Wild Games Slot Review
Wild Games is a 5 reel 25 payline video slot powered by Playtech – it’s the animal kingdom’s answer to the Olympics so to speak. Anyway, it has 4 bonus features in total and can be played from 25p a spin to massive £500 a spin. Graphics, animations and sounds are brilliant (to be expected from Playtech!).
There’s the Win A Media Bonus feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more medal bonus symbols of the same colour – i.e. you need to get 3 gold, silver or bronze medal symbols. This is a classic ‘pick me’ style feature as you pick 1 of the medals which rewards you with a cash prize – simple. Bronze medals with give you between 2 and 40 times your stake and silver medals will give you between 3 and 70 times your stake. Gold medals are the most rewarding as you will receive between 4 and 100 times your stake.
In the base game, you will notice there are stacked wild symbols that will trigger the remaining 3 bonus features – they feature the Cheetah, Hippo and Bulldog. When they appear stacked on the middle reel, they will trigger their own bonus feature.
The cheetah will trigger the 100m Dash Bonus feature – choose 1 of the 3 cheetahs to run the race. You will get 8 free spins but can earn extra features depending on where your cheetah finishes. If you got a gold medal, it will become an extra expanding wild! A silver medal makes the silver medal symbol an extra wild as well as clone 1 more wild on the reel. A bronze medal makes all bronze medals wild.
The bulldog will activate the Freestyle Swim Bonus feature – choose 1 of the bulldogs to receive a gold, silver or bronze medal. You start off with 8 free spins but getting a bronze give you an extra 2 free spins. Silver will reward you with an extra 3 free spins and a gold medal with give you an extra 4 free spins. You can also retrigger more free spins during the feature with up to 200 free spins on offer.
The hippo activates the Balance Beam Bonus feature – again choose 1 of the 3 hippos that will perform a balance beam routine. You will receive 8 free spins with the hippos then performing to give you a multiplier value. You will get either a 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x or 10x multiplier! This is by far the best free spins feature.
Wild Games is a good slot game and entertaining – the real big wins will come from either the Freestyle Swim Bonus feature or the Balance Beam Bonus feature with the latter being decent if you are lucky. Playtech has produced better slots though in my opinion so check out Gladiator (based on the iconic movie) or the Marvel titles.
