Forget the northern lights, this Wild North slot machine is far more enticing thanks to a multitude of bonus game features.

Wild North is one of the most beautiful slots we have ever seen. Set in the snowy mountains probably not far from home, with the Northern Lights on full show, Wild North is truly a sight to behold.

Wild North looks more than decent. It is evident that the designers have put a lot of effort into ensuring that the animals are well-drawn, and the background music and sound effects really capture that wilderness theme.

This is one of the best looking slots from Play’n GO. This is really saying something because they do produce some amazing looking machines usually – just look at the Imperial Opera game or Planet Fortune slot.

The actual game doesn’t feel all that Play’n GO, though. Well, at least not initially. It has 40 pay lines and a 5×4 reel set up, which at the time that Wild North was released, was a bit unique for them.

Maybe not so much now, but back then…sure.

So many Wild North slot game features

We need to dedicate a lot of space to the features in Wild North slot because there are just so many of them. Well, not a ton, but one of the features has a plethora of variants to it, which means that it requires a lot of description.

It is this wealth of features which really highlights that it is a Play’n GO game. And the Wild North free spins feature is one of the more interesting takes we have ever seen.

To trigger it, you will need to get three scatters on the reels. You will then be taken to a wheel which spins.

The animal selected on the wheel will influence the feature you get and keeps this game fresh for each free spin round.

What are all the bonus game features?

There are a total of 7 random features you can win when you get those scatters anywhere on these 5 reels.

  • Owl: Just a single free spin here. There will be two 2×2 owl symbols on the reels. The reels will keep spinning until you get a win.
  • Wolf: One free spin. You get a single 2×2 wolf symbol on the reels. Each time a wolf symbol appears, you get one more free spin. All the wolves will be sticky and wild.
  • Reindeer: One free spin. The reindeer is a stacked symbol on reels 2 to 4. Every time the reindeer appears fully stacked on a reel, you get one more additional spin. This also occurs if you get the reindeer in a 3×3 block. They will always be sticky when they appear.
  • Lynx: Three free spins. Up to two of the reels will be a fully wild lynx. You can win big with this feature, but you may also win nothing.
  • Bear: Single free spin. You will get a random multiplier between 5x and 30x on the win. This is where you win the biggest prize in the game, but the chances you win nothing are high.
  • Great Wilderness: Three free spins. A 4×4 symbol will appear on the final 4 reels. If you get a matching symbol on the 1st reel, you get some huge wins.
  • Wild North Explorer: This doesn’t involve free spins at all. It is a pick and chooses game. You can win free spins, cash prizes etc. but mostly cash prizes.

The Lynx is our favourite, but of course, as it’s totally random, you just got to hope that you can tame one of them.

Is Wild North slot worth checking out?

Absolutely! The free spins feature alone makes this game more than worth it, mostly due to how unique it is – maybe not as unique as the Sweet Alchemy slot, but you can win more here.

You are not always going to score wins when the feature is triggered, but it always delivers a decent amount of excitement.

Couple this with the fact that the game just plain looks good, and you have something you will return to again and again.

That said if you want something similar after taking a few spins up north, how about heading south for a brilliant Royal Masquerade.
