Microgaming’s Wonder Woods slot game certainly has the volume cranked up on the cheese-o-meter but has plenty of quirks and gimmicks that make it a fun, immersive slot that delivers surprise at every corner.
Let’s take a look at the facts and the figures that combine to make Wonder Woods an exciting trip down nostalgia lane in our Wonder Woods slot game review.
Players of Wonder Woods slot will be met with a 5×3 playboard littered with colour and plenty going on. Alongside your traditional playing card values, you also have some more flashy symbols that provide bonus features and free spins.
Slot players of all sizes are catered for in the stake department, with a $/€/£0.10 minimum bet, going right up to $/€/£100 per spin if you’re feeling particularly lucky.
The Returns to Player (RTP) rate for Wonder Woods comes in at just over 96%, meaning it nestles nicely in the “above average” category. The game carries medium volatility, which means that small wins are relatively easy to come by, with features and free spins not too far away either.
The visuals themselves take a little bit of getting used to and the style of the game is very much a fast-paced, in-your-face, all-action game with something happening every other spin. For those of you who like to play low-level stakes for a bit of fun then this is probably the game for you, but for high-rollers who like to grind out big wins then you might prefer a more low-tempo slot.
The game is wrapped together by a soundtrack that is something of a foot-tapper that’s reminiscent of something from the classic UK gameshow, Catchphrase (Google it and you’ll understand!).
Picking up wins is nice and easy, with players needing to line up three matching symbols on one of the game’s 20 paylines. There are also bonus multipliers on offer if you can line up their Wonder Woods and Wilds symbols.
Where the game carries an element of uniqueness is through their question-mark symbol teasers, which arrive fairly often and give you an extra sprinkle of hope that your spin will end with a win. The question mark will turn itself into a random symbol, which could be the final piece in the puzzle towards a match.
If you have 20 minutes to spare and fancy a quick bit of fun on the slots, then we would probably recommend Wonder Woods as a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously and gives players something to look at with every spin. However, we’d say it is a fairly superficial game that doesn’t carry a huge amount of depth or character, so it’s unlikely to be the sort of game that you develop a genuine soft spot for, but as we’ve said, it’s one of those games that you have to try at least once to see which side of the Marmite spectrum you land on.
