The sounds and sights of this slot game make it amply clear that it has a Native Indian theme. The rolling drums and the buffalo are just two examples of this, we will tell you more. The game is brought to you by Playson. The structure of this game is fairly simple. You have a grid of 5 reels in 3 rows, and a maximum of 9 paylines to win from. The soundtrack is a little strange but it adds on to the overall sense of fun in this game. The symbols are accordingly represented in a cartoon style instead of photographic images. Apart from the bonus rounds, you also have an interesting gamble feature which helps you jack up your earnings.
Wild Hunter – RTP and Maximum Win
You can begin playing Wild Hunter from 9p per spin. We recommend you begin at that level to get a feel of the high volatility. Once you are confident of reading the game, you can bet up to a maximum of £45 a pop. There are several multipliers available in this game. Depending on the right alignment of symbols, you can win up to a maximum of 5000 times your stake. This game has MED variance and a reasonably high RTP of 95.95%. Like we said earlier, tread carefully around this game’s high volatility. You will get big wins for sure, but there might also be long dry spells. So just keep at it, and the rewards will come.
Wild Hunter Symbols
The symbols on this game take you back to the early years of man. Hunt, gather and eat were the 3 main activities then. The symbols of this slot game are equally basic. Here is a list of the symbols you can expect to encounter:
- Card Symbols (which are low paying)
Now for the special symbols which give added benefits as well as greater returns. The Wild symbol in this game is represented by a bare-bodied Indian hunter. He carries an axe and has his face painted. There are feathers stuck on his headgear. This symbol can be used to take the place of any other symbol during the game. This substitution can be done for any symbol except the Scatter. The 5000x jackpot we mentioned earlier is also triggered by this Wild. You get the bonus when all 5 reels show the Wild symbol of the hunter. If you only get 4 Wilds in a line, you still get 1000x. And for 3 Wilds, you get a consolation of 100x.
In this game, there are 3 variants of the Scatter. The painted totem pole, the bison, and the tomahawk are the 3 Scatter symbols of this game. When you get the tomahawk on the first reel and the bison on the fifth reel, the free spins feature gets activated. This gives you 10 free spins. Also, while this feature is on, you can see the tomahawk pursuing the bison from one side of the reel to the other. All the wins of this game are calculated from left to right. But for the Scatter wins, the order can be calculated in any direction.
Wild Hunter Bonus
Let us start off with the additional gamble feature of this game. This gets triggered every time you win. At that point, you can choose to activate the gamble mode. When you do so, you need to select any card of your choice. The dealer will also draw any random card. All you need to win is to ensure that your card is higher than the dealer’s. The flip side is that if you lose this gamble, your earlier wins also go with it. You can use this function up to five times consecutively. In case the dealer and you draw the same card, you have two options. One, you can ask for both cards to be dealt again. Or two, you can back out and go back to the base game.
The bonus winnings are provided by the right combination of the three Scatter symbols. When a Scatter is drawn right next to an Eagle symbol, a random multiplier gets activated. This could range from 2x to 50x of your wager amount. Similarly, the totem Scatter also has attractive payouts. This is the indicative list:
- 3 Scatters in a row – 5x
- 4 Scatter in a row – 20x
- 5 Scatters in a row – 100x
We found this game quite simple to play and master. The high volatility can be a dampener, but there are enough rewards to keep you interested. We loved the attention to detail while designing the game screen. Not only the symbols, but the blue sky, green grass, and the decorative wood carvings all serve to give a feel of the backdrop. We recommend this as a simple game which can help you make reasonably big wins while keeping you entertained.
