Wildcat Canyon is yet another Western-themed online slot game, but this title doesn’t revolve around cowboys and sheriffs as you might be expecting. It actually has more of a wildlife feel to it, with the star of the show being a ferocious wild cat on steroids; and obviously, the backdrop displays a canyon with all the typical vegetation like cacti. The sky above the reels is bright blue with just a few fluffy white clouds floating about, and the visuals are very, very cartoonish – there is none of this 3D business going on. There isn’t even a real soundtrack present, which we think is quite a shame, but the symbols include a few local animals in addition to the scratched up lower value playing card icons.
The layout in Wildcat Canyon boasts 5 reels and 3 rows with a total of 25 active paylines, and as the paylines are not fixed, you will have the option to play with fewer of them if you prefer. As a matter of fact, you can choose to decrease the number of active paylines to just a single one. This means penny players will also find this slot appealing since the minimum bet is only 1p per single spin. The maximum bet, on the other hand, will set you back a more substantial £250 per spin.
Look out for the unnaturally muscular feline appearing only on reels 2 and 4. This is the game’s Wild symbol and one of the two most important icons in the whole game. The Wild will be able to substitute for any of the other symbols to help contribute to winning combos, but it won’t have the capacity to replace the game’s Scatter icon.
Unlike the Wild, the Scatter symbol will actually be able to appear in any position, on any of the five reels during gameplay, and this will be your way to trigger one of the two special features available in Wildcat Canyon – the Freespins Feature. More specifically, you can trigger the bonus by landing at least 3 Scatters anywhere in view during the same spin. This will offer you the chance to select one of three Freespins Games.
- Option 1 will award you a total of 15 freespins, during which any Wild wins will come with a 3x multiplier.
- The second choice will benefit you with 10 freespins, however, it boasts a higher multiplier on any wins including the Wild symbol, this is 5x.
- Option 3 will provide you with only 5 freespins but these come with an impressive 10x multiplier on all Wild wins. Furthermore, you can even retrigger the feature by landing another 3, 4, or 5 Scatter icons simultaneously. Then you will be able to select a different Freespins option if you so choose.
The Wildcat Respin Feature can only take place during the freespins, and it is triggered by landing any winning combo with a Wild in it. As a result, the reel with the Wild symbol will be held in place while the remaining ones respin once.
Wildcat Canyon is another fairly basic offering from NextGen Gaming that has a somewhat unusual bonus feature. But at the end of the day, it’s your average medium variance slot with not too much going on in terms of the entertainment.
