Walking Wild Slots

How many times have you been disappointed to see a wild symbol pass through your screen only to give you a small win? What if we told you there was a feature where the wild would not only stay on the screen for many spins but would also shift positions? Luckily for you, such a thing does exist and it’s called the walking wild feature.

Walking wilds are wild symbols that can appear throughout the game and stick to the screen. The player is then awarded respins during each of those the wild symbol moves horizontally one position to the left or right. This process repeats itself until one respin after the walking wild has come out of the game’s bounds.

Features of Walking Wild 

There really isn’t a way to activate the feature as it can be randomly triggered at any point throughout the gaming session. Also on a positive note, it is possible to benefit from even more respins as new walking wilds can appear at the same time is already active.

Apart from moving one position to the left or right, walking wilds can move towards both directions as well. This gives you an extra edge as it will take more time for the wild to move off the screen awarding you even more free respins.

Advantages and Disadvantages

The advantages depend on which form of walking wilds is offered on the game you’re playing. If there is a separate wild symbol that can move horizontally or vertically then there really aren’t any disadvantages. If however, there is only one wild symbol and it’s also the only walking wild then ending on a budget surplus is fairly hard.

It all comes down to luck but generally, if a game offers only one wild symbol then chances are that the slot is highly volatile meaning that scarce but large payouts are more likely than regular smaller wins.

Forms of Walking Wild 

Generally, there are 2 forms of walking wilds. The one where the walking wild symbol moves one position to the left or right per respin or the one where there can be more than one walking wild symbol. They can also come with the ability to walk both ways offering a winning edge in your favor.

Last, there is the possibility for more than one walking wild to activate simultaneously thus increasing the number of free respins you get.
