X-Wild Online Slot Review

Variety is good, options are good? Or is it? Sometimes it is just so much easier to know your options and be able to make an easy choice. Sometimes it's the same with the best online slot games, in that we feel that more flash, more paylines, more bonus features etc., are the way to go. But what about a slot that gives you frequent joy from its one bonus feature? X-Wild is a slot that declutters the experience, and with respins triggered far more than what you’ll be used to, simple is something just the thing we need.

When looking at X-Wild, you'll see a large X that creates a cross of the diagonal sort through the reels. This is how the game creates its X-factor, no pun intended, but we'll cover this element in more detail when we come to the bonus section of this review. The studio that created X-Wild is 1x2 Gaming, and for this one, they've gone for a simple fruit look and feel, although there is perhaps a bit more flash than other slots online such as Fruits and Beyond, or Fruit Shop, which also went for the same theme.

Even the mechanics are simple here. You won’t find anything fancy like Megaways or clusters, but rather a straightforward 5 reel, 3 row grid hosting ten paylines on which players can land 3, 4 and 5 of a kind winning combos. X-Wild gives you various different amounts which you can choose to stake, which fall between a minimum of 0.10 per spin and 100 per spin. You won't find the reels too volatile, as 1X2 Gaming have implemented a medium variance, so while that doesn’t necessarily mean wins will be flowing like a fruit punch, it does mean wins are usually easier to come by. The most you’ll be in with a shot at winning is 1,500x your stake, which isn’t amazing but also not terrible either.

Feature Symbols

X Wild Feature Symbols Eng - partycasino-canada

Whenever a slot uses fruit as the theme, you could assume that developers have run out of original ideas and have just got lazy. Regardless, fruits as symbols do get the job done in acting as vessels to form wins. As the lowest value symbols, there are cherries and lemons, with oranges, strawberries and plums having slightly higher values, with grapes and then watermelon with the highest fruit values. The highest paying regular icon is the 7 for 3, 4 and 5 of a kind wins.

There’s a wild icon that can come to your aid, in that it acts as all regular symbols in order to complete winning combinations.

Bonuses and Jackpots

X Wild Bonus Eng - partycasino-canada

The bonus feature of X-Wild is easy to grasp and, compared to most other online slot machines, it is actually very simple and basic.

The cross covers only parts of reels 2, 3 and 4, which is impossible for CA players to miss when playing the reels. If you land a wild symbol in any of the windows that the cross covers, you’ll be rewarded with a respin. The wild that initially landed in the cross will stay in place for the respin. And if another wild lands in the cross on the respin, there will be another respin, and so on.

Wins on respins will have a multiplier applied to them according to the number of wilds in the cross windows.

As you might be able to tell, wilds probably land in windows covered by the cross quite often, meaning you’ll be landing high quantities of respins. Of course, this is in your favour, because it means that CA players could get wins from spins that you didn't even have to place stakes for. While there isn't a free spins feature or the added value of a second bonus feature, players are sure to be more than happy at the number of respins X-Wild has coming their way
