Psycho is one of the most eagerly awaiting games ever to be developed by NextGen Gaming. You will probably all be familiar with its theme, especially if you’ve seen the Alfred Hitchcock movie of the same name. Psycho is thematic, and faithful to the original cult classic film.
The video slot uses the famous shower curtain as its backdrop, and the Bates Motel is behind that. Psycho is played over 5 reels, with 25 lines there for betting on. You can adjust the line bets from 0.01 up to 2.00 per line, allowing you to stake between 0.25 and 50.00 per spin. You won’t be able to change the number of lines, though.
The wild is easy to spot – it has wild written across it after all – and can substitute for all symbols save for the scatter. Wins with wilds are multiplied by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x or 20x, which is stunning, especially as wilds are the second best paying symbols in the slot.
The Bates house is the scatter icon, and it is the best paying symbol. It can offer coin wins of 25, 50, 375 or 2,500 coins for 2, 3, 4 or 5 icons appearing anywhere on screen. At any point in the game, wild symbols may be stabbed onto the screen, offering a surplus of ways to win.
Free spins bonus
Now, back to that scatter icon. If you land 3, 4 or 5 of them in any position on the reels, you will trigger a free games bonus consisting of 10, 15 or 20 free games. During this bonus, additional wilds can appear, and multipliers can be increased to up to 40x their normal rate of pay. This is a very prosperous free spins feature.
There are many film themed slots out there that simply fail to deliver. Take NextGen Gaming’s Judge Dredd, for instance. However, Psycho is not one of them. This slot delivers big time, and offers some of the best and more enjoyable mobile slot gameplay you can currently have on the net.
