Overview

The Wild Flower is a Big Time Gaming creation loosely based on the song of the same name from The Cult. It’s a flowery, fantasy-themed slot machine that transports players to a magical wonderland filled with wolves, snow, and magic. There are 6 reels, 4,096 ways to win, and a massive maximum payout of 114,100x.

It’s not as music-focused as some of the other slots we have reviewed, but there is a definite fantasy rock theme, and fans of The Cult will recognize a few hints throughout.

Wildflower Game Features

In The Cult’s titular song, lead singer Ian Astbury gets in touch with his alter ego, a Wolfchild connected to mother nature. In the first verse, he sings “I’m howlin’ for you/
My heart beats faster” and in the chorus, he calls the Wild Flower the “Star of my dreams/The most beautiful thing”.

These lyrics come to life during the main feature, as you’re asked to choose between The Most Beautiful Thing and Heart Beats Faster bonuses. These Free Spin features are triggered by the Scatter symbols, which appear in both Red and Yellow versions. The latter is the main Scatter, and if the former appears during a feature activation, Enhanced Free Spins are awarded.

The Most Beautiful Thing awards 7 Free Spins, and during all of these spins, one of the low-paying symbols (represented by playing card icons) is transformed into a Sticky Wild. If there are four of these Sticky Wilds on a single reel, an additional 3 spins are added to the total.

The Heart Beats Faster option awards 12 spins and comes with a multiplier as high as 80x, as well as the possibility to retrigger the feature when three or more Scatters appear.

If you’re lucky enough to land the Enhanced Free Spins, you’ll be given more multipliers, including ones that can climb as high as 800x.

The action isn’t reserved for the main feature. There are also Wild Reels in the form of Wild Flowers and Wild Ice. They can appear anywhere on the second, third, fourth, and fifth reels and while both of them substitute for other symbols, the Wild Flowers go the extra mile by awarding an 8x multiplier.

You’ll see a lot of playing card icons on the reels, and the Wilds will help you to complete payouts with these symbols. But they’re all low paying, so the ones you’ll want to keep an eye out for are the Wolf, Woman, Paw Print, and Pentagram. These award between 1.5x and 10x for 6 on a payline. Most require at least 3 connections for a win, but the Wolf awards a payout with just 2 matching symbols.

Verdict: A subtle tribute

If you’re expecting an homage to The Cult that comes packed with songs from the band’s back catalog (including classics like She Sells Sanctuary, Rain, and Fire Woman), you might be a little disappointed with this one. But fans of the Bradford band should still check it out and see if they can find their sanctuary here.

Wild Flower features some huge reels, a massive 4,096 paylines, and an eye-watering 114,100x maximum win. And then you have the features, which include a choice of two Free Spins, 2 different Scatter symbols, and 2 Wild reels.

It’s twice the fun in every way. The “most beautiful thing” and the “perfect creation”, you could say.

FAQ
