Psycho is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot game developed by software provider, NextGen Gaming. The game is based on Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 horror film by the same name and will have you shivering in your boots as the symbols spin round the reels. The game offers a free spins bonus round with up to a 40x multiplier value and a gamble feature option.
This is some creepy sh#!
Those who are familiar with the film will recognise the graphics in the game. The reels are set on the iconic shower curtain which is hung in the courtyard of the Bates Motel where creepy things are taking place. The spooky old house where ‘mother’ lives can be seen up on the hill in the background. The symbols include Norman Bates and Marion Crane, the main protagonists of the film, a motel door key, a peephole and an envelope of cash, as well as high playing card values with rips or birds of prey on the them. Bates’ mother’s house is the scatter symbol. It pays out for two or more landing anywhere on the reels and is the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. The big red Wild is the wild symbol. It substitutes for all other symbols, except the house scatter symbol, to help create a winning combination. When it substitutes for a win, the win will be multiplied by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x or 20x!
Landing 3, 4 or 5 house scatter symbols anywhere on the reels activates the free spins bonus round and awards 10, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively. The free spins take place during the well-known shower scene and while the reels are spinning, the hand may appear with a long knife and start hacking away at the reels, creating additional wilds. During the free spins round, the values of the wild multiplier when it is used to create a winning combination, are increased to 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 10x, 20x or 40x! The free spins can be re-triggered from within the feature.
There is a gamble feature available after every winning payout during the game. Players can choose to play to double or quadruple their winnings by guessing the colour or suit of a concealed playing card. A wrong guess will make you lose your winnings so this feature is only for the brave.
Psycho is a video slot game that is only for those who have nerves of steel. While it may have you shaking in your seat, there is plenty of excitement when a wild symbol lands or the free spins round comes along.
