After Aztec Bonanza, Pragmatic Play is back with The Wild Machine. This time Pragmatic invites us into a mad scientist his secret lair where he has build a very special wild machine which can offer up to 7000 times your bet.
The graphics are again very cartoonish and good looking, much like we are accustomed to from Pragmatic Play. The game features a special grid which has a base game of 5×5 with a 1-3-5-7-5-3-1 arrangement. The pay lines are always set to 40. As usual, landing 3 or more matching symbols from left to right on the line will award you with a win. Betting is possible from 20 p/c up to £/€100 per spin.
The low paying symbols are the card suits, hearts, diamonds, clubs, spades, keys, compasses, and bags. The high paying symbols are a potion bottle, a big think leather-bound book, and the Crazy Professor which is the highest paying symbol. The Crazy Professor will award you 25 times your stake for 5 of them, if you hit a line of 7, the reward is a lot higher at 175 times the stake. Simple math learns us here that landing 7 of a kind versus 5 is 6 times more rewarding. The game also has loads of Wilds that randomly appear on the reels.
These Random wilds are actually triggered by our Crazy Professor. When he pulls the wild machine lever, the grid transforms into the 1-3-5-7-3-1 configuration which gives wilds on reels 1, 4, and 7.
The Wonder Wheel:
If you are lucky and land a minimum of 3 scatters on reels 2, 3, and 4 the Wonder Wheel feature is triggered.
The wheel is divided in 30 slices of which adjacent cells of 5 are cash prizes and the other ones are the free spins. If the wheel halts on a cash prize, it can move forward and keep collecting prizes, this up to 5 in just one spin. If you land on a Free Spins slice, you will be given the below 2 option.
- Gold Foundry Free Spins: this round has 8 free spins and uses the normal 5×5 format. On every spin, between 2 and 5 reels are randomly selected to become completely wild.
- Diamond Forge Free Spins: this round has 5 free spins and uses the 1-3-5-7-5-3-1 format. The game always has wilds on reels 1, 4, and 7. If you land another wild in any of the other reels, it will remain there for the rest of the spins.
Overall I found this game to be very enjoyable with it’s great graphics, nice sound effects and volatility which offers up to 7000 times your stake.
