Set in a post-apocalyptic nightmare, where zombies roam the streets and destruction reigns, Wild Walker Slot is a game designed to thrill and terrify in equal parts. Brought to you from Pragmatic Play, this gory game has 25 pay-lines and consists of 5 reels. This is until special spin rounds trigger additional zombies who are able to activate three more reels. The wager range is between 25p to £125 per spin, with the top prize of 4900x your bet. Players win the game by matching symbols from the left side across the available pay lines, the minimum match being three symbols. At times you will be assisted by wild zombies who can transform into other symbols to help you create longer matches. The RTP for Wild Walkers is 96.55% which is pretty high, hopefully meaning plenty of small wins with a few big wins now and again. Loosely based on The Walking Dead franchise, Wild Walker is a zombie obsessed, brain-eating thrill ride with excellent graphics and a high pay-out.
Graphics and theme
The game takes place in two different settings; the first you see is within the base game. This setting includes burning cars, a smoke-filled sky and a general feeling of chaos. The second setting you get to see when you enter the bonus game with eight reels. This part of the game takes place within a mad scientist’s laboratory, with a new sci-fi-inspired board and with the company of one of the survivors helping you from the right-hand side of the screen. The graphics start to perform when wilds are introduced, which are represented by very realistic zombies of different characters, including a doctor, policeman and what was a young woman. The backing music is a kind of crazy futuristic beat which works well with the moaning zombies and sci-fi sound effects. Wins are accompanied by a blood-drenched ‘superb’ or ‘mega’ plastered across the screen with coins flying everywhere.
There are two main bonus features to Wild Walker. The first is the expanded roaming wilds feature which is a 1×3 full reel sized symbol which has the power to substitute for any other symbol bar the bonus. The wandering wild as it is called is present on every spin and switches randomly to a selected reel taking up all three positions on that reel. Wandering wilds are also activated when next to other reels. You get 1.2x for three or 6x for four in a row.
The second central feature is free spins, which in this game are progressive. The gas mask symbol is the scatter which appears on all reels. When 3 or 4 of these symbols appear on the board, players are rewarded with eight free spins, starting with the first or second reel respectively.
When the bonus free spins round is activated and the board changes from the street view hellscape to the laboratory, players get to enjoy an exciting cut scene where hoards of the undead hobble past the screen. These free spins earned in the Hellscape are then used in the lab setting to try and win big bonus prizes.
To move through the levels, you must continue to collect gas mask symbols (scatters) with every three collected the next level is unlocked, with two free spins added to your total. When all of the reels are unlocked, players can keep collecting scatters, with every three collected adding two more free spins. There is no limit to the free spins you can achieve once at this stage.
As you progress through the rounds from 1 to 4 progressively, more bonus features are added to increase your chances of winning. At level one, there are five reels active with one expanded roaming wild at play. At level, two six reels are active, with one expanded wild locked onto reel 1 with another roaming free. At level 3, 7 reels are active with two locked wilds and 1-2 roaming wilds on the prowl. And finally, at level 4, all eight reels are active with three locked-in wilds and 1-3 roaming wilds at play.
