Weird Wicked and Wild Slot from Aristocrat
Weird, Wicked and Wild is a live casino slot with a horror theme. In many similar themed slots you might encounter the usual characters such as Count Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster or a Halloween pumpkin.
This slot has a slightly less obvious, perhaps eerier approach, as you’ll find a pair of evil staring eyes, a red-eyed vampire bat and the face of a wolf staring out from the reels. This live slot features a free spins round where you’ll choose exactly how you play it as the highlight, while you could find a progressive Jackpot heading your way too.
Landing Wins on Weird, Wicked and Wild
Perhaps surprisingly, the two highest paying symbols aren’t horror themed at all. A sparkling multi-colored diamond is worth 100 coins for the maximum 5 in a row, while a half blue and half red heart is next at 40 coins. The horror symbols come next, with the wolf, the evil eyes and the bat paying 30, 24 and 22 coins respectively for ta full house of five. The standard symbols are completed by the familiar Aristocrat playing cards. At first glance these prizes seem on the small side. What you will find is that wilds, money bags and multipliers more than make up for this.
A multi-colored star is the wild symbol and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the bonus one.
A money bag symbol, complete with the dollar sign on the front is stacked on all 5 reels and landing these offers the chance of some very big wins. If they fill the first 3 reels you’ll win 500 coins, fill the next reel too and 1,000 coins are yours, while filling all of the reels sees 2,000 coins heading your way. However, each of these wins has an extra random payout too, the maximum five reels giving you between 444 and 6237 extra coins! When these reels are filling up, you can look up to the extra screen above the reels to see your progress.
Pick from Weird, Wicked or Wild Bonuses
The final symbol on this Aristocrat designed game is a ‘W’, which makes sense when you take a look at the title. This is a scatter symbol and if you can land three or more of these across any of the reels you’ll earn both a scatter win and entry into the free spins feature. You’ll now choose one of the three following bonus features:
Weird Bonus – You’ll have 13, 20 or 26 spins based on landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters. A table of multipliers appears above the reels and every losing spin sees you move one multiplier to the right, these multipliers offering 1x, 2x, 3x and 10x wins. A winning spin will see you return to the start of the multiplier table.
Wicked Bonus – You’ll have 15, 18 or 25 spins based on landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters. In this feature the stacks of symbols can grow 5 high, the first stack increase happening at the start, while further stack increase happen when you have 1, 3, 5 or 7 free games remaining.
Wild Bonus – You’ll have 10, 15 or 21 spins based on landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters. In this feature, stacks of the highest paying symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 will change into wilds, making for some hugely profitable spins.
After any winning or losing spin you could also find yourself with the progressive Jackpot win heading your way, this randomly allocated so you’ll never know when it could come your way. At time of writing this offered a four figure payout which would certainly give your bankroll a boost.
Eye-Catching Design and Standard Setup
When it comes to live casino slots, this might not be the most expansive looking game in comparison to some other film or TV based games, but with the two impressive screens, it will certainly catch your eye. The not so obvious horror theme is added to by the sound effects which feature the occasional howl of a wolf and other slightly sinister sound effects, which really help bring the game to life.
This five reel slot has a total of 40 win lines and can be played for as little as 1c per line.
Overall Experience – A Wild Ride
Weird, Wicked and Wild is an entertaining and feature filled slot. During the base game, the money bag feature is a real bonus, as you’re always just one spin away from a potentially big win, with a nice random added bonus which will get those coins flowing that little bit more. The chance of a progressive jackpot win is always a nice extra too. However, the free spins bonus round is the best feature of all, where you can choose to play it your way – plenty of free spins to be won too.
