Introducing the Wild Machine from Pragmatic Play

The wild machine from Pragmatic Play invites you to enter the laboratory of a mad scientist and get to try out the wild machine. The base game begins with a 5x5 grid but could shift at random to give you the opportunity to land a seven in a row winning combination. The wheel bonus will provide you with either free spins or an instant cash prize. This is a highly volatile slot that can be played using any device and has a bet range that starts from as little as 20p per spin up to £100 per spin.


The imagery that is used in this slot is beautifully created using comic book styling that works well. In the background there is the mad professor’s laboratory and the reels feature the usual playing card suit symbols along with equipment, instruments and keys. The crazy scientist with the beard is the highest paying symbol and when you land 3, 4, 5 or 7 on your pay line you will be rewarded with 1.25x, 5x, 25x or 175x your stake respectively. The wild in this game also offers the same wins.

Shifting Game Grid

If you are anything like me, you will want to know how you can land seven symbols across one pay line when the action takes place on a 5x5 grid? It is simple, the gaming action begins on a 5x5 grid and on any spin your reels could shift to create a formation of 1x3x5x7x5x3x1, and this is how you can create a seven-symbol winning combination. When your reels show a 7-reel set up your 1st, 4th and 7th reels will be completely wild. The pay lines remain at 40 no matter what your reel setup is. 

How to Play

When you are ready simply push the spin button which is located at the bottom right hand corner of your screen, alongside the spin button there are the circles that read plus and minus then below this is the Auto play bar. To set your bet you need to select either the minus or plus as this opens the board, and this is where you can place the bet that you are most comfortable with. There are three bet settings but don’t be put off by this as you will see that your bet amount will always be shown in the bottom left hand corner of your game screen.

When it comes to placing your bet there are a couple of ways to do this, you may decide to work the coin value and bet to impact your total bet or just scroll through the setting to arrive at the amount you want to bet. The smallest coin value stands at £0.01 up to a maximum of £0.50 which gives you £0.20 per spin to a maximum of £100 per spin making this a slot that will appeal to all types of player.
You can enjoy a totally hands-free gaming experience by setting up the auto play function. All you need do is tap or click on the auto play button and select the number of automatic spins you require and then add any of the four different stop rules which means you have total control over the balance.

Spin in the Wins

Now you know how to play you need to know how to win! This slot has a high variance with an RTP which stands at 96.52% and surprisingly the symbol pay outs are high too.

The reels start as a 5x5 grid and expands to cover a large surface area creating more squares, when playing in the default mode the best pay outs come from matching five symbols on your reels but you need to have seven symbols to reach the big wins. The highest paying symbol is the scientist and landing seven will see you with a win of 175x your stake whereas landing five will give you a win total of 25x your stake. The book symbol pays 50x your stake for seven and 12.5x your stake when you land five. Whilst the magic orb pays 37.5x for landing seven and 6.25x your stake when you land five.

Bonus Features

The wild in this slot can substitute for all symbols except the scatter to create winning combinations and the wild will also pay you 175x your stake when you land seven. The scatter can land on your three middle reels and if it lands in three positions all together and from this the bonus wheel feature is activated. This is where you either win a cash prize or one of the following free spin bonuses.

The first free spin feature is the Gold Foundry Free Spins and this takes place on a 5x5 grid with eight free spins rewarded, and on every spin there is a chance that you can land between two and five reels that are stacked with wilds. The other free spin feature is the Diamond Forge Free Spins, and this is when your reel is fully expanded and your 1st, 4th and 7th reels are guaranteed to have one or more wilds and this feature starts with you having five free spins. It is a shame, but the free spin bonus features cannot be reactivated.

Final Thoughts

One thing that is good about the wild machine is that the slot is available to play using the demo mode which gives you the chance to get to grips with the game without risking any of your own money. This gives you the greatest chance of landing wins when you play for real.
There is a lot going in with this slot, and if you are looking for a dynamic slot with more than one feature, this will be the game for you. The variance is high, so you are more likely to land a big win than lots of little one.
I really enjoyed playing this slot, the theme is excellent with a fabulous backing track and visuals to boot. The way the game can shape shift spices play up no end and the free spins an extra wild can be most rewarding. The maximum win from any spin is 7,000x your stake which makes it worth a spin or two, but don’t just take my word for it, give the slot a go I don’t think you will be disappointed.
