Set up the Basics
Bigger than the original 3-reelers, Wild Respin is set over five reels with a whopping 40 paylines. The higher the number of paylines, the better chance you have of winning- generally – so it’s a good sign that there’s so much on offer.
The coin value starts at 10 and increases to 200 so there’s a total min bet of 400 and a total max bet of 8000. Although there’s a broad spectrum there’s no bets which can be placed which are really low so this s a game more likely to be enjoyed by players with a big budget. However the prizes that are handed out in Wild Respin are pretty big too, justifying the larger stakes. The top prize is the lucky number 7, paying out a cool 8,000,000 if five symbols are matched on the screen. But this isn’t the only biggie, five of the stars also hits the sweet spot with a prize of 2,000,000.
The other prizes on the board are still large but not on the same scale. Payouts begin from a match of just three but the more symbols you get, the bigger the prize. With such enormous payouts it’s not a surprise to discuss that the volatility of these is high, although the exact RTP isn’t known.
Playing for Extra
As well as being able to win prizes by matching up symbols, there’s also extra helping hands on the reels too. The Lucky number 7 which is the top value symbol doubles up as the wild, helping players to make up winning combinations. The only symbol it can’t substitute for is the scatter. The other big value symbol, the star, is the scatter and this means that it doesn’t have to lie along an active payline to count, it can appear anywhere on the reels and still be used.
There’s an extra feature too giving players free spins and lasting as long as the respin symbol appears on the board. It can be triggered in the first place by the wild and matching symbols appearing together on reel one.
Go Wild with Your Bets
If you’re still craving a big win and haven’t hit one of the top prizes yet, there’s another way you could bump up your payouts.
Every time you notch up a win on the reels the gamble feature will appear. This is a completely optional part of the game and if you are more cautious, you can just ignore it and collect your money. You can use the Gamble feature as many or as few times as you want; the choice is yours. If you decide to play, you’ll be facing a random game of chance where you’ll need to predict the colour or suit of the next card to be turned over. Regular slots players will find this game very familiar as it’s used by multiple developers in an almost identical format.
Amatic haven’t done anything to make it more specific to the Wild Respin game so it’s a very generic play. The only exception is that you will have the ability to bet either half or all of your prize. Amatic have a habit of including this option in their Gamble feature but not all developers do. This provides the best of both worlds as you can play for more money without having to completely sacrifice your winnings if you lose.
Wild Respin by Amatic won’t win any points for originality but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad slot. Deliberately created to reinvent the classic, it’s an updated version of a retro style game. This means that players who enjoy the traditional symbols could give this a big thumbs up, enjoying bigger prizes but with the same kitsch feel.
