Wild Pops Slot Review

Released July 2020

The Wild Pops slot is produced by Yggdrasil Gaming. Yggdrasil Gaming take their name from Norse mythology, emphasising their Scandinavian roots. The Yggdrasil is a magical tree where dragons lived and Odin sacrificed himself. Yggdrasil Gaming have quickly established themselves as a consistent developer of quality slots. They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file. The House Edge of Wild Pops is 3.8%.

Wild Pops is a 5 reel slot, with each of the reels containing 3 symbols. Instead of paylines you form wins when you land 3 or more matching symbols across adjacent reels.

Theme

There is no obvious theme to this slot. There is a mix of different sorts animals that could be taken from a number of different themes. If this slot is about anything it is the Pop Wins mechanic, which I will describe below.

Pop Wins Mechanic – Every time a symbol forms a win it will disappear, leaving behind two empty symbol spaces, which are then filled with 2 new symbols. Essentially you are increasing the size of the reel that the winning symbols land on by 1 symbol space each time. This will subsequently increase the number of winways, which if you can expand each reel to its maximum of 7 symbol spaces will reach 33,614, compared to the 486 the game starts with. As long as you keep landing wins the size of the reels with continue to increase, up to a maximum of 7 symbol spaces. The reels will reset once you fail to land any subsequent wins.

Special Symbols

Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Bomb”, which will substitute for all other symbols.

High Symbol – There is a high paying symbol that is only available as part of a pop win.

Bonus Features

Random Wilds – Landing 3 wins in a row will see 2 Wilds added to random symbol spaces on the reels. This continues indefinitely as long as you keep landing 3 wins in a row.

Multiplier – Once you have landed 7 Pop Wins the multiplier, which starts at 1x the bet, will increase by 1. The process continues when you land another 7 Pop Wins and continues to do so for every 7 you managed thereafter. Additionally, if you can get each reel to 7 symbol spaces then you will increase the Multiplier by 1.

Bonus Mode – If you can get all the reels expanded to the maximum number of 7 symbol spaces you will be awarded 3 extra lives. Instead of the round ending when you fail to land a winning combination you will be given a respin and that will give you another chance to win. Any multipliers you have gained will also remain in place. Once your lives have all been used up the Bonus Mode will end.

Conclusion

Following on from Pop Rocks, Wild Pops sees Yggdrasil head back for more of their Pop Wins mechanic and like that aforementioned slot Wild Pops is pretty much all about that single feature. Don’t get me wrong, it is a good feature and modifiers like the multiplier and expanding reels help to make it even more engaging. I definitely feel like Wild Pops is less one dimensional than Pop Rocks and it comes with a competitive enough house edge for me to recommend it.
