Amazon Wild Slot
Amazon Wild is a tasty online slot from Playtech with five reels and 100 fixed pay lines. This game definitely causes a rumble in the jungle, with a pleasurable mix of wild animals, birds and flowers all served up to help you hack away and uncover plenty of delicious cash jackpots. There's a decent bonus game and extra features to add to the fun in the foliage, and those extremely generous 100 payline means the odds of winning are nicely favourable. As an extra bonus, the slot has four symbol rows instead of the normal three.
The symbols in this game are spit into three subject areas: Animals (panther, monkey, chameleon and frog), Birds (toucan, parrot, lovebird and humming bird), and Plants (er … red one, white one, purple one, green one). There's also a bonus scatter symbol of a map, and a wild symbol of a rather poorly-looking Amazon god. If you manage to land at least three identical symbols on one of the 100 paylines in sequence from the left hand reel then you're a winner. You can choose your stake from 0.01 to 1.00, which is then multiplied by 100 because of the fixed 100 lines.
Payout & bonus rounds
Receiving a bunch of flowers with Amazon Wild is just like real life – okay but nothing to get really excited about. Three 'green plants' is the lowest payout at x20 your stake-per-line. The top prize is awarded for five black panthers, which wins a snarling x1000 your stake.
The Amazon God symbol is wild (and he certainly looks that way) and substitutes for all symbols aside from the scatter symbol. If you land two wild symbols on the same reel, then the entire reel will turn wild.
The Map symbol is a scatter symbol and is the gateway into the bonus game. You need to land at least three scatters anywhere on the reels to play the bonus game. You are shown a map upon which are an number of Amazon ruins – you get to select a number of them (the same number as the number of scatters you obtained) behind which are hidden cash jackpots.
Amazon Wild is now rather an aged game but it's still extremely popular among those who enjoy simpler slots. Those four rows of symbols and the 100 bonus symbols do really help to keep the cash flowing, although the minimum 1.00 per spins means you're going to need a few wins to keep yourself in the black. In short, a nicely-designed and nice-looking slot but lacking a little in variety.
