A cross between the Tasmanian Devil and Wile E. Coyote, this wild cat is not the prettiest, but under his angry demeanour hides a prosperous (and free spinning) heart.
Fresh off the heels of the wonderful Easy Slider, we were at first, fairly disappointed with Wildcat Canyon. Back to the same and boring old generic sounds that litter so many NextGen slots, this wildcat was not popping out of our screen. In fact, the cartoonish graphics take away the modern edge of the slot, making it feel a little dated beyond its time. It’s like watching a terrible 80’s cartoon on a Saturday morning, but without the nostalgia of childhood.
The free spins is where Wildcat Canyon comes alive and where we started to get as bold as that snake grabbing, goat riding wildcat. Here you’ll get to pick a number of free spins with a set multiplier. We are, by nature, lover of mobile slots that give us the chance of bigger payouts. We like to win, but mostly we like to win big. So we decided that 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier was our gal.
And we choose well. Because within the free spins there is an excellent ‘respin’ feature, meaning that out of 5 free spins you actually get more like 8 free spins. And with a 10x multiplier we actually got a very, very decent 50x our bet back.
At this point we started looking at the numbers, and the maximum win on this slot is an impressive 100,000 in cash. Not bad for a slot that, unlike the slot games that have higher than usual in-game jackpots, actually gives you decent smaller wins in the base game to top up your wallet and elongate your game play.
So Wildcat Canyon mobile slot may not look or sound the nicest, but the numbers behind it are certainly enticing enough to hook us in for a few spins down that sandy canyon.

Wilds: It won't come as a huge surprise or shock, to find that the wild symbol on this slot is the Wildcat. Well, you're not going to create a game called Wildcat and not use the titular character for a term that is literally on its business card, right? The wildcat replaces all symbols on the reels except scatter.
Scatters & Free Spins: 3 or more pawprints opens up the free spins bonus round. Here you'll get to choose either 15, 10 or 5 free spins with a respective multiplier of 3x, 5x or 10x. You can re-trigger the free spins, at which point you'll be taken back to the free spin selection screen to repick your number of free spins and multipliers.
It hits frequently enough to make a difference, though you would have hoped for more, and the selection is completely up to your daredevil heart to decide.
Wildcat Respins: Only occuring during the free spins round, take into consideration that when you select the number of free spins, you'll probably get a few more on top. This is because whenever the wild cat symbol appears on the reels, this reel will remain sticky and you'll get an additional respin of all the other reels. So essentially an extra spin.
When we picked 5 free spins we actually got 8 and when we choose 10 free spins we actually played 16. So bear that in mind and choose accordingly.
We struggled with the rating for Wildcat Canyon mobile slot. We wanted to give it 4 stars, but in our hearts of hearts, we knew the graphics and sounds would prevent this slot from truly becoming a favourite for our tablet or iPad casinos.
However as an Android smartphone slot or an iPhone slot, we think there is a place for a slot with some high hitting figures and a great free spins feature. It will certainly keep us entertained as we travel and the graphic quality actually means that it loads fast and plays very well on the smaller screen.Play Now at Vera & John »
