Detective Wilder – Game overview
Detective Wilder is a slot that feels like a police drama! That’s because the slot is laced with the brilliant flashing of police car lights, screeching sirens and the sounds of gunfire! We can also hear voice-overs from the crime-busting detective! Four different villains represent four upper-paying symbols. The illustrations are phenomenal, with bright, neon colours and a soundtrack suitable for a gritty police theme. There are also five lower-paying royal flush poker icons.
The slot has an RTP of 94.28% and bets ranging from £0.40 to £10. The slot has a high variance, so be prepared to play with a higher bankroll. We can also play the game from different platforms, including mobile, tablet and desktop. If we’re on the move, then we need an Android or iOS device.
The slot has high volatility, with an RTP of 94.28%.
Game features of Detective Wilder
Villains Turn to Wilds
The Villains Turn to Wilds feature is randomly triggered. Here, the detective may investigate any of the villain symbols for evidence of a crime. If he ‘busts’ that villain, then all instances of that villain transform into wilds.
Once the busted villains have become wilds, they are locked in place for a re-spin of the other symbols. If more of the same villain land on a re-spin, they also lock in place for another re-spin, and this continues providing that more wilds are added. After the re-spins, the detective may investigate another villain, or our final win is calculated.
This game offers three features: Investigation Re-Spins, Villains Turn to Wilds and a progressive multiplier.
When 5, 10 or 15 villain symbols are busted in the re-spins, a respective win multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x is applied.
Detective Themed slots
I’ve tested a lot of slots and I happen to like slots that put you in the shoes of a detective (just as I like to play on the side of the criminals too, actually, depending on the game’s story). And one I particularly like is Hotline 2. The fact that NetEnt is the developer helps a lot.
Detective Wilder opinion: Exciting and Gritty Crime Theme
Detective Wilder slot is an exciting game if one enjoys gritty crime-fighting themes. This slot has all the bells and whistles for the artwork and audio, and I found my experience on this game generally positive.
Although the slot does not offer extra spins, the re-spins are triggered often enough that I could maybe overlook this. As far as payouts were concerned, larger ones were definitely harder to come by, and after a few hundred spins, I managed to crack 20x total bet four times. One of those times was for a 333x total bet, but each player’s results will be different.
Players that like high volatility slots based on a gritty theme might also like Mission Cash from Play’n GO. I thought that this was an alright slot, but nothing that reinvents the reel or that I’m going to remember for long. I am a fan of Red Tiger Gaming and their Jackpot Drops, and we won’t find that in this game.
