Wild Bots Orchestra
Woodstock was one of the most important music festivals of all time, and GAMING1 is making a bit of a play on this festival with the Wild Bots Orchestra online slot. The premise of this game is that a bunch of robots from space have come to take part in the Oilstock robot music festival, and you get to cash in across the reels while the music plays and these bots enjoy themselves. This is a very atypical theme that is done extremely well with solid graphics and sound, and it also has a very solid set of features as a part of great overall gameplay.
Format and Layout
The basic layout here is five reels and four rows with 50 paylines. You have bet sizes in this game that are actually independent of the number of paylines, though you can't play with fewer than all 50 activated. This video slot uses payouts that are also based on the total bet size, so you don't have to bother with confusing line bet win combinations and other complications. All you have to do is choose the wager size you want and start playing. It's as simple as that, and we wish that other slot providers would follow suit.
Wild Symbols and Cascade Feature
There is a wild robot with a bright yellow motif that is the wild symbol in this game. It does not get its own payouts, and it does not substitute for the bonus symbol. However, it does give you a ton of value, and a big part of that is how the cascade feature works in this game.
With the cascade feature, every winning spin in the regular game mode will start a winning streak. All of the symbols from the winning combinations will clear out, and new symbols will fall into place. You can continue this over and over again, and it will run your streak up until you have a re-spin where you don't get any new winning combinations.
If you get a streak of 12 or more, then when it ends, you will be taken to a bonus feature where you'll have a chance to win one of the four jackpots that you can see listed on the left-hand side of the screen.
GAMING1 has set up a number of small, medium and large winning payouts here to keep the pay table balanced. Five of the green robot earns 8x, and five of the drum bot gets you 4x. Remember that these are multiplied by 50 to get your equivalent line bet wager win, which would be 400x and 200x, respectively. This is well within the range of normal, especially when you consider the value that comes from the cascade feature.
Five of the bot with the S on it pays out a solid 1.6x, and you'll win 1x for five of the keybot that looks like a piano with arms. Five of the yellow A or red K will earn players a win worth 0.80x, and you'll get 0.40x for five of the green Q, blue J or purple 10.
Free Spin Feature
The bonus symbol has a chance to show up on every one of the 20 spots on the reels, so you need at least five to trigger the free spins bonus feature. However, you can earn up to 30 free spins with at least 13 of the bonus symbol on the reels, so it's clear that there's a lot of value to be had here.
On top of that, the free spins give you a special bit of value. It starts with any winning turn during the free spin feature. You'll be able to pick between different bots to get an extra added on like free spins, an instant win prize and more.
We are of the opinion that Wild Bots Orchestra has one of the coolest, most atypical themes for a slot that we can remember having ever seen. The concept of robots coming from outer space for the bot version of Woodstock is just great, and they have fit everything about the game into this theme. With the ability to earn up to 30 free spins at a time, and with the high-action, cascade feature, you will have a very fast-paced experience in this game. That's something that we think will appeal to a lot of different players, and that's why we recommend this game for just about anyone who is a fan of video slots.
