IGT introduces another captivating video slot titled ‘The Wild Life’, it has 10 paylines, 5 reels and offers a non-progressive jackpot of 2,500 coins.
The difference between a progressive and a non progressive jackpot is that a progressive’s jackpot keeps on growing. The slots can be played on PC desktops and mobile devices. (https://casinowhizz.com/online-casino-progressive-jackpots-explained/)
The slots has an African Safari theme to it, on the reels you’ll see wild animals such as zebras, giraffes, lions, rhinos and cards from 10 to Ace. The symbol that offers the biggest cash prize is the lion, hit 5 of them at the maximum bet and you’ll win 2,500 coins or 250x your stake. The game mechanic of the slots features both way wins. In other words during winning combinations wins can be on consecutive reels starting with the leftmost to the rightmost reel. The expanding wilds plays a pivotal role too so keep your eyes peeled for it.
”The Wild Life slots by IGT has a unique look to it, the colour red enhances the theme well by giving it a warm touch so reminiscent of the African plains.”
This is a high variance slots of the top order and will wreck havoc on a a small bankroll. IGT is renowned for its high roller slot games whether it be online or those found on the floors of land-casinos across the globe. The RTP or return to player percentage of The Wild Life is 95% or a house edge (HE) of 5%. The good news is that this high variance slots has a free spins feature which awards you anything from 4 free spins up to 15 free spins but more on it in a bit.
The reels can be spun from a mere 10 pence up to a mind boggling £2,000 per spin. Clearly this shows that the game is intended for high rollers with extremely deep pockets. If you play the game on your mobile phone it’s best to tune on your Wi-Fi cause it will go through your data bundles in no time.
Should you become disconnected while you’re playing there’s an in-built feature that saves your last session automatically. Customization options such as audio, Auto Play, graphics and a Max Spin button have been added for your convenience too.
The wild symbol is the majestic lion it only pitches on the 2, 3 and 4 reels. The wild completes a winning combination when it expands to cover the entire reel turning it into a wild reel. Should you hit 3 wilds on the 3 centre reels all three reels will become wilds.
The free spins mode is initiated when 3 or more African scatters symbols appear any position on the reels. Three scatters gives you 10 free spins, 4 scatters award 15 free spins and 5 scatters award 20 free spins. However, the expanding wild symbol really boosts wins during the free spins, but it must pop up on reels 2, 3 and 4 (centre reels) first.
Once the reel is turned wild it remains locked until the feature is completed. If you’re lucky enough to hit a few roaring wilds you can win as much as 1000x your line bet. I haven’t played the slots yet but my gut feeling tells me that it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s triggered after 500 plus spins thanks in part to the its extreme volatility.
The Wild Life slots by IGT won’t win any accolades in the graphic department since it’s a high variance game that gets down to business straightaway-it shoots from the hip so to speak.
During the main game and the free spins mode the expanding wild is responsible for some crazy big wins. Once you’ve triggered the free spins (not easy) the trick is to hit 3 locked wild reels, succeed, brace yourself for a big win.
