Wildcat Canyon is an online slot game powered by NextGen casino game software. This cartoon-style slot game includes 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines in a game with a fun Wild West theme that incorporates a number of desert-dwelling animals, including the star of the game, the wildcat himself.
The bonus features of Wildcat Canyon include scatter and wild symbols and a free spins feature that offers players up to 10 free spins plus win multipliers, as well as sticky wilds during the free spins and the ability to retrigger the feature.
Graphics and Visuals
Wildcat Canyon is set against a backdrop of steep canyons, as its name suggests. Above these canyons is a wide blue sky dotted with wispy clouds, and occasionally players may see a desert animal scurry across the canyon in the distance. The whole slot has a cartoonish style to it, and the animals on the reel symbols are quite comical in appearance, each one evidently terrified of the fearsome wildcat that prowls the canyon. The reels are framed by a red rocky outcrop to add to the desert theme, and each reel symbol has the wildcat’s claw slashes at its corner.
The reel symbols in the game are all theme-related, and include an animated mountain goat, a black eagle, a trio of cacti and a red and black fanged snake. Also included as the lower paying symbols are standard playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A in a colourful font.
The wildcat himself serves as the pokie game’s wild symbol, which appears randomly on reels 2 and 4 during the game. The wildcat wild symbol can substitute all other symbols in the game to create winning combinations, with the exception of the paw print scatter symbol.
The wildcat’s paw print is the Wildcat Canyon scatter symbol in mobile pokies Australia. The main bonus feature of the game, the free spins feature, will be activated when 3 or more of these paw print scatters spin into view on the reels.
Free Spins and Win Multipliers
Once the free spins bonus feature has been triggered, players will be asked to choose from 3 ‘Select a Play’ options, with each option offering a number of free spins and a respective win multiplier. Players can choose between 15 free spins plus a 3x multiplier, 10 free spins plus a 5x multiplier or 5 free spins plus a 10x multiplier on all wins won during those free spins.
Additionally, any wildcat wild symbols that land during the free spins feature will become sticky wilds, sticking to the reels while they spin to create further winning combinations. A re-spin will also be awarded for every wild that lands during the feature.
Wildcat Canyon also offers a gamble feature. Players can use this feature to double or treble their most recent win by selecting this feature from the pay table directly after the win has spun in. Once this gamble option has been selected, players must correctly predict the colour of a hidden playing card to double their bets, or pick the correct suit of the card to quadruple their bets.
