5 Reel, 20 Paylines, Lotto Madness mobile slot looks like it’s online twin, but is, in fact, quite a different creature.
Playtech, it seems, cannot help but tinker with it’s mobile slots, providing players what they think is the same slot but in portable format, but when you look closer, becomes very different indeed. Add to that the fact this mobile slot is only available on iOS devices and it seemed like the odds for this lotto to get good points in our book just keep lowering.
The most obvious difference, for those who’ve played on the online slot, is that they’ve removed the Dollar Ball feature. Remember? You turned it on by picking five numbers, 1 to 49, and waited for those numbers to arrive on the reels? Only they never ever did and it was a huge waste of money?
As you can see, we won’t be crying about the fact this feature no longer exists. In fact, let’s applaud the removal of a feature, which with a return to player rate of 72.41% was nothing short of a scam. What we will be crying about is that they have also lowered the return to player rate from 97.06% on the online slot to 96.16% on this mobile one.
So we get a lower RTP for our trouble, but why? Well, we suspect that as they lowered the betting range, this low to mid volatility slot, is now more low than mid. What does this mean? Well the obvious one is that the max bet you can now make on this Playtech slot is a relatively low £/$/€2, rather than £/$/€200. This means that Lotto Madness mobile slot plays very similarly to the online slot, because there is less risk to the casino that you’ll hit it very big.
Even still, don’t think you can’t get a decent payout, with a 20,000 possible jackpot if you get the Wild card, five in a row, with a 10x multiplier in the free spins. Difficult, I’ll grant you, but it would hardly be a jackpot if anyone could get it, would it?
Talking of free spins, this feature, when it comes, hits nicely, giving you the biggest increase to your bankroll and leaving you pleasantly happy to have bought into that bingo card. Thing is, this little in game bonus feature is elusive as you have to wait for the bonus symbol to show up on reels 1 and 5, so if you don’t have the patience for the long haul, this Lotto Madness slot game is not for you. The only feature available, this is really for people who like the simplicity of Lotto or Bingo. Click, spin. Click, spin. Click, spin, win! Click, spin. Click, spin…

Wild: The Lotto Card is the Wild symbol, replacing every symbol except scatter or bonus. This symbol will give you the biggest wins with 10,000 times your bet.
Scatter: If the wild hasn't shown up in a while, chances are you would have seen the scatter a few times. The scatter pays out either way on any active payline and three or more need to show on the screen. Get five and it gives you 50x your bet.
Wheel of Fortune: This wheel of fortune is as difficult to find as the original 1980s games. But when you do, it will give you plenty to smile about, often giving you at minimum 50x your bet and many a times, 100x your bet. You'll have to wait for the bonus symbol to show up on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously, which is no easy feat, but when you do, you'll be presented with a wheel of fortune which will spin to give you the amount of free spins and multipliers won. The ideal, of course, is to get the maximum of 20 free spins with 10x multiplier.
Personally, we prefer the far prettier Halloween Fortune or A Night Out - we are not a huge fan of the lazy 'lotto' theme. What's with the cheesy blonde guy and warped bottles of champagne? The piles of cash and 6 to 9 bingo balls are hardly beautifully presented either.
But that's our opinion and we know plenty who love this slot. Equally, for beginners who want the simpler spins, but do not want their budget to disappear in a couple of spins, Lotto Madness mobile slot will pay out little and often, elongating your game play - a huge plus if you are just starting out in video slots, but still hope for that big win in the sky.Play Now at BetFred »
