Game of the Week – Wild Wizards
Wild Wizards is one of the latest video slot games from Real Time Gaming. It features a fun theme of wizards and magic and feels like something you might have seen on Saturday morning cartoons as a kid.
This game has multiple bonus games and two progressive jackpots that can be triggered at random. Learn more about the game and the features it offers.
Fairly Basic Magic-Themed Slot Game
When first viewing this game, I was reminded of Saturday morning cartoons. The graphics for this game are decent and more indicative of something you’d see from the 1980s or 1990s cartoons. You can say the same for the background music which is appropriate but also more appropriate for a cartoon.
The animation is very basic, except for the Wizard which is probably the most impressive part of the game. He materializes and then does a mighty hit of his staff to produce the winning spell.
Suitable for All Bankrolls
Wild Wizards is a 25-payline game with bets ranging from .25 per spin to $6.25 per spin. Like most RTG slot games, this game uses a credit system. This means that many of the pay symbols are going to generate smaller payouts individually.
This game has a variety of paying symbols. The Royals pay when three or more hits. Higher paying symbols like potions, wizard’s hat, wizard’s house, and owl pay for two of a kind or greater.
The Book of Spell is the scatter for this game and is a paying symbol. Finally, the Wizard serves as the wild and substitutes for all symbols, including the scatter. However, he can only count once for a scatter.
Wild Wizard Feature
When the Book of Spells appears on Reel 1 and a Wizard on Reel 5, you will trigger the Wild Wizard Feature. The bonus game is selected at random and will be one of the following:
- Mad Magic – Five free spins where wins will pay 5x for 2 of a kind, 50x for three of a kind, or 500x for four of a kind.
- Wizard’s Tower – 8 frees spins where the Wizard is held on the middle reel.
- Fireball – Six free games where the Wizards is held on Reels 2 and 4.
- Polymorph – The Wizards casts a spell to reveal either 1, 2, or 3 Bonus Symbols. You’ll then get 7 free spins and the Bonus Symbols will be replaced with Wizard wilds.
- Sorcery – 10 free spins where an extra Wizard is added to a reel before each spin.
All features except the Mad Magic feature can be retriggered.
It took a while but we did finally hit this feature. We triggered the Sorcery feature and while fun, it didn’t generate but about a 9x win.
Three Random Progressive Jackpot Available
This game features two progressive jackpots that can trigger randomly after any spin at all stakes. The Minor jackpot was around $1,500 when we tested the game and the Major jackpot around $13,680.
There are no special qualifications or bonus games to play to determine the jackpot. It is truly random. Regardless of which jackpot you hit, this is still a nice win, especially if you’re playing lower stakes.
Medium to High Variance Jackpot Pokie
While Real Time Gaming doesn’t publish the RTP of their games, it is clear that this game is a medium to high variance online slot game. In our testing, most of our smaller wins did not turn a profit and we received the one medium-sized win from the bonus feature.
If you’re someone that loves jackpot slots, then this game may be worth checking out. However, for those that are looking for games to have fun with or generate consistent wins, this may not be the best online slot game for you.
