Director of games for the provider, Bryan Upton said that the game, which has an elven princess as its main character and highest-paying symbol, was a favourite of his. He explained that the slot includes features such as Walking Wilds, Expanding Stacks, and Multipliers.
Upton added that he expected Wilderland to be one of the provider’s strongest titles in 2020, and that he was keen to see how players respond to the game.
Set in a darkened forest aglow with eldritch light, the Wilderland reels display symbols that tie in with the theme. The higher-paying online slot symbols include a ring with a flower-shaped jewel, a crystal pendant, a bow and a quiver of arrows, a fox, and the elf princess.
The bonus symbols include the framed letters S and W, while the lower-paying icons include leaves in the shape of playing card hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs. The betting range is one that low and high rollers should appreciate, as it starts at a relatively low 0.20, and increases to as much as 1000.00 per spin. The online slot has an RTP of 96.16%, and its volatility is low to medium.
The Wilderland Wild symbol substitutes for all regular icons. However, if it lands in the Activation Zone, which includes the entire middle row of the grid, it includes other functions.
In that case, it can act as a Multiplier to increase payouts, or it can expand to fill a reel. The symbol also becomes a Walking Wild, which means it will move 1 position to the left for each subsequent spin, until it vanishes from the reels. Wilds also can reappear on reel 5 after disappearing from reel 1, in which case they will move across the reels for another 5 spins.
The online slot’s Free Spins round is triggered when 3 or more Scatters land. During the bonus round, the Activation Zone expands to include the entire grid. Although the initial number of Free Spins awarded is determined by the number of Scatters that triggered the feature, they can be triggered indefinitely by the appearance and reappearance of Walking Wilds during the round.
Wilderland can be enjoyed on desktop and mobile and looks set to be another fine creation from NetEnt.
