The Wildlife Review

The main hero of The Wildlife is a press photographer, but he doesn't live a sweet life. The job gets him to every point of the Earth – one day he has to shoot a lion, the other he hunts for bears or looks out for American eagle.

When the fortune smiles on him, you will land multiple expanding wilds during the main game. Actually, the entire screen of wilds is not something rare in The Wildlife.

Play The Wildlife

The Wildlife is a video slot that features 5 reels – 4 symbols on the first, third and fifth and 3 elements on the rest. 50 lines are always active on default.

Land 3 to 5 same symbols starting from the leftmost reel and form a winning combination. All payoffs will sum up at the end of each spin. 20 to 30 winning combinations in the result of a single spin is a common thing.

The slot is provided with 10 regular symbols, wilds, and scatters, which will trigger free spins.

The autoplay will keep you free of clicking at the 'Spin' button all the time. Set limits or choose to play until free spins.

A gamble feature is not suggested.

You will bet between 50 cents and 25 dollars/euro per spin. However, online casinos may offer a different range.

Don't mistake this slot with Belatra's The Wildlife 2 with a tiger face on the logo.

These two slots make a big difference:

  • The RTP of The Wildlife is 96.15%, while The Wildlife 2 will return 92.15% (according to the producer's official statement).
  • The Wildlife 2 features 20 symbols against 18 in the original version.
  • A combination formed exclusively out of 5 scatters in The Wildlife 2 pays 10 times less than the same combination in the original slot.

The Wildlife has an excellent design: bright symbols, realistic animals, awesome animation. The gameplay is accompanied by African drums.

See the screenshots below.

The Wildlife Symbols, Wild, Scatter

  • Wild (a lion) substitutes any regular symbols when necessary and also forms combinations. Moreover, stacks of 4 wilds can move by the reels both in the main game and free spins. Quite often it covers 13 to 15 cells.
  • Scatter (an envelope) – 5 scatters anywhere at the screen will help you pocket 2500x your line bet. 3 envelopes will trigger free spins.

You will also land animals from different parts of the world on the reels.

The Wildlife free spins

The Wildlife features quite an unusual free spins mechanics. Probably, even unique. The photographer opens the envelope (a scatter) to find an image of an animal he has to shoot. The animal becomes an extra wild.

  • Initially, you get 15 free spins regardless of how many scatters have triggered the feature.
  • Free spins visually look the same as the main game.
  • The photograph lands on the central reel approximately in every second spin.
  • If you hit an extra wild during the same spin, it will expand for the entire reel. Multiple wilds are possible.
  • You can retrigger the feature multiple times.

We won 12500 credits by 50 credit bet during free spins.

Canadian Mobile version

The slot has been adapted for mobile devices powered by Android and iOS. The Wildlife mobile is a browser-play – no app needed. We recommend playing in Google Chrome.

Belatra's slots are available only in the landscape mode. All controls are placed to the right and the gaming field takes the rest 2/3 of the screen.


The Wildlife makes a mixed impression. On one hand, it is pretty exciting. On the other, we can't say how good wilds and stacks compensate for the low multipliers.


  • Reasonable RTP for such a game – 96.15%;
  • Frequent stacks;
  • Expanding extra wild.


  • Too low multipliers;
  • Too many active lines. As a result – high bets;
  • Low RTP.

According to Belatra, The Wildlife has an average variance.
