Take control of some experimental 5 reels as you choose which reels to spin and get electrified by one Madder Scientist slot genius.
As with all Betsoft slot games, this one is chock full of features. So much so, in fact, that we are going to get straight to it, just vaguely mention that this looks particularly beautiful on iPads and tablets and you’ll need good WiFi.
The main feature, you’ll notice, is the reel re-spin feature. This essentially allows you to re-spin any of the 5 reels after any spin. Why is this mad? Because it’s crazy dangerous.
Remember how often you’ve played and seen four symbols line up beautifully and you think to yourself “Damn! I just need one more symbol!”. Now imagine being able to re-spin that reel. As many times as you want. Until that symbol hits.
But this feature in Madder Scientist slot game is not free, the higher the chances of you getting a big win or a bonus symbol, the more it will cost you to spin that one reel. We wasted a whole load of money on this feature, but we simply could not help ourselves. It’s just too tempting.
Our advice, from playing and learning, is allow yourself only one spin for a winning payline. Learn what the high paying symbols are to gamble on. Keep an eye out for five of a kind reel-respin wins. And don’t be fooled by the little arrow going ‘hey look! spin this one! this one looks good!’ They tend to be the expensive ones in the game, and unless it’s for a big win, we generally ignore it. It rarely seemed to bring back our money.
And yet… wow was it good fun trying.
Of which there are two, and of which you can walk away with about 20 to 30 times your bet. Not a huge amount, but this mobile slot is very much low variance. You won’t walk away with a huge amount generally.
However, we found ourselves playing on Madder Scientist mobile slot for far longer than we expected. With everything happening on this five reel slot, having to think about the re-spins and the excellent expanded wild feature… we didn’t even notice that the free spin games only show up once in a blue moon.
But, sometimes we were up and sometimes we were down, but mostly our budget lasted and lasted and lasted as we kept on playing. If we’d been smart and cashed out when we were 20% up on our starting bankroll we could have even made a little bit of a profit.
The thinking man’s bonus video slot Madder Scientist requires more than just your standard click and spin. Not for when you are feeling lazy, but if you want to challenge yourselves and your instincts, this will certainly keep you entertained.

Beaker Click Me: If you get 3 beaker symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 you trigger a click me bonus feature. Simply keep clicking until you get collect. Usually you get cash prizes, but there are free spins hiding in these mad concoctions.
Wild Switches: If you can get three switch symbols anywhere on the reels it will randomly make one of those reels into an expanded wild and stick there for a few spins. The amount of time it remains sticky is random, but we find you start with about 5 or 6 and then we get a few more switches on the reels, giving you an additional +1 sticky spin. In total we generally end up with about 8 spins with the sticky expanded wilds on the reels.
Reel Re-spin: The main feature and danger in the game, after any spin you can choose to re-spin any one of the five reels for an additional chance to win... or lose. Each spin costs you, some less some more than doing a whole new spin, depending on your chances of getting something good. See the main review about what we thought about this feature.
Test the Serum: No more or less profitable than the beaker pick me feature, except this is a simple 'pick for cash' type game. The original Madder Scientist online slot had great big beautiful video showing you the effect of your choice of potion, but in the mobile version it's far less dramatic and impressive.
We can't give Madder Scientist mobile slot 5 stars as without a good phone connection this Betsoft 3D slot was sloooow and crashed a couple of times. So as an Android phone slot or iPhone slot, it's a little temperamental with no WiFi.
Still, we wanted to. It ticked all the boxes of a low variance slot: entertaining, plenty of small wins, but giving you that little thrill of choice to almost make you think that you're playing a game of skill. Brings you a little danger without actually risking very much.
