Blueprint Gaming has a knack for creating memorable slot machines, and they are always great fun with some great features. They usually also have some fantastic video animations and 3D graphics so we thought we would check out one of their latest installments Wild Antics.
This game takes us down into the grass to play some slots with some jolly looking ants. It reminds us of the Disney Pixar movie A Bugs Life with the blue humanoid ant characters really bringing the game to life. It runs like a dream and is one of the most interesting slots that we have played in a while.
The woodland background really makes the game stand out, and it has an adventurous feel to it. It is exciting to play, and the gameplay is solid but fluid. The graphics are fantastic, and the sense of adventure is really highlighted by the great sound effects. There is a free play demo mode that you can play before having to place real bets which is great and once you are ready to gamble you can bet from just 20p and this rises all the way up to a crazy £500! We like this flexibility as it will appeal to players with different budgets.
If you are new to slot games then you will encounter a wild symbol soon enough. The wild symbol usually substitutes for a lot of other symbols on the reel and lets players pick more winning combinations. The wild symbol on Wild Antics is the blue ant character that we mentioned above, and he is sitting on a flower, and he substitutes for everything except the bonus symbol If you manage to land him five times or more he can net you a big multiplier for your current bet. The more he appears, the more you will win so watch out for him as he is important.
Jet Pack Antics:
This is the main feature which you can activate by landing various ant symbols on the molehill. This feature then begins and it is a lot of fun and is split into 4 mini features which offer a variety of rewards. These are known as aardvark antics, frantic antics, colossal antics and the classic wild antics. Each has their own rewards which are meant to be light-hearted and fun so you can expect a combination of wilds and multipliers to add some serious cash to your balance.
Wild Antics Free Spins:
Most slot players love a free spins bonus round, and there is the chance to win some on this game. There are several ways in which you can win free spins with the mini-game activated in a variety of ways. You will be notified when the feature begins, and all you have to do is follow the instructions on the screen. We found that these triggered fairly often and really added to your game time overall. All you have to do is spin as you normally would and the feature will activate.
