ALL ABOUT WILD PLUNDER SLOT
Fans of NextGen slots have had a mixed bag of games to pick from this year – King Kong Fury and Flame are slots of note, but not all have hit the mark. Their latest release is a low variance title with not much in the way of payouts – just 400x per spin.
In fact one of the most interesting things about this game is the moving background behind the reels – watch as oceans and islands go past on a curved horizon. Or perhaps that is a little unfair – there are lots of wild features to get stuck into and a bonus round with free spins and re-triggers.
Let’s find out more …
Wild Plunder Game Set Up
NextGen’s Wild Plunder is a 5 reel game with 3 rows and 25 fixed paylines paying out from left to right for 3 or more identical adjacent symbols. This slot can be played from 25c up to $625 per spin. The reel-set floats above a tropical blue sea and islands float past in the distance.
Wild Plunder is a low variance game with a 96.6% RTP.
Wild Plunder Game Symbols
There are four low value symbols on the reels. These are coins of wood, bronze, silver and gold. The four premium symbols are the jars of ale, treasure chests, ghost pirates, and a pink octopus. The latter is the highest paying of these symbols at 14x for five on a payline.
You should also look out for Rhonda, the main character from the game and also the Wild symbol which replaces all others on the reels to form a payline. There is also a Kraken character that is important for the main feature. More on that in a minute.
Wild Plunder Slot Features
Base Game Random Features
There are three randomly triggered base game feature in Wild Plunder. They are as follows:
Wild Current: You can gain an extra NINE wild symbols on the reels when a storm comes up and spins the globe, giving you more chances to win.
Rhonda’s Re-Spin: If a single wild pitches on its own on the reels, then Rhonda appears to award a re-spin with your wild stuck in position.
Release the Kraken: More Rhonda wilds are added randomly to the reels when the Kraken lands.
Wild Plunder Free Spins Feature
The big feature in Wild Plunder is the Free Spins round. Here you require two or more Jolly Rhonda Wilds on the reels in one spin to claim five free spins. The key here is the Walking Wilds mechanic. After each spin, the wilds on the reels will all move one place to the left and one premium will transform into a wild.
This is your chance to fill the screen with wilds and hit the top 400x payout!
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Not NextGen’s finest hour that’s for sure. But if you prefer low variance bonus fodder then you might enjoy Wild Plunder. This is a fun little game for a short while, and the moving background is quite entertaining. To be in with any chance of a decent win of course you’ll need to be in the free spins round where the Walking Wilds are a neat trick. One to pass the time whilst you wait for the big BTG release of the autumn!
