All of the action in this title centres around the free spins bonus round and the expanding wild symbol.
Once you have landed 3 or more scatter symbols, you will be awarded up to 20 free spins that can be retriggered with the appearance of more scatters that grant 2 extra fee spins each. While this feature is active, expanded wild symbols will become sticky and remain locked in place for its duration.
The Wild Life doesn’t particularly stand out in its category, but it delivers adequate action and potential. The game’s African theme is colourful and well-drawn, and I thought the animal print on the card royals was a nice touch. Other than that, there isn’t much to say about the visuals that pale in comparison to some similarly-themed titles.
The bonus features are where the game gets good. The regular appearance of expanding wilds means the chance of a big win is elevated and the free spins round can be particularly lucrative if you have several stacked wilds stuck to the reels, with a top possible jackpot of $500 000 up for grabs. If you would like to expand your African horizons, you could also try out Serengeti Gold or Africa X UP.
