Legacy of the Wild 2 Theme – knights, sorcerers + monsters

Legacy of the Wild 2 slot base game

The Legacy of the Wild 2 slot might sound like a trip to the great outdoors but it is in fact a mediaeval fantasy adventure. Expect knights, sorcerers and magic. The imagery is nicely done and has a comic book quality too. There’s a fantastical soundtrack playing in the background which ramps up the atmosphere. It’s just what we’ve come to expect from a Playtech slot.

Set within a green valley and overlooked by an imposing castle, the reels are made up of 5 lower value shield symbols and 5 more rewarding character symbols. The bearded sorcerer tops the bill as far as payouts go. Land 3, 4 or 5 of this Merlinesque character for an award of 20 x your bet if you land 5 on a payline.

The 5×6 reel grid is ideally suited to playing on a smartphone in portrait mode. The visuals are appealing, even on the smaller screen and the gameplay stacks up well. The Legacy of the Wild 2 mobile slot is a solid performer.

Legacy of the Wild 2 Slot RTP & Info

The game engine in the Legacy of the Wild 2 slot isn’t one that you commonly see. It’s a 5 reel, 6 row, 60 payline set up. Land 3 or more matching symbols or wilds on 1 of those paylines, starting from reel 1 to form a winning combination.

Bet levels here range from between 15p and £300 per spin. Use the + and – buttons next to the Total Bet button to adjust. Autoplay allows you to run between 5 and 100 autospins or leave then running indefinitely until you trigger the feature round. There’s are no loss stop limits available but you can play in turbo mode if you wish.

The Legacy of the Wild 2 RTP is an above average 96.36%. We found the volatility here to be high. You might not win all that regularly but you can win big when you do. The maximum win is 1,000 x your total bet.

Legacy of the Wild 2 Bonus features

There’s a decent amount of variety on offer in Legacy of the Wild 2, starting with the unusual game grid. Central to the action are the collapsing reels which follow every winning combination. Look out for wilds that remove low value symbols and of course the bonus round where you could land up to 50 free spins.

Collapsing Reels feature

Legacy of the Wild is played using collapsing reels. Land a winning combination and those successful symbols are blasted off the grid and new ones replace them. The cascades continue until no new winner is formed. Cascades also trigger free spins which we’ll look at below. First though, the wilds.

Book of Wilds feature

Rather unusually, Legacy of the Wild 2 comes with a pair of wild symbols. There’s a standard wild and a book wild. They both offer payouts of up to 66.66 x bet if you land 5 in combination.

The book wild also has some extra magical properties. Land a book wild during the base game and all instances of 1 or 2 of the lower value symbols are removed from the reels for the current set of collapses. Things can improve still further during the bonus feature which we’ll look at now.

Free Games feature

Legacy of the Wild 2 Free Games feature

Instead of landing scatters, the Free Games feature is triggered by landing 5 or more collapsing reel wins in a row. Each collapse lights a crystal ball on the Wave-o-Meter. The more collapses, the larger the number of free spins on offer:

  • 5 collapses = 8 free spins
  • 6 collapses = 10 free spins
  • 7 collapses = 15 free spins
  • 8 collapses = 20 free spins
  • 9 collapses = 30 free spins
  • 10+ collapses = 50 free spins

Whenever a Book Wild appears during the free spins, all the lower value symbols are removed from the reels for the duration of that set of collapses (rather than just 1 or 2).

Legacy of the Wild 2 Thoughts/Opinion – a very worthy sequel

Was the world crying out for a sequel to Legacy of the Wild? Probably not. Playtech has done a good job with this follow up though. The sound and visuals are excellent and the gameplay offers plenty of variety and potentially volatile action.

If you like the mediaeval magic theme, Legacy of the Wild 2 could certainly weave an alluring spell. If you’re looking for bigger potential payouts, the Buffalo Blitz 2 slot or the Legend of Hydra slot (both by Playtech) are better games in our opinion.
