Welcome to what may be one of the scariest online slots we’ve ever encountered – it’s called Mental, it’s developed by Nolimit City and it appears to take place in some grimy institution where the spectre of human experimentation looms over the unfortunate inmates. If you’re brave enough to try it out there are Fire Frames, Enhancer Cells, three different free spin rounds and the Mental Transform feature.
Mental is a five reel slot with 108 paylines and it plays out on the 3-2-3-2-3 setup you can see above; The scary sounds and the flickering light bulbs contribute to the unsettling atmosphere which is reminiscent of survival horror video games such as Silent Hill.
The five high value symbols are five inmates labelled Patients 1 – 5, some attached to various medical devices; the five lower values are bits of the human body – eyes, brains, hearts, kidneys and a skeletal hand. The special symbols include the wild, the dead patient, the spider, and the scorpion.
Mental Bonus Features
Fire Frames & Enhancer Cells
On each spin between one and thirteen positions will be surrounded by fire and each one will split into two matching symbols – the number of total paylines will increase and be shown above reel two.
If four or six positions are surrounded by fire than the cells below reels two and four respectively will reveal one of the following enhancers:
- Patient – one of the five high value inmates.
- Dead Patient – the dead patient.
- xWays – three matching symbols are added to a reel which expands in response.
- xSplit – selects one symbol on each reel and splits it in two; the xSplit turns into a wild.
- Wild – adds the wild symbol.
- xNudge Wild – nudges a stacked wild top the reels and increases the win multiplier by 1x with each nudge.
Landing a spider on reels two or four will kick this off and it will then transform into an xWays, xSplit, Dead Patient, Wild or inmate.
When two Dead Patient symbols (gravestones) land it they will be replaced by an inmate with a multiplier attached of between 5x and 9999x.
Autopsy Free Spins
This is triggered by landing three scorpion scatters anywhere in view for which you’ll receive eight spins plus one for each scorpion inside a Fire Frame; on each spin up to five positions will get Fire Frames and they’ll lock in place until the round ends.
Lobotomy Free Spins
There are two ways to trigger this – with three scorpions and one spider in the base game or by landing a spider in the Autopsy free spins. These are similar spins except that the spider will lock in place and trigger the Mental Transform on each spin. There’s also a rather complicated Dead Multiplier feature based on the Dead Symbol multipliers in which those values are collected and transferred back to the respective patients until the count runs down.
Mental Free Spins
There are three ways to activate this feature – with three scorpions and two spiders in the base game for ten spins, landing two spiders in the Autopsy spins or one spider in Lobotomy free spins. Both spiders are now sticky and locked in place during this feature.
|Mental is frankly an astonishing slot machine with an atmosphere as dark as anything we’ve seen before – there are multiple features with some based around Nolimit City’s popular xWild and xNudge gameplay mechanics. Turn the lights off and crank up the sound when you play this game for the full effect.|
