Launched in March 2016, Wild Orient is yet another oriental themed offering from masters of the slot world; Microgaming. Like many Microgaming slots, this game follows the 243 ways to win format, but with a unique twist. So, if you fancy delving deep into the Asian rainforest and winning plenty of cash along the way, give the reels of Wild Orient a spin.
The reels of Wild Orient are set in a mystical steamy forest with a rustic bamboo frame. The oriental influence can be seen in every aspect of the game’s design. Symbols on the bamboo reels include the type of animals you can expect to stumble across in an eastern jungle. These include an elephant, a tiger, a panda bear, a Chinese heron and a monkey. The backing track consists of some relaxing traditional string music for most of the game, but the pace really picks up during the free spins bonus (which you’ll learn more about later) when some upbeat pan-pipe music plays.
How to play
This five reel slot has 243 different ways to win with each spin. Using the buttons at the bottom of the screen, adjust your wager to an amount between 25p and £125. The great thing about the game play of Wild Orient is the Reel Re-spin feature. This optional addition to the game is offered to you after every spin you make. Strike it lucky and you could win double your wager with every turn, but remember, opting into the re-spins feature too much will soon eat up your funds.
Bonuses and extras
The main bonus offering in this game is a free spins round which can be triggered by finding five elephant scatter symbols on the reels at once. This bonus dishes out a minimum of 15 free spins and can be re-triggered at any time. Any wins you make during this bonus round will be subject to a 3X multiplier.
