Wild Pride from Booming Games: Slot Review - grab a lion's share of the rewards!
The wildlife and savannahs of Africa have been explored many times before in slots released by various software developers down through the years. This latest release from renowned software developer Booming Games is a fresh take on the theme as it takes players right into the heart of the savannah and it is one filled with wild beasts like zebras, lions, and gazelles who are roaming freely among the plains. Join us as we embark on a safari trip of a lifetime in this thrilling game!
Wild Pride is a 5 reel slot with 10 paylines and includes Free Spins and Interacting Symbols.
The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol and this is denoted by a colourful image of the game logo. Like most Wild symbols, it substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter to help form winning combinations on the reels. This symbol is quite important since it is highest paying symbol in the game. If you are lucky enough to land 5 of these symbols on an active payline then you will be leaving the savannah in real style with a jaw-dropping 100,000 coins in your pocket!
The Scatter symbol is represented by a detailed image of a Gnu. If you manage to land 3 or more of these symbols on the reels together then you will receive 10 Free Spins and each winning Free Spin benefits from a wonderful 2X Multiplier. A pleasing aspect of Free Spins is that it is possible to retrigger additional Free Spins without any limits, to get them, all you have to do is land 3 or more Scatters while in this feature.
Keep an eye out for the Lion and Lioness symbols on the reels as these icons are known as ‘interacting symbols’ which have the power to award some big bonuses. If the Lion and Lioness symbols land adjacent to each other on the reels then you’ll receive a ‘Majestic Win’ which is a nice bonus boost and it also displays a really cool animation sequence.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The presentation of the game is fantastic as it is set deep in a glorious African savannah that is bathed in a wonderful dusky orange glow. Symbols consist of a variety of African wildlife such as Gnu, Lions, Gazelles, Zebras, and the usual A – 10 icons. The animations are impressive as the symbols speed up and down the reels in furious fashion and enlarge and pop brightly when part of a winning combination. I really like the enchanting animation sequence that occurs when the Lion and Lioness symbols fall adjacent to each other to award a Majestic Win.
The music is excellent as it is full of lively tribal sounds and animals noises. It complements the Wildlife theme of the game superbly.

Our Verdict on Wild Pride
Booming Game produced this slot and it is a wild and exciting journey to the savannahs of Africa. The Wildlife theme has been explored many times before by other software developers but this take on it feels fresh and original thanks to its stunning presentation and great range of features. The standout feature of the slot is the Free Spins game and it is fantastic that Free Spins wins are nicely doubled and you can retrigger unlimited Free Spins. The Interacting symbols also keep things interesting as it makes you look out for the lion and lioness symbols every time you spin the reels. I found this game to be of Low variance which means if you like to place small bets then you can expect to land a steady stream of small payouts as you play the game.
