Wild Expedition Review
Nick and Cara will be your hosts in Wild Expedition, the latest edition of Red Tiger Gaming.
It seems that Lara Croft and Indiana Jones look-a-likes are on an expedition in the jungles of Central and North America, probably on the quest for ancient Aztec treasures.
The never-ending search for El Dorado is a constant source of inspiration for plenty of video slot developers, and Red Tiger Gaming decided to join two famous explorers in one casino game.
- Wild Expedition offers 3 additional features
- The game looks and sounds great
- Win up to 2,101x in a single spin
Some would say that the Wild Expedition video slot is a copy of Lord of the Wilds, featuring Tarzan, but we will leave it for you to decide whether this is true.
Spin the reels of a 5-reel, 4-row online slot that benefits from 30 fixed paylines. The game looks extremely good and offers some decent additional features.
Enjoy the Jungle Treasure, with Nick appearing randomly, guaranteeing wins. The Wild Kiss feature is also a random one, where Cara turns all Nick symbols into Wilds.
Finally, land Scatters to trigger free spins with locked Wilds. This medium to high volatility game offers a max win of 2,101x.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
When talking about the theme of the game, we can all agree that explorers looking for riches in jungles and long-lost temples is something that we see quite a lot in plenty of games.
The reels are set somewhere deep in the jungle. The entire reel grid is made of wood. Our guess is that Cara and Nick are looking for Montezuma’s treasure, which has been lost for centuries now.
Do not be afraid of the stone monster on the left side of the screen. It only looks scary. As for the soundtrack, it will be pretty convincing, and you may feel as if you are actually standing in a jungle.
It may happen that, from time to time, you try to remove the surrounding insects. Red Tiger Gaming got us used to video slots that boast crisp graphics and fitting soundtracks.
Cara and Nick, the two archaeologists, are also the top symbols on the reels. Every explorer carries a backpack and magnifying glasses.
Since we are on the ancient Aztec ground, it is no wonder that there are sun symbols on the reels.
There are three different additional features players can benefit from. First, we will begin with the Jungle Treasure feature, which is triggered randomly.
Nick is the star of this feature, randomly appearing on the reels, occupying cells, to provide you with a guaranteed win.
The other option of the Jungle Treasure feature is that Nick adds Scatters on the reels and maybe trigger free spins.
Cara is in charge of the Wild Kiss feature. This additional feature is also triggered randomly. When Cara appears, and once she lands next to the Nick symbol, she will turn Nick into a locked Wild for the next spin.
If she appears next to a previously locked Wild, she will lock it for the following spin as well.
Wild Expedition Free Spins
The Free Spins feature is triggered when three or more Scatters appear on the reels. Three Scatters will secure you 10 free spins.
For every additional Scatter landed on the triggering spin, players get 5 extra free spins. During the feature, Nick can also be turned into a Wild.
This time, every Wild will remain locked in its position until the end of the feature.
Where To Play Wild Expedition?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
Wild Expedition comes with an RTP of 95.67%. This is not that bad, but it’s lower than the average 96%. As for the volatility of the game, the Red Tiger Gaming product is a medium to high volatility game.
The game offers five reels, four rows, and benefits from 30 fixed paylines. The game pays left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Land at least three matching symbols on a line to win a payout.
The top payout is not as big as in some other Red Tiger Gaming titles. The most you can win in a single spin is 2,101x. Betting starts at $0.10, the most you can wager per single spin is $40.
We need to be completely honest and say that this is not the best work of Red Tiger Gaming. The visuals and the soundtrack seem as if we have seen this game before, maybe because there are so many slots with a similar topic.
On the other hand, additional features are pretty nice. It is good to know that both the Jungle Treasure feature and the Wild Kiss feature are available in the base game and the Free Spins feature.
We are prepared to give Wild Expedition 3 out of 5 stars, and we really hope that Red Tiger Gaming proves us wrong with this video slot. We are not convinced that it will be a huge hit.
