Join Gerard Wilde, the black sheep of the renowned Wilde Family, as he sets off on a journey of discovery and redemption to reclaim the honour of his family name.
Venture across the world with Gerard in search of riches and mysteries from the dunes of Egypt to the lost temples of the Mexican rainforests. But be prepared for a bumpy ride – Gerard will risk everything to restore his reputation and be recognised as more than just the family’s wild card…
This exciting new chapter for the Wilde family brings with it an innovative new way to play video slot games. With an expanding reel that increases in size, and with new features as you advance through ten levels, this provides a much more obvious sense of progression through the game.
As a veteran player this represents story advancement and gives you a different way to play than you’ll be used to. If you’re a beginner to video slots, however, this will also provide you with the means to learn how these types of games work, adding features and more paylines to help you get used to the overall mechanics of traditional video slot games.
When you start playing Gerard’s Gambit and first set off on your journey, your first reel will be a simple 3×1 setup with one payline. To progress on from Level 1, you’ll have to complete your first objective alongside Gerard, unravelling the mystery of the reel itself and creeping ever closer to the ultimate treasure. Each level you complete will provide you with new targets, additional symbols, and extra bonus features, to keep you and Gerard on your toes. Every two levels will also see the reel itself expand and send you to your next destination around the globe. The reel will change to a 3×2 at Level 3, a 3×3 at Level 5, a 4×3 at Level 7, and finally a 5×3 at Level 9.
On each winning spin, you have the option to gamble those winnings, should you be feeling as daring as Gerard himself. You’ll be able to select one of three different gamble features that can multiply your winnings by up to x10.
If you choose the multiplier wheel, the wheel will spin and land on one of one of a few different results. If you manage to win and land on a multiplier, it will multiply your winnings by x2, x4, x6, x8, or x10, depending on which one the wheel landed on.
For the Hi-lo gamble option, you’ll be presented with one randomly selected card, face up. You then simply have to guess whether the next card will be higher or lower for a x2 multiplier, and then higher or lower than that card for a x4.
When playing the Coin Flip gamble, you will choose heads or tails three times. Each concurrent and correct guess will add x2 to the multiplier for your win, up to x8.
Starting from Level 3, you can trigger a Re-Spin by landing 2 Wild symbols on the reels. Those Wilds will then become sticky for the Re-Spin. Once you hit Level 4, you can re-trigger that Re-Spin if you land another Wild.
Free Spin Scatters
On Levels 6, 8 and 10, you will get the chance to unlock the thrilling Free Spins round. During the Free Spins round, all Wild Symbols that land will become sticky. You can earn five Free Spins by landing 1 Free Spin Scatter on Level 6, 2 Free Spins Scatters on Level 8, and 3 on Level 10. Each extra Scatter that lands during the Free Spins will add one extra spin to the round, too.
During Levels 5, 7, and 9, instead of the Free Spins Scatters being active, you’ll be able to land the Bonus Scatters. On Level 5, a single Bonus Scatter can land on reel 2, and will award a x20 multiplier to the bet payout. Level 7 offers an extra Bonus Scatter opportunity, which can land on reel 3 which can then offer a x60 bet payout. On Level 9, another Bonus Scatter can land, taking the total to 3 Scatters and the potential multiplier to x100!
With so much to discover, and with great riches to find, having the wily Gerard Wilde at your side is sure to make this a journey you’ll never forget.
