Wild Bazaar is a video slot from NetEnt with 5 reels, 4 rows and 26 paylines. Playable on all devices, this game was released in October 2018. Wild Bazaar can be played at NetEnt online casinos such as Casumo, Dunder or Mr Green.
Wild Bazaar doesn’t so much come with a classic theme you can easily categorise. Instead, we have a setting of a relatively modern oriental bazar that you might find anywhere in an Arab country. This particular rather colourful market stall appears to sell gems.
The theme is unique, oddly up-beat and even a little quirky in its details. The ventilator spinning away on the left-hand side will likely only blow hot, dusty air at you, but it also gives the slot a certain liveliness, which it would be otherwise be lacking because there aren’t any human or animal characters on the reels. Only chests and gems.
The gems are the low-value symbols, each paying out 40 coins for a win of 5-of-a-kind. Additionally, we get the treasure chests in red, green, pink and blue. Each of them pays out 150 coins for a 5-of-a-kind win. That makes things relatively easy.
The chests also function as bonus symbols and the wild are just big yellow things.
Once again, we get a typical NetEnt slot with set paylines, where you can adjust coins and bet level but not how many lines you want to play. The autoplay feature enables you to simply keep the reels spinning, which they do at a somewhat leisurely pace.
This slot doesn’t have a bonus feature that is altogether separate from the base game. Instead, collecting three chests of the same colour on one payline in a winning combination will trigger one of four Wild Spins features.
They way in which you activate bonus features in this game is quite unique. Whenever three chests of the same colour become part of a winning combination, the corresponding Wild Spins feature is activated. You will receive 3 wild spins for 3 chests, and one more for each additional chest that becomes part of a winning combination during the feature.
The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Wild Bazaar is 96.15%. That’s actually pretty average and considering the many times one of the Wild features is triggered, you will feel like a winner more often than not.
Indeed, thanks to the Colossal Wilds, we even had two Mega Wins in a row during a run of Wild Spins that ended up giving us six or seven free spins in total.
Wild Bazaar is an odd little game that has a surprisingly high entertainment value. It will keep you going for much longer than the theme and relatively simple gameplay may initially suggest. But the dancing chest and frequent Wild Spins keep you up on your funds and you won’t be bored anytime soon.
