Last year saw a handful of household names dominate the Big Win standings at Wildz.
All-time classics like Razor Shark, Jammin' Jars and Lil Devil regularly coughed up lucrative five and six-figure scores to showcase their big win potential time and time again and leave all other games in their shadow.
Will we see a similar story emerge in 2022, or will newer releases muscle in on their patch?

5 Lions Roars to Top Spot
The first month of 2022 brings us a debut at no.1.
With a distinctly Asian flavour, Pragmatic Play’s 5 Lions Megaways ($140,526) is a beautifully designed slot that sees players encounter wild lions across a 6-reel layout.
Classic Asian emblems feature prominently, with the Ying and Yang symbol showing up on occasion to award multipliers ranging from 3x to 100x.
Other features include the acclaimed MegaWays mechanic, which provides enhanced ways to win at 200,704, along with Cascading Reels plus your choice of seven Free Spins rounds. Opt for a larger number of spins paired with lower wild multiplier values, or fewer spins with more lucrative wilds.
Talented studio Nolimit City begin 2022 right where they left off, once again making their presence felt on our Big Win report.
This time the game in the spotlight is their creepy creation inviting players inside an apparent makeshift torture chamber.
Mental ($121,397) lives up to its name in more ways than one. The 2021 release mixes a wealth of explosive features with a polarising theme and a max payout equal to 66,666x the wager. Enter if you dare.
The Jammin' Jars Disco Re-opens
The Jammin' Jars nightclub reopened its doors in style in January.
Sending $51,831 the way of one Canadian player, Jammin' Jars is arguably the most well-known disco slot ever crafted.
Push Gaming’s iconic game is arranged over a neon-drenched 8x8 grid matrix, where dancing jam jars hit the dancefloor teasing wins worth up to 20,000x.
Among others, the remaining monetary places are taken by Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild from NetEnt, which beckons players inside a verdant jungle ($51,157), a pair of showings by Nolimit City’s pulsating sequel, Tombstone R.I.P. ($19,309, $16,701), and Pragmatic Play’s heavenly offering, Gates of Olympus ($25,000).

Book of 99
Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah
Uncover the Fabled City of Gold
The most famous conquistador in all of slot land hogged the headlines in the Multiplier stakes for January.
Red Tiger Gaming’s MegaWays revamp of a beloved cult classic paid out a prize worth 34,986x to one player in Norway - a hare’s breath ahead of Book of 99 from Relax Gaming.
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways brings back all the fun of the jungle as the star man resumes his efforts to unearth the lost city of Eldorado with the help of some new bonus features. Being powered by MegaWays means ways to win have jumped to 117,649, while the maximum payout has also swelled, now clocking in at 21,000x.
Avalanche Multipliers, Earthquakes and Unbreakable Wilds are other new additions rounding off the hugely popular sequel.
99 Reasons to Play Book of 99
Taking the runner-up berth courtesy of a 34,114x win on the first day of 2022, the clue behind Book of 99’s main attraction lies in its title.
The slot comes with a head-turningly high RTP value of 99% - considerably higher than the industry average that tends to hover around 96%.
Book of 99’s elevated RTP score is far from being its only highlight, though.
Push Gaming’s one-of-a-kind contribution to the ‘Book’ genre is executed in characteristically polished fashion. Get ready to battle against the Gods and collect Books - yep, all 99 of them - to trigger the classic bonus round where Expanding Symbols fulfil their regular duty.
Discover a Lost Paradise
Isle of Man-headquartered Microgaming are an industry powerhouse who nowadays choose to channel their efforts into forging partnerships with assorted iGaming studios to help get their games to market.
One such partner is Neon Valley Studios, the team behind the fourth place entry on our Multiplier table (21,788x).
This particular aquatic adventure sees players head down to the depths attempting to locate the lost Utopian city of Atlantis and reclaim its forgotten treasures.
The undoubted highlight of the game is its quartet of tantalising progressive jackpots where millionaires can be made in the blink of an eye - like the lucky Belgian who banked a world-record $19.4M in April last year.
Witness Epic Bison Clashes
Propping up the January table with the last three entries is an enthralling new release from Push Gaming (16,724x, 14,166x, 13,888x) centred around roaming wild beasts of the North American wilderness.
Abundant Free Spins are in the offing in Bison Battle. The Ice Park round plays out à la Money Train 2 complete with various modifiers, while its counterpart Green Valley is the more traditional version featuring sticky wilds.
An epic bison clash ensues should a multiplier-bearing bison land at the same time as one carrying a prize. Get ready to scoop up a tasty instant reward as two fearsome bison go tête-à-tête across the reels.
January well and truly kicked off the new year with a bang. Let’s hope for more epic scores at the Wildz slot reels over the following 11 months!
