Wild Gambler

5-Reel 20-Line Slots

The objective of Wild Gambler is to obtain winning symbol combinations by spinning the reels.


  • This game is played with a fixed number of 20 active paylines. Your total bet per game round is your line bet × 20.
  • Normal symbols can be turned into WILD symbols. Clicking on a symbol selects it and turns it into a WILD. Clicking on a WILD symbol de-selects it and removes the WILD.
  • The line bet can be selected on the LINE STAKE panel.
    • Click ‘−’ or ‘+’ under the LINE STAKE to choose the line bet.
    • You can switch on or off the Auto Lock feature. When turned on, all new WILDS that appear on the reels are automatically locked and kept during the subsequent spins. If the Auto Lock feature is disabled, only the WILDS selected by the player will be carried forward in the Lock & Spin mode. Auto Lock is enabled by default.
  • Clicking the SPIN button spins the reels with the currently selected total bet.
  • During the reel spin the SPIN button changes into STOP. Clicking STOP ends the spin animation and immediately displays the spin result.
  • Clicking the LOCK & SPIN button keeps the WILD symbols currently on the reels and spins the reels so that only the other symbols are changed. This increases the chance of getting wins. The total bet will be shown on the LOCK & SPIN button and will vary depending on where the WILDS are on the reels. Note: The total bet in the Lock & Spin mode is always higher than the total bet in the normal spin mode.
  • To use Autoplay, you must first set the Autoplay session limitations. See below for more information about setting Autoplay limitations.
  • Reels can also be spun using the Auto play function. Mouse over the AUTO PLAY button to display the list of options.
  • Click on an option to start the Auto play function. During the Auto play mode the AUTO PLAY button changes into STOP. Click the STOP button to stop Auto play mode.
  • To enter the triggered feature, click the CLICK TO START button. After the end of the feature, click CONTINUE on the winnings summary screen to return to the main game or resume the Auto play mode (if there are any auto spins left to play).
  • The paytable can be accessed via the INFO page.


Before entering Autoplay mode you must set the Autoplay session limitations. The set Autoplay session limitations apply to only one Autoplay session in the current game.

In the ‘Responsible Gaming – Auto Play’ dialog box, you can set the following:

  • Stop Autoplay on overall loss of: (mandatory). The amount of money you can spend in the Autoplay session. If you reach the set limit, Autoplay will stop.
    Note that each Autoplay bet reduces the set limit, and each Autoplay win increases the remaining limit.
  • Stop on single win more than: Checkbox and win amount (optional). Autoplay will stop if you win more than the set amount, on a single bet.
  • Stop Autoplay on Jackpot win: Checkbox (optional). Autoplay will stop when you win the Jackpot. This limitation is available only for progressive games.

To save your settings and start the Autoplay session, click Confirm. To return to your regular gameplay, click Exit.


  • Wins are calculated according to the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Menu.
  • Line win = line bet × corresponding multiplier according to the paytable.
  • If more than 1 active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are added up. If 2 winning combinations occur on the same line, you will be paid the value of the higher winning combination. Winning combinations must start from the leftmost reel, and the symbols have to be consecutive along a payline.
  • The accumulating winnings and all payline wins are shown for each winning spin. In the case of large wins, a Win popup opens displaying the total spin revenue.


The maximum win in the game has an upper limit. For more information, see the Terms and Conditions section.


The WILD symbol can stand for any other symbol to make the best possible winning combination. There is also a separate payout for 5 WILD symbols on an active payline, as seen in the Paytable.

The player has the option to change any symbol into a WILD symbol. This is done by clicking on the symbol, which ‘locks’ a WILD symbol in place. Locking the WILDS means that they will be held from 1 spin to the next, and only the other symbols will change when the reels are spun in the Lock & Spin mode. A small padlock in the upper right-hand corner of the WILD symbol indicates that it is locked. Using Lock & Spin increases the chance of getting wins and the total bet in this mode is always higher than the total bet in the normal spin mode.

When there are other WILDS in the spin results, they can also be unlocked (when Auto Lock is on) or locked (when Auto Lock is off) by clicking on them. If Auto Lock is enabled, the padlock is black and all new WILDS that appear are locked automatically. If Auto Lock is disabled, the padlock is red. Auto Lock is enabled by default.

Each WILD will stay locked indefinitely until it is unlocked manually or the normal spin mode is used instead of the Lock & Spin mode. To unlock a WILD manually, click on it. This will remove the WILD symbol from the reels. Using the normal spin mode does not keep the WILDS on the reels and changes all symbols.


During the main game, meerkats appear occasionally at the bottom of the game window holding up letters. If 5 meerkats holding up the ‘B’, ‘O’, ‘N’, ‘U’ and ‘S’ letters appear after a spin, the Free Spins feature is triggered. Click PLAY to enter the bonus round. A message appears at the beginning of the feature saying that you have won 8 Free Spins. To start the feature, click CONTINUE.

During Free Spins, the reels are spun automatically using the same bet per line as on the spin that won the feature. All WILDS from the feature triggering spin will be locked and any new WILDS that appear during the feature will be automatically locked for the remaining free spins. Note: New WILDS will be kept in place regardless of whether the Auto Lock feature is enabled or disabled.

After each Free Spin, the Win field shows the winnings from the current spin. The Total Win field shows the accumulated winnings from all free spins played so far. After all Free Spins have been completed a screen appears showing the accumulated winnings from all free spins. The overall amount you have won during the free spins will also be displayed in the Win field in the main game.

If the Free Spins are triggered during the Auto Play mode, the feature begins after the player clicks on PLAY and then CONTINUE. The Auto Play mode does not continue after all free spins have been played.
