Although the Olympic Games are over, it’s worth to give a try to a new Playtech slot based on the theme of the Games. Dominated by a team of engaging `animal athletes`,Playtech`s “Wild Games” video slot will keep you entertained as this crew of cool cartoon animals go compete in their chosen sporting events, all eager to help you win some cool cash.
“Wild Games” is a 5 reel 25 payline video slot with a line bet range from 0.20 credits to 20 credits and a $60,000 jackpot.
The introductory video introduces the protagonists. We get to know a funny bulldog, which is the swimming exponent, a friendly cheetah, which is the sprint master and a bit overweight hippo, who negotiates the balance beam. The three competitors appear as symbols on the reels and play an important role in the features of the game. The wild symbol is the games trophy that awards the highest line payout of 3,000 coins. Since it’s an Olympic slot, the symbols obviously include gold, silver and bronze medals. Three or more medals of the same kind anywhere on the reels trigger the Win a Medal Bonus, in which you have to pick one of the medals and will be awarded bonus points depending on the type and number of medals.
However, the best bonus features are triggered by the three contestants. When the bulldog covers the entire central reel the Freestyle Swim Bonus is triggered. You have to choose one of the three bulldogs competing in the race. Depending on the position of the chosen bulldog you will be awarded a gold, silver or bronze medal as well as eight free spins. During the free spins the medal you’ve been awarded may appear on the reels and enhance the number of free spins. The gold medal enhances free spins by four, the silver medal by three and the bronze medal by two.
The cheetah covering the entire central reel activates the 100M Dash Bonus. Once again, you have to choose one of the three cheetahs and will be awarded eight free spins and a gold, silver or bronze medal. During the free spins the gold medal becomes an expanding wild, the silver medal clones one more wild and the bronze medal becomes a normal wild.
The Balance Beam Bonus is played in a slightly different way. It is activated when the hippo covers the central reel. You have to select a balance beam routine that the hippo will perform, while the judges will score the performance. You can win a multiplier between 6x and 10x. This multiplier will apply to the eight free spins awarded.
“Wild Games” is a incredibly entertaining slot game with a theme that is sure to be popular long after the Olympic Games. If you’re looking for a slot that offers good jackpots and lots of different bonuses then it’s well worth a look.
