Wild Symbols Explained

One reel symbol you are sure to come across when you play slots online is the Standard Wild symbol, this can have several additional uses but the most common use of a Wild symbol is to stand in for any other reel symbol (but generally not the Scatter or Bonus symbols) and therefore it can help complete otherwise losing combinations and turn them into winning ones.

Sometime a Wild symbol is classed as a Wild Multiplier and as well as standing in for any other reel symbol it will also increase the value of any winning combination that is helps to complete by a multiple of that win, the details of how much the win is multiplied by will be found on the respective slot games pay table.

Another Wild symbol you will come across is an Expanding Wild, and whenever this special symbol spins in on one of the reels it will expand to cover all positions on the reel it spun in on, thus allowing for multiple winning combinations.

A Stacked Wild is a group of Wild symbols one of top of each other on the reel strips, and these could, when they spin in a certain way, cover all the positions visible on any one reel.

One of the new uses for a Wild symbol is as a Random Wild, and this will turn any one or more of the standard symbols into a Wild one completely at random. Another new Wild symbol is the Trailing Wild, this symbol can and does leave a trail when it spins in and all symbols in this trail then also become wild symbols.
