One look at the female star of this slot with software by Novomatic and she certainly looks like a wild thing. Don’t spend too long looking at the gorgeous woman because there’s top work to be done in this entertaining slot with some big wins to be won in this jungle.
We’re deep in the jungle for this online slot and the first thing you will notice is that there are four reels in ‘Wild Thing.’ On its three rows of symbols there are a total of ten paylines and they are a fixed number. You do need to decide how much you are going to gamble on each spin of the reels. The minimum amount that can be spent on one game is just 0.40 but if you have a high-limit you can gamble a maximum of 100. Ensure you wager an amount you can safely afford to lose if the reels go against you.
In the background to the ‘Wild Thing’ video slot we can see the jungle where this game is set but no sign of anything remotely wild. The symbols in the game don’t fit into any jungle theme unless you count wild fruit. There’s the usual suspects of grapes, plums, oranges, and watermelons. Then there’s the bell, a red 7 and a blue star.
All symbols those of you who play classic slots will be used to seeing. The paylines in this jungle themed slot are a little bit different. They are split into two even groups with the first covering the three reels starting from the left. The other group covers the second to fourth reels and pay from right to left.
The wild symbol isn’t the most unique design you will ever see when playing at online casinos. It’s simply the word WILD in red on a yellow background with some claw marks on it. This can substitute for other symbols to help get you some winning combinations. When it appears on either the third or fourth reels, it will stay there for the next spin and that sticky wild increases chances of wins. It’s unable to replace the scatter symbol which is the gorgeous woman. Take one look at her in the paytable to get your heart beating faster. With that short black skirt and cleavage, she looks more at home down the pub than the jungle, hope she’s not wearing heels.
To trigger the free spins bonus round you need to get three or four of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Just how many free games you receive depends on how many scatters trigger the bonus. If it’s three then you receive ten free spins, four doubles that to 20. The chances of getting wins are increased by the wild symbols on the fourth reel becoming sticky wilds. It’s possible for the punter to re-trigger the free spins if those scatters appear in triplicate again. In fact, this game gives you the chance to keep re-triggering the free spins with a maximum of 300 available if your luck is in. If you do get 300 it’s probably an idea to go out and buy a lottery ticket too as you are one lucky player.
There’s also a gamble feature in this busy online slot. This appears after a winning combination in the base game. Not at all compulsory but if you do go for it, the task is to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card. Do that and you double your cash out but a wrong guess loses you all your win, so be careful with this.
The ‘Wild Thing’ slot game has a fair bit happening so don’t start playing this with real cash without a bit of research. All you need to do is have some free Wild Thing slot games to see how everything works. Then access that paytable to read about the rules of the game and how much each of the winning combinations pay out, for example four red 7’s can win you 4000 coins.
There aren’t that many four-reel slot games out there but there are a few that are similar in gameplay to ‘Wild Thing.’ There’s the ‘Candy Bars’ slot from IGT which also has a wild symbol and just the four reels but includes a progressive jackpot for players to try and win. Also try out the game ‘Joker Casino’ which also has software by Novomatic and this four-reel game has a wild symbol with reels full of fruit and a special mystery prize awarded rather than free spins.
A great looking game that perhaps should use a bit more of the wild beauty as she really is a welcome sight. It’s strange to see a four-reel game so this is a bit of a change. The big wins obviously come in the free spins round, aside from that is high variance so you must be patient for the big wins to come along. The wild can certainly help boost your account balance and if you can keep re-triggering the free spins you’ll love playing ‘Wild Thing.’
