Totally Wild slot has an appropriate title as the game is all about Wilds, features wildlife and is totally simple to boot. Novomatic take us to the South American jungle for our theme here and we have quite plain graphics and reels over a dark green background of forest fauna and there is the trademark Novomatic 'wheedle and trot' sound as we spin and stop the reels, with only the appearance of scatters adding any jungle noises. Last time Novo took us into the jungle it was with one of their worst ever games, Snake, Rattle & Roll so surely this must be significantly better! Sometimes simple games can be entertaining though, so let's hope our bankroll doesn't get 'totalled' here...
You'll get a 20-line game here which pays left-to-right only with single symbols on a standard 5x3 grid and there are no random in-play features. The scatter appears on all reels in the form of a Waterfall and is also Wild, but don't worry we haven't got yet another Book of Ra Deluxe clone! The scatters pay 100x bet for 5-of-a-kind ahead of the Jaguar at 50x, Monkey at 37.5x, Toucan 25x and Tree Frog also 25x. We get the obligatory five card values too, with A/K paying 7.5x and the Q/J/10 5x our 20-coin bet. That's really all there is to this game, aside from the bonus.
After seeing 3 Waterfall Wilds anywhere on the grid you will receive 10 free games which cannot be retriggered. If you are lucky enough to trigger them with 4 or 5 scatters 15 and 25 are awarded respectively and I say 'lucky' because the enhancement does result in some pretty good returns so the more spins the better! This enhancement is simple - your animal icons all turn into Wild for the duration so any 'dead' spins are rare and 5-of-a-kind wins very common. If you think of Merkur's Knight's Life when the Wilds build up on the reel in the bonus you will get the idea, although here the pays are much lower.
Totally Wild is no higher than medium in variance and has a pretty typical Novmatic RTP figure of 95.33%. Base game wins will keep your balance afloat longer than is usual for many Novo slots but the trade-off is that your bonus yield is pretty limited with only 50x bet for 5 Wilds in a line so you will be fortunate to get more than 200x bet in the free games. That said, the free spins aren't too hard to trigger and it's nigh on impossible to get a bad bonus either of less than around 50x bet and I found it paid over 100x most times. So a pretty basic game, with no fancy graphics or animations but one which will give you some entertainment for your bucks. I wouldn't say that I'm totally wild about the game myself, but I can see myself back in the jungle for another visit sometime...
