Wild Scarab Base Game Features
Wild Deal Feature
In the base game if you land a non-winning spin combined with a wild landing anywhere on the middle reel, then 4 extra wilds will be placed randomly across the reels.
Wild Scarab Free Spins Feature and Stashed Wilds
To trigger the free spins feature you must land three or more of the high-paying scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. When you do you are credited a cache of 10 free spins. During this bonus round, if you land a spin with wilds in it without a winning line then your wilds are stashed.
Then, once you have collected three stashed wilds they are automatically thrown back out onto the reels to create a GUARANTEED winning line.
More free spins are then added to your cache and you keep playing until they are all used up.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
This is not a game for the big money thrill seekers out there. It’s a pleasant enough slot, and very reminiscent of another Microgaming title, Dragonz. The graphics are fine, but it’s light on features. There is little risk here – it’s a low variance game – but good enough to play your bonus money through and can deliver a few decent spins in the free spins round.
