Wild Turkey Slots

Wild-TurkeyWild Turkey might be a game about turkey birds, but it’s also about the civilizations from Mexico that enjoyed them for a much longer time than we had a chance to. These birds were part of the North American wildlife and they’ve been discovered by the Spanish conquistadors and brought to Europe as well. This game takes the turkeys and makes them Aztec warriors, queens and priests, all characters that are dressed appropriately for that era, even though they’re just birds. It was created by Net Entertainment, a company you can rely on to get a high quality and unusual slot machine from.

There are 5 reels in Wild Turkey, which present you with up to 20 paylines to bet on. A game that uses the wild symbol in the role of the scatter as well, Wild Turkey gets you free spins and payouts of up to $20,000.

Features of Wild Turkey

The wild symbol is by far the most important part of the game, especially since it’s the one that also acts as a scatter symbol of sorts, capable of giving away free spins when it appears.

While in the base game, the wild is going to both substitute for other symbols and trigger the free spins for you. As a regular wild, it can take the place of another symbol, if its location is the right one and other matching symbols are already on the same payline.


Free Games Feature

As a scatter symbol, the wild’s position no longer matters, as long as a minimum of three are present, so that you can get the free spins. You will be presented with 15, 30 or 60 spins for free, if you have 3, 4 or 5 scattered wilds, respectively.

During the free spins is the only time when you will see stacked wild symbols on the reels. They can substitute for any other symbol, as usual, but they can take multiple positions on a reel if you’re lucky. If you get a stacked wild to cover a reel completely, you win an additional 2 spins for free.


Betting options and jackpots

You have a total of 20 paylines in Wild Turkey, but you don’t have to activate them all if you don’t want to, or if you can’t afford to. Each coin you select gets a value in the $0.01 to $0.50 range, plus you can use up to 10 coins for each line. There are line bets of up to $5, with total bets reaching $100.

In exchange, the game can give you up to 4,000x the line bet, or 40,000 coins. It sounds like a lot of money, but I’d say the ultimate value of $20,000 is only average.

Design and symbols

The mix of Aztec Empire images and turkey based characters is attractive, at least in the way Net Ent managed to do it. I’m sure you will find it just as enjoyable to look at, with an Aztec village visible behind the reels, with playing cards made out of stone on them, plus symbols with various turkey characters, dressed as priests, warriors, queens or kings.

Symbols: Wild Turkey Idol (wild), Turkey King (4,000x), Turkey General (2,000x), Turkey Priest (1,000x), Turkey Queen (600x), Turkey Soldier (400x), Ace (200x), King (150x), Queen (150x), Jack (100x) and 10 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

I’d say it’s worth trying out, it has an unusual enough theme and design that you will find that it’s not quite the same as all the other slots. Add to that the use of a wild symbol in the role of the scatter, plus the presence of the usual free spins with stacked wilds inside, and we have a winner as far as I’m concerned.

The Wild Turkey slot machine is offered through the Net Entertainment platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
