World Match’s debut Megaways release is an intriguing choice, as they’ve chosen to rework their original game, Into The Wilds, which wasn’t particularly memorable. Instead of using this opportunity to create something new and exciting with Into The Wilds Megaways, the Italy-based developer has simply incorporated a dynamic reels engine. The game only offers up to 16,807 win ways, which is far below the average for licensed BTG innovations. Furthermore, this new release has been designed as a portrait mode mobile-friendly slot, making it appear very small on larger screens. The game grid is also far away and the symbols shake before each spin, which may irritate some players. The base game is basic, featuring only wilds, and the bonus round is similar but with a x2 boost for wild wins. The premium gemstone symbols offer pay-outs between 3.15 and 7.5 times your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and the wild symbol can replace all regular pay symbols to help complete wins. However, the wild symbol has no value of its own and this game doesn’t feature a cascading wins mechanic, unlike many other Megaways engine games. The Free Spins Bonus Round is activated when you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere in view, awarding 8, 12 or 16 free spins, respectively. All wild wins are doubled in the bonus round, and the feature can be retriggered to win additional spins. The video of the gameplay lasts only 1:36 minutes, with about 50 seconds of base gameplay before triggering the bonus round. The transition from day to night is the only indication that something has happened. The most appealing aspect of this release is probably its title, Into the Wilds, which is reminiscent of the 2007 Sean Penn film of a similar name. However, the shaking symbols quickly become annoying and paradoxically, the ‘Fast Play’ option makes spins faster when turned off. The base game is rather monotonous, with only wilds to assist you. The game grid is so far away in this mobile-friendly Megaways version that there is ample room for a snake to slither across the stone tiles in the foreground. The maximum win isn’t even disclosed, and its RTP of 94.4 % is far from the only deterrent. In comparison, the original Into The Wilds offers a more immersive grid and a bonus round with x2 boosted wild wins. Other alternatives include Aztec Falls, a medium volatility slot from Northern Lights Gaming with unique features, and Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, a superior offering from Red Tiger with dynamic reels, an avalanche win multiplier, new modifiers, and a maximum win of 21,000 times your stake.
