Wild North Slot
Wild North is a freezing online slots game from Play'n GO. It has 5 reels and a fixed number of forty paylines. It also has a 'wild' number of bonus features and symbols that keep things interesting. The theme of the game are the frozen wastes of the northern hemisphere and the critters whom reside there – reindeer, bears, wolves, owls, wildcats and camels (camels famously cannot read maps). These animals are joined on the reels by playing card values nine through to ace.
There's a sliding scale beneath the reels where you can select your bet. It can be anything from 0.20 to 50. There's none of this 'bet per line per coin' nonsense for once – your bet is a straight up bet, and all forty pay lines are in play at all times. Once you're happy with your bet, just hit the spin button to set the reels in motion. To win, you need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence on one of the pay lines from the left hand reel.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence at 0.1x your bet for three nines or tens. The jackpot is set at 12.5x your bet for five lynxes – that might seem quite tight for a 'jackpot' but with the additional features of this slot, that total can be boosted significantly. The lynx also serves – appropriately – as the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter.
A 'Northern Lights' symbol acts as the scatter. Land three or more to win entry into the Northern Lights Bonus Game. You get one spin of a bonus wheel to determine which one of seven bonus features you get to play:
- The Great Wilderness – three free spins with 4×4 'Mega Symbols' on reels two to five.
- The Wild Lynx – three free spins in which one or two reels go completely wild on each spin.
- Running Reindeer – one free spin in which the reindeer symbol is stacked on the central three reels.
- Savage Bear – one free spin with a random multiplier worth up to 30x.
- Wolf Pack – one free spin with a 2×2 wild wolf symbol, and the potential to win more freebies.
- Eyes of the Owl – one free spin with two 2×2 owl symbols. You are awarded free spins until you win.
- Wild North Explorer – select from twenty tiles. Some symbols win you cash prizes, while others cash you in and end the feature.
Wild North is a lovely looking game from Play'n GO, and has enough bonus features to keep you totally entertained. You could even play in the dead of winter with all your windows open for the true, 'Wild North' slots experience!
