Midnight Wilds Slot (Playtech)
Thanks to Playtech, we get to witness the Aurora Borealis once again in a slot machine. This theme is present in the latest slot by Playtech that goes by the title, Midnight Wilds.
The design of the game borrows heavily from natural beauty, to be precise the planet’s cold regions. There are several wild animals present that appear in a stylized form.
For Midnight Wilds, Playtech has gone with a 5x3 reels design, which has become very common in most modern slots. A total of 243 ways to win are present.
I was surprised that a developer like Playtech could offer an RTP of 95% for a slot game with such high volatility.
Features that I came across include free spins and triggering scatters.
Betting and Prizes
Betting prices are not as bad though, as the game allows wagers of between $0.05 and $500.
Being a high volatility game; it means that the game has significant risk.
Midnight Wilds Slot Features
Midnight Wilds lacks when it comes to features. However, some special features do apply. This includes the options to access the bonus feature. However, this only happens to those players who are not based in the UK.
The features are the usual ones that are commonly found in other modern slots. The very first is Random Wilds. They are represented by an Orange Sun icon. These appear randomly on the slot’s reels.
Midnight Wilds use the wilds as replacement symbols for regular symbols. However, this does not apply to the scatters.
To get to the free spins, you will need the assistance of scatter symbols. However, you will need to land these scatters on all the required reels for you to enjoy the free spins.
Additional free spins can come your way if you manage to get 2-3 extra scatters.
With the help of the Buy Feature option, Playtech allows you to Gamble the free spins that you have been awarded. In such a scenario, you have the option to have as little as 0, or as many as 40.
Theme & Design
Midnight Wilds has wildlife and Northern Lights related theme. This is not a new theme as we have already seen it on previous games. This means that the slot lacks in originality.
There are several symbols available in this slot and they include Northern Lights, colourful gems, and some ghost-like wild creatures that include a bull, wolf, an owl, and a tiger. There are several feature -symbols and theses have orange snow-flakes (wilds) while the free spins are represented by blue Moonflowers.
Midnight Wilds is relatively boring. I did not enjoy the game at all, as it lacks a lot of things that are otherwise present in most modern slots. The RTP is nothing to write home about, while the few features available do not give the slot game any thrill.
