Wild Worlds Slot Overview
Not all superheroes wear capes, so the saying goes. In this city of the future, a ragtag bunch of superhero birds battles it out with slimy monsters to save the day. When we say battle we are not using the word metaphorically. Wild Worlds slot uses actual battles between the forces of good and bad during an extra feature.
NetEnt have once again employed their Avalanche game engine in conjunction with a Candy Crush like rule system. This has resulted in a fast-paced game, that has multiple ways of creating winning combinations that keep on winning again and again. It may be slightly confusing at first, especially if you have not come up against this style of slot before. It can even feel a bit gimmicky, to begin with, but the theme grows on you, as do the loveable cartoon superheroes.
Wild World slot starts off with a brief cartoon intro which sets the scene before the battle can commence. The main game takes place in the heroes’ headquarters while in the background giant beasts pass by and buildings topple to the ground. It’s up to our heroes to save the day!
The Wild Worlds slot game grid is made up of 5 rows and 5 reels and sits to the side of the screen beside the gang. Every now and then one of them will get up if there are no winners and destroy all the symbols except the scatters and one particular colour.
Those whose daring and bravery see them survive the battle can collect up to 2,500x the stake. Bet levels can be changed from 0.20 up to 40 coins per spin, so the top payout can be substantial, to say the least!
The game has been given a medium Volatility and slapped with an RTP rating of 96.47%. This means that there is a satisfying number of wins sprinkled here and there as you work your way to the big one.
Symbols and gameplay
The first thing to get your head around is the Avalanche game engine. Three or more of a kind are needed to create a winning combination either vertically or horizontally. When that happens, the winning symbols disappear and new ones fall into the gaps. This can then trigger an avalanche of winners until the wins stop landing. Then, the entire grid falls out the bottom to be replaced with 25 fresh symbols. It is similar to Candy Crush with winners triggering winners and so on, and is exceptionally stirring when several winners run into the next and rack up profit!
The green, pink and blue symbols are the low paying ones, with 3 worth 5 coins, and 5 worth 80 coins. The symbols with the Hero’s faces on are up next are worth between 20 and 300 coins each. When there is a winning combination of Hero faces on the board, then any other of the same type of symbol instantly turns into a Wild. This ups the chances of cascading wins and is a great wee feature to have.
The top dogs of the paytable are the Wild and the High Win Symbol. The Wild can substitute for any symbol but the scatter and both are worth between 100 and 2000 coins each – so be on the lookout for those.
The last symbol to look for is the S. This is the scatter and three of these, anywhere on the board will kick off 8 free spins.
Multiple free spin features
When the free spins are triggered, there are three different kinds, or Worlds, that the heroes will find themselves in. Each one has its own specific bonus aspect. The Fire Lands feature Random Wilds, the Ice World has Heavy Wilds, and the Dark Forest has Spreading Wilds.
Our birdy heroes now find themselves in one of these worlds battling bad guys! The first round will have them up against three captains. If they manage to dispatch these fiends then they will find themselves up against a Boss. Winning combinations give a particular hero a chance to inflict damage on the baddies until they have been defeated or the free spins run out. When each bad guy that is defeated rewards are added to the reels which are the wilds specific to each world.
The battle scenes are lively and tense, and an outstanding addition to the slot and its story. It is extremely satisfying when a baddy is sent packing and a bundle of wilds litter the reels boosting the potential of that round. Hats off to NetEnt for coming up with yet another innovative and unusual game feature. NetEnt has built up a distinguished reputation in the gaming community for their creativity and craftsmanship and Wild Worlds is definitely a fine example of this.
What makes Wild Worlds slot so special?
We like how the Wild Worlds slot is more than spinning reels and having a good time. It’s like playing a part in a movie and it all starts with the intriguing intro. No doubt you will skip this after viewing it once or twice, but it sets the mood and sparks a lively level of interest.
Our heroes play a big part in the magic too. Each one possesses their own individuality and a special ability that will quickly find a place in your heart. When the free spins are activated and battle commences you will be rooting for the good guys to fight hard and overcome their adversaries. Winning coins in the process doesn’t hurt either. The Boss’s are particularly difficult to overcome so one battle probably won’t be enough. Rematches will be required and the desire to triumph grows and keeps you hooked.
The graphics and sound effects are of an exceptionally high standard as we have come to expect from top tier developer NetEnt. This feast for the senses has been wedded to the Avalanche mechanic which suits the theme and works better than it does in some other NetEnt games. All up, this is an original and lively romp through the future with a bunch of unlikely heroes that will have you coming back for more in an effort to overcome the bad guys.
