This is not the first time that Rich Wilde has been the feature character of a Play’n Go online slot. He is a popular figure and players love to join him on his adventures. In this Rich Wilde Tome of Madness online slot, the inspiration is the imagination of H.P. Lovecraft. Anyone who loves the world of fantasy cannot fail to be impressed by this creative and engaging slot game from Play’n Go.
Basic game information
The Tome of Madness slot is a cascading grid slot. This means that as you match winning combinations of symbols, they are removed, and new ones cascade down to take their place, potentially creating more winning combinations. Each consecutive win helps to increase the power level of the Portal on the left-hand side of the screen. Cascading symbols to look out for include different coloured stones which have a low winning value. Higher wins can be gained from a cluster of Cthulhu skulls, rings, daggers or octopus pendants. The bigger the cluster is, the higher the win is.
Tome of Madness is not just about the base game. There is plenty of excellent bonus action to enjoy.
There is not just one wild symbol in this slot game. There are three different symbols which can help to create winning combinations in different ways. The standard wild symbol is a book. The x2 wild symbol is Rich Wilde himself. The final type of wild symbol is the mega-wild which features a creature that looks a lot like a giant octopus.
Pink eye marks can appear at any time during the base game. If you line up a winning combination on top of where an eye mark appears, two Special Wilds are added to the grid after the win sequence is complete.
The Portal is located at the left-hand side of the screen. When you achieve a winning cluster, you will notice that the power of the portal increases. The power continues to increase for every consecutive win that you achieve. You can activate certain features, depending on the total number of winning symbols that you achieve.
- Seven winning symbols add two Special Wilds to the grid.
- Fourteen winning symbols add two Special Wilds to the grid. If these wilds form part of a winning cluster, the Abyss Portal effect is triggered. This means that all the symbols in the same row or column as a special wild are put to use to charge the Portal.
- Twenty-seven winning symbols add two Special Wilds to the grid. If these wilds form part of a winning cluster, the Void Portal effect is triggered. This means that a random symbol is chosen and all incidences of that symbol are removed from the grid and used to charge the Portal.
Other World Free Rounds
If you manage to collect 42 winning symbols, you trigger the Other World Free Round Feature. This feature starts with three random Portal effects for 42 symbols and a special Portal effect for every three extra symbols, up to a maximum of seven Portal effects. Each Portal effect continues until a cascade does not result in a win. There is also an opportunity to unlock the Mega Wild Cthulhu Symbol during this free rounds bonus which allows you to achieve bigger wins.
Game How to Play
Tome of Madness is a cascading grid slot which means that you do not have the opportunity to adjust pay lines, but you can adjust the bet that you want to make.
The rules of the game can be a little confusing, so it’s a good idea to check up on them before you start. The basic idea is to achieve as many consecutive wins as possible so that you charge the Portal and access the different features. Once you get the hang of this, playing is a lot of fun.
