Enter the spooky season with The Wild Class Published:
fri 1 oct 2021
There are few fans of horror and comedy horror movies who don’t have a soft spot for the 1980s. That was the decade that gave us such classics as A Nightmare on Elm Street, An American Werewolf in London, and Friday the 13th, not to mention more lighthearted fare such as Teen Wolf and Ghostbusters. While plenty of other great comedy horrors have been released in the decades that have gone by since then, the 1980s were particularly special. And that’s why the latest Play’n GO
release for Halloween pays homage to the 1980s in a comedy horror slot called The Wild Class.
The Wild Class
The Wild Class is a lot more Teen Wolf than it is Friday the 13th. This is a five-reel slot that is set in the year 1983. Three university seniors – Chris the swot, Jess the cheerleader, and Mike the jock – all seem pretty normal, but that’s only in the daytime. When the clock strikes midnight, their animal natures take over, and the three seniors transform into werewolves with an appetite for their fellow classmates.
This game takes place in an impressively animated fairground environment as darkness begins to fall. The background shows an illuminated Ferris wheel taking its passengers for a spin, various game booths, and a rollercoaster in the distance. Symbols on the reels include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K, and A, as well as the three main characters, each of whom stands a full reel high. The characters act as paying symbols when they appear in human form, and when they appear as werewolves, they serve as wilds.
No tribute to the 1980s comedy-horror genre would be complete without a suitably synth-rich soundtrack, and The Wild Class hasn’t overlooked that point. You’ll soon be tapping your feet as you play, and if you turn up the volume, you’re sure to hear a wolf or two howling at the moon from time to time.
Full Moon Feature
A special Full Moon feature will enhance your wins whenever you get a full stack of the same symbol on a reel. The win multiplier will increase by +1 for each full symbol stack, so get a full stack on each reel, and your wins will be multiplied by the maximum of x6. If only all full moons were so generous.
Blood Moon Spins
The Wild Class has a special Wolves scatter symbol in play. Land three, four, or five of those on the reels at the same time, and you’ll trigger a Blood Moon Spins feature in Fury, Carnage, or Rampant mode, respectively. When this happens, a number of human symbols (equivalent to the number of scatters which triggered the feature) will be transformed into their werewolf counterparts. You’ll then enjoy seven Blood Moon Spins with those wild wolves in play.
All of that would be enough to make Blood Moon Spins a feature well worth waiting for, but it gets even better. First, the win multiplier carries over from spin to spin, so you won’t have to worry about a x6 multiplier resetting for the next Blood Moon spin. In addition, every scatter symbol that appears during this part of the game will give you an extra free spin. This makes it possible to enjoy up to 30 free spins and for you to win up to 6,666 times your bet!
Another Spooky Slot
“We wanted to add another Halloween type title to our portfolio as Happy Halloween was released in 2015,” said Charlotte Miliziano, who is Head of Games at Play’n GO. “’80s films like A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th are making the rounds on Netflix, so we thought it was about time to add another spooky slot to our repertoire. Plus, we’re big fans of ’80s music!”
