Wild Tome of the Woods from Quickspin: Slot Review - a forest with a midas touch!

Take a trip to an enchanted forest where everything is turning into gold in this fun Quickspin slot.

Enter a mysterious forest where a magic book is causing all sorts of problems in this new release from acclaimed software provider Quickspin. The forest in question is Whittlewood Forest which is a former medieval hunting ground in Northamptonshire, England. An old wizard by the name of Tom lives there who goes by the nickname of Middy (short for Midas) and it is here where he has attempted numerous times rather unsuccessfully to turn things into gold. That’s all changed now as his Wild Tome which contains all of his gold-related spells has started to transform random objects around it into gold! Join us as we attempt to take full advantage of the situation to grab some gold for ourselves!

Wild Tome of the Woods is a 6 reel slot game with 26 paylines that includes Stacked Symbols and Wild Symbols.

Special Features

First things first, how do you create wins in this game? Well, it is pretty straightforward as all you need to do is land 3 or more matching symbols on an active payline starting from left to right. There are 6 reels in the game which makes it possible to form 6 of a kind winning combinations too.

Wild Tome of the Woods features an interesting mix of symbols that are comprised of the Wizard’s animal friends. These include Sylvester the fox, Crikey the half frog/half newt, Eleanor the Owl, along with a bunch of different coloured potions. The most rewarding symbol out of these is the Owl as if you happen to land 6 on a payline then you’ll be leaving the forest with a nice cash prize worth 16X your wager. Symbols can also appear stacked on the reels to help form winning combinations more easily.

The Wild symbol in the game is illustrated by a shiny gold frame with the word ‘Wild’ placed inside. Like most Wilds, the main job of this symbol is to replace all other symbols to help contribute to winning combinations. It is also the most valuable symbol in the game as if you are lucky enough to land 6 on an active payline then you will be awarded a fine cash payout worth 20X your stake.

The main symbol to keep an eye out for is the Wild Tome symbol. When 1 or more of these symbols appear on the reels then you will trigger the Wild Tome Feature. Once activated, each Wild Tome symbol will then choose 1 of the regular symbols and transform them into Wilds. The Wild Tome can also turn itself Wild and if one of the Wild symbols turns into a new Wild Tome symbol then you will trigger a chain reaction effect where it is possible to fill up all of the reels with Wilds. Manage to fill the entire reel grid with Wilds and you’ll trigger the All Wilds feature which awards the game’s top prize – a fine 1,000X your stake!

Theme, Graphics and Sound

It's no secret that Quickspin always comes up in trumps in the graphics department for their games and as expected, it is a sheer joy to look at as it takes place inside a dense green forest with lots of glowing fireflies surrounding the reels. Symbols are cartoon-like, beautifully designed, and have a wonderful hand-drawn quality to them. They consist of an Owl, a Fox, a Half Frog/Half Newt, along with an assortment of different coloured potions. The animations are crisp as symbols speed down rapidly on the reels and are highlighted by a bright orange frame when part of a win. It’s particularly exciting when the Wild Tome symbol appears as a wave of magic surrounds the reels to turn regular symbols into Wilds. It’s a very nice visual touch and further adds to the gameplay.

The music is atmospheric with lots of animal noises playing in the background. It ties in nicely with the Enchanted Forest feel of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 26 paylines, a respectable RTP of 96.28%, and a top maximum payout worth 1,000X your bet.

Our Verdict on Wild Tome of the Woods

Top software studio Quickspin produced this gorgeous looking game, that’s a mildly entertaining trip to a forest full of gold. Despite featuring amazing graphics and a wonderful matching soundtrack, it does not come with that many bonus features which is a real shame, to be honest. A Free Spins or Pick-Me Bonus Game would have added a lot more variety and replay value here. Having said that, the Stacked symbols do help to form plenty of wins on the reels with the Wild Tome adding lots of Wilds to the mix too. We did not manage to trigger the All Wilds feature although we did bag a nice cash prize worth 416X your bet for filling all of the reels with the Owl symbol. The top prize for this game is a fine 1,000X your wager which can be won by triggering the All Wilds feature. For variance, it is Medium so you will win plenty of decent-sized cash prizes the more you play. For more forest adventure fun, check out Wishwood and Wolf Cub.
