There is no doubt NetEnt develops some of the very best slots as far as graphics and animations go. We also know that they can blow most other developers out of the water when they want to.
With Wilderland they go down a different route and give us a slot that’s all about elfs, fairies, magic, plant life and pixie dust. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but that sort of theme will immediately attract a certain type of player and Wilderland will never become a major success.
With 5 reels, 20 paylines, low volatility, a RTP of just 96.16% and a max win of just 240 x wager, it takes a certain type of player to get excited over Wilderland.
As the slot title makes no attempt to hide, wild symboles have a central role in Wilderland. All in all, the slot machine has five different wilds and although the max win is disappointing, there is no shortage of entertainment on an otherwise beautiful slot.
The first wild acts like any other standard wild and can replace all other symbols except for the scatter. That is, until you land two wilds in the “Activation Zone” spanning the entire middle line of the slot. Land two wilds on this line on the same spin and the wilds will change to Walking Wilds, walking from right to left over the next spins.
If you land more wilds while Walking Wilds is making their way over the reels, a multiplier of x 2 will be added to all wins, in addition to allowing wilds to expand and cover an entire reel. When Walking Wilds leave the reels, the slot can randomly trigger Magic Wild, which will fill reel five with stacked, walking wilds.
Wilderland also offers free spins if you land three or more scatter symbols on the same spin. You don’t win a set number of free spins, but the bonus round will keep going as long as you have a minimum of one Walking Wild on the reels. With a bit of luck, you can easily end up with dozens of free spins at a time.
At a time when other developers are focused on developing slots with an infinite number of paylines and wins of over 10,000 x wager, NetEnt seems content with launching rather simple slots for a completely different type of player.
Now, the theme on Wilderland is in no way new and it should be noted that NetEnt has had great success with slots like Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror, Wings of Riches and Butterfly Stax. That said, we don’t get the point of Wilderland.
The slot is unique if you judge it only by its graphics and animations. Once again, NetEnt proves they are the master of their field, setting the reels of Wilderland on a backdrop of a mysterious forest, illuminated by the clear night sky, and with a female ghost accompanying you with every spin.
As with other similar NetEnt slots, they know all too well that Wilderland will attract a rather narrow audience, but on the other hand, everyone who likes this theme will fall head over heels for Wilderland.
Wilderland can be found at most online casinos offering slots from NetEnt.

There is no shortage of animal themed slots online and ever since Microgaming launched the monster success Mega Moolah in 2006, developers have been trying to copy their success with countless animal slots.

Red Tiger Gaming was one of the first developers to get a license from Big Time Gaming, to use their Megaways technology. As a result, we have the pleasure of playing slots like Dragon’s Luck Megaways, Golden Leprechaun Megaways, Mystery Reels Megaways and, in our opinion, the best one, Dragon’s Fire Megaways. Dragon’s Fire was […]

Our spinning tin of joy has come a long way indeed; from chrome, gears, and levers, to lightning-fast buttons, reels, and pay lines – all masterfully blown into life thanks to some real state of the art video graphics. Many new video slots sport up to 5 reels. When it comes to how many pay lines a video slot can have these days, the numbers are as easy to predict as the winning numbers of a jackpot, they’re simply up in the air. Some games come with fixed pay lines, while other slots give you the possibility to bet on paylines. New paylines can suddenly pop up and offer something fun and exciting while playing, like free spins, for example, all video slots are a bit different, just like the number of pay lines and your gaming options. At Casino Hacks we think this is just great, because players are different, and we all favor different games and features. Just remember, before you spin away, go a little easy on the betting. If you’re new to the online casino and slot games, a free spin run is a smart way to start, just so you get the knack of the game and different features.
Options and new chances really are the name of the game here, so naturally, slot providers are constantly working on finding new smart ways to add surprising and fun bonus features. We see this all the time when new popular slots hit the casinos, packed with new options – all there to give you as a player another chance to win for example via an extra free spin or an entertaining boost option, like a multiplier feature.
Truly great slots become classics, like Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst – and reviews are always a smart way to get more out of the games. Reviews of branded slots are especially smart to check out since the RTP – the return to player figures – for branded slots sometimes can be as generous as the Night King in the epic saga. This is not always the case for all branded slots of course, and we’re not saying here that this is the case for GOT either, just pointing out some facts. When it comes to quality and entertainment levels, we’ve seen some astonishing development in the last couple of years where some truly amazing movie and TV concepts have been crafted into epic video slots – Game of Thrones, Jurassic World, Gladiator, Planet of the Apes, Age of Spartans, Jumanji, Beowulf, Mighty Kong, Jungle Books, Emoji Planet and Beauty and the Beast, to name a few.

Let’s take an example, it’s much easier that way. Let’s take a great slot, one we really love, let’s go for Jammin’ Jars. Now, this is a pearl of a slot because of the potential it’s got, to be precise, the theoretical potential here is 20 000X. Volatility, on the other hand, can be brutal, so make sure you manage your bankroll. If you manage your bankroll, keep your cool and play this slot the smart way, it might just show you the way to some serious cash. But, like with all slots, you can never be sure, of course.
– RTP: Return to player figures are at 96.51, not bad at all.
– Volatility: High. You might want to stay calm and wait for the bonus game when that comes along, you can get lucky.
– Overall impression: A gem of a game. Stay cool and stick to your game plan and this can be a winner.
