Better Wilds Introduction 

What if the wild, a concept present in slot games since the very first "one armed bandit" machines, was... better? Playtech sets to answer this question with Better Wilds, a slot featuring two kinds of wilds. The first is of the regular kind, able to substitute for any symbol on the 25 paylines available in this 5-reel, 4-row slot. The second, however, is a bit special. Taking the form of a green diamond, this better wild can move, expand and even trigger respins. Intrigued? Read on, as this review of Better Wilds will try to answer any further questions...

Better Wilds Game Features

Better Wilds takes the form of a traditional fruit machine featuring 5 reels and 4 rows. All the symbols within are of the classic variety, including the red 7, bell, three flavours of bar (single, double and triple) and cherries. Rounding the reels off are the A, K, Q and J. The game offers 25 paylines in all, all of which starting from reel 1 and continuing from left to right. Spicing things up are the aforementioned wilds. The first, regular wilds can substitute for all symbols on a payline. The second are the special wilds. These appear on reels 3, 4 and 5, and while they still substitute for other symbols on a payline they also have some very special abilities, which we will get to in the Free Spins section of our review. 

Better Wilds Free Spins and bonuses 

Better Wilds lacks a scatter to bring a form of free spin feature. Taking this role instead are the special wilds. Hit one on reels 3, 4 or 5, and the respins start. With each respin the wild moves one reel to the left and expands by one symbol either up or down. This process continues until the expanded wild reaches reel 1, which is when the respins end and the wilds move off the reels entirely. That said, should you manage to get another special wild during the respins the process continues with the new wild, until there are no more green diamonds on screen. 

Better Wilds Payouts

Getting 5 of either the red 7s or wilds (be they regular or special) on a payline brings the highest payout in Better Wilds at 500x your initial bet. The golden bell is worth up to 250x, while the triple, double and single bars can earn you a maximum of 200x, 150x and 125x respectively. The cherries bring up to 100x, the K and A 75x and the Q and J 50x. 

Better Wilds Graphics and Sound 

While very much styled after the classic fruit machines, Better Wilds does add an extra bit of flair to visual proceedings. The shiny symbols are brightly coloured, and the blue backdrop comes to life with what looks like a laser lightshow. Further enhancing the atmosphere are a funky soundtrack and a set of distinctive sound effects. 

Better Wilds Conclusion 

Playtech brings a modern twist to the fruit machine with Better Wilds, as the bright visuals and sound combine with the unique special wilds to create something fresh and exciting. Play Better Wilds at Videoslots Casino today!
