Roaring Wilds slotRoaring Wilds is a suitable video slot for all reel fans looking to reconnect with nature since the action in the game is set in the wilderness. The slot is powered by key software supplier Playtech and offers 40 customizable paylines spread across five reels. Players who join the wild beasts that are used as symbols will reap the benefits of the game’s extra features including stacked wilds, scatters, and free games. Roaring Wilds also features the Gamble functionality allowing players to potentially double their profits on successful spins.

The graphics are well-polished as is normally the case with the majority of games on Playtech’s portfolio. The reels are positioned over a background showing a serene mountaintop, with wild animals like bears, cougars, bald eagles, and trouts appearing as symbols on the reels. Unlike many other video slots, Roaring Wilds has four rows instead of only three. The game works across all devices, desktop and mobile. When all 40 paylines are activated, you can bet as little as $0.40 or up your wagers to the amount of $16.00, which is the maximum allowed per spin.

Special Symbols

The biggest payer in Roaring Wilds is the bear which offers payouts of up to 1,000 credits for five matching symbols. The bear has another important role as it is also the stacked wild in this slot. As such, the bear can substitute for all other symbols on the reels with the exception of the scatter. The cougar pays 200 coins for five matches. As many as 100 credits are added to the balance of the players who succeed in lining five fish or five eagle symbols on activated paylines.

The gaming designers at Playtech have chosen the paw print of a wild animal (probably the above-mentioned bear) for the scatter symbol. If you hit three or more of these paw print scatters on any three reels, you are rewarded with a round of 15 free spins. Five scatters on successive reels result in a win of 50 credits. The remaining symbols all offer low-value prizes and consist of the usual playing cards Jacks through Aces.

Bonus Games and Features

As far as bonus features are concerned, Roaring Wilds has only a round of free spins to offer but this is easily activated as the three scatters land on the reels frequently. When you trigger this bonus round, the feature will load into a separate screen with a slightly different background – this time of a mountaintop bathing in the last golden rays of the setting sun. Players are entitled to 15 spins at no charge but there is also the option to earn 15 more as Roaring Wilds allows for retriggering this feature for an indefinite number of times.

It would have been nice if the developers had opted for adding a bonus side game to this nature-themed slot but one such feature is unfortunately not present in Roaring Wilds. There is, however, a Gamble functionality, for those who are willing to risk what they have won in an attempt to double their profits. This feature gets activated following any winning spin and there is the option to double your entire profit or only half of it. Five cards will appear on the screen, with the first one facing down. The purpose of the players is to select a card that beats that of the dealer in value. Otherwise, they will lose what they have won on their last successful spin.

Autoplay is also available, making it possible to play anywhere between 10 and 99 spins without clicking the spin button. Players who enjoy a quick-paced game and more action can turn on the Turbo feature which makes the reels spin faster.

Conclusion

This nature-themed slot by Playtech would hardly win any awards for originality but despite that, the game is still enjoyable as it impresses with vibrant graphics which are easy on the eye. Players will also benefit from wilds, scatters and a great round of 15 free spins. However, the size of your starting bankroll does matter in this instance as Roaring Wilds is considered a slot with a medium to high variance. Other than that, the betting limits are quite reasonable – the game is playable for $0.01 to $0.40 per line.

One of the strong points of Roaring Wilds is that it is compatible with all devices, so if you ever grow bored while waiting for your bus to arrive, you can easily kill some time spinning this slot’s reels on your tablet or smartphone. The game runs without a hitch on both iOS and Android-based devices. All in all, Roaring Wilds is a suitable Playtech title for reel spinners who prefer simplified, clean-cut games and do not mind higher variance.
