Slot Wild Features Keep on Giving Players more Chances

As always slot machines make the headlines with their huge number of features, and so it has come as no surprise wild features are grabbing the most attention as of late.

We have seen a massive increase in the way wilds are being used on the slot machines with some of the features giving players huge pay-outs because when they come into play they make it virtually impossible to miss a combination win with reels just about cramming in as many wilds as possible. Other wilds have been paying out huge jackpot bonuses as a combination, while some multiply wins every time they complete a combination.

For those new to slots, wilds are almost as the name implies. They are a wildcard symbol that can act as a substitute for other symbols. To give an example of this, when you think you’ve missed with only 2 cherry symbols, and there is a wild on the same pay-line, as long as you have activated that pay-line by putting a stake on it, then you have a complete combination win. On top of this, if you have 3 cherries on an activated pay-line, and the wild is also in between or next to them once again on the same pay-line, this will be extend the pay-out value from a 3 symbol to 4 symbol combination pay-out.

More recently we have seen how this works over multi-line machines with 2 features known as stacked wilds and wild reels. Most slot players are swaying over to these virtual bad boys because when you hit one of these features there is an intense stream of pay-outs. Wild reels features change all the symbols on a whole reel or 2 whole reels, and sometimes 3 reels, into entire reels of wild symbols. This is more often than not on the middle reels, and so all pay-lines run through the wild symbols guaranteeing multiple combination wins. What’s more is the slots that contain this feature appear to want to advertise the fact they have this special feature by continuously letting its customers hit the feature time and time again in a single session.



Stacked wilds is slightly less intense as wild reels, but many slot players still look out for machines that role this one in. Instead of having single wild symbols randomly placed on reels in-between other symbols, stacked wilds will have 2, 3, or 4 wild symbols side-by-side on the same reels. This means a blocks of 4 wilds are rolling the reels giving players a much higher chance of landing a wild, and so an increased opportunity to roll in a combination win.

Some of these features are also rolled in with multipliers for completing a combination with wilds in it. This is pretty amazing to say least. Not only do wilds make it easier for players to roll in a combination or extend the value of a combination, they also reward players with x2 or x3 multipliers, so if you roll in 3 cherries with a wild, then this will count as a 4 symbol combination, after this if the pay-out is $100, that $100 will be multiplied by the wild multiplier. There are literally hundreds of slot machines that make use of wild multipliers, and it is a feature well worth exploiting.

Finally, wild jackpots have been a common sight with some brand names. The wild can complete or extend the value of any combination, but the jackpot because the jackpot is the wild symbol. Usually just 2 wild symbols on their own will complete a combination win while extending other combos on other pay-lines and symbols making it a powerful symbol.
