Wild Pride (October 2017) is a game park-themed video slot. Wild Pride is among the four video slots in Booming Games’ Wild gaming line; the other three are Wild Jester (May 2017), Wild Diamond 7X (2018), and Wild Cherries (November 2016). Silver Lion (December 2016) from Lightning Box Games, Royal Lion (2012) from High 5 Games, and Stellar Jackpots with Serengeti Lions (August 2017) from Lightning Box Games are rivals.
The collective noun for a group of lions is pride, which (possibly resulting from the interlocking lions) apparently inspired the name Wild Pride. Three of the Wild Pride symbols need two, three, four, or five winning combinations; seven symbols of Wild Pride require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Wild Pride Game Characteristics
Wild Pride has a 5X3 grid, 10 fixed pay lines, and ten Wild Pride symbols. These are the special symbols: the shadowy “Wild Pride” brand logo, featuring acacia trees and elephants at dusk, which is both the “Wild” and substituting symbol; and a close-up image of a wildebeest that is a free spins-offering “scatter”.
These are the eight Wild Pride ordinary symbols: a lion, a lioness, a zebra, a gazelle, a pink A, a green K, a turquoise-colored Q, and a blue J.
The Wild Pride “Bet per Line” options: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $10.00, and $20.00. Unlike many other Booming Games’ video slots, Wild Pride lacks diverse bet size options due to the non-adjustable pay lines. This means Wild Pride has one bet range only.
The players can opt for these Wild Pride total bets: $0.10 (minimum bet), $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $30.00, $50.00, $100.00, and $200.00 (maximum bet).
When the $200.00 maximum bet is staked, these are the respective Wild Pride payouts for two, three, four, and five winning combinations: the “Wild Pride” brand logo pays $100.00, $1000.00, $10000.00, and $100000.00; the gazelle pays $40.00, $200.00, $1500.00, and $3000.00; and the zebra pays $100.00, $400.00, $2000.00, and $5000.00.
The Wild Pride payouts for three, four, and five matching symbols are: the wildebeest pays $2000.00, $10000.00, and $40000.00; either the lion or the lioness pays $100.00, $1000.00, and $10000.00; the A gives $200.00, $1000.00, and $2000.00; the K offers $100.00, $500.00, and $1500.00; and either Q or J pays $40.00, $200.00, and $1000.00. The aforementioned payouts are doubled during the free games mode.
Three wildebeests offer ten free games. Whenever the lion and the lioness interlock, they activate the so-called Majestic Wins. According to the Wild Pride rules, these interlocking features offer X5 the staked amount during the regular game and X10 the staked amount during the free games mode; as such, the biggest regular game’s Majestic Win is $1000.00, while the biggest free game mode’s (note: it has a X2 feature that doubles all winnings) Majestic Win is (2000X2) $4000.00. Wild Pride has a $100000.00 non-progressive jackpot.
The Wild Pride software is good, but it does not have the typical 2-Way Pay and Gamble features. The graphics are awesome, ranging from the animated animal symbolism (especially the constricted pupils of the hunting lion’s eyes) to the savanna inhabited by wild animals silhouetted against the African sunset. The African beats, occasionally trumpeting elephant, and the croaking sound effects are on point.
