Mental Slot Review

Have you ever seen “The Silence of the Lambs”? Well, if you answered yes then you may be in luck because this game isn’t that far off as it features mental hospitals as the main theme. So, let’s stop talking and start spinning!

Just like other games from the same developer, the art style is extremely well cared for. The story takes place inside a psych ward that has long started to deteriorate as the wall and floor tiles are peeling off. The peculiar reel set features the patented mechanic indicators such as the X-Ways, X-Nudge, and X-Split. There is also a ways to win indicator located near the top of the reels.

As for the mechanics, the game utilizes the X-Ways system which is seamlessly combined with the other models in order to create a truly unique gaming experience.

If you are looking for a similar gameplay style then you could always look for BTG MegaWays titles but we recommend NoLimit City games as they all emit the same vibe. For example, a couple of our favorite games are “Das xBoot” and “East Coast VS West Coast”. Now, let’s take a look at how Mental plays.

How to Play Mental

The game consists of 6 rows and 5 reels. The max number of ways to win isn’t indicated we are pretty sure it’s more than 50,000. The controls are found at the sides of the slot allowing you to adjust the bet size, check out the paytable, activate the autoplay and turbo spin functions, buy a feature, or simply spin.

As for the stakes, you can bet between $0.20 and $70 per spin. Mental is an extremely highly volatile title with a hit frequency of 34.19% meaning almost one in three spins is a winning one. The maximum exposure is 66,666x which results in a top win of more than $4,500,000 while the game’s RTP is somewhat high at 96.08%.

Mental features 5 low paying and 5 high paying symbols. The first come in the form of a hand, kidneys, heart, brain, and an eye followed by 5 psych ward patients.

The slots special symbols are:

  • Wild – Represented by the skull, the wild substitutes for all other regular symbols.
  • Dead patient – A special symbol that can transform into other symbols.
  • Spider/Scorpion – Special symbols that trigger exclusive features.

Game Rules

Mental Features

There is a lot to talk about so let’s not spend any more time and get into explaining all of the game’s special features!

Fire Frames

During spins, 1-13 positions on the reels might light on fire causing them to split into two instances of the same symbol.

Fire Frames
Dead Patient

This feature activates when there are 2 dead patient symbols on the reels. It reveals one of the high-paying patient symbols with a multiplier between 5x and 9,999x attached to it. The multiplier depends on the symbol count on that reel.

Dead Patient
Enhancer Cells

Located at the bottom of reels 2 and 4 are two enhancer cells that are activated with 4 and 6 fire frames respectively. Each enhancer cell can reveal:

  • A dead patient symbol
  • A patient symbol
  • A wild symbol
  • X-Ways – Reveals 3 symbols of the same kind and expands the reel’s height
  • X-Split – Splits one symbol on each reel and doubles those symbols while also splitting itself into 2 wilds
  • X-Nudge – Nudges to be always visible on the reels. For every step the wild nudges, the win multiplier is increased by 1. More than one wild multipliers sum up.
Mental Transform

Triggered by landing spider symbols on reels 2 and 4. The spider symbol is transformed to X-Ways, X-Split, patient, dead patient, or wild symbol.

Mental Transform
Autopsy Free Spins

Landing 3 scorpions trigger the feature awarding 8 free spins. Each one in a fire frame awards an extra spin. On each spin, up to 5 random positions get a fire frame that remains there for the entire feature. Can be upgraded to lobotomy or mental free spins.

Lobotomy Free Spins

Triggered by 3 scorpions and one spider symbol awarding 9 free spins. Each of them on a fire frame award an extra spin. In addition to the autopsy spin features, spiders get sticky and trigger the mental transform feature for each spin.

The highest multiplier of each symbol is collected alongside its count. The count signifies the number of a particular patient symbol revealed. Once collected, the dead multiplier is transferred to the respective patient symbol based on the count when a new collected patient symbol appears on the reels. Every time a dead multiplier transfers to a patient symbol the count decrements by 1. These do not transfer to symbols revealed from dead patient symbols.

Mental Free Spins

Triggered by 3 scorpions and 2 spider symbols awarding 10 free spins. Both spider symbols get sticky and trigger mental transform for each spin. The dead multiplier count for the patient symbols doesn’t decrement after each transfer to a patient symbol. It keeps building up with each new dead patient symbol reveal.

All free spin modes can be purchased for different costs depending on your current active stake.
