These Animal-Themed Online Slots Are Where The Wild Things Play

Written By Susan Brady on November 24, 2017

During that prost-prandial period after gorging on a Thanksgiving meal with family and friends, check out two new games now available at NJ online casinos.

Wild Run, from gamemaker NextGen, features animals from the African savannah and one very unique bonus feature. Or if you’d prefer unicorn sheep and flying pigs—yes, you read that right—then Pigasus & Friends may just do the trick.

Let’s take a look at what these games have to offer.

Wild Run

Get on a roll and spin to win


Wild Run is an Africanthemed slot which opens to a gorgeously rendered sunset on the savannah, replete with acacia trees, giraffes, and elephants. The five reels utilize wild animals, including the Cape Buffalo, rhinos, cheetahs and elephants, as well as card suits (diamond, heart, spade and club).

Spin the reels and you’ll find that any win kicks in the On-A-Roll feature, which consists of two levels.

EaWild Runch level will see added Wilds and increased multipliers. Losing spins move you down a level or end the feature. Winning spins move you up toward the trigger for the Free Spins bonus game. All a bit complicated, but just know it’s free spins and wins on your original bet.

The Free Spins feature sees the number of Wilds increased and they come with a 5x multiplier. You will spin until you’ve made four non-winning spins, which just might take awhile, making this one African savannah that you’ll want to visit.


The stats

  • 5 reels/243 ways to win
  • On A Roll feature
  • Free Spins bonus game with 5x Wilds

Pigasus & Friends

Head down to the farm with some unusual animals

With Pigasus & Friends, you’ll find a bit more humor with its silly looking characters: a blue unicorn sheep, three-headed calf, purple bird and Pigasus himself, a porcine character with wings.

This slot has your typical Wilds, as well as a Pick Me Wild bonus, which can increase the Wild multiplier from 2x to 10x.

There’s also a unique Red Hot Respin feature that is available when you get two of three bonus symbols. You can pay for the chance to respin one reel to get that third symbol to trigger the bonus. (However, you will pay dearly for that luxury, especially when you opt to do this more than once.)

Once the Free Spins Bonus kicks in, you’ll be given 2 – 4 lives. You spin and win until the Big Bad Wolf appears and steals a life. With each life stolen, the win multiplier does increase though, anywhere from 2x to 10x.

The stats

  • 5 reels/ 20 paylines
  • Wilds and Pick Me Wilds
  • Free Spins bonus game

  • Bets: $.20 to $50
  • RTP: 94.9%
  • Available at: SugarHouse
