The Wandering City slot by Play'n Go is another in their Rich Wilde collection of explorer-themed games which began with the famous Book of Dead slot. Here the intrepid chap enters an underground Aztec temple which is odd as he's already done the Aztec Idols slot although this could be Inca as they're often hard to distinguish between. At least he escapes the dust of Egypt where he seems to go quite often as with Amulet of the Dead slot. So we have the obligatory local music, dramatic sounds and artefacts on the reels as per usual and they aren't bad at all. So can we stop our bankroll from wandering away here and will it be a city of treasure for us?
On the reels...
We have 243-ways to win so 5 reels of 3 rows each is how we begin on The Wandering City slot. Diamond Wild/scatters are the top pay at 4x stake as is the Explorer, Gold Mask 3x, Gold Idol or Dagger 2.5x with six card values paying either 1 or 0.8x for any full way of five. Symbols are single and we have one in-play modifier: there are x2 blocks above the middle 3 reels and when 1, 2 or all 3 are randomly illuminated you get the multiplier on any wins using their reel so 2, 4 or 8x is possible.
You need 3 or more Diamond Wild/scatters for 10 free spins which can retrigger. You still get the randomly multipliers over the middle 3 reels and of course we now have the typical expanding symbol. This is randomly selected and expands scattered if enough land, 2 for the premiums and 3 for card values. If the multipliers are active on any reel the expanding symbol appears on, these apply to the win too. As we have a ways slot, 2OAK wins effectively pay at 9x (not including any multipliers) 3OAK wins at 27x, 4OAK wins at 81x and of course the full screen of 5 symbols pays at 243x. I calculate that the top symbol Explorer at full screen will pay 4x bet x243 = 972x and with all 3 2x multipliers that would be 7776x. So your maximum win would be around a little higher than that.
The Wandering City slot has a 96.25% RTP although it may be lower at many casinos, even down to 84.25% so check! The sounds, graphics and animations are par for the course for this series of games so perfectly acceptable. The base game won't pay much so it's a good job the feature isn't too rare here as that's where the action and potential is all kept. With the low line pays you really need to get 3 or 4OAK of your selected symbol otherwise forget any decent returns, then for good returns at least one multiplier in play on them. It is what it is, a variation of an old mechanic in a new setting...
