Wild at Heart is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot powered by Novomatic that can be played from 40p to £50 a spin across all devices. With a love theme, it offers a wild that pays 250 times your stake for 5 on a payline as well as a Free Games with Hearts feature where you will get 15 free spins with a multiplier that can reach 15x!
Visually, Wild at Heart looks like a cheesy heart tattoo found on a biker’s arm! Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards, purple roses, snakes wrapped around swords (yes, odd) and diamonds. The shimmering tiger is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the Heart scatter and Bonus Heart – it’s also the lucrative symbol giving you 5, 25 or 250 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.
Wild at Heart is all about the Free Games with Hearts feature which is played when you get 3 or more Heart scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously – you are rewarded with 15 free spins but then you need to pick from 5 game modes. You need to decide whether you want to try and collect 3, 5, 7, 10 or 15 Bonus Heart symbols during the feature.
During the feature, Bonus Hearts will appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 only – if you chose the 3 option and collected 3 during the feature, your winnings from the feature will be subject to a 3x multiplier. The 5, 7, 10 and 15 options would give you a 5x, 7x, 10x and 15x multiplier respectively.
Wild at Heart is definitely unique – it’s up to you whether you want to take your chance with love to collect more Bonus Heart symbols to get a bigger multiplier. I personally would opt for trying to get 10 or 15 Bonus Hearts in order to get the bigger 10x or 15x multipliers.
I found the game to be medium to high variance with maximum wins of 500 times your stake on each spin. The bigger wins will undoubtedly come in the feature with the bigger multipliers but it may be easier to get a 3x or 5x multiplier – it’s up to you really.
It may not be the best graphically but the potential 15x multiplier in the feature makes it worth a chance. If you like the love theme, I recommend you try the similarly-themed Cherry Love from Playtech.
