Prepare for the ride of your life in the high-octane 5-reel and 25 fixed paylines slot The Wild Chase from Quickspin. Much like a Hollywood movie, this game is stacked with eye candy and bling to make your eyes pop out from their sockets. Along the way, you can also win some cash prizes of up to 200 coins per payline!
Rev those engines!
Let us start with the obvious. When you first play this game, you can’t help but notice the four higher paying character symbols with their perfect looks and sexy confident facial expressions. They are clearly drawn to look like they should be modelling underwear for Calvin Klein. Needless to say, the graphics are one of the strong points of this game. The lower and mid tier symbols contains all the possessions you’ve come to expect that would represent wealth and power including a wad of cash, diamond rings, expensive watches, car keys and a pouch with diamonds. The spinning reel sounds like the revving of an engine with exciting music that combine for one adrenaline pumping experience. The seaside background becomes a blur during the respin feature as the chase is on by land and sea!
The chase is on
During a base spin winning combinations will trigger the respin feature where only the winning symbols lock into place for another respin. If after the respin, additional symbols add to an existing payline or create a new winning payline then they lock on the spaces as well and this loops until no new winning paylines are created and no new symbols are added to an existing winning payline. It is only when the respin feature has concluded that the total win is calculated. Additionally, to drive your wins even further you have the multiplier wild, which substitutes for any symbol other than the bonus scatter and acts as a progressive multiplier when forming part of a winning combination. Depending on how many wilds form part of a winning payline, your multiplier can range from 2x to 5x. With the appearance of 3 or more bonus scatter symbols you are awarded 10 free spins. When triggered, you are guaranteed a multiplier wild symbol though it will still need to be part of a winning payline to avail yourself of it.
The bets in The Wild Chase range from €0.25 or €0.01 per payline to €100 or €4 per payline. The variance for this slot is low meaning you will most probably win regularly though the wins will be closer to your bets. Having said that it also means you can likely play longer which gives a shot at larger prizes. I liked the graphics and sound effects but found the maximum prizes per payline to be underwhelming though one could argue that with 25 paylines, multiplier and respin features you could get away with some substantial prizes!
