Wild Turkey is brought to you by Net Entertainment and is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot which is set on a remote mountain range – it’s based on a tribe of indigenous turkeys who worship wild symbols! Playable from 20p to £100 a spin, it has an Aztec-type feel to it which will remind you a little of NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest.
You will see these wild turkeys which each possess weapons with spears, head dresses and mohicans on show. The Red Turkey is the most lucrative though with 200 times your bet available if you get 5 on an active payline. The Orange Turkey comes close with 100 times your bet on offer.
Look out for the Wild symbol (an Aztec styled wild emblem) as 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels will activate the Free Spins feature. 3 will give you 15 free spins, 4 will grant you 30 free spins and 5 will reward you with a whopping 60 free spins.
Now, the big wins will come with Stacked Wild symbols which only appear in the Free Spins feature. They can also contribute to extra free spins as a Stacked Wild symbol taking over a whole reel will give you a further 2 free spins every time it happens.
Wild Turkey is an odd concept but it’s a nicely balanced medium to high variance slot with a massive 4,000 times your bet available to win on each spin or free spin. This can be won more easily in the free spins feature due to the Stacked Wilds. The frequency of wins is lower in the feature though so hopefully these crazy turkeys will bring you luck.
Wild Turkey was released quite a few years ago but has since been revamped to use HTML5 technology – it’s also now available to play on mobile and tablet devices. Wild Turkey has definitely retained its charm and is a game often overlooked in my opinion. It has big win potential with the Stacked Wilds which I like. If you appreciate high variance video slots, Dead or Alive II (by NetEnt) is the one to play.
