Wild Bazaar Slot Machine
Wild Bazaar is a game that’s getting us to Morocco, a destination that’s not very common for slot machines. Given the developer that’s behind it, NetEnt, expect for some very special graphics as well as unique features to be part of it.
26 active lines and 5 reels, that’s the offer that NetEnt makes with this game. It’s going to pay well if you take into account the maximum potential that it has, of up to 390x the stake ($156,000), but individual wins are much lower. You can get about four different types of wilds here, including stacked, colossal, linked and multiplier variants.
Betting and Prizes
It’s on the high side betting wise, with a maximum value of $400 selected by the player for each round. The starting point is at a much lower value, of just $0.20, so you can get away with as little as $0.01 per line. The highest line bet can be set to $20, using 10 coins of $2.
A regular winning combination will pay at most $3,000 (150x) on its own, or up to $6,000 with the wild’s multiplier assisting. For 26 lines, the total potential for a single round reaches 390x the wager, or up to $156,000.
The RTP is another figure that is pretty much working as expected, being set at 96.15% by the developer, a respectable figure.
Wild Bazaar Slot Features
The features don’t come quite in the way you’d expect. You use the four high-paying symbols, each one with a treasure chest of a different color, to activate a wild feature. You do this with combinations of 3+ Treasure Chests formed on active lines.
A combo of 3+ Red Chests will give you stacked wild symbols which cover full reels. The Green Chests add 2x2 Colossal Wilds to the reels. The Pink Chests give you the Linked Wilds, which transform entire rows of symbols into wilds, if there are two such symbols at the extremes. Finally, the Blue Chests will deliver wilds with 2x multipliers, so those will double wins. It’s entirely possible to have all four types of wild spins triggered at the same time, and the odds of having a screen filled with wilds would be quite high at that point.
That’s pretty much it for the major features that Wild Bazaar offers. Every high paying combo will trigger a feature for you, so on the feature front the game is offering more than enough. It’s a low volatility game by the looks of it.
Theme & Design
The Arabic style theme is going to take you to a bazaar in Morocco, rather than in a Middle Eastern location. You have all sorts of objects in the vicinity of the reels, from fans to radios or books, just the sort of things you’d expect to find for sale in such a place. The game has awesome graphics, NetEnt games always do, and they involve symbols ranging from Wild logos, to four types of treasure chests and just as many jewelry pieces coming in the same four colors. I have nothing to complain about graphics wise, NetEnt have outdone themselves once again.
You can expect for Wild Bazaar to be an impressive slot machine, visually as well as feature wise, especially if you enjoy wild features which trigger fairly often. I think it’s going to be a hit for NetEnt.
