Wishwood is a fantasy-themed slot machine game, released at a time when fantasy-themed slots are all the rage. Developed by IGT, this game can offer players a flurry of features (there are 3 free spin bonuses for starters) in what is in otherwise a fundamentally basic game. A standard 20 paylines are spread over the 5 reels of this slot, with players able to wager anything from 20p per spin up to £400 per spin. Whilst those wagers are fair, the non-progressive jackpot which is capped at 10,000 coins is positively extravagant and magical and keeps very much with the theme of the game.
Wild symbols are present in this game and can substitute for all other symbols save for bonus icons. It is also the best paying icon in the slot, so you’re going to want to keep an eye out for that.
At any point in the base game, players may randomly trigger one of three base game modifiers. The Wispy Wilds feature can see up to 4 wilds appear randomly on the reels. The Magic Multipliers feature offers multipliers worth between 2x and 10x on the reels, whilst the Bonus Climb feature (which is also triggered by landing 3 bonus icons on the first, third and fifth reels of the game).
Another randomly triggered feature includes the Tangled Symbols bonus, which locks winning symbols in place and offers a re-spin until no new wins appear.
Wishwood’s Bonus Climb feature sees players spin a wheel to learn how far Poa (the main character) can climb up a tree. The further it gets, the better the bonuses you get. Amongst the bonus features are a Top of the Tree free spins bonus with expanding symbols, an Enchanted Wilds free spin bonus which offers 5 games with sticky wilds and accumulators, and an Amber Wilds Bonus, which promises 7 spins with wilds which don’t feature in wilds locked on the reels until they do.
Any player who loves a wealth of features is going to be pleasantly surprised by what Wishwood has to offer them. IGT slots usually involve simplistic gameplay, but there’s none of that going on this game.
