Frankenstein from NetEnt: Slot Review - this great slot will shock you into life!
Based on the novel by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, this slot game features the grotesque creature, crazy scientist Victor Frankenstein created in one of his scientific experiments. The slot greets players with 20 paylines and five reels.
While I did note that the Frankenstein slot is based on a novel, if is, of course, one of Net Entertainment’s branded slots. The collaboration with Universal Pictures, which made a movie out of the classic book, has resulted in a game, which includes an outstanding intro video. The cinematic video can, of course, be skipped, but if you want to put yourself in the right mood for this gothic video slot, you should certainly watch it.
Of course, this slot game isn’t just a feast for the eyes but has some impressive bonus features. There are two different types of wild symbols. The Fire Wild is exclusive to free spins rounds, while the Lightning Wild pops up during ‘normal’ rounds and turns a minimum of two nearby symbols into wilds. The free spins are triggered by Frankenstein himself, to be precise three or more result in ten free spins. With a great multiplier of five, this is really the feature that players want to hit.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
NetEnt loves dark themes. I wouldn’t even want to start listing all of the software providers ‘scary’ slots - that would be a rather boring task. One very dark slot game is Frankenstein by NetEnt.
The background depicts an expertly designed walled room with chains hanging from the wall. The reels itself are a simple black and work rather well with the background. If that may sound a little too dark for you, don’t worry, payline information is displayed alongside the main reel in bright yellow. As one has come to expect from NetEnt, the sound effects are great, authentic and rather scary. Take a listen!

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots
As with most NetEnt video slots, players are in with a chance from fairly little or can risk it all in one spin. Given that Frankenstein is an interesting and fun game to play, it is never a loss to risk a little in this slot game. However, it is relatively rare that the multiplier is hit. For that reason, players would really need to think hard about what to risk. The usual rules apply, it’s all down to luck.
Our Verdict on Frankenstein
Frankenstein by NetEnt is the full package. It offers good chances and solid amounts. However, it's the game's graphics that truly make this slot stand out from the crowd - also, from the other expertly designed Gothic-themed slots by NetEnt. This game isn't simply a copy but rather unique in its look and feel.
