NextGen Adds Psycho To Its Library of Mobile Slots

Nextgen

NextGen’s new branded slot Psycho, made in collaboration with Universal Studios will be available for play at casinos offering NextGen products this May. The theme derived its motivation from one of the highly lauded works of Alfred Hitchcock. The 1960’s celluloid suspense called Psycho, Alfred was at the time a celebrated film director by now already regarded as the foremost suspense movie director the US had to offer. Anthony Perkins, then a young lad performed a masterful portrayal of Norman Bates, the central character.

The Psycho video slot release date was delayed after NextGen made a difficult call to delay the release from its initial April launch till this month to enable a simultaneous release on mobile and desktop. It’s a suspense-horror with 5reels and 25 paylines that has the same scare factor as its celluloid parent, that I wholeheartedly trust will have a similar impact on on-line gaming as Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece.

Game-play offers an equalised combination of superbly reproduced animations and graphics, blended with the frightening soundtrack, a video clip featuring the 1960’s film original starts off setting the atmosphere even before the reels had a single spin.

The scene, as in the film is set in the desolate Bates motel, after a newly built highway cause a detour that took traffic miles away from the old motel. The Bates Motel’s owners lurks a mysterious house occupying a hilltop behind the rundown Bates motel. Norman the young Bates boy murders the only motel occupant, a shyster woman that stole $40,000 from her mobster boss before making a run out of town, in the shower. A suspenseful twisted plot starts on this note gathering sinister momentum to the bloody end.

The plastic shower curtain where Norman initially killed the woman serves as the backdrop to a 5reel 25 pay-line reel-set with Haunted House scatters and Psycho Wilds, with wilds responsible for an up to x20 multiplier.

Cool Wolf Goes Mobile

Cool Wolf an exciting 5reel 243 pay-line wonder release by on-line software developer Microgaming will have players howling at the moon. Providing a nice breath of fresh air, the creation team took the theme just bit off the beaten track, by presenting players with a teenage guy that’s a nerd during the day and turns into a Cool Wolf at night.

The theme is basically a nod to the hilarious 1985 teen comedy film, starring a young Michael J Fox as the Teen Wolf main character. The slot theme is as the movie’s theme quite simple, an all-American high school geek discovers he is from a family with a long history where the males all turn werewolf. This family trait accidentally becomes public knowledge, which turns him into an instant high school celebrity with the ensuing popularity, and then the shenanigans ensue. In this instance, a couple of cheerleaders, some cineplex tickets, with funky glass, transported to HowlingWood don’t take much of an imagination.
