The Wild Machine Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play has tried to think, more outside the box with some recent game releases. Such as ‘Aztec Bonanza‘, there have been a lot of Asian inspired themed games released by the provider. Which has become so saturated now and seem to bore players in the casino community. New game ‘Mysterious‘, is a fantastic creation and I hope Pragmatic Play release more games like this. Next from the studio is a new game titled ‘The Wild Machine‘, set to release 12th March across all sites.

This slot is set in a lab with a scientist central to the game theme. The lab is the background, with various machines and small detail animations occurring. The scientist is floating on the right side of the game. I like the art style for this game and love how unique it is from the studio.

The Wild Machine has a setup of 5 reels by 5 rows, this includes 40 pay lines. This game is medium variance due to the max win capped at 7,000x and set RTP of 96.52%. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.

The Wild Machine Symbols & Paytable

This game has 12 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades. There are also 6 premium symbols, these are represented by keys, pocket watches, backpacks, potions, books and the scientist himself. In addition to these paying symbols is a wild and scatter symbol. The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The scatter symbol appears on reels 2,3 and 4 in the base game. The highest paying symbol is the scientist premium, which pays 175x for 7 across all reels.

The Wild Machine Features

Landing 3 scatter symbols will trigger the ‘Wonder Wheel Feature‘. The wheel is made of 30 sections, each with an award of cash or free spins. Up to 5 prizes can be awarded in the same spin. If the wheel awards free spins this feature will begin after.

You are able to choose from two free spins options. The first is ‘Gold Foundry Free Spins‘, which awards 8 free spins on a 5×5 grid. Randomly at every spin, a minimum of 2 – 5 reels can become fully stacked of wilds. This feature cannot be retriggered and is played on special reels.

The second option is ‘Diamond Forge Free Spins’, 5 spins are awarded. These spins are played on a 1x3x5x7x3x1 grid. During spins reels, 1,4 and 7 are guaranteed to contain wilds. Every wild that hits during spins will stay until the end of the feature. This feature cannot be retriggered and is played on special reels.


Overall, I think this game has great design and plays very well. I like the studio has gone with a different theme paired with a different art style. The variance is well suited and it is overall a great game. Be sure to try it for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
