NextGen is one of our favourite developers, and they are renowned for developing slot games of an immense quality. Sometimes the company even makes slot games based on famous films. What we have here is NextGen's take on Alfred Hitchcock's classic horror film Psycho, and it turns out we're in for quite the adventure! The game looks fantastic, and you will be off to the infamous Bates Motel, and it looks like a really scary slot. Hopefully, the jackpots are the complete opposite and will be plentiful and prosperous! The game seems to do a fantastic job of creating a scary atmosphere, and we have all the details below.
Our Verdict: The game's theme contributes a lot to the overall success of the game due to how immersive it is. Fans of the film will love it as it reminds you so much of the psychological horror. Alfred Hitchcock himself would enjoy playing this game as it is a tonne of fun. The design apart, the game offers some good content, and there are some pretty interesting bonus features to keep you spinning for a few hours at least. This game will not be for the faint of heart but if you are a fan of horror films then certainly check this out and all the info is below.
Wild Symbol: There is a wild symbol in this game to keep things ticking over nicely and it helps players pick up additional rewards and prizes by completing line wins by substituting for other symbols. This lets players pick up many more additional wins which is great. On Psycho, the wild symbol is represented by the red "WILD" word that appears on the reel. It substitutes for everything except for the scatter which is represented by the motel and has the word "SCATTER" written on it. The bonus features also activated with these, and there is a number of them to enjoy with all the details below.
Free Spins: Slot players love a free spins bonus round as it increases the length of the game at no additional cost. There is a free spins bonus round on this installment and Psycho does have this bonus feature which is great. The scatter symbols are the key to this, and you need to land 3, 4 or 5 of them to land anywhere on the reel which will result in ten, fifteen or even twenty free spins respectively. Additionally, during this round, you will also benefit from a multiplier of up to 40X for any win during this round. The spins take place during the famous shower scene!
Gamble Feature: This is a high-risk function for a high reward so you can double or quadruple your bet by triggering this feature. Essentially, after any win, you can risk your win amount by guessing on the colour and (or) suit of the playing card displayed to you. This can result in doubling your bet or even quadrupling if you can guess both the suit and colour. We do not recommend using it too often as it can get frustrating when you continue to lose.
