On the 9th April 2019 we will be getting a new NetEnt slot Wild World. Will this be something new and exciting or another disappointment?
So far this year we’ve had three NetEnt slot games.
The first, the Turn your Fortune slot was surprisingly good and we had such good fun playing it, but it slipped under the radar for most gamblers.
The second Strolling Staxx game was ok, but nothing that will take the game of the year award.
Last but not least, the dismal Golden Grimoire video slot which was a disappointment to say that least. And while the jury is still out on the Temple of Nudge coming 21st March, NetEntertainment are fast on the release schedule, already announcing April’s new game.
So why are we not more excited?
A new generation of superheroes is upon us! But will these birdies have it in them to destroy the monsters and bring you the loot? Let’s have a good look.
Now if you didn’t manage to catch all the features, that ok. For now, let’s focus on this odd theme, should we?
It’s certainly imaginative. We don’t think we’ve seen such a mix in any other online slots that we’ve seen.
The story is simple enough. You are taken to another world where 3 superheroes are watching the skies for the monster to descend upon them. When they do they have to travel to one of three elemental worlds where the only hope for the bird world is that they come out victorious.
Overall we like the theme. Generally, grid slots tend to be light and funny, because they are perfectly made for mobile. They resemble the mobile game apps we’ve all downloaded with lots of rows of gems exploding into a flurry of light.
And that’s what you get. Except only half the screen is full of gems, the other half you get the 3 birdies in their control panel, looking out for those monsters.
In many ways, it reminded us a little bit of Gemix by Play’n Go, or even Emoji Planet by NetEnt. There’s something bright and breezy about this Wild Worlds slot that tells us that this is aimed at easy playing gamblers.

That’s a whole load of information for one game, so let’s try and figure out what it all means.
Until the 9th April 2019 when we release the Wild World slot review, we won’t be able to say for sure.
What we can say for sure is that Wild World is a 5×5 grid slot with avalanching reels and free spins with multiple worlds and levels where you can upgrade your wins.
That’s the short of it. The long of it is that NetEnt are trying to compete with the likes of Gemix and Jammin’ Jars, popular games that have players coming back for more.
Look at that return to player rate – it’s nicely high, almost the 97% of Starburst slot. And then there’s the max win of 250x your bet.
Which is ridiculously low, but can be won in the base game or the free spins. Mostly because that’s how much you can win in one avalanche, rather than just in the free spins.
So say you play your 8 free spins. But the avalanches give you mini free goes with every win so you’ll feel like you get value for money.
Add all those extra wild features and we could see this being a fun quick win game full features.

The counter side to that is that there are plenty of low win NetEnt games that rarely meet expectation.
So the fear is that this will be all noise, very little real action. It’s ok that it doesn’t have a huge top win, as long as you feel like you might get multiple wins in a row.
Starburst is a good example of a game done right, Golden Grimoire is an example of a bad one. If there’s no excitement and fun, just pretty pictures.
At least here we have some good features to look forward to and lots and lots of wilds.
So while we may not be shouting from the rooftops, we will reserve judgement until the game comes out across NetEnt casinos online officially in April.Start Playing at Casumo »
