Legacy of the Wild Slot is a Playtech product that you can play at online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion casino. It has a standard 5×4 reels structure with 40 fixed paylines, It attraction lies first in its intriguing theme and then in some innovative gaming features.
The reels are set in a dingy room of an alchemist. The high win symbols are characters from the fantasy tale, headed by the old wizened alchemist himself. Then there are the wicked troll and ogre. You have a bewitching maiden and a lad aide to complete the list. The low win symbols appear to be the precious products created by the alchemist from base metal. The alchemist awards the highest line payouts and starts paying from a two-of-a-kind combination.
The first feature that you will encounter is the Collapsing Reels. Any winning combination will trigger another wave. All winning combinations explode after paying out, causing a new set of symbols to collapse on the reels. If winning combinations are formed again then another wave is initiated. This process continues till there are no new winning combinations. All waves are formed in the same spin without any addition to the staked bet. Each consecutive wave lights up one crystal in the Wave-O-Meter. If you can light five or more crystals then the free spins feature gets triggered. Five waves trigger 8 free spins and ten waves trigger 50 free spins. The feature cannot be retriggered.
The Book of Wilds is the wild symbol. It also awards line payouts that are the same as the alchemist. The Book of Wilds feature is the most interesting one in this Playtech online pokie. In the starting wave the Book of Wilds will appear as shown in the payout table. In the second wave a page wild symbol will open to the left of the book. In the third wave a page wild will open below, in the fourth wave a page wild will open above and in the fifth wave a page wild will open to the right. So you will have five wilds in the shape of a plus sign in the fifth wave. In the free spins, the Book of Wilds appear with all four adjacent pages open from the start.
The line bet varies from AU$0.01 to AU$3.00. The maximum total bet is AU$120, which should be acceptable to most high rollers. The top line payout of 750 coins may not seem attractive at first, but you have to factor in the Collapsing Reels feature.
