NetEnt has cooked up a cracker of a concept with this game Wombat fans. The Wild Turkey slot will give you a real tummy-tickling : it’s a game that is based on a group of turkeys hidden in the remote mountains. And, what’s more, they’re busy worshipping a bunch of stone Wild icons! Well, blow me- I’ve seen it all. They also do more traditional games like the Grand Spinn slot which is a fruity. It’s safe to say that Wild Turkey is not one of those!
If you can keep a straight face, you will soon realise that this game is more than just laughs. The Wild Turkey slot has 800,000 coins to be won. Now we’re talking! Those are the kind of numbers make me dizzy or hungry!
Look and Feel
First of all, you will see that on each side of the reels are twisted trees and vines. In the background are grass-roofed huts, with beak-shaped doors: these are where the maverick poultry hang out on a daily basis, bless ’em.
Overall there’s a slightly retro look to the animation and there’s definitely a big dollop of silliness too. We’re in the same kind of ball park here as the Stones and Bones slot machine and other cartoony games.
So what have these birds got in store for us, apart from the gentle sounds of drumming? I hope they are not thinking about a wombat-shaped sacrifice!
This feathery frolic flaps in over 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 pay-lines just like the Richie in Vegas slot and quite a few other games we could mention.
On the symbols front, 5 jazzed up turkeys in Inca inspired get-up are the main icons. The top scorer is a red-clad bird with a staff. If 5 of these guys land on an active pay-line, it’s time to scream and shout as you are up for a 200 x your wager cash prize.
A bird with a bone through its nose is the second most valuable icon. Lure 5 of these fellas to the reels and bag a 3,000 coin prize. Next up is a green-clad turkey with a mask. Finally, there’s is blue lady turkey showing her outfit off and a spear-bearing bird. Despite their odd outfits, these birds are worth more than just feathers.
The stone Ace through 10 of the card deck gives us the lower value symbols.
Running through the extras, the statue of a stylised Inca-style turkey is the game’s Wild. This symbol is confined to the base game and subs for all other icons. But, there is a very similar looking Stacked Wilds icon that arrives in the Free Spins game. This icon rules them all.
Try and get those winning-wings flapping with a trio or more of the Wild turkeys and you will unlock the free spins game. 3, 4, or 5 Wilds will launch 15, 30 or 60 free games respectively. And let’s face it, who can say no to 60 free spins?
Now that you’ve entered the feature, you will find yourself in a dusky scene with a bunch of birds worshipping by firelight. All the base game Wilds will be replaced by Stacked Wilds which sub for all other symbols. If the slot gods are blessing you, you might land Stacked Wilds over a whole reel. When this happens you are given a pair of extra free spins – and the additional spins can keep coming for as long as you can land those Stacked Wilds.
There are wins of 4,000 times your wager available on each spin if you land a reel-load of the highest value turkey or that worship-worthy Wild. This is a medium variance game which means that there should be a satisfying amount of wins to be made. Kick back and enjoy this exotic lesson into what happens when turkeys are left to their own devices!
Score: 4 out of 5
The Wild Turkey Slot is clucking good fun.
