About Wild Antics
Just as in the sotto voce aforementioned Disney/Pixar smash the Ants are the key players here, though they are joined by a Caterpillar, Ladybird and Snail which make up our high-paying symbols. As we spin the reels we are accompanied by a playful soundtrack, keeping this slot firmly in the light-hearted camp. The Flower Ant Wild acts as our Wild symbol, appearing across the reels and ready to substitute for all other symbols except Scatters.
The betting interfaces are super simple, with us only able to toggle our Total Bet, rather than change coin amounts, bet levels and even payline levels that some other online slots allow us to. However, the benefit of this pared-down betting system is that it is incredibly easy to keep track of what we are betting and see those results with each winning combination we score.
As far as we’re concerned, the more bonus features a slot has, the better. It is here that Wild Antics really stands out, offering a Free Spins feature with any one of four distinct enhancements. Landing the Aardvark Scatter on reels 1 and 5 – plus one of either the Worker, Soldier, Colonel or Queen Scatters – launches the bonus game, which features either Roaming Wilds, Multiplying Roaming Wilds, Expanding Roaming Wilds or Colossal Roaming Wilds. These last two variants increase the pay-lines playable to 40 rather than 30, thereby boosting our win potential right from the off.
The other main bonus feature that Wild Antics boasts is the randomly-triggered Jet Pack Antics bonus. Now, the Aardvark Antics, Frantic Antics, Colossal Antics or Wild Antics either randomly turn reels Wild, shuffle symbols into winning combinations, add colossal Wilds to the reels or march Wilds onto the reels. All at random and at the will of the colony. These Jet Pack Antics can also be triggered at the end of the bonus rounds. Frantic.
