So just what can you see in a slot game entitled ‘The Invisible Man’? This is another great release from NetEnt and the only thing you can’t see with that company is failure to produce an interesting game.
This is based of course on the H G Wells novel that has subsequently been turned into movies and television series with great success. Right from the start this is an entertaining and faithful reproduction of this great story. The intro shows a spooky house and it’s snowing. Inside though is the scientist who is about to fulfill his dream of making himself invisible.
It’s a great intro and will really put you in the mood to play the game. ‘The Invisible Man’ is a five-reel game that has a total of three rows of symbols. In the background you can see the laboratory with lots of chemicals in test tubes bubbling away.
The game has 20 paylines and this is a fixed amount. All you have to do is decide how much you want to stake on each spin of the reels. The coin value goes from £0.01 to £0.50, there’s a maximum of ten that you can play so the minimum stake is £0.01, handy if you’re just playing for fun and a maximum of £200. That’ll suit all kinds of players.
The game includes a feature that is common in a few NetEnt games, namely that this pays both ways rather than just left to right.
The five high value symbols in this game all come from the original book. There’s Arthur Kemp, Dr Cranley. Mr Hall, Mrs Hall and Flora Cranley. Also making an appearance are the Ten to Ace poker symbols.
There are two wilds in this game. One being the policeman trying his hardest to spot the scientist and the other is the Invisible Man himself.
In the base game the policeman wild is on the first reel and the Invisible Man on the fifth. If either appear then they move along the reels, the Invisible Man from five to one and the policeman from one to five. Each time it moves the reels are re-evaluated and any wins awarded to you. All these respins are completely free and cease when the Invisible Man disappears off the reels. Look out for the change in the reels to reveal more wilds who’ll begin their own journey and get you more wins.
The soundtrack to the game is spooky and tense, definitely not one to mute. Have a good look through the paytable will help your understanding of the game. Some free games will help too. There’s also an autoplay feature, standard NetEnt one, you can set between ten and a thousand automated spins can be set or go for the advanced setting that allows a more precise number to be set.
Look out for when the policeman and the Invisible Man merge on the reels. This gets you ten free spins and during these there will be more wilds on the reels. Another merging will see you get four more free spins.
Above the reels there are two meters and they have eight spaces. When a wild goes on its travels and drops off the end, a space is filled up. If all of the spaces are filled up before the free spins come to an end then another bonus game begins.
This can either be the Police Spins where there are three free spins and five wilds on the reels. The other is Griffin’s Rage, here the Invisible Man goes to three locations – The Mansion, Ipping Station and The Lion’s Head Inn – and it’s pick an item time. There are five items at each place and they reveal either cash prizes or multipliers. Don’t find the red police hat though as that ends the bonus round right away.
This really is a great game. The Wilds walking along the reels can get you some great wins as can the bonus game. Highly recommended.
