Who doesn’t want to get their hands on the contents of a vault, in which lie sure-fire riches? That’s the dream that Betdigital dangles with its Wilds Deluxe Slot, a five reel, 10 payline game that Pays All Ways. The Wilds of the slot’s title come in the shape of bank Vaults, appearing on reel 3. With glitzy, sparkling jewels and items of finery as this game’s symbols, it’s not just the payouts that have the deluxe edge.
“10 paylines?” your eyes may bulge. But fear not. 10 paylines have been put to good use in many an online slot before. A perfect example is NetEnt’s Starburst, a pioneer among the stars in a 10 payline slot that Pays Both Ways. But Wilds Deluxe trumps Starburst with its Pays All Ways system. This means that any combo of three matching symbols across a winning payline will deliver prizes, be they left-to-right, right-to-left or middle three reel combinations. All game symbols in Wilds Deluxe appear stacked, too, meaning that three symbol combos and more in any of these winning combinations are very real possibilities indeed.
And so to the symbols themselves. In ascending order we hunt for a gold Watch, Necklace, stacks of Coins, Gold Bars, Jewellery Box, Sapphires, Rubies and Diamonds, which pay out between x1 (three Gold Watches) to x50 (five Diamonds). With all symbols featuring as stacked symbols landing even simple symbol combinations keeps our game-play ticking over smoothly. Betdigital’s unfussy total bet mechanism also means we don’t have to worry about coins versus bets and can just focus on a simple bet and payout structure.
Landing Vault Wilds on reel 3 are our only shots at bonus features in the Wilds Deluxe slot, but this doesn’t mean that we can’t earn sizeable payouts. Not only do the Vault Wilds substitute for all game symbols to complete winning combos, but they also contain hidden multipliers. These multipliers range from between x1-x7, and can seriously boost a simple combo win to epic proportions. Landing x7 Multiplier Wilds in combos of high-paying diamonds will see us on our ways to the kinds of deluxe wins promised by the title. Wilds Deluxe can also randomly shake three stacked Vaults onto reel 3, potentially quaking multiple wins from out of the blue. Even if the Vaults we land don’t complete winning combos, they still pay out x1 our bet per Vault.
Many current online slots boast bonus games and randomly-triggered features galore. Not so with Wilds Deluxe, but this game’s simplicity is also its strength. The Pays All Ways system and stacked symbols make for winning combos that would be losers in most online slots, while the Vault Multipliers that earn payouts that match our bets even if they don’t complete winning payline combinations can help our payouts go from the decent to the extraordinary. Deluxe by name, Deluxe by nature.
