Wild Dodo is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from NextGen Gaming and Side City Studios. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, this dodo inspired offering benefits from re-spins with a stacked Wild Dodo and a free spins feature where you can get up to 40 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
Set in Mauritius, Wild Dodo looks fantastic and takes you a beautiful, idyllic beach with a dodo to the left-hand side of the reel set. With a traditional Mauritian Sega soundtrack playing as you spin the reels, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J playing cards as well as brightly-coloured flowers, coconuts, tropical fish, panther chameleons, dodos and turtles.
There’s also a purple dodo which is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols bar the scatter – it rewards you with 0.5, 10, 100 or 500 times your total stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 across a payline. The Wild Dodo is key to triggering the Wild Dodo Re-Spins feature as this is played when the Wild Dodo appears on the middle reel. You are then rewarded with 3 re-spins with the Wild Dodo stacked on reel 3 throughout.
Wild Dodo also comes with a Dodo’s Nest Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 Nest scatters on the 3 middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4). Once triggered, you will choose eggs until you’ve matched 3 identical prizes – here’s what you can win:
- 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier
- 7 free spins with a 2x multiplier
- 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier
- 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier
- 20 free spins with a 3x multiplier
If you land 3 scatters during the feature, you will retrigger the feature which potentially gives you 40 free spins with a 3x multiplier. The only downside is that the Wild Dodo Re-Spins feature doesn’t apply.
Overall, Wild Dodo is a colourful and fun slot which offers good rewards in both the base game (due to the Wild Dodo Re-Spins feature) and the Dodo’s Nest Free Games feature. I found it to be a medium variance offering and one I think will prove popular – if you like slots based on birds, I suggest you try Thunderkick’s Birds On A Wire.
