Travelling through the Wild Orient mobile slot will lead you down bamboo jungles full of wild animals and dangerous choices.
This is a beautiful Microgaming slot game, full of verdant greens, rich golds, and the full array of animals, from pandas, to tigers, elephants, and baboons.
It’s pretty. And prettier than the Bikini Party slot which has the exact same mechanics, but is full of woman throwing balls around.
And if you decide the wild jungles of Asia aren’t for you, and Bikinis don’t float your boat, you can always head straight to heart of China in full celebration in the Dragon Dance slot.
Hey, Microgaming love to run with good game play mechanics and make copies. It’s their thing.
The main selling point here that after any spin you can individually spin any one reel to get better results. The good news is that with 243 ways to win, it’s easy to tell if you have a chance to create a win.
If you’d rather not have to think about, the more expensive the cost of the reel re-spins, the more likely you are get a win a bigger win.
However, this Wild Orient slot game is a dangerous slot game to play, and easy to get carried away if you start spinning more than one reel at a time. Personally, we like to re-spin only if there’s a chance to get a 4 or 5 of a kind win on the higher paying animal symbols.
And the good thing is, you don’t need any bonus games to keep you occupied, thanks to these re-spins.
You might be tempted to re-spin a reel when you get two scatters, but personally we found them to be rarely worthwhile. Plus the free spins show up rather often in this Microgaming mobile slot, that you don’t need it.
That said, catching 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier usually ends up being quite rewarding, especially as it’s generally easier to re-trigger, meaning a good average is about 20x your bet, but we’ve hit over 100 on a good round.
Plus you get to venture into the dark nighttime forest, with an upbeat jungle beat, that keeps things lively.
The Wild Orient slot game is not one we’d recommend for newcomers to mobile slot machines, as you need to be careful not to overuse the reel re-spin and kill your budget in a few spins.
But, it’s still good fun, especially if you have a little experience and you like to have a little more choice in your gameplay.

Wild Symbol: The Wild Orient slot logo is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except scatter.
The Re-spin Feature: At the end of each spin, you can choose tp re-spin any one reel as many times as you like - though if you don't win a good 4 or 5 of a kind win after a couple of re-spins, it's unlikely to be worthwhile.
You can see the cost of the re-spins at the bottom of the five reels. You don't have to use it, though this Wild Orient video slot is a hell of a lot more fun if you do.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more elephant stone symbols give you 15 free spins with 3x multiplier on any wins. You can generally expect one of these round every 50 to 100 free spins - you can try and pay for it by re-spinning a reel when 2 scatters are on show, but it's expensive and not very reliable.
We still prefer Dragon Dance over the Wild Orient mobile slot, but only because we like the more traditional Asian theme over wild animals.
But that's the nice thing about getting lots of different choices; you can pick the theme and you can pick which reel to spin. It's fun, if a little dangerous.
If you'd rather not have to think too much, but love the theme, check out the Untamed Giant Panda slot from the same slots provider - you still get a little choice with your gamble feature, but it's more traditional in feel.
