Wonder Woman Gold is powered by Bally Technologies and is 5 reel, 40 payline jackpot slot. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 40p to £200 per spin, the game is based on the world’s most powerful woman who’s aim is to deliver superhero-sized wins.
The game features action scenes and the iconic music from the original television series which starred Lynda Carter. Full of colour and with a pop art appearance, it features all the characters for the TV series. When it comes to bonus features, there are 5 to benefit from.
Firstly, there’s the Mystery Stacks feature – the base game has stacked mystery symbol positions that are replaced with 1 randomly chosen symbol before each spin starts. The mystery symbols positions can be replaced with any symbol except the wild, free game, Mini Jackpot, Major Jackpot and Mega Jackpot symbols.
Then there’s the Expanding Wild feature where you punch your way to big wins with Wonder Woman fighting your corner. Wild symbols appear on the 3 middle reels – when they show up, they will expand to take over the whole reel. The wild substitutes for all symbols except the free game and jackpot symbols. If you’re lucky, you can benefit from 3 fully wild reels.
You have the Jackpot feature where you can win 1 of 3 available jackpots – Mini, Major and Mega. You can win either jackpot at any stale level but the higher your stake, the greater your chances. The Mini, Major and Mega Jackpot symbols appear on reels 1 and 5 if either both symbols of either jackpot appear on those reels simultaneously, you’ll win that jackpot.
I love the Free Game Bonus feature where you can choose your own volatility. Triggered by getting the Free Game symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5, you will win 1 times your stake and have the choice of 3 free spins scenarios – Diana changes to Wonder Woman on the show she does this where she changes royal symbols into high value ones. The options are as follows:
- You can choose 8 free spins with the Gold Diana symbol replacing 4 low value symbols (A, K, Q & J) on the reels.
- You can choose 16 free spins with the Gold Diana symbol replacing 3 low value symbols (K, Q & J) on the reels.
- You can choose 25 free spins with the Gold Diana symbol replacing 2 low value symbols (Q & J) on the reels.
I personally would opt for 8 free spins with 4 low value symbols become high value Diana Gold symbols – this is the highest variance option with the potential for the biggest rewards. Furthermore, the Expanding Wilds feature is also available on free spins meaning you can benefit from 3 wild reels per free spin!
Finally, you have the Buy A Bonus feature where you can gain direct entry to the Free Game Bonus feature – all you need to do is press the ‘Buy A Bonus’ button – this will cost you though so you need to decide whether you can afford it.
I think Bally Technologies has come up with a winner here – there’s plenty of bonus features to take advantage of with the Expanding Wilds feature being the key to winning big. If you get expanding wilds in the Free Game Bonus feature, you can win really big, especially if Diana Gold symbols replace up to 4 low value ones. I consider the variance to be somewhere in the middle with balanced payouts throughout. Only 1 question remains to be answered though – are you ready for the magic that Wonder Woman can deliver?
