Playtech Wild Gambler Sequel Is Worth Playing

Playtech has a slot game titled Wild Gambler in its portfolio, which became popular for its Lock & Spin feature. It later released a sequel titled Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure. However, most players who want to play the volatile Lock & Spin feature automatically head for the earlier game, which was set in the Safari plains of Africa. Arctic Adventure sets the scene in the frozen climes of the polar region, with the polar bear replacing the lion as the main symbol. The other animal symbols and graphics are also appropriately changed. Arctic Adventure is live at all Playtech online casinos like Casino Tropez and Omni Casino.

The polar bear is the wild symbol and awards the largest line payouts, but for only five of a kind combination. The other high paying symbols are the caribou, the walrus, the white fox and the penguin. Though the penguin is not an Arctic creature it usually finds a place in Arctic themed slot games. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons crafted in ice.

The Lock & Spin feature is the highlight of Arctic Gambler. Any wild symbol that appears on the reel can be locked in place for the next spin by paying a price. The enhanced wager required is displayed on the screen. If you think that this is worth it, then activate the Lock & Spin feature. Wild symbols appearing on the reels toward the left have a higher price because they are more likely to lead to winning combinations. The locked wild symbols will remain in place till they are deactivated.

Arctic Adventure allows you to create your own locked wilds through the Play Your Way feature. You can convert any symbol to a locked wild by clicking on it. The total bet with the locked wild will be displayed on your screen. You can also increase the multiplier value of each locked wild to up to 5x. Again, this benefit comes at a cost. You should be careful not to go overboard in using this facility because the costs start rising steeply.

Arctic Adventure includes a regular free spins feature that is triggered by three or more Free Spins symbols landing anywhere on the reels. Three symbols award 7 free spins, four symbols award 12 free spins and five symbols award 20 free spins. Any locked wilds and multipliers on the reels in the triggering spin will remain in place. Any wilds landing on the reels during the free spins will automatically be locked.
