Due to be released in April, on the 12th, The Wild Chase is going to take you into a world of car chases and rich people (or at least robbers that flaunt their new found wealth).
The game’s developers don’t make it immediately clear what this new game is about, but you do see a beautiful city in the background, on the slopes of a mountain, along with narrow roads that don’t seem very safe to drive fast on. The game is going to place 5 reels and 25 lines in front of its players, along with an interesting collection of features (respins, free games, multiplier wilds).
What We Love
An obvious first thing to talk about here is clearly the design of the slot. It’s a beautiful experience that Quickspin offers inside, with 100% themed symbols, meaning that you get various characters from the back story, you get expensive watches, car keys or cash, but what you don’t get is playing cards. The drawing style is a mix of realistic and painting like look, but the end result is very good. The beautiful image of the town in the background also helps out and makes it an even better looking game.
The Wild Chase has a Re-Spin feature, which you trigger simply by landing a winning combo on the reels. If that happens, the positions of that combo lock and the rest of the reels start spinning again. If new symbols appear on the same payline, they are locked in place as well, and then the reels continue to re-spin. The re-spins take place for as many rounds as you have new symbols added to that initial combination.
Should you land the scatter symbol, in at least three locations, you get access to 10 free spins. For each free spin that you go through, you also have one multiplier wild to help out, a guaranteed appearance which should make this feature a favorite for most players.
Multiplier Wilds are symbols which behave like regular wilds for the most part, substituting for the other symbols if they first land exactly where they’re needed to be of help. It doesn’t multiply only the win it contributes to though, and that’s something I haven’t seen before.
Having one multiplier wild used as a substitute will double all the wins of that spin by 2x. With two multiplier wilds doing their job, the multiplier for that round is 3x. Get three symbols of this type, and the multiplier is 4x. Finally, with four or more wilds, the multiplier is at 5x.
What We Do Not Like
I haven’t discovered anything to be unhappy about right now. I’m looking forward to hearing more about the slot’s payouts, as those might be the downside, given that 5x multipliers are in place to improve them.
I believe it will be a decent choice, at least based on everything I’ve seen so far in it. It has great graphics, good features and hopefully the prizes will be the kind that you want to go after.
