Online Slots With Stacked Wilds

Note: Check out some videos of online slots with stacked wilds at Slotjunkies.

Not sure about you, but when I look for entertaining online slots, free spins are the key, but this is closely backed up by the concept of the “Stacked Wild” symbol. Or, in fact, Expanding Wild symbols. Briefly for those who don’t know what this means, it is a Wild symbol that can potentially cover all the symbols on a reel. A Stacked Wild is a Wild symbol that comes in blocks – the number depending on the number of positions in view on a reel (3 or 4 is the norm) while an expanding wild is a single Wild that, when it lands, expands to cover the whole reel.

So which online slots have stacked wilds? I am going to concentrate on slot games for everyone outside of the USA here as the games covered are available in online casinos that do not take US players. If you are from the USA, I will simply drect you to iNetBet or Club USA Casino to play Aztec Treasure or Crystal Waters which have stacked wilds in normal game play, or Realm Of Riches which adds them in the free spins bonus. Oh and it’s probably worth mentioning the excellent Ronin slot which has a free spins feature that can make the wild symbol stacked on Reel 3.

For everyone outside the USA, in addition to the slots above, here are some of the best online slot machines with stacked wilds.

The first picks have to be the well known land-based slots, Wolf Run and Treasures Of Troy which are both made by IGT and can be played at Virgin Casino or Paddy Power. The stacked wilds are a feature of both normal gameplay and the free spins bonus rounds, although with Treasures Of Troy the gameplay is slightly unique in that every symbol is a reel, so the stacked principle applies to EVERY symbol, not just the wilds. Also at he same casinos you will find a couple of other lesser known slots withe stacked wild symbols: Battleship – which has two different bonus features including a free spins bonus – and the excellent Dungeons and Dragons (see video below), although the stacked wilds in the latter only appear in the free spins bonus.

My favourite stacked wilds game is on Playtech software and is called Great Blue. It’s available at Bet365, BetFred  or the fast paying Tote Casino. Be warned, this is a high variance slot game so don’t bet too big, but with the stacked wilds and high multipliers in the free spins bonus game you can will very, very big at times. Also at Bet365 you will find The Hulk slot which has an Expanding wild on the centre reel, while all three casinos also feature Sparta, another slot game with stacked wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4. Similar to Sparta is the Cherry Luck slot – well, identical in all but imagery and sounds in fact. 

Similar to Great Blue is a slot called Irish Luck, again available at the same casinos – Bet365, Betfred and Tote Casino. It’s almost identcal except that it has 30 paylines as opposed to Great Blue’s 25 but on both slots you can win up to 33 free spins with a 10x multiplier which, with stacked wilds available on every reel is pretty exciting at times.
