Slot Machine Shifting Wilds

Slot Machine Shifting Wilds

Shifting wilds were first introduced online by the casino software provider Playtech. They are very similar to sticky wilds in that they remain on the reels for a certain number of spins after they first appear. However, instead of remaining where they initially landed on the reels, they shift to other areas.

Generally speaking, shifting wilds tend to appear on the last reel of most slot machines more than any other location on the reels. Whenever a shifting wild symbol appears on a spin, it will typically shift one position in any direction for a set number of subsequent spins. What is most exciting about the prospect of playing casino games that feature shifting wilds is that these symbols can often help players create some generous winning combinations that would not have been possible had the shifting wilds not been activated.

In some instances, free spins and other slots features are associated with shifting wilds and will be awarded in addition to any payouts generated by shifting wilds that appear in winning combinations. And in other instances, players may even have the ability to interact with certain games by deciding where to place the shifting wild symbols.

The game below, which is called Dolphin Cash by Playtech, is one of the most popular online slot machines featuring shifting wilds.

Slot Machine Shifting Reels

In addition to shifting wilds, many online video slots these days feature shifting reels. Thought to have been created by the casino software provider Net Entertainment, shifting reels give players an opportunity to boost their winnings whenever shifting reels are activated.

While shifting reels are activated differently from game to game, there's no denying that they can turn a basic payout into an extremely rewarding one and that they can even turn a losing spin into a winning one.

The game below, which is called Robin Hood: Shifting Riches by NetEnt, is one of the most frequently played online slot machines featuring shifting reels.
