So, let the games begin!
On your marks, get set, spin!
Have you ever imagined what might happen if animals could take part in the Olympic Games? Well, now you don’t have to because this Wild Games slot machine has made dream a reality.
With a host of sporty symbols on the reels, such as a basketball hoop, a football, a range of medals and a trophy, players can really get into the active mood. Competing in the games for glory and fame in the animal kingdom are some wild characters; there is a freestyle swimming bulldog, a 100m dashing cheetah and a hippopotamus on the balancing beam.
Pick up your own medal
This slot machine has so many special gameplay features that we may as well get struck straight into to bonus action. First of all, players should note that the trophy icon acts as the game’s conventional wild symbol, replacing all normal line-paying icons to complete winning combinations.
There are three icons that will not be substituted, however. These are the scattered bronze, silver and gold medal symbols, all of which appear sporadically across the reels. Whenever three of the same coloured medal appear in any reel position, players will be asked to pick one of the medals to reveal a random prize.
Take part in the action
As well as being able pick up bonus prizes during the base game, players can unlock some exciting action with three bonus side games. Each one corresponds to the three different animal athletes since they are triggered when the animal character expands on the middle reel. All three side games will lead to 8 free spins, however, the perks of those free spins must first be decided by taking part in the respective creature’s event:
- Freestyle swim bonus: If players cover the entire third reel with the swimming bulldog then they will be taken to an Olympic pool. Here they must choose one of the three bulldogs competing in the race to win a bronze, silver or gold medal. After the race is finished, 8 free spins will begin and the medal won during the race will be the only medal that appears as a scatter. Plus, whenever one of those medal icons appear, more free spins are won. A bronze medal will award 2 more free spins, a silver medal will give 3 more free spins and a gold medal will win 4 more free games.
- 100m dash bonus: This game is triggered by a stacked cheetah symbol on the middle reel and it works in the same way as the freestyle swim bonus. However, each medal won in this race has a different wild property during the 8 free games. The bronze medal will become an extra wild, the silver medal becomes an extra wild and will clone one more wild on the same reel at random, while the gold medal will become an extra wild and will expand to cover all three reel positions.
- Balance beam bonus: This game is triggered when the hippo character appears on the third reel. In this side game, players must choose an acrobatic routine for the hippo to perform and once she has completed it, judges will award a multiplier between 6x and 10x to be applied to the 8 free spins.
Ultimate prize-winning glory
With all of that bonus action, it might be easy to forget that this slot machine actually awards prizes for normal rows of aligned symbols. Anytime that matching symbols form a line upon any active payline (of which players can choose between 1 to 25), it will apply a multiplier to the bet per line (the range of which starts from as little as 0.01 credits and goes up to 10.00 credits).
Spin it to win it
With a top line bet in place, spinners of Wild Games could hope to win up to 30,000 credits in any spin. However, the most exciting aspect of this game isn’t just the winning potential but also the huge number of bonus gameplay features which make every spin as exciting as the last. As they say, it’s not the winning that counts, it’s the taking part. And while you still might want to play for some big winning spins, this game is still very enjoyable to to play for sheer entertainment value.
