The Great Outdoors
Modern life can be so fast-paced and busy that it is easy to forget that there is a whole wide world out there. Roaring Wilds serves to remind us that there is more to life than our jobs, homes, cars and other material possessions. There is also nature, fresh air, and the chance to win some slot machine jackpots! This game gives punters the chance to experience all of that without even having to get out of their pyjamas – how good is that?
Upon the reels of the slot machine, spinners will come across some classic wildlife, we’re talking about the kind of animals you’d only ever see in a David Attenborough documentary. There are majestic bald eagles, cunning mountain lions, ferocious grizzly bears and, er, slippery salmon. These icons are all designed in a traditional manner with two-dimensional illustrations which capture the characteristics of each creature on the reels. The reels themselves are set over a dramatic mountain backdrop as the Aurora Borealis lights up the scene.
The Riches of the Wilds
Roaring Wilds can be played with anywhere between 1 and 40 paylines, with a range of line bet values from 0.01 to 50.00 credits. As such, the maximum possible bet in the game is a rather hefty 2,000.00 credits, making the slot machine ideal for high rolling spinners. What’s more, this is a medium to high volatility video slot, meaning that the wins won’t be handed out with every other spin on the reels.
In fact, players may have to outlay quite a lot of their bankroll before they get a winning combination to return some wins into their balance. If punters were to glance at the game’s paytable, they will find that the general prize-winning potential doesn’t seem to reflect this, since the highest line bet multiplier is worth 1,000x. However, there is still a chance for some big winning spins thanks to the fact that the symbols often stack themselves on the reels, meaning that punters can trigger multiple paylines on any one spin for big accumulated wins. Overall, the game has a theoretical return to player of 95.50%.
This slot machine also helps punters feel the rewards of mother nature by offering a couple of simple bonus gameplay features. First of all, the grizzly bear wild icon has the power to complete line wins by replacing all game symbols except for the paw print scatter. This paw print scatter icon will trigger a round of 15 free spins whenever three or more appear in any reel position while also awarding total bet multipliers worth up to 50x (that would return a jackpot of 100,000 if the max bet is played).
If punters still aren’t satisfied with the wins that are coming their way, then they can attempt to boost their prizes with a card based gamble game. There is an option to gamble the full prize from the previous spin for double returns as well as the option to gamble half of the prize. The aim of thee game is to select a card from a four face down cards that is higher than the dealer’s card. The double-up limit is 5,000 credits.
Slots of Mother Nature
The theme of nature is one of the richest in the slot machine industry and players will find many similar games out there. Microgaming has a whole series of slots that focus on wild creatures, such as Untamed Crowned Eagle, Untamed Giant Panda and Untamed Bengal Tiger, each of which offer more elaborate bonus features than this particular Playtech game.
It’s Only Natural
Roaring Wilds offers a chance for spinners to escape into a stunning natural environment that is populated by some wild critters and jackpots worth up to 100,000 credits. The high variance slot machine isn’t the most exciting when it comes to bonus features, however, with some straightforward wild wins and free spins on offer. Nevertheless, this might well suit punters who are after some relaxing spins in a relaxing natural environment.
