The Wild Orient online pokie from Microgaming first arrived in Australian online casinos in March 2016. This game has a Wildlife/Asian/Jungle/Safari theme with 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and the top prize up for grabs on this pokie is worth up to 60,000.00 coins. You can play on this pokie in the real money mode or in the free play mode and you can pay for one spin on this game from as little as 0.25 coins up to a maximum of 125.00 coins.
This game has both Wild Symbols and Scatter Symbols. The Wild Symbol is the Wild Orient Logo and the Scatter Symbol is the Stone Elephant. The Wild Symbol will only ever show up on reels 2 and 4 (either side of the middle reel) and it has the ability to substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbol to help generate new winning combinations.
The main Bonus Feature on this pokie is a Free Spins Bonus Round and this will only ever trigger when three or more of the Stone Elephant Scatter Symbols land in any position across any of the reels. A guaranteed prize of 15 Free Spins will instantly be awarded and then all wins that occur during this bonus round will automatically be multiplied by 3X. Three or more Scatter Symbols showing up again during this bonus round will retrigger 15 more Free Spins and another 3X Prize Multiplier.
The other special feature available on this pokie is the Reel Respin Feature. This is an optional feature which you can select at the conclusion of any paid-for spin. You can respin one of the reels as many times as you like and depending on which reel you decide to respin will determine the exact cost. This is an exciting special feature which can get a bit expensive after a while and it doesn’t always guarantee a new line win.
If you hover over one of the reels you can see exactly how much it will cost you to respin that particular reel. You can also see the total cost of the respin just beneath each reel. This is fun new feature and although it doesn’t always guarantee a new line win, it can help trigger the occasional big line win. When you have chosen a reel to respin, simply click on it so that it can respin while the other four reels remain locked in position.
This innovative Reel Respin Feature is only ever active during normal play and never during the Free Spins Bonus and if you use this feature sensibly then it should occasionally work for you. This game has some relaxing and authentic Asian-style music playing along in the background and there are some fantastic sound effects accompanying the action. This game also has some cool animations and sharp graphics.
When you play on this game you can keep an eye on the game history and the win history by clicking on the stats button and you can view the balance either as credits or as coins & credits. There is also an autoplay feature which you can select and this will allow up to as many as 500 autospins.
The Wild Orient online pokie from Microgaming is definitely a fun game which most players will find entertaining. It has a great new special feature for players to enjoy and it has a universal game theme. Check out this game across Microgaming’s Flash, download, mobile and Quickfire platforms at any top-rated Microgaming casino that welcomes Australian players.
