IGT Wishwood Slot Review and Free Play

Wishwood: Demo

Join a mischievous forest sprite called Poa in Wishwood, a feature heavy, 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from IGT. Those features include streak spins, multipliers of up to 10x and stacked wilds on multiple reels and 3 free spins rounds. Play this high variance game on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 20p and £400 per spin.

A magical forest is the setting for Wishwood. Your guide is the furry sprite Poa – this little creature can help you find plenty of goodies lurking in the undergrowth. They include:

Tangled Symbols feature – this can hit at random on any base game spin. Winning combinations are held and the other symbols spin again. These re-spins keep on coming as long as a new symbol joins the cluster.

Any winless spin in the base game could trigger the Mystery Picker and with it 1 of the following extras:

  • Wispy Wilds feature – look out for stacks of up to 4 extra wilds that can appear on each reel.
  • Magic Multipliers feature – you’ll be awarded 3 or 4 multipliers worth 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x. These multipliers are combined and applied to any line wins on that spin.
  • Bonus Climb – you can also trigger the Bonus Climb by landing 3 bonus symbols on the same spin. Land 2 and Poa can appear to boot the all-important third into place.

Spin a wheel to send Poa up a tree. The more branches Poa climbs, the bigger the potential payouts on offer. The goal is to reach a certain branch where you’ll activate 1 of the following 3 free spin features:

  • Amber Wilds Bonus feature – an initial haul of 7 free spins are on offer here. If you land a wild that doesn’t form part of a winner, it’s locked in place until it does become part of a successful combo.
  • Enchanted Wilds Bonus feature – you’ll start this round with 5 free spins. Look out for the wisps that fill circle meters and turn the 3 animal symbols wilds. 5 extra free spins are awarded with each transformation. You could end up with 25 free spins with added wilds here.
  • Top of the Tree Bonus feature – before starting your 8 free spins, select a symbol. This will become the special expander. This symbols fills the reel both vertically and horizontally whenever it lands during the round.

Some of IGT’s online video slots haven’t lived up to the visuals found in their brick and mortar casino offerings. Wishwood is one of their better-looking games though. The forest is nicely drawn and you’ll see squirrels, owls and butterflies hidden among the flora and fauna.

With all those cutesy woodland animals you could mistake this as a gentle game. Don’t as this is a highly volatile game that can serve up some potentially massive bankroll swings. If you can cope with the super high variance and enjoy the nature theme then a virtual walk in the Wishwood is well worth undertaking.
