Wild Play Superbet Slot Review

There’s been some excellent futuristic themed slots in recent times, Neon Staxx is one that leaps immediately to mind, while other variants on a similar genre are also equally fun to play. The Wild Play SuperBet slot is a more modern slot, but it is one that offers a gentle nod to its past by including many retro-styled symbols on its five reels. With a rather catchy, Jean-Michel Jarre style soundtrack accompanying you as you play the 5×4 reels with 40 paylines, it is a slot which immediately captures the eye.

The look that NextGen Gaming have gone for with this slot is a traditional slot but with a more modern, creative style and they have hit that brief well with the clever use of bright colours and flashing symbols and animations when you land a win.  The game looks the part and sounds the part, but the question is whether this is all show and no substance and we can only discover that by delving deeper into what the slot has to offer.

First off, you can play on mobile as well as desktop and laptop devices and you can play from 50p per spin to £150 per spin. There’s the usual mix of higher and lower value symbols on the reels wit the fruit symbols of Cherries, Lemons and Melon being the lower value symbols along with the Bell. The Green and Blue Gems are mid-level symbols in terms of payouts with the 7 symbol being the highest offering 300 coins for five across a payline.   You can play this new slot now at Bet365 Games.

Wild Play SuperBet Slot Key Features

There are two main features of the Wild Play SuperBet slot and the first of these is the SuperBet feature. You can decide to apply this to your standard wager before your spin and if you do, then what it does is increase the size of the multiplier applied to any wins completed by a Wild symbol. At a standard level, the multiplier is x1 the amount, but by increasing the size of your wager from the standard 50 coins, you can increase the size of the multiplier as thus:

  • Level 0 – 50 Credits to bet – Each Wild win is a 1x multiplier
  • Level 1 – 100 Credits to bet – Each Wild win is a 2x multiplier
  • Level 2 – 200 Credits to bet – Each Wild win is a 3x multiplier
  • Level 3 – 250 Credits to bet – Each Wild win is a 4x multiplier
  • Level 4 – 300 Credits to bet – Each Wild win is a 5x multiplier

As you can see, the number of credits you need to increase the size of the multiplier isn’t scaled exactly. To get the 5x multiplier, you need to wager 6x your standard bet. Add to the fact that the size of the standard wins in the game are not that high to begin with and you can see why this is a slot that is of a more medium to higher variance and as such, will appeal mainly to players that enjoy this type of game.

Helping you land bigger wins however is the fact that you can use Wilds in conjunction with each other to increase the multiplier on a payline win. Land two 5x Wilds on two different reels on a single payline and you will get 10x that win, land three Wilds and that can be as much as 15x the win and of course, with Wilds stacked across the reels, there is a chance you can trigger this bonus across multiple paylines from a single spin.

The other main feature of the slot is the Free Games bonus which is triggered when you land three of the Bonus symbols anywhere across the reels. When this occurs you receive 10 free spins with no changes to the standard symbols on the reels, but your Wild Multiplier will automatically double in value. Which means if you are playing the SuperBet feature at the maximum 5x, during free spins your multiplier will be 10x the standard win.

That is not all though as during Free Games, if you land two or three Wilds on a payline then these Wilds are also added together as in the base game, which means you could trigger a 30x multiplier on a single (or multiple) payline wins. It is by landing these Wilds, especially stacked across multiple reels, which will lead to some of the bigger value wins in the game.


Editor's Review

Wild Play SuperBet is an interesting slot that fuses more retro-styled symbols into a modern looking 5×4 reel slot with a futuristic theme, electronic soundtrack and an unusual SuperBet feature, which allows you to increase the value of the multiplier on your Wild wins by up to 5x for a commensurate increase in bet size. This is a 40 payline slot that is simple to follow but which suffers from one key problem and that is as soon as you engage the SuperBet feature to its maximum value, the slot turns into a much higher variance game and the value of wins allied to the price of your total bet just makes it too expensive to play without hitting a big win. Lower variance slot fans should play this as a standard game, whereas higher variance fans should play with the Superbet feature enabled. All in all, a decent slot with plenty of options but nothing too groundbreaking.
