Playing Wild Gambler Slots Game
There are 10 symbols in Wild Gambler, the apex of this Sahara is the lion, who is also the wild and will payout 1000 if we manage to land 5 symbols on the reels.
We then have a rhino who’s maximum is 800 coins, moving down again is a cheetah who’s max payout is 500, a zebra with 400 and a flamingo with 300 coins. In addition to these there are the standard A, K, Q, J, 10 that we are accustomed to seeing.
This slot game comes with the standard slot board layout of 5 Reels and 3 Rows which gives us the opportunity to make winnings through 20 Paylines. Statistically, these winning will be pretty tasty with an RTP of 97%! Which is above the industry norm.
On top of that there is a wide breadth in betting range, starting at a min bet of £0.20 and going all the way up to a max bet of £100. Giving anyone who would like to the chance to get involved for a couple of spins!
Bonus Features and Free Spins
Lock And Spin
This feature is one of the biggest bonuses of this game, it creates an entirely different dynamic and system of play to any other slot. This feature allows you to choose to have all wilds locked meaning we can significantly increase our potential winnings.
Note though that this does effect the stake variably with how many locked wilds are in play. That being said, there is the option to choose a specific stake and limit how many locked wilds are in play in a given spin. We are also able to disable auto locking wilds meaning that if there is a specific pattern that we would like to have locked in that only that patter will stay in place.
Random Free Spins
As we can expect in this menagerie of wildlife, there are meerkats to will pop up from time to time, randomly as we play. They can appear in numbers between 1 and 5. If we are lucky enough to have 5 pop up at once, then we will have unlocked the bonus spins. We are awarded 8 bonus spins in the round.
What’s really great about the free spins bonus is that the wilds that are locked in place prior to the round being initiated will stay in place. On top of that, any wilds that spin on to the reels during the free spin bonus round will also be locked into place, maximizing our potential earnings and giving us access to what would be some expensive spins!
Our Verdict on Wild Gambler Slot
Wild Gambler, the predecessor of Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure shows us why they decided to change very little in the newer release. They were on to a winner. The functionality of this game is designed to give us players as much freedom in our playstyle as possible.
With the lock and spin feature, there is a real element of skill as a tactician aiming to gain the most profits from our wild placement. There is a lot of thought to be put into which are the most effective in consideration with the paylines.
Visually this slot is nothing to write home about, but it also is not so lacking as to be off putting. For these reasons this game has earnt a rating of 8/10, and if you want to try the sequel, you can find the Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure slot.
