Wild Hike Review
Whomever the hiker is, he or she has made a cozy camp for the night, with a campfire on the left-hand side. You get a nice selection of animals on the 6x4 grid, and these are owls, deer, boar, bears, and wolves. This is hardly the most original theme we have seen from Relax Gaming, however, and it comes across as somewhat of a side-project compared to what this developer is capable of and known for.
You get decent visuals, and the animal sounds are as authentic as it gets. You’re taken way above the treetops in the bonus round, as the transparent grid is set against the starry night sky, and the main feature is the expanding wilds respins round that comes with increasing wild multipliers as long as you keep winning. The multiplier is saved between respin rounds in the bonus round, for payouts up to 20,000x your stake.
Wild Hike Slot Features
The premium animal symbols pay 1.8 to 10 x your stake for 6 of a kind wins, and the howling wolf Wild can land on the 4 middle reels only. The wild steps in for pay symbols to help complete wins, and wilds expand when they land on reels 3 or 4. Expanding Wilds cover the full reel, and this also gives you a Respin where the expanded wild or wilds are sticky.
The Expanding Wilds come with multipliers that increase by +1 per respin, and you get indefinite respins as long as you keep winning. Scatters are sticky during respins as well, and multipliers on the expanded wilds multiply together if both are part of the same win. In the base game everything resets once the respins end.
You need 3 or 4 scatters in view to trigger the Bonus Round, and this gives you 7 or 10 free spins, respectively. Multipliers generated by the expanding wild respins feature are saved above reels 3 and 4 until the end of the bonus round, and you get +1 extra spin per scatter you land during the feature. Multipliers are carried over into the bonus round if you trigger the feature during a respins round.
Finally, non-UK players, and anyone eligible, can purchase the bonus round via the Bonus Buy menu. You get 3 or 4 triggering scatters for 75x your stake. You can also pay 150x your stake to get a bonus round where you’re guaranteed a win with a double expanding wild. The RTP increases to 96.54 % when you purchase the regular bonus round.
The 200 Spins Wild Hike Slot Experience
You get to see the expanding wild respins feature in the base game, before we purchase the bonus round at 0:27 into the 2:10-minute highlights video. We got the minimum of 7 free spins, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.
This is an unusually ordinary looking release from Relax Gaming, and it comes across as a shelf-filler compared to what we know this developer is capable of. It’s a decent North American animal/nature slot though, with realistic animal sounds when you land a win with either of them. The expanding wild with increasing multiplier per respin steals the show, and it’s a feature that can deliver solid payouts on a good day.
Many times you will not get all that many respins though, so the multiplier will not go very high, but once in a while it can take you by surprise. Of course, everything is enhanced once the multiplier only keeps building in the bonus round, and this is where you’re most likely to crack the 20,000x potential. This is a volatile release though, so it might not cater to casual players. Overall, we had a decent time with Wild Hike, but it’s a bit unexpected from a developer that usually goes for the spectacular.
