Wild Orient is a Microgaming-powered slot game with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Playable from 25p to £125 a spin, it’s available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. Set in lush green jungle, the game is a tribute to the natural wonders and rarities found in the Asian wilderness as you will encounter tigers, pandas, elephants and monkeys.
There is also a distinct Asian flavour as there’s bamboo on the reels as well as gold accents which add warmth and richness. As for the soundtrack, it’s quite tranquil with string instruments and woodwind sounds. The pace picks up in the Free Spins feature with an upbeat percussion and fast traditional flute music which adds to the excitement.
In the base game, there’s a Respin feature which can be played at the end of any spin – you can choose to respin a reel as many times as you desire with an extra cost being charged. This gives you the chance to respin a certain reel in the hope of completing a winning combination. You can also do this in order to get the 3rd scatter symbol in order to trigger the Free Spins feature.
The Free Spins feature is activated when you get 3 or more elephant scatter symbols anywhere on the reels – you will be granted 15 free spins with all wins subject to a 3x multiplier. There is also the possibility of retriggering the feature with 30 free spins in total available.
I found Wild Orient to be a medium variance slot game with decent wins in the base game and free spins feature. There’s a maximum of 160 times your stake to be won in the base game and a cool 480 times your stake in the Free Spins feature!
Hopefully you’ll enter this untamed natural world and enjoy the rare living animals found in the Wild Orient – it’s a good addition to the Microgaming slots portfolio. If you like slots of this nature (excuse the pun), White King by Playtech is very good. I personally recommend something a little more prehistoric with Microgaming’s Jurassic Park being one of the best out there.
