Wild Antics

Wild Antics Slot Review

The ants are coming marching win by win, hurrah, hurrah! Besides the clever pun in the title, this highly entertaining slot will make you feel like you are in Honey I Shrunk the Kids, as you enter the world of ants and critters alike. The Aardvark is out to get revenge on these quirky and witty ants who want to take his cash to give to you. I'm no Paul Rudd, but I would have made a fANTastic Antman.

Gameplay

Wild Antics is a 5x3 reel, 20 payline video slot powered by BLUEPRINT software. Symbols include Royal Card Suits (10-A), Snails, Ladybugs, Caterpillars, and the super-stacked Game Logo Symbol. Special Symbols include the Daisy Wild, the Aardvark Bonus Scatter that triggers 1 of 4 Bonus Features if landed with the Worker Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol, Soldier Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol, Colonel Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol, or Queen Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol. There is also a random Jet Pack Antics Bonus Feature. More detail will be given in the Features section.

As far as controls go, you will find Increase/Decrease Bet buttons at the left of the reels, below is the Menu icon expanding to Paytable, Full Game Description, Volume Control, Home, and HD buttons. At the right of the reels, you have your Spin and Autoplay buttons.

Features and Unique Features

The features in Wild Antics include the Daisy Wild, the Aardvark Bonus Scatter that triggers 1 of 4 Bonus Features if landed with the Worker Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol, Soldier Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol, Colonel Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol, or Queen Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol. There is also a random Jet Pack Antics Bonus Feature.

During any spin, the unique Jet Pack Antics Bonus Feature can be triggered at random, awarding 1 of the following 5 modifiers:

Wild Antics: the Aardvark will chase an Ant and catch it in the centre of the reels. The Ant then drops an anvil onto the Aardvark's head, transforming symbols into Wilds.

Aardvark Antics: an Ant will jump from reel to reel with the Aardvark's trunk trying to turn a reel Wild. If the Aardvark sucks hard enough, the reel is turned Wild. If the Ant throws a stone into the Aardvark's trunk, the reel isn't turned Wild.

Frantic Antics: an Ant will blow his whistle, with Ants appearing next to each reel symbol, jumbling them to create a winning spin. If the Ant blows his whistle again, the Ants will jumble the symbols again to create another win. This continues until the Aardvark appears.

Colossal Antics: a colony of Ants carry Colossal Wilds and place them on the reels.

Free Spins Bonuses: the Flying Ants can award any of the Free Spins Bonuses as well.

The Daisy Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Aardvark Bonus Scatter, to form potential winning combinations.

Land 2 Aardvark Bonus Scatters and 1 Special Symbol to trigger 1 of 4 unique Bonus Features:

Worker Ant Free Spins Bonus: land 2 Aardvark Bonus Scatters on reels 1 and 3, and the Worker Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol on reel 5 where a special Wild is active on all 5 reels. They act standard Wilds when they land, but they will roam around the reels to a new position on every subsequent spin.

Soldier Ant Free Spins Bonus: land 2 Aardvark Bonus Scatters on reels 1 and 3, and the Soldier Ant Free Spins Bonus Symbol on reel 5. This Bonus is the same as the Worker Ant Bonus, but if 2 roaming Wilds collide with each other, they will award a multiplier between 2x and 5x.

Colonel Ant Free Spins Bonus: land 2 Aardvark Scatters on reels 1 and 3, and the Colonel Ant Free Spins Symbol on reel 5. This Bonus is the same as the Soldier Ant Free Spins Bonus but takes place on a 5x4 40 payline grid.

Queen Ant Free Spins Bonus: land 2 Aardvark Scatters on reels 1 and 3, and the Queen Ant Free Spins symbol on reel 5. This Bonus takes place on a 5x4 40 payline grid with a special oversized Wild symbol that roams around the reels during each spin. If a unique Queen Symbol lands, it causes the special Wild symbol to expand to cover additional reel positions up to 4x4 in size.

A Bonus can be retriggered after the Bonus has been played out. Once any bonus is complete, an Ant may pop up from the Anthill and blow his whistle, causing the Jet Pack Ants to fly on screen. You will then be prompted to select one of the Jet Pack Ants to reveal a 2nd bonus. This could be the same Bonus that has just been played or 1 of the other 3 Bonuses.

Performance

Wild Antics is a wild slot with enough features to create a towering anthill. Packed with bonuses and free spins, Wild Antics will have you soldiering on to some sweet wins. The design, animation, and graphics are fantastic. The volatility is medium, and RTP is at 95.5%.

Max Win

The max coin win is 10000x your stake.

Conclusion

If you were a fan of the Pixar movie ‘Ants’, then you will be more than pleased with Wild Antics in terms of the visuals. But, what makes this slot even better is the huge variety of unique features and enjoyable gameplay with even nicer wins to win. I think I may have ants in my pants after playing this slot; I just can't get enough of it.
