Understanding Wild Symbols in Slot Games



Wild symbols have been around in slot machines since the days of the one-armed bandit. Nevertheless, new players are often unsure of what, exactly, it is they do. Luckily for you, we’ve put together an infographic with the help of bgo.com. It covers everything you need to know about wilds before you start spinning slots. 

So, what are wilds? Essentially, they are symbols that can substitute for others on the reels of an online or land-based slot machine to help you find more winning combinations. Think of them as working like wild cards in poker. 

The appearance of wild symbols varies from slot to slot. What’s more, these days you can find different types of wilds. Modern video slots often feature Stacked Wilds, Expanding Wilds or Wild Multipliers. Make sure you check out our infographic to find out more about the different types of wilds out there.
