The latest NextGen 3D video slot, Manic Millions, is a true proof that science can be both fun and lucrative. Thematically, Manic Millions is clearly inspired by Frankenstein and other Mad Scientist characters, frequently encountered in popular culture. The action takes place inside the spooky secret laboratory, where the Scientist resides with his faithful servant, Igor.
Apart from the two characters who are accompanying you through this Goth novel adventure, the slot features some of the artifacts every well equipped laboratory should have. The symbols you will be particularly eager to see on the reels are Professor Mouse, Carnivorous Plant and The Green Men. The icons with lower value are Chemistry Bottles with different colour chemical compounds.
What We Love
The theme of the game is extremely fun and not frequently exploited, giving the slot an air of freshness. We absolutely loved how the characters are portrayed and how the cheerful music complimented the atmosphere of the Mad Scientist’s Castle. If you have ever been a fan of Dr Frankenstein movie adaptations, you will definitely adore Manic Millions.
The extra features can be re – activated, which is always highly appreciated. Although you may think that this is pretty standard, you would be surprised how many slots does not have re-triggerable bonus features. One thing that also caught our eye was the Igor Wild and Igor Scatter feature. This can happen in both bonus and main game. With Igor adding Scatter and Wild symbols on the reels, the chance of winning combination is significantly increased.
What We Do Not Like
Although we are devoted fans of the theme and the music, we were slightly surprised by the low return to player percentage. The RTP is calculated at 95.25%, which means that Manic Millions is high to medium variance slot. This is somewhat compensated by the range of total bet per spin.
The minimum stake is $0.25 and the maximum is $250.00 making the slot suitable for different budget players. Even so, one can easily find a higher RTP slot with the same bet range, therefore this percentage can be marked as a slot’s “con”. It would however be fair to note one thing. The low percentage of return can only be taken as a relative drawback. There are some players who actually enjoy high variance slots, although general opinion is often against them.
Aesthetics aside, Manic Millions is worth a try, even with the “high to medium” variance factor. With the lowest possible stake of $0.25, the slot is easily affordable and you are likely to enjoy it for an extended period of time. Provided of course you decide to overlook the return to player percentage.
If you are willing to do that, or if you like that type of games, Manic Millions will not disappoint. Outgoing people will particularly appreciate the fact that the slot can be played across all platforms, but that comes as no surprise with NextGen releases.
