Welcome to the Wild Frames slot machine, full of style, elegance and avalanching reels that beg to be full of wilds.
This is a 7×7 cascading grid slot machine by Play’n GO with cluster pays. When 5 or more symbols touch they create a win, and then explode magnificently, giving you more symbols falling from above and a second chance at another win.
This, by itself, is wonderful to watch, especially with those classic slot symbols on show: the Lucky 7, the golden bell, a diamond, a star and then the card suits standing as low paying symbols.
In many ways, this Wild Frames slot feels like something you could have found in the reception desk of the Ritz hotel somewhere in the 1920s and 30s. There’s a touch of glamour here that you might not find in others such as the Mahjong 88 slot or even the Queen’s Day Tilt.
Randomly, you may get anything from 2 to 6 random wild symbols on the screen, usually creating a win. The spaces left behind on those wilds are called ‘frames’.
If another wild lands on the frame, the multiplier will increase on that wild. This can continue until you get more and more wilds and more avalanches.
There’s not a whole load of symbols on this paytable, so you get enough wins to feel like the game is flowing. But then you might notice that unless you get clusters of 10 or more symbols, the wins are not all that impressive.
But that’s ok. You have a couple of secret weapons in this Wild Frames online slot, and it’s not the wild symbols.
Every time you win with 20 symbols, and that’s collected with every little win and avalanche, not always in one win gives you a special feature.
20 symbols collected transform all high paying symbols into one, 40 will add 3 to 6 extra wilds, 60 charges will remove all low paying symbols and then on 80 spins you can get a whole load of wild symbols and wild frames added to the reels.
It all sounds exciting, but to be honest, the wilds just don’t seem to show up half enough times for us to feel that excitement. But that’s ok as long as you remember that this is a very volatile game, so getting those multipliers won’t come easy.

Cluster Pays: Any cluster of symbols touching horizontally or vertically will create a win.
The Wild: The star-studded W is the wild and will remove any other symbol to help increase the size of a cluster win. You can get anything from 2 to 6 extra wilds randomly added to the screen.
Wild Frames: When a wild lands on this 7x7 grid slot, it leaves behind a frame in that position.
During the next avalanche if another wild lands in that frame, you'll get a multiplier. Each time this occurs the multiplier increases until no more avalanches occur.
Charge Meter: Every time you get a win, it charges the charge meter by the number of symbols. So a 6 symbol win charges the meter by 6. For every 20 charges you get, it will trigger a special feature.
The features will be activated once there are no more wins on the grid.
We are not sure we really got into the rhythm of this Wild Frames slot game. Maybe we got really unlucky but those frames seemed so elusive as to make us wonder if they really exist.
And they do. We did finally get a couple here and there. But this high volatility slot is certainly for those with more patience than we were willing to give.
Still, you can't deny that the numbers here are good enough to make this a decent 3-star slot review.
We're talking about a decent top win of 7,000x your bet a high RTP of 96.5% and a low minimum bet of 0.20.
This is a slow burner. You may get nothing for 100 spins, and then you get 80 symbol wins in a huge avalanche of disappearing symbols. Personally we prefer the Play'n GO Honey Rush slot, but we can see why some may prefer the glitz and glamour of this Wild Frames game.
