Wild Thirst Slot Machine by Ruby Play - Review and Play for free
Wild Thirst is played on a traditional 5×3 board, with 30 fixed paylines, but you pay whopping 50 coins to play. In this review we’ll see if it’s worth it or not, and in any case, the minimum bet per spin is €0.50, which is a bit high. The maximum allowed bet stands at €250 per spin.
Main game and paytable
The paytable is a small one, with eight symbols, and the prizes are minimal, at least as far as single payline wins are concerned. The maximum prize is 2.50x your bet, and you’ll get that for five Female Vampires, while three-of-a-kind prizes can only get you between 0.1x and 0.3x. This is one of those games.
Wild is common enough to make a difference, and it is also a paying symbol, with a maximum prize of 5x your total bet. Scatter is also a paying symbol, and if you land all five you’ll get 50x your total bet.
It’s just not possible to make money in the base game, not with a paytable such as this one. The maximum prize is 2.50x your bet, so with 30 paylines that means a full board win would be worth 75x your bet while in most games prizes for full board wins range in hundreds or thousands. There are no win multipliers in the base game, and the situation does get a lot better in the free spins game.
When you land three or more Scatters you’ll win free spins, and will always get only 8 free spins plus the Scatter cash prize. During the free spins, Wilds on reels 2 and 4 can multiply wins up to x25 total as one wild can multiply it by x5.
Six or more Firecatcher symbols trigger the Firecatcher Feature. Each symbol appears with a prize between 1x and 200x your total bet, and these symbols may appear randomly on any spin. When you do land six Firecatcher symbols you get 3 re-spins and you need to land at least one more symbol to reset the re-spin count. If you land Firecatcher symbols on all 15 positions you win Scorcher Jackpot, which is 10,000x total bet.
Wild Thirst Slots RTP
Theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.26%, and it would be great if all of it would be available in the base game and the free spins game, but a large portion goes to the four jackpots. So, unless you win them, you’re playing a game with a low RTP. The purpose of the base game and the free spins game is to keep you going until you finally win one of four jackpots.
It’s best to think of Wild Thirst as a jackpot game. Even with a minimum bet, the jackpot would be €5,000 and it can rise all the way up to €2,500,000 but for that kind of bet per spin (€250) you’d have to have a million already. In any case, the rest of the game is very difficult to play as the jackpots take a lot of the RTP, so don’t play this game in hope of winning during the base game. In the free spins game it gets much easier but still not good enough. This is a jackpot game.
