The Wild Weather slot game, created by Tom Horn, takes on a concept that wouldn’t be most game developers’ first choice for a fun, engaging slot theme, but that means you’re in for a unique slot experience that offers something different to players.
Let’s take a look at this one in more detail to find out more about what makes it tick.
Players of Wild Weather are met with a traditional 5×3 playboard featuring an array of symbols drafted straight from your local weather report. Sunshine, wind and rain all play a regular part in the game, while the rest of the board is taken up by various temperatures, such as 30 degrees, 10 degrees, and so on.
If you like to take things slowly on a small budget you can stake as little as $/€/£0.10 per spin, although fans of the very biggest stakes may feel a little underwhelmed by the $/€/£100 max stake, which, let’s face it, is a nice problem to have…
When reviewing slot games we like to look for Returns To Player (RTP) rates of at least 95% and we were pleased to discover an RTP of 96% on Wild weather, while it’s modest volatility means you can enjoy steady wins without your balance being blown away too quickly. See what I did there? Little wind joke? Nevermind.
Bear in mind that no two sessions are the same, but we enjoyed a steady line of small, albeit unspectacular payouts while putting Wild Weather through its paces. Pocketing a win is relatively straightforward, with players just needing to line up three matching symbols on one of the game’s 18 paylines.
The game has a very minimalist, clean feel, which is great for players that are into that kind of thing. However, players who enjoy punchy, in-your-face content while they spin might not get particularly excited about this one.
Wild Weather springs into life when you land either the Vertically Expanding Wild or the Expanding Mega Wild. These are both triggered by wild tornado symbols landing anywhere on your screen and can lead to bumper free spin bounties and big cash prizes.
I think it’s safe to say that we will be filing Wild Weather away as one of the many slot games you have to try once, purely so you can take in a new concept that isn’t just your typical playing cards, jewels or lucky clovers. However, fans of high-octane, fast-paced slots may well feel a bit undernourished by this one, and the overall feel of the game suggests it is geared towards the casual, low-stakes market. So, if that’s your thing, why not give Wild Weathers a try!
