Venture deep into the jungle of Mexico in Rich n Wild, a 5 reel, 30 payline slot from Ainsworth. The highlight of this rainforest adventure is the bonus feature that awards up to 15 free spins. You could also end up with sticky wilds if you manage to hit the Rich n Wild feature within those free spins. Stakes range from 30p to £3,000 per spin.
Ainsworth slots are rarely very flash on the design front and that’s true of Rich N Wild – the visuals here are functional rather than beautiful. Joining the A to 9 playing cards are brightly coloured birds, flowers, owls, panthers and monkeys. Land 5 of the red-nosed monkey in the base game for a 200-coin payout.
Helping to create the winning those winners is the Chichen Itza pyramid which is the wild – it replaces everything apart from the tribal shield which is the scatter.
Land 3 or more of the shield on the same spin to trigger the game’s Free Games feature – 3, 4 or 5 shields on the same spin will get you an award equal to 2, 10 or 100 times your total stake as well as 12 free spins. A new symbol, Rich n Wild, is added during the feature.
When these hit on reels 1 and 5 on the same free spin, you’ll trigger the Rich n Wild feature – once active, any wild symbols that land on the middle 3 reels will become sticky wilds for the remainder of your free spins.
The scatter shield also appears on reels 1 and 5 only during the feature – 3 free spins are added to your total every time you land 2 scatters on the same spin. A new paytable is used for the free spins round.
Rich n Wild is a typical Ainsworth slot – the design is pretty primitive and the range of bonus features is limited. The only extra on offer her is the free spins round. It’s solid enough, especially if you manage to get the sticky wilds, but nothing we haven’t seen many times before.
If you’re looking for fresh design and innovative extras, you won’t find them in Rich n Wild. This is a game for Ainsworth fans only. If you want to head to the jungle, NetEnt’s Jungle Sprit: Call of the Wild or Playtech’s Jungle Giants are worth trying.
