Wild Gambler Slot Machine
Wild Gambler is the perfect name for this 5 reel and 20 payline online slot game which is set on an African safari. The theme is incorporated in even the smallest aspects of the game, with even the playing card symbols being adorned in animal print.
The reels are on a piece of tarp, spread out on a bamboo frame and the animals you can expect to see on the reels include Lions, Leopards, Flamingos and Rhinos. In the background is a grassland that looks very much like the Savannah which stretches out into the horizon.

Bonus Rounds and Payouts
- Lock and Spin Wilds Bonus
Wild Gambler's most innovative bonus feature is by far the Lock and Spin Wilds. Here, you will be able to choose Wilds, the Lion symbol, to become locked in on your next spin. The Lion symbol becomes caged to represent the Locked feature. Your bet increases when using this feature but it is often more than worth it as the winning potential for locking Wilds is high. A pop-up window appears to inform you that your bet is going up and you can choose whether to cancel or continue. There are options in the settings that allow you to automatically lock in Wilds each time they appear
- Meerkat Free Spins Bonus
Landing 5 Meerkat Scatter symbols on the reels will activate the Free Spins Round. 8 Free Spins are automatically awarded to you. Extra Wilds are added to the reels and during the Free Spins you can make use of the Lock and Spin for feature for free (or without your bet increasing). The symbols used to activate the free spins are also locked into place during the round. All the winnings from the free spin round are multiplied by the bet level at which the free spins were activated.
The Wild Lion symbol is also the game's most valuable symbol and pays a hefty 1000x your bet for spinning in 5 of a kind on an active pay-line. Make sure you are betting the maximum amount in order to qualify for the Jackpot. The second highest paying symbol is the Rhino and comes in a close second at 800x your bet for in a row.
Additional Game Features
The AutoPlay in Wild Gambler works in the same way as in other Playtech slots. It allows you to spin the reels automatically for a maximum of 50 spins (you can adjust it so the amount is lower) on your desired bet level. This feature is not available if you want to use the Lock and Spin Wild feature too.

The Wild is the icon of the Lion, which substitutes for all the standard symbols.
The Scatter in Wild Gambler is the Meerkat symbol, which activates the free spins round.
Wild Gambler is an excellent game by Playtech. The sketchy cartoon graphics are very appealing and each animal character seems to have their own personality. The Lock and Spin feature is highly innovated and is yet to be mimicked by competitor software developers, it is not very often that we come across a slot with truly unique features.
The authentic animals roars and sounds add to the theme and overall feel of the game.
