Wild Mantra Slot Machines
Wild Mantra from the developers at Yggdrasil Gaming is a 5 reel, 25 pay line slot which can be played on any device. The betting starts from just 10p per spin up to a colossal £125 per spin. Visually this is a stunning slot which is based on meditation and has a truly spiritual feel about it. The backdrop is made up of a picturesque mountain range and adds just the right touch.
Symbols and features
For each reel the symbols spin in columns and the symbols include the playing card suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. There are also four different signs. Landing five of any of the signs on any pay line and the reward is four times the stake. The wild is the most important symbol and when it appears it is four symbols tall and landing additional wilds activates the Mantra Re-spins feature. If a new wild appears in the re-spins all wilds that have landed previously are nudged on by one position.
The wild continues this nudge pattern whenever a new wild appears until the entire reel is wild. There is also the Free Spins feature which comes into play when there are 3, 4 or 5 free spins scatter symbols. Landing three pays x2 of the stake, landing four pays x20 of the stake whilst five rewards the player with x1,000 times their stake plus 10 free spins with any wilds that are on the reels when the feature was activated are then carried to the free spins.
Due to the additional one wild appearing on the reels as soon as the feature begins, all the wilds are sticky which means that they remain on the reels throughout. In the same way as the Mantra Re-spins feature each additional wild nudges the wilds present up. If the reel is full of wilds players are rewarded with an additional free spin which means that there are an extra five free spins on offer in total.
I would describe the gameplay in Wild Mantra as having medium volatility so players won’t find themselves waiting forever to land a decent win, but it will not be a huge amount. The return to player is set at just over 96% and after having played the slot for a while I agree with this. This is a figure that would apply long term and not aimed at any individual player in particular.
Although Wild Mantra looks the part and offers two great bonus rounds is it s a low variance slot and the most that can be won from one spin is x100 the stake, which is nothing to get excited about when compared with competitor slots. In the free spins feature the likelihood of winning the maximum prize does increase dramatically due to the presence of the sticky wilds.
The biggest win can be landed with five free spin scatters which rewards players with x1,000 their original stake. It is due to this that I cannot see Wild Mantra becoming one of the most popular slots from the gaming team at Yggdrasil Gaming. However, as Wild Mantra is one of only a few slots that takes its inspiration from the Buddhist religion, and the theme works well mainly due to the fabulous design that Yggdrasil have created. It is not a slot with huge potential which is what players are looking for today, but I am sure that it will give most players a lot of fun.
For players that like this theme and are looking for bigger potential with regards to pay outs then I would suggest giving Divine Dreams from Quickspin a spin.
