The popularity linked to fantasy-themed slots increased in the past years which is probably related to popular series such as Game of Thrones, Outlander, Stranger Things, Lucifer and so on. Fantasy is cool, especially when mixed with reality for an even better experience! It’s therefore that NetEnt released a good number of fantasy-themed slots over the year like Warlords™, Steam Tower™, Wings of Riches™, and Magic Portals™ with the Wilderland™ slot added in 2020. This time you’ll be taken to the heart of an enchanted forest where you’ll follow an elven huntress into an enchanted forest to see what treasures could be found.
Filled with magical activity, you’ll find an enchanting spot to hang out in the Wilderland™ slot. In this fantasy themed NetEnt slot, you’ll be hanging out in a dark forest, but it’s the magic that gives the place its charm. Add to that the elves on the reels in the company of a fox while a bow with arrow, pendants, rings, and leafy card symbols have been added for the finishing touch. To make this slot experience more magical, a heavenly sound has been added to enhance the enchanted mystical atmosphere of the game.
Most of the magic in the Wilderland™ slot is to be found in the attractive video slot feature with the Free Spins feature in particular where you’ll reach the peak of the Activation Zone with potentially unlimited Free Spins, while the elven village also hides the Forest Treasure feature with 4 types of Walking Wild symbols and the Magic Wild feature!
Offering a low to medium volatility, this game is mainly created for the standard players among us and the minimum bet of 0,20 fits that picture perfectly. More common these days in the NetEnt slots, no betting lines have been added to the reels in the Wilderland™ slot which means coin values are the only way to get from a minimum bet of 0.20 to the maximum bet of 400.00. To get to this maximum bet, there’s 30 coin values available which will help you to get to your preferred bet.
Wilderland™ slot features
I kept the intro rather short as there’s a lot going in the Wilderland™ slot when it comes to the video slot features and it all starts with the Activation Zone on reels 2, 3 and 4 during the main that helps you to trigger the Forest Treasure feature while this same Activation zone is being extended during the Free Spins feature.
The centre of the reels is where the magic happens as the Activation Zone which means the middle row will be adding to the excitement of the main game in which you’ll be able to activate the Forest Treasure feature which is the game’s main attraction. Activated when two or more Wild symbols land next to each other in the Activation Zone, these Wilds will turn into one of the four Walking Wild symbols. The Regular Wild can appear on any reel during the main game, as well as in Free Spins, where it will substitute for any other symbol.
Walking Wilds will cover an entire reel with a stack of regular Walking Wild symbols, x2 Walking Wilds award a multiplier to winning combinations, and Scatter Walking Wilds count as Scatters boosting the probability of Free Spins activation. A Stacked Wild usually disappears from the reels after one spin, but a Walking Wild won’t as it’ll move one reel to the left with each coming spin until no reel is left to walk to. This latter might be prevented as Magic Wild feature will help you make the most out of Walking Wild symbols. The only function of the Magic Wild feature is to bring the stack of Walking Wilds back to the reels, to the rightmost reel to be precisely, for it to walk the entire path again to the leftmost reel.
Collect 3 Scatter symbols to activate an unknown number of Free Spins when the forest’s magic is at its peak as the Activation Zone will be expanded with all three rows, the entire play area, to become Activation Zone. This expansion will be increasing your chance to win new Walking Wild symbols when two Wilds appear anywhere on the reels to activate a Walking Wild. Again, the Magic Wild feature can return any number of Walking Wild symbols to the reels and it’s therefore that you can enjoy unlimited Free Spins, at least as long as Stacked Wilds are walking along the reels.
When activating the Free Spins feature, one Walking Wild symbol in the middle of reel 5 during the first Free Spin will be awarded. Each additional Scatter symbol activating Free Spins awards one additional randomly placed Walking Wild or x2 Walking Wild symbol during the first Free Spin. As long as Walking Wilds are walking, with the Magic Wild feature helping to turn Walking Wilds back to the reels, Free Spins won’t end. This all results in a minimum of 6 Free Spins and an unlimited number Free Spins available. May your stroke of luck be a long one!
