NetEnt’s Wild Turkey slot machine has been trending among gamblers since it graced online casino platforms in 2013. It’s a highly volatile slot with a top payout of 4,000x and 96.60% RTP. This game revolves around a tribe of turkeys who arm themselves with crude weapons to defend their turf.
On July 20, 2023, NetEnt announced that our feathery friends are back in the medium to high volatility Wild Turkey Megaways slot. Unlike the first instalment with 20 bet lines, this slot uses a winning ways mechanic, giving players up to 117,649 ways to win. In this exciting follow-up, players return to the realm of tribal turkeys, recreating the original game’s ambience with two exhilarating wilds and free spins.
The tribal 10-A card royals are the low-value icons, rewarding gamers if they can match 3 to 6 of them on adjacent reels. These symbols can pay anything between 0.1x to 0.6x the stake. You can also find the turkey characters on the reels, rewarding you with 0.3 to 3x the stake. Although the volatility is high, the 96.02% RTP is above average.
Whenever you create a winning combination, the Avalanche feature will activate. This feature will see all winning symbols disappear from the reels, with new icons falling into their positions. This continues as long as gamers create a winning combination, increasing their chances of bagging the 7,239x maximum win.
With two thrilling wild features and the tantalizing top payout, players can win big in the Wild Turkey Megaways slot machine. The Wild Turkey feature can randomly activate, resulting in entangled vines surrounding the center reels while transforming the valuable bird symbols into Wild Turkeys. These unique wilds can lead to the game’s longest winning combination on a single because they substitute all paying symbols whenever they land on the reels.
The Scatter Wild is another exciting symbol in this animal-themed pokie machine. It can lead to long winning sessions because it can substitute all paying symbols when it appears on the game board.
In addition, players can collect 10 Free Spins when 3+ Scatter Wilds land on Reels 2–5 and fill the progress bar. During this bonus round, the Wild Turkey feature may also trigger, boosting the possibility of forming big wins. Moreover, players receive two additional free spins when Scatter Wilds stack during free spins to become a full-reel symbol.
Commenting on the brand-new game release, Nicholas Peters, Chief Business Development Officer Europe at Evolution, stated: “The NetEnt team has enhanced the classic game with Big Time Gaming’s industry-changing Megaways mechanics to deliver the excitement of 117,649 win ways. With the two wild variations, the Wild Turkey feature and free spins, players can return to the jungle to explore the world of winged warriors with a max win potential of 7,200x.”
This game is an excellent addition to NetEnt’s already popular slots collection. At the end of last month, the company expanded its popular Twin Spin franchise with Twin Spin XXXtreme. During the same month, NetEnt added the Megaways mechanic to The Wish Master, a magic-themed slot released in 2014.
