Record-breaking Empire Fortune
Over the hills and far away at number 1, the Empire Fortune win is by far the largest prize we’ve ever seen awarded at Wildz, and some $3.7million ahead of second place on our May money list. All the more impressive, the jackpot was won from just a $20 spin. We reported on the momentous win shortly after, which you can read here.
Packed with a host of features, Empire Fortune is a type of network jackpot video slot, highlighted by its three-tiered jackpot wheel where our winner found his fortune.
These games pool a small percentage from wagers made across the entire network into a communal jackpot, awarded to the first player that makes a specific winning configuration.
Curious? We’ve many other network jackpot games available to play at Wildz including the likes of Mega Moolah, developed by Microgaming, plus NetEnt’s Mega Fortune, and vintage offering Fire Joker.
Best of the Rest
In any other monthly roundup, Razor Shark could easily have stolen top spot, helping one player to a healthy $438,900 payday on May 16th. Indeed, the win was enough to rank 1st in each of the previous three months.
But this, plus every other win banked at Wildz during May, was truly gazumped by the record-breaking $4.2M jackpot netted in Empire Fortune. Multi-million dollar scores do not come around every day, and it may be a while before we see a prize of this magnitude crop up again at Wildz.
Meanwhile, Book of Dead reaffirmed its place as one of the best-loved titles in the hearts of Wildz players. The Play’n GO blockbuster produced a score worth over $100,000 on May 27th, enough for third on our monthly list. The slot’s enduring appeal is undoubtedly helped by our unique Spinback™ bonus game that grants free spins to your favorite slots for five consecutive misses, but Book of Dead’s potentially lucrative Free Spins round remains another major draw.
Making a brace of appearances was low-volatile speciality, Jammin’ Jars, responsible for wins worth $98,543 and $57,760 apiece. Providing a steady stream of bite-sized wins, casual gamers swarm to the Push Gaming creation for its futuristic design and infectious audio.

100,000,000th Free Spin Campaign
On top of all the crazy big win action at the reels, May also saw us recognise another incredible feat as our 100,00,000th Free Spin was given out half way through the month.
To mark this milestone, we ran a promotion in the run-up to the event, offering a $10,000 cash prize to the recipient of the landmark spin. That player turned out to be a 25-year old enjoying complimentary spins on Temple Tumble courtesy of Spinback. As mentioned, the industry-first concept compensates players who miss five consecutive goes on Book of Dead with free spins to their favourite games. Ultimately it was a second chance worth $10,000 to our winner, thanks to the promotion.
Pragmatic Play $10,000 Giveaway
If that wasn’t all, we also teamed up with Pragmatic Play to give away $10,000 in prizes up until May 31st, exclusive to Wildz Loyalty+ members.
Players had to rack up qualifying points on Ultra Burn, Hot To Burn and John Hunter & the Book of Tut to grab their slice of the $10K prize pool, with a cool $5,000 awaiting the overall leaderboard winner.
It’s been a Wild four weeks for us all here at Wildz, and we’re super excited to see what the remaining summer months have in store. Will we see another life-changing jackpot triggered? Will a new title rise to the top of the rankings? We’ll let you know right here, next month.
