As the name “Manhattan Goes Wild” shows, this online game is set during the 1920s Manhattan, New York; in the wake of World War One, the happy-go-lucky Manhattanites desires were in overdrive, ranging from a taste for vividly decorated architecture and a vibrant dressing sense to a skyscraper boom to partying to consumerists. Twelve symbols (“W” wild, Bugsy, Betty, female singer, vintage car, earring, champagne bottle, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five side by side winning combinations.
Manhattan Goes Wild Game Characteristics
Manhattan Goes Wild has a partitioned cream 5X3 grid, with golden smudges; set on a gray-and-golden vintage frame that is propped up by two silver sculptures on either side, the grid is embedded on a golden cityscape. There are 243 winning ways, thirteen symbols, 15 total bets, sticky and collectible symbols, regular symbols that become wilds, special special features, free games, respins, and the self-adjusting payouts range from $0.01 to $500.
Manhattan Goes Wild has two special symbols and eleven ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the full-time wild-and-substitute is a golden-and-black “W” wild; and the free spins-unlocking feature is a golden-and-purple “scatter” art deco collage, with a red cocktail on the foreground.
The colorful ordinary symbols: a smiling golden-haired Caucasian man called Bugsy dressed in black and white; a blue-eyed blonde called Betty; a red-lipped female singer beside a retro microphone; a purple vintage car on a portico; a worn emerald cut blue diamond earring; a green-and-golden champagne bottle popped open; a red-and-golden A; a purple-and-golden K; a blue-and-golden Q; a green-and-golden J; and a turquoise-and-golden 10.
The Manhattan Goes Wild total bets: $0.10 (minimum total bet), $0.20, $0.30, $0.40, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $10.00, $25.00, $50.00, $70.00, and $100.00 (maximum total bet).
Based on the $100.00 bet, these are the Manhattan Goes Wild payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. “W” wild, or Mister Bugsy, or Miss Betty pays $30.00, $100.00, and $500.00. The microphone pays $20.00, $70.00, and $300.00. The vintage car pays $20.00, $60.00, and $250.00. The earring, or champagne bottle pays $20.00, $50.00, and $200.00. A, or K pays $10.00, $40.00, and $180.00. And Q, or J, or 10 pays $10.00, $40.00, and $150.00.
Although rare, over three art deco collages unlock the collectible symbols-related Manhattan freespins that have six collage-like meters—marked with (the rewards for filling the meters) two +3 spins and four +1 spins. Either Mr Bugsy or Miss Betty are transformed into golden wild statues at random; the two characters can also appear full-bodied together on the grid, thus triggering a respin that converts them into golden statues. Manhattan Goes Wild’s non-progressive jackpot is X2025, which ($100X2025) is theoretically $202,500.00.
The Manhattan Goes Wild software is good. The html5 game features include: a six-month-long game history, shows the numbers of ways won, keypad guide, left/right-hand mode, fast mode, 19 languages, 100+ currencies, and 10-1000 automated rounds that can be preset to stop after either a specified win limit or between -75% and +500% balance decrease/increase.
The ambient background: jazz music loop. Sounds effects: tinkling, chinking coins, and crackling firework display. The daytime golden metropolis changing to a nightly neon-lit cityscape aside; the animated 3D graphics include glowing and glittering symbols, colorful fireworks during respins, moving bank cloud and cruising airship, and Bugsy and Betty turning into golden statues.
