It’s not often you find a sports themed slot that manages to blend exciting gameplay with a unique sports design but Wild Games manages it easily.
Available on William Hill Casino this games design is minimalistic yet appealing as it features a bright blue background and transparent reels. A great touch is the various symbols inside the reels as they contain various references to sport. For example, there’s Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, footballs, basketballs, trophies and Cheetah, Bulldog and Hippo athletes.
This 5 reel, 25 payline slot game features all the fun of an Olympic sporting event from the comfort of your own home. You can also easily alter the number of paylines and size of your bet at will by using the onscreen buttons. Also, the betting range in this game is pretty varied as you can wager from 1p to £2,500 a game. There’s even an option to spin the reels manually or set them running for a fixed number of rounds with the handy ‘Auto Play’ button.
To keep things interesting this slot game also has a bunch of fun features and bonuses to play around with. For starters there’s Wilds, shown as trophy symbols, which substitute for all other symbols apart from the medal Scatters.
Where things start to get interesting is the bonus rounds, which can all be launched by landing one of the animal squares across the entire 3rd reel. First up is the Freestyle Swim Bonus, this round has you picking one of three Bulldogs that are competing in a swimming event. You’ll win 8 free games plus if they come 1st they’ll cause Gold medals to appear in the reels that will let you earn 4 extra free spins. Also if they come 2nd or 3rd you’ll get Silver or Bronze medals that will give you either 3 or 2 extra free spins respectively.
Next is the 100m Dash, similar to the Bulldog round you’ll have to pick a Cheetah, your chosen cat will then race around a track and depending on the medal they get you’ll win a special Wild prize. For example, if it’s gold you’ll get expanding Wilds, land silver and one symbol at random will be turned into a Clone Wild and if it’s bronze you’ll have additional Wilds to use.
Another feature you can unlock is the Balance Beam Bonus; here you choose one of three routines for a hippo to perform. Your routine is then scored by the judges and you’ll earn 8 free spins and a multiplier of up to 10x.
Finally there’s the prize pick round, land three or more medals on the reels and you’ll get to pick one to win a multiplier prize of up to 100x.
Overall this slot game is absolutely brilliant, it’s got a minimalistic design and there’s tons of different bonuses to play with that guarantee you’ll be entertained for hours on end.
