The Wild Life Online Slot

I was surrounded by Africa’s most majestic creatures in The Wild Life Online Slot by IGT. While the graphics felt a bit dated for a 2017 title, I still enjoyed the gameplay which featured animals like lions, giraffes, and elephants as symbols. Expanding wilds make winning easy and the game’s maximum prize of $500k makes this safari adventure well worth a try.

RTP and Variance

This is a game with high volatility, meaning you can expect larger wins to land occasionally with some smaller wins along the way. The 96.16% RTP is just above average for an online slot and indicates a potentially good return on your wagers.

How to Play

The Wild Life features straightforward gameplay and a basic format. With no Autoplay option, you will have to spin manually, using the button in the bar below the reels. Also located here are the betting controls and the paytable button. This is a pay-both-ways game, so wins can be landed from left to right, and right to left.

Bonus Features

Expanding Wild

The wild symbol is a snarling lion that stands in for any other symbol, except the scatter. Whenever a wild symbol lands, it will expand to cover the entire reel, giving you a big boost to your winning chances. You can also find this game-enhancing feature in other great titles like The Bandit and the Baron.

Free Spins

The bonus round kicks off when you land 3 or more scatters on the same spin.

For 3, 4, or 5 scatters, you will get 10, 15, or 20 free spins, respectively. Now, whenever wild symbols land and expand, they will stay locked in place until the end of the feature and every scatter symbol that lands will grant you 2 extra free spins, up to a maximum of 200.

Free Play or Demo Play

It’s always a good idea to check out an online slot before you put any real cash down. Our free demo makes this conveniently possible. You will find an endless supply of credits available so you can explore every corner of this game before putting your money on the line.


The Wild Life slot won’t win any design awards, but solid features and a big top prize make it a must-play with a decent prize. The free spins explode with potential, thanks to the sticky expanding wilds and the extra free spins that come with every new scatter. I was impressed by the $500k jackpot possible with this game, but as far as African-themed slots go, Serengeti Gold and 9 Masks of Fire Hyperspins are two of my top picks.
