This may be another of the Novomatic slot games that has a special look to it. That’s because there’s not one but two sets of reels in ‘Simply Wild’ and it makes for not just an interesting slot but a highly profitable one too if luck is on your side and those winning combinations start to come your way.
The first big surprise with the Simply Wild video slot is its two set of reels. The symbols are of a fruity flavour. We get to see oranges, plums, pears, and gold bells that are the lower paying symbols in ‘Simply Wild.’ Then there’s the raspberries, watermelons, grapes and lucky red 7s which pay a bit more if you can get winning combinations out of them. This slot also has a wild symbol and that’s the blue stars. They can substitute for other symbols in the game to help get you winning combinations but only appear on the first set of reels.
Another homage to the classic slots is that the paytable is shown on the main screen. Most games these days see that on a second screen. Not so here as all the information about the game and the value of the winning combinations is all on the main screen and Novomatic haven’t quite managed to achieve doing all of this without giving the screen a cluttered look.
By now you will be wondering just how this game operates with those two sets of reels. What is noticeable is the fact that they both have a different number of rows and reels. The set at the top of the screen is one that falls in the middle. Not three or five reels but four and there are three rows of symbols. The other set of reels down towards the bottom of the screen is more in the style of the old pokies with three reels and three rows of symbols.
The total amount of pay-lines in this online slot that is mobile optimised is ten and that’s a fixed amount. The minimum cost of playing this game is 0.40 and the maximum 100 which is fine if you are a high roller. Ensure that you make wagers that you can afford to lose if all doesn’t go well. ‘Simply Wild’ also contains an autoplay feature that can see 100 automated spins being set into action. You can stop them at any time which is handy if you have a bad run or more hopefully get a big win you wish to defend.
The big difference with the top set of reels is that there’s just one pay-line which is what players were used to in days gone by. That set also has the Crown which is the mystery symbol in ‘Simply Wild.’ Beside the lower set of reels there’s a grid and the Crown symbols will accumulate there being lit up each time one appears on those reels. A prize will be awarded depending on the number of Crown symbols that are collected. There’s also another function in this game that will have some gamblers thinking of the old one armed bandits. The hold button is back and as you can guess from its title, you can hold one or two of the reels for the next spin and hope that you will get a winning combination next time those reels are spun.
There’s also a gamble feature in ‘Simply Wild’ but it’s slightly different from the ones that games with software by Novomatic usually have. Most times it’s the playing cards or a set of steps, but here it’s a toss of the coin. A correct guess on whether it’ll be heads or tails decides whether the win you have just had is doubled. If you get it wrong – and remember there’s a 50 per cent chance you will lose.
It’s important that you do look at this game’s paytable. It’s vital that you fully understand the rules to the game and see how much each of the winning combinations pay out. Also have some free ‘Simply Wild’ slot games in order to see how this all works with the two sets of reels, Crown symbols and gamble feature, all perfect preparation before you start to play for real money.
Not many other games have two sets of reels but they do exist. For example, try out the wonderfully named ‘Ugga Bugga’ which comes from Playtech. That also has multiple sets of reels and like this slot, a high RTP. There’s also the Novomatic slot ‘Power Joker’ which has two sets of reels, lots of fruit symbols and offers its players a SuperMeter feature that can bring some big wins.
The cluttered look to the screen ruins ‘Simply Wild’ a bit and it’s not the easiest of games to understand despite few bonus games. There are better games out there but if you fancy playing a game that has two sets of reels just to be different, then this is one you should try out, but be careful as ever with the gamble feature and try to keep wins safe.
