Where to play?
‘Wishwood has launched and is ready to play at all IGT Casinos it’s a high variance video slot that comes with 20 paylines, 5 reels and offers a non-progressive jackpot of 10,000 coins, come to think of it this is great. The game’s theme is about a magical forest filled with all manner of weird and wonderful woodland creatures.
With Wispy Wilds, 10x multipliers and Tangled symbols with re-spins it has 3 bonus games that are triggered randomly during the main game. You’re also given a choice of 3 free spins features which can be accessed through the Poa climbs the magical tree and the Bonus Climb. During the free spins you’ll get expanding wilds, locking wilds and animal symbols are transformed into wilds.
The smallest bet per spin is 20 pence up to £400 per spin, did we expect anything less from IGT? We think not. Wishwood slots can be played on mobile phones (Androids, iPhones, iPads, tablets) and PC desktops (Apple Mac and Windows) for real cash and for free.
Against the backdrop of the reels is a magical tree, symbols on the reels include cards from 10 to Ace (low value), squirrels, butterflies, golden acorns, wild and owls. The wild symbol is the most rewarding symbol, 5 of them at the maximum bet per spin pays 500x your stake. In terms of bonus features this slots is teeming with them! The average return to player percentage (RTP) of Wishwood is 95.7%
IGT’s Wishwood has 6 bonus modes making the potential for some big wins really good. Despite being loaded with bonus features low rollers might find it a steep. Irrespective of the size of your bankroll we still encourage you to play it because it’s one of those ‘EPIC’ games that don’t come along very often. Budget wise play it with a bankroll of at least £200 whether you’re out to play it for fun or chasing the big win.
There are 3 bonus features during the main game. Three wisps appear randomly, pick one to reveal the Wispy Wilds, the Magic Multipliers or the Bonus Climb:
Four wilds can appear randomly on any position across the reel set.
Between the reels 3 or 4 multipliers appear (2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10). Any symbol/s they touche will be transformed into a winning combination.
Bonus Climb. Of the three base game bonus games this one is the most lucrative. It’s triggered when 3 bonus symbols pop up on reels 1, 3 and 5. When 2 Bonus symbols appear Poa kicks the reels adding a cracking third bonus. A reel also pops up which you must spin to see how far Poa will climb, the higher Poa climbs the more cash prizes are offered. You’ll pocket 10x your stake is Poa ends on branch 0, 1 or 2. If he reaches 3 to 6, the Amber Wilds feature is triggered along with the Enchanted Bonus if you reach branch 7 to 10. Now, if Poa reaches branch 11 the ‘Top of the Tree Bonus feature is played:
Top of the Tree Free Spins
Eight free spins are awarded, here you must pick either the owl, squirrel or butterfly (special symbol). Symbols expand by covering the entire reel after every spin and they can be transformed into special symbols offering bigger payouts.
Enchanted Wild Free Spins
This free spins feature gives you 5 free spins, the accumulator circle is filled by a wisp symbol that appears. Complete three circles the next animal symbol becomes a wild until the free spins feature ends, plus you’ll pocket an extra 5 freebies. Should you succeed in filling up the 4th accumulator another 5 free spins will be awarded, potentially this feature awards as many as 25 free spins.
Amber Wilds Free Spins
Here you’ll pocket 7 free spins, wilds form part of the winning combinations that remain locked on the reels.
Let’s just gather our thoughts here for second. Suffice to say this is one crazy busy slots, the bonus features during the main game offer decent wins along with a 10x multiplier for high value symbols. The free spins features are equally impressive, of the lot we prefer the ‘Enchanted Wild Free Spins’ because up to 25 free spins can be won and animal symbols become wild which offer bigger wins.
This is an incredibly well-designed slots that’s not only very entertaining (forget the high variance bit) it also pays a maximum 10,000x your stake on a single spin which makes it a must for high rollers. Another slots with a similar theme by Bally Technologies is Acorn Pixie.
