The kind of Wild Antics that Blueprint Gaming are serving up here in the Wild Antics Slot, a five reel, 20 pay-line gem are the kind that Disney would love to get its hands on. Though you suspect the Waltites would serve up these antics with more than a little extra song and dance. Fortunately, we are the masters of our own destiny as far as slots soundtracks are concerned. Leaving us to focus on the game-play and bonuses on offer,of which there are several.
While we did say we could choose our own soundtrack to accompany the game-play. Blueprint serve up some playful ditties for the intro to this title which continue when we spin the reels. The Ants are our heroes here, though Caterpillar, Ladybird and Snail all make an appearance as our high-paying symbols. And if I’m not much mistaken, some of these bugs bear a striking resemblance to (though are legally distinct from) some of Disney’s characters in one of its famous bug-focused films.
Although this entire game is wild, our Wild symbol is an Ant peering through a flower and doing the usual substitution duties for all symbols except Scatters. Of which there are many, the Aardvark Bonus Scatter is our chief culprit. Though he needs one of a number of other Scatters in order to launch the game’s bonus features.
Blueprint Gaming love a bit of bonus action, and it is in the bonus features that Wild Antics really makes its mark. Landing the Aardvark Scatter on reels 1 and 5 plus one of any of the other bonus symbols – the Worker, Soldier, Colonel or Queen – launches a Free Spins round. Featuring either Roaming Wilds, Multiplying Roaming Wilds, Expanding Roaming Wilds or Colossal Roaming Wilds respectively. Naturally, the closer to the Queen we get the bigger the bonus, so no wonder that the Queen bestows the Colossal Roaming Wilds bonus feature. During the Expanding Roaming Wilds and the Colossal Roaming Wilds we are playing on an active 40 pay-lines rather than the regulation 20. So we are going all in, whole hog, or whole ant.
On top of the dedicated and multiple bonus features, Wild Antics can also send us into Jet Pack Antics randomly during any spin. Here we are talking Aardvark Antics, Frantic Antics, Colossal Antics or Wild Antics, giving us quite a few antics to be excited about and ensuring our own slots antics are frenetic and fresh like the Prince of Bel Air. These Jet Pack Antics will re-trigger at the end of the Free Spins round and can launch another bonus to keep us pepped up like a famous cola.
There is plenty going on in this ultra-wild slot to keep us eager to rummage through the undergrowth like David Attenborough searching for his teeth. It’s frantic, it’s frenetic, it will have you as bug-eyed over the five reels as much as any online slot in recent memory.
