This slot got an interesting theme as it deals with 80’s British pop culture. I have to say I sympathize with this unique subject and great to hear some symbolic, classic music from that age (players can select own background music which is well appreciative) but somehow I don’t really like what this slot gives in visualization. Though I wouldn’t have problem with the quality of graphics but the symbols are not too attractive for me. I don’t feel they would be too fitting to each other and even if they look solid one by one, but mixing them wasn’t a good idea and I think the overall view is a little bit ruined by this cavalcade of figures.
This 25-payline product is a Jackpot game and has a very interesting triggering method that combined with a little bonus game. If the third reel contains a Lucky Seven dice emblem at the end of a spin the player is awarded with the sum of the numbers the dice show and this amount is multiplied with the total stake. If the dice give cumulative 7 the initial win is credited as in normal case but the dice spin again and give another prize but if golden dice appear instead of the ordinary one, the Jackpot is automatically won. It’s not the most activated mini bonus that I’ve seen but when it appears always there the excitement factor that says ‘Maybe now’.
5 Wilds on an active line represent the best paying line and gives back 10.000 times of line bet and Record emblems on every second reels activate free spins that have 5 selectable options, 5 different game features so everyone can choose what fits the game style the best. Every one of them awards 10-15 free games and one makes possible the Wild to appear in stacked format, the other turns randomly selected regular symbols into Wilds, a popping up Pyramid symbol on the middle reel transforms into a multiplier value in range of x2-x4, while if a special figure lands anywhere on reels reward an instant cash prize and the final feature gives the power for the House emblem to add another 1-5 free spins.
It’s really great to have freedom to choose from them and they’re really great features but there’s some slightly difference between their payouts. I always use one of the multiplier or stacked Wild features because I think they’re the best profitable extras at least I noticed some improved payouts with them.
The slot also has a rewarding bonus game after scattered Bonus symbols appear on 3 specific reels, then a little ‘Pick me’ style bonus game is started where we have to collect as many every kind of objects as we can to have the possible biggest prize. The maximum winnable amount here is 1000 times of total bet but in my playing sessions it commonly was between x20-x75.
I consider this slot as a very good game and despite I dislike its appearance I like to play it because the very solid and profitable game qualities. Nowadays, some Ash Gaming products can surprise me with their rewarding attitude and definitely Madness is one of them. I also appreciate here the players can select some things to fit the best to the personal taste and I think it’s a very player-friendly behavior on the developer’s part. Great game – try it!
