Dance the night away as our Wild Reels slot review takes you into a disco-themed game. A pumping soundtrack and lots of flashing lights help to immerse you into this five-reel, ten-payline game.
The Wild Reels slot machine is one of the first launches from Spearhead Studios, a new studio based in Malta.
Cherries, golden bells, and playing card symbols give the Wild Reels online slot a colorful style. Gold records and a glitter ball help you to collect wins as this medium-volatility game plays out. As the name suggests, you will see entire reels filled with wild symbols. There are also extra wilds added to the mix in a free games feature.
Stacked wilds and free spins are popular features, but hardly new...
Let’s head off to this upmarket nightclub to find out.
Enjoy a wild night out...
A retro theme takes you back to the heydays of disco in the 1970s. Our review experts like games with soundtracks that enhance the theme, and the Wild Reels slots game features a pleasing disco-inspired tune.
The graphics and animations…
...are more up to date, but perhaps not the most sophisticated that we’ve encountered. A blue backdrop with a big glitter ball above the reels is about all the decorations that you will see.
Spearhead Studios is an established owner and operator of several online and mobile casinos. Over 650 people work for the company, so you can be sure that they know a thing or two about the business, including what players want from slot games. The Wild Reels online slot has been designed from the start to appeal to a wide audience.
Taken as a long-term average, players win back 97% of all wagers. This is above the industry average, and with medium volatility, the Wild Reels online slot pays out frequent prizes. Our reviewers found that the Wild Reels slot looked great on desktop computers, Windows, and Android devices, iPhones and iPads.
If you are a high roller, then the Wild Reels slot machine might not be for you. The minimum stake is set at 0.20, and the most that you can wager is just 10.00 per spin. But there are potential prizes of up to 50x your stake, or 500.00 at the maximum bet, to be won.
The Wild Reels slots game is easy to set up. Simple control buttons are used to change the stakes, and you can quickly adjust wagers up and down as you play.
Autoplay is another option. It’s a good choice if you want to simply relax and watch the reels spin without any input needed.
The card symbols, J, K, Q, and A look like strips of neon light, which helps them to fit in with the disco theme. In the course of our Wild Reels slot review, we found that these will often be stacked on reels. It helps you to complete combinations as three or more matching symbols land across paylines from the left side.
Other symbols found in the Wild Reels slot machine, such as cherries, bell, Bar, and 77, won’t be stacked, but pay out higher prizes when they fall into place.
In order to fully appreciate the magic of Wild Reels – it’s important to first understand what makes Wild symbols so magical.
Wild symbols are symbols that can substitute for any other symbol on the reels, except for scatter symbols. Even further to this, the Wild symbol tends to be the highest paying symbol according to the paytable. This really helps the player in landing more winning combinations on the reels.
More importantly, it helps in landing wins in general.
In order to trigger the Free Spins, you just need to land three or more scatter symbols on the reels. The scatter symbols can be recognized easily, because they’re represented by a massive ‘Free Spins’ written across the symbols.
Guaranteed Wilds feature is at the core of the game and it’ll jumpstart your wins right off the bat.
At the start of each spin…
...one of the 5 reels will consist entirely of Wild symbols! But when you trigger a win the reels won’t re-spin as the bonus reel won’t stick for long.
Each Wild (Gold Disc) is also valued at 40-500 coins for 3-5 of a kind, respectively. Together with the Star symbol, the two are the highest-paying icons. Others include BAR, 77, Bells, and Cherry. Then there are four royals (Jack, Queen, King and Ace) that have an advantage over the high-paying symbols because they can also appear stacked!
If you think one wild reel is all you get, then here’s more good news.
Like all classic video slots, this machine also has a Free Spins bonus.
As soon as you land 3 or more Bonus symbols (Disco Balls) anywhere in view, you’ll win 8-15 free spins with at least twice as many Wild Reels as the base game.
Each free spin starts with a minimum of x2 Wild Reels, and occasionally also a third!
The feature is triggered frequently and bonus wins average to about 30x the total bet. The Disco Ball/Scatter symbol itself has no coin value.
Wild Reels, in a nutshell, is an ideal slot for anyone who’s looking for frequent wins and low risk. So, we would definitely recommend it to beginners (unless they tweak the settings before the full launch).
The quality of the game is unquestionably good and is on par with some of the top developers out there. Given the basic theme though, it doesn’t really show the producer’s true potential. But time will tell...
