The Wild Machine Slot Review
It’s all very Back to the Future on the shifting reels with the Doc balancing on a hoverboard. We suspect he sent Marty McFly to some new dimension to check how the Wild Machine video slot is received among UK players.
In case anything goes wrong with his time machine again, we’ve got you covered with the Wild Machine slot review where we look at all the main aspects of this science-themed online slot from the Pragmatic Play studios.

The Wild Machine Bonus Features
Although the reels, the backdrop and the Doc himself look a little nuts, the Wild Machine bonus features aren’t as crazy as they may seem. The best part is the Wonder Wheel which can award either instant cash or free spins with expanding reels and sticky wilds.
At any time, watch out for the crazy scientist pulling a level to add more madness to the reels. The Wild Machine will then turn from a regular 5×5 grid into a 1-3-5-7-5-3-1 arrangement allowing you to form a whopping 7-symbol winning combination.
The glowing sci-fi looking time machine is the wild symbol which stands in for all symbols, except scatters, to assist you in completing winning paylines.
You’ll come across many lab symbols on the reels, but the portal Scatter is the one that will transport you to the most important part of the Wild Machine game. Landing 3 of the same symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 will set off the alarm and you’ll be on your way to spin the Wonder Wheel.
Wonder Wheel Feature
Separated into 5 big chunks, the Wonder Wheel feature is your lucky ticket to some instant cash wins. Look closer and you’ll see that those 5 big chunks are separated into further segments, 25 in total, each holding an instant cash award.
Additionally, you’ll see 5 blue partitions on the wheels which act as the Wild Machine free spins feature.
Lucky you if the wheel pointer stops on one of the instant cash prizes because the wheel will carry on spinning allowing you to collect up to five cash prizes in total. If you, however, land the pointer on the free spins segment, you’ll have to pick between two different games:
Gold Foundry will fetch 8 free spins with expanding wild reels playable on a regular 5×5 grid. During this feature, each spin will randomly turn 2-5 reels wild for possible sensational wins.
Diamond Forge will deliver 5 free spins with sticky wilds. During the feature, the reels shift into a 1-3-5-7-5-3-1 layout with any wild symbols turning into sticky wilds, creating more and more potential wins. Reels 1, 4, and 7 stay wild until the feature ends.
The Wild Machine Jackpot
Let’s not make a big deal out of the Wild Machine progressive jackpot being missing from the game because you still have a good deal going here – a cheerful 7,000x your bet payout.
RTP and Volatility
Looking at the Wild Machine RTP of 96.52% and the risks level set to high, you can expect some decent payouts. For such a highly volatile slot, you’ll need to keep an eye on your budget and accept that the wins, while big, might not fall as often.
The Wild Machine on Mobile
The Wild Machine on mobile is smooth sailing. Designed to adjust easily to the smaller screen, you’ll find this scientific slot on many mobile casinos making it an ideal one for playing on the go.
