ABOUT

Play N Go is an all too familiar name to slot lovers and Wild North is a much beloved title in the iGaming community. This game doesn't offer just one bonus round, it has seven of them! 

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Wild North features the theme of a snowy forest with symbols like wolves, bears, owls and reindeers, but it's the wild symbol in the form of a lynx that pays the highest (12.5x) for a-5-of-a-kind combination. Presented in a 5x4 format with 40 paylines, the slot has an RTP of 96.55%. For people who are tired of all the extremely high-volatility slots on the market, Wild North offers a great balance of medium variance and a 2500x max win.

Players can also enjoy a wide range of betting options, from $0.2 to $100 a spin. The base game of Wild North doesn't have any special features but the Northern Lights Bonus Game more than makes up for it with 7 different modes.

After you collect 3 scatter symbols, you get to spin the Bonus Feature Wheels containing one of the following:​

  • The Great Wilderness: players get 3 free spins and huge 4x4 mega symbols will replace reel 2-5.
  • Wild Lynx: 3 free spins with 1-2 reels get filled with wilds every spin.
  • Running Reindeer: only 1 free spin available but reel 2 and 4 get stacked with reindeer symbols. However, you can retrigger one bonus spin if reindeer symbols cover reel 2,3 and 4 or they form a 3x3 square. Only one re-spin is allowed.
  • Savage Bear: players get 1 free spin and a random multiplier up to 30x .
  • Wolf Pack: 1 free spin with 4 wolf symbols sticking to the reels before the spin. In this feature, wolves will act as wilds, and if any extra wolves land on the reel, one more free spin is activated.
  • Eyes of The Owl: 1 free spins with 2 big owl symbols (2x2 block) sticking on the reels. Plus, if the spin doesn't produce any win, you get to spin again.
  • Wild North Explorer: the reels become 20 hidden tiles and players click on tiles to receive the hidden prizes on it until they click on a final image (which are either X symbol, The Great Wilderness or Wild Lynx). Rewards range from cash prizes to other bonus features such as Wolf Pack, Savage Bear...

Roshtein's Take

Wild North is both a beautiful and well-made online slot game; the snowy vibe just provides such calmness after playing more loud and upbeat slots. At first, some of the bonus games were disappointing because they produced such low prizes. But after I played for a while, I realized that the frequency of the free spins features were much better than many other slots.

Although the base game of Wild North is still enjoyable, the slot is definitely at its peak when you get the Wild North Explorer. It's essentially a chance to play 5 bonus games in a row, plus cash prizes!
