Wild Run is an African-themed online slot game by software developer NextGen Gaming. And it’s relatively simple looking as far as the design and graphics quality goes. The game takes place in the evening so you can see the setting sun in the backdrop, and against it are the silhouettes of tall trees and elephants. Be sure to also leave the sound on for the powerful backing track – we think it makes a great addition to the overall gaming experience. As for the symbols on the reels, these mainly feature various African animals such as the rhinos, water buffalo, lions, and leopards. In addition to them, there are four lower value playing card suit symbols.

This brings us to the game’s layout, which is quite conventional. It features a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows. However, these come with a generous total of 243 ways win. Needless to say, you will not have the opportunity to adjust these or regulate the paylines in any way. But stakes are also within a fairly generous range. They start at a reasonable minimum bet of 30p per single spin while the maximum bet towers above at a hefty £750 per spin, leaving some good wiggle room for high rollers as well.

Special Features

Wild

The most important symbol on these reels is the game’s Wild. Naturally, it pictures the lion as king of the jungle and it also offers the highest payouts of all the other symbols. What makes it special is the fact that it will be able to substitute for any of those other symbols when forming winning combinations. Better yet, there are no exceptions as to the symbols it will be able to substitute for. There is one catch, though; the Wild doesn’t appear on the reels during the base game. In order for it to start partaking in gameplay you will have to first activate the On-A-Roll Feature.

On A Roll Feature

By landing any winning combination, you will trigger the On-A-Roll Feature, and that is when the meter to the left of the reels will light up and spring into action. After your first win, you will receive a respin with a 2x multiplier on any Wild wins.

In addition, the Wild symbol will be added to the two outermost reels (1 and 5). If that respin lands you a win as well, it will trigger yet another respin. Only now the Wilds will appear on reels 1, 2, 4, and 5. In addition, they will benefit from a 3x multiplier, and if as a result of this respin you also land a winning combo, this will trigger the Freespins Feature.

Freespins

During the Freespins Feature the Wild symbol will be able to appear on all five reels. Furthermore, any wins in which the Wilds take part will be subject to a 5x multiplier.

You will notice that the meter on the side of the reels will now be filled by 4 star icons – you will receive an unlimited number of freespins so long as you still have star icons on the screen.

These will disappear with each non-winning spin, however, and obviously, there is no possibility to retrigger the feature.

Verdict

Wild Run is a very agreeable and entertaining online slot game, as simplistic as it is. The special feature is different and unique, making it especially attractive, and it’s a medium variance offering so you will get to trigger the freespins at regular intervals.
