Easter Island is known for its big statues and wildlife, and the Wild Rapa Nui slot pulls all of that together into one game in a way that everything fits together really well. The graphics on the reels are gorgeous, and the scenery in the background of the island and the ocean is beautiful as well. It's a particularly well-developed game that centers around its visual appeal, and that's balanced out by some decent gameplay.
Game Layout and Format
Your initial look at this game will show five reels and three rows of symbols like most video slots out there today. However, down the right-hand and left-hand sides of the reels, you'll see options for 10, 20 or 30 paylines per spin. These are your options for the number of paylines you'll be betting with each turn, and they give you a way to customize your play. There is no RTP disadvantage to any of the three, so you're free to adjust this control however you like. You can also use the lines button in the bottom-left corner to control this as well.
Betting is set up so that you can wager $0.01 to $2 per line. The minimum bet size with 10 paylines is $0.10 per spin, and the maximum with 30 paylines is $60 per spin. This shows how wide of a range of different bet sizes you have, but it also shows how picking from the three overall formats will vary your available betting range. It's up to you which you pick with no considerable advantage or disadvantage whatsoever.
The big head statue is the wild symbol. Based on a wager of $1 per line, no matter how many paylines you play with, you'll be able to win 2,500x for five of a kind of this symbol. You can also score 750x for four of a kind, and a three-of-a-kind combination gets you 100x. These scatters give you a lot of value on the reels since they can show up anywhere, but they become even more valuable during the free spins mode, which you'll see below. They've tied the wild and the free spins mode together in a very important way.
Scatter Symbols and Free Spins
There's another symbol with the statues on it, but this one has three with a sunset scene in the background. If you pick up at least three of this symbol on the reels, no matter where they are positioned, then you'll be rewarded with a set of free spins. You can earn 10 free spins for three of the scatter, 15 free spins for four or a total of 25 free spins with five of the scatters. Note that these do not have to fall on a payline to win, but you do not get cash prizes with these scatter symbols.
During your free spins mode, you'll have a special wild feature that gives you an overwhelming amount of value. This comes in the form of having two reels randomly chosen to be completely wild during every single free turn. That means you'll only have to line up three symbols to get the big, five-of-a-kind wins that give you the best payouts in the game.
Other Symbols and Payouts
Five of a kind of the penguin or turtle symbol will earn a win worth 750x. You can also pick up five of the hummingbird symbol for a 400x win. The prizes for five of the egg or the feather symbols are both 200x. For the card rank symbols, it comes down to 150x for five of the red A or the yellow K, and you can make it 100x for five of the yellow Q or green J. We really wish they would have used something different than the card rank symbols because they stand out as being the only low-quality part of the visuals for this game.
The balance from the pay table is pretty strong, and it helps to give the game a medium overall volatility. You may want to use smaller bet sizes than you normally would to smooth out some of the swings.
The Wild Rapa Nui slot by Gamomat focuses on a theme that we don't see much in the online slots world, and when it's done with such solid graphics, it definitely stands out. The gameplay is also decent with a medium volatility, a reasonable hit-rate and a bonus feature that gives a lot of value with the random wild reels. It's not the most action-packed title out there, and it doesn't have some big brand behind it, but it definitely can handle its own when put side-by-side with much of the competition. If you like beautiful landscapes and large statues, this is a game you should check out to see how you like it.
