The northern tundra is one of the more interesting places on Earth, as there is a lot of mystique surrounding the weather, wildlife, and life in general, not to mention the amazing Northern Lights. Internet betting software developer Play'n Go is hoping to play on this mystique by delivering the Wild North slot, which lets you experience some of the cold north for yourself.
Wild North is a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot that transports you above the Arctic Circle, bringing you into a snow filled wilderness that includes the following symbols: 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, owl, wolf, bear, reindeer, lynx, northern lights, and a group image of all of these critters together. Feature wise the game includes wild symbols (the lynx), scatter symbols (northern lights), and the Wild North Explorer feature, which gives players 20 images to uncover specific prizes. Other features include stacked symbols and random multipliers, which can help boos the number of wins that you take home.
Playing the Wild North slot I was struck by how many wild symbols constantly came up on the reels, and how little that meant to me actually winning anything. I went through several long droughts playing this game, and only saw the pick'em game come up once with the other free spins coming in a bit more frequently. This is a disappointment, as the game is otherwise presented beautifully, but unfortunately I found that Wild North became stale quite quickly. That being said, Wild North has an entertaining and fun looking theme that you will enjoy if you're a fan of animals or nature in general. If this sounds like you then you should definitely give this game a few spins and see if you have better luck than I did.
