About The Game

Rich Wilde has become a familiar face to gamblers around the world, and he’s perhaps at his most recognisable in grid format. With a full title of Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness, this slot is certainly one that can seem confusing at first, but continues to impress the player. With a bonus game, a bonus game within a bonus game, and the potential to win 2000x your bet, this slot is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Paytable

Tome of Madness doesn’t follow the usual rules with regards to the pay table. Wins aren’t calculated by 3, 4 or 5 of a kind on a win line in this slot. Instead, wins are calculated by matching 4 or more symbols that are touching horizontally and/or vertically. Win values differ between each amount of symbols you match, with different wins from 4 symbols all the way up to 10+. In order of value, the available gems are green, blue, red and purple. The premium symbols available, again in order of value, are the mask, the ring, the sword and the octopus. Unlike most slots out there no two symbols pay the same. Matching 10 or more octopus symbols pays a whopping 100x bet. If the Rich Wilde wild symbol (that’s a tongue twister!) is touching any of your matching symbols your win is multiplied by 2. Winning symbols are removed and new symbols fall down in their place.

Gameplay

Before we talk about the bonus, let’s talk about how to get there first. A lot of people find Tome of Madness to be a confusing slot, but the concept is quite simple once you understand it. At the bottom left of your screen there is a circle with the numbers 0/42 written inside. This is your counter, and it’s pretty easy – get to 42 to unlock the bonus. There are 4 distinct markers around that counter, and each one does something to help you along the way. When you reach the first marker, two wilds are added to the grid. When you reach the second another two wilds are added, but if you win using either of these wilds they trigger Abyss. Abyss removes an entire column or row from the grid. The important thing to remember here is that the symbols removed by Abyss contribute towards making your way around the counter, so ideally you want to use both of your special wilds to trigger an Abyss with both, to take you through to the third marker. When you reach the third marker you are given another two wilds, and this time if you win with either of these they trigger Void. Each Void removes all of any one symbol on the grid, and again these count towards you getting to 42, so ideally you will have two Voids at this point to take your counter through to 42 and unlock the Other World Free Round. In order to trigger your special effects, you must win as soon as your special wilds are placed on the grid. If you win with them after different symbols have dropped in, they will no longer activate. After you pass 42 on your counter, for every 3 additional winning symbols you are awarded a portal effect, up to a maximum of 7. These portal effects are crucial in the Other World Free Round. Within the game there also is an opportunity to gain two bonus wilds, available for use when all other wins are exhausted, and these are frequently used to reach 7 portal effects. To trigger these you need to match winning symbols above the lit up eye symbol on the grid, but this isn’t available on every spin so keep an eye out – pun intended!

Bonus

So now you’ve reached the Free Round. What happens now? This is the fun bit. For every portal effect you’ve received you’ll receive a number of wilds on the grid, and each time no wins are left you will either be given a Void or an Abyss to help you along, and then more wilds, until eventually all of your portal effects have been used. Within your Free Round, there are 12 eye symbols on a board at the side of your screen, that directly correspond to squares on your grid. If you can match winning symbols in each of these 12 spaces you will trigger what is known as the MEGA WILD (we’ll call it that, because we all know I can’t spell the real name), which triggers your “bonus within the bonus” as it’s known, and drops a 4×4 wild symbol into a new grid, which continues dropping down until it falls off the board. Don’t forget that both the Mega Wild and the Other World Free Round can also both contain Rich Wilde wild symbols (or David Beckhams as Will likes to call them) which can double any of your wins. The potential is good with this one.

My Thoughts

Tome of Madness has very quickly become one of my favourite slot games, and is one that I would be quick to suggest to anyone who wants a game that’s fun, not too difficult to bonus, and has some good potential. The Other World Free Round is a great feature which means that even if you don’t manage to summon the Mega Wild, there are still some excellent wins to keep you going until you reach that wild!
