People love talking about weather, but this Wombat suddenly felt a touch of slot turbulence might be in order with the Wild Weather slot! This game comes rearing out of the stable of Tom Horn Gaming offering me big entertainment for bad weather, and Mega Expanding Wilds, and that’s a winner let’s face it.
Tom Horn are the people behind the Frozen Queen slot in case you didn’t know. They make a good lookin’ slot, do Tom Horn!
Would this game be more than just a storm in a teacup? I jumped out my hammock and into the reels to find out if I’d need to broadcast a weather warning.
Look and Feel
I don’t know about you, but I always fancied a chance to don some glasses, a suit, and to stand in front of the TV weather chart. Now, my fantasy was within my grasp with this new weather report inspired slot game.
Don’t expect mega drama on the weather front, this game has a pretty straight forward look that’s more in the realms of a weather chart than dancing in your birthday suit in the rain (that’s another story). If you want carefully drawn graphics and rich story lines then head to something like the Dragon Shard slot which is a fantasy game. Having said that, there are coins too be won from some of the rough and wombat un-friendly conditions – you’ll be wishing for storms on the reels. It’s a pretty slick looking slot alright.
Behind the reels is a big expanse of sky and across this different weather conditions will race. This isn’t a game to blast you away with its graphic offering, its more no frills.
There’s some catchy chilled music in the background to keep you slot play on the up beat side.
Wild Weather Slot Game Play
You’ll be wanting to whip up a storm a go for mega wins on the 3 rows, 5 reels and 18 paylines. That’s a pretty healthy number that compares well to other payline games like the Chicken Fox slot.
As a game that was launched post smartphone revolution, this slot is a peach to play on all your devices.
Refreshingly, this game is rooting for you with its pays-both-ways mechanic. Wins aren’t just paid out on the standard left to right combos, there’s right to left too.
All your symbols are the icons from a weather map- easy to play with and basic.
The big hitting symbols with the highest values are storm clouds, followed by snow storms, a rain shower, sun and cloud combo, and last and in this case least just plain clouds.
The lower value icons in this climatic treat are a set of temperatures: the usual playing card symbols have been retired. Well done Tom Horn Gaming.
And this weather game offers you not one, but two Wilds to keep you on your toes.
The standard Wild appears as a Tornado: when this puppy lands, it’ll expand vertically to cover a whole reel.
And the weather condition you need to worship is the sun icon Mega Wild. This special sunny icon appears only in the Free Spins feature.
When it lands it’ll have you reaching for your sun lotion as it’s BIG. This would be a good time too slip your shades on, as when the Sun Wild arrives it forces its way onto the reels in a 2 x 2 format in any direction. This supersized dose of vitamin D will help you to make more winning combos. Kerching!
To unlock the Free Spins game, you need to land 3, 4 or 5 Scatters and you’ll be able to get cracking with 5, 10 or 15 Free Spins respectively. This is the round where you’ll be slapping on the Factor 50 in the hope that you’ll land the mega expanding sun Wild and make some supersized wins.
The Wild Weather slot will have you looking for a storm on the horizon but with a bit of luck there could be sunny skies ahead. With its slick look, the pays-both-ways mechanic, the vertical expanding Wild, and the Mega Expanding Free Spins Wild, this game can bring more than just a tan in this straight forward pleaser.
