Play’n GO has released the newest installment in its immensely successful series of online slots, called Rich Wilde and the Wandering City. Like many excellent sequels, it builds upon the success of the prior installments in the series while also introducing new elements. More possibilities to win with every spin, a brand-new storyline, and, for the show’s protagonist, a somewhat windswept appearance and more than a few grey hairs are just a few of the new features.
The Irascible Thrill-Seeker
For a long time, Rich Wilde has been traveling the world in search of priceless relics and long-lost riches. In 2016, he made his debut in the Book of Dead slot, and over the course of the previous five years, he had also targeted Aztec Idols, Pearls of India, the Tome of Madness, the Amulet of Dead, and the Shield of Athena. Everything has been exciting, but now Rich Wilde has a beard and grey hair to show for it. Thankfully, he hasn’t decided to hang it up any time soon. His new adventure destination is the city that never stops moving: the Wandering City.
The slot machine has five reels and 243 paylines each spin. The reels are partially see-through, revealing a temple in the background between the two gigantic figures on either side. While it is obvious that this is a Rich Wilde slot, the setting is attractive and the animations are pleasant enough to make the game feel new and intriguing.
Stylized depictions of the playing card values 9 through A make up the lower-value symbols, while a dagger, a golden idol, a death mask, Rich Wilde himself, and a big diamond serve as the high-value wild scatter. When a winning combination is made, the symbols in Rich Wilde and the Wandering City come to life in a way that has made this slot our favorite in the series visually.
Optional Random Multiplier
Three x2 slabs may be found at the top of the middle three reels. Any of these features can be activated at random during play, increasing the value of any wins that result from that spin. On the off chance that two or all three multiplier slabs light up during the same spin, their combined values will be applied. With two active slabs, your chances of winning are multiplied by four, and with three, they are multiplied by six.
Gamble Feature Free Spins
This slot machine’s main selling point is its Free Spins bonus round. If you get three or more diamonds anywhere on the reels, you’ll activate this feature. You’ll get ten free spins, and before you even get started, one symbol will be picked at random to be an Expanding Symbol for the duration of the feature. During the Free Spins bonus round, the Expanding Symbol will always extend to fill its reel if doing so will increase the chance of a win.
You can win an additional ten free games if you hit three wild scatter symbols while in the Free Spins mode. You can do this numerous times, which is handy because the maximum payout is 10,000 times your initial wager.
Our Opinion on Rich Wilde and the Restless Metropolis
Fans of the series as well as those who have never played a Rich Wilde game before will enjoy the fresh adventure in Rich Wilde and the Wandering City. The 243 chances to win are a big change from the 10 pay lines in the previous games, but they help to keep this current adventure feeling fresh and new, along with the amazing graphics and audio. There’s a good chance that this slot will end up being a fan favorite, and we’re also fairly certain that there will be more adventures starring Rich Wilde in the months and years to come.
