The Wild Machine
We’re going back to a different time with the Wild Machine slot but we’re not entering a phase of classic or retro-themed slots, no we’re going into the next generation of slots. You could say we’re going back to the future.
About the Wild Machine
We have found that there are primarily two types of players when it comes to our slots, those who prefer a very linear game that sticks to natural slot conventions and those who would look into playing the Wild Machine. Between Shapeshifting reels, Wonder Wheels, Portals and the Wild Machine itself, there is a lot of action going on in the Wild Machine. A lot of action means that we’re in for a tonne of casino bonuses and a tonne of casino bonuses means that we can see some mightily impressive winning potential in this slot. However, the fantastic winning potential and the grand bonus features aren’t the only reason to play this slot. The Wild Machine is also aesthetically pleasing with the laboratory in the background and the mad scientist who has been drawn almost too well but as he can pull a lever and present players with the most significant wins available. We’ll refrain from asking what happened to his hand and eye.
This slot has been created by Pragmatic Play, who are well known for producing some of the best online slots in the industry. The Wild Machine legitimately has a chance of being their best yet due to the two Casino Free Spins rounds and the plethora of other features that support it. Our favourite? The shapeshifting reels which turn a standard 5x5 shaped casino game into a 1-3-5-7-5-3-1 slot supported by the wild symbols that open up on each side of the slot.
How to Play The Wild Machine
How to set your stake
To change your stake on the Wild Machine slot, click the - and the + buttons to decrease or increase the value. After doing so, a pop-up will appear with four pieces of information, three that are interchangeable. The first is that the bet multiplier is 20x and the three changeable options are bet, coin value and the total bet. Changing the total bet will change the other features accordingly.
How to spin the reels
Once you’ve checked your total bet and have set your stake, you can then go on to spin the reels, here you will have the options to spin automatically or manually, to spin manually use the large spin button. To spin automatically use the autoplay button underneath.
We like the autoplay feature in Pragmatic Play games simply because of what it offers, turbo spins, quick spins, skip screens, sliders and limits are all available at the click of a button.
The Wild Machine: Bonus Features
The Wonder Wheel
Land three scatter symbols on the reels, and you will activate the Wonder Wheel feature in the Wild Machine, this will introduce players to a wheel with five free spins segments and five cash prize segments between them. Land on a cash prize and you may be able to pick up the total next to it to combine wins but the big winner here is the free spins feature which once activated allows players to pick between two free spins bonus rounds.
Once players activate the free spins bonus round, they will be given a choice between these two bonus rounds.

The Boss Believes: The Wild Machine slot review
This slot is one that we’re particularly fond of due to the fantastic bonus rounds available and the impressive graphics on show. The slot is very playable and is one that could end up in our best bonus slots. The Wild Machine is one of the best Pragmatic Play slots we’ve seen.
