This is a new release from Betsoft, a slot machine that combines the Ancient Greek legends with some new mechanics. In addition to its excellent graphics, the game also has a mechanic that lets the player climb a tower towards the stars and win big. Despite the smaller game area, this release offers a lot for modern players, so it’s no classic.
This medium volatility slot has plenty of potential thanks to its Climbing The Tower multipliers, its Crimson Flag Wilds, and its Fortuna’s Free Spins.
The game consists of three reels by three rows and five lines. To get paid, you must have three matching symbols on an entire line.
When you can’t win the round, Climbing the Tower will activate, and the multiplier will be boosted by one. Round after round, it will keep going up by 1x until you finally win. When you win that round, your win will be multiplied by how much you’ve collected so far; then, the multiplier will reset to 1.
Crimson Flag will be the wild symbol, which can only replace a regular symbol. Wilds can only appear on the second reel.
The scatter symbol is depicted as the Sun’s image, and it can appear once on each reel. Fortuna’s Free Spins are triggered when all three appear simultaneously. Three more Sun scatters are required to retrigger the feature. There is still an increasing multiplier mechanic here so that you can get better prizes.
In addition, you can get access to the free spins feature by paying 50x the stake.
Tower of Fortuna has excellent graphics, but there is so much more to it than that. There are enough unique features in this 3-reel slot to call it a modern title. The RTP is above average, a medium volatility bet, and pays out above average.
With 180 win lines, Mental is a highly volatile slot from NoLimit City with a 3-2-3-2-3 layout, and it plays out on a 3-2-3-2-3 layout. There are Fire Frames symbol splits, Dead Patient symbol multipliers up to x9,999, Enhancer Cells with six modifiers, Mental Transform and three bonus rounds. You can win up to 66,666x your bet.
Fire Frames are found in the base game, and they split symbols in half so that flames surround the reels 1 to 13.
This feature is triggered when 2 Dead Patient symbols land on the reels. One of them becomes a premium patient symbol with a multiplier of 5, 10, 15, 30, 50, 100, 300, 500, 1,000 or 9,999. Symbols count as win multipliers, so this is not a standard multiplier. There are Enhancer Cells at the bottom of reels 2 and 4, and these activate by 4 or 6 Fire Frames, respectively. Each Enhancer Cell awards one of six modifiers once triggered.
The Mental Transform feature triggers when you land spider symbols on reels 2 or 4. These symbols transform into an xSplit, xWays, Wild, Dead Patient or Patient premium symbol.
If you land three Scorpion scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, and each scatter lands in a Fire Frame, you will win 8 Autopsy Free Spins.
It is really hard to comprehend everything that goes on when this slot game is firing on all cylinders (or even 50%, for that matter). In terms of complexity, convoluted and disturbing themes, Mental is undoubtedly the most challenging such release. There is an excellent visual presentation, but it is horrific at the same time. Furthermore, there is an eerie soundtrack that will make your skin crawl.
However, if you walk away after cashing in some big wins, then the creepy stuff will soon be forgotten about.
