Go a little mad for the Psycho mobile slot that is wild with huge multipliers.
It’s a dark and stormy night. Thunder and lighting are booming in the background as you see the bates house in the far distance.
In desperation, you check in to the Bates Motel in the hope of running away with all your stolen money. But to walk away from this thriller of a game, you’re going to need cash, or you’re going to end up dead.
Question is… will you survive the night and this NextGen slot machine?
From the black and white intro, to the ‘noir’ pastiche colours splashing the screen, this Psycho slot beautifully balances your favourite horror thriller movie with the visual impact you’ve come to expect of modern mobile slots.
Add some eerily effective use of the original score from the movie, and your spine will have chills as you press spin. And we fully recommend you play Psycho will full sounds – without it you may find yourself quickly bored.
Not necessarily because this game is boring, but rather because there are long periods of waiting, followed by fast periods of heart-pumping action.
Much like any good thriller, NextGen build up the suspense, up until that fateful shower moment when you get a huge release of killer wins.
At any point during the game, you’ll get random wilds. Which in the base game, will usually come on their own, though sometimes with a healthy multiplier. Mostly 2x or 3x, but every once in a while, as high as 20x.
It’s during the free spins that the Psycho video slot gets very interesting as every wild on screen comes with a multiplier, and this time round, up to an impressive 40 times multiplier if you are really, really lucky.
We calculated the top amount you can win at 1528 times your overall bet, making this a fairly high variance machine.
So watch your budget, as needless to say, the Psycho slot game is as dangerous as its title would suggest – and a little simple. If you are after something a little less dangerous and bonus packed, then Gorilla Go Wild is more for you.
But if, on the other hand, you want to make a killing, then you know what to do.
Sounds mad? Sure. But to quote Norman: “we all go a little mad sometimes”.

Stabbing Wilds: At any point during the game, you might get 'mummy' bates in her shower cap, or Norman Bates hand, stabbing at the screen wildly.
And we mean 'wildly' as you get random wilds on any of the five reels.
Now, normally - maybe 60% of the time? at a guess? - that would be it. But every once in a while the game adds a random multiplier of anything from 2x, to 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x or 20x. The 10x and 20x are fairly rare, but not unseen.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3, 4 or 5 scatters on screen and you'll get 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively.
What's interesting here is that you get the stabbing wilds, just like in the base game, but getting a multiplier on it is now guaranteed.
These are multiplied by even more - mostly by either 2x, 4x, 6x or 8x.
And then, in a moment of pure killing frenzy, you might catch a 10x, 20x or even 40x multiplier.
We weren't quite sure what to expect from a game based on the iconic black and white movie, but NextGen have done a valiant effort at recreating that suspense and thrill, without sacrificing beautiful graphics.
The Psycho mobile slot game is not the most complicated of games, really you're just hoping for one good multiplier to hit the reels on a wild juuuuust right...
This is for those of you willing to enjoy a simple wild game, on a simple wild night of slot playing.
Time to turn off all the lights, grab your iPad or Android tablet, and click spin for a spine tingling high-danger, high-thrill game.
