Wild Games Online Slot
Wild Games is an online slot game created by Playtech that combines the themes of the Olympic Games with a variety of animals. This fun slot includes 5 reels and 20 paylines, as well as 4 different bonus features.
The bonus features offered by Wild Games include the Win a Medal bonus, which awards a ‘pick me’ feature and cash wins, as well as the 100m Dash feature, the Freestyle Swim feature and the Balance Beam feature which award free spins and additional bonuses.
Graphics and Themes
Wild Games is based on the Olympic Games, but incorporates a number of animated animals to add an element of fun to the game. The simple but quirky blue play table and reels match this fun feel, and the cartoon-like animals featured on the reels participate energetically in their respective games when their bonus features are triggered.
On the reels of this game are bronze, silver and gold bonus medals, icons depicting sports like soccer and basketball, and playing card symbols from 9-A which have been styled in a bold block-like font. The stars of Wild Games, the wild animals, feature on the reels too, and include a charismatic sprint-running cheetah, an acrobatic hippo dressed in pink and a bulldog donning blue swimming trunks.
Win a Medal Bonus
Wild Games online slot offers 4 unique bonus features. To activate the Win a Medal bonus feature, players must land 3 or more of the same colour medals, gold, silver or bronze, on the reels. This will trigger a classic ‘pick me’ feature in which players will be awarded a cash prize depending on which medals triggered the feature. Landing 3 or more bronze medals will award players between 2x and 40x their stake, 3 or more silver medals awards between 3x and 70x the stake and at least 3 gold medals on the reels awards players anywhere between 4x and 100x their stake.
100m Dash Bonus
The animal symbols in the game may also appear as stacked wild symbols, which will trigger the other bonus features when appearing on the centre reel.
Landing the cheetah stacked wild symbol on the middle reel will activate the 100m Dash bonus feature. In this feature, players must pick one of 3 cheetahs to complete an Olympic race. Depending on whether players’ chosen cheetahs finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd in this race, players will be awarded extra bonus prizes additional to a standard 8 free spins. If players’ cheetahs finish 3rd and receive a bronze medal, all bronze medal symbols that appear during the free spins will transform into wilds. If the cheetah obtains a silver medal and 2nd place, all silver symbols will become wild and an extra wild will be cloned onto the reels. If the cheetah wins a gold medal during the race, an extra expanding wild will be added to the reels.
Freestyle Swim Bonus
The bulldog stacked wild appearing on the middle reel activates the Freestyle Swim bonus feature. This feature works in the same way as the 100m Dash bonus, and also awards players 8 free spins. Depending on the bulldog’s finishing place, players will also be awarded an extra 2, 3 or 4 free spins.
Balance Beam Bonus
The hippo stacked wild activates the Balance Beam bonus feature. Again, 8 free spins are awarded, and a set of judges will vote on the hippo’s performance as she balances on her beam. Depending on the votes, players will be awarded a 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x or 20x multiplier on their wins during the free spins.
