Head deep into cowboy country in Wild Wild Chest, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Red Tiger Gaming. The chief attractions in this dusty town are the Lucky Chests which can deliver instant wins, lucky re-spins, reel swaps and random tiles. Also on offer are free spins with stacked wilds. Stakes range from between 20p and £500 per spin.
Red Tiger Gaming usually put plenty of effort into the design of their slots and Wild Wild Chest lives up to expectations. A classic western ‘one horse town’ forms the backdrop to the reels. Flanked by wanted posters and bottles of liquor, the reels include A to 10 playing cards, gloves and lasso, cowboy boots with spurs, Stetson and a pair of pistols. A trio of saloon bar gals act as the game’s wild – 5 wilds on a payline awards a 1,000 coin payout.
There are a couple of other symbols to keep a special eye on. Appearing more regularly of the 2 is the Lucky Chest – whenever this golden box lands, you’ll be awarded 1 of 4 special mini extras:
- Instant Win – this does exactly what you’d expect, awarding an immediate cash prize.
- Lucky Respin – you’ll be awarded a single re-spin.
- Swap Reels – the reels will shift horizontally to create a new winning combination.
- Random Tiles – tiles are transformed into the same symbol to create a potentially big winner.
It’s possible to land more than 1 treasure chest on the same spin which offers multiple prizes.
Much harder to come by is the other feature, the Free Spins feature, which is triggered by landing the Free Spins symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. The wild women from the base game are in play during the feature too, only this time they can land fully stacked and fill whole reels.
Like many Red Tiger Gaming slots, the Free Spins feature is incredibly difficult to come by. Unlike many of this developer’s slots, there is plenty of action on offer in between the free spins though. The Lucky Chests hit regularly and deliver a steady stream of lower level wins. We’d put the variance in the medium range.
Featuring some top-notch design and a decent range of features, there’s much to like in Wild Wild Chest. The mini features keep the pace high in the base game and if you do get lucky enough to land the free spins, the wins can be wild indeed. If you like the theme, I recommend you try NetEnt’s Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist.
