July's Biggest Wins at Wildz
A game developer offering some of the most exciting slots in the industry hogged the headlines at Wildz last month, as yet more players enjoyed five and six-figure buffers to their bankrolls.
Occupying all three podium places in July, Gamomat dished up scores worth €120,000, €110,450 and €105,500 across a trio of its most popular titles - outperforming some of the industry’s other high-profile providers.
We’re pleasantly surprised to see a decidedly vintage video slot take top honours to remind us of the games’ enduring appeal, and marking a refreshing change away from the myriad complex creations that dominate the slot landscape these days.
Win Blaster - A Blast from the Past
Complete with cherry symbols, along with lemons and lucky sevens, Win Blaster gives a nod to the old-school one-armed bandits that adorn gambling halls the world over. The retro offering earned July’s biggest winner €120,000 half way through the month, slightly ahead of the developer’s Egyptian classic, Ramses Book.
No game provider’s back catalogue is complete without a token Egyptian-themed offering, and Gamomat’s version is one of the better titles in this category. Standing out for its abundance of free spins on offer and Gamble feature, Ramses Book transports players to the plains of Egypt to unearth an ancient manuscript that holds the key to unlocking elusive treasure.
The usual symbols synonymous with the mysterious land can all be found across the reels. Load up the game to find black Baster cats, a falcon-headed God Horus, towering obelisks, and of course Pharaoh Ramses himself. Ramses Book also booked another top 10 showing in July, sending €34,020 to one Wildz player on the second day of the month.
Crystal Ball completes the top 3 spots, helping one beneficiary to a not-too-shabby €105,500 on July 8. Peer into the Crystal Ball to encounter free spins galore, a vivid colour scheme and infections soundtrack that combine to showcase the developer’s creative assets.
Developed in-house, Spinback™ is a second chance feature found only at Wildz that awards free spins to Temple Tumble whenever players encounter a streak of 5 consecutive misses playing Sweet Bonanza. Set in the depths of the Cambodian jungle, Relax Gaming’s tumbling reels speciality remains a cast iron favourite with slot fanatics, and reinforced its popularity last month after awarding the fourth highest win, amounting to €105,045 - narrowly missing out on bronze.
Elsewhere, slot favourites like Push Gaming’s Razor Shark (€46,040) and Legacy of Dead from Play’n GO (€43,260) made their usual appearances, while NetEnt’s 2020 Megaways upgrade to Piggy Riches paid out €76,372 on July 11.

Rampant Red Tiger
The multiplier wins came thick and fast during the month of July, but there was one standout game provider who really stole the show.
Responsible for some of the most popular slot titles in existence, Red Tiger Gaming registered no fewer than five separate showings in the month. Multiplier wins ranged from 15,128x to 43,123x, all delivered across five separate titles, and fittingly the Maltese-based developer also served up the month’s largest multiplier win as one Wildz player claimed a 43,123x score playing The Wild Hatter.
Themed around Alice in Wonderland, this 2020 release invites you into the eccentric world of the Hatter and his sidekick as you hunt out the game’s trio of jackpots - two of which are guaranteed to pay out at hourly and daily intervals.
Expect to find iconic symbols that evoke the magic of the children’s fairy tale, such as teapots, pocket watches, chess pieces and mushrooms in this weird and wonderful creation that is beautifully crafted.
In second we find a wildly fun offering from Yggdrasil that brought the return of those boisterous Vikings for another dose of high octane madness upon the high seas in Vikings Go Berzerk. The game’s quintet of Vikings each come with their own degree of profitability, offering up to 250x your wager for landing 5 of the same Viking across a payline in any one spin.
There’s an abundance of riches to be had in the base game, but the slot truly comes alive whenever a Viking’s own rage meter is filled - sending him into Berzerk mode and unleashing him into battle with seafaring Sirens. The title remains one of the most unique offerings in the slots world and is well worth any player’s time and effort.
A pair of Red Tiger video slots then take up the next two places in the standings, with Bounty Raid and Mega Rise producing wins worth 24,287x and 23,721x apiece. Released just two months ago, Bounty Raid is the latest slot to muscle in on the perennial Wild West theme, and sees the bounty hunter take a female form in what constitutes the game’s unexpected twist.
