The Wild Machine slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge for The Wild Machine is 3.56%.
The Wild Machine is a 5 reel game that is 5 symbols high. The game uses traditional paylines with 40 in total, playing from left to right. However, on any random spin there is a chance that the symbol formation may change. There will still be 40 paylines and the same number of symbol spaces, but they will be positioned differently, moving from a standard 5×5 to a 1, 3, 5, 7, 5, 3, 1.
This slot has a sort of mad scientist/inventor feel to it. You can see this in the slot’s background and also in the way the reels change their formations at random.
Wild – Wild symbols substitute for all symbols other than Bonus symbols.
Scatters – Scatter symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and if you can land 3 of them you will trigger the Wonder Wheel Feature.
Diamond Grid – This is a random feature that will see the size of the grid change from 5×5 to 7 reels in the following formation1, 3, 5, 7, 5, 3, 1. When this happens reels 1, 4 and 7 will be fully stacked with Wilds.
Wonder Wheel – If you trigger the Wonder Wheel you will spin it to reveal either a number of Free Spins or an instant cash prize. There are two different Free Spins features available and you can choose which one to play:
Gold Foundry Free Spins – This set of Free Spins plays on the standard grid. On every spin between 2 and 5 reels will become fully stacked with Wild symbols and the feature cannot be retriggered.
Diamond Forge Free Spins – This set of Free Spins pays on the altered grid that is more of a diamond shape. You get 5 Free Spins but reels 1, 4 and 7 are guaranteed to contain Wilds. Every Wild that hits will remain in place for the remainder of your spins, which cannot be retriggered.
