Recently released by Quickspin, The Wild Chase is a new addition to their ever growing collection of graphically vibrant, online slots. This slot has an RTP of 96,77%, and while the base game symbol values are low, they are balanced out by features such as continuous Re-spins, Multiplier Wilds and Free Spins. These features improve wins by increasing win frequency and win Multipliers. Read on to find out what sets this game apart from other slots.
New slot by Quickspin
Join a team of thieves as they make their getaway in The Wild Chase, a 3-row, 5-reel, 25-fixed payline online slot. Gameplay is set against a coastal region viewed from a driver’s seat. The symbols reflect luxury items and danger loving thieves on the run from the law. The overall theme of the game is reminiscent of “Miami Vice” wherein cars racing along at breakneck speeds and the thrill of planning and executing a heist are the casual norm. The background music is low key electric guitar and a bit anticlimactic considering that this is supposed to be a “Wild Chase.”
The Wild Chase offers 13 cash bet options within a moderate range of 25p-£100 at Mr Green. The simple, yet effective game design we’ve come to expect from Quickspin’s online slot games makes cash flow easy to track during gameplay. Look along the bottom of the screen to view the Cash Balance, Total Cash Bet, and Wins. Payouts are left to right only. So, for a win, simply spin 3+ matching symbols starting from reel 1.
The Wild Chase features 11 symbols. There are 2 special symbols: the free spins bonus symbol (involved in the free spins bonus feature) and the Multiplier Wild symbol. There are 9 regular symbols. 4 of them are Thieves (Red, Green, Blue, Purple) and 5 of them are luxury symbols: a Bag of Diamonds, Car Key, Gold Watch, Diamond Ring, and Cash.
The regular symbol values change as the cash bet is increased or decreased, so be sure to check the paytable before hitting the Spin button. For example, the symbol with the highest value (Red Thief) has a symbol value of (0.50, 0.30, 0.15) for a cash bet of 25p and a symbol value of (200, 120, 60) for a cash bet of £100. If you are thinking those values seem pretty low, with a max win of 2x the base bet, you would be right. However, read on to see how the game offsets the low regular symbol win values with its bonus features.
The Wild Chase special features
There are 5 auto play options with The Wild Chase that allow for 10-1.000 consecutive spins. Advanced auto play gives players further control of gameplay by allowing a loss limit and/or a single win limit to be set. Simply press the Stop button to end auto play.
Game settings in the upper right corner of the screen allow players to switch the sound on and off. Next to the sound, there is a rewind button that gives players the option to “Replay” an exciting moment of gameplay. It’s a nice, recurring feature in Quickspin online slots that allows players to relive wins. Lower left of the screen, players can set the spacebar to spin as well as view the paytable and game rules via the “i” button.
The Wild Chase bonus features
Re-spin Feature: This feature is triggered by any win. The winning symbols will remain fixed in position while continuous Re-spins are awarded until no more winning combos occur. This gives the slot game some potential to award greater wins than the base slot game.
Multiplier Wild Feature: Multiplier Wild symbols can stand in for any other symbol except the Free Spin Bonus symbol. If a winning combo has a Multiplier Wild symbol, then a Multiplier is awarded to all wins in that same round. The more Wilds there are, the higher the Multiplier will be. For example, 1 Wild will give all wins a 2x Multiplier, 2 Wilds give a 3x multiplier, 3 Wilds give a 4x Multiplier, and 4+ Wilds give a 5x Multiplier.
Free Spins Bonus: Collect 3+ Free Spin Bonus symbols to win 10 Free Spins. Each Free Spin will have at least 1 Wild symbol which increases the likelihood of getting winning combinations with this slot.

Join the chase, or play it safe?
Arguably, The Wild Chase’s RTP is competitive. Just keep in mind that while the bonus features can increase the win Multipliers, it is most likely that players will more frequently win smaller amounts with the occasional larger win over time. The graphics quality is just as good when compared to other Quickspin slots such as Genie’s Touch or Big Bad Wolf, fans of series/movies like “Miami Vice,” “Ocean’s” and “The Fast and The Furious” will enjoy the overall theme.
