Manic Millions House Review
NextGen’s Manic Millions is a crazy ride of a game, where you team up with the mad scientist Doctor Cranium and his assistant Igor who, by the way, looks eerily like Frankenstein’s creature! If you get your experiments right, you could end up winning as much as £25,000!
To begin playing Manic Millions, you need to decide how much you wish to bet. The minimum you can bet is 25p and the maximum is £250. That is a huge betting range, so it allows for players of a wide array of betting strategies to enjoy this slot machine.
Setting your bet requires you to choose the number of paylines you want active and the coin value you wish to use. While finalising these details, it is wise to keep this game’s volatility and RTP in mind. Manic Millions has an RTP of 95.24% and its variance is on the higher side. Because of this, it will not be easy to snag those big wins. In fact you will need to spin the reels numerous times before you get lucky.
Therefore, it is best to activate all 25 paylines and keep your coin value as small as possible. This way you will be able to enjoy the higher winning potential from all paylines being activated and you will increase your chances of landing wins by playing more games.
Once you have set the bet you desire, then you can click on play to start the game.
Winning in Manic Millions requires you to form winning combinations of 3, 4 or even 5 identical symbols on the reels. If you land the lower-value symbols such as the bottles of coloured chemicals, you can win a maximum of 100x your bet. The strange Blobs and the assistant Mouse can win you a maximum of 125x your bet. The Plant gives you a big win of 250x your bet and the Igor Status will award you 500x your bet.
Additional Game Features
To win the big prizes, you need to trigger the additional game features, so let’s understand them well before we go down to Doctor Cranium’s lab!
- Doctor Cranium Wild
Doctor Cranium is the Wild in this game and he can act as a substitute for all other symbols. He cannot, however, replace the Scatter which is the game logo bonus.
If you land 2 or more Wilds along a payline then you can win cash prizes!
- 2 Doctors on the reels mean 10x wins
- 3 Doctors on the reels mean 50x wins
- 4 Doctors on the reels mean 200x wins, and
- 5 Doctors on the reels mean 1,000x wins
- Manic Millions Logo Scatter
The Logo of this game is the Scatter and if you land at least 3 of them anywhere on the reels, you can win the Free Games bonus feature and instant cash!
- Land 3 Logos and you win 125x your bet!
- Land 4 Logos and you win 375x your bet.
- And land 4 Logos to win 1,250x your bet.
- Electrifying Free Games Feature
When the Logos trigger the Electrifying Free Games feature, you are awarded 10 free games. During this game, Igor can help you by adding as many as 3 Wilds to the reels.
If you land 3 or more Scatters during this feature, you can trigger the bonus feature all over again. You can win a maximum of 20 free games before you go back to the base game.
- Igor Wild Bonus
Igor flips a switch which can generate Wilds on the reels. He can do this both in the base game as well as the bonus feature. In the base game, the assistant will add 1 Wild on 1 or more reels. But in the Electrifying Free Games feature, you can get as many as 3 Wilds!
- Igor Scatter Bonus
After you have spun the reels, Igor can randomly add the Logo Scatter to 2, 3 and/or 4. If you land at least 2 Scatters, you will be awarded a prize!
These randomly triggered bonus features can significantly increase your chances of winning at Manic Millions!
Manic Millions by NextGen is a science-themed game; well, at least mad-science-themed! The gamescape is really wonderfully designed, here you can see Doctor Cranium’s underground laboratory in the background. To one side of the reels stands the Doctor himself, and to the other side his assistant Igor.
The reelscape is designed to look like some kind of electric conductor, and we love the way the animations work when Igor pull his electricity-generating level to trigger the bonus games.
The music in the base game is jazzy and upbeat. And when the bonus games are triggered, we love the way the tempo picks up. The animations in the game are also so charming! The little jig that both the mad doctor and Igor do when you land a big win is so much fun!
The graphics, sounds, animations and overall game design of Manic Millions definitely makes it one of our favourite slot machines!
Manic Millions is a wonderfully designed game that will keep you entranced just by its excellent visuals and sounds. But it goes further than that. The gameplay is exciting, and thanks to the many bonuses, you can keep landing a steady stream of wins. And it certainly helps that you can end up with a bonus of 1,250x your bet!
