Join the big beasts of the jungle in Totally Wild, a safari-themed video slot from Novomatic. Played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine, it comes with a potentially exciting Free Games feature that awards up to 25 free spins with 4 wild symbols. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 40p and £100 per spin.
Like many Novomatic video slots, there’s nothing too flashy about the design of Totally Wild. With dense jungle foliage in the background, you’ll see lower value royal values and 4 better paying wild animals. In order of value are the frog and toucan which pay 1.25, 5 or 25 times your bet if you find 3, 4 or 5 on 1 of the game’s 20 paylines. More rewarding is the monkey which pays 2.5, 10 or 37.5 times your bet. The best of the quartet is the leopard. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination and you can look forward to an award of 3.75, 12.5 or 50 times your bet.
The base game doesn’t feature a wild. There is a scatter though. Land 3, 4 or 5 of this jungle scene and you’ll receive a payout of 5, 20 or 100 times your bet. You’ll also trigger the Free Games feature and with it, 10, 15 or 25 free spins. It’s here that things have the potential to get far more interesting.
During the free spins, all of the frog, toucan, monkey and leopard symbols are wild which greatly boosts your opportunities of bagging something big.
Novomatic’s usual formula combines simple design with basic but volatile gameplay. That’s certainly the case with Totally Wild. The sound and visuals are pretty ordinary. You’ll hear the occasional blast of rhythmical drumming when you hit a winner.
All the best action in this medium to high variance game comes via the Free Games feature. Land a good haul of free spins and let the wild animals work their wild magic and Totally Wild can certainly live up to its name. If you like highly volatile games with animals, Playtech’s Jungle Giants is 1 to play.
