Frankenstein Slots

FrankensteinFrankenstein is a name that doesn’t need much of an introduction, as most people are familiar with the novel or the many movies that were made later on and which included him in one form or another. With a story about a monster that Dr. Frankenstein created through his experiments, Frankenstein was designed by Net Entertainment and they’ve made sure that it’s one of their better works as they did so. It’s a scary game, with the right high quality sound themes, with a Gothic look to it that will make you shiver when combined with the rest of the graphics, overall a great game to play as a fan of the story or the horror genre in general.

Frankenstein is a Net Entertainment slot machine, capable of giving out up to $37,500 in prizes, as you get winning combinations on its 20 paylines/5 reels. As features, it uses linked wilds (either Lightning or Fire based), free spins, scatters and multipliers.

Features of Frankenstein

The game might have the usual features on the surface, but at a close look you will discover that you have linked wilds, both fire and lightning inspired, plus scatter symbols, free spins and multipliers.

The Linked Wilds are the ones that will get your attention the most when they do appear, as they tend to spread across the slot’s reels. They will transform nearby icons into wilds, at lest two extra ones being obtained this way. The Lightning Wild is going to be present in the main game, on the reels 2 to 4 (middle three reels). They can’t substitute for the scatter, but they work in every other situation.

Fire Wilds are only available during the free spins, taking the place of the lightning wilds. A fire wild is guaranteed for each of the free spins and it will be present on reels 2, 3 or 4. They don’t substitute for scatter or multiplier symbols, both available during the free spins, but work with all others.


Burning Will Free Spins

Access to this special round with free spins is obtained with the assistance of the Wind Mill scatter symbol, in the main game. Getting 3+ Wind Mills scattered on the reels will get you into this bonus feature, with 10 free spins awarded.

For the duration of the free games, you get the Fire Wilds (described above) and the Multiplier symbol. The Multiplier symbol is going to appear on the 5th reel, where it will up the multiplier of the free spins by 1x each time it shows up. The maximum multiplier you can reach in the free spins is 5x, after which this symbol will no longer appear on the 5th reel.

You can retrigger the feature with two scattered Wind Mills, which get you 5 free spins. Three Wind Mills will give you 10 free spins, on top of the original 10 that you started with.


Betting options and jackpots

The bets in Frankenstein range from $0.01 to $100. The smallest number is the value of the lowest denomination possible for a coin and it activates only one payline. The larger number is composed of 200 coins of maximum denomination ($0.50), with 10 coins used per payline.

The best reward that it has to offer is the equivalent of 7,500 times the line bet. It translates into up to 75,000 coins, or $37,500. It’s a decent amount to win, especially for Net Entertainment.

Design and symbols

The design of Frankenstein is somewhat special, with a gritty and dark view of the world being used in it, which works only because this is supposed to be a scary story. The action takes place in a dungeon, the place where Dr. Frankenstein creates his work, assisted by Fritz, his assistant. There is electricity all around, metal chains and brick walls, with a dark blue overlay applied over them. The game is not the typical cheerful and attractive affair that Net Entertainment has gotten us used to, but the design works for it.


Symbols: Lightning Rod (wild), Windmill (scatter), Monster (1,500x), Dr. Frankenstein (1,200x), Fritz (700x), Brain (500x), Ace (150x), King (125x), Queen (100x), Jack (75x), 10 (50x) and 9 (25x).


Is It Worth Playing?

If your idea of a good movie or game is one where you get scared, you probably will not achieve that with slot machines, but Frankenstein will sure put you in the right mood. Its dark atmosphere and its linked wilds are the biggest advantages it brings to the table.

You will find Frankenstein at any online casino which chooses to use software from Net Entertainment, playable either for free or for real money.
