Bonus Games in the Wild Games Online Slot
The Wild Games slot gives you a chance to play four bonus games: three of them are themed to various sports and the fourth one offers large multipliers.
Freestyle Swim Bonus
The first bonus game starts when bulldog the swimmer lands on the third reel, filling it completely. Choose one of the three dogs that will participate in the swim. You are awarded with the medal corresponding to your place at the finish and 8 free spins. Free spins are spins of the reels that don't cost you anything. This means that you do not need to place the bet to start the reels spinning. The medal that you get in the swim will appear on the reels and the other medals will not land here:
- If you win a gold medal, you will be awarded with four extra free spins, when it appears on the reels
- A silver medal - three free spins
- A bronze medal - two free spins
The Wild symbols in the bonus game do not fill the entire third reel, so you cannot win other rounds. You can earn up to 200 consecutive free spins, following which re-spins will no longer be available.
100M Dash Bonus
The second bonus game is launched if the entire third reel is filled with cheetahs the runners. Choose one of the three cheetahs. You can be awarded with one of the medals and 8 free spins if you win the race.
- The gold medal will turn into an additional Wild symbol and will expand on the reel, covering it completely
- The silver medal will also turn into an additional Wild symbol and will be cloned on the reels randomly
- The bronze medal will simply become an additional Wild
In this round you cannot win other bonus rounds as well. Unlike the Freestyle Swim Bonus, you cannot get more free spins here.
Balance Beam Bonus
This bonus game starts if the picture of hippo the gymnast lands on the third reel. Choose one of the three performances to get the score from judges and 8 free spins.
Here all winnings are multiplied 6 - 10 times, depending on the score. Other bonus rounds are not launched. Medals do not appear here and you cannot get extra free spins.
Win a Medal Bonus
When three or more identical medals land on the reels, the bonus round is launched, where you will need to choose one of three awards. This way, when you start the game, all the payouts will be multiplied several times. Depending on the number on the reels, medals multiply your bet in the following range:
- The gold medal - from 4 to 100 times your bet
- The silver medal - from 3 to 70 times your bet
- The bronze medal - from 2 to 40 times your bet
If successful combinations line up on several paylines, only the largest win will be paid out. Combinations of symbols are counted only from left to right.
Symbols and Multipliers in the Wild Games Game
All symbols in the Wild Games slot themed to sports have their multipliers, the values of which depend on how many identical pictures landed on the payline. Combinations are counted starting with as few as two symbols for higher-paying ones and with three symbols for lower-paying ones. Win is your bet, multiplied by the corresponding factor. The highest-paying picture is a trophy for first place:
- Five symbols multiply the win 3,000 times
- Four symbols - 800 times
- Three symbols - 100 times
- Two symbols - 5 times
The multipliers of other symbols vary in the same range. So, you can win 750,000 credits with the maximum bet.
Values of symbols
The remaining symbols can be subdivided into two groups, high-paying and low-paying symbols. The former are the pictures of sports animals. Wins for them start with two symbols in the combination.
The highest-paying symbols are bulldog the swimmer, cheetah the runner and hippo the gymnast. All of them pay 5, 50, 500 and 1,000 times your bet depending on how many identical pictures land on the line. In addition, these are special symbols. You can read about them below in the Special symbols section. The low-paying symbols are the pictures of balls and playing cards:
- The football balls award the multiplier of 40, 150 and 500
- The basketball balls - 25, 100 and 200
- Ace and King - 15, 40 and 100
- Queen and Jack - 10, 30 and 80
- Ten and Nine - 5, 15 and 50
The Wild Games slot machine has an unusually large number of special symbols. They can be subdivided into the Wild and bonus symbols.
The Wild symbols are pictures that can replace any other symbols, except for the bonus ones. They complete successful combinations, which otherwise would not be formed. In the slot by Playtech, the Wild symbols have a feature: by landing on the third reel, they fill it entirely and launch the bonus game. A more detailed description is found in the Bonus Games section.
The bonus symbols are the pictures of medals in three colours, bronze, silver and gold. When three or more identical medals land on the reels, the Medal Bonus is launched. You can also read about it in detail in the Bonus games section.
