Wild Orient is a slot machine which has been released by Microgaming, one of their more recent titles. The action takes place somewhere in the jungles of China, as evidenced by the presence of the bamboo trees, or that of the Panda bear. The slot is a modern title, so it uses things like 243 ways to win on the 5 reels, along with features like free spins, respins, multipliers, scatters and wilds. A $200,000 jackpot is also advertised, and it’s a pretty good prize to go after.
Betting and Prizes
It’s a slot that quite clearly has high rollers in mind, allowing the player to take the wager as high as $1,250, an amount that you can use to spin the reels a single time. That kind of wager will cover the 25 wager lines with $50 for each one. The line bet has up to 10 coins and the denomination will reach $5. The option to use a lot less is there though, so you can just spend $0.25 for one round if you want to.
Wild Orient game’s paytable indicates that the Elephant symbol can pay $200,000, which would be the amount offered for a $50 bet per line, or $1,250 total. It’s a 4,000x reward, which is pretty good for a slot with ways to win.
Wild Orient Slot Features
The major feature, at least in terms of importance and rarity, would be the Respin button. This one is placed underneath all the reels, and if you want to respin a reel once, and hopefully get the symbols you need, you can do it by clicking on the button and paying the price mentioned next to it. The bigger the potential combo that you can get, the bigger the price of the respin will be.
A wild symbol is part of the deal also, and it’s a regular one, which can only be used as a substitute. You can only get this wild on the reels 2 and 4, so it’s quite limited in its usefulness. Since it’s a slot where ways to win will form combinations differently, the wild still has its importance.
The final symbol is the scatter, which shows you images of statues of animals. Depending on how many times this symbol appears on the reels, the rewards can vary. You can win 1x to 100x the bet, plus you can also trigger 15 free spins, where all wins are multiplied by 3x. You can retrigger the free spins while you’re using them.
Theme & Design
The graphics tend to look interesting where the wild animals are shown, or when you look at the background picture, with its bamboo jungle. The animals include tigers, elephants, monkeys, birds and Panda bears. The downside is the presence of basic poker cards, ugly ones at that, with only a minimum of Chinese style customization to them.
Wild Orient should offer you more than enough to keep you occupied, especially with the Respin buttons that are in place underneath the reels. The graphics do disappoint thanks to those poker cards.
