 coins.
Pick me feature
The radiation symbol launches the Pick me feature. If you manage to get it 3, 4 or 5 times on a single activated payment line, this feature starts. You must then click on one of these radiation signs to break it and get the money it entitles you to.
Collect at least 3 test tubes on a single activated payment line to access the bonus game. The reels then disappear and are replaced by the scientist\'s lab. You must help the scientist to finish the last step of his experiment which aims at creating gold. Start by choosing one object from a book, lead, glass and a microscope. It can then turn to lead, silver or gold. The more precious the obtained metal is, the more money you win. The bonus game ends when you have transformed the four objects.
The atmosphere of Mad Scientist proves very pleasant with its cute and funny graphics. Also, the game offers many fun features. These are good reasons to enjoy this very well-executed slot machine!
