Wild North features a 4×5 reel layout with 40 paylines. Unfortunately, you cannot set the number of paylines that you want to play in a particular spin, so you would have to play the maximum number. At least you will be able to configure the amount you want to wager by tapping on the different amounts on the bottom of the game. Though not as flexible as other games, the bet range is somewhat reasonable and will suit a wide range of budgets for all players.
The one thing that we did not like at all in this game is the fact that we could not choose the exact amount that we want to wager in a single round. Though the amounts are reasonable, it still does not give us the full flexibility in deciding what to wager. The maximum payout in Wild North is £12,000 which is the industry standard.

The features in Wild North are just not ordinary ones that just add a little excitement to the game. On the contrary, the features has made Wild North what it is. Without any of these features, you will most probably end up losing all your cash in this game. That brings us to the most important part: The Wild Spin feature in this game does trigger quite often! That just means you are in for a big payday.
As you can see from the image above, all the features in Wild North slot revolves around the cold winters. You will find everything from the stunning Northern Lights to all the Arctic animals such as wolves, bears, lynx’s and so on. Altogether there are seven different features, namely:
- The Great Wilderness – Mega symbols will be available on reels 2-5, and 3 free spins will be given
- Wild Lynx – The Wild Lynx symbol will cover 2 reels, and 3 free spins will be given
- Running Reindeer – One free spin awarded. Subsequently, a free re-spin is given if the Reindeer symbols cover all reels 2, 3 and 4 or create a 3×3 block
- Savage Bear – One free spin awarded, and 5x – 30x multiplier is triggered
- Wolf Pack – One free spin, if Wold re-appears, another re-spin is given. All wolf symbols are sticky
- Eyes of the Owl – One free spin. Owls will stay sticky, and if you get another Owl one or more re-spins will be awarded until you get a winning combination
- Wild North Explorer – You can select from 20 tiles that appear on the screen to reveal cash prizes or trigger any Wild Feature. You may continue to select until you reveal an X or a Wild Lynx bonus feature.
This is where all the surprise lies. Each feature is independent, and when triggered, you will get anything from free spins, win multipliers, all the way to cash prizes!
