What features are in the Van der Wilde and the Outlaws slot?
The features are Wild Symbol, Expanding Wins, Free Games and Super Spins.
The game's wild symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols on the reels. If a wild symbol is included in a win, the Expanding Wins feature is activated.
When you spin the reels and create a winning combination that includes at least 1 wild symbol, the Expanding Wins feature is activated. Then all the symbols that were part of the winning combination will expand and cover their respective reels. This creates more winning combinations and the only symbol that doesn’t expand is the wild symbol.
If you land 3 or more scatter symbols, the Free Games feature is activated. You will then be able to take part in 8 free spins and you can retrigger 8 extra free spins during the spins by landing the same amount of scatter symbols as when activating. You will then spin the reel to take part in any of the 5 options. There are Mad Dog, Buffalo Butch, Bonney Cassidy, Van der Wilde and Super Spins that you can land on. The character you land on will become the Super Symbol during the spins and this results in that you won’t be needing wild symbols to be able to expand it.
If you land on the Super Spins when activating the Free Games, the Super Spins feature will be activated. You will then be welcomed with 5 super spins and then you will spin on 4 different reel setups. Each reel setup has one of the four super symbols activated with its expanding characteristics. By landing 3 or more scatter symbols you get 5 extra super spins, and these super spins can only be retriggered once per spin.
Within this slot you get many hints about what the game revolves around, wild west, wild symbol and the surname Wilde. Yes, it is the wilds which is also the game's scatter symbol which is clearly the game's star. If you create winning combinations where this wild symbol is included, then all symbols included in this except the wild itself will expand and cover the respective reels. An expanding reels mechanic that we have previously seen in slots like Book of Dead, among others. The special thing about this slot is that the expanding effect can already take place within the base game and it is not a specific symbol type that only expands, which it is in most similar versions. The expanding symbols can quickly generate big wins, as iSoftBet has been very generous with the payouts on the various symbol types.
If you manage to land 3 or more scatter symbols, everything immediately becomes much more festive. Then you will be awarded a random super symbol or super spins. If you get a super symbol, this symbol will be able to expand on winning combinations even if no wild symbol is included. The large winnings from the expanded symbols is a fact and if you manage to activate the super spins, you are truly up for a treat. Then you will spin the reels on 4 mini slots, where each slot has its unique super symbol activated. It is true that there are only 5 super spins you can take part in from start, but it is possible to retrigger extra ones and after all you spin on 4 different slots.
It is a higher volatility, where this slot is included in iSoftBet’s Xtreme Pays series, where a higher volatility than usual is added but it can also generate larger wins than normal. Even if you have taken part in the expanding symbols mechanic on many previous occasions, this one gets a fresh look, where it can be activated in both the base and the bonus game. Where you can also activate the super symbols and super spins that give the opportunity for many expanding symbols. A bonus buy feature would have really suited perfectly, as despite decent base game spins, it is a bonus that you want. It is a slot where its features blend very well with the theme, where an atmospheric environment has been created. The background as well as the reels together with the music provide the perfect western environment that we really like.
Van der Wilde and the Outlaws is a slot where we, together with a bunch of adventurous cowboys, get to take part in a gaming experience that fans of expanding symbols will love.
