Last week the iGaming industry was given another gangster-themed slot to try, this time from Greentube, a division of NOVOMATIC software who’ve released various titles over the last few years. When players first see the name Really Wild Slots and the foreboding image of a street thug in a hoodie, they’re probably going to imagine they’re in for an extremely violent time, although this couldn’t be further from the truth.
The first thing to remember is this was created in Vienna, Austria and it appears as if their criminals are a little friendlier than ones in the UK or North America. Since the main gangster looks more like a computer hacker than a gang member and no weapons are to be seen anywhere during the action, it’s basically “neon homage to urban life”, not “junior Scarface of the streets” type of affair.
Stylistically, beautiful cartoon fruit covers the board and a traditional ’80s-themed “Wild” graffiti font instantly reminds users of subway trains in New York City. The soundtrack is anything but menacing and in fact is quite soothing and relaxing. All of this frames a minuscule seven lines and four reels, which are quite unique numbers to see in this day and age, as most companies usually release games with 20 or more lines minimum with 5 reels.
However, it does feature a free spins mode and tons of Wilds, so plenty of elements will be both familiar and profitable. Anyone craving a sneak peak at this “wild” creation can check out the video below. Just try not to get too scared.
