Head back to the 1920s where the Great Gatsby… wait no… The Great Wild mobile slot opens it’s door the party of a lifetime. Or at least, good enough for a night.
With popping champagne, pearl necklaces floating in martinis, expensive emerald rings and ruby necklaces, this Great Wild slot screams luxury and excess.
You enter a lavish art deco party, where flapper girls bring you drinks and expensive gifts. Whether you get to leave with these gems will depend on your mysterious host, the Mr Great, who only shows up from time to time.
This is the theme that The Great Pigsby slot tries to do, but only with half the class.
Mr Great is the stacked wild symbol and he shows up stacked on reel 3 only. This is important because he can show up partially, or fully land to cover the whole reel.
When he does, the party really gets started. Because he will raise his glass and attract to him a whole host of pretty flapper girls, who are also wild symbols. Up to 9 may show up, and regardless of who he’s surrounded himself with, it generally leads to a decent win of around 20x to 50x your bet.
The max win here is about 1,100x your bet, so that’s not a bad amount for a low to mid variance game.
Not only does Mr Great make an appearance, but get the wheel of bonus symbol and you’ll get to play a mini-game where you get the chance to spin three wheels.
Mostly you get maybe 5x your bet. Sometimes you get 10x or 30x your bet. And if you are really really lucky you will win 1,000x your bet, which is when your heart will start pumping.
The last bonus feature is fun, where you collect classic cars for small rewards in a quick re-spin game, but it’s there to keep you going rather than to bring any real thrills.
Which reflects the fact that The Great Wild slot only has an RTP of 94.31% which is very low but not unusual for a Cayetano game – think the Reels of Egypt slot or the Solar Snap game. So we can’t recommend it wholeheartedly, but it’s fun enough that if your path crosses it, it’s good for a quickie.

Wild: The flapper girls are the wild symbol and replace any other symbols on the reels to create a win.
Grand Wheel: When the Grand Wheel symbol lands on the hot spot in the middle of reel 3, you trigger a simple click me game. You have three wheels, each with a progressively bigger jackpot.
In the first wheel, you can win around 3x to 9x your bet, the middle reel wins you around 10x to 25x your bet, and the inner reel has prizes ranging from 30x to 1,000x your bet.
Classic Cars Collection Bonus: 3 or more classic car symbols will lock those symbols onto the reel and activate a bonus where you spin to collect as many classic cars as possible. You get a +1 spin for each car than lands, and each car pays out an x1 your bet. These symbols can lock for 1 spin up to 5 spins, paying out for each re-spin or until you have no spins left.
Wild Flapper Party: When the stacked wild symbol of Mr Great covers the whole of 3rd reel he will randomly attract up to 9 flappers wild symbol anywhere on the other reels for amazing wins.
Lucky Nudges: Sometimes the great middle reels nudges by 1 position up or down to create a winning combination.
It's a shame that The Great Wild slot has a low RTP of 94.31%. If it paid just a little more often, closer to 96%, this would be a 4-star video slot review.
Reason being, the elements are good: the theme is beautiful, you get stacked wilds, two bonus features, and a top win of 1,100 times your bet.
We had a good time playing on this Cayetano Gaming machine, but as usual, the paytable lets it down just enough that this is a 'sure, you can try it if you bored' rather than a 'must-play'.
Problem is, The Grand slot by Quickspin does an equally good art deco theme, but with a bigger payoff. So why wouldn't you play on that instead?
