With linked wilds and the original cast from the 1931 classic Universal movie, your head would have to be in a jar not to give this spine-chilling Frankenstein mobile slot a little jolt.
Forgive the badly phrased pun, but we simply couldn’t resist ourselves. There is something about this Frankenstein slot machine that makes you want to go all cheesy, and laugh maniacally to the heavens every time you get a win.
And with a 96.7% return to player rate, this lovely little mobile slot machine has every chance to get you a few of those.
The features, unlike many NetEnt slots, are not heavy. You won’t be bamboozled by a host of actions and jumping graphics. Much like its original gothic theme, this little gem is more subdued in tone and play, allowing you room to relax as each spin brings you the possibility of a very special wild and free spins round.
The electrifying wild symbol spreads; turning adjacent symbols into other wilds. This is where you’ll get most of the action in this android and iOS mobile slot.
All in all, a simple feature, but one that before this particular NetEnt video slot came out, no one had tried before.
It’s also the reason for the particularly high payout rate and the fact that this Frankenstein slot is of slightly higher volatility than many of the rest of the Net Entertainment Touch games.
But the free spins round, as infrequent as it is and as hard as it might be to hit, is where all the real rush of the slot happens all at once.
First you get the rolling thunder sounds as the windmill scatter symbols come across the screen, reminding you of the raging storm that will bring life to the slumbering creature.
Then as you hit the bonus free spin… bam! The angry mob chases you to the old windmill where 10 free spins and a random multiplier increases the odds of big wins, as well as a raging inferno that burns across your screen as the multiplier increases.
Much like the monster of the tale, there is a tense build up followed by a thunderous climax. A setting they like for their monster games, as you can see in The Invisible Man slot.
It’s quite difficult to be satisfied with the base game after that, but that’s the point of this slot machine. Once you hit the free spins in this Frankenstein video slot you’ll be chasing them down with your pitchfork at hand, for a chance of hitting them again and catching that 5x multiplier.

Linked Wilds (main): The Lighting Ball (machinery? disc? metal... thing?) is the wild in the main game, appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substituting all symbols except scatter. Far more fun, they ignite two or more nearby symbols each time, turning them into extra wilds for extra wins.
Linked Wild (free spins): The Fire symbol is the wild during the free spins. It works exactly as per the main game wild, except it appears on one of the reels on each and every free spin.
Free Spins: Grab your pitchfork and flaming torch! It's time to head to the windmill and burn down the monster with ten free spins! Three Scatter Windmill symbols will have you rushing to an exciting feature where a random multiplier can give you up to 5x your win.
When you get each multiplier, your screen will turn into a raging inferno as the building burns around you. Additionally, if you get 2 or 3 windmill symbols during the free spins round, you'll get an extra 5 and 10 free spins.
Frankenstein Touch is a little slow to get started. Whilst the online slot had the electrifying wilds roaming across the screens, giving you extra exciting wilds, the mobile phone and tablet version does the same without the exciting video graphics.
The result is the same, but might leave those expecting to get more exciting wins a little cold and empty as they watch wilds multiply without the big fanfare.
That said, this mobile phone slot remains true to it's old style movie source, giving a slow tense build up of a game, with all the gloomy sounds associating with it, and climaxing with a raging inferno free spins game that is more than worth waiting for.
Sure it doesn't hit often, but with the guarantee linked wilds and random multipliers, your chances of winning big during this feature are very good indeed.
We thoroughly enjoyed this NetEnt online slot, all the more so on mobile, losing only a dash of excitement in the transfer to the smaller smartphone and tablet screens.
