Wild Gambler Slot Review & Game Bonus

Ever felt like the odds were stacked against you while playing online video slots? Well, give Playtech’s Wild Gambler slot a spin and you’ll be able to take back control thanks to innovate locking wilds.

A five-reel, 20-payline title, Wild Gambler features an African bush theme, with a background of rolling plains scorching in the midday sun. Across this savannah landscape, players will find a number of animals such as flamingos, rhinos, cheetahs and wild lions on the reels, with even the conventional ace-through-ten playing card values benefitting from colourful tribal decoration to uphold the theme.

Playable from as little as £0.20 per spin across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices, the Wild Gambler slot machine features a top base game jackpot of 1,000x players’ bet per line. On top of that, there’s also a free spins bonus, but the star attraction is the locking wilds feature which we’ll take a further look at below.

Wild, Locked And Loaded

Indeed, somewhat unusually for a video slot, Wild Gambler actually encourages players to improve their chances of winning by adding locked wild symbols to the gameboard. By clicking any of the 15 reel spaces, players can elect to place a lion wild icon that will remain locked in place during their next spin. Naturally this helps them secure winning combos, but each wild they add will increase the cost.

With this in mind, it is down to players to select the configuration of wilds that they think will offer the best risk-reward balance as they play, as simply hammering down wilds so that 90% of the gameboard is covered is certain to burn through your bankroll without yielding any significant returns.

Regardless of how many wilds they elect to spin with, players can still gain access to a free spins feature whenever five meerkat symbols appear. Should this happen, they’ll receive eight bonus games with any wilds that appear locking in place for the duration of the feature, albeit at no additional cost.

Gambler’s Fallacy?

Although the locked wild system in the Wild Gambler slot is an interesting concept to get to grips with, in practice it has little bearing on the gameplay as the cost per spin is balanced in such a way that it negates any advantage.
