Dr Victor Frankenstein was the scientist who animated the monster in Mary Shelley’s famous novel, and the story has provided inspiration for several movies, shows, comics and other books over the years. Now a NetEnt online Video Slot can be added to that list.
The game has a maximum of 20 paylines, which are played out across 5 reels. The betting range is 0.01 to 100 per spin, so you should be able to play to win no matter what the size of your budget is. It is, however, also possible to play free without making a deposit, which is a good option on the days that you just want to relax and enjoy playing without any financial pressures, or when you have used up all your allotted Slots funds for the day. It also means that you can get comfortable with the game before placing any real money wagers.
When you are ready to spin for winnings, the base game Top Jackpot of 1500x the total stake and the theoretical RTP of 96.7% should make you happy. To maximise your chances of winning, you can also activate the AutoPlay mode on the days when you are very busy. This will keep the reels turning on their own, as you carry on with other tasks.
Frankenstein Slot Look and Feel
The game is set in the Doctor’s laboratory, with apparatus for experiments and chains lining the stone walls of the room. The lower-value symbols are the usual playing cards, with their strange font adding to the creepy feeling of the game. Higher-value regular symbols include Fritz the loyal servant, a brain in the jar, and images of Dr Frankenstein and his creation.
The soundtrack is kept minimal, which enhances the eerie atmosphere, while authentic land-based Slot machine sounds will make the game feel more realistic. Wins are also punctuated by animations and sound effects that reflect the theme and storyline.
Frankenstein Slot Special Features
The special features in this game are triggered by symbols that take its theme even further. The Wild Symbol is a silver disc similar to what was used with lightning to give life to the monster in the story. This will substitute for any regular reel icon to complete paying line-ups and will arc out to turn 2 or more adjacent symbols into Wilds, which further increases your winning opportunities, when it appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4.
The Scatter Symbol, represented by a windmill like the one that is so famously featured in the Frankenstein story, is the only icon that the Wild can’t stand in for. Like the Scatters in various machines at, when the Scatter is seen at least 3 times anywhere on the reels, rather than only lined up on an activated payline, the Free Spins Round is triggered.
You’ll be awarded 10 Free Spins at this point, which will trigger another 5 or 10 free turns if you spin 2 or 3 more windmills respectively. During the Free Spins Round a multiplier will also appear on Reel 5. The Bonus Round also has a Fire Wild Feature, replacing the usual Wild Symbol. The Fire Wild is guaranteed to appear on every spin during the bonus, which seriously increases your takings.
