Heavy snowfall and seven exciting bonus features await in this beautiful slot. Play’n Go has steadily upped their slot game throughout the years, and they are certainly one of the top cats in the field right now. Wild North takes a little-used theme and makes the best of it. Of course, it’s not only the eye candy that matters but line wins and big pots. Are they to be found in the desolate wastes of the North?
The inspiration for this slot stems from the Northern hemisphere, and especially the lush winter forests with the fauna and flora serving as symbols and as the backdrop. The background slowly accumulates snow, and although the animations are not complicated they are beautiful. Different bonus features tie into the theme as well, and even the playing card ranks are something to behold. The music and sound effects are not all that spectacular, but they do play their part.
Betting Options and Functions
All wins are calculated from left to right, with three to five symbols needed for a win. The playing arena is the almost normal five reels in four rows. Forty fixed paylines stretch across the screen. Betting is controlled with a simple total bet selector, which runs from 0.20 to 50 coins per spin.
The playing card form the backbone of paying symbols, with payouts ranging from four to 90 times your line bet.The owl, wolf, bear, and reindeer are the top symbols and they pay between 12 and 250 times the bet. Five symbol combos are what you want on the reels on top of the bonus features to score big wins. The wild, which is the bobcat, pays out 500 times your line bet when five connect in a payline.
Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, symbols will trigger the bonus games. Three scatters are needed anywhere on the reels. There are several different bonus features that can trigger via the bonus wheel. As usual, you cannot influence where the wheel stops, only hope for the best.
Mainly what you have on offers are free spins, in differing amounts and with different features. The Lynx will give you three spins with one or two reels full of wilds, the Great Wilderness presents three spins with mega symbols, reindeer offers a spin with stacked symbols and a chance to score re-spins, and the bear offers a spin with a multiplier of up to 30. The Wolfpack, in turn, add extra wilds, and awards extra spins whenever another wolf appears, whereas the Owl bonus game awards spins until you win with extra large owl symbols to make it easier.
You can also land the Wild North Explorer, which lets you pick tiles revealing instant wins or the chance to trigger some of the bonus features. With some luck, you can trigger almost all of them in one go!
Wild North is a beautiful slot with excellent gameplay. The bonus features leave you a bit wanting, as do the overall wins, though both trigger quite often to balance this out. Even if the theme is not close your heart you should try the game for a few spins. Works excellent on mobile devices.
