Wild Tome of the Woods slot review (Quickspin)
Wild Tome of the Woods is played in a mysterious and beautiful forest where the animals live in great harmony. Wild Tome of the Woods is a straightforward slot, something we are not used to when Quickspin releases a slot. With this slot, forget about free spins, multipliers and other bonuses where you get additional paylines. This slot only has one bonus feature, and even that one feature feels a bit simplistic – more like a mini-feature than a stand-alone bonus feature.Play Now
A “Tome” is a somewhat uncommon English name for a book. A Wild Tome is a book where wilds are the main characters.
Once in a while, a magical book appears on the reels.
When it opens, get ready for lots of wilds.
Graphically, this slot looks stunning, which is one of the strengths of all Quickspin slots.
Believe it or not, they always manage to make their symbols and backgrounds a bit sharper, more colourful, and more lively than other slot providers.
How does the Wild Tome of the Woods slot work?
You play this slot with 26 paylines, which is unusual. You play with 6 reels with 4 rows of symbols.
With such a large playing field, we would expect more paylines.
Bets start at $€0.10 per spin – ideal for a (novice) slot player who wants to try out an online slot without too much risk.
Higher bets are also possible: the maximum bet is $€100 per spin.
The maximum prize, theoretical RTP, and variance of Wild Tome of the Woods
The payout percentage is also fine: 96.28% is a perfectly acceptable RTP. It is slightly higher than the average RTP of online slots.
The maximum win is a whopping 1,000 x the total bet.
You need a full screen of wilds to win it when you play the bonus feature.
Like most of the other slots of Quickspin, the variance of Wild Tome of the Woods is low to medium.
You can often win bonus features, but they don’t pay out that much in most cases.
If you get a prize that tops 200x the total bet, you should be more than happy.
Symbols and payouts
The wild symbol, which only appears during the bonus feature (which we explain further below), replaces all other symbols.
If you manage to spin 6 wilds on an active payline, you get a win of 20 x the total bet.
The premium symbols consist of beautifully designed Owls, Foxes, and Newts (or frogs).
If you spin 6 of those on a payline, you win a prize between 5 x and 16 x the total bet.
As low symbols, Quickspin has created three coloured Vials. You get a win of 2 x to 3 x the bet for a 6-of-a-kind.
Wild Tome Bonus Feature
As soon as the magic book appears on one of the reels, it folds open and begins to browse.
On the page where the book stops, the symbol changes into a wild symbol. So if, for example, you have 5 of those symbols on your screen, these become 5 wilds.
It is possible to get more magic books. In that case, you get more wilds.
The ultimate goal is to get an entire screen filled with wilds only.
It is a nice bonus feature, but unfortunately, it is the only one in this slot!
We feel that Quickspin could have done much more with this beautiful theme.
If, for example, a free spins bonus would be activated with one or two books. That would have been much more exciting.
Our verdict on Wild Tome of the Woods
Usually, we are great fans of Quickspin slots. This time though, this fairy tale has not convinced us.
In terms of features, Wild Tome of the Woods has far too little depth.
There is only one (mini) bonus feature, which becomes repetitive. It doesn’t give you this special feeling.
Moreover, the prizes you can win are not spectacular.
A bit of a blow!
3 out of 5 stars.
