Powered by Betsoft, Mad Scientist has five reels with three rows and up to twenty active paylines if players choose. The gameplay is set in some stone-built and electrically charged laboratory that is a combination of both Nikola Tesla and Dr Frankenstein.
The theme in Mad Scientist is where the insane scientist, Dr Walter Prescott, has devised a formula that can transform things into gold. Dr Walter Prescott now needs to test his discovery and players are there to help him and be part of this.
From the opening, it is evident that Dr Prescott is not your typical scientist looking for a cure to a virus or disease and to benefit society. Dr Prescott motives are purely wealth-induced, as he is obsessed with money and all his formulae are about fostering more wealth. Players must help the mad scientist and in the process make some nice gold prizes of their own.

Bonus features of Mad Scientist
Great Experiment Bonus Round
The Great Experiment Bonus Round is only activated when players land three or more of the test tube scatter icons anywhere on active paylines. Players will be taken to a secondary screen in which they will observe Dr Prescott pouring a green substance on various objects. Select the object, and players will win cash rewards depending on whether it turns to bronze, silver or gold. Activating this round with more than three test tube icons will also add a multiplier to any wins players make.
Players can trigger the Wild-O-Cution Feature when they obtain any Tesla coils on the first and fifth reels and on the first, second and third paylines. Random icons between these reels and paylines located between these generators will now be electrified wild, and any wins are reevaluated.
Bio Pick Me Bonus
The Bio Pick Me bonus is activated by obtaining three or more of the radiation icons, in sequence, on an enabled payline; merely select one of those icons for a cash reward based on the players bet line stake.
The Mad Scientist sure has user-friendly gameplay and is easy to get started. The high-definition video slot will appeal to both science and sci-fi enthusiasts who enjoy easy online video slots with regular payouts.
