Wild North : A Scandinavian Wilderness-Themed Video Slot by PlaynGO
Wild North video slot takes players to an exhilarating slot adventure of coming across majestic creatures that inhabit the Scandinavian forests. Containing five (5) reels and 40 fixed-paylines, Wild North is a PlaynGO original video slot, inspired by the breathtaking scenery that naturally surrounds the PlaynGO headquarters in Sweden.
Showcasing some of Scandinavia's forest denizens such as the lynx, the brown bear, the reindeer, the owl and the wolf, the Wild North video slot uses their images in bringing around seven (7) bonus games. A Scandinavian phenomenon, the Northern Lights, takes on form in this PlaynGO video slot as the Scatter Symbol that brings around the Northern Lights Bonus Game.
The Wild North Wild Lynx Wild Symbol
The Lynx icon takes center stage as the game's Wild Symbol. Substituting for any regular symbol, the Wild Lynx comes to the screen as a regular Wild in both the base game and free spins round. Except that in the Bonus Game, the Lynx Wild Symbols appear as Stacked Wilds
The Wild North Bonus Wheel and the Northern Lights Bonus Game
This Wild North bonus game feature is called Northern Lights Bonus Game. Activated by the simultaneous appearance of three Northern Lights Scatter symbols, it has a Wild North Bonus Wheel that determines which of the following seven bonus games will be played:
The Great Wilderness Free Spins Game, awarding three bet-free spins that could generate Mega Symbols of each featured Scandinavian wildlife. A Mega Symbol here is a full-blown 4×4 illustration of a Wild North slot animal, spanning reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Only the first reel contains three different tiles. This means that if one of the animals appearing on Reel 1 is the same as the Mega Symbol, the rest of the reels are already a match.
The Wild Lynx, also awards three free spins but with guaranteed Stacked Wild Lynx symbols appearing in Reel 1 or Reel 2.
The Wild North Explorer Bonus Game is a Click-to-Reveal-the Mystery-Prize type of game. The mystery boxes contain varying coin prizes. It can also extend to another bonus game if the box reveals The Great Wilderness and the Wild Lynx bonus game icons. However, a Wild North Explorer bonus game ends if the box reveals an X mark.
Running Reindeer Free Spin bestows a single bet-free spin that guarantees the appearance of the Reindeer symbols stacked on 2, 3, or 4. A re-spin could occur if the Reindeer icons create a full 3×3 block, and covers all three reels.
Savage Bear Free Spin also awards one free spin that comes with a win multiplier symbol that increases the win value of the bet-free spin anywhere from 5x up to 30x.
Wolf Pack Bonus is another single spin free turn that produces a blown-up 2×2 image of the Wolf icon. Here, the wolf symbol serves as a Sticky Wild symbol. If regular Wolf icons appear in addition to the 2×2 wolf image, the reels automatically launch a respin until a win is achieved.
Eyes of the Owl another one-spin free turn that delivers a blown-up 2×2 image of the Owl icon. Similar to the Wolf Pack free spin, the Owl is Wild and Sticky to launch into re-spins until a win is achieved.
In all of the seven bonus games, the Northern Lights Scatter Symbol is not active.
Wild North video slot brings to the reels some of Scandinavia's wildlife, not only as reel icons but as theme of bonus games with special win-boosting attributes.
