Manic Millions is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot powered by NextGen Gaming. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 25p to £625 per spin, you are taken to a mad scientist’s laboratory. It has 3 bonus features including free spins and wilds.

Graphically, it has cartoon style imagery and a funky soundtrack. Set in a lab, you will see the crazy bearded scientist to the left of the reels and a Frankenstein type character (Igor)to the right of the reels. With a quirky feel, symbols on the reels include lots of potion bottles, Igor, 3 slime ball characters, an alien mouse and a weird plant.

The scientist is the wild symbol and gives you 40 times your total stake for 5 on a payline – it also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The scatter is the Manic Millions Bonus symbol with 5 of them anywhere in view giving you 50 times your stake.

When it comes to features, look out for Igor who can randomly pull a lever to add a wild to 1 or more reels – in the free spins, Igor may add up to 3 wilds to 1 or more reels. This is known as the Igor Wild Bonus feature.

To trigger the Electrifying Free Games feature, you need 3 or more Manic Millions Bonus symbols – however, there’s an Igor Scatter Bonus feature where Igor can randomly add a scatter to 1 or more reels (the 3 middle ones).

Once you’re in, you will receive 10 free spins – as mentioned, Igor can randomly add up to 3 wilds to 1 or more reels. If he does so, it will effectively be a wild reel as there are 3 positions on each reel. Better still is the fact you can retrigger the feature giving you 20 free spins.

Manic Millions may be fun and quirky but it has potential to pay out very big – I’ve managed to get Igor add wilds to 3 reels during the Electrifying Free Games feature which resulted in a 560 times stake win. I consider this game to be a medium to high variance offering. If you like the science theme, there’s quite a few to choose from including Quickspin’s Gold Lab and Yggdrasil Gaming’s Cyrus the Virus.
