Time to get a little bit inventive in this Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine slot where there’s a lot of wonderful bonus features to discover.
Nikola Tesla is one of those names that you probably know, if nothing else because he has a car named after him. But mostly, if you’re a real science aficionado, he’s also partly the reason why you are reading this, the modern world, and have light.
One of the greatest unknown inventors in the world, without him we wouldn’t have electricity.
Eccentric, brilliant, and instantly recognizable, this is a wonderfully ‘Mad Inventor slot’ that gives you just the right kind of steampunk feel that is a little bit original.
What makes this Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine slot so interesting is that you have 4 types of free spins.
If the middle 3rd reel is full of low paying symbols you get 3 bonus spins, if you get a reel of high paying symbols you get 5 bonus spins.
Randomly you trigger one of 3 features: either random wilds or turn one set of symbols into a wild or give you cloned reels like in the original Twin Spin slot review.
And that’s not even mentioning the free spins bonus round triggered by scatters which give you multiple levels and sticky wilds.
You can’t deny that, visually, every feature pops out of the screen with clever animation, electric wins, and mechanisms that will make you feel like every win and every feature is exciting.
And then you look at the numbers and you realise that nothing much is happening to your budget, not going up or down, and the wins rarely break over 20x your bet.
That’s not to say you don’t have great wins – you can win up to 1,000 times your bet. This might be a Rabcat slot game but it’s powered by Yggdrasil Gaming, so it plays beautifully and the paytable is decent.
But you really need to get in the free spins and with lots of sticky wilds to get anything close to that, and meanwhile, it can feel a little frustrating.
That said, it’s fun enough and it sits nicely next to the like of the Robin of Sherwood slot and the Moby Dick game.

Wild: The Wild symbol can substitute any other symbol in order to create a win over this 25 payline slot machine. Nikola Tesla is the wild.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will trigger 8, 10 or 12 free spins. During the bonus, this Nikola Tesla's Incredible Machine game pays from left to right and from right to left.
For the 1st free spin, a fixed wild is placed on the central position of the reel. The level-up scatter can appear on slot reels 1 or 5. If it appears, it will increase the level and with it the fixed wild symbol. The will be placed randomly on the reels 2-4 directly adjacent to the initial fixed wild.
Energy Burst Feature: As soon as 3 similar symbols (except wild and scatter) appear on the 3rd slot reel, the Energy Burst Feature is activated.
The low paying symbols generate 3 bonus spins. The high paying symbols will generate 5 bonus spins.
This feature triggers frequently.
Nikola Tesla's Incredible Machine is a 5x3 video slot with 25 fixed payline featuring exploding wilds, reel clones and free spins with a level-up system.
It's got all the right elements to make it a superb online slot machine, including an inventive theme that will have you wonder why this man didn't get the recognition it deserves.
The problem was the wins. Despite tons of features, you rarely feel like you are getting much more than 3x or 5x your bet.
It can feel frustrating, especially when you can win up to 1,000 times your bet, but never feel like you can really get that close - unlike Sherlock of London slot also by Rabcat.
