Wild Pixies Slot
Wild Pixies is a new 2019 slot machine from Pragmatic Play, out on April 11th. The picturesque game consists of 20 pay lines and 5 different 3-symbol reels. Here in this review, we will tell you everything that you need to know about this remarkable new slot. First, however, some basics:
- Pay lines: 20
- RTP: 96.50 %
- Volatility: Medium
- Features: Scatter Nudge, Free Spins, Collectable Wilds
Wild Pixies Free Spins and Bonus
It is obvious that Pragmatic Play generally likes to go for the retro feel in their slots. This is best evidenced by the fact that their slots oftentimes are very clear and crisp, yet rather simple in nature. All in all, Pragmatic Play slots—including Wild Pixies—are extremely approachable.
The base game of Wild Pixies is, again, rather simple, and acts more like a vehicle than anything else. The thing you want to do here is get three scatters on your screen on reels 1, 3 and 5. For added excitement, however, Pragmatic Play has employed something that they call Scatter Nudge in the game. If the scatter on the 5th reel—and the 5th reel only—just misses the screen or is left above it, the Scatter Nudge has a 70% chance to do the job and trigger the free spins feature regardless.
In Wild Pixies, collecting three scatters gets you in the free spins door. Here you always start with 8 free spins, but if you are in luck, you might score as many as 6 more.
What makes Wild Pixies’ free spins special is the fact that you are constantly on the lookout for new wilds on your screen. With every two wilds that you collect (up to 6), you get two additional free spins and two random wilds on every one of your remaining spins. Thus, if you manage to collect your six wilds in a timely manner, you could be in for a lot of fun with 6 out of 15 symbols being covered with wilds for the rest of your bonus. Needless to say, the chances for big wins here are extremely high and you could even walk away with a few wild lines here and there.
Wild Pixies Theme and Symbols
Wild Pixies takes place in some sort of a fantasy land that would probably even make J. R. R. Tolkien proud. In the background, you can see a lush green forest with none other than pixie dust sprinkled around.
Wild Pixies consists of 12 different symbols. The less-valuable ones here include the typical card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. After these, there are four pixie symbols with handsome Legolas-like princes and beautiful female princesses. To cap things off, you can also find wild symbols in the form of butterflies as well as golden scatters.
The world of sounds in Wild Pixies is nothing too remarkable with Pragmatic Play’s usual blims and bloms and classic fire alarm sounds. On the other hand, the atmospheric background music does suit the pixie forest theme rather well.
Wild Pixies RTP and Volatility
Unlike most game providers, Pragmatic Play always tells you what their game’s volatility is straight out of the gate. According to our best judgement, we think that just about 3.5 of the 5 thunderbolts are lit here, which would mean that the volatility here is rather average. In other words, you should not run into too many consequent dead spins, although you, of course, can never really know with slots.
Wild Pixies – How to Play
Wild Pixies is a rather simple game, the like of which you could easily expect to find at an actual brick-and-mortar casino. There really aren’t a lot of instructions that we can give you here, although you might run into a few misunderstandings here and there with only 20 pay lines available.
Bet Levels and Wins
The minimum bet in Wild Pixies is 20p. If you want to go for the biggest wins, however, you can even opt for £100 per spin. Luckily, though, there are a lot of options even between the two extremities.
All of the card symbols are valued pretty much the same. After them, in order of value, you will find the blue female pixie, the green male pixie, the red female pixie and finally the blue male pixie. A complete wild line will give you your bet back 25-fold, which might not sound all that impressive, but you are probably going to run into more wild lines in this game than most others, all thanks to the ample amount of wilds in the free spins mode.
Wild Pixies – Slotsia Verdict
We at Slotsia are really digging the sheer simplicity of many of Pragmatic Play’s slots. Casino players looking for deeper experiences might not like how similar some of this provider’s games are with one another, but people who love brick-and-mortar casinos probably don’t mind. After all, it is always great to find a lot of different kinds of games so we can always switch around if we want to.
During our test of £50 and 50 spins, we were able to trigger the free spins mode and win our bet back 230-fold. During these free spins, we were able to score wilds in abundance and immediately felt the best of what Wild Pixies has to offer. We really recommend you give it—and especially its free spins mode—a try.
