The return of Rich Wilde was well worth the wait as he tackles his greatest challenge of all in this Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness mobile slot.
This is his fourth adventure so far, starting in the Aztec Idols slot, then travelling to find the Pearls of India game and finally getting his greatest (and most Popular) adventure in the Book of Dead video slot.
So where is he now? He’s home, but he has brought with him a mysterious tome to decipher, with a strange eye that opens and closes at will… What terrors will he find within? None other than then eternal monster god Cthulhu who will consume your soul if you’re not careful.
“That is not dead which can eternally lie, and with strange aeons, even death may die.” H.P. Lovecraft.
Beware. This 5×5 grid Tome of Madness slot is not for the faint of heart, but if you are brave you may just discover a lifetime of riches in these ancient relics and artefacts.
The Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness max win is 2,000x your total bet. A cluster of 4 or more wins create a win, so it’s not hard to get a win.
But you need to get around 14 symbol wins to get anything above 10x your bet, so thank-god for those little wins because they explode and more come tumbling down from above.
The reason the wins are so important is that they charge the portal, and when fully charged you get one of two special wilds: Rich Wilde who has a 2x multiplier or The Tome Itself who may trigger a special portal.
The special portal is triggered by a win using those tomes, which in essence removes symbols from the reels in order to give you more avalanches and more wins.
But it is a very high volatile game. Which means that while you get lots of little wins and wilds, it can eat up at your budget. Cthulhu is not a forgiving demon beast from the nether regions of hell.
However, hit the right feature, and trigger the free spins, and this Tome of Madness game online will reward you for your bravery by giving you an infinite free spin. Well, not quite infinite. You basically win ‘features’ – something between 2 and 7 usually.
And every time you lose one of the feature hits. When all the features are gone the Tome of Madness free spins end. So if you win for infinite spins, yes, this is an infinite bonus round… but then again this is a slot machine.
This Play’n GO online slot is a little complicated. Maybe not the first in the Play’n GO slots range to jump right in, but if you are familiar with this studio, then you’ll know exactly what you are getting into and all we can say is… jump in. The water is just fine… despite the monster lurking within.

Cluster Pays and Avalanching Reels: When you get 4 or more matching symbols touching horizontally and/or vertically, you get a win. Winning symbols are removed and more symbols fall down to replace them and you get another symbol again.
Eye Marks: One space is marked by strange symbols, and when you form a win you open the special eye and add 2 special wilds to the grids once the wins have settled.
During the other world free round, opening every eye summons the mega wild.
Portal: Winning will charge the portal to the left. As you charge the portal (winning on 14 symbols), special wilds will be added to the grid. If you get a win after a special wild, the abyss portal effect triggers. After winning on 27 symbols, you get 2 special wilds added to the grid. If a win is achieved with a special wild, the void portal effect is triggered.
Other World Free Spins: Open the portal after winning on 52 symbols and get free spin rounds. Every 3 additional winning symbols add to the extra portal effect, up to a maximum of 7.
1 random portal effect is triggered when no more wins are achieved until all have been used. The free rounds conclude when all portal effects have been played out.
H.P. Lovecraft would be proud of this homage to it's biggest monster, with enough complicated features to make even the master of horror wonder at the amounts of tentacles within the game.
But in the end, this is just a grid slot of the best kind made by the master of grid slots Play'n GO. If you look too much into it, the way to trigger all these different wilds and features just amount two things: hit the eye or hit the wins.
The Tome of Madness slot on mobile is a 5x5 grid game with avalanching reels, 3 types of wilds and 2 special features won on multiple wins. You also trigger free spins which don't end until you hit all the features.
As long as you don't get swept up in the details and stick to this basic principle, you'll love this real money game if you love similar fares like the Moon Princess slot or the Viking Runecraft game.
