Gameplay, Playability and Volatility
Wild Scarabs instantly makes it easy for players to play the game. With simple controls and a relatively standard video slot layout unless you are a complete newcomer it will instantly be obvious how to play. The two main features in Wild Scarabs are the free spins mode and the wild deal mode.
When 3 or more scatter symbols land on the reels the free spins mode is triggered. This will award 10 free spins. During the free spins mode any scatters that land on the reel will be added to the stashed wilds. Once the stashed wilds hits 3 they will be added to the game board. If you run out of free spins but only have 1 or 2 stashed wilds then the free spins will continue until you land another scatter symbol and trigger the stashed wilds. This means that potentially unlimited free spins could be awarded.
When a wild symbol lands on the middle reel but doesn’t create a winning line the Wild Deal feature is triggered. This will place up to 4 wilds onto the reels to try and create some winning lines.
The low volatility for Wild Scarabs means that wins come along quite often. This is backed up by some relatively lucrative wins in relation to the volatility of the game.
