Into The Wild Megaways is a new casino slot from Blueprint Gaming set in a wild desert landscape among wolves, bison, and bears. It has nothing to do with the critically praised film Into the Wild, which is a story about a young American who leaves his sleepy suburban life to live in his van in the middle of nowhere. The game is far from sleepy, too, with cascading wins on Megaways, making up to 117649 ways to win, and a free spins feature with a constantly growing multiplier. Pack your bags and bring all you need to survive the wilderness.
Into The Wild Megaways is a video slot from Blueprint Gaming with 6 reels and a changing number of rows from 2-7. The ways to win are between 1024 and 117649, depending on how many symbols land on the reels. The Min.bet is 0.20, and the Max.bet of 100 can be boosted to 125 by using the Wild Bet that adds 25% to the stake. The RTP is 96.1%, and players have a better return with the Bonus Buy’s RTP of 96.44%. Into The Wild has a medium/high volatility and a stated max win of 50000X the bet, but we’re somewhat skeptical that anyone will reach such high numbers.
You will notice that both expected and unexpected things can happen in the wild. To make the best of your stay, make sure to use the features Cascading Wins, Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Trackers (Extra Reels), Free Spins, Wild Bet, and Bonus Buy.
No, Into The Wild has nothing to do with the movie released in 2007. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with Eddie Vedder’s amazing soundtrack either. The music is a pretty laid-back guitar tune in singer-songwriter style but without lyrics. We’re in some abandoned desert landscape, with dry red grounds and rocky formations covering the sides. The grid is placed in the middle of the screen, and to the left is the Megaways counter, saying how many possible ways to make a win there are on each spin.
There are two extra reels running horizontally, instead of the regular vertical way, over and under reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. The symbols landing on those reels are used in the same ways as the other symbols in making wins – but with some extra perks. The minimum number of symbols on the regular reels is two, meaning that the first and sixth reels can have a minimum of 2 symbols, and reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 can have a minimum of 4 symbols, counting the extra reels. You make a win by landing at least 3 symbols of the same kind on adjacent reels from left to the right. All wins must start on the first reel to the left. Into The Wild Megaways is available on all devices such as desktop computers, notepads, and mobile phones.
The lower-paying symbols in the wild are 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. Landing 3 of them will only give you 0.1X-0.2X the bet, and making a win of 6 symbols awards you 0.5X-1.5X the bet. The more valuable symbols are four wild guys in the shape of a wolf, a bison, an eagle, and a bear. They will give you 0.25X-1X for landing 3, and a 6 symbol win will result in 1.75X-10X the bet. The Wild Symbol, depicted by an animal footprint, substitutes all symbols except the Scatter Symbol, depicted by a golden roaring bear.
What is the max win in the slot Into The Wild Megaways?
You can win up to 50000X the bet according to Blueprint Gaming.
What features are available in the slot Into The Wild Megaways?
The features are Cascading Wins, Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Trackers (Extra Reels), Free Spins, Wild Bet, and Bonus Buy.
If you’re familiar with any other Megaways game, you know what this is about. Whenever you make a win, the involved symbols will vanish to make way for new symbols to fall down from above. If you make a new win, the involved symbols will vanish once again. This goes on until no more wins can be made.
The Wild Symbol is a bear’s footprint on the ground. It substitutes all paying symbols but not the Scatter Symbol.
The Scatter Symbol is a golden coin with a roaring bear face. You need to land at least 3 scatters to activate the free spins. Landing 3, 4, 5, and 6 scatters awards 8, 10, 12, and 14 free spins, respectively.
The game has 2 Trackers, one above and one under reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Each Tracker always displays 4 symbols, and they are used as the other symbol to make wins. If a symbol in a Tracker matches any symbol above or below on the same reel, that matching symbol will turn into a wild. If a wild symbol in the Tracker matches a wild on the same reel, all symbols on that reel will turn wild.
All you need is to land at least 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the grid to activate this feature. The free spins also have a multiplier, starting at 1X and adding +1 on every cascade. There’s no limit to how much the multiplier can grow. If you don’t reach at least 10X on the multiplier when you’re out of spins, you’ll receive an extra 4 spins.
By adding 25% to your bet, you activate the Wild Bet, which will double your chances of triggering the free spins. The RTP doesn’t change if you use this feature or not.
For 150X the bet, you’ll get to spin a wheel that awards you between 5 and 20 free spins. That was at least the case in the demo game we played. Blueprint Gaming says on their webpage that the Bonus Buy costs 100X the bet. Note that you can end up with more or fewer spins than you can win by collecting scatter symbols.
The Megaways are themselves pretty wild, and they’re a good start when putting together a great adventure. The volatility in Into The Wild Megaways is medium/high, so not as high as one might think, considering the setup and the game’s name. The extra reels, so-called tracks, are amazing, bringing a lot of extra flavor to the spins. The main goal is the free spins feature without any competition. It’s actually quite nice with a slot with one solid feature; you don’t have to think about anything else. That doesn’t mean the journey towards the free spins must be dull or boring. The cascading wins and the magic tracks help out making the game interesting.
Blueprint Gaming seems to claim that all releases these days have a max win of 50000X the bet. Several people, we included, are questioning if it’s really possible to land such a win. It would be great to see some numbers of the possibilities. The RTP of 96.1% is okay, but not more than that. If you’re purchasing the Bonus Buy, the RTP rises to 96.44%, but be aware that you can lose a lot of money fast. If you’re looking for another wild slot, don’t worry. There are tons of wild adventures out there. The cowboy Wild Wild Quest and the surf adventure Wild Water are just two examples.
Into The Wild Megaways from Blueprint Gaming takes the player on a wild journey with cascading Megaways wins and free spins with an unlimited multiplier.
