Synot are not the largest developer of online casino games and slots, so when one of their games appears, it is always going to generate a significant amount of interest. The Wild Job, as its title suggests, is a bank heist-themed slot machine, and one which features a rather primitive gaming structure of just 5 reels and 9 paylines. The imagery in this game is not exactly original or inventive, costing of a mixed pot of both high playing card icons and mildly thematic symbols, such as stacks of cash and diamonds. The Wild Job can see players able to bet anything from 0.20 per spin (which seems rather harsh, given the lacklustre 9 lines) up to 100.00 per spin. You would rightly expect a big non-progressive jackpot in exchange for the over-the-top wagers, but the top prize in this game is capped at just 500x your total bet, which doesn’t really fill us with too much enthusiasm.
If the petite non-progressive doesn’t bother you, why not give it a go? To land it, players are going to have to pocket 5 wild symbols on any active payline in the game. Now that you know that wilds can crop up in this slot, what else do you need to know about these symbols? Nothing, really. They can replace all other icons in the game barring bonus symbols; that’s about all there is to them.
Bonus symbols take the shape of three main characters, and they each have a rather distinctive look. A leprechaun, ring mistress and mad inventor seem to be the most accurate ways of describing these characters icons, and landing them on the first, third and fifth reels will trigger a free spins bonus round in this slot.
There is nothing incredibly spectacular about the free spins bonus here, certainly nothing to warrant the extended wagering range present in this slot. A total of 10 free spins are dished out to players. Those spins will see bonus symbols expand and become expanding wild symbols, no less. That doesn’t alter gameplay much, though, and even the fact that the feature is re-triggerable doesn’t make The Wild Job any more playable, or the wagers any friendlier.
