How to play Simply WildClick here for a print friendly version
Simply Wild from Quasar Gaming is a full-scale digital replica of an authentic slot machine coming straight from the ‘80s – one of those where special coins are used both for bets and payouts. If you’re into retro atmosphere, mechanical clatter and all the typical land-based slot experience, do give it a couple of spins. The slot features two reel sets with completely different features: you have the base game and the top game. Make your way straight to the top and hit a cornucopia of coins! Return to player: 98%.
Unlike most online slots where the necessary adjustments involve setting your bet per line and the number of win lines in play, Simply Wild offers a slightly different betting strategy. First, you decide exactly how much you would like to transfer to the game balance, and then, using the standard “+” and “-” buttons, set the value of a single coin. All bets in the game are made with coins and are pre-defined, meaning that you simply choose one or the other option using the respective buttons. Thus, setting the value of a single coin is a kind of indirect way to control the real-money worth of your bets. The amount transferred to game balance gets divided by the chosen coin value, resulting in the number of available coins is displayed in the “Coins” meter. To start the game, hit “Start” or “Autoplay”.
As you’ve surely noticed, the slot has two reel sets, and the game starts on the one that is at the bottom. The default bet per spin here is 1 coin (the worth of which is totally up to you). Your goal is to land 2 or 3 identical symbols in a row on the single win line running across the reels. The value of each and every winning combination can be seen directly to the left of the reels. All coins won on the bottom reel set are stored in the “Win” meter.
The bottom reel set only has one single win line, and this simply had to be made up for: with the help of special buttons you can block any of the reels and spin only the remaining ones, thus increasing the odds of winning. The mystery symbol – a crown – will grant you anything from 2 to 50 coins if you land 2 of them anywhere in view; in turn, if 3 of them appear on the reels, you will get anything from 5 to 100 coins. And finally, every time you win something, you can double the prize by going for the standard double-or-nothing game of chance.
