Hope to conjure up 30,000 x stake wins courtesy of the Wild Harlequin slot. Created by Quickspin, it’s a 5 reel, 10 payline game that comes with the developer’s usual high spec design and some very decent extras. Land a Harlequin Wild and it expands to fill the whole of that reel. Trigger the Free Spins feature by landing 3/4 Harlequin Wilds on the same spin. You’ll then receive 10 free spins. The triggering reels turn into Magic Reels which bring increasing multipliers into play. Find out more in our in-depth Wild Harlequin review.

There’s a simple, understated feel to the design of the Wild Harlequin slot. With a classic feel, there’s a high spec look to the imagery. Set in a travelling circus, you join a talented magician who owns the stage. As usual for a Quickspin release, it’s simple but very classy.

There’s a jazzy style soundtrack playing in the background while you spin. Overall, it works rather well.  The main character (the Harlequin) looks a little like Harley Quinn from the DC Comics movies (played by Margot Robbie).

The plain white reels are made up of lower value playing card suit symbols. They’re joined by more rewarding sapphire, emerald, ruby and diamond symbols. The diamond is the top standard symbol, paying 7.5 x your total stake if you land 5 across a payline.

The Harlequin, wearing a long red, black and gold dress, is the wild. She can land on all 5 reels and substitute for all 5 symbols. The Harlequin Wild nudges to fill the whole of its reel each time it appears. Land 3, 4 or 5 Harlequins on a payline for a payout of 2, 4 or 10 x your total stake. Here’s a list of all symbols with payouts:

Symbol Payouts/Info

Wild Harlequin Mobile

Producing with the latest HTML5 technology, Wild Harlequin is available to play on all devices including desktop, tablet and mobile. The simple, elegant design and straightforward gameplay make the Wild Harlequin mobile slot a good one to play.

Wild Harlequin Bonus Features

With 3 bonus features, stacked wilds are central to much of the best action in the Wild Harlequin slot. As well as being potentially lucrative in their own right, they can also trigger free spins which also brings increasing multipliers into the mix.

Nudging Harlequin Wild feature

Whenever a Wild Harlequin symbol lands, the Nudging Harlequin Wild feature comes into play. The Wild Harlequin nudges up or down to turn the whole of that reel wild. Rewarding you with wild reels essentially, you can benefit from 5 fully wild reels. If you achieve this, you’ll pocket 100 x your total stake.

Free Spins feature

wild-harlequin-slot-free-spins-feature

Land 3 or more Harlequin Wilds on the same spin and you’ll activate the Free Spins feature. After a payout has been made, you’ll go on to play 10 free spins.

The reels that contained the triggering Harlequin Wilds will transform into Magic Reels. Each Magic Reel starts with a 2x multiplier active. Each time a new Harlequin Wild lands on a Magic Reel, the value of that multiplier increases by 1.

Land a winner that includes symbols on more than 1 Magic Reel and the value of the multipliers is combined to deliver an even bigger payout boost. For example, say you had Magic Reels with multipliers of 2x, 3x and 4x. Land a winner that included symbols on all those reels and the payout would rocket to the tune of 24x!

Whenever a Magic Reel multiplier reaches a multiple of 5 (for example, 5x, 10x, 15x etc), another 2 free spins are added to your total. This can lead to huge wins and payouts of up to 30,000 x stake per free spin.

Buy feature

In some territories (but not currently in the UK), players will have the chance to buy the Free Spins feature. There are 2 options which give you 3 or 4 Wild Harlequins and an increased RTP rate:

Price Free Spins Magic Reels RTP %
80 x stake 10 3 96.5%
200 x stake 10 4 96.76%

Originality








There’s nothing overly complicated about the gameplay in the Wild Harlequin slot. The nudging wilds can deliver some decent action though, but not in the base game.

This game is all about the Free Spins feature due to the Magic Reels multipliers. They key to winning big is to land Harlequin Wilds on Magic Reels to increase the multipliers.

With 30,000 x stake max wins per free spin, Wild Harlequin is an all or nothing kind of slot as the base game is rather weak with max wins of just 100 x stake for a screen full of the highest value symbol.

As we’ve come to expect from a Quickspin release, the design is first-class too. Put that together and you have a simple but very playable release. Want more multipliers? Guardian of Athens (also by Quickspin) offers them and can reach up to 1,680x in the free spins.

If you want to see the Harley Quinn character this game is based on in action, you can try Playtech’s official Suicide Squad slot which comes with 4 progressive jackpots.

Pros
  • 30,000 x stake max wins
  • Multiplying multipliers in the free spins
  • Classy design + animations
Cons
  • Very high variance
