SuperWilds is a 5-reel, max 25-pay line online slots game from Genesis Gaming. We've all seen superhero-themed slots before. Playtech ran a whole host of Marvel-themed slots (IronMan, Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, etc) for years before Disney bought Marvel and pulled the plug on them in 2016. Also in 2016 NextGen Gaming began to release its own brand of superhero-related online slots, this time based on characters from the shared DC Universe. Batman, The Green Lantern and The Flash were the first three games released in this new series. Now Genesis Gaming have muscled-in on the super heroes motif, although like Yggdrasil Gaming's 'Super Heroes', they've gone and created super heroes all of their very own.
The back story of this slot involves an attack on an unnamed city by three unwanted nasties – a giant, fat super-lizard, a giant two-headed robot and something that looks like a giant (you get the theme?) twinkie. Four super heroes are called upon to save the city from destruction – The Tripler, The Doubler, Expando-Man and The Spin Twins. All have special super powers that will increase your chances of a cash payout upon every spin. They are joined on the reels by playing card values jack through to ace.
Betting in this game involves selecting your coin size from 0.01 to 10.00, and the number of lines you want in play from one to all twenty-five. Your final wager-per-spin is your coin size multiplied by the number of lines in play. When you're ready to wear your underpants outside of your trousers, hit the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest pay-out in this game is for three identical playing card values which will win you five coins. The jackpot in normal play of five hundred coins is obtained by landing five of the giant lizard on an active pay line.
All five super heroes symbols, plus the SuperWilds logo act as wild symbols in this game. They substitute for all other symbols.
If you land three wilds in any position after a spin then you load up 'SuperWilds Free Spins'. You are awarded ten free spins with an additional bonus feature(s) depending upon which wild(s) triggered the free spins for you:
- The Tripler – all wins are multiplied by three
- The Doubler – all wins are multiplied by two
- Expando-Man – if you land a wild then it expands to fill the entire reel
- The Spin Twins – you are awarded five extra free spins
You can trigger free spins by landing more than one combination of SuperWilds. When this happens, the features are combined (for example if you land one Tripler and two Doublers, then all wins will be multiplied by twelve).
This game has a kind of retro look and feel, complete with one-armed bandit sound effects. Wins do seem to occur frequently, but only minor (i.e. playing card) ones. SuperWilds is not going to win many prizes (or rescue many cities from giant fat lizards) but it is a geniune diversion that's worth a few spins.
