Wild Frames gameplay & features

Wild Frames is a real Grid slot, a game genre that is dominated by Play’n GO.

Think of successful slots like Gemix, Reactoonz, Moon Princess, and Honey Rush.

The game is played on a 7 x 7 grid of symbols, and you make winning combinations by spinning clusters of 5 or more of the same symbols.

Winning combinations disappear and make way for new symbols so that chain reactions can occur.

Meanwhile, you can earn extra boosters by collecting a certain number of winning symbols.

This mechanism creates a beautiful build-up of excitement and tension, where you never know exactly how far you will get and what you will earn.

Bets start at $€ 0.20 and run up to a maximum of $€ 100 per spin.

We estimate the variance to be in the medium to high range.

The theoretical payout rate is 96.50%. That’s fine, but do be careful.

Online casinos offer a version of Wild Frames with a (significantly) lower Return to Player.

This difference can run up to 2% of the total Return to Player, so that’s a substantial difference.

Symbols & payouts

The symbols perfectly match the retro fruit slot machine theme.

The “W” symbol is wild and replaces all other symbols.

Play’n GO has chosen red 7’s (the highest symbol), diamonds, stars, and bells as premium symbols

The card symbols’ hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs are traditionally low symbols.


Wild Frames

This game revolves around the so-called Wild Frames.

How could it be otherwise, with a name like that?

Those “Wild Frames” work as follows: as soon as a wild drops on the screen, it becomes a wild frame.

The wilds can also leave behind extra multipliers.

Only later, when you reach the end of the extra boosters (with 80 or more winning symbols), these wild frames are changed into wild symbols.

Mystery wilds

You can also get mystery wilds after a non-winning spin: between 4 and 6 at a time. This booster is convenient to kickstart a winning streak.

Form winning combinations, earn extra boosters

Creating as many winning combinations in a row as possible that’s what it’s all about with Wild Frames.

The more symbols, the more boosters, and the bigger the final prize can be.

There are four booster levels:

Transform (after 20 collected symbols): one of the low symbols is changed into a high symbol.

Wild Card (after 40 symbols): 3 to 6 extra wilds are placed on the playing field.

Shatter: (after 60 symbols): all low symbols are removed.

Wild Frames: (after 80 symbols): all wild frames become wild.

Every additional 10 symbols also award an extra wild frame – handy for getting those Super Big Wins.

Wild Frames can award you up to 7,000 x your bet.

However, you will have to save many wild frames and massive multipliers as well, which means you need an insane amount of winning symbols.


What do we think of Wild Frames?

Play’n GO is the absolute king of Grid slots and has still managed to surprise us positively.

The theme is super cool, the performance is entirely up to par, and the final booster, where you earn the big bucks, is a delicious treat.

Think of a “Gargantoon”-like apotheosis, where all the frames and multipliers you’ve saved together suddenly turn into wilds, with or without multipliers.

In short, that sequence can award huge amounts of cash in stunning fireworks.

It’s a beautiful feeling when you know you’ve made the finish line, but you don’t know exactly how much you will be transferred to your account.
