Wild O’Clock is one of Red Tiger’s most popular games, and was released in September 2020. This video slot is a superb display of the industry giant’s skills and definitely proves that they’ve got what it takes! This slot isn’t the trickiest to play, but it’s always good to have a guide when trying out a new game. Wild O’Clock has 30 paylines and 6 reels, with an RTP of 95.69% and a max win of 2079x your bet.
The game grid is set up simply and, true to form, so are the controls: you can place a bet of between 0.10 to 40.00 coins by clicking the stakes button below the reels, and either clicking the big yellow button for individual spins or diving right in and heading for the autospin button.
The autospin button might seem like the most convenient option, but spin cycles start at 50 and go up to 200; you can stop the reels whenever you like, but if you’re watching your wallet it’s a little too easy for this to get away from you. Thankfully, there is the option to limit your losses and wins and to stop the reels after hitting a win or a bonus feature. We always advise setting a loss limit to avoid overspending.
Finally, there’s a turbo button that lets you whizz through the 50-200 autospins, with only brief pauses when you score a payline.
The symbols in Wild O’Clock are all time themed and beautifully crafted in a range of tones from red to blue and embellished with gold. As with all new slot games, it pays to learn which symbols pay what. The highest value symbol is the red sundial, followed in descending order by the turquoise hourglass, green alarm clock, blue pocket watch, and purple clock face. The lowest value symbols are the card suits, which are designed as multicolored gemstones: a red spade, a turquoise heart, a green diamond, and a blue club.
Special symbols include the sun-and-moon wild symbol, which carries the same value as the sundial; the golden Clock Spins symbol which acts as the scatter; and finally a long, animated grandfather clock which is the stretched or super wild symbol.
Wild O’Clock’s most sensational ‘tock’ is the special feature Lucky 12 O’Clock, which is built into the main game; this is the stretch wild that’s triggered on every twelfth spin. A clock viewing window stands above the reels and lets you know which spin you are on between one and twelve; every time the number XII (twelve) pops up, the reels start to spin wildly until a random number of stretch grandfather clocks either bypass or land on the reels. The super wilds fill an entire reel and have the same value as the sundial or sun-and-moon wild symbols so three or more stretch wilds across the board could clock you some serious cash!
Landing three Clock Spins scatters across three reels triggers the exciting Free Clock Spins feature, which automatically grants you a clocking 12 free spins! During the free spins, there are bonus extras in play, like random super wilds and the opportunity to win multipliers for every wild symbol that you land. Multipliers apply to the entire game grid for the full 12 spins, and are displayed in the top right corner of the reels. The more wilds you land, the more chances you have of striking the big time with a multiplier of 8x. The final spin is also the twelfth spin, which triggers the Lucky 12 O’Clock bonus games. This means that landing between one and six super wilds could get you numerous paylines, which all get treated to the same multiplier! This leads to some pretty big payouts.
Like all wilds, the sun-and-moon icon can be substituted for any symbols except for the scatter; unlike most wilds, however, during the free spins feature they can open up at random to reveal a multiplier of between two and eight. Suddenly a simple pay line can become a big payday!
Wild O’Clock is available to play on mobile, desktop or laptop. It is supported on iOS, Windows, Linux and Android. Recommended browsers include Safari, Chrome, Edge, Firefox and others.
This is a highly volatile video slot, so make sure to use the auto-spinner setting to keep your bank looking healthy and to avoid any big losses. It’s easy to get carried away and get your clock cleaned out by a run of bad luck. Don’t come off second hand – pay attention to minute details before clicking that spin button again!
