Midnight Wilds Bonus Features

As you might anticipate given its name, wilds are key to much of the best action on offer in the Midnight Wilds slot. They can liven up the base game and also get things racing when you trigger (or buy) the free spins bonus.

Random Wilds

The beautiful orange sun symbol is the game’s wild. It substitutes for everything apart from the bonus symbol. On any spin you could see wilds added to random positions on the reels. A 5-in-a-row combination made up of wilds delivers a payout of 20 times your total bet.

Midnight Free Games

The main feature round, the Midnight Free Games feature, is triggered by landing the bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then go on to play 8 free spins. Expect to see more random wilds during the free spins which can certainly get things moving.

Land 2 or 3 bonus symbols during the Midnight Free Games and another 2 or 8 free spins will be added to your total. There’s no limit to how many additional free spins you can add to your tally.

Buy the Bonus

If you don’t want to wait, you’ll have the opportunity to buy the Midnight Free Games feature. The price is shown in the meter in the top right-hand corner of the screen. This price isn’t static. If you land a spin that includes 2 Bonus symbols, you’ll see the price to buy the feature drop.

When you do take the plunge and buy the bonus, you’ll be given a choice. You can collect and play out the standard 8 free spins. Alternatively, you can spin and bonus wheel and try and increase the number of free spins awarded. If you gamble, the wheel will be made up of an equal number of segments showing 4 or 12.

If the pointer lands in a 4 segment, you’ll drop down to 4 free spins. Land in the 12 and the allocation increases to 12. You can gamble more than once if you wish. A successful run of gambles could lead to 40 free spins. Lose and you could drop the lot. The added wilds are in play if you buy the bonus, just like if the you win the Midnight Free Games organically.

Midnight Wilds Theme – inspired by the Northern Lights

Replicating one of the most amazing phenomena of the natural world is no easy task but Playtech has done an excellent job in Midnight Wilds. It’s superbly designed slot. With snow-capped mountains and forest in the background, the reels are backed by the shimmering green skies of the Northern Lights.

The high spec visual aesthetic is maintained on the reels. You’ll see 5 brightly coloured gemstone symbols as well as 5 more rewarding animal motifs. There’s a neon look to these animals which is very nicely done. The best of them is the tiger which pays 1, 10 or 20 times your bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

Complementing the excellent imagery is a gentle electronic backing track which is a nice fit for the theme. Playtech’s set up is very neat and tidy too. The buttons at the bottom of the screen are unobtrusive and reading the paytable and info details are easy to do.

Midnight Wilds Thoughts/Opinion – easy on the senses

You won’t see many better designed slots than Midnight Wilds. The sound and visuals here are terrific. The gameplay isn’t overloaded with extras but the free spins round has its charms, especially if the random wilds make an appearance.

The simple features might be a little too straightforward for some. We rather liked it though, with the stripped back gameplay matching lovely minimal design. The max win of 500 x bet is achievable with the random wilds too.

If the Northern Lights is on your travel bucket list, Midnight Wilds should get you in the mood. You should also try the Northern Sky slot by Quickspin which is just a beautiful.
