Every so often a slot title is released that while it does not revolutionize the industry, gives players an innovative slot that breathes new life into the industry; Wildcano Slots, released by Red Rake Gaming, is one of those slots that draw players in just by being different than any other slot online. Wildcano uses what Red Rake Gaming calls Orbital Reels, a circular reel with spokes that connect the center with the circular rings that form the majority of the playing area. Wildcano has a single bonus game that can be quite generous and the game also features four random features that can occur at anytime after a spin of the reels.
The payline spokes that connect the center of the play area to the outside are three symbol paylines; players can hit a winning combo by filling the spoke with three of the same symbols and can create a six symbol win by finding matching symbols in two adjoining spokes that cross the entire play area. The symbols that players will find include diamonds, red 7s, mangoes, pineapples, bananas and four hieroglyphic symbols of different colors. The bonus symbol is a stone face with the word bonus; the panther is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol in the game except the bonus symbol.
Wildcano Slots uses a wagering system that is just as unique as the title itself; while the minimum wager is £0.08 and a maximum wager of £200, players wager 80 to 200,000 coins when they make these wagers. The game has a top prize of 20,000,000 coins or £20,000 that is available for bettors who make the maximum bet. The betting system is obviously created to make the wagers and wins look larger but the game really does not need any help in this matter and makes the wagering system confusing when it does not need to do so.
Wildcano Slots does have a traditional bonus round and it is generous; three bonus symbols anywhere on the paylines will trigger the bonus but the game can also add more bonus symbols randomly to the reels, giving players a chance for even more of the free spins that the bonus feature awards. It is the random features that the game gives to players at the end of any non-winning spin that creates the excitement of this title. With Earthquake, the game will randomly rotate one, two or three of the reels giving players a second chance for a winning spin. Magma fills two paylines with lava burning off the original symbols and replacing them with new symbols. Pyroclasts causes the volcano to randomly spit burning pyroclasts that change some of the symbols into wilds. Sacrifice can occur after a winning or non-winning spin and all non-paying symbols are burned and replaced with all new symbols that give the bettor an extra chance at another winning payline.
Wildcano Slots succeeds on many levels; it gives players a unique playing experience, it proves that slot games can be created that do not follow the tried and true way of creating titles and create an experience that players will return to again and again simply because it provides an experience that no other game has given them. Wildcano may not be the game for every player, it is a great choice for those players who are not afraid to try something different during their online gaming session.
