Appearance and Sound Effects
The game starts with a black-and-white video sequence as a car drives into the parking lot of the Bates Motel, wiping its windscreen to remove the heavy rain while the sound of thunderclaps make you jump off your seat. Even if you're playing Psycho on a mobile device in a brightly lit room, it's still pretty terrifying!
The haunting music and thunder continue once you arrive on the main game screen. The sign for the Bates Motel flickers on the left and immediately above it, you can see the creepy hostel on the top of the hill next to a couple of bare trees. The rain bounces off the drive and the moon hangs in the top-right corner while every few seconds, the entire screen is lit up by lightning strikes.
Most chilling of all is the shower screen that forms the background to the reels with condensation drips running down it.
The symbols include the hotel, an envelope filled with cash, a room key, Norman Bates, Marion Crane, a peephole, and five playing cards symbols.
In Psycho, the Knife with the word "WILD" written across it can substitute for all symbols except the scatter. Plus, when one or more wilds helps to make a winning combo, your prize can be multiplied by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, or 20x.
The Bates Motel is the scatter symbol, and when it lands anywhere in view three, four, or five times, you're awarded ten, fifteen, or twenty free games respectively. Extra wild symbols are present during the bonus, and wild wins can be multiplied by anything between 2x and 40x.
All wins begin with the leftmost reel and pay left to right on consecutive reels, except scatters which pay any.
