The true spirit of Norman Bates has entered into the casino world through the 5 reel 25 payline slot game. Experience the eerie game setting with the Bates Motel and its vacancy sign flickering in the rain and the thick fog hiding the wooden house in the background. Loosely themed around the famous murder scene of the classic 1960s movie, Psycho, by Alfred Hitchcock; NextGen has sworn to give you the same exact chills and suspense in this slot game.
The shower curtain serves as the background for the reel symbols to roll down. Norman Bates, Marion Crane, keyholes, cash envelopes and keys with the No.1 symbol pay highly, when they appear on the reels. The card symbol from 10 through ace, are the low paying symbols.
How to play
The way Psycho sets you up for playing this game is neither murderous nor creepy. The betting range from 0.01 to 2.0 makes this the ideal slot players range. The RTP of around 95% is more than enough for you to risk your life playing this slot game.
Once the bet has been placed, the winning spin will be paid out as per the paytable. The only disadvantage is that the paylines are fixed. But, still you can make the most of the situation, by triggering the free spins. It’s the wild symbol and the multipliers that will add more value and cash to your bankroll; in both the base game and the free spins. The best part is that, the game can be played on both your mobile and desktops.
Wild Substitution: Find the bold and bright red Wild symbol, to replace all the symbols except for the scatter. Looking ominous on the reels, it is the most vital symbol of the game. Not surprisingly, there is a multiplier that goes up to 20x for every win which occurs with the wild in the base game.
You will wish for more of the wild symbols to appear during the free spins, as the multiplier value shoots up to 40 times the line bet. Free spin bonus game: The only bonus game that will blow your mind with its incredible gameplay, is the free spins round. Land 3 or more of the scattered House symbol on the reels and you can play up to 20 free spins.
Any wild substitution during the free spins will get a wild multiplier of up to 40 times the line bet. You will definitely wish for more of the wild symbol to show up on the reels. The free spins can be re-triggered.
Gamble Feature: The brave heart and courageous player can try their luck playing the gamble feature. Enabled after every successful win, you can double or quadruple your wins by predicting the outcome of the next card colour or the card suit.
Obviously the Psycho rules are simple and easy to remember with no hidden loopholes. The wins are all paid out from left to right and as per the paytable. The game is null and void in case of malfunction.
The wild, scatter and bonus wins are calculated for every spin and added to the final value.
Bets are placed on all the 25 fixed paylines. You can only increase or decrease the bet value. The range is from 0.01 to 2.0 per spin. If multiple wins are obtained for a single spin, the highest value is paid out to the player.
