The latest slot by NextGen is set in an electrifying lab of an eccentric professor who shares it with the products of his experiments.
So, don’t be surprised if you come across a human-like monster, mean-looking mutant mouse, carnivorous plant and other creepy creatures.
Despite their quirky appearance all of the creatures are pretty funny and friendly and they are there to help. Especially Igor because he will add extra Wilds and extra Scatters to both your base game and bonus game.
The animation is spectacular, delivered in crisp and bright graphics and accompanied by fun soundtrack. You will definitely enjoy this 5 reel 25 payline spinner.
When you hear that NextGen is behind a slot, you can count on exciting, fun and action-packed game and stunning imagery.
Manic Millions definitely proves their ability to keep the leading position in the ever-growing gaming industry. NextGen was founded in 1999, while in 2011 they became a part of NYX Gaming Group. Their portfolio counts over 600 games supplied to casino operators worldwide.
How to Play It
Thanks to the brilliant animation you will get a feeling of watching a cartoon or playing a video game. The two main characters, the scientist and his monster are standing on the sides of a 5×3 reel grid while you spin the reels.
Only one of them is there for a special reason and that is Frankenstein’s look-alike, Igor. This amiable creature will be there to pull the lever in order to grant additional Wilds and Scatters.
The mad scientist is there just to entertain you with his stunts. These two characters appear on the reels as well, which is where the mad professor gets the main role. He acts as a Wild, able to replace any symbol except the Scatter. Also, he pays quite generously. The maximum you can get from this old guy is 1,000 coins for five of a kind.
Igor will pay 500 coins for five of a kind, followed by the carnivorous plant which pays 250 and the rest of the monsters pay 150 for five of a kind. We liked the fact that the developers avoided the use of playing cards as low-paying symbols. Here bottles of various chemicals are there to fill the reels.
The most wanted symbol in the game will be the logo of the game, that is, Manic Millions logo, because it pays 1,250 coins for five of a kind and triggers the Electrifying Free Spins round.
Typical for NextGen there is the Gamble feature available during the base game. Upon any win, you can choose the gamble feature and try to double or quadruple your money. In order to do that you have to pick the right colour or suit of the card. Otherwise you lose.
The highlight of this scientific affair is definitely 10 Electrifying Free Spins round which occurs when three or more Scatter symbols are found on the reels.
Though this may not happen as often as you would like it is worth the wait because they come with a 3x multiplier of your wins. What is more it is possible to re-trigger the 10 Free Spins during the initial free play round.
Fortunately, you will have help with that. Igor is responsible for two special features: Igor Wild Bonus and Igor. As we said, when he pulls the lever the reels get charged with electricity which produces random wilds and scatters on your reels.
Igor is there all the time, in the main game and in the base game as well. During the base game Igor adds one Wild to one or more reels within his Igor Wild Bonus feature. In the free games he becomes even more generous, as he adds up to 3 Wilds to one or more reels.
Igor Scatter bonus works the same in both game modes. Igor adds Scatters to all reels except the last one, increasing your chances of triggering and re-triggering Electrifying Free Spins.
Though it might take some time until you trigger the Free Spins, Igor is pretty generous and once we got to the free play, with his help we managed to win another 10 Free Spins and a win of 44 times our stake.
Manic Millions comes with a very high maximum bet of $625, which makes it ideal for risk-takers and high rollers.
On the other hand it comes pretty cheap too, as only $0.25 will be enough to hit the reels.
The maximum you could get from a five-of-a-kind combination is 1,250 coins if you land five Scatters across the paylines. Any win that occurs during the Free Spins will be tripled, so you definitely stand to win serious amounts of money.
Manic Millions is a bright and vibrant slot with amusing story and characters that win you over at the very sight of them. The overall audiovisual experience is superb, but that is no surprise with NextGen behind it.
Still, the best thing about this medium to high variance slot is that it offers plenty of opportunities to win, either through Igor’s addition of Wilds and Scatters or 3x multipliers during the Free Spins. Our advice is that you should definitely try Manic Millions.
