On an Island untouched by men lies the stupidest bird on earth. Unfortunately, this Wild Dodo slot lives up to it’s namesake.
Side City Studios have gone a little creative and decided that it wasn’t enough to do a tropical themed slot game.
Which certainly makes this 20 payline Wild Dodo mobile slot stand out, with exotic animals, fish and Ace to J letters covering some very pretty reels.
You even have a purple Dodo companion on the side of the five reels, livening things up, a little like in Rabcat’s Gnome Wood.
On paper, everything about this Wild Dodo slot should work.
Just look at the fact that whenever you get a wild on the centre reel, you get 3 free re-spins with an expanded reels in the middle.
Or how three scatters gives you the chance to play anything from 5 to 20 free spins. Mostly you get a 2x multiplier, but we got the 20 free spins which had a 3x multiplier.
And you know what? We re-triggered the Wild Dodo bonus games, playing an amazing 40 free spins.
It was thrilling!
Once we got over our initial shock, we realise that much like the bird, we were being lulled into a false sense of security before being stripped of all our cash feathers.
Because, unfortunately, even after playing 40 spins at a 3x multiplier we only won 60x our bet. That’s pretty poor when you think that Vampires slot by Merkur gave us over 1,000 times our bet with no multipliers.
The re-spins are no better, giving you maybe 10x your bet on a good round.
That’s the problem with pretty slot machines – sometimes they can blind you into thinking they are more fun than they actually are.
Not that Wild Dodo casino slot is unplayable. Just that at the top of it’s game, you’re more likely to go extinct rather than survive to play another day.
As far as exotic mobile slot machines go, even Aloha Cluster Pays by NetEnt has more consistent wins than this.

Wilds: The Dodo is wild appears on all reels, replacing symbols in paylines to create wins.
Wild Dodo Re-spin: When a wild shows up on reel 3, it will expand to cover the whole reel.
You'll then get 3 free spins on the reels, with the expanded wild held in place.
Though a much better game to make use of this feature is Enchanted Meadow by Play'n GO.
Dodo's Nest Free Games: Get 3 Dodo nest scatter symbols anywhere on screen and you'll trigger a mini-game.
Here you get to pick from a whole load of eggs, until you match 3 identical prizes. You can win:
You can re-trigger the free spins during the bonus games.
Because we like all the features that this mobile Wild Dodo slot brings, we probably liked it more than we should.
But, just because you put the right ingredients together in a bowl, doesn't always mean you get a good cake.
It's not that you can't win big, it's just that winning big is such a distant affair, you might as well hope to see a real life Dodo.
Personally, if you want to play Side City Games, we'd rather recommend the Fiesta Cubana slot instead.
