Wild Gambler is a relatively new offering from Ash Gaming, the Playtech subsidiary already responsible for a number of excellent online slot machines. Previous favourites of ours have included Fairest Of Them All, Triple Inferno and Angel or Devil and each new virtual machine has brought something slightly different to the virtual table.
Wild Gambler is an African safari themed slot which transports the player to the dark continent via some great graphics and atmospheric sounds. Experience the sounds of calling birds and roaring wild animals as you play your way through the numerous features.
This is a five reel machine with twenty paylines which is something of an industry standard but which in no way detracts from the overall user experience. Symbols are 10s, Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces plus a whole herd of wild animals including rhinos, cheetahs and flamingos but the most sought after is the lion – the lion provides the biggest payout and also acts as wildcard when necessary.
An interesting feature of Wild Gambler is the ability to lock certain bonus symbols into place for the duration of spin. For someone familiar with a UK fruit machine this is similar to the ‘hold’ button but in this case you’ll have to pay a little extra to enable what is called ‘Lock and Spin’. Wild Gambler will tell you how much the service will cost you so it’s easy enough to cancel the feature if you don’t feel it represents value.
Meerkats are always a welcome addition to any online slot and Wild Gambler thankfully features these cute creatures in an important role. You will obtain free spins if anywhere between one and five meerkats appears on the symbols; even better, if you have any lion (wild) symbols locked in they will stay locked for the duration of the free spins. If any new lions appear, they too will become locked.
There’s a pretty healthy jackpot of 1000 coins for Wild Gambler and because the house edge is just a low 3.33%, we think this slot is worthy of a big thumbs up from our dedicated slots reviewers.
