Released in time for Halloween, the Pragmatic Play Infective Wild slot game combines Spreading Wilds with Sticky Wild Free Spins, all wrapped up in a spooky theme.
The Infective Wild mobile slot is a high volatility, 5 reels, 5-row machine with 40 paylines featuring Pumpkin Wilds, which infect the Cat And Raven symbols, turning them Wild, Free Spins where you’ll find Sticky Pumpkin Wilds, a 96,09% RTP and a 5,000x bet max win.
Filled with low-paying A – 10 symbols, Gravestones, Boiling Cauldrons, Potions, Ravens and Cats as the higher-paying all set on the dark Halloween background, with Pumpkin Jack joining you to the side of the reels online and on tablets.
It’s a good-looking slot game and joins the other Halloween-style slots from Pragmatic Play, including the popular Wild Walker slot game.
The main feature of this slot game, and the one that gives this video slot its name, is the Infective Wild feature.
During your spin, when you land a glowing Pumpkin Wild symbol, it has the opportunity to pass on its Wild nature by infecting two possible symbols.
Those symbols are the Witches Black Cat and the Raven. When these are touching a Wild symbol horizontally or vertically, they will turn to wilds, with the infection spreading to any other Cat or Raven symbols; those initial symbols are also touching.
It’s a feature which can land you 50x your bet or more base game wins if you’re lucky, but it certainly will help boost your base game bets, which start at 0.40 min bet per spin.
It’s in the free spins bonus where these Wilds add to the overall excitement of the Infective Wild slot machine.
Where this Pragmatic slot adds to the thrills is when you line up 3 scatters across the reels, something which can take a good 200 base game spins to do, so be sure to budget to trigger them.
When you do 8 reels, it will spin, rewarding you with 1, 2 or 3 on each, giving you a minimum of 8 free spins or a maximum of 24 free spins, and you’ll be hoping for more as it’s the addition of Sticky Wilds in the free spins which can help boost your wins.
These sticky wilds, which come with the Infective feature, help to create more wins, especially with the more you land helping to infect more Cats and Ravens, creating more 3, 4, and 5-of-a-kind wins across the 40 paylines.
It’s where you find the most thrills and the biggest wins of the slot.

Infective Wild: The glowing pumpkin is the Wild symbol appearing on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4 only. When one lands and is next to a Cat or a Raven symbol, it will turn that symbol wild. If any of the Cat or Raven symbols are touching others horizontall or vertically, they will also be infected and turn wild.
Free Spins: A scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 rewards you with the free spins bonus. Before the bonus round starts, eight reels will spin, rewarding you with 1, 2 or 3 free spins each, adding up to give you the total number. During the free spins, any Pumpkin Wild symbols that land remain on the reels for the duration.
Buy Bonus: For 100x your current bet level, you can buy the free spins bonus round with a random number of free spins rewarded.
The Infective Wild slot on mobile comes with great graphics, animations and sounds, which will entice you to take a few spins. A few spins, which can be between the 0.40 minimum bet and 200 maximum bet.
When you do, you'll find a high variance slot which has a mix of rewards with a 1 in 4 hit in the base game and a free spins bonus which lands within 200 base game spins or so.
It's the Infective Wild feature that will grab you the game's biggest wins in the base game, especially in the free spins bonus where the Pumpkin Wilds do come sticky, helping to create more winning paylines.
Overall, this is a high volatility slot, so you will need patience and a decent budget to trigger the main feature, but it does provide some good spooky thrills even if the 5,000x bet max win feels a little out of reach at times.
Take it for a spin at one of our top Pragmatic casinos, where you'll find this slot among many other Halloween-themed slot games.
