Free Aurora Wilds slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Aurora Wilds slot by Microgaming is made by a smaller in-house developer called Neon Valley Studios and is pretty uninspiring despite this fact. You get a colourful grid over a night time northern mountain scene with the Aurora Borealis naturally appearing in the sky. Some soothing classical music and transparent reels complete the picture here and I must say the subject does make for some good artwork as we saw with Play' Go's Wild North, Quickspin's Northern Sky and Playtech's Arctic Treasure. So will it be darkness or the Northern Lights for our bankroll here?
A simple game is begun with 10 fixed pay lines which pay both ways over 5 reels and 3 rows. The symbols are all stacked on Aurora Wilds slot and the 5-of-a-kind pays are 25x Bars, 12x 7's, 6x Bird, 5x Bison, 4x Turtle and 2.5x Fish or Rabbit. All these animals are represented by coloured engravings and we do get some Wilds.
Yes, we've got a Starburst copy here essentially as any expanding Diamond landing on reels 2,3 or 4 pays the win if any then sticks in place for a free respin. You can get up to 3 respins if the 3 Wilds come in one at a time on consecutive respins. How original.
You get a Wheel scatter on the centre 3 reels too. Land all 3 and you spin for one of the fixed jackpots of 15, 50, 100 or even 2000x bet for the Grand one.
Aurora Wilds slot is simply a copy of a famous existing mechanic with some jackpot scatters thrown in for good measure. The appearance and graphics aren't even average although the 96.20% RTP is. The volatility is low with a maximum screen win of 250x bet which is even lower than the 500x possible (but never seen?) on Starburst. Yes, you could get lucky and get the Grand jackpot but otherwise I can see absolutely no point in staying out at night to see this particular aurora...