The unashamedly vintage Mega Rise, meanwhile, boasts a Rising Multiplier that comes into play whenever you make a winning combo. Add in a host of other modern features and some big win potential, and you have a classic slot with a twist perfect for anyone seeking an enhanced traditional slot experience.
There were a brace of appearances from the highly volatile Dead or Alive 2 elsewhere in the list, reaffirming its place as one of the best loved games thanks to the potential to win a huge 100,000x your stake in the free spins bonus round and well executed Wild West theme.
Holding the record for the biggest ever progressive jackpot prize ever paid, Mega Moolah makes its triumphant return to the Multiplier rankings, in at number #6 with a multiplier win worth 20,068x awarded on July 8. Special mentions also go to one more Red Tiger game Ra’s Legend, another slot based on Ancient Egyptian mythology (15,128x), along with the feature-rich retro slot upgrade, Cash Volt (17,767x) and Big Time Gaming’s devilish creation, Lil Devil (19,207x).
As usual, a bevvy of promotions ensured all Wildz players had the chance to grab a little extra value in the month.
It’s hard to believe Wildz’s first birthday recently passed. Only yesterday it seemed we opened the doors to scores of players wanting to try out the hottest casino of 2019. And to celebrate our first year in operation, we decided to put a little promotion together designed to reward the players who managed the highest multiplier wins each day from July 6 up until the end of the month. The prize? A nice little sweetener of 1,000 free spins for each daily winner.
The icing on the promotional cake, however, awaited the player who could score the single highest multiplier win across the course of the promotion.
An incredible 100 free spins every day throughout 2020 now belong to the player profiled above who netted a 43,123x multiplier win towards the back end of the campaign playing The Wild Hatter - equating to €15,000 in free spin value. Wildz caught up with our jubilant victor shortly following their win, and this is what they had to say:
“I have never received such a high profit. I played at Wildz because it was an interesting and good casino for me beforehand.
THANKS WILDZ FOR THIS GIANT. I still have no idea what I’m going to do with the profit. I was shopping first but no not for all the money, I just treated myself to something and paid some bills:)
THANKS THANKS THANKS WILDZ!”
Yggdrasil Jackpot Hunt
July also saw us team up with prominent game developer Yggdrasil to invite everyone on their unmissable Jackpot Hunt. Players simply had to spin the reels on popular Yggdrasil titles Ozwin’s Jackpot, Jackpot Raiders and Holmes and the Stolen Stones to stand a chance at €30,000 in prizes, while one lucky player emerged with the juicy top prize of €10,000 in the leaderboard promotion.
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways Launch
Everyone’s favourite intrepid slot explorer Gonzo was back in July as game provider Red Tiger Gaming brought us a brand new Megaways-inspired iteration of the smash hit Gonzo’s Quest. The most talked about title of 2020 benefits from the unique game mechanism developed by Big Time Gaming that promises a staggering 117,649 maximum ways to win.
To mark Gonzo’s return to action, a promotion was run during the last week of July paying out €400 in daily prizes across a host of hourly Race Tournaments. €200 awaited the winner of each tournament, with €100 awarded to the runner-up and third place claiming €40.
Gonzo’s Quest has remained a firm fan favourite since its initial release back in 2013, and the follow-up is sure to prove equally as popular as its predecessor.
Microgaming 9 Pots of Fire Raffle
9 Masks of Fire and 9 Pots of Gold are a pair of video slots from Microgaming that share similar mechanics and design, and the software house gave everyone further reason to try out these fun games last month thanks to a raffle style promotion ran for a week.
There was a huge €99,000 in prizes up for grabs simply for firing up the two video slots and giving the reels a spin. For every €9 wagered across either title, players received a ticket entry into the 9 Pots of Fire raffle, resulting in 117 separate prizes paid out on July 27.
July was another whirlwind month for us all. The many promotions ran in conjunction with leading game providers, complemented by our own bursting back catalogue, ensured players of all levels had the chance to pocket some extra cash in the month.
But the action never stops at Wildz. Check back here next month to see which games threw up the biggest wins in August.
