Playtech Wild Gambler Lock & Spin Only Pokies
Online pokies are generally games based on luck alone. You spin the reels and the game does the rest. Many Australian players like casino games in which they do more than just initiate the game and wait for the outcome. For them leading software providers like Microgaming and Playtech have developed online pokies with interactive features. This article describes Playtech online pokies from the Wild Gambler series with the Lock & Spin feature.
Wild Gambler online pokie has an African Safari theme with symbols like zebra, leopard, rhino and flamingo. The lion is the wild symbol. The second online pokie is subtitled Arctic Adventure and features polar animals like caribou, walrus, white fox and penguin. The wild symbol is the polar bear. Both Wild Gambler and Arctic Adventure are live at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
The Lock & Spin feature functions in the same way in both online pokies. To start with, you can lock any of the wild symbols that land on the screen. The locked symbols will be held fixed for the next spin. There is an additional price to be paid that depends on the number of wilds being locked and their location on the reels. If the wild symbol is more likely to lead to a payout in the next spin the cost of locking that wild will be more. When you lock a wild the lion or polar bear gets caged on the screen. The Play Your Way feature takes the locked wilds concept one step ahead. You can change any symbol on the reel to a locked wild symbol with a multiplier of up to 5x. The cost for such conversions will obviously be much more.
Both the online pokies have free spins features that are somewhat different. In Wild Gambler the free spins are triggered through five meerkat symbols at the bottom of the screen. You will be awarded 8 free spins. The Arctic Adventure free spins feature is triggered by landing three or more Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels. You will be awarded up to 20 free spins depending on the number of triggering symbols. In both online pokies the wild symbols in the triggering spin will get locked without any additional cost. Also the wild symbols that may appear during the free spins will similarly get locked for the remainder of the feature at no extra cost.
