Wild Frames: Slot Overview

Wild Frames is the latest addition to Play'n GO’s collection of grid slots. This one combines the modern features and gameplay we have come to expect from the series with a classic fruit slot vibe and symbols. Previous grid slots from Play'n GO had the ability to get some great rolls on when the cluster system did its thing with the cascading wins mechanic. Mix in a bunch of features and modifiers such as the Charge Meter and the volatility is matched only by the payout potential. Wild Frames might look and feel different, but fans will be relieved to hear that, at its core, it retains everything that made previous grid slots so successful. On paper this is a promising prospect indeed, let’s see how it plays out.

Graphically, Wild Frames is not quite as instantly appealing as previous versions such as Honey Rush or Black Mamba. Its 7x7 grid is full of classic slot symbols which sit against a fairly plain background made up of various purple tones and geometric shapes. It’s pleasing, in a minimalist way, but once the action kicks off in earnest you won’t even notice it. The horizontal bar along the bottom lets players select bet levels from 20 p/c up to £/€100 per spin, and like other similar slots, there aren’t paylines as such. Instead, winning combinations are formed when similar symbols land next to each other horizontally or vertically in clusters.


Key stats include volatility which is as high is it gets with a 10/10 rating from Play'n GO. Slots providers have some control over the RTP which can vary from casino to casino, but will usually be set to either 94.5% or 96.5%. This being the case, make sure to check the paytable at your local online casino to find out which one you are using for best value.

As mentioned, symbols come straight out of the old school fruit slots play book. There are 8 base game symbols – big bright card suits, diamonds, clubs, hearts, and spades, followed by equally bold bells, stars, diamonds and lucky 7’s. At least 5 of a kind in a cluster are needed to spark a payout, and when they do, they vanish off the screen. New symbols tumble into the gaps which can spark of cascades of clusters and wins from a single spin. This is a common enough mechanic at the moment and one that suits this 7x7 grid style perfectly. The most valuable pay symbol is the ‘7’ - get 30 or more of them in a cluster and you’ve scored a solid 500 times the stake right there.


Wild Frames: Slot Features
Wild Frames have a total of 5 bonus features. There’s a Wild Frames feature where wilds landing on the frames will come with multipliers that can rise up to 9x. As well as random wilds, there’s a Charge Meter feature which gives you 3 more bonus features when you get 20 or more charges.




Random Wilds feature
There’s also a wild symbol (the W) which replaces all symbols. On a non-winning spin or cascade, between 4 and 6 wild symbols can randomly be placed on the reels – this increases your chances of forming a winning cluster which triggers subsequent cascades.


Wild Frames feature
Wild symbols will also create a sticky frame on the positions they appear on – if a frame is already in place, the new wild will upgrade the existing frames with multipliers. Every time a new wild lands, the multiplier increases by 1 – up to 9x if you’re lucky. Saying that, all wild frames are inactive until the Wild Frames feature is triggered.




Charge Meter feature
All winning symbols from a cluster will fill the Charge Meter with each symbol adding 1 charge. If you get 20, 40 or 60 charges, you will activate the 3 more features:


Transform feature    In play after 20 charges    Changes high value symbols into random symbol
Wildcard feature    In play after 40 charges    Adds between 3 and 6 wilds on the grid
Shatter feature    In play after 60 charges    Removes low value symbols from grid


Now, if you manage to charge the Charge Meter fully with 80 symbols, the Wild Frames feature comes into play. All sticky frames with multipliers are then active. You can also overcharge the Charge Meter with every additional 10 charges adding 2 frames randomly. For every winning cluster, the biggest multiplier is applied. The Wild Frames feature comes to an end when no more winning clusters/formations are created.


Wild Frames: Slot Verdict
Visually, Wild Frames is not all that exciting although its well put together. The theme is generic and not nearly as original as some of the other grid slot offerings from Play'n GO. From a marketing point of view, the classic look might of course win some new fans over that are otherwise put off by this type of 'modern' gameplay. Mechanically, on the other hand, it's everything you've come to expect from these grid slots.


To get the most out of Wild Frames you will need the game to prolong cascades as long as possible. Strike it lucky and a major snowballing effect occurs. The Charge meter fills up, more features are unleashed on the grid, and more frames are added. Hit the main Wild Frame feature when the 80 symbols clear and some insane wins can pop along - there are plenty of online videos demonstrating this phenomenon with previous grid slots. There is plenty at to play for too, with the ability to hit up to 7,000 times the stake. Not as much as Honey Rush perhaps, but still one of the studios highest potential games ever released.


Overall, the game is well balanced in spite of the high volatility, but can still punish or reward in equal measure. In such a situation, be prepared for an emotional roller coaster and bankrolls that can vanish or skyrocket in an instant. At the end of the day, grid slots is where Play'n GO excels and Wild Frames is no exception. The theme may not be as exciting as some of the other offerings, but if you like grid slots, you can't go wrong with this one.
