Wild Times Slot

As the staple providers of classic fruit machines to the British pub scene for more than thirty years, it's perhaps no surprise at all that Barcrest as a software provider has become something of a specialist in the classic fruit machine genre at the online casino sites too.

On the surface, Wild Times might feel like more of the same, but in fairness, if you like your classic 3 reel fruit machines, Barcrest have tweaked this new online slot game to give you a little extra excitement and enjoyment from your fruit themed spins.

Although Wild Times could rest on its graphical laurels, fortunately for us, it has the go to match the show, with multiplying wilds, win both ways and a new take on Barcrest's big bet feature all adding to the simple fun.

Theme

I hear you, the fruit theme has been done to death over the years, or has it? You see slot machine features change all the time, as do available graphics and audio effects. What may have been a leading game in a genre 10 years ago, can easily play and feel horribly dated today.

Wild Times banks on this premise and offers a new level of graphics for the Barcrest studio, these colours are both very deep and vibrant, this is a whole level above titles like the classic Wild Knights, we got a hint of this in Black Magic Fruits recently but even that slot falls behind Wild Times as a finished product.

This game feels almost like a land based Vegas style video slot rather than a simple 3 reel fruity, oh, and on the subject of casino slots, you finally get some animated big win sequences. I realise this may not be groundbreaking, but even if this was a stock Barcrest game, the addition of new graphics, new audios and the win sequences would all improve playability on their own.

Features

Like many of Barcrests other 3 reel, 3-row titles this is a 0.10 credit minimum bet and a 500.00 max win, this isn't aimed at the high rollers for sure, however, in this game, using Barcrests big bet feature will open up 27 active paylines. We are used to the big bet feature affecting RTP in these games but I think the way it is done here is very clever as it turns the game into an any ways pay machine.

The wild symbols are still fixed, but they offer a new feature too in the form of a lucky spinning wheel bonus when a wild lands this will randomly offer 5/6/8 or even 10x, land more than one and these multipliers stack which can add real excitement to what is otherwise a standard fixed wild symbol.

Summary

If you like your classic Bars, melons, cherries and the like, Wild Times is going to cover all your traditional base requirements for a fruit game. Where it excels, is that it is adding not just new gameplay features but also a new audio and visual experience for the classic fruity whilst losing none of its playability. Add in that the game is fully mobile compatible and optimised for mobile play, and we think Barcrest have a winner on their hands. Are you ready for a wild time?
