Wild Run Slots

Are you wild about animals? Or even wild about wilds? Whatever your motivations for playing this NextGen slot, be they monetary or animal, there’s something here for you. Primarily there’s the prospect of a big bunch of free spins with a multiplier thrown in, but over and above that, there’s the lure of the African savannah and all the incredible creatures who call it their home.

NextGen certainly aren’t the first developer to tackle the big beasts of Africa – safari remains an enduring video slot theme – but they’ve released one of the most inviting games within that domain. NextGen’s slots tend to look the business, and Wild Run doesn’t disappoint. A series of big cats and other majestic creatures roam its reels, while a percussive jungle soundtrack helps to set the scene.

Jungle Is Massive

Hunting animals is deemed to be in poor taste these days, but hunting big jackpots is still fair game. Thus you’re entitled to go all out in Wild Run, chasing down animals on the reels in the knowledge that victory doesn’t have to come at the expense of their lives. To achieve the sort of bumper wins that justify you getting out of bed and firing up Wild Run on a weekend, you’ll need the On-A-Roll feature to be at its brilliant best, for it’s the gatekeeper to free spins and much more in this slot.

First though there’s the formalities to take care of: setting the bet level. Wild Run is a 243 ways slot with a bet that can be set between 0.30 and 750.00 per spin. Plenty of scope for playing as big or small as you like then. On the maximum bet settings you’ll need a serious bankroll to make it to the advanced features in this game, but your reward, for sticking it out, will be a major payday once those multiplier-boosted free spins kick in.

Rolling Reels

In the base game, a minimum of 3 identical symbols on a payline will be enough to secure a win, be they leopard, buffalo or any of the other big beasts that call this game their home. The rhino is worth up to 80 for 5 on a line while the elephant is worth as much as 100. The way to boost these modest sums is with the aid of On-A-Roll, NextGen’s proprietary feature which kicks in after each win. When this happens, a respin will be awarded, with wilds appearing on reels 1 and 5. Win again at this stage and the sum will be doubled thanks to a 2x multiplier. That’s when On-A-Roll will trigger again, with wilds now added to all reels except 3. There’ll also be a 3x multiplier applied.

A win at this point will send you into the free spins feature; conversely a loss will send you down a level on the On-A-Roll feature. It’s a simple but highly effective mechanism, one that spearheads all of the action in Wild Run. In execution, it’s surprisingly easy to trigger free spins, even if the resultant sums to be won aren’t as high as you might expect. Free spins continue until you notch up 4 barren spins in succession. Any wins you accrue that were generated with the aid of wilds will be accompanied by a 5x multiplier.

Similar Adventures Out There

If you’d like to try another African themed slot to see how it shapes up to NextGen’s effort, you could play something like Big 5 Safari by Nektan. It’s a 20 payline slot with an RTP of 95% and medium to high volatility. Up to 12 free spins can be won. For something a little more basic, you could try NetEnt’s Safari Madness, which has just 8 paylines but an RTP of 96.7%. Finally there’s Africa Wild, a 20 payline slot from Logispin which has 5 or more free spins to be won across its 20 paylines.

One to Run To

Wild Run is another fine looking slot from NextGen. The audio and graphics are both top-notch, while the On-A-Roll feature is cleverly deployed. This is the sort of game where it feels comparatively easy to advance to free spins, which will come as a relief if you’ve been playing the game on its maximum bet settings of 750. Catch Wild Run on a good day and you’ve every chance of scoring a substantial win aided by those all-important multipliers.
