The character of Rich Wilde is definitely one of the most popular fictional names in the world of online slots. He is one of our favorite explorers loosely based on Indiana Jones. Prior to releasing this Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness slot, Play’n GO introduced several other Rich Wilde-based games including Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols and Rich Wilde and Pearls of India and each of these games feature rewarding adventures.
With this release, Play’n GO was inspired by Lovecraft’s literary work which features an impressive, fictional universe he calls the Cthulhu Mythos. This is where Rich Wilde heads in the Tome of Madness slot and players get to follow him. The game features 5 reels and a Cluster Pays gaming engine which allows consecutive winnings as in other video slots of this kind.
Visually wise, the game offers an almost magical, visual spectacle from the very first spin of the reels which await on this epic quest. The spinning actions in the Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness take place at the very heart of the Cult of Cthulhu. Symbols featured here include colorful stones which appear alongside other theme-related symbols such as pendants, golden rings, skulls and other.
The most valuable symbol featured here is the latter. Landing these symbols in winning clusters of ten or more symbols yields winnings worth up to 10x players’ stake. There are also several different types of wild symbols which help players win more generous winnings as soon as they hit the reels. What is even more, the character of Rich Wilde acts as the game’s most rewarding, multiplier wild symbols that besides replacing regular symbols also brings special, doubled winning payouts.
Since the Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness slot is a cascading slot, players form winnings by landing four or more matching symbols in a cluster positioned either horizontally or vertically. Moreover, once players get a winning cluster, all of the cluster’s winnings symbols get removed making space for new symbols to drop from the above and potentially form more winnings. What is, even more, is that every winning cascade or win contribute to the game’s Portal located on the left side of the reels.
The game is all about its wild symbols which come in different shapes and sizes. One special wild depicted as the Book of Madness replaces regular symbols as well as helps players scoop more winning clusters. During their sessions, players should also keep an eye on the game’s Eye Mask symbols. Getting winnings with these included add two special wild symbols into the game.
Moreover, landing a winning combination with these special wilds symbols activates the game’s Abyss Portal Effect. Once triggered, the game removes a column or a row from those winning wild symbols. After winning on twenty-seven symbols, the game adds two more special wilds and getting a winning combo with these wilds triggers the game’s Void Portal Effect mode.
Once triggered, void chooses one regular symbol and removes all of its matching symbols from the gaming grid. Then, after winning on forty-two symbols, players trigger the game’s Other World Free Round bonus mode. Once active, players receive one free spin with three random Portal Effects. The Riche Wild and the Tome of Madness slot actually features seven Portal Effects and each of them brings special wilds symbols into the game.
With so many special symbols included in the game and rewarding bonuses, the Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness slot can yield winnings going all the way up to 2,000x players’ stake. While the game may sound a bit complicated, it really gets simpler as soon as players hit the spin button.
