The Wild Life is a five-reel video slot from IGT with just 10 paylines but an impressive non-progressive jackpot of up to 250 times your stake. In this African safari adventure, players are invited to look for rhino, giraffe and zebra on the savannah. But with expanding wilds lurking behind every tree and bush, this could turn out to be a wild ride. Read our full review below.
Patience Is the Name of the GameJust like on a real safari, players will need nerves of steel and bags of patience if they’re going to land a prize. Due to its impressive jackpot, IGT's The Wild Life is a relatively high variance game. This means there are few of the trickle-down small wins on offer, as most of the prize money is being shored up to reward the jackpot winners. However, there are still plenty of prizes up for grabs. The Wild Life features both playing card and animal icons, and by using a wild, there are good chances to make combinations. The wild symbol in this game is the lion. It only lands on reels 2, 3 and 4 but has the ability to expand. As usual, the wild completes a winning combination when it replaces a missing combination piece. This is much more likely to happen and increases your chances of a high-value combination when it expands to cover the entire reel. Wild reels are definitely something you want to look out for, and should a wild land on reels 2, 3 and 4 together, then all three reels will go wild, guaranteeing players a big win.
Get Something for NothingIn The Wild Life, the free spins feature is opened when three or more African icon scatters symbols show up anywhere on the reels. Three scatters anywhere on the reels give you 10 free spins at your current stake value, four scatters award 15 free spins and five scatter symbols lead to 20 free spins.
What’s Hot? What’s Not?The Wild Life is a very slick and well-produced title, as you’d expect from this studio. There’s nothing amateurish about these graphics or the interface. Everything is just where it should be, and everything does what it’s supposed to do. However, there’s not a lot of storyline or backstory, but then some serious high-rollers aren’t in the game to be entertained. And there’s no denying it: this game is designed for high-rollers who are used to sitting back and biding their time. Some players might find it takes a good long while to get into a free spins round, but once you’re in it does pay off. The expanding wilds definitely make up for the waiting time and will help boost your credits if you’re running low.
A Nice Trip to the SavannahThis free slots game is ideal for players who like a reliable and not too flashy game and a mellow soundtrack. Serious players will appreciate the time and dedication to detail in the game, and new players will find the simplicity easy to follow.
