The addition of a mad scientist to any situation is always going to make it more interesting and here our crazy professor has invented The Wild Machine, an online slot from Pragmatic Play which tempts players with the Wonder Wheel feature which can award one of two free spins features.
The Wild Machine is a five reel slot with five rows and forty fixed paylines; all the action takes place in the lab of our unhinged friend as he tries to turn base metals into gold. Strange machinery is dotted around as our man floats on a platform on the right hand side.
The high value symbols include the professor, a big book, a vial of purple liquid, a bag, a watch and a golden key; playing card symbols in various colours make up the lower values. The big ‘Wild’ is wild and it will replace all standard symbols to help make winning matches; the big ‘Scatter’ is the scatter icon.
On any spin the 5×5 play area may change into the one shown below, unlocking those single positions on all four sides to add two extra reels. Reels one, four and seven now turn completely wild for this spin.
Wonder Wheel & Free Spins
Landing three of the scatter symbols on reels two, three and four will trigger the Wonder Wheel and you’ll get one spin of this to determine a cash prize or free spins. More than one cash prize can be won as the wheel stops then turns slowly back the other way, selecting more prize segments.
Landing on the free spins segments offers the choice of two options:
- Gold Foundry Free Spins – awards eight free spins with between two and five reels completely wild.
- Diamond Forge Free Spins – awards five free spins on the alternate grid layout with guaranteed wild symbols on reels one, four and seven; wilds will freeze in place until the spins end.
There’s plenty to like about The Wild Machine aside from its colourful good looks; the Wonder Wheel seems to trigger regularly although that still won’t guarantee any free spins of course. The changing grid size is a nice touch too.
