Microgaming has a huge network of loyal business partners and one partner which crafts games for the company’s Quickfire gaming platform is Neon Valley Studios. Neon Valley Studios always impresses with its games graphics and beautiful visuals and this is also the case with its Aurora Wilds slot.
As suggested by its name, the Aurora Wilds slot is inspired by the remarkable Northern Lights, all-natural light displays usually seen in the high-latitude areas around the Antarctic and Arctic. This remarkable phenomenon can also be seen from other regions including Iceland, Alaska, Canada, Norway, Sweden, and Finland.
This phenomenon is also known as Aurora which occurs as the result of solar winds and disturbances in the Earth’s magnetosphere. The most common Northern Lights appear greenish in color, while they can also appear as blue and red lights. Besides this theme, the Aurora Wilds slot also features a Native American vibe and inspiration. The game is packed 5 reels and 10 paylines.
Since it is crafted using the most modern HTML technology, it is accessible via all devices from just 0.10 credits up to 60 credits per line. The maximum payout offered here is 2,000x players’ stake which can be scooped thanks to the game’s Bonus Wheel mode, Re-Spin feature and loads of expanding wilds which come across the reels.
The Northern Lights are probably one of the most magnificent phenomena in the entire world as nothing can compare to the light display of Auroral Borealis which is neatly depicted in the Aurora Wilds slot. As players head north with the game, they get to experience this celestial, magnificent phenomenon as depicted through the eyes of the game’s developer.
In the backdrop, players will enjoy a stunning view depicting scenic mountains and a giant lake as they are neatly illuminated by the greenish Northern Light that also dance in the distance. The game’s developer also integrated an interesting, mysterious backing sound which definitely adds more to this rather pleasant gaming experience. When it comes to the game’s reels, they are packed with tribal style-crafted symbols that represent eagles, horses, turtles, fish, and rabbits.
Besides these higher-valued symbols, the Aurora Wilds slot also features a collection of standard playing cards as well as rewarding bar icons, and lucky sevens. The most valuable symbol out of these brings winnings worth up to 25x players’ stake. Apart from these regular symbols, players will come across wild symbols as well which in this game appear as expanding wilds that grant loads of re-spins.
The Aurora Wilds slot does not feature a Free Spins bonus, but it comes packed with loads of re-spins. This bonus feature comes into play every time players land a bonus wild symbol. These wilds can only land on those three middle reels and as they do so, they expand to cover all positions upon the reel they just landed. Once this happens, players are awarded re-spins. In the case of new wild symbols appearing on the reels during this bonus, the process repeats.
In other words, these extra wild symbols also expand. Besides expanding, they also lock along those previously landed expanding wilds and new re-spins are awarded. Naturally, this bonus feature ends when no additional wild symbols land during the Re-Spins bonus.
In addition to this bonus, the Aurora Wilds slot features a Jackpot Wheel bonus which players trigger with landing three bonus wheel jackpot symbols on reels two, three and four. This bonus mode guarantees one of four rewarding, fixed jackpot prizes that include Mini, Minor, Major and Grand Jackpots worth 15x, 50x, 100x and 2,000x players’ stake.
In terms of its gaming mechanics and visual style, the Aurora Wilds slot looks like several other games of this kind including Starburst by NetEnt. However, the Aurora Wilds slot has something that many games lack and that is its rewarding Jackpot Feature which brings amazing 2,000x players’ stake worth payouts. The game’s regular payouts of 500x their stake are not disappointing as well.
