The game is suited to all kinds of players, with the option to bet very low or very high stakes. Hence the name, Wild Gambler, there are opportunities for heavy betters to stake big money on locked wilds or upgrade wilds to increase their chances of a serious pay-out.
The Wild Gambler game is always played with 20 active win lines. The number of active win lines is fixed and cannot be changed by the player.
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.
This increases the chance of getting wins. If the Auto Lock mode is disabled, the only Wilds which will be locked are the ones that were on the reels before turning off the Auto Lock mode or those manually selected by the player.
The pay-outs are relative to how much you choose to bet. The best possible pay-out comes from five wilds which are depicted by the polar bear. There is a special Wild section in the Info page.
Remember that with them your chances of winning will soar. Auto Lock is enabled, as a default feature. But if you disable Auto Lock, the sole Wilds remaining locked will be the Wilds that were on the reels.
For the disabling, use the Options, upper left. What will impress you in this game is the possibility for turning any symbol into a Wild.
Then you can use the symbol in lieu of any of the other symbols, save for the Scatter, the free spins symbol. With 5 Wilds, you have the right to a separate payout.
One thing to note is that the values of multipliers for the Wilds found in different positions will not be accumulated. With more than one Wild found on a winning line, the multiplier to be used will be only the highest one.
Bur if another Wild spins under a locked Wild, the values of their multipliers will be accumulated, with the maximum being 5x. Enjoying free spins is also great, when 3 at least Scatters come simultaneously on the reels in the main game.
The mode ends when the reels have been spun the number of times you have determined, when you do not have sufficient funds for the next spin, or when the Free Spins feature is triggered.
