Welcome to Whittlewood Forest where a mage seeks to turn everything into gold in this Wild Tome of the Woods slot.
Quickspin tells us that this Wild Tome of the Woods mobile slot is set somewhere in the former medieval hunting ground in Northamptonshire, where a reclusive wizard is attempting to turn everything into gold.
You don’t see this wizard, but you do see his magical book, hence the name ‘The Wild Tome slot”. Because this is all about that one symbol, which brings out the one feature in this 6 reel slot machine by Quickspin Gaming.
You have 3 high paying symbols in the half frog/half newt Crikey, the fox Sylvester the 3rd, and Eleanor the posh owl from Oxford. You then get just three low paying symbols in the form of three potions: red, yellow and green.
It’s important that you only have a total of 6 symbols in these reels, and mostly they all come stacked. Because you have 6 reels and 4 rows of symbols, over just 24 paylines.
And if you get anything less than a 4 of a kind win, you rarely even get your bet back. This paytable is not high paying. A 6 of a kind win with Eleanor, our snobby owl friend, only pays 16 times your bet.
You do the math, and the wins here are low. But with so few symbols, the chances of getting multiple wins on multiple paylines increase dramatically, so you don’t realise the low paytable, because the wins come in these big clusters of symbols.
Well, maybe not everything to gold. But when a Wild Tome shows up on any of the 6 reels, it will pick one symbol on the board to turn to gold – or to turn wild.
You could then have another mystery tome show up, and turn another symbol into wild, and so on, potentially turning the whole screen full of wilds and give you the max win of 1,000 times your bet!
This Wild Tome slot online looks beautiful, and with one simple feature, is actually surprisingly good fun, especially as this is a low variance game with quick wins, often.
Getting that max win probably isn’t easy, but we’ve hit 50x and 80x our bet to know that those slightly bigger wins are here. This Wild Tome game reminded us a little bit of the old Firestorm slot or even the Durian Dynamite review – proving you don’t need to be complicated to be good. A good addition to the Quickspin slots collection.

Wild Tome Transformation: When a Wild Tome symbol shows up on the screen, it will flip its pages and show one symbol. That symbol will now transform into a golden wild symbol everywhere across the reels. Those wilds may also randomly show up another wild tome, which will choose another symbol to turn wild. This can continue until all symbols turn wild.
We didn't think that this Wild Tome of the Woods slot on mobile would have enough to keep us playing, but thanks to a lovely atmosphere and plenty of charm, we really did.
Granted, fans of video slots with bonus games won't love it, because you only get one feature and no free spins, no re-spins nothing. If that's what you like, maybe go read our Hall of the Mountain King slot review instead.
But you might be pleasantly surprised if you stick around these pretty woods and find that everything you touch turns to gold.
Wild Tome of the Woods is a 6 reel 4-row slot game with 26 paylines and a wild transformation feature which randomly turns symbols on the reels into wild symbols.
