Strap Yourself in or Get a Mad Doctor to Do It for You,  as We Take on the Mental Slot From NoLimit City!

We are always excited when a new NoLimit City Slot is released, and this aptly named title Mental promises to be just that.

Rizk Casino will be adding the Mental slot on release, the 31st of August 2021, along with loads more of our recommended casinos.

Mental Slot Theme

The backstory for this slot is a particularly dark theme. Located in an abandoned mental institute, filled with deadly spiders and scorpions and some very dark "testing" going on, with numbered patients receiving some very sinister treatments, including lobotomies.

Reel symbols include things like a pair of lungs, brains, hearts, dead patients (you get a general idea!).. so if you are particularly squeamish, this slot may not sound very appealing, our patient slot advice is that you should seek out some cartoon styled fluffy bunny slots immediately!

With a complete design focus on being Mental, this slot has a dark, twisted theme and a haunting, eerie soundtrack. It comes with so many special features and modifiers that, with a maximum win of 66,666x stake, fits the game title perfectly!

It's no joke that trying to communicate how this slot really works effectively is probably going to leave us feeling a bit mental afterwards! There are many mini-features that all interact with each other, multiple free Spins bonus rounds that can be triggered, and some insane bonus buy options where allowed!

Mental Slot - Loading Screen

Base Gameplay - Feature Overload!

The base game in Mental takes place on  5 reels with alternating reel sizes (3, 2, 3, 2, 3). With no modifiers in play, this gives you a starting 108 ways to win payline structure.

During every spin, you can almost guarantee this will be increased to a much higher number of ways and multiplier values which in essence act like additional ways too.

Features that have been used on previous NoLimit slots are all present here, so you can expect xWays, xSplit and xNudge along with additional features such as Fire Frames, Dead Patient, Mental Transform and Enhancer Cells all working together to increase the ways, multipliers and giving this slot the insane winning potential when things line up nicely.

If that wasn't enough to try and work out, there are also 3 unique free spins rounds on offer, Autopsy Freespins, Lobotomy Freespins, and the equivalent of a 5 scatter trigger bonus round Mental Freespins round, along with the ability to upgrade your free spins during the bonus round!

Honestly, the sheer number of interactions in the base game and free spins can feel a little overwhelming, but we will break down all of these mini-features later so you can understand what each feature is doing at a glance!

It may not help you fully understand this slot without playing it first, but we will try!

Mental Slot - Special Features

Base Game

Scorpion Symbol

The base gameplay is anything but standard with many special features adding additional ways that can interact together, along with the ability to gain additional multipliers too on high paying symbols.

Needless to say, amongst all of the confusion, the wins are nicely highlighted on the reel from left to right, so even if you aren't aware of exactly what's going on, you can still see the wins!

Spider Symbol

However, the main symbols to look out for are the  3 Scorpion symbols and 2 Spider symbols. The Scorpion symbols effectively act as scatters, and the spider symbols, if landed in addition, will trigger the more potent versions of the free spins rounds, Lobotomy and Mental versions.

Given that the bonus buys for the Mental Free Spins costs 1000x stake to buy, you should be very excited if you manage to land this from regular base gameplay!

A whole host of mini-features can activate on each spin, and several will interact with each other such as the Fire Frames being a requirement for the Enhancer Cells

  • Fire Frames
    Occurs frequently, with anywhere from  1 to 13 random positions on the reels being given a fire frame that will split a symbol into two parts.
  • Dead Patient
    Whenever you land two Dead Patient symbols on the reels, there is a chance to be given a random multiplier - ranging from 5x  to 9999x on a Patient Symbol.
  • Enhancer Cells
    Increases the chance of wins whenever 4 or 6 fire frames appear. These add boosters that can include xWays, xNudge, xSplit, along with other boosters.
  • Mental Transform
    Whenever the Spider symbol lands on the reels, a Symbol transform feature can occur.

Bonus Buy Feature

Mental wouldn't be mental without some crazy bonus features, so players in countries where this feature is allowed can look forward to a variety of bonus buy options that are priced bet on the current bet size.

Be very careful with the random feature are you could end up paying a premium cost for a very regular bonus round.

  • Autopsy Free Spins (8-11 free spins) 80 x stake
  • Lobotomy Free Spins (9-13 free spins) 230 x stake
  • Mental Free Spins (10-15 free spins) 1,000 x stake
  • Random Feature  (1 of the 3 features listed above) 232 x stake

Free Spins Rounds

There are 3 different free spins bonus rounds on offer in Mental. These all require 3 scatters to trigger, and then for the upgraded versions, either 1 or 2 of the Spider symbols too.

It is also possible to upgrade the free spins modes during the bonus round, by landing the special Spider Symbols.

Autopsy Freespins

Activated by 3 Scorpion Scatter symbols and will trigger a bonus mode with sticky Fire Frames.

Starts with at least 8 free spins with extra spins awarded for landing the Scorpion Scatter in a Fire Frame on the triggering spin.

This mode can be upgraded to the Lobotomy or Mental Freespins.
