Travel to the far North on the slot from Yggdrasil Gaming for an encounter with ferocious creatures and a mesmerizing display of the Aurora Borealis. Untamed Wilds will take you on a tour of the Northern regions with three game modes, each with a wild modifier, and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 2,500 times your bet.
Untamed Wilds is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Your journey to the Arctic region on desktop or mobile will start at just 0.08 credits and peaks at 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.10%.
Get ready for a feast for your eyes as Yggdrasil will be taking you on a journey of the far North. Starting with a rather serene river scene with a calm lake and mountain range in the background, the game will change as it goes through the different modes. It goes from an Arctic landscape to a misty forest and culminates with a mesmerizing display of the Aurora Borealis in the free spins. The game window and controls are held very fittingly in wooden frames.
As usual, Yggdrasil executes a theme down to the smallest detail and of course that includes the pay symbols. They start at the low end with the card suites imprinted by an animal footmark, awarding wins of up to 2x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by owls, foxes, squirrels, wild boars and a lynx at the high level. Hit five on a line to win 5x to 30x your stake.
The game has three wild symbols – bear, moose, wolf – each appearing in its own game mode only. An intricate icon with the Aurora Borealis is the scatter symbol.
Untamed Wilds Slot Features
If you ever played Seasons from Yggdrasil Gaming, then you will be familiar with the game mechanic used on this slot. However, instead of four season modes, Untamed Wilds has only three different game modes, each based on a wild animal. They will switch randomly throughout the gameplay after being active for minimum 10 spins but they will not change during the free spins. Each game mode has a distinct wild modifier that will have a significant impact on your potential winnings.
- Bear Mode: Any bear wild landing on a spin will expand in a cross pattern, adding one wild in each direction.
- Wolf Mode: In my view the least exciting option. Any wolf wild landing on a spin will clone itself into a position on the reels that will guarantee the best winning combination for the current spin.
- Moose Mode: Is the option with the biggest win potential as it can multiply wins by up to x10. Landing one moose wild will multiply a win by x2, x3, x4 or x5. The multiplier will increase with each additional wild landing on the same spin, peaking at x7, x8, x9 or x10 for five moose wilds.
Get ready for a magnificent display of the Northern lights when you trigger the bonus feature. Three, four and five scatters will award 7, 15 and 30 free spins respectively. The mode on the triggering spin will be kept throughout the round which can be retriggered for up to 60 free spins.
Having extensively played Seasons from Yggdrasil as it is often used in their mission tournaments, we expected a little more creativity on Untamed Wilds. The modifiers are not really different from the original and the win potential is also similar. Nevertheless, it plays well and the medium variance as well as the extremely low minimum bet should provide for long and entertaining gaming sessions, even on a smaller budget. According to the Yggdrasil press release, the game will be exclusively released at Svenska Spel and should go global in the not too distant future.
