The name of this game we are going to review is slightly misleading. The name Manic Millions does not indicate that there is a Frankenstein reference in the game. Neither does it let on that there are funky cartoon characters. And the word Manic in the name is probably the only clue that it features a mad scientist. The name is not the only place where NextGen Gaming has surprises in store. As many as 3 bonus rounds, plus free spins, and of course the Wild, all help to make Manic Millions a highly entertaining game from the house of NextGen. The funky soundtrack, as well as the cartoon style symbols, do goes a long away in making it more attractive. The 5 reel and 25 payline architectures are probably the only features which are orthodox.
Manic Millions – RTP and Maximum Win
You can play Manic Millions on all manner of devices. You need a minimum of 25p to play a round. If you are used to betting big and winning bigger, then you will love the £625 maximum bet. 40 or 50 times the stake are quite common when you win using the special Wild or Scatter symbols. But there are enough features in the game to ensure you can also win 500 times your wager amount. There is also a jackpot of £1250 to aim for. That said, the House advantage is not miniscule, though. So you would be playing for an RTP of just 95.245%, which can by no means be called best in class.
Manic Millions Symbols
The storyboard for Manic Millions is set in a futuristic scientific laboratory. No surprises, then, that the symbols are in high-resolution 3D imagery. The payouts begin as soon as you form a matching combination of three symbols. The best returns, though, come if you match all 5 symbols in a reel. These are some of the crazy symbols you will encounter in this game:
- Potion bottles
- Slime ball character 1
- Slime ball character 2
- Slime ball character 3
- Alien Mouse
- Weird Plant
- Mad Scientist (special character)
- Igor (special character)
Let us talk about the last two special characters named above. The mad scientist symbol is the Wild for the Manic Millions game. If you have a single symbol missing from a winning combination, the mad scientist can bail you out. The Wild can be used to take the place of any other symbol in such a scenario. This is not applicable, though, to the other special symbol of Igor. Additionally, the Mad Scientist can give you payouts of 40 times your bet amount if you land five in a line.
The character of Igor named above acts as the Scatter symbol for Manic Millions. It is based on the character of Frankenstein. With square head, torn clothes, and a zombie-like gait, Frankenstein has been one of the scariest characters ever created. It has been the subject of numerous films and books, and every creator has added his or her own shades. Manic Millions has decided to give Frankenstein a funny twist, instead. And it is bestowed with powers to grant riches to the players. It is the trigger for several bonus rounds, for starters. Additionally, if you land 5 of them anywhere, there is more good news in store. You stand to win 50 times your stake. As we mentioned earlier, this Igor character is a cartoon figure but based on Frankenstein, with two teeth sticking out.
Manic Millions Bonus
Igor the Scatter seems to have some magical powers, and a kind heart. He could pull a lever randomly and grant a Wild to any reel. While the free spin rounds are on (we will come to that in a bit), the number of Wilds he adds goes up to 3! This feature of Manic Millions is called Igor Scatter Bonus feature.
The next thing you can look forward to would be the free spins. The maximum number you can win is 10. This is called the Electrifying Free Games feature.3 or more Wild symbols trigger this feature. On top of it, if the kind Frankenstein Igor adds more Wilds, you stand to win up to 20 free spins from retriggers.
You will love the look and feel of Manic Millions. We tend to associate the character of Frankenstein with the horror genre. But NextGen Gaming has given him a quirky cartoon-like twist in Manic Millions. The other symbols are also good fun, which will help keep you entertained as you play. The rewards you win are a welcome bonus on top of the fun and entertainment. This is one of the most interesting creations of NextGen. Given their huge portfolio of offerings, that is no mean achievement. If you are looking for a wholesome entertainer where you can also win big, then Manic Millions is the game for you.
