Wild Orient


Microgaming brings a new game for us on May 2016: Wild Orient. This title is full of different animals from East and Southeast Asia, the titular “Orient”. The visual design of this game is all about the animals, so the reel symbols feature critters like elephants, Bengal tigers, monkeys, pandas, and the like.

The artwork looks good, if a little bit conventional. Overall, the notion of making a game themed around animals strikes me as unoriginal and uninspired. The “twist” of the animals being from Asia just makes it look like the sort of thing that appears after a burned-out brainstorming session. I can imagine how it went: “-Animals? –No, too boring. –Asian animals? –Well, that just may work. Let’s get on to it.”

The actual game does have a bit of a twist to it. It does away with the traditional payline system, replacing it with one where you get combinations based on whether the same symbols show up on adjacent reels, from the one on the far left. This system gives players a grand total of 243 ways to win.


Microgaming is a company forever tied to the beginings of the online casino industry, claiming to have launched the first one ever in 1994, the year they were founded. This company has a reputation for quality products, and they seem determined to continue showing up in the history of the industry. Microgaming holds the distinction of having paid the second-largest progressive jackpot online. The lucky winner of the thirteen million pounds was Jonathon Heywood, a British soldier. He won the Mega Moolah jackpot on October 2015, on

Regrettably, the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot won’t be available for Wild Orient, making us less excited about this Microgaming upcoming title.

How to Play It

This game has a simple and uncomplicated interface, just like the overwhelming majority of virtual slot machines out there. On the bottom of the screen, we have from right to left: the regular spin/stop button, the autoplay button, an indicator that displays your win amounts, a control to set your bet level, and a balance indicator. This shouldn’t be anything too unfamiliar for a slots machine player.

There is, however, one UI element which is different from most video slot machines out there. On the bottom of each reel, there is a respin button. Hitting that button lets you spin that specific reel again, for a price.

Special Features

This game’s biggest selling point is its respin feature. As I’ve aid earlier, each reel has its own respin button below it, which lets you spin that reel again. Sure, you have to pay for it, but it does seem like an interesting way to gain a little bit of extra control over your game. Judicious use of this feature could translate into bigger wins, making this feature something very interesting, worth trying out.

The game also has some more… conventional special features. The most remarkable one is the free spin feature. By landing a combination of scatter symbols, players can enter free spin mode.

The one thing that sets this apart from other regular free spin features is the fact that earnings are tripled during free spin mode. It does seem that respins won’t be available during free spin mode, which is a shame, considering how much players might want to access that feature whilst triplicating the size of their wins.

Maximum Payouts

This info still hasn’t been released, it seems. We don’t think it’ll be anywhere near the massive payouts of progressive jackpots like Microgaming’s own Mega Moolah.


This game features a quite unoriginal visual theme, the sort that makes you think of someone’s poor attempt at being original, without thinking too much. Its features seem very uninteresting, except for the respin buttons.

Letting player respin a reel gives the game a bit of extra depth, and making it paid adds a new layer of incentives to it. All in all, Wild Orient is a fairly unremarkable game with a slightly interesting feature to make it almost stand out. We might try it upon release, though we’re not sure.
