Special Features

The first feature to talk about is the Wild symbol which is represented by a brown chest. It substitutes for all other symbols, appears only on reels 2, 3, and 4, and also acts as the Scatter symbol in this game. When you land one or two chests on the reels then they will proceed to stick in place and award a Free Respin. This is known as the Rapid Respins feature. Wild symbols will continue to fall off the screen when more appear with further Respins awarded but this feature ends when no new Wilds appear on the reels.

The Gold Rush feature is a random bonus feature which can trigger anytime during a normal spin. Once activated, all chests will become gold and award multipliers ranging from 2X to 5X. The multipliers can combine together here to great effect to give payouts as high as 125X to further enhance your chances of landing a huge cash payout.

Land 3 Chests on the reels and you will trigger the special River of Gold Free Spins feature. Here, the Chests will stick to the reels and proceed to walk 1 space down with every Free Spin. This continues until no more chests remain on the reels.

If you are lucky enough to land 8 gold chests during the random Gold Rush feature then you will activate the Super River of Gold Free Spins bonus round. This plays out just like the River of Gold bonus feature but with one very special caveat - all of the gold chests that appear will have 2X, 3X, or 5X multipliers! This means you have the potential to combine multipliers to win payouts worth a massive 125X on every Free Spin! This feature just like the River of Gold Free Spins feature ends when no more chests appear on the reels.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

From a presentation standpoint, the graphics in this slot are superb as it takes place directly in front of a flowing waterfall with lots of chests teetering on the edge at the top of the reels. If you look closely, you will even spot some fish jumping across from time to time! Symbols are nicely designed and consist of lots of mining paraphernalia including Lanterns, Pans, Shovels, Picks, as well as classic A – 10 icons. The animations are wonderful as large chests appear from the top of the waterfall and quickly fall off the reels as you wait in hope for them to stick and help trigger the various bonus features in the game. A special highlight is when you trigger the River of Gold Free Spins feature as the waterfall turns from light blue to a sparkling gold colour. It’s a wonderful visual touch.

The music is jaunty with a banjo-inspired soundtrack. It ties in perfectly with the old-school mining theme of the game.

Wild Falls is super easy to play, features excellent graphics and animations, and a fairly decent amount of bonus features to enjoy. This game is all about landing those all-important chest symbols on the reels so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for them as they flow downstream.
