Wild Games Slots

Wild-GamesWild Games was designed by Playtech, and it’s their own unique attempt at creating a slot machine which is themed around the Olympic Games. They didn’t just choose the usual images of athletes competing though, replacing them with various wild animals. You have rhino’s doing gymnastics, a running leopard and a bulldog that’s swimming. Various other types of balls and medals are also used by the game.

You will find 5 reels in Wild Games, which will host a maximum of 25 active lines. There are also multiple bonus games to go through, scatter symbols, wilds and even free spins. A top payout of $30,000 is offered as well.

Features of Wild Games

I’ve enjoyed the Wild Games features, which include about four types of bonus games, scatter symbols, free spins and wilds.

The slot’s wild feature is represented by the image of a Gold Trophy, with number 1 written on it and the game logo underneath. It’s a symbol which pays very well on its own, up to 3,000x the line bet being the value of the top prize which the game awards through this Trophy. Even if it doesn’t create a combo of two to five symbols, the wild can still be a substitute for another one, helping another type of combo form. It doesn’t substitute for the three medal bonus symbols though.

Win a Medal Bonus

The game has three types of bonus symbols with medals in them. It’s obviously going to be a gold, a silver and a bronze medal. Three identical medals have to appear scattered on the reels, in order for the Win a Medal feature to start. You are asked to pick one medal out of the ones that triggered this feature. Depending on the type of medal and the number of triggering symbols, the prize will vary.


Bronze medals can bring you prizes between 2x and 40x the bet value. Silver medals awards from 3x to 70x. The gold medals pay at least 4x the bet, and they go up to 100x.

Freestyle Swim Bonus

If you get the Bulldog symbol stacked over the entire 3rd reel, the result will be a bonus game called Freestyle Swim. A bonus game starts with a swimming event in it, where you pick one of the three competitors. Depending on which place your chosen bulldog finishes on, you win a medal and 8 free spins. The medal you won will be the only bonus symbol present during the free spins.


To retrigger free spins, you need medals of that type to appear. You receive 2 additional spins for bronze medals, 3 spins for silver and 4 extra spins for gold.

100M Dash Bonus

The triggering symbol for this feature is the Cheetah, which is needed stacked on the 3rd reel and covering it fully. Once again, you pick one of the cheetahs that are going to compete and the medal that he wins will offer you a certain advantage during the 8 free spins that follow next.


The only bonus symbol used in the free spins will be the medal that you won. The Gold Medal is an extra wild and it can expand on the entire reel. The Silver Medal will be a wild as well, and it will clone one other symbol from the same reel. Finally, the Bronze Medal is just an extra wild.

Balance Beam Bonus

The Rhino gymnast is the stacked icon which will trigger a feature when it covers the 3rd reel completely. The bonus game asks you to choose which balance beam routine the gymnast will perform. You get 8 free spins and a multiplier which is better when the scores from the judges are higher.


The multiplier which is applied to the wins obtained along the way will be between 6x and 10x.

Betting options and jackpots

You are allowed to select the number of lines which are active each round, by using the arrows found underneath the Lines title. You can use a maximum of 25 lines, which will give you 25 coins to work with. The value of a coin starts at $0.01 and can reach a maximum of $10. A maximum bet of $250 is possible per spin.

If you happen to land the right five symbols on a line, with the Gold Trophy on them, you get paid 3,000 coins, and that would mean $30,000 cash.

Design and symbols

Though it relies quite heavily on poker cards, Wild Games is a fun choice nonetheless. The background is a light blue and green, an abstract image which looks pretty good. The symbols are mostly poker cards with weird designs, the rest being athletes that compete in the Olympics or various medals and balls.


Symbols: Gold Trophy (wild, 3,000 coins), Gold Medal (scatter), Silver Medal (scatter), Bronze Medal (scatter), Bulldog (1,000 coins), Cheetah (1,000 coins), Rhino (1,000 coins), Football (500 coins), Baseball (200 coins), Ace (100 coins), King (100 coins), Queen (80 coins), Jack (80 coins), 10 (50 coins) and 9 (50 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The wildlife Olympics which are inspiration for this slot machine will prove to be a lot of fun, and the features of the game also do a lot to make it attractive. I’d recommend you try it out.

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