Solar Wilds Online Slot by Microgaming + All41 Studios sets you among the stars in an unfamiliar solar system with bizarre-looking planets and a background of changing colours. The game has a short and checkered history leading up to its eventual release. Its original incarnation; Space Enigma was struck down by a challenge from NetEnt who alleged that it was near identical to its Starburst slot, forcing All411 to redesign the title. The bonus features included are respins and wilds.
When a wild symbol appears on reels 2, 3, and 4, it will expand to cover the whole reel. This will trigger a respin where the triggering symbol becomes sticky and any further wilds that appear during the respin will also lock in place and trigger another respin.
Solar Wilds slot survived reinvention to make it to market, but the game would benefit from more than just cosmetic tweaks. The game’s theme has a mesmerising quality and the planet symbols give it an authentic sci-fi feel which is enhanced by the synth-infused soundtrack. Unfortunately, the intriguing quality seems to end with the visuals as the wild respins feature is the sole one available to you, which makes the pursuit of the slot’s maximum payout of $100 000 a less than thrilling endeavour. This title feels unfinished in places and a free spins or multiplier feature would have gone a long way to elevating it beyond the mundane.
