You can’t possibly have a game with the title of Extra Wild without including a wild icon, right? Well, fortunately, Merkur has made sure to add one to the slot. This works as the main feature of the game, and does bring a certain small level of additional entertainment to the screen. The wild is present in the shape of the vault door. As a wild, it will substitute for all other symbols on the reels, assisting you in forming winning combinations. Further to this, it also gives you a secondary function at the same time. Whenever it participates in a win, it will also multiply your pay out by the corresponding multiplier it shows. This can go up to a maximum amount of times seven.
You will also be able to see that the diamond icon has its own additional special function as well. This one is able to provide a pay out to you from any direction. So, it doesn’t have to start from the very leftmost reel. For example, you could bring four diamond symbols into view on a winning bet line from the very rightmost reel onwards. Or you could spin three into position across the central three reels. In any event, this one will still provide a pay out.
Finally, players will also have the opportunity to play a gamble round in Extra Wild. This will trigger itself whenever you form a win, and it gives you two different side games to choose from. The first is a Ladder Gamble round, which provides a ladder with several step. Upon each of these steps, you’ll see different values. Your goal is to try and climb the ladder and increase your winnings as much as possible. Keep in mind that you may also fall down and end up seeing your winnings lower. The other side game is the Card Gamble. This presents you with a face down playing card that you need to guess the colour of – red or black. Getting this colour correct will see a double multiplier apply itself to your winnings from the triggering round.
