You don’t get what you expect with BetSoft Gaming’s Mad Scientist slot. Like us, you were probably expecting a Frankenstein-esque themed slot, but that is not remotely what you will find in this title. Instead, BetSoft Gaming has decided to make this slot themed what amounts to a high-school science teacher, and a rather nutty one at that. Played over 5 reels and 20 lines, this is one of the simpler BetSoft Gaming developed slots you may come across.
Mad Scientist offers players a simple structure to bet with. Players can alter the paylines as they see fit, although not on a 1-click, 1-line basis. They can also alter the value of their coins from 2p up to £1. Players can wager as many as 5 of these per spin, bringing the wagering range from 2p per line, per spin, up to £100 per spin.
Symbols in this game include a bottle, a microscope, a lever, a machine, gigawatt counters, danger signs, electrical orbs, and science emblems. The orb is the best paying symbol in this slot machine, offering up a non-progressive prize which is worth 5,000 coins if you can bag 5 such symbols on a line. The other symbols can see you win between 5 and 2,500 coins apiece.
It is unusual for BetSoft Gaming to include wilds, but there is a wild symbol in this slot. It takes on the form of a chalkboard filled with equations. This wild symbol cannot offer you wins on its own, but it can substitute for all other symbols, save for bonus icons.
Scatter symbols appear as levers, and they can offer you scattered wins when 3 or more appear anywhere on the screen.
An instant cash prize can be won if players land 3 of the biohazard symbols anywhere on the screen. You can win as much as 175 coins with this feature.
Players can also land the Wild’ o’ Cution bonus in this game, by landing machine symbols on the reels. This could see all icons on a single row instantly turn into wild symbols.
Great Experiment bonus
If players scoop up 3 test-tube symbols on a payline (they are not scatter icons), they will trigger the Great Experiment bonus. In this feature, players can pocket multiplied winnings and select from the 4 objects displayed on the second screen. Those test-tubes will either turn into bronze, silver, or gold. Winning will then be paid out based on those symbols.
The features of the Mad Scientist slot seem to be very generic, and don’t fit in with the kind of symbols we usually see from BetSoft Gaming. Mad Scientist is very much a predictable kind of slot, and although its theme is rather dull, you may just get a kick out of some of these features. This is especially true if you are used to playing BetSoft Gaming slots, but want something which breaks from tradition for the developers.
