Novomatic has taken the classic fruit machine and given it a gritty, urban makeover to create Really Wild. Played using a 4 reel, 7 payline game engine it comes with graffiti-style design plus a bonus round that awards up to 40 free spins with stacked wild extras. Play this medium variance game on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 10p and £100 per spin.
Set against the high-rise towers of a big city and walls strewn with tags, there’s an inner city feel to the design here. The symbols on the reels are pure fruit machine though. In order of value are cherries and lemons which pay 0.5 or 2 times your bet if you land 3 or 4 in combination. The plums and oranges follow, paying 1 or 4 times your bet with the melon awarding 2 or 10 times your bet.
Better still is the lucky 7 which will get you 10 or 40 times your bet. Top of the payers though is the star. Land 3 or 4 of these and you can look forward to an award of 20 or 100 times your total bet. Helping your winning chances is the wild. This spins in stacked formation and can land on all 4 reels.
Really Wild comes with a Free Games feature. It’s triggered by landing 3 or 4 of the graffiti artist scatter on the same spin. Your reward is 10 or 20 free spins. Before the round starts, 1 reel is picked at random. A stacked wild will drop into this reel and them remain locked in position for the whole of the round. You can add more free spins to your total here too if the scatters fall nicely.
This is quite an unusual theme for a Novomatic video slot. The design is decent enough, backed by bangs and bleeps rather than something a bit more hip hop which you might have expected. The gameplay is simple but can deliver some decent action thanks largely to the stacked wilds – you can win 700 times your bet per spin if your luck is in.
It’s not a game we’ll be rushing back to again and again but if you fancy taking a walk on the urban wild side the Really Wild video slot is a game to consider. If you want bigger potential wins, Eye of the Dragon or Kingdom of Legend (both by Novomatic) are much more appealing.
