If you go down to the woods today then you may well come across Poa – he’s the forest spirit here to offer players a multitude of bonus features in Wishwood, this fantasy-themed online slot from IGT; keep reading to find out how to climb the ‘luckiest tree in the forest’.
Wishwood is a five reel slot with four rows and twenty fixed paylines; a twinkling soundtrack keeps the gameplay buzzing along which takes place on a set of opaque reels through which we have a charming woodland view. Poa stands ready to help on the left hand side.
The high value symbols include Poa’s hat, an owl, a squirrel and a butterfly while the lower values are the standard 10, J, Q, K and A.
The wild is a big, gold ‘Wild’ which will replace all others to help form winning combos except for the ‘bonus’ symbol.
This can occur on any base game spin and you will see three wisps appear below the reels – pick one to reveal one of the following features:
- Wispy Wilds – up to four extra wilds are added to each reel.
- Magic Multipliers – three or four multiplier values between 2x and 10x appear between the reels and if they touch any winning combos they will multiply that win.
- Bonus Climb – the main feature, see below.
On any base game spin a winning combo will lock in place and the reels will spin again; any new winning symbols will also lock and this process will continue until there are no more wins.
This is triggered via the Mystery Picker, with three bonus symbols on reels one, three and five or with Poa adding an extra bonus symbol if there are two on the reels; you’ll now get to spin a wooden wheel which will advance you up a tree until you land on a tick – the branch you’re on determines the bonus awarded (or, if you only climb two branches, an award of 10x the total bet):
- Amber Wilds – awards seven free spins with any wilds stuck in place until the round ends.
- Enchanted Wilds – awards five free spins and any wisps landing on reels two, three or four will fill up a meter on the left hand side; as it fills, the three high value symbols gradually become wild also.
- Top Of The Tree Bonus – awards eight free spins with one high value symbol selected by you; when this symbol lands it will fill its reel and if there are others in view any symbols between them will also be transformed into matching ones.
Wishwood is a charming slot which combines bonus features and stylised animal symbols to create a very playable atmosphere; there’s always something happening and the soundtrack keeps things ticking along.
