Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness bonus features
This slot features Cthulhu, the monster created by Lovecraft in a series of horror stories. So it makes perfect sense that Tome of Madness is set in against the backdrop of an eerie place, which looks suspiciously like a dungeon. It’s certainly got the creepy, misty vibe to it.
Cascading reels drop symbols from the top of the screen and when symbols are removed after forming winning clusters, more drop from above to take their place.
On the lower end of the pay table are the gemstone symbols, which pay out up to x10 on a winning cluster of 10+ symbols. Of a higher value are the various artefacts, including a dagger, a gold ring, a mask and an amulet, each inlaid with one of the previously mentioned gemstones. For clusters of ten or more, these pay out up to x100 the stake.
There are three kinds of Wilds to look out for on Tome of Madness. The standard Wild is the Necronomicon, the fearsome book of the dear. The Rich Wilde character symbol acts as a x2 multiplier Wild. Finally, the cycloptic octopoid symbol is the Mega Wild, which only comes into play during the bonus round.
Eye Marks feature
Eye Marks are purple squares that surround certain symbol spaces on the grid. They can appear anywhere at random and if a winning cluster lands on one of these mark locations, the eye will open and two Wilds will be added to the grid once the win has been cleared and the cascade is complete.
To the left of the game screen players will note a meter keeping track of wins. Each time a win happens, the contributing symbols are stashed away in the meter and added up, charging the portal and activating features are specific intervals.
- 7 symbols collected: Two Wilds are added to the grid
- 14 symbols collected: Two Wilds added to the grid and the Abyss Portal Effect is activated if a win is hit with a Wild
- 27 symbols collected: Two further Wilds added, hit a win with one of them to activate the Void Portal Effect
- 42 symbols collected: Other World Free Round triggered
The Abyss Portal Effect eliminates one row or column, beginning from the winning Wild symbol. Removed symbols contribute to the Portal meter. If the effect removes a Wild, another removal will be triggered from that same symbol.
The Void Portal Effect randomly selects a regular symbol and removes all instances of that symbol from the reels. Removed symbols are added to the Portal meter.
Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness Free Spins
The free spins feature in this slot doesn’t look much like that in other slots. The Other World Free Round comprises one round, with three random Portal Effects activated. If the Portal meter is over 42 symbols, an additional Effect is added for every 3 extra winning symbols, up to a maximum of 7 effects.
- Abyss: Four Wilds are added to the grid, hit a win with any to trigger the Abyss Portal effect
- Void: Four Wilds added to the grid, hitting a win activates the Void Portal Effect
- Special Wilds: Four wilds are added to the grid
- A randomly chosen effect will be activated when a symbol drop does not result in a win
- During the round, 11 or 12 Eye Marks are present on the grid. Eyes are opened by landing a win on top of them. When all the eye marks have been opened, the Mega Wild Cthulhu symbol is added to the reels. The Mega Wild drops down the grid with each cascade, which continue until there are no more wins
