Play’n GO are placing you deep in the snowy wilderness, where only predators can survive the cold. Will you survive this Wild North slot machine and conquer the wild? Or will frostbite be your only memory?
All set deep in the wintery nothern landscape, these 5×4 reels are nothing short of beautiful. The detail that has gone into the background, and the beautifully drawn animal symbols, such as wolves, owls, bears, lynx and reindeer, are nothing short of breathtaking.
The action is a little slower, softer, like falling snow that melts in moments. You don’t get the thrill of a big paying winning combination of symbols lining up during the base game. The wins that you do get tend to be anything from less than your bet, to around 2 – 5x at most. Nothing amazing there… or so you’d think.
But don’t let that those little wins put you off from trying this Wild North game. Out of nowhere, that softly falling snow can turn into a raging snowstorm of wins.
The potential is here, lurking deep in the regularly triggered seven bonus games.
This is where this game starts to get exciting. Ignore the base game, as that’s simply there as a stepping stone to keep your balance topped up a little, and to get you to trigger the Northern Lights Bonus Game.
We have to say that it’s relatively easy to trigger compared with some Play’n GO slots, which take a good 200 spins. Here we’ve gone through periods of triggering them every 20 – 30 spins or so, and other times had to spin a good 50 – 75.
So depending on how the game is feeling, you can expect a bonus at least every 50 spins on average.
How do you trigger them? Simply find the Northern Lights scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you’ll get taken to a bonus wheel. Here there are 7 different symbols each representing the bonus games we are about to describe below.
The wheel will then randomly spin, and whichever lights up, will be your bonus game to play. A little like in the Leander Games Potion Factory slot.
There are seven games, each a little different, from free spins with multipliers, to larger symbols, to stacked wilds and more. So here’s each one in more detail.
We have to mention the Wild North mobile slot game, just because unlike other slot machines you’ll find that are better online, we actually prefer the mobile version.
You get something a little extra, like snow falling in the background and an uncluttered user experience, which immerses you deeper into the game.
The online slot, even though they have the same game play and bonus features, lacks a few extra tweaks that make it truly stand out from the rest of the Play’n GO video slots.
Well, with a betting range of 0.20 up to 50 per spin it allows nearly all types of betters to have a go. With those bonus games triggering frequently you have a good chance of winning something decent, especially when you get the wild north explorer bonus.
A return to player rate of 96.55% also helps this medium variance slot provide you with winning combinations, even if you are just playing to catch the scatters.
With beautiful graphics, animations and a backing track that’s easy to listen to, these 40 paylines are definitely worth a spin.
It might not give you the thrill of a lifetime, but it will provide you with a decent session of entertainment.Play Now at Guts »
