Wild Pixies is an enchanting online slot by Pragmatic Play. Honestly, when I first saw it, I immediately got the urge to try it.
First of all, it features a theme rarely found in online slots, unlike themes like the Egyptian, the Irish luck or the broad Christmas theme, featured in games like the video slot Ancient Egypt Classic.
Secondly, its design is amazing. But that’s not all there is to this game.
I particularly like the fact that Pragmatic Play developed this game with the purpose to entertain low-rollers. The game gives frequent decent wins and offers a payout of 500x the stake per spin, which means it is quite a rewarding online slot.
How to Play Wild Pixies
You can try out Wild Pixies for real money or for fun, whichever you prefer, but the first chance you get, do try it. The game offers pretty straightforward gameplay that revolves around the standard bonus features.
Naturally, Pragmatic Play has also included one or two new special features, but you can go through them with ease. Next, I will inform you all about the symbols you need to look out for to go through all the unique features and get to the maximum potential.
As you load the game, you will notice the little magical pixies flying behind the reels and diving into the dense woodlands.
On the reels, you see the Blue Male Pixie which is also the highest-paying symbol, followed by the Pink Female Pixie and the Green Male Pixie, the two next best-paying symbols.
The final high-value symbol you will see on the reels is the Blue Female Pixie. For the lowest-paying symbols, you will see the card symbols from A through 9, fittingly implemented into the theme.
The Wild is the golden Butterfly, which substitutes for all symbols on the reels except for the Scatter, appears on all reels and makes winning combos with its symbols, too.
The Scatter is the Precious Stone symbol, framed in gold, which appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 only, and is the symbol that will help you trigger the bonus game.
Should you land Scatters on all three reels, you trigger the Roaming Wilds Free Spins. But even if you land Scatters on reels 1 and 3 only, you get a second chance to trigger the bonus game with the special Scatter Nudge feature. This feature nudges the reels and tries to get you that last Scatter to help you trigger the Free Spins game.
Now, provided that you’ve gathered all Scatters needed, you get 8 Free Spins. During the bonus game, you will see three sets of two vacant positions appearing at the top of the reels. These positions can only be filled with Wilds. As you land Wilds on the reels, you fill those empty positions. For one set you fill, you trigger the Roaming Wilds, which means Wilds that go back on the reels at random places and stay there for the remaining Spins, and you get two additional Free Spins.
The same thing happens if you fill the next set, and the next, totaling in 6 Wilds added to the reels and up to 6 extra Free Spins.
Wild Pixies Technical Information
Wild Pixies offers 20 fixed paylines across 3 rows and 5 reels. The RTP the game provides is 96.5%, which is a reasonable one, offered in most slots. To decide the amount of your bet, you can choose a bet from 0.20 to 100 credits.
As mentioned, this is a rather convenient betting range for low-rollers, but high-rollers could also take advantage of the max bet and enjoy the game.
Wild Pixies Conclusion
When I review slot games, I like to focus on three things: of course, the RTP and payouts are on the top of my list, but I also want for the game I’m going to play to have beautiful visuals and plenty of bonus features. In my opinion, Wild Pixies meets my criteria.
It does feature a not-that-common theme, portrayed to perfection, with perfect visuals, and it does offer several exciting bonus features. The RTP is the standard one, used in most slots, so that’s okay, too.
Now, payout-wise, the 50,000 credits maximum might sound discouraging to most, high-rollers in particular, but let’s be real: this is a reasonable payout. You’re getting 500x the stake, and that’s something. That’s something I could go with, so I would recommend you to try it and see how the game will turn out for you.
