NextGen do it again! The Wild 3 mobile slot is a high-action, high-win game that reminds us why they are one of the best casino gaming software around.
NextGen are great at creating casino games that have wonderful mechanics, but often get overlooked for prettier, jazzier themed slots.
Think Robin Hood Disney in the wild west, except the characters are a smooth Coyote, a crazy Mexican racoon, and the old lawman Bull, living in an old Wild Wild West town, where the vulture undertaker is already taking measurements.
It’s fun, the characters made us smile, and the setting is light and breezy. What’s not to love?
What is a superbet slot? That’s where you pay a little extra to get better features and more wins. But unlike the big bet games from Barcrest, these are actually affordable.
It does mean, however, that the minimum bet of this Wild 3 slot machine increases from 0.10 a spin to 0.20 to have this game set at the highest superbet level.
Which isn’t bad considering Merlin’s Magic Respins superbet options go up to 3.50 a spin.
What do you get for your extra bet? You get 3 wild symbols instead of 1 and an extra click me game. Which may not sound that impressive until you know what the wilds can do.
The Wild 3 is a 10 payline machine that lives or dies on the wild symbols you can catch.
Don’t get us wrong, there’s some great 5 of a kind wins to be had, but it’s the wild symbols that land on reel 3 that will keep you entranced and in the black.
Mostly because the racoon and the coyote wild add lots of extra wilds, and the wild bull give you multipliers on your wild wins; from 2x to 10x. There’s some impressive numbers.
The free spins turn this feature into overdrive as you always have one wild symbol on reel 3 giving you all those extra wilds or multiplier, but you can catch more than one wild and have a whole combo of wilds AND multipliers.
So far there’s been few downsides – even the superbet option is very affordable to pretty much all gamblers.
The problem, we suppose, is that the game is overly reliant on those wild symbols to bring the excitement. So if you go 20 odd spins without catching one, you may start wondering if you’re just flogging a dead horse.
However, be patient and you’ll find that there is gold in this bank, and if nothing else, you can complete simple missions to trigger the occasional daylight robbery that will make it all worthwhile.

Superbet: This is an additional bet you can pay in order to increase both the RTP and the bonus features within the game.
Wild 3 Feature: The wild symbols only show up on reel 3. How many you get depends on which superbet level you play at.
If you land one of the Wild 3 on reel 3, you'll trigger one of the following features:
You can trigger these feature as combinations - so, for example, get all three wild symbols on reel 3 and you'll see a whole load of wild transformations and a multiplier.
Mostly you'll see a combo of the bull and either the racoon or the coyote.
Lock n Load respin: When bonus symbol appears on reels 2 and 4, these reels are held whilst reel 3 is re-spun for a second chance at catching a wild (and triggering the free spins).
Free Games: When 2 bonus symbols appear on reel 2 and 4, and a wild symbol on reel 3, the free spin games are triggered.
The wild will now stay sticky on reel 3, and for 5 spins, that wild feature will come into play on each spin. If any more wilds show up on reel 3, these also become sticky and part of the free spin bonus round.
Missions and Rob the Rich Feature: When you play with one of the two superbet levels active, you'll be given three random missions to accomplish.
These vary but can be anything from getting a big win of over 25x your bet, to get a low 5 of a kind win, spin 100 spins, trigger the free spins, trigger the lock n load re-spin etc...
Once you've completed these three missions, you'll get the Rob The Rich feature where you'll pick from money bags and win instant cash prizes. These can vary in size from 5x to 100x your bet, and you get several picks.
You'll then get a new set of missions to trigger this click me gain again.
We've always said that NextGen is one of those underrated casino game studios that deserve more attention.
The Wild 3 mobile game is exactly the kind of slot machine we'd point to, to prove our point, with some fun unique features that you'll find nowhere else.
You will need to play this with the max superbet option turned on to get the full benefit of everything this game has to offer; without it, it's a 3-star slot at best.
With lots of wilds, plenty of free spins, and those missions giving an added thrill to every bonus and win, this one come highly recommended.
A fun and interesting Wild West slot game available to play at NextGen casinos.
