Take your chances with the wacky scientist down in his secret lab. The ultimate fun provided by Pragmatic Play called The Wild Machine is a 5x5 grid game that will definitely make you feel electrified. The grid can also alternate to 1-3-5-7-5-3-1 formation, but in both ways, the number of paylines stays at 40.
As we expect from our trusty provider, they truly brought something different to the market. This cartoon-like game is a great combination of good graphics, gameplay and some great features.
A shady underground lab, with the light, only coming through the big fans in the back is the best playground for our wacky scientist. On the right side of the grid, you can see our scientist floating on some kind of a hoover. But don´t worry, he is only there to help. The music is quite interesting and gives the game a nice flow.
The symbols are categorized into three types. First are the low paid symbols, represented through well-designed card suit symbols. There are also the medium paid symbols, which are the keys, watch and handbag. And of course, there are the high paid symbols represented by a potion, messy book, and the scientist himself. The scientist symbol is most valuable, as it can bring you wins up to 175x times the stake. There is a wild symbol which, not only replaces all other symbols, it can also get you the same wins as the scientist symbol.
The game has very high volatility which means that the prizes can surprise you at any moment. It could also go both ways, but if you are in a bad streak, don´t worry the scientist will find a way to help you. As for the payouts, they can climb up to a staggering 7000x the stake, so sit in your most comfortable chair, choose your bet from 0.2 up to 100, and enjoy the ride.
When it comes to features, Pragmatic Play really showed that they have the edge for thrilling ones. We already mentioned that the grid outlook can alternate throughout the game and that can happen randomly on any spin. It is called the Random Wild feature and when activated reels 1, 4, and 7 become completely wild.
The second feature is the Wonder Wheel feature. It is activated when three scatter symbols land on the reels, and the player then gets his chance to spin the big wheel. The wheel is split into 30 slices, 25 of them are reserved for cash prizes, and there are also 5 free spins slices. If the pointer lands on the cash prize, it can easily move and hold from one to five prizes in one spin. And if the pointer stops at free spins, the game provides us with two options.
First is the Golden Foundry free spins feature, and it brings you 8 free spins played on a 5x5 grid, while two to five reels will turn wild on every spin. And you can also choose the Diamond Forge feature which provides you with 5 free spins played on the alternate grid. Reels 1, 4, and 7 stay wild at all times and the extra wilds that land gets locked in for the duration of the feature.
This game will definitely spark the interests of many players. The design is amazing and will take the player straight to a scientist’s lair. Most importantly the game offers some great winning potential. Thanks to the features the payouts are more than satisfying. It has something for every player incorporated.
