Dr Wildshock: Mad Loot Lab Slot (Microgaming)

Dr Wildshock: Mad Loot Lab Slot (Microgaming)Dr Wildshock: Mad Loot Lab slot is a collaboration between Gold Coin Studios and Microgaming.

The mad scientist’s way appears to be highly profitable, or at least that's what we're made to believe, given the number of games that take this approach.

Let's dig deeper and find out what this slot is all about:

Game Set-Up

In Dr Wildshock: Mad Loot Lab, we are seeing a Cluster Pays system at work. I also witnessed a couple of features that include Free spins bonus, Adjacent Pays, Buy Feature, Cascading Reels, Collect Symbols, Extra Wilds, Increasing Multiplier, and some Wilds.

Betting and Prizes

The slot doesn’t offer a very large betting range, and if you are planning on playing for real money, the minimum per spin is $0.20 while the maximum is $10 per spin.

25,000x the stake ($250,000) is the highest that you can get from this slot. From my experience with the slot, I can say that it is highly volatile. Still, the RTP is fair and at 96.26%, it is within what I have seen from a majority of modern slots.

Dr Wildshock Mad Loot Lab Features

As in a standard game, the number of wilds you need to acquire before you can activate the bonus round ranges between 3 and 8, but it tends to stick to around 8.

When you land an Exploding Wild, the feature will most likely activate, delivering up to +4 extra wilds. The only difference in the bonus spin is the number of wilds required to retrigger the feature with extra spins. This is also how you're likely to boost the win multiplier in a major way.

To win, I needed at least three adjacent symbols to match horizontally or vertically. The four premium symbols pay out between 2 and 15 times your stake for five of a kind.

All wilds in the game substitute the regular pay symbols, which is a great way to assist in completing winning combos. The yellow warning sign Wild pays 60xs your bet for the same.

The Rolling Reels feature clears the grid of all winning icons, allowing new and/or existing symbols to fill in the gaps. This process continues as long as you win, with each wild win increasing the win multiplier by one.

However, the multiplier will reset between the base game and free spins. The Exploding Wild awards will reward you with +4 randomly positioned extra wilds on the next cascade, but only if it is part of a winning combination.

To activate the Bonus Round, you must collect between 3 and 8 wilds in a single cascading sequence. This will initially award you 10 free spins. You can collect between 5 and 6 wilds during the bonus round to retrigger the feature with +3 extra spins.

Theme and Design

Dr Wildshock: Mad Loot Lab has a cartoonish design. Although there are a few potion bottles on the right-hand side, the typical stone tile backdrop appears to be a bit cheap, since you would expect a full-blown lab in a game like this.

The peculiar symbols, on the other hand, increase the graphical view, so the dull backdrop isn't all that bad.


Dr Wildshock: Mad Loot Lab may not be one of the best developments from Microgaming.

However, there are many great features inside, plus the potential to win some decent profits, which makes it a great choice for all levels of gamers.
