Originally launched for the 2012 London Olympics, Wild Games video slot by Playtech is a fun-filled affair with 3 wild animals taking part in their very own version of the Olympic games. You will have plenty of opportunities to battle it out in various games to see who ends up in the No.1 position on the podium.
Wild Games by Playtech is a 5-reel video slot. It has 3 rows and a maximum of 25 pay lines. These are not fixed which means you can alter how many you want to be active for any individual spin. As with many Playtech Slots you have a wild symbol that can replace all other symbols except any medal symbol. You also have a ‘Win a Medal’ bonus mini-game and then 3 main events which can earn you free spins with either unique wilds, extra free games or increased multipliers. Wild Games offers a top prize of 3,000 coins in the base game, however, you can achieve a 10x multiplier in a bonus round.
How to play Wild Games Video Slot
When launching the game you will be treated to a short animated video as an introduction the games and the Wild Animals that will be taking part. This is where only the toughest, wildest and fittest of the animal athletes will gather to compete to win it all, or so we are told. This video is quite fun and worth watching at least once.
Here we have a very bright, colourful and modern looking slot game. The backdrop is a mix of shiny looking blue and gold and the buttons have a 3D blocky look about them. The graphics are fun and quirky and the game has an overall feel of high-quality.
The game does make use of some standard card type symbols, these being 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. These form the lower value symbols for the game. You then have a basketball going through a hoop, a football and the three main characters which are a Hippo, a Cheetah and a Bulldog. There are Bronze, Silver and Gold medals which can launch the Win a Medal Bonus feature and finally a Golden Cup as the Wild symbol.
You can set your cost per spin for Wild Games online slot with the line bet button. You can set values from 1p all the way up to £10 per bet line. You can then adjust the number of active pay lines from 1 up to 25. Both settings combined will affect your total cost per spin. E.g. 25 bet lines at 5p per line will cost £1.25 per spin.
Use the red ‘Spin’ button to start playing Wild Games. You may wish to use ‘Auto Play’ to play 10, 25, 50 or 99 automated spins. There is also a Bet Max button which will spin the reels at your current coin value per line multiplied by all 25 pay lines.
The base game is about matching symbols on an active pay line to create a cash win and this can include the wild symbol. You will also be looking to land any 3 of the same coloured medals, whether that be the bronze, silver or gold. If you manage to land three of these then the game will freeze and highlight your medals. You simply get to pick one of the medals on screen and it will reveal a cash prize. The silver medals offer a higher prize to the bronze, whilst the gold medal offers the biggest rewards of all three.
The main feature of the Wild Games slot is the chance to win a free games bonus round via three sporting events. These are triggered by landing a character as a stacked wild on the middle reel. The three events are as follows:
The Freestyle Swim Bonus is triggered by landing a stacked bulldog symbol. You will then get to choose one of 3 bulldogs to compete in a freestyle swimming race. Coming 1st, 2nd or 3rd will see you winning a gold, silver or bronze medal. You are then awarded 8 free spins and the medal you won appears on the reels as an extra symbol. Land that medal and depending on its colour you will get 2, 3 or 4 more free spins.
The 100M Dash Bonus is fairly similar to the Freestyle Swim Bonus game but this time, you select from three cheetahs. Again you will receive 8 free spins but this time, a gold medal becomes wild and turns into an expanding wild, a silver medal becomes wild and randomly clones one more wild on the same reel. Finally, a bronze medal simply becomes an extra wild.
The third and final bonus feature is the Balance Beam Bonus. Here you choose one of three gymnastic routines and you will win a multiplier of between 6x and 10x. As with all of these features, once your free spins are complete you will return to the base game.
