Our expert rating
Ireland is a well-trodden source of inspiration, it seems, for slot game developers, but happily Well of Wilds Megaways doesn’t have a leprechaun or a pot of gold in sight.
Focusing more on a ‘luck of the Irish’ theme, Red Tiger Gaming has been able to put together a slot that doesn’t feel like a cliché or a pastiche – indeed, this July 2021 release is a sequel to its successful Well of Wishes title.

|117,649 ways to win
There are six main reels in Well of Wilds Megaways, though the actual number of symbols that is in play at any one time depends upon the vagaries of the Megaways system – however, at best, these can amount up to 117,649 ways to win.
There’s a maximum win of 10,500x your stake in this high volatility slot, though this is a game perhaps targeted at players on a lower budget – you can stake an amount between 0.10 and 10.00 per spin.
The RTP of Well of Wilds Megaways is 95.67%.
There are two main gameplay elements that have to be outlined in this Well of Wilds Megawaysreview. The first is the cascading reel set, which replaces all symbols from a winning combination with new ones – this may create new wins, and the process continues until you don’t have a winning combo in play.
There’s also a Lucky Coin wild symbol that can appear on the middle four reels, as well as a Well of Wilds modifier symbol – this can turn any two random symbols wild and hopefully set off a cascade of multiple wins.
The second area of focus must be the Lucky Spins round. This is triggered by the scatter symbol of the same name, with three scatters (nine free spins), four (12), five (15) and all six (18) paying out accordingly.
All wins during Lucky Spins earn a 1x multiplier, and this can be increased exponentially up to a maximum of 40x. Also, any symbol that is turned wild during a free spin remains that way for the rest of the round.
Attention also turns to the horizontal reel above your main set. Lucky Coins are collected here, and once you have five to your name, the Lucky Wishes feature is triggered. This free slot game’s wishing well will determine which special feature you are given – a Well of Wilds modifier, between three and six extra free spins, or a doubling of your current multiplier.
This is a classic Megaways slot that is augmented by cascading reels during your main gameplay.
However, the real heart of Well of Wilds Megaways is found in that bonus round, which features several different layers and a selection of ways to win – with plenty of upsides from a potential 10,500x maximum payout.
