Playtech have delivered a rather mysterious title with their Legacy of the Wild slot game that carries plenty of appeal for players of all levels and abilities.
Following a theme that is far from what we experience today, our Legacy of the Wild game review will take players on the adventure that this game provides.
The Legacy of the Wilds slot game is played on five reels and features four rows in which there are 40 fixed paylines available for bettors to form winning combinations on. As the paylines are fixed, players will need to place a minimum bet of $0.40 per spin in order to get things going, however those that like to wager with some of the bigger amounts can do so with up bets of up to $120 available.
Playtech have provided players with a number of features in which players can look to customise their gameplay experience, including the traditional ‘Autoplay’ function. Another handy feature is the ‘Turbo Mode’ as this will see the rate that the reels are spun be quicker.
Players who test out the Legacy of the Wilds Free Play version at the top of this game review will notice that there are a handful of icons on the paytable, each with different payout values. The amulets are the least rewarding, with the green and the blue ones each providing a win value of 75x for five of a kind. The orange one is worth the most in regards to the amulet icons, as it pays out at 125x for five that appear on a payline.
The symbols that provide the bigger rewards include the main characters of the game. The boy (purple) will provide players with rewards of between 5x and 150x depending on the sequence. The sorceress will pay out 150x for five on a payline, whereas the green ogre will double the wins, as does the evil warlock (300x for five of a kind).
The wizard, though, provides the biggest prizes as it can reward players with 750x for five.
Our review found that there are some great Legacy of the Wild bonus features available, with the Collapsing Reels feature the most obvious one to appear. This will see any winning combination disappear from the reels and provide players with the chance to see some more wins be recorded.
Players can also activate a free spins feature and this is achieved by filling up the Wave-O-Meter. N each consecutive winning spin, players will see the meter light up with one crystal ball. Five consecutive wins will see this feature triggered, although more wins will see it continue.
Five consecutive wins will award players with 8 free spins, whilst six consecutive wins will see 10 free spins provided. Any more than that will see up to 50 free spins handed out as a prize and these wins all include those that occur during the Collapsing Reels.
However, arguably the best bonus feature of this Legacy of the Wilds slot game is via the game’s Wilds. The magic Book of Wilds has the ability to substitute all other symbols in the game, whilst also providing rewards of up to 750x depending on the number used.
If players use a Wild on their first win, they will then see the Collapsing Reels provide them with a unique feature: a page Wild will appear and will continue to appear if more consecutive wins are obtained. Although this can accumulate and provide some big wins, they are also susceptible to disappearing from the reels because of the Collapsing Reels feature.
RTP (return to player)
The Legacy of the Wilds slot game has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.06%, which means players can expect to receive a number of prizes when taking to the slots for a period of time.
