Introducing Better Wilds
The Better Wilds is the latest slot from the developers at Playtech and it certainly lives up to its name, with up to 1,250,000.00 to be won, but if you keep reading, you’ll get the chance to dive into the incredible potential a little later.
Better Wilds is played on a 5-reel and 25 pay line slot game area and not only are there regular wilds but there are also green diamond wilds, and these are the ones that you will really want to see appearing on your reels with their chance to give huge rewards.
Theme and Design
You would be right if you think that Playtech are renowned for their licensed slots such as Gladiator and the infamous Batman Begins, however, Better Wilds shows another side of the developers with an old school approach complete with symbols from this time to. You can expect to come across poker cards, single, double, and triple BARS, golden bells and the truly classical red 7s.
Playtech have gone with a vibrant colour scheme which brings something edgy and new to the traditional symbols. The slot itself sits in front of a bright blue backdrop with a spectacular laser styled show flashing behind. The funky soundtrack adds to the classic theme, giving it a brand-new modern feel.
The slot all looks good from a first glance, and plays well for the player on PCs, Macs and laptops, as well as on iOS, Windows and Android smartphones and tablets!
Whether you like to place smaller bets on your slots, or you prefer a bigger wager to see you through so big wins, the Better Wilds slot has a bet level for your preference.
The minimum bet that can be played at any one time is 0.05, which gives the player a minimum spin wager of 0.002 per line in a single spin, thanks to the 25 pay lines. However, you can bet as much as 100.00 per line, which equates to 2,500.00 per spin. With this massive betting range of several thousands, there is no shortage of potential betting wagers for those who are indecisive on their bids, whether you like a low average bet, or a high average wager, there is something for everyone in this betting bonanza.
The bets for the slot are no good if you do not have a decent set of symbols to be spinning with.
The lowest paying symbols are the Q and J paying x5, x15 or x50 for 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols on a pay line. The K and A pays a little above at x5, x20 and x75 for 3, 4 or 5 on a line. Moving on we have the cherries, which give x5, x25 and x100 for the 3, 4 or 5 symbols. The single BAR will pay x10, x40 and x125. It’s double act the Double BAR will give x10, x50 or x150 for the matching of 3, 4 and 5 symbols. The Triple BAR offers x10, x75 and x200.
The Golden Bell takes us into the higher paying symbols which also pay out on matching two symbols. The Golden Bell gives x5, x15, x100 and x250 for 2, 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols on a line. The Red 7 offers the player x5, x25, x200 or x500, while the Wild and Diamond Wild will give the player x5, x25, x250 and x500 for matching 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols on the pay line.
Spinning these symbols, you can also click autoplay and set the reels spinning on their own while you sit back and relax. Be sure to set a loss limit just in case!
The average return for this slot is 96.42%, which is above the average that we have been seeing in the most recent slots on the market. Not only that but Playtech slots are all independently certified to allow for fair gaming which means you can rest assured that you’re going to get a good deal n the slot.
There is only really one bonus feature in this slot, but it is a good one. It’s called Go Wild for Respins and begins when the green diamond wild appears on the reels. Once you collect any wins from the triggering spin, any green diamond wilds move one reel to the left, as each of the other symbols will respin. From the second respin onwards, the wilds that trigger the spins will stay on the reels and expand either up or down by a row. These additional expanded wild symbols make it easier to complete combinations.
The respins continue for as long as there are green diamond wilds, and with a little luck, additional will appear, which will extend the feature’s potential.
While it is only a single feature, the potential to win big is massive with no limit to the length of the feature, which makes this slot’s feature even more exciting than first glance.
With stunning symbols and graphics, with plenty of potential for the player to win even bigger, this is an incredible slot. The winning chances are brilliant for the player, with the chance to win up to 1,250,000.00 every time they spin.
While this slot is not the most advanced, with only the one feature, there is still plenty of opportunity for the player to win big with the 96.42% RTP giving a higher than average chance! Still, the one feature that the slot offers is well executed and brings good wins for the player, with the chance of triggering it easier than most features in similar slot.
