One of the new slots we’re really looking forward to giving a spin this autumn is Wild Bazaar and Net Entertainment has given us a taster of what we can expect from this trip to the souk after releasing a YouTube preview.
First impressions in this 5 reel, 26 (yes, you read that right, there are 26 paylines) are good. NetEnt slots are usually easy on the senses and Wild Bazaar is typically well designed. The setting is a Middle Eastern street market with the reels set within a wooden stall.
You’ll see 4 lower value jewellery symbols on the reels alongside 4 higher value treasure chests. These higher payers all offer the same payout which tops 7.5 times your stake if you land 5 on the same payline. The gameplay here looks a little unusual. You’ll notice we haven’t mentioned anything about scatters. There aren’t any. The bonus features are triggered by landing a winner made up of the higher value treasure chests.
You’ll then be awarded 3, 4 or 5 respins depending on whether you landed a winner made up of 3, 4 or 5 symbols. A wild modifier is in play during the respins too. Which one you get depends on the colour of the treasure chest on the triggering spin.
Goodies on offer here include 4-high stacked wilds that can appear on all 5 reels, colossal 2×2 wilds, linked wilds that form a chain between the leftmost and rightmost wild and a wild multiplier that doubles the payout whenever it forms part of a winning combination.
We’ve seen all these wild extras in other slots but not packaged together. Combined they deliver plenty of action and more than make up for any lack of a traditional Free Spins feature. The high spec visuals we’ve come to expect from NetEnt is present and correct in Wild Bazaar and the Arabian-style backing track conjures up the atmosphere of the souk rather nicely.
Put all that together and Wild Bazaar looks like being a very playable slot. It’s set to hit the online casino shelves on the 24th of October 2018). In the meantime, check out the YouTube trailer below:
