Wild Animals In New Playtech Online Pokie

Animals are a common theme in online pokies. Some pokies revolve around a single animal, whereas there are many beasts in others. The setting can also vary. The new online pokie from Playtech at Omni Casino has animals in a jungle setting. It is titled Roaring Wilds. It is perhaps an online pokie that not all players will enjoy. There are no new or complex bonus features and the betting range is on the lower side. The maximum total bet works out to only NZ$16. Roaring Wilds has the usual five reels but four rows of symbols across them. There are 40 selectable paylines. You obviously go with the strategy of enabling all of them.

The background audio track is a highlight of Roaring Wilds, so you play the online pokie with the audio enabled. The high paying symbols are bear, puma, eagle and fish. It is an unusual collection without the more common animals like lion and elephant. The bear is the wild symbol and gives meaning to the title of the online pokie by letting out a roar in the win animations. The bear awards the top line payout of 1,000 coins. The next highest payout is only 200 times the line bet. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. All symbols often appear stacked on the reels. This aspect leads to high variance in the online pokie. With a bit of luck you can win big from modest bets.

The bear’s paw print is the scatter symbol. As usual this symbol awards scatter payouts multiplied by the total bet. Three or more scatter symbols also trigger the free spins feature. 15 free spins are awarded irrespective of the number of scatter symbols in the trigger. The feature can be retriggered in the usual manner. Roaring Wilds has the Playtech gamble option that players can activate if they want to test their luck further. The option allows you to stake half your win, if you want to, so you are sure of having something in the kitty. If you pick a card higher ranked than the open card, then your stake will be doubled. Otherwise you will lose the staked amount.

There is a piece of bad news at Omni Casino as well. Players have enjoyed for long the branded Playtech Marvel online pokies. These will no longer be available from April 1. The agreement between Playtech and Disney, the owners of the Marvel brand, is expiring and will not be renewed.
