Ever since Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein, the concept of the mad scientist has entered popular imagination. Several games suppliers to online casinos have created online pokies on this theme. But there are none better than Mad Scientist and Madder Scientist from Betsoft that feature Dr. Walter Prescott. These online pokies can be played at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate.
In the slot game Mad Scientist, Dr. Prescott discovers a formula to convert objects into gold. The symbols on the reels are scientific equipment used by Dr. Prescott, including some weird contraptions. The secret formula written on the blackboard is the wild symbol. The Bio Hazard symbols trigger a bonus game on the reels. You have to pick one of the triggering symbols for bonus credits. The Tesla Coil symbol triggers the Wild’o’Cution feature, which is innovative. The Tesla coils will get charged and the symbols between them will turn into wilds. This will increase the chance of hitting a winning combination. The Great Experiment Bonus is the highlight of this online pokie. It is triggered by the test tube scatter symbols. You enter Dr. Prescott’s laboratory for the final test of the Turn-o-Gold serum. You select four objects that will be tested with the serum. The objects will turn into bronze, silver or gold and you will win bonus credits depending on the success of the experiment.
In Madder Scientist online pokie Dr. Prescott returns with his crazy Turn-o-Gold serum. Prescott has grown older and crazier in the interim. He is helped by a sexy young assistant. Building on the success of Mad Scientist, Betsoft has created a wilder online pokie that is more fun to play. You can see this in the crazy win animations. The beaker symbols trigger a pick an object type bonus game. You keep selecting beakers and winning prizes till there are no beakers left or you reveal the “Collect”. In the Wild Switches feature triggered by the switch symbols one of the reels, chosen randomly, will turn wild for a given number of spins. Test the Serum bonus is activated by the carrot symbols. This time you help Dr. Prescott mix up a new concoction to test on the carrot. You will be awarded instant bonus credits based on the outcome of the test. Madder Scientist introduces an interactive Reel Re-spin feature. After each spin, you may optionally respin any one reel keeping the others fixed by paying an additional cost.
