There’ never been any shortage of slots that take you into the Canadian wilderness. For some reason that part of the world, with its sparse, dramatic landscapes and Native American culture seems to capture players’ imaginations like no other.
When another game in this genre is launched it therefore needs to be exceptionally good, and thankfully Playtech’s Roaring Wilds is just that.
This exceptionally rugged, nature-themed 40-liner comes with stacked symbols and a bonus feature that awards 15 free spins, and stakes range from between 40p to £2,000 per spin so it’s a game for serious players, set in a serious part of the world.
On the reels you’ll meet fish, big cats, golden eagles and the like, who all look perfectly at home in the impressive mountain environment that serves as this game’s backdrop. The most valuable symbol is the roaring wild bear which will net you 200, 500 or 1,000 times your line bet for a 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols.
Land 3 or more of the paw print scatter symbol anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger the classic 15 free spin reward, and free spins can be re-triggered during any of those 15 games with no upper limit.
Variance-wise this is – as you’d expect – a game that pays out large amounts infrequently; if you want instant gratification then game themed around gemstones or kittens may be more up your street, but players who are attracted to slots like Roaring Wilds tend to be seasoned gamers who aren’t fishing for minnows.
All good Playtech casinos are now offering this game, and with four rows rather than the usual three plus some superb sound effects it’ll quickly become a regular haunt for you if you enjoy a decent, rewarding challenge.
