Push Gaming has taken the classic fruit machine and given it a fluorescent makeover to create Wild Neon. Played using a 5 reel, 25 payline game engine, this nicely designed game comes with linked wild as well as a free spins round with extra wilds, multipliers and instant win modifiers. Play from between 25p and £100 per spin.
A futuristic Vegas Strip, filled with hotels and casinos, forms the backdrop to the reels in Wild Neon. Pastel shades dominate the symbols which include neon versions of hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades, stars, lemons, cherries, bells and 7s. The most rewarding of the standard symbols is the diamond. Landing 5 of these on a payline awards 20 times your total stake.
That same reward is on offer if you manage to hit a 5-symbol wild combination – the gold wild replaces everything with the exception of the bonus inducing scatter. Wild Neon comes with 2 main features which are described below:
Linking Wilds feature – if you land more than 1 wild symbol on the same spin, the symbols that lie in between the 2 wilds will become wild too. For example, if wilds hit on reels 1 and 5 of the middle row, the symbols in reels 2, 3 and 4 on the middle row will become wild too. A new payout is made with these extra, and potentially very rewarding, wilds in place.
Bonus Board Free Spins feature – to trigger this, you’ll need to land the Bonus scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. You’ll be awarded an initial tally of 5 free spins but you can add to your haul with some modifier extras. Pick from the 6 panels shown to reveal a 2x multiplier which doubles all payouts, 5 extra free spins, instant win cash prizes or up to 5 extra wild symbols which added to the reels on each free spin.
The Linking Wilds feature hit pretty regularly with the free spins are somewhat harder to come by. Both can offer decent rewards, especially the latter if you manage to pick up a healthy range of modifier extras.
It may not quite have the visual wow factor that’s on offer from the similarly themed Neon Life by Playtech but Wild Neon is still pretty easy on the eye. The features are solid too. The linked wilds keep things bubbling along nicely in the base game with the extra goodies on offer in the bonus feature offering plenty of potential. If you’re after a virtual slice of Vegas, Wild Neon fits the bill rather nicely.
