Strap Yourself in or Get a Mad Doctor to Do It for You, as We Take on the Mental Slot From NoLimit City!
We are always excited when a new NoLimit City slot is released. This aptly named title Mental, promises to be just that, in terms of the theme/location, music, disturbing graphic animations and overall win potential!
Rizk Casino will be adding the Mental slot on release day, the 31st of August 2021, along with loads more of our recommended casinos with a full catalogue of NoLimit City slots.
Mental Slot Theme
The backstory for this slot is a particularly dark theme. Located in an abandoned mental institute, filled with deadly spiders and scorpions and some very dark "testing" going on, with numbered patients receiving some very sinister treatments, including lobotomies.
Reel symbols include things like a pair of lungs, brains, hearts, dead patients, body parts (you get a general idea!).. so if you are particularly squeamish, this slot may not sound very appealing, our "patient slot advice" is that you should seek out some cartoon styled fluffy bunny slots immediately!
With a complete design focus on being Mental, this slot has a dark, twisted theme and a haunting, eerie soundtrack. Definitely don't neglect the soundtrack as it adds to the immersion here!
It comes with so many special features and modifiers that, with a maximum win of 66,666x stake (Simulations: 1 in 18 Million spins), fits the game title perfectly!
It's no joke that trying to communicate how this slot works effectively will probably leave us feeling a bit mental afterwards! This is quite possibly the most feature-packed release from No Limit we have ever reviewed and took us some time to grasp fully.
There are many mini-features that all interact with each other, multiple free spins bonus rounds that can be triggered and upgraded, and some insane bonus buy options in countries where this is allowed!
Base Gameplay - Mini-Feature Overload!
The base game in Mental takes place on 5 reels with alternating reel sizes (3, 2, 3, 2, 3) in what can only be described as the backdrop to a torture chamber. With no modifiers in play, this gives you a starting 108 ways to win payline structure.
During every spin, you can almost guarantee this will be increased to a much higher number of ways and multiplier values which in essence act like additional ways too. Given its super high variance, there is a hit frequency of 34.19% but without big paying symbols, don't expect base gameplay to be too forgiving here. If you aren't hitting frequent bonus rounds, the base game will take a chunk out of you over time.
If that wasn't enough to try and work out, there are also 3 unique free spins rounds on offer, Autopsy Free spins, Lobotomy Free spins, and the equivalent of a 5 scatter trigger bonus round Mental Free spins round, along with the ability to upgrade your free spins during the bonus round!
Features that have been used on previous NoLimit City slots are all present here, so you can expect xWays, xSplit and xNudge along with additional features such as Fire Frames, Dead Patient, Mental Transform and Enhancer Cells all working together to increase the ways, multipliers and giving this slot the insane winning potential when things line up nicely.
Honestly, the sheer number of interactions in the base game and free spins can feel a little overwhelming, but we will break down all of these mini-features later so you can understand what each small feature is doing at a glance!
It may not help you fully understand this slot without playing it first. Testing for yourself in demo mode is definitely recommended here, but we will try!
