Is Wildies as Good as Sugar Rush 1000? New Slot Spotlight

Wildies is a new sweepstakes casino slot that’s somewhat reminiscent of the breakout hit Sugar Rush. Both games are designed by Pragmatic Play and we’re taking a closer look at how Wildies stacks up to its sibling.

Pragmatic Play is no stranger to designing sweet-looking slots (pun intended). Wildies is the latest game featuring sugar, spice, and everything nice from Pragmatic Play. While it isn’t available at all social casinos, our team saw its release on Fortune Coins, WOW Vegas, SweepSlots, and we wanted to be the first to give it a spin. 

You can play this game using Gold Coins, which don’t have any real-world value. GC are free, and you’ll receive loads of them with your first bonus at Fortune Coins. You’ll also be able to play with SC and win real prizes if you get lucky enough. 

How Does Wildies Work? 

Pragmatic Play is a well-known casino software provider that’s all but taken over the industry with artfully designed slot machines and groundbreaking progressives. They have hundreds of sweet games in their arsenal, including the ever-popular Sugar Rush 1000. 

Sugar Rush 1000 takes on a Candy Crush look and feel to deliver exciting wins with a cascading or tumbling reels format. Wildies is more like a traditional slot game than anything else, but it doesn’t shy away from symbolizing sweetness with candy canes, Jell-O and fruit cakes flooding the screen on every spin.

They might not be directly comparable titles, but if you like the candy theme, you’re sure to love Wildies. 

Basic Layout & Volatility 

Wildies is a high-volatility slot that runs on a 4 x 5 grid with 20 symbols and 25 paylines. 

I was able to purchase free spins for 80,000 GC at Fortune Coins. I got hungry, thirsty, and nostalgic for colder weather as I watched coffees, gooey wafers, and letter-shaped gummy candies flash on the screen. 

The backdrop is reminiscent of a snowy holiday afternoon in a major metropolitan area. As I listened to the game’s wonky yet somehow catchy soundtrack, I expected Augustus Gloop or Willy Wonka to turn the corner at any moment. You can wager between 1,000 GC and 120,000 GC per spin, and there’s a maximum win multiplier of 7,500x the stake. 

You might not immediately see the fruits of your labor, but Wildies pays dividends to a few lucky players thanks to its extremely high volatility. It also features a 96.01% RTP during the base game. 

Slot Features & Bonuses 

After buying the game’s bonus for 80,000 GC, I was granted six free spins. This turned into nine free spins and a total bounty of 14,200 GC because of the re-trigger. You can get free spins during the middle of a bonus round if wilds land during one of your spins. 

If you don’t buy the bonus, you’ll have to land three or more scatters to unlock it.

There are no multi-way mechanics or massive bonus multipliers to mention, but this slot relies on simplicity as part of its appeal. You’ll win if you score 3+ matching symbols, but the cake with cherries is the highest-paying of them all. 

If you get five cakes in one spin, you’ll win 30x the bet. The Jell-O symbol is the second most valuable, paying 24x the stake when you match five of a kind. Wilds are disguised as delicious, gooey graham wafers that occupy two symbols vertically and horizontally. 

Wilds trigger re-spins when they land on the bonus grid, but this feature keeps going all the way up the chain. The second wild you see during a bonus game has a 2x multiplier. The third has a 3x multiplier. The fourth and fifth wilds have 5x and 10x win multipliers. 

Jackpot Wins Hit Some Super-Sweet Payouts on the Wildies Slot 

Jackpot Wins, a well-known slots influencer on YouTube, tried his luck on Wildies at BC Game and secured some super-sweet payouts as a result. 

He started out with a staggering $106,244 bankroll and turned that figure into a payout of $257,094.35, earning a $150,850 profit in just over eight minutes. He gets the video going with an immediate bonus round, and he wins $60,150 during a six-spin stint that turns into twelve free games because of the retrigger. 

Every time he lands three scatters to get a bonus round, magic happens at the reels. He wins $82,150 during his next set of free games, and his third bonus delivers $143,200 in profits. If he didn’t spend money to buy the bonus round several times, his payout would have been far larger. 

Still, pocketing $150k isn’t bad for a trial run!
