Amazon Wild Slots
Amazon Wild is a slot with a focus on three different sections of the Amazon rainforest. Firstly, there are the animals, featuring a panther, a monkey, a chameleon and a particularly eye catching red colored frog. Next up are the birds, including a toucan and a parrot, these bringing much color to the reels, which is only added to by the flowers category.
All in all, the slot gives you a great insight into the amazing wildlife that can be found in the Amazon. The slot is certainly an interesting one due to the expanded reels and the huge number of pay lines (100), while a map based bonus round can certainly give your bankroll a boost.
How to Win on Amazon Wild
The panther is the highest paying symbol of all in the game, worth an impressive 1,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. The friendly looking monkey is next on the pay table, worth 500 coins, before the toucan and the red wild flower come next at 300 and 250 coins respectively. It’s nice to come across a slot where all of the symbols are relevant to the theme, as opposed to the reels being filled by a number of playing card style filler symbols.
A golden Inca style pendant is the wild symbol and will substitute for any other on the reels apart from the scatter. Should the wild appear twice on one reel, this will become an expanding wild, therefore covering the entire reel. With each reel being four symbols high, this can lead to a large number of additional wins.
Amazon Wild Map Bonus Game
The final symbol is the scatter, which shows an old, slightly faded map of the Amazon. If you can land this 3 or more times across any of the reels you’ll find yourself heading into the ‘map bonus game’. The map will now appear and you’ll have the job of selecting ruins, with each and every pick guaranteeing you a prize. You’ll have 3, 4 or 5 picks, depending on whether you activated the feature with 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols. You’ll also gain an immediate scatter prize when activating the feature too.
Design and Setup
The game is set against the backdrop of an Amazon jungle scene, with animals, birds and flowers all represented nicely. In the background of the scene you’ll see ancient Mayan temples, which give the game a historical feel, taking you back a few hundred years to a time when the Mayans ruled the continent. This scene is framed by an ornate golden pattern, featuring totem pole style carvings of a variety of jungle creatures. This all creates a very nice mix visually, despite the graphics not being quite up to the standard of some of today’s slots. The accompanying sound really gives the slot a lift, as you’ll find a jungle style drumbeat playing throughout, this joined by the sound of the animals and birds when their symbols animate and come to life.
This slot, like the majority of the game found online, has five reels, however each of the reels is four high, which is certainly not standard. Due to the oversize reels, you’ll find an amazing 100 pay lines on this slot, which will appeal to many players, although with all 100 lines being compulsory, some players might miss the opportunity to play fewer.
The minimum stake for each of these lines is just 1c, making for a minimum stake of $1, while you can play each of the lines for up to a dollar, making for a maximum spin cost of $100. To vary the cost, you have simple ‘stake up’ and ‘stake down’ buttons. As well as the ‘play’ button which will spin the reels just once, the auto play button allows you to set the slot in motion for 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 spins without interruption.
This Amaya designed slot isn’t the most complicated game you’ll find online and it isn’t the best graphically either, but there are a number of reasons why you should give it a spin. The expanding wild in the base game can make for some very big wins, the fact that there are 100 pay lines will appeal to a great number of users and the bonus game can give your bankroll a nice boost too.
