General Frankenstein Slot review
There are four main symbols in the game: Frankenstein Monster, Dr. Frankenstein, Fritz, and The Brain. Most of the time, however, the reels will be populated by card symbols which all look alike, which means the graphical setting isn’t as good as it could have been with this theme. The card symbols really appear too often, with the main symbols only being scarcely present. With the low frequency of high-paying symbols, wins are not frequent, and most of the time will only happen when a Wild is involved.
Linked Wilds is the main feature of the game as it gives you a chance to get a massive win. Wild symbol will turn two or more nearby symbols into Wilds. In the base game you’ll get Lightning Wild symbols, and during the free spins on each spin you’ll be guaranteed one Fire Wild. Wilds only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. While wins aren’t frequent in Frankenstein slot, with these Linked Wilds there’s always a good chance you’ll win big, you just have to wait it out.
Free spins game will bring you 10 free spins when you land 3 or more Scatters. Not much, but during the free spins game you’ll get +5 free spins if you land 2 Scatters, and +10 if you land 3 Scatters. The Fire Wild is responsible for most of the big wins during the free spins game, and there’s also the multiplier which can go up to 5x. These two features make the free spins game very rewarding.
Frankenstein is a penny slot as the minimum possible bet is $0.01, but that’s for one payline only, which definitely isn’t advisable for this high variance slot. Minimum bet to cover all 20 paylines is $0.20, and the maximum is $100. It is advisable to play all 20 paylines despite NetEnt giving you an opportunity to play less, as the variance is already high enough. Scatters are very infrequent, too, so with less than 20 paylines it’s unlikely the free spins game will get triggered.

Frankenstein Slot – Strategy and Tips
Theoretical payout of this slot game is 96.70% which is absolutely excellent, but it’s a high variance game that doesn’t pay much if at all during the base game, so many spins are needed to actually make the game pay. Despite the high theoretical payout, it’s difficult to beat this game, and it’s best played on Autoplay with a bankroll that’s large enough to cope with so many spins. In any case, this is a standard NetEnt game, and NetEnt fans will be used to how this game plays and will know how to handle it.
