Playtech has just released a new jungle-themed slot machine, not their first and probably not their last. Its name is Anaconda Wild, and it’s the type of game that will show off the dangers of the Amazon jungle, while at the same time it will praise the treasures which are hidden there, left behind by a Mayan civilization which isn’t around these days.
For Anaconda Wild, you have 6x4 reels in play, with a total of 50 active lines that you can use. The game has good potential, offering even up to 2,000x the stake of that round back to you as a prize. It’s not getting a big RTP, but on the feature side it can deliver re-spins, wilds or the Stone Serpent bonus.
Betting and Prizes
Anaconda Wild doesn’t have to cost you a fortune to play, though you certainly have that option if you can afford it. While the maximum bet accepts bets of up to $500, the minimum one starts from just $0.25.
Prizes are quite impressive, if the right things happen, and you find yourself with a screen filled with wild symbols. A payout of 2,000x the stake could be yours, so the more you wager, the bigger the potential reward.
The one thing that I didn’t like was the Return to Player, which has been calculated at 94.39%. It’s below average for a modern game, and I’d consider it great only if you compared it with what you get from a land-based slot.
Anaconda Wild Slot Features
Among the few features which are available inside, the Wild symbol is going to be fairly important, particularly since it pays the highest amount, of up to 40x the stake. A screen filled with wilds delivers the largest payout of the slot, of up to 2,000x the stake. Naturally, it can be a substitute for another symbol, though I wouldn’t expect it to behave as a scatter. I was slightly disappointed that this symbol got a simple Wild logo as its image, since the game’s title suggests an Anaconda Wild.
Get a Wild symbol to appear, and there will be Anaconda Wild Respins triggered as well. A snake will start moving, and it will leave wild symbols behind it. Once the snake gets to the initial cell, the respins end. This is the point where you’re hoping that you will get as many wilds on the reels as possible, even a full screen filled with them if possible.
The list of features is obviously quite short, but the role of the wild symbol is a big one. Even a single wild in place on the reels gets you the feature, making it a fairly rare occurrence and one with big potential.
Theme & Design
It’s not an unusual theme, on the contrary, as we’ve seen the Mayan treasures in plenty of other slot machines, many of them using the jungle for the background as well. As for the symbols that have been selected in this case, there is a Wild Logo present, along with a Mayan princess, a chalice, a treasure chest, an idol representing the Sun, bracelets, plus the standard four card suits. It’s not going to be a great design, but it’s good enough to not be an issue if you like everything else about this slot.
Anaconda Wild will have a layout with 6 reels, which is already making it quite special. The 2,000x the stake maximum potential helps make it an attractive choice.
