Powered by Betsoft Gaming, Madder Scientist is a continuation of the story of Dr Walter Prescott and his attempts at alchemy from the game Mad Scientist. Like Mad Scientist, there are several bonus rounds and lots of high-quality visuals to enjoy.
Madder Scientist features five reels with three rows and up to thirty paylines; the reels spin on the flanks of a giant metal machine that is an update of the original and in the backdrop there are plenty of identifiers that this is the lab of a mad scientist.
The icons are all related to the theme and include Dr Prescott himself, his assistant, a lamp, a dog, a microscope, cells, test tubes and a ‘danger’ sign.
There’s no wild icon, but there are three bonus icons – a switch, a beaker, and a carrot – that each trigger various extra rounds.
Bonus features of Madder Scientist
Click Me is activated by landing three of the beaker icons anywhere on the first, third and fifth reels and all players have to do is pick beakers for cash prizes or some free spins until they find the ‘Collect’ message at which the round is over.
Players can trigger this bonus feature by landing three of the switch icons anywhere in view; one reel will now become wholly wild and remain locked in place for a determined number of respins.
Carrot Bonus Round
Three carrots landing anywhere in view will activate this mini-game, and players will be asked to choose ingredients to test on the carrot in return for cash prizes.
After any main game spin, players can decide to spin any single reel again in the hope of landing another win; this will cost players some extra money relative to their chances of winning and the size of that prize.
Madder Scientist is a better, hyped-up version of the original Mad Scientist and well worth a punt; players will like the various bonus rounds and the Reel Respin feature.
