We hope so, since any mention of the word wild does tend to reveal what we can expect from a slot. Wild Scarabs does reveal the identity of the wild symbol in this Microgaming slot, but it also reveals the theme. We are once again in ancient Egypt for this one, although the theme is used minimally here, with only the hint of pyramids in the background.
If you love the 243-ways games, you’ve got another one here, spread over five reels.
Picking a bet per spin is easy in this game. Go from as little as 20 cents up to $60 at most.
If you guessed the scarab beetle would be the wild icon, you were correct. Most of the other symbols can be substituted by the beetle to see whether that will help form a winning line. The exception, as always, is the scatter. This is a strange symbol as it appears in gold, orange, and blue… but after a careful look we have no idea what it is supposed to represent!
Three or more scatters are all you need to find to get 10 free spins. Wild wins can occur here, but if wilds appear and don’t lead to prizes, they are collected until you have three. At this point, the three wilds are added onto the reels in random positions to ensure you win something. The free games cannot be triggered again, unless you do so from the base game.
If a wild should appear in any spin on the third reel and it doesn’t lead to a win, you may be lucky and see up to four extra wilds deposited onto the reels. If this occurs, those wilds are guaranteed to bring you a win when you wouldn’t otherwise have had one.
Wild Scarabs is a pleasant-enough slot, although it may not be complex enough for some players. If you get the chance to play it, we recommend you do so. This is a good game with some twists, and those twists make it more exciting to play from one spin to the next.
