Theme and Design

Mutagenes throws you into a futuristic laboratory floating in the depths of space. The game’s visuals are a testament to Peter & Sons’ quirky and distinctive art style. You’ll find yourself surrounded by test tubes, monitors, and other lab equipment, all designed with that signature Peter & Sons flair.

The symbols on the reels include low-paying card suits and higher-paying themed icons like syringes, hands, eyes in bottles, and brains in jars. It’s clear that the designers had a blast creating this eerie yet oddly charming world.

Gameplay and Features

Mutagenes plays out on a 6×4 grid with 4,096 ways to win. That’s a lot of potential winning combinations. The game uses a cascading reels mechanic, which means winning symbols explode and new ones fall into place, potentially creating new wins.

Here are some of the standout features:

  1. Increasing Multipliers: Each cascade increases the win multiplier by 1. In the base game, this resets between spins, but in the free spins round, it keeps growing until the feature ends.
  2. Expanding Wilds: These can appear on all reels except the first one, both in the base game and free spins. When they land, they expand to cover the entire reel, potentially leading to some big wins.
  3. Infection Feature: This can trigger randomly in both the base game and free spins. When it hits, any mid or low-pay symbol on the grid gets replaced by a high-pay symbol. Talk about a mutation.
  4. Mutation Feature: Another random trigger that can occur in both base game and free spins. When it activates, 2 or more reels are selected, and a random number of high symbols are placed on them before the rest of the symbols are revealed.
  5. Free Spins: Land 3 or more scatters to trigger 10 to 15 free spins. During this round, the increasing multiplier doesn’t reset between spins, which can lead to some seriously big wins.

Betting and Potential

Mutagenes caters to a wide range of players with its betting range of €0.10 to €50 per spin. There’s also a “Golden Bet” option that increases your stake by 50% but gives you a better chance of triggering free spins or landing expanding wilds.

For those who can’t wait to get to the action, there’s a Free Spins Buy feature. For 120x your bet, you can jump straight into 7 to 12 free spins.

The max win potential is set at a whopping 12,000x your bet. That’s not the highest we’ve seen, but it’s certainly nothing to sneeze at. Combined with the high volatility, it means that while big wins might not come often, they can be substantial when they do hit.

RTP and Volatility

Mutagenes comes with a default RTP of 96.3%, which is pretty solid. However, it’s worth noting that there are lower RTP versions out there (94%, 90.5%, and 86%), so always check what version you’re playing.

The volatility is set to high, which means you might experience longer dry spells between wins, but the potential for bigger payouts is there. It’s a game that rewards patience and bankroll management.

Final Thoughts

Mutagenes looks set to be another unique addition to Peter & Sons’ portfolio. The theme is quirky and intriguing, and the features seem well-designed to keep players engaged. The combination of cascading reels, increasing multipliers, and expanding wilds in the free spins round has the potential for some exciting gameplay.

However, the high volatility means it might not be for everyone. If you’re a player who enjoys the thrill of chasing big wins and doesn’t mind weathering some lean periods, Mutagenes could be right up your alley. On the other hand, if you prefer more frequent, smaller wins, you might want to look elsewhere.

As always, remember to play responsibly. Set a budget before you start playing and stick to it. Mutagenes, like all slots, should be about entertainment first and foremost.

Are you ready to step into the lab and see what mutations await? Mark your calendars for August 8, 2024, and prepare for a slot experience that’s truly out of this world.
