The Aurora Wilds slots game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of Aurora Wilds is 3.8%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.
Aurora Wilds is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game uses traditional paylines, with 10 in total playing from left to right and right to left.
Wild – The “Feather and Gem” is the Wild symbol, which will substitute for all other symbols other than the Jackpot Trigger. Wild symbols only appear on 2, 3 and 4 and every Wild that lands will expand to form a Wild reel and will award a re-spin.
Jackpot Trigger – The Jackpot Trigger will trigger the Jackpot when you land 3 of them anywhere on the reels. Jackpot Trigger symbols are only available on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Wild Re-Spins – Any Wilds that land will fill the reel, which will stick in place whilst all the other reels re-spin. If you land another Wild the process will repeat. You can only achieve a maximum number of 3 additional respins.
Jackpot – If you trigger the Jackpot feature then you will have to spin the Jackpot Wheel to see which of the 4 available Jackpots you can win. The amount available for all 4 Jackpots are displayed above the reels.
Aurora Wilds has a lot in common with the last slot released by MicroGaming. Like Banana Odyssey, you get expanding Wilds and you get respins. However, this time instead of Free Spins you get a Jackpot and the house edge is slightly less favourable. The slot looks good, making the most of the theme but for me, that increase to the house edge would make me want to head for monkeys in space instead.
