Whats not so hot?
Wild Beats is a hip hop video slots by Playtech with 25 paylines and 5 reels. The game can be played on mobile phones and PCs from 25 pence per spin at playtech casinos. As the name implies it’s all about the ‘Wilds’ that change lessor symbols into extra wilds and it does not contain a free spins bonus feature.
From a visual perspective the reels are encased in bright colours, it has a funky theme where urban dancers square off against each other. The main attraction is the ‘Dance It Out!’ bonus game which is played when 2 wilds pitch on the second and fourth reels respectively.
The symbols on the third reel change into additional wilds offering big payouts. Wild Beats is a medium variance slot that pays a top non-progressive jackpot of 5,000 coins and comes with an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.7%. The audio of the slots has an upbeat tempo to it (hip hop) even the dancers look pretty cool.
Paying symbols on the reels all flushed in bright colours compliment the game’s theme well. You’ll see sunglasses, neon trousers, dancing boots, headphones and caps.
Bets can be made from 25 pence right up to £10 per spin. Before you play ensure that your average stake per spin reflects your budget accurately, play the game in the free mode first and consult the ‘Paytable’.
This slots focuses exclusively on those wilds with a special emphasis on the Dance It Out! feature.
The wild symbol pays the biggest cash prize of 200x (5,000 coins) your line bet when 5 of them appear on the reels at the maximum wager. It substitutes the other symbols when it completes a winning combination. Two special wilds join the fray as well: The first one is the dancer with the headphones and the second is the dancer wearing the hat.
Dance It Out!
The Dance It Out! bonus game is initiated when 2 special wilds pop up on reels 2 and 4. They transform low value symbols on reel 3 into extra wilds. Should the second and fourth reels become laced with wilds, the centre reel will be one big wild affair.
Wild Beats is a wild at heart new-generation slots since it appeals to the modern-day player (millennials). The Dance It Out! feature delivers a powerful punch payout wise.
Although it’s a breath of fresh air it’s not for me. I enjoyed playing the slots for the first 40 spins but became monotonous soon after, to be honest I prefer games with free spins features.
