Wild Symbol Variations
There was a time when the only thing a Wild symbol on a slot machine would do is to stand in for any other symbol, but as slot machines have been improved and revamped over the years the age old slot game reel symbols have been given more advanced features so to bring you bang up to date on what they all can do to enhance your game play we are pleased to present to you our guide on Wild symbol variations.Standard Wild Symbols
The only task a standard Wild reel symbol does is to stand in for other reel symbols and by doing this it can transform an other wise losing combination into a winning one. These types of Wild symbols rarely stand in for scatter or bonus symbols, just standing in for the normal symbols found on a slot machine.Wild Multiplier Symbols
A Wild Multiplier symbol has two tasks, the first is to stand in for any other reel symbol (but not usually the scatter or bonus symbols) and also to boost the standard payouts of any winning combination it helps to complete. Often if you get two of them in a combination then the multiplier value is higher than just getting one of them in any combination, this information will be found on the slot games pay table.Wild Random Multiplier Symbols
These types of Wild symbols will stand in for any other symbol (but not usually the Scatters or Bonus symbols) but they will offer a random multiplier amount, once the reels have stopped spinning then any combination containing the Wild Random Multiplier symbol will have the multiplier value revealed.
