Wild Falls slot review (Play’n GO)
The Wild Falls video slot is set on the edge of a large waterfall. The plan was to release dozens of new online slots in 2019, so it is always interesting to see if an increased quantity will not lower quality. Wild Falls certainly lives up to their promise and our expectation: it is a fun and innovative slot with one big trump: a maximum multiplier of 125 x.Play Now
Play’n GO plans to take over the baton from Netent in 2019 definitively, so it seems.
There is a standard set of reels in front of the waterfall, and there is an extra reel with wilds on top of the waterfall.
At random moments the waterfall causes one or more wilds to fall. Hence the name Wild Falls.
Collect 3 wilds, and you win the bonus round.
Sounds cool, right?
How does the Wild Falls slot work?
There are 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols, and you play with 20 fixed paylines.
Betting is done from $€ 0.20 per spin, which rises to $€ 100 per spin.
The variance of Wild Falls is medium to high, and the theoretical payout rate is 96.50 %: excellent!
The maximum payout can skyrocket to as high as 10,000 x your total bet.
Symbols and payouts
This slot has a treasure hunter/gold prospector theme going on, and the symbols reflect it.
The wooden barrels are both scatters and wilds and can only be found on the middle 3 reels.
The premium symbols are a bag full of gold, a gold pan, a shovel with a pickaxe, and a miner’s lamp, all tools of the trade.
Spin 5 (similar) symbols on an active payline and bring home payouts between 10 x and 25 x the total bet.
The low-paying symbols consist of the card symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A: these yield between 2 x and 6 x the total bet for a 5-of-a-kind.
Once in a while, a Gold Rush emerges. Now you can land huge wins.
The wilds now get a multiplier of 2 x up to 5 x.
Do you have a multiplier of 5 x on 3 wilds?
Then the total multiplier becomes an astronomical 125 x.
If a wooden barrel falls on the reels, you get a Rapid Respin.
The barrel stays put, and you get a free respin.
It is now up to you to add 1 or 2 tons.
Free Spins Bonus
If you manage to spin a scattered wooden barrel on reels 2, 3, and 4, you win the free spins bonus.
During the free spins bonus, you get unlimited free spins as long as wooden barrels remain on the reels.
After every spin, the barrels drop one spot down on the grid, so you need to land extra wild barrels to buy more time.
Our verdict on the Wild Falls slot
The gold mining theme is well thought out, the game pace and flow are good, and the Wild Falls mechanism with the falling barrels is a welcome surprise.
Thanks to the Gold Rush feature, with some extra big multipliers, the possibility of hitting substantial wins is always lingering, ready to explode.
