There’s no such thing as a normal wood or forest in the world of online slots. They all have to be either magical or enchanted and in this case, wild. Here’s another slot release from Novomatic and it presents its player with a bit of nature and at the same time a chance to get some good winning combinations thanks to its wild symbols and bonus games.
This is a five-reel game that has a total of ten paylines on its three rows of nature-themed symbols. You can play for free or try to win some cash prizes. We find ourselves in a bright and breezy woodland and it makes for a colourful game to play. There’s no sign of any pixies or fairies in this online slot. Instead the symbols include conkers, white button mushrooms and violet foxglove flowers.
Those ten paylines are a fixed amount so at least you don’t need to be wasting any time working out how many to activate on each spin of the reels. There is still a need to click on the menu button as you need to set your stake for each game. The minimum cost of playing ‘The Wild Wood’ is just 0.40 which is ok if you have a low-limit. The most you can wager on one single spin is 100. This is a wide range so there shouldn’t be a problem finding a level to play at.
Still thinking of responsible gambling, there’s the Reality Check Interval to fill in before you can start to play ‘The Wild Wood’ video slot. This sees you having to set a time, say ten or twenty minutes (setting too long a time isn’t a good idea) and when that set time is reached, the game stops. You are then shown just how you have been getting on playing the game. Study the figures and then consider whether to stop playing or carry on and hopefully get some more wins.
It’s ‘The Wild Woods’ logo which is the wild symbol in this game. It can substitute for other symbols and that can help get some winning combinations. That’s going to be helping your account balance as any wins that it creates are doubled. It’s not able to replace the night-time scatter symbol as that would be helping you trigger the bonus game. The scatter is one to look out for as five of them appearing anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin will win you 500x your stake. Just four is only worth 20x so if four come along then you will be praying the fifth appears.
When three or more of the scatter symbols make an appearance anywhere on the reels, that triggers the free spins round. You receive a total of 16 free spins which is a decent amount. During those free spins, all scatters will become wild scatters so they do a spot of substitution too, so the 16 free spins can produce a fair few wins if your luck is in. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins if those scatters appear again, just two or more are required so you could end up with 32 free spins to play with.
As well as a free spins round, ‘The Wild Wood’ also has a gamble feature. This gives the punter the chance to double wins earned in the base game. There are five opportunities to double wins by correctly guessing the colour of the next playing card. It all sounds good but one incorrect guess is fatal and all your win is lost. Use this for small wins but never large ones, keep those safe.
There are some other video slot games that have similar gameplay to ‘The Wild Wood.’ You can test out another Novomatic release called ‘Illusionist.’ That has one less pay-line but also offers its players a free spins round and a gamble feature Also try out another ten pay-line slot ‘Red Lady’ also released by Novomatic. That pirate themed slot offers ten free spins, a gamble feature but also has expanding symbols that can earn you some good wins.
This slot can be played on your desktop, mobile and tablet devices. That means you can be playing this anytime you want and anywhere, perhaps even in a wild wood if you can get a signal. Usually the control buttons are all underneath the reels and often make the online slot look like a fruit machine. Not here though as the control buttons are situated halfway down the right-hand side of the game. Have some free The Wild Wood slot games before playing for real to get used to how this game works.
A great looking online slot with software by Novomatic that gives players some top chances to earn big cash wins. It’s the free spins round where you can make the best profits thanks to the scatter symbol acting as a wild and the chance to re-trigger the free spins. Be careful with the gamble feature is the usual advice but this is a game that is well worth playing.
