Wild Antics Slot is an insect themed slot from Blueprint Gaming – the people behind Slots O’ Gold– with a lot of fun “antics” on offer for the player who likes their games with a happy go lucky tone and plenty of juicy extras.
The player is transported into an ant’s world with some seriously good graphics; these wouldn’t look out of place in an animated movie on the big screen they are pristine and colourful. Here a cast of insect characters are at peril thanks to a dastardly aardvark who is on their trail.
The upbeat feeling of the game is partially down to the brilliant music which makes you feel like you’re playing with a cinema soundtrack; it makes a foot-tapping fun background to play.
Wild Antics is a 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 pay-lines slot game that beats even the Wild Wild West slot on the crazy soundtrack front.
The icons of play are quite naturally a goofy set of friendly-looking insects who are the big boys in terms of value. There is a big blue caterpillar, a kooky ladybird, a cross-eyed snail and the Wild Antics logo. The lower value icons are the Ace through 10 of the card deck. This is a bright game (not as bright as the DJ Wild slot machine, but then that is brighty bright).
The game’s Wild is a blue ant (Adam) in a flower; he substitutes for all symbols except the bonus icons. Wild Antics also has five rather enticing Bonus icons, four of these are a different type of ant – a worker, soldier, colonel and most importantly a queen and the fifth Wild is that persistent aardvark. This is a slot with enough interesting extras to keep you in the game and spinning.
The game comes with a nifty Autoplay function for the gamer who likes to take it easy on the reels and simply watch your winnings roll in.
Wild Antics’ bonuses are unlocked by landing the aardvark on reel 1 and 3 with the addition of one of the different ant bonus buttons on reel 5 – this will pretty much give you the keys to the ant kingdom with 4 fun-packed features at your fingertips.

Starting with the best of all, there’s the Queen Ant Colossal Roaming Wilds – here you get a free spin with a colossal roaming Wild which moves and expands across the reels.
The Colonel Ant Expanding Roaming Wilds gives a free spin with Wilds laterally roaming across the reels while the bonus is on and, if you get more than one in the same position, then the Wild expands over the reel – bigger better fun!
There is also the Soldier Ant Multiplying Roaming Wild. Here you get your free spin and if you land a Wild during this mode and these roam the reels unless you land another Wild in the same position as your first they turn into either a x2 or even better, a x5 multiplier.
And last but not least is the Worker Ant Roaming Wilds- like the other bonus ant offerings you get a free spin and any Wilds landed turning into roaming Wilds during the mode.
And there’s more; Blueprint Gaming have really gone for it when it comes to extras. So after the bonus free spin you can also get an extra treat with a randomly triggered Jet Pack Antics bonus too.
Packing some extra fun
The Jet Pack Bonus is a welcome addition to the game. Here the main dude, Adam the Ant, pops up during the base game to bring some welcome bonuses to the player in the form of four different ant themed modes.
You could be the lucky recipient of a Aardvark Antics which randomly makes reels turn wild and what’s more this can bring a whopping 40 extra win lines into your game- now these critters are starting to seem a lot more friendly. Colossal Antics makes a bunch of kindly ants enter the reels and award some generous colossal Wilds appear on the reels. Wild Antics- you’ve guessed it – makes wilds. Frantic Antics re-arranges the icons on the reels to make wins- neat!
This game is great. I really loved its great graphics, sound and perky upbeat critters but mostly I loved all the extras that this game throws generously at the player. This is a game which deserves a fan base and I reckon it’s gonna get one!
