Yggdrasil Gaming’s Untamed Wilds Video Slot Review

Untamed Wilds: Demo

Take a virtual hike through the Scandinavian wilderness in Untamed Wilds, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. Look out for wild bears, moose and wolves which expand, add multipliers and duplicate depending on which mode you’re in. There’s also a free spins round. Play on all devices from between 8p and £100 per spin.

There’s a rugged, outdoorsy feel to the design in Untamed Wilds. With snow-capped mountains or dense woodlands in the background, you’ll see playing card suit symbols as well as 5 higher paying animals. The best of them is the big cat which awards 2.5, 10 or 30 times your bet if you see 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

The action here takes place in 3 different modes. The properties on offer from the wild vary depending on which zone you’re in. After 10 spins in any one mode you can randomly move to another mode. Anyway, here’s what to expect.

Bear Mode – the Bear wild expands into a cross formation, adding 1 wild above, below to the left and the right. This is called the Expanding Wild feature.

Moose Mode – the Moose wild awards multipliers in the Multiplier feature. The more wilds on show, the bigger the potential boosts:

  • 5 wilds give a multiplier of 7x, 8x, 9x or 10x
  • 4 wilds give a multiplier of 5x, 6x, 7x or 8x
  • 3 wilds give a multiplier of 4x, 5x, 6x or 7x
  • 2 wilds give a multiplier of 3x, 4x, 5x or 6x
  • 1 wild gives a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x

Wolf Mode – land a wild in this mode and it duplicates onto another position to deliver the best potential combination. This is called the Duplicate Wild feature.

Untamed Wilds also benefits with a Free Spins feature. It’s triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the bonus symbol on the same spin. You can then look forward to 7, 15 or 30 free spins. The wild extra from the zone you are in on the triggering spin is carried through to the free spins. For example, if you land the free spins in Bear Mode, the bear wild is in play during the feature. Landing 3 or more bonus symbols results in a re-trigger and another round of free spins.

This brush with nature is an impressive one. The design is as high spec as we’ve come to expect from an Yggdrasil Gaming video slot. The gameplay delivers plenty of variety too thanks to the 3 different wilds. Put all that together and Untamed Wilds is a trek we’re happy to make.

My favourite is the Moose Mode as the Multiplier feature can deliver wins of 2,500 times your bet on each spin or free spin with the 10x multiplier. If you like the setting for this game, Northern Sky by Quickspin is a good choice.
