Game of the Week – Spring Wilds
Easter is right around the corner, so Real Time Gaming is celebrating the holiday with its newest online slot game. Spring Wilds is an adorable 5-Reel, 25 payline slot game featuring cute baby animals and an awesome Spring Wilds re-spin feature. Let’s learn more about this game and the prizes you can win.
Spring Wilds Brings the Cute and the Fuzzy
Spring Wilds is the latest 5-Reel slot game from Real Time Gaming. If you love cute little animals, you’ll love this one. This looks like Candy Crush meets Easter with a design that makes you want to snatch up the animals and hug them to pieces. The game is not just cute, but it also has some huge prizes as well.
The paytable for this game is pretty simple. You have Royals, baby chicks, baby sheep, baby pigs, and baby bunnies. All are cute and adorable. However, like most RTG games, you have to make multi-line wins to turn a profit most of the time. However, there are a few features that can help you score some killer wins.
Lucky Streak Re-Spins
The Spring Wilds symbol is the bonus game scatter for this game. Land six or more on the reels and you will trigger the Lucky Streak respin feature. During the respin, the Spring Wilds symbols will lock into place, and the rest of the blocks spin. If you land a Spring Wilds symbol in a spot, the respin continues.
The respin feature continues until you fail to catch a new symbol or all blocks are filled. The least you can win is 6x your initial bet. If you fill all blocks, you will get 400x your bet.
This is easily my favorite feature of the game as I was able to trigger this feature many times. My best round landed me 12 symbols overall, giving me a win of 80x. In all honesty, this feature turned what should have been a big losing session into a nice winning session.
Free Spins Game
The easter basket with golden eggs is the scatter for this game. Land three on the board to unlock the free spins feature. You will get 10, 15, or 20 free spins depending on whether you land 3, 4, or 5 scatters. The scatters also pay 1x, 10x, or 25x your bet in addition to any free spin earnings won.
During the free spins game, the Lucky Streak Re-spin feature triggers more frequently. Free spins are also re-triggerable. It took a while to trigger this but I was able to get this feature to trigger twice. Both produced “ok” wins, but I won much more on the Lucky Streak Re-spins during the base game.
Spring Wilds is Very Swingy But Has Massive Win Potential
Spring Wilds is a perfect example of a high volatility slot game. At one point during my play, I was down 100 bets. However, I was able to recover completely thanks to some nice hits on the Lucky Streak Re-spin feature. If you don’t have the patience or the ability to ride out variance, this game is not going to be for you.
You can always control the variance a bit by betting lower limits. Bets range from .25 to $6.25 per spin. I tested at $1 per spin. Overall, this game is remarkably adorable and the bonus features give you a great opportunity to score some big wins. In the end, I was able to turn a 100 bet loss into a 65 bet win.
