More about the Psycho

The ‘mother’ lives in a spooky little house on the hill which is displayed in the background.

Symbols of the slot

There are certain high-value symbols in the slots online named Psycho which include the key of the motel room, an envelope filled with cash, 2 protagonists- Norman Bates and Marion Crane and a peephole. The lower value symbols are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. The wild symbol is represented by a big, wild ‘Red’. The scatter symbol is represented by a wonky view of the house where the Bates’ lady lives. The wild gives multiplier up to 20x in the base game.
