This lonesome canyon may look desolate at first, but it’s actually home to a friendly group of wildlife, who live in fear of the wildest resident – an angrywildcat with razor-sharp claws! Don’t worry, though, you aren’t in any danger as you spin the reels, and the wildcat’s appearance is more lucky than worry-some, as he often heralds big wins!

About the Game
The 5 reels and 3 rows in Wildcat Canyon make a total of 25 win lines, the number of which the player can adjust to their liking. The backdrop to the reels is a lonely-looking canyon, with sand and cacti stretching into the distance towards a vast blue sky. It’s atmospheric, and sets the tone of the game nicely. On the reels, things are more animated and comical, with cartoon symbols including a red snake, a goat and a buzzard, all in startled poses (presumably upon seeing the wildcat of the title)!
Bonus features include:
- WILDS – it makes sense that the WILD symbol is the Wildcat himself. These symbols appear on reels 2 and 4 and substitute for any other symbol other than SCATTERS.
- SCATTERS – 3 or more SCATTERED Pawprint symbols activate 5, 10 or 15 Free Spins, with multipliers of 5x, 10x or 15x respectively. You can choose between these 3 options with the Select a Play function.
- Wildcat Repsin - during Free Spins, reels with WILD symbols are held, and the other reels are re-spun. If an additional Wildcat appears during the respin, then the respin is retriggered, which makes this a potentially lucrative feature.
- Gamble – gamble your wins by choosing a card colour or suit. You’ll double your win for a correct colour choice, and quadruple it for a correct suit.
This game has a Theoretical Return to Player of 95.461%, which should keep things rolling along nicely. You can also set the game to between 1 and 100 Autospins, if you’d like to put your feet up for a while and watch the wildlife interact themselves.
Wildcat Canyon is a clever and humorous title from NextGen that will have you purring with delight. It has all the bonus features we’ve come to expect from the best NextGen online slots, and a consistent and immersive theme that will have you chuckling as you chase those wins. A wild title indeed!
