Wild Bazaar is a video slot created by NetEnt. It takes you somewhere far-away and exotic! Arab architecture dominates the background image as you wander from stall to stall, searching for the best deal possible. As you wander, you will find a seemingly unassuming stall. On it, you will find many locked boxes and pretty trinkets. Rumours say if you pick the right one, you will be blessed with good fortune!
We’re huge fans of this game’s graphics. We do wish that the developers went out of their way to recreate the chaotic feeling of a crowded bazaar. That said, the current iteration with only one stand does look nice by itself. And while it may not win you over with graphics, it offers four special features, attached. And all four involve Wilds in one form or another!
Play Wild Bazaar
Symbols are split into higher and lower paying tiers. Low-value icons are four trinkets with different coloured gemstones. Meanwhile, higher paying symbols are four chests, each with their own colour. The colours match up with the four gemstone icons. A golden W on a purple background is Wild and can replace any other symbol on the playing field.
How to Play
This NetEnt release is played on a 5x3 board with 26 fixed paylines. Somewhat of an odd choice on the developers’ part, but we’re not complaining. The slot uses the same layout you see in other NetEnt games. The only real difference is the colour scheme, which was adjusted to fit the theme.
The spin button is this gaudy, pink gemstone that sits right in front of you. To its right is the Max Bet button, while to its left is the Autoplay function. Selecting Autoplay allows players to skip spam-clicking one button over and over again, and letting the game handle it. To adjust your total bet, gamblers have to change their bet level and coin value. You can stake as little as $0.20, or as much as $400 per spin.
Wins are granted when three or more identical symbols appear in consecutive positions. All icons must follow one of the 26 active paylines and must start with the leftmost reel.
Strategy & Tips
Each time you form a win with one of the four chests, you activate a corresponding special feature. It is possible to trigger multiple at once, though it’s quite rare. Furthermore, you can activate one while another bonus is already playing. The special features and chest colours are as follows:
- Stacked Wilds – red chests: Wilds will appear fully stacked on the reels.
- Colossal Wilds – green chests: All Wilds appear as 2x2 Colossal icons.
- Linked Wilds – pink chests: When two Wilds appear on the same horizontal row, they will transform all symbols between them into Wilds.
- 2x Multiplier Wilds – blue chests: All wins that include at least one Wild will have a 2x multiplier applied.
The great thing about modern NetEnt slots is the fact they are available on both desktop and mobile. Both graphics and gameplay are identical regardless of what version you are playing.
