Thanksgiving is not complete without the traditional turkey and while this custom does not date back to the Pilgrims of Plymouth, who created the foundations of modern day America, the Thanksgiving turkey is a core component of the holiday in most American households. The turkey has come to be known internationally as the symbol of Thanksgiving, and Wild Turkey slots brings a tribe of the animals to the reels while giving you the chance to win big.
The game, developed by NetEnt, is themed upon a wild tribe of turkeys including a warrior, a shaman, a leader, and a healer, all of whom can help you land enormous payouts.
The game format is a typical 5-reel, 20-payline slot, with wild cards that can land stacked during the bonus spins. Behind the reels is a background filled with thatch built huts in a forest setting, the reels are framed with hanging vines and the paylines are marked with carved square stones. In the background, you will hear the tribal drums playing to keep with the atmosphere.
The lower value symbols are royals with the values of 10, J, Q, K and A; that are engraved into the stones. High value symbols are the members of the tribe themselves; a brown turkey brandishing a spear is the lowest value character, followed by a higher value white female turkey adorned in a blue headdress, earrings and a tribal column necklace. Above her is the turkey shaman, with a skull on his head and dressed in green embroidery. Next up the line is the orange and brown turkey, a tribal warrior, with a bone piercing in his beak, and the highest value symbol is the leader, who wears a bright headdress and pendant.
The game features wild cards, with a bronze turkey face, but also wild stacks that are pieces of a picture, and when you collect them all, they then reveal themselves to be a large turkey totem. The stacked wild cards can give you bonus spins that help you win bonus payouts.
Wild Turkey does not have any separate bonus symbols but it does offer free spins, which are triggered by the wild symbol. Landing three, four or five wild symbols will award you 15, 30 or 60 free spins, respectively. The free spins come with stacked wild symbols, and when a reel is fully covered by a stacked wild, two additional spins are awarded.
There are 10 bet levels with 20 fixed bet lines, and coin values ranging from 0.01 to 0.50. The minimum bet you can make is 0.01 and the maximum is 100.00, with the maximum coin jackpot at 800,000.
