Celebrate World Food Day With These Tasty Titles!
Today, October 16, is an important day on the global calendar. That’s right, it’s the day we all celebrate some of the earth’s finest fare: World Food Day.
Food is one of the most important things in life, commanding a tier in Maslow’s famous ‘Hierarchy of Needs’. Slots falling under this category comprise a pretty important portion of our back catalogue too, so what better way to celebrate than by firing up one of the tastiest video slot creations available to play at Wildz? Here is a small selection of delectable titles to tickle your taste-buds:
We kick off with a fun video slot produced by leading software suite Pragmatic Play, guaranteed to get your juices flowing.
Brimming with visuals, the 6x5 grid-based Sweet Bonanza adopts the popular Cascading Reel mechanism which clears winning symbols from view and replaces them with new ones that tumble in from above to create new winning opportunities. On top of this useful integration, Sweet Bonanza also comes jam-packed with bonus features like Free Spins to sink your teeth into.
Land a quartet of Lollipop symbols to launch the bonus round, which grants you 10 spins to begin with and a return of double your wager. The appearance of every additional Scatter beyond this furnishes you with wins worth 4x or 80x your stake, meanwhile.
Sweeten the load further by looking out for lucrative candy bombs exploding onto the reels at random, which hold the key to more premium prizes in the base game. Catch multiplier bombs simultaneously, and you could be looking at a max payout worth a huge 21,100x your wager with multipliers added together and multiplied by the amount won.
Separately, we know full well how frustrating constant near misses can be, so, exclusive to Wildz, you can get a second chance free spin whenever you endure five consecutive misses playing Sweet Bonanza, thanks to our one of a kind feature called Spinback. Use your free spin to use on another fan favourite, Temple Tumble, set in the depths of the jungle.
La Dolce Vita
Get a taste of the sweet life with Gamomat’s 2017 release perfect for all you foodies out there.
La Dolce Vita invites you to the idyllic Italian countryside to feast on luscious wines, bread and oil, which act as the game’s higher paying symbols. The token playing card icons, meanwhile, make up the remainder of the paytable.
While La Dolce Vita will not win any awards in the design stakes, it does come with a small number of features to help you pad out your bankroll - like the token Scatter and Wild symbols, along with a customary Free Spins round. Help yourself to up to 25 of these whenever you catch at least three Scatters during a spin.
Overall La Dolce Vita is a charming slot that harkens back to a simpler way of life, amplified by its picturesque rural setting, reduced number of paylines (5-10) and small selection of features. Give it a try today to take in some sweet Italian air.
No food-centred news article is complete without an ode to one of the most popular video slots ever produced.
The evergreen Jammin’ Jars developed by Push Gaming has remained a true staple of the online casino world since it landed on our screens in 2018. The reasons for this are manifold - like its enlarged 8x8 grid-face housing the reel setup, or simply its funky vibe, accentuated by an equally groovy audio number.
Jammin’ Jars makes use of Cluster Wins, which requires wins to form clusters of at least 5 matching symbols whenever they connect either horizontally or vertically.
The slot is also notable for its selection of bonus features - like its randomly triggered Rainbow Feature. Marked by a distinct change in the game’s visuals and sounds, between 1 and 3 oversized fruit symbols then proceed to join the game, taking the form of 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 blocks.
The token free spins are also on offer, launched by catching 3 Scatters in any given spin. The Scatter, incidentally, is represented by the Jar symbol, which serves a secondary function as the game’s Wild.
All round-triggering Wilds/Scatters assist you by remaining in place as the feature begins, kicking off with 6 free spins. While the amount may seem modest, note that multipliers increases in increments of one every time Wilds help you make a win, and additional Wilds then lock in place for the duration of the round.
Don your best chef’s hat and prepare for a lucrative bake-off in Baker’s Treat.
The 5-reel, 3-row release from software powerhouse Play’n GO evokes the spirit of the Great British Summer, which every year sees scores of regular folk kick back with a warming cup of tea and some accompanying sweet delicacies.
Blending the age-old pass-time of baking with a new-age gaming experience, prepare to feast on all manner of edible delights across the 15 paylines in play on your way to some tasty rewards. Doubling your win opportunities with each spin, the game pays both ways, from both left to right and vice versa - a beneficial mechanic not adopted by many of today’s video slots.
Uniquely for a video slot, Baker’s Treat offers players several unique free spins games - built around each of its 5 ‘Flower Power’ features that are all synonymous with British cakes. Each cake is assigned to a particular reel, and once that reel is filled in full with its corresponding stacked symbol, one of five ‘Flower Power’ Free Spins round will commence.
The five reels kick off their respective free spins game when filled with the following stacked cake symbols: Cupcake (reel #1), Blueberry Pie (reel #2), Carrot Cake (reel #3), Lemon Cheesecake (reel #4) and Strawberry Sponge (reel #5).
Stacked wilds, transforming symbols and synchronized reels are a feature of the five different free spins games on offer, and this is a nice addition by Play’n GO that helps mix up the gameplay.
Separately, the game’s pièce to résistance, its ‘Bake Off’ feature will come into play if you manage to land each of the high paying cakes in their own corresponding reels. Manage this to activate 5 Super Spins, which give you the chance to bank up to 5,000x your stake.
Baker’s Treat is a delightful offering from Play’n GO, one perfectly suited to some casual spinning on World Food Day!
Last but by no means least on our rundown, get ready to turn up the heat in another hit slot crafted by one of the industry’s most esteemed game developers.
While Extra Chilli may not be resplendent with food-themed symbols, the gameplay is spiced up significantly by the software house’s own MegaWays game engine.
Big Time’s innovative shape-shifting system functions by randomising the number of paylines, or ‘Ways to ‘Win’, with each spin by, altering the height of each symbol that shows up on the reels. Typically played across a 7x7 setup, this amounts to a maximum 117,649 ways to win from any one spin, propelling your gaming experience to new heights and turning each round into a guessing game.
We see a return of the Cascading system adopted by other games in this article, termed ‘Reactions’ by the developer. But in a marked difference, the game features ‘dual cascades’ that benefit you by dropping in replacement symbols from both right to left, and vice versa.
Free Spins are up for grabs in Extra Chilli - but not in the usual way. Manage to spell out the word HOT, and you’ve got your hands on 8, and with unlimited multipliers thrown into the mix for every successful Reaction, the bonus feature can spell untold richest for the luckiest players.
If you don’t feel like hanging round, you can gain instant access to the round by shelling out the equivalent of 50x your stake.
The hardened gamers among you will be pleased to know the game offers a Gamble feature whenever you hit a winning combo in the base game. You can take the option for the chance to double your return, but you do risk walking away empty-handed if it goes wrong.
