Big Wins and Record Breakers at Wildz in October!
October 2020 came and went with its annual Halloween festivities - albeit toned down versions this year due to the current global climate. That wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of the global population, who still found various ways to celebrate in the most ghoulish fashion, while plenty of Wildz players found the time to book sessions at the slot reels.
For two players in particular, the celebrations didn’t end there. October went down in history delivering not one but two separate records since we flung our doors open last year. Read on to find out which games spun their way into the history books last month..
Razor-sharp Riches at No. 1
The flagship title in premier content provider Push Gaming’s repertoire, Razor Shark consistently makes it onto ‘most played’ charts and is a regular fixture on our own Big Wins features, too.
Boasting stunning production quality and unique gameplay bolstered by some infectious audio, it’s little wonder scores have plunged the shark-infested waters of the developer’s smash hit since the day it dropped, hoping to snag features that can lead to payouts reaching 50,000x your stake.
We regularly see sizeable five-figure and occasional six-figure scores served up by the fan favourite at Wildz. It’s not often we see payouts north of half a million Euros, though, but that’s exactly what the game delivered to one lucky player last month.
A bet of €20 was enough to land the punter their €572,114 windfall on October 27 - one of the largest prizes seen at Wildz in recent times, putting it over €400,000 clear of second place on our standings.
Biggest Non-jackpot Win Ever!
Now, typically wins of this magnitude only tend to crop up when players trigger an elusive jackpot prize. We dug a little deeper and trawled through the archives here at Wildz - and can safely say the €572,114 win is officially the largest non-jackpot prize we have ever awarded! Congrats to our lucky player for earning a deserved spot in Wildz folklore and for their life-changing fortune.
€0,20 Wager Brings Divine Fortune
Runner-up honours went to classy affair Divine Fortune. Its creator, NetEnt, is renowned for its knack of producing top notch progressive jackpot games, and Divine Fortune can be considered one of the more impressive games occupying the category.
Top payouts in these slots often reach sky high amounts since they pool a small percentage of each player’s wager across the network of hosting websites - and it can sometimes take even the most meagre wager to trigger a life-changing payday. This is exactly what one Wildz player found to their favour on October 6, after a bet of just €0,20 sent a supersized jackpot worth a huge €137,232 their way.
It goes to show that you needn’t be a high roller to stand a chance of landing a major score in progressive Jackpot games - underlining their broad appeal.
Steeped in Greek mythology, try the slot for yourself to enjoy polished visuals and excellent gameplay - plus the promise of some divine rewards in the offing.
In at third was another industry classic that constantly earns a spot on our monthly rankings - and it was another top performer from Push Gaming, where the disco is in full swing.
Featuring the Cluster Pays mechanism and some eye-catching visuals, Jammin' Jars is an 8x8 Cascading grid slot that beckons players to the dancefloor to groove with its funky beat and loveable jam jars.
The jars are undoubtedly the stars of the show, spelling huge riches when jiving together carrying increasing multipliers. The lucrative feature proved particularly profitable for two Wildz players last month, to the tune of €130,915 and €80,613, respectively.
Egyptian Treasures Abound
Further down the list, that well-trodden slot land of Ancient Egypt was once again well represented on our Big Win rankings, with Gamomat’s popular release Ramses Book (€102,850), Book of Cleopatra from Stakelogic (€50,070) and Play’n GO’s blockbuster Book of Dead (€41,200) all making their presence felt in October.

Historic 686,159x Win Multiplier
You read that right. Taking gold in our Multiplier stakes for the month of October 2020 with a win worth a truly colossal 686,159x was also second on our Big Win table.
For context, the three previous months at Wildz brought top wins worth 43,123x, 64,703x and 114,325x, respectively, which all pale into significance against October’s huge win.
A further check of the Wildz database confirmed what we predicted: the Multiplier Win served up by Divine Fortune is considerably the biggest we’ve ever seen.
Six-figure multiplier wins rarely show up, but we’re delighted one managed to secure its place in Wildz history last month.
A lesser known game provider recorded a second place showing on our monthly rankings, with their 2020 upgrade on an industry evergreen bursting with features.
The utterly bonkers Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah sees the madcap Mad Hatter hosting his whacky tea party, drawing evident inspiration from Alice in Wonderland. As the name suggests, the slot, developed exclusively for Microgaming, incorporates the developer’s world famous quartet of progressive jackpots that regularly stretch into the millions, and threw up a 81,279x win to one player last month.
Halloween graced us on the final day of the month, and what better way to indulge in some creepy fun than by firing up a suitably spooky slot - like Lucky Halloween?
Developed by leading provider Red Tiger Gaming, the slot evokes the true Halloween spirit by incorporating iconic symbols like pumpkins, bats and cats, while its Full Moon Bonus rewards with instant cash prizes.
A host of other features like Wilds, Mega Wilds and Special Reels, meanwhile, helped one player to a 31,337x win on the day itself - making this a highly entertaining and potentially lucrative slot to be enjoyed at any time of the year.
Speaking of the Mad Hatter, he was everywhere in October. Everyone’s favourite eccentric earned one other Wildz player a 16,722x win during the month playing an equally zany slot, The Wild Hatter.
Players venturing down the rabbit hole in Red Tiger’s other Wonderland-themed offering will find increasing Respin Multipliers galore waiting inside this fun-filled game.
Elsewhere, there were token appearances from Jammin' Jars and the high octane Lil Devil (11,050x), along with some people’s ‘slot of 2020’, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways (12,259x).
The most famous conquistador in all of iGaming land was given the famed MegaWays treatment earlier this year by Red Tiger, in his endless search for Eldorado. The developer’s sequel brings back the magic of NetEnt’s original while turning up winning ways to the max 117,64s9 setting. Cascading reels are also in play second time round, bumping up win potential further as winning combos get cleared to make way for new symbols.
Aside from all the record-breaking action at the reels, October again saw us join forces with some of our esteemed game partners to lay on various value-packed campaigns.
Quickspin €100,000 Festival
A huge €100,000 in cash prizes was on the line in October courtesy of leading software suite Quickspin.
Comprising the promotion were daily multiplier tournaments awarding €5,000 at a time up until October 8th, with a further €30,000 up for grabs over two separate weekends.
Multiplier tournaments give players of all stakes the chance to get involved and win some free cash as, unlike some other promotions, your wager amount has no bearing on your potential prize. Land one of the top 5 daily multipliers and players stood a chance at a €2,500 top prize, with €200 awarded for the fifth highest win daily.
With both weekend tournaments offering a €15,000 grand prize, players were quick to hit the reels across a number of eligible Quickspin slots such as Big Bad Wolf, Ghost Glyph and Sakura Fortune during the campaign - some of the most popular in the developer’s fast-growing library.
200 Free Spins
Wildz was on hand to give everyone a little helping hand in October with another tempting free spins offer. Simply make a real money deposit from October 1-10 and we pledged to furnish your account with up to 200 spins to use on an instant classic in the John Hunter series: John Hunter and Tomb of the Scarab Queen.
This slot, incidentally, features as part of our industry-first bonus feature, Spinback. Go five winless rounds playing John Hunter and Tomb of the Scarab Queen, and you’ll bag a free second-chance spin to use on the egyptian-themed John Hunter and the Book of Tut.
We’re not sure we’ll be seeing wins on par with October’s record-setters any time soon. But when they come up, you’ll be the first to know about them all right here.
