Spin for cash while exploring the Wild side of the Orient. Recently released just this past March, 2016 by Microgaming, Wild Orient features 243 ways to win and the promise of a potential 60,000 coin win. This slot is conveniently available for play from any desktop or mobile device (iOS; Android).
Delve Into the Wild Orient
Wild Orient is a 3-row, 5-reel, 243-fixed payline online slot adventure. 243 paylines means 243 ways to win as offered in other online slots by Microgaming such as Immortal Romance or Game of Thrones. The reels are set against a wilderness of bamboo leaves and the symbols reflect various exotic animals of the Orient. Overall, the visual quality is somewhat flat. Other than the slight swaying of symbols on a win, Wild Orient lacks the celebratory animations we’ve come to expect from online video slots. The music is upbeat with plenty of pep to amp up excitement.
Wild Orient allows players to choose a Bet by clicking the Bet box to adjusting the Coin Value and Quantity. There are 7 Coin Values (0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.25, 0.50) and up to 10 coins allowing for an overall Bet range of 0.25- 125 credits per spin at the online casino Mr Green. The slot pays from left to right starting with reel 1, and multiple wins from differing paylines will be added together into a larger lump sum win each spin. Fortunately, the slot auto calculates the Total Credit win by multiplying the Total Coins won by the Coin Value. Easily keep track of the Total Balance, Bets and Total Wins along the bottom of the screen.
Wild Orient features 2 special symbols: the Wild Orient Logo Wild and the Animal Statue Scatter. The Wild only appears on reels 2 & 4 and can replace any except the Scatter, and the Animal Statue Scatter can appear on any reel with only 2+ for a win while 3+trigger the Free Spins Bonus Game.
There are 10 regular symbols featuring wild animals such as an Elephant, Tiger, Panda, Monkey, Crane and 9-Ace. Get 2+ or 3+ matching symbols for a win (depending on which symbol it is) and win up to 160x the Bet. Values for matching symbols change as the Bet is adjusted. For example, the highest paying symbol (Elephant) shows a value of (20.000, 2.000, 200, 20) when the Bet is 125 credits, and shows a value of (40, 4, 0.40, 0.10) when the Bet is 0.25 credits, so check the paytable after selecting a Bet before clicking Spin.
Wild Orient’s Advanced Auto play feature allows players to control the number of spins, seconds between spins/delay, stop if a win reaches a set amount, stop on any win, stop if the Total Balance increases/decreases by a set amount or if a Bonus Feature is triggered. Press Stop to end Auto play manually.
During regular gameplay, click Spin again once the reels start spinning to stop the reels more quickly for added control. Or, set Quick Spin to speed up gameplay overall.
Players have the option to view all values in Credits or Credits and Coins by clicking the Balance box, then Options to choose.
Wild Orient Bonus Features
The Wild Orient free spins Bonus Game is triggered by a spin yielding 3+ Animal Statue Scatters anywhere across the 5 reels. It starts out by awarding 15 Free Spins that automatically triple all Free Spin wins. If 3+ Animal Statues appear during a Free Spin, then more Free Spins are added to those that remain.
Wild Orient features a Re-Spin option for each of the 5 reels. Simply, click the Re-spin button at the bottom of a reel to set it spinning for a certain credit amount that varies with Coin adjustments. The other reels will remain in place. It is possible to Re-spin the same reel several times. This feature is limited to regular gameplay, which means that it is not an option while playing the Free Spins Bonus Game or when Auto play is activated.

Ready for a Wild Orient Adventure?
While the overall graphics are mediocre when compared to other online slots that are richer in detailed animations such as Gonzo’s Quest or Koi Princess, slot enthusiasts will certainly appreciate the added control over gameplay provided by the unique Re-Spin feature used in other Microgaming slots such as Retro Reels, Reel Gems and Retro Reels Diamond Glitz.
