Nikola Tesla, the mastermind behind modern electricity is one of the most celebrated inventors of all time. And now, almost a century after his death, Yggdrasil invite players into Tesla’s laboratory through the form of a video slot game.
The dark and sinister slot game has 5-reels, and 25-pay lines, with an array of features that include exploding wilds, cloned reels and a free spins game in which you can level-up for increased potential.
With A, K, Q and J card suits on the reels, you’ll also come across an assortment of devices used by Tesla (capacitors, goggles, and stopwatches). Out of the standard symbols, the stopwatch is the most lucrative, giving you 40 times your stake for a five of a kind combination. There's also a wild symbol which is represented by an image of Tesla wearing his futuristic night-vision goggles - it's of the same value as the top standard symbol.
Basically, if you like laboratories, Yggdrasil’s Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine is definitely for you.
Nikola Tesla's Incredible Machine comes with three base game extras that together form part of the Energy Burst feature. It comes into play when one of the standard symbols appear fully stacked on the middle reel. Whilst lower-value symbols will award 3 bonus spins, a stack of premiums will give you 5 bonus spins. Once activated, you will then be randomly awarded one of the following:
Wild Substitution - one of the standard symbols will act as a wild during the bonus spins.
Reel Clone - the game will randomly pick three reels that will link to display matching symbol arrangement for all bonus spins.
Exploding Wild - between two and three symbols are chosen randomly and transformed to locked wilds that remain in place throughout the feature.
Moreover, the Free Spins feature is played when three or more scatter symbols appear anywhere in view - 3, 4 or 5 scatters will reward you 8, 10 or 12 free spins respectively. Once in, you'll benefit from a reel set that pays both ways along with a locked wild that's been added to the central position of the middle reel. Starting at level 1, if a Level-Up symbol appears on any of the reels, you move up one level (up to a maximum of 5). When you level up, another locked wild is randomly added on reels 2 - 4 directly adjacent to the initial locked wild.
The slot has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.2.
