Infective Wild Overview
It’s that time of your again, the beginning of autumn, so we are getting ready for Halloween. Well, I say we, of course Halloween is mainly an American holiday. But more and more people in Europe are also celebrating it, in some way. If that’s a good thing, I don’t know. But it is nice that we see a lot of spooky themed slots around this time.
And now Pragmatic Play released their title called Infective Wild.
This game features a really dark and spooky background, Halloween Jack next to the reels and all sorts of creepy symbols.
You will find 5 reels that are each 5 symbols high and the game uses 40 lines.
Besides low paying card symbols and Halloween themed medium to high symbols, which by the way can all appear stacked on all reels, there are also wild and scatter symbols. Scatter symbols can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. While wild symbols, which are a pumpkin, can only appear on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Infective Wild comes with a maximum payout of 5.000 times your bet and is a high volatile slot game.
Infective Wild Features
When one or more wild symbols appear and a wild is connected to a cat or raven symbol, either horizontally or vertically, the connected cat and raven symbols will also become wild. But also all cats and ravens that are connected to those symbols.
Free Spins Features
Getting all three scatter symbols at the same time will trigger the free spins feature.
Before free spins start 8 small slots will spin to reveal 1, 2 or 3 free spins. These are all added together to determine your total free spins. Which is a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 24 free spins.
During free spins, any wild symbol that appears will become sticky and stay on the reel until the end of the bonus. Infective Wilds are also still active, but the cats and ravens that become wild won’t become sticky.
You can’t win more free spins during this bonus.
Some casinos offer the option to buy free spins for 100 times your bet.
Of course there isn’t that much you can do with a Halloween theme. It’s spooky, scary or creepy. You can use a regular theme and make it scary, or just use a classic Halloween theme, like Pragmatic Play did with this game. Which works well. I think it looks nice.
The features are nothing new, we’ve seen wild changing other symbols in wild before. And the free spins feature reminds me a lot of The Dog House, a very popular game from the same provider. But that’s fine. A lot of times providers use earlier releases and give it a Halloween makeover. Pragmatic Play at least added some new features, like the Infective wilds.
Overall Infective Wild is a good game. I was happy to try it and am sure I play it again in the future. This is one of those games that’s also fun to play, any time of the year, but might be overlooked because of the theme.
