Slot players’ quest for a slot game with relatively high payouts may end up with Wild Melon. Wild Melon, which was launched in 2015 and has a fruit theme, is a product of a Valletta-based games developer named Play’n Go. Wild Melon is in the developer’s Wild series, which includes games such as Wild Blood, Deuces Wild, and Wild North Slot Machine.
The casino game’s name “Wild Melon” is synonymous with the brand’s logo, which is a halved soggy watermelon. Wild Melon players aim at matching fruity winning combinations, ranging from two of a kind to three of a kind; however, the players can still win if a lone halved watermelon shows up.
Can you tame the Wild Melon?
The reels and rows in Wild Melon are set in a 3X2 grid. In Wild Melon, fruits solely symbolize the winning combinations, unlike in slot games like Million Cents, where there are supplementary numbers. Wild Melon symbols comprise of the following: a halved watermelon; a ripe orange; and three sets of red cherries ranging from a lone berry, a bunch of two berries, and a bunch of three berries.
After Wild Melon loads, players bypass the routine notification (about Wild Melon being both the wild symbol and substituting for the game’s symbols) by clicking “Continue”, use the respective +/- buttons to set the coin value and active coins, and then hit “Spin”. Coin values in Wild Melon, which has nine pay lines, can be set at $0.50, $1.00, or $5.00. Players can use 1 coin, 2 coins, or 3 coins. The minimum bet in Wild Melon is $0.50, a result of the lowest value on the 1st coin. Using the highest coin value ($5.00) and 3 coins equals a maximum bet of $15.00.
These are the Wild Melon payouts for one coin, two coins, and three coins, respectively. A lone halved watermelon offers X2, X4, and X6. Two halved watermelons give X5, X10, and X15. A set of different red cherries—in form of a lone berry, two berries, and three berries—offer X5, X10, and X15. Three of a kind (with lone berries) red cherries offer X10, X20, and X30. Three of a kind (with paired berries) offers X20, X40, and X60. Three of a kind (a triad of berries) offers X50, X100, and X150.
A set of three oranges gives X100, X200, and X300. A set of three halved watermelons, regardless of their position on the Wild Melon pay line, offers X200, X500, and X1000. However, if the three halved watermelons are lined up, the players will be offered X1000, X2500, and X10000.
A html5 classic game, Wild Melon has a likeable software but the background sound comprises of sound effects mixed with winning sounds.
