How to Play Frankenstein

Frankenstein showcases several prizes above the reels, accessible during the ‘It’s Alive’ feature. These prizes can gain random multipliers when a Power Up symbol lands on the first reel. Players can activate the ‘It’s Alive’ feature by landing an ‘It’s Alive’ symbol in the first reel and a Frankenstein head in reels two to five. 

In this bonus, each Frankenstein head targets a prize, awarding you its credit value multiplied by any multipliers that were on it. Once the bonus ends, existing multipliers are removed and 2-3 new ones are randomly assigned to the higher-value prizes, excluding the smallest three blue prizes.

Beating Frankenstein with Advantage Play

Add up the multipliers on all blue prizes and the bottom three orange prizes (maxi, minor and mini). Then subtract this number by the number of multipliers accounted for. If this number is greater than 11, then the player has an edge.

Another way to do this is to treat every multiplier as 1 less than the number represented (4x is 3x, 3x is 2x, etc.) and add them all up. If this number is greater than 11x, then the player has an edge.

Targeting multipliers spread among the smaller blue prizes is lower variance than focusing on larger blue or orange prizes.

Do multipliers persist during the free games bonus?

Yes, built-up multipliers from the base game continue throughout the free games bonus, where ‘It’s Alive’ triggers more often with a taller reelset, offering chances for big wins.

Each ‘It’s Alive’ symbol reruns the feature, potentially leading to substantial wins.
