The African wild is calling where magnificent creatures roam the vast plain to give you some seriously untamed wins in this Wild Run slot.
NextGen have, softly and quietly, become very good at creating one particular kind of video slot.
Well, guess what? This Wild Run video slot stays true to that trend.
We always wonder why NextGen slot machines don’t get the recognition they deserve by players worldwide.
Because only devoted slot fans like us find them and play them, and that’s because most people tend to get captivated by pretty slots like Full Moon Romance.
These distract you with nice graphics, but don’t give you the kind of fun maths that keeps you engaged with the game.
Look at this Wild Run mobile slot – every time you win in this 243 ways to win game, you get extra wilds with multipliers.
Get 2 wins in a row and you get extra wilds with 3x multipliers. Get 3 wins in a row and you’ll trigger unlimited free spins with wilds that come with 5x multipliers.
Of course, the Wild Run free spins aren’t technically unlimited. After any 4 non-winning spins, you will go back to your usual base game play.
Generally you get anything from 8 to 12 free spins by the time all those wilds and multipliers have done trampling through these 5 reels.
It might not be the most imaginative of game themes, but do we really care when the build up to big wins is so enticingly exciting.
Much like NextGen Cash Stampede, this Wild Run casino slot is for connoisseurs of great mobile phone games that put substance over style.

Wild: The Lion is wild and substitutes for all symbols. However, it only appears once you've triggered the Wild Run On A Roll bonus feature.
On-A-Roll: On the left hand side of the screen you notice a meter. When you get one win, using any symbol, that meter will increase to level 2.
You'll then get extra wild symbols added to reels 1 and 5, which come with a 2x multiplier when used in a win.
Get a further win, and you'll get to level 3, where you'll get wilds on all reels except 3, and get a 3x multiplier on any win using a wild.
Any non-winning spin returns you to the previous level. You will pay for spins whilst on level 1, 2, or 3.
Granted, not as good as the free re-spins of the Valley of the Gods slot, but far easier to catch multipliers.
Level 4 or the Free Spin Bonus Game: Get 4 wins in a row, and you'll trigger the Wild Run free games.
Technically, these can go on forever, but in reality they end after any 4 non-winning spins.
The good news is that this time you get wilds on every single reel on screen, and they add a 5x multiplier to any win.
Once you finish the free spins, you'll go back to level 1 and start again.
You reach the free spins bonus game remarkably often - maybe every 30 to 50 spins at the most.
NextGen don't always hit every note with all their mobile casino games, and when their themes are a little generic (like in the Golden Mane slot), we tend to take away a few stars.
And whilst this Wild Run slot on mobile deserves a little of that, it's rescued from those mediocre graphical waters by some unique fast paced fun mechanics.
With the potential for huge wins, thanks to that unique On-A-Roll bonus feature and those multiplying wilds, this is a roaring good time.
Fans of this NextGen title should also check out Wolfpack Pays also by NextGen, which has similar mechanics.
