Wild Times is an online video pokie from developers Barcrest. Barcrest have spent the last thirty years or so improving their pokie formula and providing the pubs of England with their pokie machines. It comes as no surprise then that it is using this experience to provide some top quality online pokies as well.
While many online pokies today strive to cram more features into them, as well as having more intricate themes, Barcrest has taken Wild Times and made a classic, almost vintage, online pokie. However, it has still spiced things up a little with some interesting features.
Wild Times Graphics and Themes
Wild Times may be slightly limited by the classic theme, but that hasn’t stopped Barcrest from making sure it has some of the finest graphics and smoothest animations around. The symbols used on the reels include the most classic pokie symbols including cherries, lemons, oranges and plums, stars and bells.
Wild Times Features
Being a classic pokie, Wild Times only has three reels, three rows and five paylines on offer. It isn’t really meant for high rollers, as the maximum win is 500x your line bet, however, the betting range is quite large ranging from 10c to $500 per spin. If you manage to get three identical symbols on your payline, you’ll win 20x your line bet with cherries, lemons, oranges and plums, 50x with the bars and melon, 100x with the bell and blue star and 500x with the red star.
It gets even better if you can make a winning combination with the Wild symbol. When the Wild helps to make a winning combo, it brings up a Lucky Spin wheel, which will choose a random multiplier for the player which can be either 5x, 6x, 8x or even 10x. Get a winning combo with more than one Wild and the multipliers will stack as well.
Finally, there is also the Big Bet mode, which will cost more to activate but instead of five paylines, they player will get 27. This obviously greatly increases the chances of winning.
Wild Times Conclusion
Wild Times proves to be an easy to learn, easy to play classic online pokie. It has enough additional tweaks and features to make this classic feel fresh and should entertain most players. Some players will obviously prefer more detailed themes and features, but if the classic feel doesn’t put you off, you should definitely give it a try.
