The Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness slot is played on a 5×5, Cluster Pays grid. Winning combinations are created by landing clusters of symbols. These clusters can be formed vertically, horizontally or a combination of both (but not diagonally).

Bet levels here range from between 10p and £100 per spin. Changing your stake is easily done with plus and minus buttons below the reels where you’ll see 5 levels displayed. There’s a Turbo Mode function for faster spins. Click on the lightning bolt icon to enable this. You will also find an Auto Play facility with win/loss limits.

The Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness RTP is 96.2% which is the standard figure for a Play ‘n GO release. The volatility here is in the medium to high bracket. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d put the variance at about a 7.

Theme – Audio & Design Features – head to Alice Cooper’s parallel universe

Theme: Horror

High Value Symbol: Heart

Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

The Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness slot is based on 1 of the most outrageous performers from the world of rock, Alice Cooper. He is known as The Godfather of Shock Rock. With that in mind, this game was never going to be full of fluffy kittens and rainbows. With a horror theme, there’s a suitably dark, almost horror feel to the design.

Set in Alice Cooper’s parallel universe, you are taken to the city of his latest musical tour venue. There’s a suitably raucous soundtrack blasting away while you spin. It all works very well.

The reels are made up of 4 different skull symbols which spin alongside higher paying spider, cross, snake and heart symbols. The heart is the highest value symbol giving you 200 x stake for 15 or more.

The Tome of Madness is the game’s wild symbol. That substitutes for all the standard symbols. Alice himself, sporting a dapper white top hat, is the game’s stacked Mega Wild. The golden key, embellished with skull and serpent, is the game’s scatter symbol.

Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness Bonus Features

If you like slots that offer plenty of variety, then you won’t be disappointed with what Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness has to offer. With 7 bonus features, there’s plenty going on. This includes a quartet of modifiers that can trigger following a winless spin, Mega Wilds, added wilds and free spins with potential multipliers and modifiers.

Cascade feature

Land a winning cluster and the Cascade feature is triggered. A cascade then follows. The winning symbols are blasted off the grid and new symbols drop in and replace them. A new payout consideration the follows. The cascades continue as long as a new winner is created.

Reality Effects features

Following a winless spin in the base game, you could benefit from 1 of the following 4 Reality Effects features:

Insane Asylum feature transform high paying symbols into the same high paying symbol
The Dungeon feature transforms low paying symbols into different high paying symbols
Chamber of Horrors feature symbols are destroyed and wilds are left in their place
Temptation Room feature a wild is added and symbols transform into the same symbol

Alice Cooper Mega Wild feature

Each key that lands is collected and a wild is left behind. Collect 3 keys to unlock the stacked Alice Cooper Mega Wild feature. This Mega Wild fills the whole of a reel. The Alice Cooper Mega Wild is added to reels 2, 3 or 4 when there are no more wins from that set of cascades. This new wild can walk left or right between cascades until it walks off the reels.

Hat of Madness feature

Each time you land a winning combination, those symbols charge the Hat of Madness. If you collect 10 or more charges during a single set of cascades, you’ll trigger the Hat of Madness feature. The more charges, the better the potential rewards:

10 symbols 1-2 wilds added on next cascade + spread across grid
25 symbols 3-6 wilds added on next cascade + spread across grid
50 symbols 3 Reality Spins
75 symbols 3 Reality Spins with a 2x multiplier
85 symbols 3 Reality Spins with a 5x Multiplier

Reality Spins feature

If you collect enough charges to trigger the Reality Spins feature, you’ll head to a new screen when there are no more cascade wins. You’ll then get to choose one of the following Reality Effects: Insane Asylum; The Dungeon; Chamber of Horrors; Temptation Room.

The chosen Reality Effect modifier is triggered at the end of each of the 3 Reality Spins. The Alice Cooper Mega Wild resets at the start of the Reality Spins. You can still land an Alice Cooper Mega Wild on each Reality Spin. Each time it moves, you could also see between 3 and 6 extra wilds added to the reels.

Originality








Alice Cooper doesn’t feature on any of my Spotify playlists but even though I’m not really a fan of the music, I  rather liked the Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness slot.  The design is terrific and the gameplay offers plenty of variety courtesy of the Reality Effects and the Hat of Madness extras.

The key to big wins is to trigger the Reality Spins feature with a 5x multiplier. That said, a 3,000 x stake max win per spin or free spin is lower than most Play ‘n GO slot games. That said, Play ‘n GO have already released Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness which offers 2,000 x stake max payouts.

If you’re a rock fan or you just enjoy a slot with a hint of horror and plenty of bonus features, Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness is worth a closer look. However, ZZ Top Roadside Riches (also by Play ‘n GO) is a much better game with 40,000 x stake max wins.

Pros
  • Superb theme/graphics
  • Lots of bonus features
  • Brilliant soundtrack
Cons
  • 3,000 x stake max wins
