More about the Software Provider

International Game Technology PLC (known as IGT for short) is one of the biggest names in the online slots industry. The company has its roots in Las Vegas casinos, where its games began to turn heads back in 1996 when Wheel of Fortune – the first progressive jackpot slots game – made its debut. In the years since IGT has continued to build its catalogue of games with online slots of varying themes. The best-known titles include Cleopatra, Wolf Run, Da Vinci Diamonds, Golden Goddess, Black Widow, and Kitty Glitter.

Appearance and Sound Effects

The Wild Life provides players with a breathtaking vista of the African savannah by sunrise. As most of the background consists of a stunning yellow, orange, and red sunrise, the dark silhouettes of the trees that sit along the horizon are even more noticeable.

When the reels are not in motion, all you can hear is the faint sound of tree frogs and birds, but the game then comes to life when you hit the Spin button as medium-paced African tribal music starts to play.
Animals predominantly provide the paytable symbols in The Wild Life, and they include roaring lions, rhinos, zebras, giraffes, elephants, and leopards. There are also four playing card symbols (A, K, Q, and J) which look like they made from animal skin and a map of the continent of Africa.

Bonuses and Special Features

As you'd expect from a name called The Wild Life, there's a wild symbol which is integral to the game. It's represented by the roaring lion which is leaping through the air and is only ever used on Reels 2, 3, and 4. When the wild lands on the screen, it turns the entire reel wild. It can also replace all paytable symbols except the scatter.

The Map of Africa is the scatter symbol, and when it appears three, four, or five times anywhere on the reels on the same spin, it awards ten, fifteen, or twenty free games accordingly. Every extra scatter that lands during the bonus gives you another two free spins. Also, when an expanding wild reel is created, it stays expanded for the duration of the feature.


The Wild Life uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and ten paylines, and has an RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 92.16% to 96.16%.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
