As you travel through the wild side of North America, in a time long gone now, you get to win some serious prizes and you will also enjoy nature’s beauty in the process. It’s the proposition that Novomatic / Green Tube is making here, in Wild Country, one of their recent slots.
In the case of Wild Country, even though it’s a game with a quieter kind of theme, they chose to use a large setup with 5 by 4 reels and with 1024 ways to win reunited under the All Pays system. They made the game capable of paying even as much as $250,000 for a single spin, so it’s a fairly impressive slot, especially since it’s making use of free spins, scatters, 3x multipliers and wilds.
Betting and Prizes
For the bets of Wild Country, keep in mind that you get 1024 ways to win each round, so the 40 coins/lines which the game pretends to be using in actuality isn’t such a big deal. You decide the total amount wagered, and this automatically changes how much the line bet is set to. It can be a bet of $0.40 to $100, which means that you will be using up to $2.50 per line.
Moving on to the rewards, those are best when coming during the free spins, and with the wilds assisting, since multipliers of up to 3x get applied then. The biggest reward possible in the game is 2,500x the stake for a single round, so up to $250,000 cash. Considering that this is a slot with ways to win, that kind of reward is actually very good, definitely above average for such a game.
Wild Country Slot Features
The features tend to be on the simple side, and they’re used in a lot of other games in similar form, but they do get some serious help from the multipliers which become possible for the free spins.
First of all, you will get the Bear Print as the wild and on the middle three columns. When appearing there, it will only be used as a replacement for a missing regular symbol, but not for a scatter. You don’t get rewards directly from the wild.
The focus should be on the free spins in this case, as the symbols with the Mountain will act as scatters and will be used to trigger this feature. You win 2x to 10x the stake for starters, and then you get into a feature with 8, 15 or 20 games as well. The feature is retriggered if 2 to 5 additional scatters appear, which would get you 5 to 20 additional rounds. As many as 40 free spins can be obtained from the game.
The wild symbol is going to bring you bigger wins here, as it appears and contributes with a multiplier to combination. It could be a 2x or 3x multiplier, so at this point you’re looking at massive potential compared with the base game rounds.
Theme & Design
The nature aspect and the focus on creatures from North America is not unique, but the game has its charms. It’s offering us some of the usual playing card icons in lower positions, but once you switch to the high paying ones, you also get the grizzly bear, eagles, a moose, a puma or fish. It’s going to be a decent looking game, but not quite as modern as the better titles we see right now.
Wild Country is a Novomatic / Green Tube release which should be fun for many, thanks to its big potential and many ways to win.
