Mad Scientist Game Overview
Mad Scientist is a Bitcoin slot from BetSoft, and it is the precursor to the hugely popular Madder Scientist, which we gave a great review. The original doesn’t have quite as many features, but it’s still incredibly entertaining and should appeal to a broad range of players, plus you’ll be amazed at how often wins spin into view! The graphics are also pretty good, as you’d expect from one of BetSoft’s 3D Bitcoin slots.
The only problem with this slot is this; now that Madder Scientist is here, why would anyone choose to play the original? The newer version builds on the better features and also introduces some new ones, so should you play at the original?
Mad Scientist is a slot with five reels and twenty paylines, and you’ll be able to choose how many paylines to play, as well as how much to bet per payline. There are Max Bet and Autoplay buttons if you want to use them and, unlike many BetSoft slots, there is no Gamble feature at this slot.
The blackboard is the wild symbol at this slot, while the scatter symbol is represented by the switch. Getting a Tesla coil symbol on both ends of an active payline leads to the Wild’o’Cution feature, and causes all symbols on the payline to turn wild.
Getting three or more hazard symbols on an active payline starts a simple “Pick Me” bonus round, while getting three or more test tubes symbols anywhere on the reels starts the main bonus. During this you’ll be taken to a second screen, where you’ll need to help the scientist test his new serum. Select items for him to conduct his test on, and see if they turn gold, silver or bronze. If they do, you’ll win a prize!
When this slot was released, it was one of the best slots around, but it has now been surpassed by its sequel, Madder Scientist. You’ll still enjoy playing it, but will probably prefer having some spins at Madder Scientist instead.
