Wild Times is an incredibly flashy and visually satisfying online slot game by leading UK game developer Barcrest. Though it comes with a theme that implies simplicity and lack of anything over-the-top, Wild Times actually brings a lot to the table. But before we head over in that direction, let’s start off with the graphics. They are of exceptionally great quality, giving classic symbols a very modern and glossy look. In fact, the symbols you will see feature the common fruit icons like cherries, plums, lemons, plus the familiar BARs, bells, and star symbols. The red star symbol is the most lucrative offering payouts of up to 500x your line bet.
As for the layout, it stays true to the retro genre featuring a grid of only 3 reels and 3 rows. There are 5 paylines available for you to set your bet on, and as is most commonly the case with games by this provider, the paylines are fixed and not subject to adjustment. Stakes here are within the typical range, only they start a little higher considering the number of paylines. Namely, the minimum wager amount is a total of 10p per single spin and the maximum will set players back some £500 per spin.
Like most Barcrest offerings, Wild Times also comes with a Big Bet Mode. Here, you will have the option to purchase 5 spins for a fixed price. To be more precise, you will have four different Big Bet options, starting with the minimum of £10. This option will increase the number of paylines from 5 to 27.
You can also head to the more expensive option of £15 which will also have 27 paylines, but on top of that, the Wild Wheel will be able to award multipliers from 3x to 6x. The remaining two options will both also ensure you have 27 ways to win, but each one will offer a higher multiplier opportunity from the Wild Wheel. Hence, the multipliers in the £20 Big Bet will range from 4x to 8x, and the £25 Big Bet will see them span from 5x to 10x.
Believe it or not, this game’s main attraction happens to be its Wild symbol. It can substitute for any of the other icons on the reels without any exceptions. That way it will help complete winning combinations and boost your wins. However, that is not its biggest attraction. Besides fulfilling its Wildly duties, this symbol will also be responsible for activating the Wild Wheel.
For that to occur, all that needs to happen is for the Wild to partake in any winning sequence. At that point you will see the Wild turn into a small Wheel of Fortune and spin to reveal a multiplier value. This multiplier value can be anything from 2x to 5x, and, naturally, it will apply to the winning spin that triggered the feature to begin with.
Keep in mind, however, that the Wild symbol doesn’t appear just anywhere. It can only land on the reels 2 and 3.
Wild Times certainly surprises with the kinds of features is boasts, let alone its visuals. But if you’re willing to take this title on, be fair warned about its high variance. With that in mind, you can also win pretty handsomely with this game.
