Wild Rain is an Asian-themed slot from Core Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine, it comes with 6 base game modifiers as well as a free spins round where wilds drop down the reels on each spin. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The colourful, cartoon reels are nicely done. With traditional buildings and blossom trees in the background it paints a gentle, rural picture. On the reels you’ll see lower value royal values alongside fans, lotus flowers and yin and yang symbols. The top payer is the dragon which pays 25 times your total stake if you manage to land 5 across a payline.

The raindrop is the wild. It replaces all other symbols bar the scatter and offers awards of up to 25 times your total stake. If a wild lands in the top position on a reel, it sticks then moves down 1 row at a time on each subsequent spin. On any spin you could randomly receive 1 of the following modifiers:

  • Lightning Times – if you land a winner then it will receive a multiplier boost
  • Wild Lightning – lightning strikes the reels to create raindrop wilds. These drop down the reels 1 row at a time until they drop off the bottom of the screen
  • Bonus Chance – a Bonus symbol is overlaid onto the reels to increase your chances of triggering the main feature round
  • Hurricane Wild – this mighty wind blows any raindrop wilds to the left of the reels
  • Tornado Wilds – here the wind blows the wilds to the top of the screen. They then drop down 1 reel at a time on each subsequent spin until they drop off the bottom
  • Lightning Bonus – if you land 2 Bonus symbols this could deliver the all-important third

The Free Spins feature is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols on the same spin. You’ll then receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins. You can expect to see plenty of raindrop wilds during this round too. They perform their usual dropping function too. Landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols adds another 5, 10, 15 or 20 free spins to your tally.

There’s a gentle feel to the sound and visuals here. You can expect plenty of action from the modifiers and raindrop wilds. That’s certainly the case in the free spins round where the wilds can really come into their own. The far eastern theme remains a hugely popular one. If you’re a fan then Wild Rain is a game to consider.
