Psycho is certainly a major title for NextGen Gaming. It is based on the cult movie of the same name. The slot is also fully licensed, which makes it all the more perfect. Psycho is ideal if you love the movie, and aren’t opposed to a bit of slashing and cutting in your video slot themes.
The Psycho slot is certainly not going to be everybody’s cup of tea – but then again, it isn’t supposed to be. Psycho features 5 reels and 25 paylines, and players are able to bet anything from 0.01 up to 2.00 per line. This will result in them having wagered between 0.25 and 50.00 per spin, since you are not at liberty to adjust the paylines in this slot. You can win as much as 2,500 coins with a bit of luck, though.
This non-progressive video slot features a wild icon which is also its second best paying symbol (after the scatter). The icon can replace all other symbols in the game, barring those scatters. Wilds can also multiply your winnings by 2x, 3x, 4, 5x, 10x, or 20x, when they appear in winning combinations. A randomly triggered wild feature may also see Norman Bates stab wilds onto the screen, in an event reminiscent of the infamous shower scene from the original Alfred Hitchcock movie.
Scatter icons take the shape of the infamous Bates Model. When 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters appear anywhere on the reels, a scattered cash prize is paid out, which works as a multiplier against the total stake wagered. Moreover, players will also pocketed free spins for 3 or more such symbols appearing anywhere on the screen.
Once players have activated the free bonus, they will be issued either 10, 15 or 20 free games, depending on whether they landed 3, 4 or 5 such scatter icons. During those free spins, additional wilds can find their way onto the screen and add 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 10x, 20x, or even 40x multipliers to your winnings.
