Wild Harlequin Slot (Quickspin)

Wild Harlequin Slot (Quickspin)The latest release by Quickspin, Wild Harlequin is a game that is loaded with lots of goodies, including a classic character that serves as its main feature symbol.

I love the high-quality graphics that give it a modern touch, and not really the classic vibe that many plyers may confuse it for:

Game Set-Up

Wild Harlequin offers 5 reels for its setup, and I got to use 10 pay lines. I’m quite impressed with its long list of features that include expanding Harlequin Wilds, and free spins that come with multipliers.

Betting and Prizes

Playing on the available 10 active lines, I needed to use between $0.10 and $100 per spin, or $0.01 and $10 per real money line bet.

Wild Harlequin offers a top jackpot of 30,000x the stake, but one thing that I noticed about it is its high volatility.

However, to provide a fair playing ground the game developer has given it a very decent RTP of 96.27%.

Wild Harlequin Features

The gorgeous Harlequin serves as the wild symbol, and it is a stacked/expanding symbol, which mostly takes over an entire full reel. This is with the help of its nudge mechanism, that will push it in place but only when partially visible.

A combo of up to five such icons will pay you 10x the stake, and this is the highest that you can get without the features coming in.

With at least 3 Harlequin symbols appearing on the reels, the slot activates up to 10 free spins. The triggering reels will be transformed into Magic Reels.

At this stage, the free spins multiplier gets a 1x boost whenever a wild lands on any of those reels. In case there are multipliers coming from numerous reels in a combo, it is possible to have them multiply each other. This way, they get to a more impressive level. However, one thing that I realised is that these multipliers are only connected to the wilds, and will not be applied to regular wins that don’t have them.

To trigger more free spins, I needed to boost the multiplier available on the Magic Reels to a level that is divisible by 5. Whenever I got multipliers at 5x, 10x, or 15x, etc, then the game added an extra 2 free spins to the overall.

If you want to calculate the free spins quickly without going through all the hard work, there is a purchase option available.

Theme & Design

Quickspin has gone with a rather unusual joker-themed design Personally., I don’t find the storyline interesting, but the Harlequin symbols that serve as the expanding wild is quite fascinating.

The present symbols include four premium icons with some gemstones, plus four low paying card suit symbols.

Conclusion

Although it appears to be a pleasant slot machine, this is primarily since it contains the appropriate features.

The downside is that most of the excitement will come from the free spins, and you will spend the majority of your time in the main game, where the only thing that will keep things exciting is the stacked Harlequin Wild symbol.

However, if you are more interested in top payouts, then Wild Harlequin will be a great choice for its excellent potential.
