NextGen created the Psycho slot in collaboration with Universal Studios. Therefore, Psycho is a slot inspired by the movie directed by the one and only Alfred Hitchcock. You know that Hitchcock’s movies are hair-raising horror movies, so you would expect for the slot to be scary as hell, as well. But no, it has its moments, but in general, it is not a slot that would make your heart beat like crazy. It is a 5-reel slot with 25 paylines, which offers a maximum payout potential of 1,500x the stake. Psycho RTP is 95.56%, meaning the game offers a little below the average Return to Player percentage, but still, it should not be judged by that. The game has a lot to offer, both in terms of theme and gameplay.
Your bets in Psycho online slot can go from 0.25 to 62.50 credits, and the payouts in the paytable are multiplied by the total bet you place. Therefore, the bigger your bet, the higher your rewards.
As you load the game, you will see the playing card Royals as the lowest paying symbol, paying anything from 100x to 150x for the best combo. Then, you will see the Bates Motel’s room key n.1 that also gives you 150x the stake, the eye peeking through the keyhole, and the envelope with dollar bills paying you 200x the stake for their respective winning combos. Norman Bates is the third best-paying symbol, giving you 250x the stake, while Lila Crane is the second-best paying symbol, giving you 1,000x the stake.
The Scatter is the symbol that represents the Bates Motel, which is also the highest-paying symbol, giving you 2,500x the stake reward, added to your payline wins! The Wild substitutes for all symbols on the reels, except for the Haunted Motel symbol, and multiplies your wins by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x or 20x.
At any point during the gameplay, the first Psycho bonus feature can be triggered at random. This is when the scene with the psycho killer from the movie appears, where the psycho starts swinging his knife. This is the creepiest scene you’ll get in the slot, but also the most exciting one. The Psycho Wilds feature adds Wilds at random, which can multiply your wins during the base game by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x or 20x.
Should you land 3 to 5 Scatters on the reels, you trigger 10 to 20 Free Spins, respectively. During the Free Spins, you will get more Wilds appearing on the reels, and again, all wins you make with Wilds may be multiplied by 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 10x, 20x and up to 40x. And, you can retrigger the Free Spins for even further boosted payouts!
You will be blown away by this slot. The visual effects used to capture all the important moments from the story and the gameplay are incredible. But that’s not the only thing you will be impressed by. Indian gamblers will be excited to understand that this slot’s hit frequency is incredible. Basically, at any spin, you’re getting something. A small or a big win, you are definitely getting a payout. Plus, the Free Spins can be easily triggered, and this bonus game can be quite rewarding, delivering a 12,500x the stake payout. This means that any time you want, you can load Psycho on your phone or another mobile device, start spinning and win up to 781,250 credits! As easy as that! I’m sure you won’t stay indifferent to all this. So, go on, take out your phone and start spinning the reels of this beautifully scary slot.
