Of course, if you fancy tangling with the undead, you’re gonna have to swap suburbia for dystopia in Wild Walkers.
Survive the Outbreak in Wild Walkers
A sombre and gloomy picture awaits in Wild Walkers. The visuals portray a dystopian future where Zombies have taken over. Burnt out cars, rain and doom and gloom fill the screen in a world where it’s every man and woman for themselves.
The audio starts off slow but as the reels start to spin a metal theme starts to play, indicative that things are about to kick off. Overall, it’s a good theme for the design, with fluid animations that show that a lot of time was put into the design.
Betting and Symbols
Betting options for this game range from a minimum of £0.25 to a maximum of £125 per spin, with lots of options in the middle of the two, giving plenty enough option for everyone.
In regards to symbols, the mad looking Scientist is the top one, paying out 20x your stake for a line of 5 in the base game. Next is the Man with a gun, the Nurse, the Woman with a chainsaw, the Gun and the Test Tubes.
Low paying symbols are A, K, Q & J. There’s also a Wild, which is always stacked, and is portrayed by a grotesque looking Zombie.
The Base Game and Features
Wild Walker uses more of a traditional mechanic, with 25 pay lines. Wins pay from left to right, and you’ll win as long as 3 or more matching symbols are present from left to right along any of these pay lines.
As mentioned previously, the game also has a stacked wild. The interesting thing about Wild Walker is that every spin in the Base Game will give you a stacked Wild. Every Spin, it can move to another random reel.
It’s certainly an interesting feature, and it means that you can win quite often, depending on which reel the stacked Zombie lands.
Progressive Free Spins
3 or more bonus symbols are needed to trigger the Free Spins Feature. 3 symbols will award 8 Free Spins starting from Level 1, and 4 will award 8 Free Spins starting from Level 2.
What do we mean by levels you ask? Well, during the Free Spins feature, up to 8 reels are available, and 3 of them are locked. Land Scatter symbols to unlock the reel, 3 will be needed in total to unlock it.
Once unlocked, 2 extra spins are awarded, along with another expanded Wild symbol.
- Level 1 – 5 reels with one roaming Expanded Wild
- Level 2 – 6 Reels with one expanded Wild symbol that is locked on Reel 1, as well as one expanded Roaming Wild
- Level 3 – 7 Reels with 2 Expanded Wilds locked on Reels 1 & 2, as well as one expanded Roaming Wild.
- Level 4 – The maximum 8 reels are unlocked, 3 Expanded Wilds are locked on reels 1, 2 & 3, as well as one expanded Roaming Wild.
After all Reels have been unlocked, collecting 3 more bonus symbols will award 2 more spins with no limits to how many times it can re-trigger.
Obviously, you’ll want that level 3 and 4 for things to really kick off. A locked Expanding Wild on reels 1 & 2 on level 3 or 1, 2 & 3 on level 4 will guarantee you a win every spin. These modes are where the game really shows its potential.
Pragmatic Play have made another compelling New Slot, with potential to match. They’ve done a really great job in the design, both in visuals and audio, leaving no doubt that Pragmatic Play don’t skimp out on the design.
The gameplay is good, but the Base Game can get a little boring while you’re waiting for the Bonus, with its only saving grace being the fact that you get a Wild every spin no matter what.
This helps keeps things going for a while, and can be quite beneficial to the balance, and might explain its impressive 96.55% RTP. While the Wild reel is a beneficial factor in the game, you’ve got to take the bad with the good.
It does also in essence, act as a blocker meaning you only have 4 out of 5 reels to land 3 scatter symbols on.
Where the game really shines is the bonus. It’s an exciting feature if you can hit the ground running, and you’ll want to see lots of scatter symbols land in order to unlock those extra reels to obtain those additional spins and wilds.
