Mid-Life Crisis Slot Game
Mid Life Crisis is an RTG progressive jackpot slot with 2 bonus features and a $900k in a progressive jackpot. With a fixed wager of 0.25 coin size and a max bet of 45 coins this is not the typical penny slot, the max bet is required to win the progressive jackpot. 5 reel with 9 lines online slot with no Wild symbol or scatter makes it a very risky game to play for most people, the only reason to do is to win big the jackpot. But God, is it expensive! Aside from jackpot there are a couple of high paying lines and two bonus features. One might not even be considered a bonus round as it does not activate anything, but pays instantly and frequently. The other is a pick and win, and although not super payable, it is still a large sum. One of the biggest lay downs is the lack of a Wild in this game.
The theme is kind of funny representing symbols from a middle age crisis, recognize your parents? Dad is buying expensive stuff that he was always so reluctant to buy, and apparently wants to feel young once more. Blue pills? Not sure if this is a reference to drugs on the game.
The progressive jackpot is normally seen around the size of $100k to 900k. To activate a player must bet the maximum amount of 45 coins or $11.25 and get all 5 sports car symbols on a payline. Not an easy feat, and goes against most RTG games that do not require the max bet to win the jackpot.

Aside from wining the progressive jackpot or winning 5 lines, there is another way to win big. If your get the scatter on reels, 3 and 5 (the sexy woman) you will activate a "Pick n Win" bonus feature called Poison Bonus.
During pick and win bonuses the player is presented with 12 symbols or the Youth Potion. If you select the Youth Potion you will gain an instant win, but small. If you continue by selecting any of the 12 symbols you might win a cash prize of any size, a very small size or fail the bonus round. The highest bonus you could win is 4,000 coins.
There is a second bonus feature called "Mid Life Man Bonus". To trigger this one you will need a chain, man and wig on reels 2, 3 and 4. There is no extra round, the player instantly gets paid 350 coins. This bonus feature triggers quite frequently.
Why is Mid Life Crisis so Popular?
This is a popular online slot because it is one of the largest online slots from RTG. The betting range is large, so be wary. Still, it is like playing the lottery, but a very expensive one that will not even make you a million.
