Reviews Ash Gaming’s Amazon Wild Slot Machine
Amazon Wild is a 100-payline slot developed by Ash Gaming, a European company that develops interactive casino games. The theme of the game is the Amazon rainforest and the Aztec civilization that thrived there. The game is colorful with decent graphics, has five reels with symbols that are reminiscent of the Aztecs. An online slot with a user-friendly interface, Amazon Wild is a product of the combined efforts of Playtech gaming and Ash Gaming. It is one of those online slots that both amateurs and experienced slot players will enjoy.
Theme of the Game
Amazon Wild is not entirely about the rainforest we have today. The slot focuses on both the wildlife in the Amazon and also on the tribes that once flourished there. The developer has tried to represent the wilderness as well as the cultural facets of the rainforest through the symbols, the graphics and the background sounds. In addition to the sounds of birds and insects, you also hear tribal drum beats when the reels spin.
While the graphics are colorful, they could have been better, in terms of the quality. The symbols in the game include animals of the rainforest – a black panther, an iguana, a red frog and the Peru Capuchin monkey. In addition to the animals, you will also find birds like the Toucan, the colorful Green Wing Macaw parrot, the Golden Conure and the Hummingbird. The symbols also feature colorful flora of the Amazon rainforest. The game is not as appealing as it could have been, owing to poor quality graphics that fail to depict the beautiful rainforest as it is.
Other symbols include an Aztec tribal artifact, which also acts as the Wild. The game also has a scatter symbol, an Amazon map that triggers the bonus game. The wild replaces all, but the map symbol. The birds and animals on the reels are animated when they are a part of a wining payline, or form a winning payline.
How to Play
Players have to bet on all the 100 paylines that the slot has. However, the amount that can be bet on each of these paylines can be adjusted. The minimum bet per line is 0.01, or 1 per spin. The maximum bet per line is 1, which means you can bet as high as 100 credits every spin. The panther is the highest paying symbol, and offers 1000x if it appears five times on a winning payline. The other animals follow in terms of highest payouts, followed by the flora and the bird symbols.
Amazon Wild has only one bonus round, called the Amazon map game, which is triggered when the scatter, the map symbol, appears at least 3 times on the reels. The feature, once triggered, requires the players to select one of the ruins on the screen which award a specific prize. It is a pick-me bonus, and the number of picks you get during the game is determined by the number of scatters you get.
In addition to activating the bonus round, the scatter symbols also activate a multiplier feature, which is again determined by the number of scatter symbols you get. The multiplier could be anywhere between 4 and 22 if you get 3 scatters, 25 and 60 if you get 4 scatters and 500 and 2000 if you get 5 scatters on a winning payline. The multipliers are applied to the total stake for all lines. The rewards that the game offers are generous, provided your stakes are high.
