Wild Tome of the Woods is a slot game about intelligent animals who can conjure up magical potions, golden wilds and the possibility of landing a top payout of 1,000x your bet.

The key elements that define the game are the wild transformation ability and the bulkier than the usual reel set of four rows and six reels.

On the other hand, there aren’t too many symbols on the paytable and there is a felt absence of a bonus/scatter symbol. This makes Wild Tome of the Woods simple and for that matter, totally likeable.

I think that Quickspin has decided to approach this release with the philosophy of “less is more” and in my view, it befits the theme quite well towards an interesting gaming experience.

Theme and Graphics

Quickspin’s graphic designers take us to a deep nook in the forest whose animals have an apparent bent to the ancient sciences.

The artwork is dedicated and gives Wild Tome of the Woods an original appearance. For that matter, there is an immediate appeal that has made me want to see what magical things may shake out from the reels.

The symbols are not animated but the winning combinations get a due treatment by golden stardust and a cool lighting effect. A peaceful soundscape created by a lyre and flute melody, the sparkling of crystals and warbling of birds is just what the game needs to complete an enchanting effect.

To summarize, I’ve been trying to find a single thing that I don’t like about the overall look and feel, but haven’t been able to.

Extra Features

Wild Tome of the Woods has only one extra feature and maybe you can tell what it is by scoping out the title again.

  • Wild Tome

Basically, that heavy, leather-bound tome is the game’s transformation symbol. When it lands on the reels it selects a random standard symbol and transforms it into a Wild.

In addition to this ability, there is a standard Wild symbol that can land on the reel set and interact with the other symbols and those that have become transformed into Wilds.

  • Feature Summary

There is a good reason why the paytable has only six symbols. Fewer symbols warrant partial or full stacks of matching symbols to land on the reels to fill up the reel set.

With the help of the Wild Tome, the game mechanics can trigger winning outcomes across multiple paylines, consisting of up to six matching symbols. In some cases, this can mean delicious wins.

Bets and Payouts

Quickspin has pulled a decent stretch of betting options. You can play the game with as little as 25p per spin or make it a high-stakes adventure by betting $10.00 or more.

The 26 paylines are definitely an oddity. Quickspin could have built a multi-payline slot with the 4×6 layout but again, they’ve kept things simple and to a great effect.

In terms of payouts, you can land winning outcomes between 0.10x and 5x your bet. These figures may not seem too enticing and have to be seen through the potential of the symbol transformation feature.

The payouts go as follows:

  • Green potion: 0.10x, 0.15x, 0.25x, 0.5x
  • Orange potion: 0.10x, 0.15x, 0.25x, 0.75x
  • Red potion: 0.10x, 0.20x, 0.5x, 0.75x
  • Lizard: 0.15x, 0.25x, 0.75x, 1.25x
  • Fox: 0.25x, 0.5x, 1.25x, 2.5x
  • Owl: 0.25x, 0.5x, 1.5x, 4x
  • Wild: 0.25x, 0.5x, 1.5x, 5x


Wild Tome of the Woods is definitely unique for its rare features and gameplay specs. I’ve enjoyed the game multiple times and always felt at home with the theme and graphics. The gameplay is dynamic and the feature is only one – but gold.

High variance is a good choice for the volatility because of the payout structure. A medium volatility game would have meant a smaller payout potential through more frequent but considerably smaller amounts.

Overall, this is a fun game to play. Sometimes the Wild Tome feature can transform one or two symbols, sometimes five or more. The maximum payout of 1,000x your bet can be won when the entire reel set has been canvassed in Wilds. It’s all in the hands of the random number generator.
