Play Frankenstein Online Casino Slots for Free or Real Money
Possibly the spookiest of the spooky slots out there, here we have a free version of the wonderful Frankenstein slot machine. You can play it here for free, with no registration required, no download and none of those pop-ups you keep getting on other sites.
Frankenstein is a 5-reel and 20-payline slot, created by NetEnt in association with Universal Studios and based entirely on the iconic 1931 movie that remains one of the best interpretation of the famous Gothic novel by Mary Shelley.
The slot is animated and there are no actual movie footage, however the intro starts with the epic graveyard scene which definitely played a significant part in earning this movie its cult status. High value symbols are The Monster, Dr Frankenstein, Fritz and, of course, the jar that contains the abnormal brain.
The paylines can be adjusted and players can start off with a single line and the minimum bet of $0.01. To maximise the number of coins per line as well as the number of active lines, players should simply click on the Max Bet tab, which will immediately increase the betting level and activate all 20 paylines, while retaining the coin value.
The coins are capped at $0.50 and the highest wager per spin is therefore $100.
Up to 1000 continuous spins can be selected through Auto Play mode which the player can end either manually or by entering a certain amount, which, once reached or exceeded, will stop Auto mode and return the player to the normal mode.
Additional sound, graphics and animation adjustments can be performed through the Game Settings tab to the left, which also contains the Quick Spin option for those who prefer a faster play.
With 96.6% return to player percentage, Frankenstein is medium to higher variance slot, which makes it a safer option for players who need to mind the budget.
Frankenstein offers two different types of Linking Wilds, Lightning and Fire Wild, which come with a chance of producing massive payouts. Both of the symbols land on reels 2, 3 and 4 and transform other icons into Wilds. The Lightning version will only appear during the main game, while its fire counterpart will land on every Free Spin.
Three or more Scatter symbols will trigger 10 Free Spins which can be re-load with 5 more spins if at least two more Scatter Mill icons appear. For the combination of three more Scatters, a new session of 10 free spins will be awarded. Multiplier can only pop up on the 5th reel and increase the winning up to x5.
Seeing an actual movie footage and including some additional references to the movie or the book would immensely improve the slot and make it so much more fun to play. Bonus features are a bit too basic even though the theme provided a great platform for creativity.
Introducing Linking Wilds on the other hand is a great contribution to the game. especially the fact that there is a guaranteed Fire Wild during every bonus spin – if you manage to land the 3 Scatters combo, which is not always an easy task and the wait can be a bit of a nerve-racking experience.
It seems amazing that the Frankenstein brand has does not seem to have entered Las Vegas at this stage. You would think that the monster would have been converted to slots play in land-based casinos a long time ago. But, surely it will come soon, maybe in huge multiplayer format like Batman and Wheel of Fortune slots.

Fun theme with a great intro that delivers what was promised - an acceptable tribute to the iconic movie, with a decent return to player percentage.
There is no doubt that the theme could have been executed in a more bombastic way, which would be quite justified in this case, but even so, Frankenstein is a nice addition to NetEnt overall offer, that would be much better if one could only trigger those free spins more often.
