Wild Gambler 2: Arctic Adventure – the sequel to the smash hit Wild Gambler – is a five-reel, 20-payline Slot that takes its younger sibling on a trip to the frozen tundra! Blending the fast paced action of Slots with the strategy of roulette, it builds on the innovative Lock & Spin feature where you can now multiply your potential prizes by up to 5x!

The wild symbol, represented by the grizzly polar bear, can substitute for any other symbol (except for the Free Spins scatter) to make the best possible winning combination. If you land five-of-a-kind there’s also a separate payout with a huge coin jackpot.

That’s only the tip of the iceberg on this Slot, as finding three or more Free Spins scatter simultaneously anywhere on the reels during the main game triggers the Free Spins feature. The number of symbols found determines the number of free spins awarded:

  • Three scatters = seven free spins
  • Four scatters = 12 free spins
  • Five scatters = 20 free spins

Best of all, all wilds from the triggering spin are locked and any new wilds that appear during the feature are automatically locked for the remaining free spins. Any wilds that appear underneath wild symbols that have already been locked will increase their multiplier, just like in the main game when Lock & Spin is active.

Remember, during free spins, the reels are spun automatically using the same bet per payline as on the spin that activated the feature.

Now, more on the great addition that is Lock & Spin Mode. Available during the main game too, it increases your chances of getting wins. You’ll see straight way from playing Wild Gambler 2: Arctic Adventure that there are two spin buttons: a regular spin and a Lock & Spin button.

When pressed, Lock & Spin holds the wild symbols currently on the reels and only spins the other symbols. The total bet in this mode is always higher than the total bet in the normal spin mode.

As well as Lock & Spin you also have access to Modifying Wilds, which means any symbol can be turned into a wild symbol by clicking on it. You can also change the multiplier on a wild symbol. All wins resulting from winning combinations in which wilds helped are multiplied by these wild multipliers. Adjusting the wild multipliers can be done in two ways: by repeatedly clicking on a wild symbol, or by using the + and – buttons appearing on a wild when the mouse cursor is moved over it. The lowest possible multiplier is 1x and the highest one is 5x!

If you don’t want to use this feature, press the regular spin button instead of the Lock & Spin button, and any wilds and modified wilds will spin off the reels along with the other symbols.

More wilds are a good thing, right? So if you have a favourite wild layout, Wild Gambler 2: Arctic Adventure allows you to save it as a custom layout and load it any time you’d like to use it. This functionality is found in the ‘options’ menu.

Last but not least, there’s also an Auto Lock mode for you take advantage of. When enabled, all wilds that appear on the reels are held in place when using Lock & Spin. New wilds that appear on the reels are automatically locked in place and kept during the subsequent spins – meaning way more chances to land profitable combinations.

If Auto Lock is disabled, only the wilds you select are carried forward in the Lock & Spin mode.

Overall Wild Gambler 2: Arctic Adventure gives you massive opportunities to control your playstyle with the Lock & Spin feature and huge win potential from multiplier wilds. Plus, with a beautiful Arctic theme and cartoon-style characters, there’s lots of fun to be had too.
