Great American Wilds Slot
Great American Wilds is one of Greentube’s new titles, a game where they explore the North American wildlife, using a fairly large game area and plenty of active lines. The slot’s going to benefit from the presence of a couple of great features, among other things.
Expect to get 5x4 reels spinning in Great American Wilds, and they will offer you 50 paylines. It’s a slot which offers medium-high volatility, and which gets five progressive jackpots that it can trigger for some of its players, or regular payouts of up to 500x if we’re looking only at the regular spins it delivers. On the list of features, they added an Epic Xtra Stax, plus access to free spins and wilds. Finally, with a 95.17% RTP, there is certainly room for better in this game.
Betting and Prizes
Setting up the bet does need to take into account all available lines, so you can’t wager less than $0.50 per spin. On the other hand, you are able to wager a lot more, even up to $100 per spin, using $2 for each line.
Of note here, would be the slot’s progressive jackpots. There are five different ones that you can trigger, though obviously only the top one has a bigger value. Eagle Jackpot starts from 1,500x the stake, while Grizzly is at 500x or more, Bison starts from 200x, Mustang from 75x and Cougar from 75x the stake as well.
The second best rewards that the slot will offer, via its own combinations of symbols, will be reaching a maximum value of 500x the stake, in either the regular or free spins. The slot’s volatility is medium-high, while the RTP is at 95.17%. Out of everything here, I’m the least satisfied with the mix of 500x payouts with the high volatility, while the RTP is so low.
Great American Wilds Slot Features
There are two different feature symbols that the game will use, one being the wild, the other a bonus/scatter.
Wilds are available in their usual role, replacing regular symbols when they show up in the right spot, and allowing for new combinations to form as a result.
As for the bonus symbols, these can land multiple times per reel, but only the middle three columns get them. At least 5 need to show up, and as many as 12 can be in view at the same time. They then deliver 7 to 20 free spins.
During free spins, should the 1st reel get covered by a single animal symbol, a re-spin feature will trigger. The animals of that type and any wilds are locked in their positions, while other symbols re-spin.
A Re-spin feature is also available in both modes, whenever you get 4+ bonus symbols. It’s a second chance for the free spins to trigger, or for more triggering symbols to accumulate, which then results in more rounds than you would’ve gotten initially. The bonus symbols are locked for the re-spin, in the hope that you will get more of them.
Epic Xtra Stax is a random feature, which boosts the odds of winning combinations forming that round.
Theme & Design
The North American prairie, and its many wild creatures, have inspired westerns, books and now slot machines as well. We find the forests of the region as a setting, while as symbols we discover the usual eagles, grizzly bears, bison, mustang and cougars, along with the lower value Royals. For the feature icons, there is the US flag for the wild, along with a scatter.
Great American Wilds is a decent game for someone that likes to try their luck at a progressive jackpot, but at the same time it has somewhat low top payouts for a slot which has medium-high volatility.
