Wild Orient Pokie Review
Pokie aficionados will know to expect only the best of quality from Microgaming, and Wild Orient certainly does not disappoint. The jungles of Asia are our destination, with beautifully illustrated animal symbols against a backdrop of verdant green foliage.
The game features a selection of animals you could only expect to see on the most fortunate of Asian safaris: the elephant, monkey, tiger, stork, and of course the panda all feature.
About The game
Coins Range:0.01 To 1.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:10/X3
Wild Symbol: the Wild Orient animated symbol will act as a substitute for any of the game’s regular symbols, opening up new winning pay lines. The Wild will not be able to replace the Scatter symbol.
Scatter Symbol: the rogue elephant symbol is the Scatter here, with three or more appearing on the reels signifying the start of your bonus free spins.
Fifteen free spins is the generous reward for three or more Scatters, and during these free spins all wins are multiplied by three to maximize your winning potential.
If you come across another 3+ Scatter Symbols in the course of the free spins, then you can re-trigger further free spins to a maximum total of 30.
Reel Re-spin: one feature which allows Wild Orient to stand out from the crowd is its Reel Re-spin option. After you spin you will be offered the opportunity to re-spin one of the reels in the hope that you can make a winning pay line combination as a result.
So if you have high value symbols showing on four reels out of five you can try your luck by spinning that fifth reel in the hope of getting a big pay-out.
Having the extra control over your destiny is great, but of course you will have to pay extra for your reel re-spin, and the greater the likelihood of a big pay out, the larger the cost of a re-spin to the player.
One further point to note is that sometimes the cost of the re-spin may put you over the max bet limit, and thus may not be possible in some circumstances.
The photo-realistic illustrations featured on this pokie are certainly appealing, although it would be remiss not to mention that both the Panda and Tiger images are direct copies of the symbols from Microgaming’s Untamed Bengal Tiger and Untamed Giant Panda pokies.
With this minor quibble apart the aesthetics of the game are of the highest quality, and the re-spin feature is a welcome addition as it allows the player to exert some measure of control over the outcome of the game.
