Wild Mantra is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Yggdrasil Gaming that can be played on all devices from 10p to £125 per spin. With a spiritual feel, it comes with a Mantra Respins feature where you get respins and nudging wilds to reward you with wild reels. This applies in the Free Spins feature but filling reels with wilds gives you more free spins.
Visually, Wild Mantra is rather beautiful – based on meditation, you will see a mountain range in the backdrop. With the symbols spinning in columns for each reel, symbols include hearts, clubs, spades and clubs as well as 4 different signs. All 4 of them will give you 4 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
The most important symbol is the wild which appears 4 symbols tall – each new wild that lands on the reels will trigger the Mantra Respins feature. If a new wild appears during the respin, all previously landed wilds will nudge 1 position. The wilds continue to nudge with each new wild appearing until the whole reel is fully wild.
Then you have the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3, 4 or 5 free spins scatter symbols in the base game – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 20 or 1,000 times your stake as well as 10 free spins. All wilds present on the reels when activating the feature will be carried over into the free spins.
With 1 extra wild appearing on the reels when the feature starts, all wilds become sticky meaning they remain on the reels. Like with the Mantra Respins feature, each new wild nudges the existing wilds up. If you fill a reel with wilds, you will be rewarded with 1 additional free spin meaning you can benefit from 5 extra free spins in total.
Despite Wild Mantra looking superb and with 2 good bonus features, this is a low variance slot – the most you can win from each spin is 100 times your stake. The likelihood of winning the maximum amount increases in the Free Spins feature due to the wilds being sticky. Actually, the biggest wins comes from the 5 free spins scatters which will give you a 1,000 times stake payout.
For that reason alone, I don’t think Wild Mantra will be the most popular slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. If you like the theme and want bigger potential payouts, Quickspin’s Divine Dreams is highly recommended.
