The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man is a NetEnt slot that's based on the science fiction novel of the same name by H. G. Wells, in which a scientist called Griffin invents a way to make himself appear invisible, but once he successfully proves the procedure, is unable to reverse it.


Therefore, whenever he leaves home and wants to be seen, he has to bandage up his face and don a hat, thick coat, and gloves. With many townsfolk turning against him, Griffin becomes hunted by the police and has to hide out wherever he can while stealing food and clothes from local shops.

In The Invisible Man slot, both Griffin and the Police play an important role in the Free Spins Feature where you not only receive ten free games, but you also get the chance to trigger either the Griffin's Rage or the Police Spins Bonus. There's also an exciting special feature called Walking Wilds, which allows the two wild symbols to "walk" across the reels awarding re-spins.

More about the Software Provider

NetEnt slots can be found at hundreds of online casinos, and some of the most popular are the pooled jackpot slot games that often share multi-million-pound prize pools. One of these four jackpot slots – Mega Fortune - is listed in the Guinness World Records for creating a record-breaking payout of €17.86m.

However, even NetEnt's non-progressive slots (many of which can be played on mobile devices) often boast generous top jackpots such as Big Bang (268,032 coins), Fisticuffs (100,000 coins), Tornado Farm Escape (167,000 coins), and Jack Hammer 2 (990,000 coins).

Appearance and Sound Effects

The base game of The Invisible Man is set in Griffin's laboratory where vials of strange potions bubble over heaters and other bottles of liquid lie scattered across the scientist's desk. The dramatic orchestral soundtrack intensifies the mysterious plot, and there are also sound effects of ingredients being stirred and poured.

On the reels, you'll see many of the central characters that feature in H.G. Wells' "The Invisible Man" novel, including Dr. Kemp (a fellow scientist who is approached by Griffin for help, but betrays him to the police), George Hall and Mrs. Hall who own the Lion's Head Inn at which Griffin temporarily stays, Griffin, the Policeman, Dr. Cranley (Griffin's mentor) and his wife Flora, plus five playing card symbols.

Bonuses and Special Features

The Invisible Man is brimming with special features, as well as a pay structure that allows you to create wins both ways across the reels.

For starters, there are two wild symbols –the Policeman and Griffin. Police Wilds can only appear on Reel 1 and Griffin Wilds can only appear on Reel 5 in the base game while both wilds can appear on all five reels in the Free Spins Bonus, and both wilds can substitute for all other symbols in The Invisible Man slot.

In addition, both wilds automatically trigger the Walking Wilds Feature whenever they appear on the screen. Police Wilds move one reel to the right while awarding one re-spin until they disappear from view, and Griffin Wilds move one reel to the left while awarding one re-spin until they disappear from view. But, if a Griffin Wild and a Police Wild collide during the re-spin process, the symbols merge and initiate the Free Spins Bonus.

The Free Spins Bonus gives you ten free spins, during which, the aim is to fill either the Police Spins or Griffin's Rage meter that sits above the reels. One bar on the meter is filled each time one of the wild symbols appears on the screen. And, if the Walking Wilds collide, you earn another four free spins.

If you succeed in filling either bonus meter, you get to play the respective bonus game once your free spins are complete. The Police Spins Bonus awards three free spins and on each spin, a policeman fires five wild symbols at random onto the reels.

The Griffin's Rage Bonus takes you to three separate locations (Ipping Station, The Mansion, and the Lion's Head Inn) where you get to play a pick-me game. As you click each of the five objects in each location, you'll reveal coin wins, increased multipliers of up to x4, or a policeman's helmet, and ideally, you want to pick the policeman's helmet last as it brings the bonus to an end. Once you've completed all three pick-me games, all of the coin wins you've collected in the three locations are multiplied by the final multiplier amount.

Paylines/Reels

The Invisible Man uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty fixed paylines, and boasts a high RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.10%. The game lets you create winning combos using matching symbols in succession from both left to right and right to left.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.

Our Verdict

With its compelling storyline, vivid animations, and thrilling gameplay, The Invisible Man is one of most playable NetEnt slots you'll ever encounter.
