Experience the open expanses of the African bush in Wild Gambler, a safari themed slot from Ash Gaming. Packed full of wild animals, this 5 reel, 20 payline slot comes with free spins and the option to lock wilds and spin. Explore the savannah from between 20p and £200 per spin.

The main feature on offer in Wild Gambler is the Lock and Spin option. This allows you to lock wilds (the lion) so they remain in place for the following spin. You have to pay for the privilege of boosting your winning opportunities though. How much you have to add to the spin depends on where the wilds are on the reels.

If the wilds are nicely positioned, the cost can really increase but you'll see a warning message asking whether you want to go ahead. If more wilds appear alongside the ones you locked already the cost of the next spin will rise accordingly. Find 5 wilds in a single payline and you'll win a payout of 2,000 your stake. You can also autotlock wilds or play at a specific stake of your choosing which will automatically save the correct number of wilds.

Wild Gambler also comes with a Free Games feature which is triggered when 5 meerkats appear anywhere on the reels - you'll be awarded 8 free spins. That's not all as any wilds on the reels during the triggering spin will be locked in place. Any wilds that hit during the feature will also be automatically locked and remain in place for the duration of the bonus round.

The look and sound of Wild Gambler is very good - the brightly coloured cartoon-style wild animals are nice and sharp and are perfectly clear. The playing card symbols have all had an animal print makeover too. The action is all complemented by assorted animal noises.

And the gameplay? It takes a while to get the hang of Wild Gambler. The Lock and Spin can be rewarding but at a price. The overall variance is in the medium range. As its name suggests, Wild Gambler is all about those locked wilds and how much you're prepared to pay for them. Due to the popularity of the game, Ash Gaming have since released Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure which is worth a look. If you like safari themes, Raging Rhino by WMS is very good and highly volatile.
