The Wild Chase
Join the four thieves as they plan the next heist on the slot from Quickspin. The Wild Chase is taking you to a glamorous resort town on the Riviera, the kind of place where only the super rich hang out and just right for the four protagonists. Their signature move is a quick heist followed by a getaway in a racecar that will see the police chasing them in vain. Locked symbol respins and a free spins round can lead to win multipliers of up to x5 and payouts of up to 250 times your bet on a single spin.
The Wild Chase is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 25 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can be the getaway driver on desktop or mobile from 0.25 to 125 credits per spin. The game has low to medium volatility (2.51/5) with an RTP of 96.54%.
A postcard-perfect scene from a seaside town (strongly resembling the French principality on the Mediterranean coast) is in the background of the game window. The four thieves feature prominently on the reels together with luxury items from their heist. Two displays at the top will indicate the progressive multiplier as well as the collection of the bonus symbols.
Open the game to find wads of cash, diamond rings, luxury watches, keys for a sports car and sachets full of diamonds at the low end of the paytable, awarding 0.6x to 0.96x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by the four characters on blue, turquoise, green and red tiles. Hit five on a line to win 1.2x to 2x your stake.
An icon marked with ‘X” and the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular symbols while a safe marked with “Bonus” acts as the scatter.
The Wild Chase Slot Features
Central to the gameplay and the key to big wins is the Respin feature with a locking symbol mechanic. Any winning symbols landing on a spin are locked in place while all other positions respin. Hit more symbols that add to the winning combo to see them become sticky too and another respin is awarded. This continues until you either fill the entire screen or when no new matching symbols land on a respin.
During the respin feature, two twists will add more spice to the gameplay. First, are the Multiplier Wilds with any wilds landing in a winning combo on the initial spin or respin increasing the win multiplier by x1 all the way up to x5. The multiplier will reset to the default once a spin sequence ends.
Any scatter landing on the triggering spin or on a respin will be added to the counter in the top right corner. It will trigger the free spins round should you collect three bonus scatters within one spin sequence.
The Wild Chase is coming to its climax in the Free Spins feature. The game will award 10 free spins when you collect three bonus scatters, which can be retriggered. During the round, a multiplier wild is placed on a random reel position for every free spin, increasing the potential to hit a win. Note though that only wins where the multiplier wild is part of will be multiplied. The Respin feature is also in play in the free spins.
While the title and gameplay suggest that this could be indeed a fast-paced and exhilarating slot, the very low payouts make it look more like a relaxed Sunday drive to church. Even with the maximum multiplier, the most you can win on a single spin is 250 times your bet. Quickspin achieved up to 405x your bet in the free spins round in one billion test spins, not something avid slotting folks will be hot on their heels to chase. However, it is good for regular wins in the 50x to 100x range and thus not a bad game for wagering purposes.
