Mad Scientist has a great base game and some surprising bonus features. Firstly, there’s a separate bonus round which is triggered by three flasks on any of the active lines. A mad scientist will begin his experiment. You will need to choose one of the four objects. Once the object is turned into either bronze, silver or pure gold, the researcher will award you a prize and you will return to the base game. Catching a special symbol on reels 1 or 5 will activate the Wild’o’cution feature. The Tesla reels will electrify themselves and the icons on the reels between them, thus turning them into Wild symbols. If you can catch 3 Wild symbols on a winning line, another bonus round will be triggered. In this one, you just have to click to select one of the symbols. You are rewarded with 125 to 175 credits, and this number is also multiplied by the number of lines with radiation icons and your line bet. Mad Scientist also has Scatter symbols, which don’t have to fall on one of the lines to be paid, as well as Wild’s, which replace all the other symbols in the game.
