Wild Thing is a 4 reel, 10 payline slot powered by Novomatic that is playable from 40p to £50 per spin across all compatible devices. You are taken to the jungle where the wild beauty hunts for wins amongst the thick undergrowth – there’s plenty of wins to be had with up to 300 free spins on offer!
Visually, Wild Thing is typical of a Novomatic slot – set deep in the dark jungle, it has cartoon style graphics with symbols on the reels including classic fruit machine symbols such as bells, oranges, plums, red 7s, watermelons and grapes. The blue star is the most lucrative gives you 100 times your stake for 4 on a payline. The soundtrack is like a classic fruity.
In terms of winning combinations, paylines 1 to 5 cover the left-most 3 reels and pay from left to right. Paylines 6 to 10 cover the right-most 3 reels and pay right to left. You can also form wins across the 3 rows for 4-of-a-kind wins.
The wild symbol, which is represented by some animal claws, substitutes for all symbols except the scatter the right-most reel (reel 4) contains a cluster of 3 wilds – when you get that fully, reel 4 is locked and held for a second chance to form winning combinations.
There is also a Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or 4 wild beauty scatter symbols – 3 gives you 10 free spins whilst 4 gives you 20 free spins. During the feature, the cluster of 3 wilds on reel 4 is locked in place throughout. Furthermore, you can retrigger the feature various times with a whopping 300 free spins in total to be won – all with the locked cluster of 3 wilds.
Wild Thing may not be a thing of beauty but it has the potential to pay out very handsomely due to the locked wild cluster in the Free Games feature – I found it to be a high variance game so you need to be patient. If you’re looking for jungle adventure, Microgaming’s Jungle Jim El Dorado is worth playing.
