Just when you thought there wasn’t possibly room for another fantasy themed slot machine in the world, along came this whimsical game by Novomatic. And, in actual fact, we’re quite glad it did come along because despite its somewhat generic theme, this slot machine spins up some whopping wins. But we’ll talk more about that later.
First of all, let’s have a look at what the game has to offer from a strictly visual aspect. Appearing on the 5 reels of Wonder World are a set of symbols which make up the perfect fairy-tale story, with a set of props including an old tattered book, a crystal ball and a glowing sword which is the game’s bonus triggering scatter symbol. There is also a magnificent castle with spires towering into the clouds to provide an otherworldly setting for the slot’s character icons, which are a beautiful pixie character, a haggard old sorcerer – who acts as another scatter – and a brilliant stunning white unicorn who plays the role of the wild icon.
While the images are presented in two-dimensions, all of the props and characters are designed in excellent detail, emulating the illustrations that you might find on the cover of an epic fantasy novel. Plus, the game does use some subtle animations to add some magical motion and sparkle to the proceedings.
Take the Adventure with You
Even though the game opts to present a traditional fairytale aesthetic, it is still very much modern-minded when it comes to playability. In fact, the game is fully optimised for mobile playing platforms such as smartphones and tablets thanks to some touchscreen commands which can be accessed via the “Menu” tab on the right hand side of the reel. As such, more screen space is given to the reels themselves which sit plushly within a gold-gilded frame rather than being surrounded by extra buttons and control options.
Wins of Epic Proportion
Whether you decide escape to Wonder World using your PC or your mobile device, you could be in store for some fantastic winning prizes. That is because the Novomatic slot machine offers winning potential up to a top jackpot of 10,000,000 game credits – which is not a bad bounty at all!
The reason for such big wins are twofold. First of all, this game has only got 5 fixed paylines, making it significantly harder to line up winning sequences of symbols into prize paying combinations. Although, having said that, the paylines on this slot machine will pay in both directions, from right to left and from left to right. So, technically speaking, there is actually 10 permanent paylines in play.
The second reason for such big wins is the fact that players can place some very sizeable bets, going all the way up to 2,000 credits per line. So, that makes for a maximum possible wager of 10,000 credits after you factor in the 5 paylines. Therefore, in reality, the jackpot of 10,000,000 credits is equal to a 5,000x line bet multiplier – which is quite a reasonable prize offering by most slot machine’s standards. You can see all of the line bet multipliers in the table below:
|Symbol||Two on a Payline||Three on a Payline||Four on a Payline||Five on a Payline|
|J, 10||No win||2.5x||12.5x||50x|
Free Spins with Tripled Wins
Players can also find some wins by finding three or more wizard scatter symbols in any reel position. In fact, a total bet multiplier of 5x, 25x, and 500x will be awarded when three, four or five appear, regardless of position in relation to the paylines.
The game’s other scatter – the glowing sword – will not pay out any prizes itself, but it will award 10 free spins. Before players embark on their wager-less adventures, they will be able to pick from three cards, two of which reveal a 2x multiplier and another which has a 3x multiplier. Whichever multiplier is turned over will be applied to all of the wins during the free spins.
Will your Fairytale Come True?
Wonder World may appear to be just another fantasy themed video slot – and in reality, that is exactly what it is. However, the game does throw up a few surprises such as paylines that pay in both directions as well as free spins with the potential for triple-value wins. However, the biggest incentive of all is the fact that there is a 10,000,000 credit jackpot up for grabs, which would surely make any spinner’s fantasies become a reality.
