It felt like only yesterday we were seeing the first hints of the biggest slots coming in 2016. It's crazy that time has flown by that those slots are starting to take form. One of those slots was Quickspin's Wild Chase. Until now, all we knew about Wild Chase was its April 12th release date.
As we approach that release date, we now have our first solid look at the Wild Chase. And what we're seeing is setting out to be a fast paced ride. So without any further delay, let's rip it apart and see if there's a reason to want April to get here ASAP.
Wild Chase Breakdown
- 5×3 reel slot with 25 paylines
- £0.25 – £100 betting range
- Multiplier Wilds
- Re-spins & Free Spins feature
The overall breakdown is a pretty simple start. The slot comes with all the regular features of a Quickspin slot, such as its betting range and payline numbers. The features have been edited down to capture the general theme of speed, which we'll look at below.
The only key part of the slot we don't know about is the RTP. It's TBA for the moment, however, given that the last few slots from Quickspin were built off the same format and all come to about 96.2%, we can be confident it'll probably end up around that figure.
The first major feature of Wild Chase are multiplier wilds. By this point, most of us know the drill. For every wild symbol involved in a line, the payout for all winning lines of that turn will be multiplied.
- 1 multiplier wild symbol – All wins 2x
- 2 multiplier wild symbols – All wins 3x
- 3 multiplier wild symbols – All wins 4x
- 4 or more multiplier wild symbols – All wins 5x
Wilds not only now help you complete lines. The more wilds you get, the more you win, making them even more useful than regular symbols.
Bonus Spin Features
The Wild Chase slot comes with a re-spins and free spins bonus feature, that aim to make Wild Chase even more hectic.
Every time you spin a winning line of symbols, those symbols will be locked in place and a re-spin will be triggered. The slot will re-spin its reels every time a new symbol of that same type is landed on.
The obvious thrill of this, is if you have any multiplier wilds in play, then retriggering further spins gives you the chance to win even more.
Free Spins Feature
The classic free spins feature makes its appearance as well. However, in an attempt to avoid the regular affair, Wild Chase has put its own spin on the feature to further fit its theme.
Free Spins are activated by spinning 3 free spin scatter symbols. You then get 10 free spins. Sadly, free spins can't be triggered again during the bonus round, so you'll only ever have 10 free spins at any one time.
However, every spin in free spins mode, has one guaranteed multiplier wild. You can spin more than 1, but each win has a 2x multiplier added to it by default.
The Wild Chase Slot – April 12th 2016
Wild Chase is shaping up to be a solid release. It's not innovative and certainly isn't offering anything new. But what it has achieved is consistency. The slot is themed after action packed car chases and all of its features have been carefully selected to compliment that.
Multiplier wilds add the potential for massive bonuses and re-spins add a whole other layer of action to the slot. Add in a free spins mode that guarantees further multipliers and you have a slot that looks to be full to the brim with fun.
