The release of Wild Energy by Booming Games just proves that even the simplest thing such as electricity can be used as inspiration in the making of slot games. It has 6 reels, 4 rows and 25 ways for the player to land a winning combination. Players will see some very simple graphics, what is expected from the theme. But with the few fun features and the payouts they result in should satisfy most players’ expectations.
The game is pretty basic, but it is special in its own way, probably since it carries an every day and a bit unusual theme for a game. But then again, anything can be used to inspire and that means something as basic as electricity as well. The design might be basic, but the providers added some modern features to spice things up a bit.
There is not much to see in the background. There is the pretty orange and purple sky with some power towers framing the reels. I suppose there could have been some more play on the theme, but it works like this as well. The soundtrack is some pretty upbeat music with sounds effects of electricity zapping. It definitely boosts the energy for play at least.
The symbols are basic just like the theme but do have kind of an icy look fitted for the theme. They include the regular royals all in blue as the lower-paying symbols. Then there are bells, diamonds triple BAR symbols and lucky 7s as the high paying ones. The game also has a wild symbol that appears in the form of a lightning bolt.
The payouts are not going to be very frequent, but they will deliver when they occur. Players can win up to 5,000 times the bet in a single spin. The minimum a player can bet is 0,25 and the maximum is 75 coins per spin. The low volatility game has an average 95, 46% RTP which could have been better, but can be dealt with.
The features of the game are again nothing we have not seen before. They are fun, but there is nothing to differentiate them from any other slot games. The game’s wild symbol substitutes for other symbols in the game. There is also the Random Wilds feature that is triggered randomly adding 6 or more wild symbols anywhere on the reels to increase the chances of a bigger win.
The game also has a Bursting Wild Reels feature that is triggered randomly as well. It has reels 3 or 4 turned into bursting wild reels that can turn 1 or 2 additional reels wild. It also has the regular duty of substitution, meaning it will help out quite a bit in landing a satisfying payout.
Not only that, but there are Random Wild Reels and Random Wild Reels x2 features that will definitely surprise and maybe even reward the most.
Last but not least, the game has a +1 symbol that awards a re-spin when it lands on reel 6. There is also a re-spin symbol that awards 1 free spin as well when it lands on reels 2 and 5. What is great about them is that another reel comes into play making a total of 7. Also, reels 1, 4, and 7 turn wild and get locked in for a greater win to occur.
The game has a few interesting details that capture the attention, but for the most part, it is very basic. There is something appealing about its simplicity though. The symbols could have been a bit different but using the classics is never wrong. The features are nothing special, but they do provide decent payouts.
