Madder Scientist Pokie Review
This 5-reel 30-payline pokie by Betsoft seems to have been released following the success of an earlier release, Mad Scientist. But it does not: it is a brand new video slot, with way advanced 3D graphics, cutting-edge animation, top rank soundtrack and, of course, with higher stakes and madder features. Up to $2500 wins in base rounds go with an incredible tool to control the gameplay: a Reel Respin! There is also a wild symbol, wild reels and two bonus games. Taken as a whole, Dr. Prescott’s lab is one of the most exciting places in online casinos worldwide. By the way, Dr. Prescott hired a hot assistant making a nice company for an Aussie who plays the Madder Scientist pokie for real money.
Gameplay: the madder the better
Let’s start from the basics of Dr. Prescott’s science and then move on to the advanced level. A coin value is set between $0.01 and $1.00. A bluish Select Lines vessel sets from 1 to 30 paylines. A green-glowing beaker Bet per Line sets a bet between 1 and 5 coins per line. So, at this lab wagers come in the range between $0.01 and $150 per spin.
Pokie symbols: welcome to the lab
There are 8 payable symbols and 3 bonus triggers. Payable symbols pay from left to right, at that the icons of lower values ranging between x10 and x200 pay out when there are 3 of a kind on an active payline. Four symbols of a higher value ranging between x5 and x500 (up to $2500 moneywise at the maximum bet of $5 per line) pay when there are at least 2 of a kind on an active payline. There are also 3 bonus triggers: Wild Switches, Beakers and Carrots, each disclosed in a respective section below.
Reel Respin feature: get it under control
When the reels stop after a spin, each reel features a RESPIN sign. It is a Reel Respin feature, a sort of a nudge but more complex. Respins are not free, each reel has its price in credits, but this tool is beneficial for a gambler. Firstly, it allows completing the lines when one is short of a symbol (or two or three); yet it is tricky because you have to remember line patterns or check the paytable before each respin. Still, this is not a problem for a sharp-minded gambler, and a fair chance to score a fat stash.
Secondly, with Reel Respins you may collect bonus triggers that activate special features. Respins are unlimited: you may respin any reel as many times as you please, each time at a price shown on a respective reel.
The feature allows plotting a strategy, for instance, in order to collect bonus triggers. Re-spinning the reels at the lowest price of 1 credit, you can collect, say 3 Wild Switches and trigger a wild reel feature, or 3 Beakers to start a Click Me feature or 3 Carrots to activate a Carrot Bonus Round. Sooner or later a much needed icon will appear. Note that changing a coin value or a bet size before a respin deactivates the feature for the next spin.
Wild Reel: a madder Wild
Three Wild Switches scattered on the reels trigger a Wild Reel feature. A randomly chosen reel becomes entirely wild for 5 spins and it will substitute for any normal symbol. If a wild switch appears anywhere on the reels during a Wild Reel mode, an additional Wild Reel spin is awarded. This enticing feature may earn you stunning prizes so you should not miss the opportunity. Remember the strategy to collect wild switches and go for it.
Click Me feature: cash and free spins at stake
It is a double-sided feature: landing 3 Beakers on the reels activates Click Me bonus rounds. Each beaker asks for a click with a flashing Click Me sign; clicking earns coins and free spins. When the feature is over, the win is paid and free spins start earning and adding money to your balance. Again, you may try your luck with the Reel Respin feature with a purpose of re-spinning the reels until 3 Beakers are collected: a strategy that does earn!
Carrot Bonus Round: turning veggies into banking metals
Landing 3 Carrots on the reels activates a Carrot bonus round. You are offered 3 vessels with some colored liquid and should select which liquid to add into a beaker. Each guess earns some coins; then Dr. Prescott makes a potion with the suggested components and drops it on a carrot. Depending on a result, the Carrot may turn bronze, silver or gold – the earned coins are then multiplied and paid.
Bottom line on Madder Scientist
This 5-reel 30-payline pokie powered by Betsoft is an example of recent scientific advances in terms of animation, graphics and intricacy of features. Though base wins of up to $2500 may look modest, a Reel Respin feature endows an Aussie with tight control over the gameplay and makes luck more tractable. A Wild Reel feature and two bonus rounds assist a lot in terms of winning as well as having fun. Dr. Prescott assures: fun has never been as mad as it is with Madder Scientist pokie. It is perfectly compatible with any mobile device of your choice.
