Anyone hankering after a little good old-fashioned nostalgia and the days of the one-armed bandit fruit machine will love Inspired’s Wild Winner slot game. Veteran players of online slot machines almost certainly started out in land-based casinos feeding tokens in the slot and pulling down that lever, but today, even though you may love to play slots online, you can still go back a little in time with this easy-paced, simple format game.

Game Overview

For those with a taste for old-school gaming, Wild Winner has a lot going for it. Its generous bonuses make up for its relatively low return to player (RTP,) which is a little under industry norms at 94.5%. It has medium to high volatility and is great for beginners or even experienced players looking to take a trip down memory lane.

How To Play

Wild Winner has a 5×4 reel, 30 payline format and features the classic symbols of cherries, oranges, plums, bells, 7s and a BAR. There’s both a base and a bonus game that run with wilds and bonus symbols appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. When there are only one or two bonus symbols in view, they transform into wilds with multipliers between 2x and 5x. During the base game, any of the winning reels featuring these icons can multiply.

The wilds also double up as scatters and substitute for all the other regular symbols. Watch out for the bells, which pay out up to 25x your total bet and BARs, which pay up to 10x and are the most lucrative symbols. The red 7 pays out up to 6x your wager, while blue and yellow 7s pay out up to 4x. Each of the fruit symbols pays a maximum of 2x your total bet.

In the bonus mini-game, any winning line will be multiplied by the multiplier or multipliers above. There are no more free spins of the reels, but the total prize on offer makes the bonus game interesting.

If you land three bonus symbols, you trigger up to 30 free spins. If you’re feeling lucky, the game also has a “gamble” option where you can take a risk and double your wins or lose all your free spins. As online casino games go, this is not the most sophisticated, but there is real fun in its old-school simplicity.


With a purple background and juicy fruit cherries, orange and plum symbols, the feel of Wild Winner’s graphics is completely retro. Throw in some colorful 7s and BARs and it’s a real throwback to the good old days of the classic fruit machine. Even without animated features, Wild Winner’s is thoroughly enjoyable. It provides something deeply familiar to many players of online slots and is a game you will want to play over and over.


Wild Winner’s features include its wilds and bonus symbols, which can be activated throughout play. It also has a left-hand play option, which will be appreciated by the southpaws. If you’re looking to pick up the pace of the game a little, there’s a turbo option. Another of the game’s attractions is its gamble feature for those looking for a little more excitement and who want to take a double-or-quits risk.

If you find yourself right out of credits, Wild Winner has an automatically activated spin chance feature that gets you back into the game.

Bonuses and Jackpots

Although there is no progressive jackpot in this game, you can boost your odds of winning by taking advantage of the slots bonus rounds, wild rounds and free spins. Despite the game’s low RTP and lack of jackpot, it does have a potential for decent wins, so don’t be deterred by the low-key, modest nature of this vintage-style game.

Similar Games

For anyone overcome with nostalgia at the thought of fruits, bells and BARS, there are many other games in this genre to keep those old memories alive. Try Sevens and Bars, a Vegas-inspired, red, white and blue online casino slot game that offers some great winning potential. If it’s the good, clean, wholesomeness of the old-style games that bewitched you, give the enchanting Secret Garden slot a go with its magical rabbits, squirrels, fountains and wheelbarrow graphics. Back to the classic symbols, you could also try Fruit Fiesta, Fruit Mania or Spin ‘n Win. You can’t get more clearly descriptive than that.
