Red Rake Gaming has strapped on its hiking boots and headed into the American countryside for its latest pokie creation; Wild Animals. As the name suggests, the game is squarely based around the theme of natural beauty, including some of the most iconic animals in the world. Players will come face to face with eagles, wolves, bears, horses, and more.
As far as graphics are concerned, the game does a decent job of representing classic American countryside. Enormous towering trees populate the background, complete with a lake, a clear sky, and enough ambience to impress even the most dedicated outdoors enthusiasts.
The animals themselves are also reasonably represented, though perhaps not as impressive as some other modern pokies. Even still, Wild Animals puts in effort where it matters most; creating a relaxing atmosphere.
Soaking In The Ambience
Though, it isn’t just about sightseeing in the Wild Animals pokie. There is, of, course, also the chance to walk away with some serious cash. The game utilises a classic 5 reel, 3 row grid, plus a standard 243 ways to win system.
The base gameplay is fairly standard, with a Free Spins system, as well as a maximum payout of 2,000x times the original wager. Where things take a turn for the interesting is in the Wild Fusion mini-game, which utilises an exceptionally interesting approach to payouts. It just goes to show, no matter what genre is used, Red Raking Gaming know how to insert a dash of creativity.
But before experiencing Wild Fusion, players will first have to match at least 3 Bonus symbols.
Forming A Wolf Pack
When a Wild Animals Wild Fusion round kicks off and Free Spins start to play out in the usual manner. However, it can immediately be devised that the mini game is unlike anything seen in other pokies. A grid is displayed, with a number of Wolf symbols placed randomly about. When a spin occurs, a chance exits for new symbols to land, and expand those that are already on the grid. When 2 wolves land beside one another, they fuse into a single, bigger symbol. Of course, the bigger the symbol the more valuable the payout, helping players to score massive bonus amounts.
Additionally, if a Gold Eagle is landed during a Wild Fusion game, 3 extra spins are instantly awarded.
With an interesting mini-game, and relaxing theme, Wild Animals is a great entry into Red Rake Gaming’s portfolio.
