Frankenstein : A Net Entertainment-Universal Pictures Monster Movie Slot Game
Frankenstein is a five-reel video slot with 20 non-fixed and selectable paylines. The slot's game presentation takes inspiration from Frankenstein, one of Universal Picture's collections of Monster Films. Net Entertainment succeeded in creating a slot that exudes the vintage appeal of an excellent and enduring classic movie, representing one of the best horror films of all times.
The game's main attraction is Net Entertainment's Linked Wild™ technology, a special Wild substitution mechanism that allows a Wild symbol to turn adjacent icons into additional Wilds. The Wild transformations occur before any icon substitution takes place. In all likelihood, the occurrence creates greater chances of maximizing the outcome of a single spin.
In this Frankenstein video slot, the Lightning Wild in the base game and the Fire Wild in the Bonus Free Spins Game represents the Linked Wild™.
The Lightning Wild Symbol
The Lightning Wild depicts Dr. Frankenstein's use of electricity in creating The Monster. In the main game, the Lightning Wild emerges on reels two (2), three (3) or four (4). Prior to any Wild substitution actions, the Lightning Wild bolts electricity to the nearby regular icons, and in the process turns them into extra Wild Symbols. The occurrence of course, creates a massive impact as several matched payline combinations could form and result to multiple wins.
The Fire Wild Symbol
This Net Entertainment Frankenstein online slot awards free spins that guarantee the appearance of a Fire Wild Symbol in every spin outcome. Similar to the Lighting Wild Symbol in the base game, the Fire Wild also occurs in reels two (2), three (3) or four (4). It also creates the Linked Wilds effect of turning neighboring symbols into additional Wilds.
However, the Lightning and the Fire Wild Symbols serve as substitutes for all regular icons only. Those being the images of Dr. Frankenstein, The Monster, Fritz ( the Hunchback Lab Assistant) and The Brain, as well as the usual A, K, Q, J , 10 and 9 symbols.
The Windmill Scatter Symbol
Three Windmill icons that come into view during the Frankenstein base game sets off ten (10) bet-free spins in the Burning Mill Bonus Game. The Windmill, being a Scatter Symbol, creates an impact regardless of where such symbols land across the reel. When two or three Windmill Scatters appear during the free round, five (5) or ten (10) more bet free spins, are triggered.
This slot game though does not award Scatter Pays.
The Burning Mill Bonus Game
The bet free spins during the Burning Mill Bonus Game pay equivalent coin rewards in folds. Frankenstein Bonus Game players should keep an eye on the fifth reel where the multiplier appears. The Multiplier starts with 1x and progresses up to 5x, every time the Multiplier Symbol emerges. Once it reaches the cap, all payline wins achieved in the remaining bonus game earns payouts at 5x the value of the standing bet. However, the bet value multiplier does not apply to wins achieved via the extra free spins.
Frankenstein has special win-boosting features that could create massive wins with just a spin. For a Universal Pictures-branded game though, it seems to lack the "oomph" possessed by other spectacular Net Entertainment slot contents
