You create wins on the Born Wild video slot when matching symbols appear on any 20 pay lines. The symbols must run from left to right, starting from reel 1, and be on adjacent reels. The game takes place on five reels and four rows.
The Born Wild slot is open to all players of all budget sizes, whether they are beginners or experienced at slots. You can stake with as low as €0.20, while the maximum bet is €100. This is calculated by multiplying the stake per line by 20.
The game has different buttons used to control the gameplay and spin the reels. The Autoplay allows for hands-free gambling while you're on the go, while the Turbo speeds up the gameplay. There's even a button for Buy Bonus.
The game symbols are very fitting to the theme of the game and they trigger payouts and bonus games as you play.
The comic-book style signs are the lower-paying symbols of this slot. They include HOWL, CLAW, HISSS, GRRR, and ROAR, all offering the same payouts. If you land five of these symbols, you get 1x your stake.
As for the symbols offering higher payouts, look out for fierce animals. The Wolf and Hippo will give 10x your stake for five of them on a pay line.
Then, the Gorilla and White Tiger symbols will offer 150x your bet when five of a kind appear on the reels. The most valuable payout here is 25x your bet, gotten with five Snake symbols.
The Tiger is the Free Spins symbol, and there is also the WILD symbol. Another special symbol is the Lion. They both offer unique features but no other payouts in the base game.
When it comes to the Born Wild bonus features, we'll start with the Wild. This symbol can replace other symbols and complete or increase a winning combination. It can't replace the Free Spins symbol.
With three or more Lion symbols on the reels, you enter the Lion's Roar bonus features. In this bonus game, you get Respins until there are no more Lion symbols on the reels. As long as Lion symbols keep on landing, the reels will respin and winning combinations will offer you payouts. If you fill-up the entire reels with the Lion symbol, you get the Super Mega Win of €10,000,000. If not, the last spin will turn all the Lion symbols to Wilds and create multiple wins at a time.
The Born Wild Free Spins game is activated when you land three Tiger Scatter symbols or more. You get 10 Free Spins and all the Wilds that land on the reels will become Sticky and locked in place for the entire Free Spins game. The game stops when you exhaust the Free Spins.
You have the chance to dive right into the special features with the Bonus Buy option. You will enter the Lion's Roar feature with extreme volatility, although the cost depends on your bet size. With a €1 stake, you pay €129 to enter the Lion's Roar game.
The Born Wild RTP is 93.8% in the base game, and 93.78% when you're playing with the Bonus Buy. This is a bit of a letdown, as it doesn’t even crack the industry average. The slot's volatility is incredibly high, so expect explosive wins occasionally.
