Wild Run

Wild Run is a captivating safari-inspired online slot from NextGen Gaming that takes you to the heart of African's stunning Savannah, and introduces you to a host of animals in their natural habitat.

The slot also sees the return of NextGen's popular On-A-Roll feature which we've previously seen in Wolfpack Pays. As well as giving you up to 243 ways to create wins with every spin, Wild Run boasts a Free Games Bonus where all wins are multiplied by x5. So, grab your binoculars and get ready to spot some magnificent prizes!

More about the Software Provider

It was 1999 when NextGen Gaming was founded in Australia, and in the eighteen years that have since passed, the company has made an excellent name for itself through the production of scores of impressive online slots.

NextGen Gaming currently supplies online slots as one of four independent software studios which come under the remit of the NYX Gaming Group. In the past twelve months alone, it's created a string of smash hits, including slot games such as Wild Play Superbet, Golden Mane, Prosperity Twin, and Wild Run.

Appearance and Sound Effects
Wild Run is set in the heart of Africa, where the setting sunset leaves behind a burnt orange skyline. The silhouettes of giraffes and elephants can be spotted among the trees while atmospheric music featuring instruments emulating animal noises and tribal drumbeats accompanies every spin.

Looking at the reels, there are many different symbols that could help you gain prizes. There are four low-value symbols – the four playing card suits – plus four more generous animal symbols – the elephant, the leopard, the bison, and the rhinoceros. There's also an extremely valuable symbol in the shape of a lion with a golden mane which is also the Wild Run wild symbol.

Bonuses and Special Features

The Lion in Wild Run can substitute for all other paytable symbols, making it one of the most useful features in the game as it can not only create wins but also improve existing wins.

And, with every winning combination that appears on the screen, the On-A-Roll Feature kicks into action. You can see the On-A-Roll meter on the left-hand side of the reels, and it consists of two levels. The first level is the wild multiplier which can rise to x2 and then x3. The second level is the added wild feature, which adds an increasing number of wild Lion symbols to the reels at the start of each spin. On-A-Roll is deactivated when you fail to achieve a winning spin.

If you manage to create enough winning combos to make it to Level 2 of the On-A-Roll meter, the Free Spins Bonus is triggered. Rather than awarding a preset number of free games, the feature lets you continue to take spins until you get four non-winning spins in a row. Before the Bonus begins, five wild symbols are randomly added to the reels, and all wins that are assisted by one or more wild symbols are multiplied by x5.


Wild Run uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and 243 paylines, and has an above average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.186%.

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.
