Frankenstein Monster Inspires Manic Millions, From Nextgen
Manic Millions might not say it, but it’s a pokie machine that is inspired by the story of Frankenstein’s monster. The difference here is that Nextgen created a design based on modern times, so you’re not going to see 19th century lab equipment in there.
Instead, it’s a modern lab, with a hippie looking doctor, but also with the monster that you’re expecting to see, as well as Igor, the assistant.
The features of Manic Millions include wild symbols, scatter symbols and free spins. You get from this game 25 lines, there are 5 reels that host them, while the bigger payouts reach values of 1,250 coins.
What We Love
I’ve seen enough pokie machines with a similar theme, to be happy about seeing one that does it differently. The 21st century approach to the look of the laboratory in which the monster is created means that you’re going to see modern equipment, still electricity based though, as well as various lab recipients in which colored substances are kept.
Besides the Doctor, you also have the image with the game logo, with the monster, a meat eating plant, Igor the mouse assistant, some small creatures, plus six images of bottles with colored liquids in them.
There are two major symbols which will be used to bring features forward. First, I would look at the Doctor, which shows you an old man, with a long beard and wearing a lab coat.
As the wild symbol, it will be often used as part of other combinations if it can substitute for others, but it will also be responsible for its own payouts, which can go up to 1,000 coins. As always, a wild will not take the place of a scatter, no matter what position it lands in.
That other symbol, the scatter, will be represented by an image of a Manic Millions Bonus logo. Having it appear in 3, 4 or 5 positions will first bring you a prize which will be at 125, 375 or 1,250 coins, and then it will also trigger the Electrifying Free Games. In them, there will be 10 free games, with additional wild symbols placed on the reels, thanks to Igor.
What We Do Not Like
For a game with just 25 lines, and not ways to win, payouts of 1,250 coins seem to be on the low side.
Manic Millions will not be a typical Frankenstein themed game, but that’s only where the design is concerned. In other ways, it’s not that special of a title.
