There are no extra on-reel features in the Psycho online slots. You do have the option to gamble after any win – a great way to potentially boost any smaller line hits. This is a simple game that appears over the reels. You can choose the colour or suit of a playing card for 2x or 4x boosts.
You’ll need three or more scatter symbols to trigger the free spins bonus games in this online pokie. These show a shadowy view of the Bates Motel. Three will get you 10 free spins, four wins 15 spins and you get the maximum 20 spins for five. There are also scatter prizes for two or more of the hotel symbols.
There are two reasons this free spins bonus has big win potential. First, there are added wilds. These come with animations. One sees a shadowy figure appear behind the shower curtain (complete with a knife). The other involves the knife appearing in front of the reels. Both times you’ll hear edgy sound effects – and see extra wilds hacked into the reels.
When those wilds appear, the part of the Bate’s Motel sign which says ‘vacancy’ in the base game comes into play. This will give a random win multiplier of between 2x and 20x for any wins those extra wild symbols give you. This would be a great time to have the high paying character symbols linked on the reels.
You can retrigger for more spins (and more scatter prize) with three or more hotel symbols during this feature.
