Wild Scarabs is a 3×5 reel slot with 243 ways to win from Microgaming. It sports an all too familiar Ancient Egyptian theme, but the special features do differ from other similar slots out there. There’s the new Wild Deal™ feature that releases extra wilds during a non-winning spin to guarantee a win, a generous helping of free spins, as well as more hidden treasure with Stashed Wilds™. Wild Scarabs can be played across all platforms and mobile gamers will be especially pleased to know you can enjoy the game in both portrait and landscape mode.
- Being a 243-way slot there’s no payline structure and wins are formed as long as matching symbols line up in adjacent rows from left to right.
- High value symbols comprise of famous Egyptian icons such as Ankh, Anubis and the Eye of Ra.
- As suggested by the name of the slot, the scarab is the wild and aids the formation of wins by replacing all other symbols except the scatter which is represented by a staff head (Isis)
- Wild Deal
This feature is triggered when a wild lands on reel three during a non-winning spin. Up to four additional wilds are added to form a guaranteed win.
- Free Spins
Landing three or more scatters anywhere in sight activates ten free spins. Note that this feature cannot be retriggered.
- Stashed Wilds
During the free spins round all wilds that did not form part of a winning combination are collected and added back to the reels once you have a minimum of three to give you a guaranteed win.
We feel the Egyptian theme is a little worn through but we do like the additional features this slot has that makes it stand out a little. The Wild Deal feature triggers quite often while the free spins are a little harder to come by. We would have loved to see multipliers though. Wild Scarabs offers a handsome max payout of 104,000 coins and has an RTP of 96.28%
