From AvatarUX studios, this WildPops slot introduces you to the WinPop feature where every win will expand the ways to win, and give you multipliers and wilds aplenty.
What is the theme of this Wild Pops mobile slot? Imagine if you were living in a land of Pokemon, but a little more exotic and little more grownup. That’s as close as we can describe it.
There’s a whole load happening in this game, so lets’ start with the basic. Wild Pops starts as a 486 ways to win game which pays when adjacent symbols are next to each other anywhere on the reels.
You start with 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols. Every time you get a win on any on the reels, the reels will increase by win, the winning symbols pop, and you get two or more symbols on that reel. That’s the WinPop feature.
A pop is a win using 1 symbol. So a 3 symbol win, will give you 3 pops. So getting 7 pops isn’t as hard as you might think, and by the time you’ve expanded the reels a couple of times, you might just get a 2x or 3x multiplier helping you make those symbols worthwhile.
Because, if we are honest, the starting paytable is pretty low in this Wild Pops slot. You need those multipliers and somewhere close to over 6,000 ways to win to get anywhere near 100x your bet wins or more.
The good news is that every win, every expanded reel, gives you a free re-spin. So while getting to the top may feel a little long-winded at times, there is a momentum and excitement that is very real and doesn’t cost you a penny to watch or play.
The wilds on every 3 sets of winning symbols help keep that momentum going and closer to that top win.
How you get the top win isn’t easy. First, you have to WinPop all the reels so they are 7 rows high, and whatever multiplier you’ve gotten so far will automatically be increased by 1. Then you get their version of free spins.
You basically get 3 lives. When you lose, it doesn’t reset to the smallest reels, instead, you lose a life. You also don’t lose the multipliers you’ve accumulated.
Then you have to get the highest-paid symbols, which ONLY appears on pop, and rarely at that. And then you have to get enough of them on a high enough multiplier.
In short, this Wild Pop game can afford to give you a huge top win, because it lives on a cumulation of smaller wins and the anticipation of watching those rows increase and decrease. Perfect for those who love Megaways slot machine but want to try something a little bit different.

Wild: The bomb is the wild symbol it will replace all other symbols on the reels.
Symbol Pays Adjacent: As long as you get 3 or more symbols adjacent to each other on any of the 5 reels. So you'll get a win if you get symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3, or 2, 3 and 4 or 3, 4 and 5.
PopWins: Each time you get a win, the symbols will Pop and is replaced by 2 symbols, increasing the reel height. This is repeated as long as there are more wins or you reach 7 symbols column high on every single reel.
Super High Symbol: Super High-value symbols (the lion now glowing blue) is worth 30x your bet instead of 5x your bet on a 5 of a kind. It only appears from PopWins, never on just a base game win.
Random Wilds: Win 3 times in a row to trigger 2 random wilds. This feature can be repeated by getting 6 and 9 wins etc...
Bonus Mode: When the Wild Pops slot game is expanded to 7 columns high, you get 3 extra lives. Instead of the game resetting on a non-win to a 486 ways to slot, you get 3 times to 'lose' without losing the 7 columns or any multipliers.
When you've opened up the game fully to have 5 reels, all with 7 rows of symbols, you will open up a slot with 33,614 win ways.
Multiplier: You get a +1 multiplier for every 7th pop symbol win. Fully unlocking the game (all reels are 7 symbols high) also increases the multiplier by 1.
It took a while for us to warm up to the Wild Pops slot, mostly because it takes a while to unlock the full potential of this real money game.
And yet, as those wheels burn up in fiery flames and get bigger and bigger, you end up falling in love with these beautiful far east fantasy characters, especially after you get re-spin after re-spin.
Certainly a fun twist on the expanded reel concept, beautifully animated, and very engaging.
Getting that top win of 10,000x your bet or more is nothing short of winning the jackpot in this volatile slot game, so it does require a player who knows when to walk away, both on a big win or on too many loses in a row.
