Legacy of the Wild : Collapsing Reels and Chain of Wave-Wins Lead to Free Wins and Free-Spins
Legacy of the Wild is a Playtech 40-payline online slot that runs on a game engine built with Collapsing Reels, instead of Spinning Reels. An assortment of 20 images appear as a wave of symbols that drop into 4 rows, then partitioned into 5 columns of tiles. Whenever a wave of icons result to at least one paying combi, the winning symbols disappear. New images will then cascade down the grid and fill only the open spaces left by the vanishing symbols; possibly resulting to a new wave-win event. If this goes on as a series of five consecutive wins, the game advances to the Free-Spins Bonus Round.
Another great thing about uninterrupted wave wins is that each succeeding win-event activates the Book of Wilds Feature. This is when a Book Wild in view expands by annexing a Page Wild on every contiguous wave win. The Wild Expansion therefore increases chances of hitting winning combinations, one after another, eventually leading to the activation of the Free Games.
Legacy of the Wild Online Slot: Wild Symbol and Book of Wilds Feature
The image depicting a Book of Wilds is of course, the game's Wild icon. Moreover, the Book Wild itself, can form a winning combination. As few as two (2) Book Wild images positioned in Reels 1 and 2, award 5 credits. If the arrangement is longer, let us say three, four, or five align as matched groupings in any payline, coin credits of 20, 100, or 750 will be awarded correspondingly.
The Book of Wilds Feature is a chain of Wild Expansion reactions, transpiring in the following manner:
• On the first win, a Book Wild in view is in its standard single-cell form.
• When a second win occurs, it adds a Page Wild on the left side of the Book Wild.
• Another Page Wild annexes at the bottom of the Book icon on the third wave-win.
• A third Page Wild appears at the top side of the Book Wild on the fourth wave-win.
• The final Page Wild adjoins on the right side of the Book Wild in the fifth win.
Now when the series of wave wins reaches a fifth winning event, the Legacy of the Wild Free Games activate.
Legacy of the Wild : Free-Spins Bonus Round
A so-called Wave-o-Meter located on the left side of the slot screen, keeps track of the number of wins occurring in succession. During an activated set of Free Games, wave wins that transpire immediately after the fifth win will keep the Wave-o-Meter going. This denotes that the number of free-spins awarded will continue to increase, for as long as the series of wins remains in progress.
A set of five (5) consecutive wave-wins sets-off five free-spins. The first of those bonus spins could likewise result to a 6th wave-win; possibly, even more. In any case, a series of 6, 7, 8, or 9 or more wave wins, will bring on as many as 10, 15, 20, or up to 50 Free-Spins, respectively.
In any number of Free-Spins played, the Book Wild will always appear in its Expanded Form; i.e. four (4) Page Wilds attached to the Left, Right, Top and Bottom sides of a main Book Wild.
Legacy of the Wild online slot works on a Collapsing Reels mechanism that removes winning symbols and replace them with new ones at no extra cost. A series of dropping and disappearing actions means a chain of win-events transpires, bringing additional payouts gained thru a single paid spin. Now the best part is when a Book Wild lands on the reels in any of those wins, because the Wild will likewise expand 4 times if continuity is sustained. The great news is that the succession of wins carry over to the Free Round, and could result to the awarding of more bonus spins.
