Lightning Wild is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot which is powered by Novomatic. Playable from 20p to £50 per spin on all devices including laptops, PCs, iOS and Android, it appears to be a classic fruit machine which benefits from a thunderbolt of winning strikes.

Visually, Lightning Wild is set on a purple background which is reminiscent of a stormy night with lightning bolts across the trouble sky. The graphics are typical of what you’d expect from a Novomatic game – basically, they are not as sharp as new slots and resemble a land based game.

Symbols on the reels include cherries, lemons, oranges, melons, blueberries, strawberries, blue 7s, pears and plums. The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and gives you 50 times your stake for 5 on a payline. The most valuable symbol is the star scatter.

3 or more stars will trigger the Free Spins feature – 3 will give you 2 times your stake, 4 will give you 40 times your stake and 5 will give you a cool 500 times your stake! Anyway, 3, 4 or 5 anywhere on the reels will reward you with 15 free spins.

The feature is where a lightning storm of wins awaits you – any wild symbol that appears during the feature will remain locked in position for the duration of the feature. These wilds are known as accumulating wilds. If you get a few wilds early on, prepare yourself for big wins.

That’s about it for Lightning Wild – it’s all about the Free Spins feature where wilds remain sticky basically. A simple slot it may be but the variance is in the medium to high range. If you like sticky wilds in the feature, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Vikings Go Wild is highly recommended. If you want sticky wild reels, WMS’ Black Knight II can’t be beaten.
