Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine: Demo
Visually, Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine is absolutely brilliant – set in Tesla’s laboratory, it has a dark and sinister feel which adds to the excitement. With A, K, Q and J card suits on the reels, you’ll also come across an assortment of devices used by Tesla (capacitors, goggles and stopwatches).
The stopwatch is the most rewarding symbol giving you 1, 4 or 40 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. Tesla is the wild – he substitutes for all the usual symbols and pays like the high value stopwatch. It’s worth noting that winning combinations are formed from left to right starting from reel 1.
Look out for 3 similar symbols (bar the wild and free spins scatter) appearing on the 3rd reel as that will trigger the Energy Burst feature. The low value symbols (the card suits) will give you 3 bonus spins whilst the high value capacitor, goggle and stopwatch symbols will give you 5 bonus spins. You will then play 1 of 3 extras:
- Wild Substitution – a random symbol is chosen and is converted into a wild when it appears during a bonus spin.
- Reel Clone - 3 randomly chosen reels are linked to display the same symbol arrangement. The linked reels remain in place for all bonus spins.
- Exploding Wild – 2 or 3 randomly chosen symbols are replaced by fixed wilds which stay in position for all bonus spins.
Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine also comes with a Free Spins feature – this is played when you get 3 or more free spins scatters. Your reward will be 8, 10 or 12 free spins respectively. During the feature, winning combinations are formed from both sides meaning they can start from reel 5 as well as from reel 1.
Prior to the first free spin, a fixed wild is placed on the central position of reel 3 – you will begin at Level 1. If a Level Up scatter appears on reels 1 or 5, the level will increase – up to maximum Level 5. With each level you reach, another fixed wild is added to the reels.
Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine looks fantastic – 1 of the best ever I must admit. I do like the Energy Burst feature due to the 3 extras. However, for me it’s about the Free Spins feature due to the fixed wilds and 5 levels. Medium to high variance, you can win up to 4,100 times your stake in total with up to 1,000 times your stake per spin or free spin (by filling the reels with Tesla wilds and/or stopwatches.
Overall, Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine is a good collaboration between Yggdrasil Gaming and Rabcat Gambling – hopefully there’s more to come from this partnership. If you like laboratories, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Alchymedes is recommended.
