NOTE: This Yggdrasil slot game is part of the Leo Vegas Originals collection, which it’s been created exclusively for Leo Vegas casino.
Head to the mountains of Tibet where this Wild Mantra mobile slot promises you rewards that transcend your wallet.
And we say “transcend” in a good. Because you will have fun here and you’ll certainly walk away a little bit wiser about slot machines, but not necessarily all that richer. So weary traveller beware, but don’t let us stop you on your journey just yet.
This Wild Mantra slot has 25 paylines and only 8 paying symbols, which is great because over 4 rows the fewer symbols you have, the more likely you are to get a win.
But the paytable isn’t great, especially when you consider that you need more than one five of a kind win to get anything over 50x your bet.
When we first opened up this Wild Mantra slot online, we were blown away with the usual great Yggdrasil game graphics and sounds. You genuinely feel at the top of a mountain, about to head to an ancient temple full of the richness of the soul.
Then, when we say that you got sticky wilds during the free spins, we got excited. We immediately thought of the Cazino Zeppelin slot or Cazino Cosmos game, both of which are some of Yggdrasil’s most volatile games.
And that was our problem. We came into this game expecting high variance mechanics, but this journey into the Tibetan Mountains isn’t that at all. In fact, with small quick wins, it’s more of a tourist attraction that anyone can wander up to and play.
The thing is, whilst it is an easy win slot, it still is very reliant on those wilds to give you multiple wins to get you anything close to the 5x to 10x your bet wins that you need to keep you going.
Which is fine, because you get lots of these in the base game as wilds generally some stacked 4 high. They also give you a re-spin of the reels, though this generally, rarely, lead to much except a little added drama in the base game.
The Wild Mantra slot free spins are fun to watch, even if you don’t get that same thrill as you would with the sticky wins in the Dead or Alive slot game where a 5 of a kind win means something.
All in all, a pretty good Leo Vegas originals slot, though we probably prefer the inventiveness of the Pirates Smuggler’s Paradise slot for that little extra added thrill.

Stacked Wild Respin: The golden wild symbol comes stacked four high, and just one landing on the reels triggers a respin. The wilds stay in place and you keep getting re-spins for the more wilds you find. If you do find a wild on a respin, all previously landed wilds nudge by 1 position to add more wilds.
Wilds substitute for all other symbols on the reel to create a win.
Free Spins: Get 3, 4 or 5 red free spin symbols and you'll get 10 free spins and cash wins. Any reels that contain a wild when triggering the free spins are carried over into the bonus games. Additionally, 1 reel is always guaranteed to have a wild at the top.
All wilds stay sticky throughout the duration of the spins, and if you manage to fill a reel with wilds you get 1 extra Wild Mantra free spin.
Wild Mantra is a video slot with 5x4 reels and 25 fixed paylines that spin from left to right, with 8 paying symbols, a stacked wild that causes re-spin and a scatter symbol that gives you 10 free spins with sticky wilds.
In short, that's all you need to know to appreciate this balanced game that is trying to please all the people all the time.
Which is also part of its downfall. The sticky wins in the free spins are not quite exciting enough, but the wild re-spins in the base game keep you going long enough to want to see if you could be proven wrong.
