Where to play?
The Wild Wood is a medium to high variance Novomatic video slots with 10 paylines, 5 reels and pays a non-progressive jackpot of 5,000 coins. Players can get in on the action from 40 pence up to £50 per spin on PCs or mobile phones. This woodland themed game’s focal point is its free spins feature triggered by 3 or more scatter symbols offering 32 exhilarating free spins with frequent re-triggers and wins further boosted by wilds.
Having played the game with a bankroll of £50 I get the feeling that the developing staff of Novomatic took a stroll out in the country side on an Autumn morning. Visually the game looks sharp but there’s a few misses here and there-overall the slots does Novomatic justice. However, let’s not leave the software provider hanging; the wilds come with a 2x multipliers (doubling all wins) and the free spins bonus mode is tip top. Symbols on the reels compliment the theme of the slots well, you’ll see bluebells, conkers, badgers and birds.
The symbol that pays the top cash prize in The Wild Wood, hit 5 of these bad boys on an active payline at the maximum wager and you’ll win 5,000x your stake. The scatter (eclipsed moon) pays the same amount. Wild Wood offers an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.1%.
Since it’s quite a volatile slots it’s important that you keep a close eye on your bankroll. After all any online slot is a negative expectation game meaning that you’ll lose in the long run. If you hit a nice payout cash out your wins and walk away a winner from the casino.
The wild symbol is The Wild Wood logo, winning combinations are completed by it when it substitutes adjacent symbols bar the scatter.
”In the free spin bonus game the scatter acts as a wild and appears quite often, expect more re-triggers.”
The scatter symbol is the Crescent Moon, 3 or more of them on an active payline triggers the free spins feature awarding 16 free spins. The scatter is not just any ordinary scatter, it acts as a wild (Wild Transformation) too and pitches quite often leading to more re-triggers.The nice thing about the wild is that it comes with a multiplier of 2x doubling all payouts during the free spins.
As night falls the woodland landscape changes, should another 2 scatters pitch during the free spins an extra 16 free spins will be given making it a total of 32 free spins.
On the surface of things Novomatic’s The Wild Wood exudes tranquility but it’s quite a tight. All the action is reserved for the free spins feature that paid me a pretty penny thanks to those extra wilds and re-triggerable free spins mode. If you’re out to trigger the free spins feature be prepared to spend some cash. Not our favourite slots by the vendor but it does deserve a few money spins.
