This old-school slot machine from Novomatic is one of the most popular games that Novomatic have ever made. First designed for use in land-based casinos as a physical, standing slot machine, Simply Wild has now been adapted for desktop and mobile use, too! Novomatic have designed the online and mobile slot game to look just like a standing slot machine. When you load up the game, you’ll feel like you’re playing in a real games arcade, as you’ll see a vintage carpet on the floor of a dimly-lit room, with other Novomatic slot machines standing in the background, such as: Random Runner and Club 2000. You can choose to play the game like this if you want a more authentic-style playing experience, or you can zoom in so that you can see the reels of the game more clearly. Simply Wild Mobile is a slot game that has a base game and a top game, so you’ll have double the fun! There are holding reels, Scatter symbols and mystery wins so this game will keep you on your toes! The reason why Novomatic players go crazy wild for this slot game is the fact that it has an RTP of 98%! That makes this most definitely one of the highest-paying slot games that Novomatic, or anyone for that matter, has ever made!
The base game in Simply Wild is probably where you’ll be spending most of your time. This base game is very simple: there are three reels, each with three positions on them, and one payline which runs across the centre positions of the three reels. On the base game, you’ll see a myriad of classic slot symbols including different fruits red sevens and golden bells and crowns, and blue and white stars. The fruits are: cherries, oranges, lemons, pears, plums, strawberries, grapes and watermelons. All symbols pay out with two or three matches across the payline, on consecutive reels and going from left to right. The stars pay out the most. The golden crown symbol is special as it can pay from two or more matches across many different paylines, which you can see next to the reels. The crowns give out mystery wins and these can be up to 100 coins! You can see how many coins the other symbols pay out by looking at the paytable next to the reels. In the base game, you can hold one or more reels and spin again with the hold feature, to hold reel 1 or reel 2 will cost one coin and to hold reel 3 will cost two coins. You can adjust the coin value in the settings and the bet for the base game costs one coin. The wins from the base game can be gambled for a double-or-nothing chance by you choosing heads or tails, and then can either be added to your balance or can be added to the super meter. Once the super meter reaches 200 coins, you can move onto the top game!
The top game pays out more than the bottom game but it also takes more coins. The top game has four reels with the following symbols on: oranges, pears, plums, bells, strawberries, grapes, watermelons, red sevens and blue & white stars. The top game also has one more reel and four or nine more paylines than the base game, so four reels and ten paylines in total. What’s even better about these paylines is that they pay both ways! That means that three consecutive matches of any of the symbols, either starting from the far-left or starting from the far-right, will pay out! The wins are epically big in this top game and the bets are adjustable: 5 coins for 5 paylines, 10 coins for 5 paylines & added Wilds, 10 coins for 10 paylines or 20 coins for 10 paylines & added Wilds! The Wild symbols are normal symbols with stars on them and these can substitute for any of the others to give you more wins. You can keep playing this top game until you run out of money or quit while you’re ahead and transfer your coins back to your balance and resume the bottom game once more.
