We Check Out Pragmatic Play’s Latest Enchanted Garden Themed Slot Release Wild Pixies!
Pragmatic Play will be releasing their latest online slot, Wild Pixies, on the 11th of April 2019. With Videoslots Casino already having a vast selection of their slots, we think this will be the best casino to check out this new title.
As the name suggests, Wild Pixies has an enchanted forest theme with wild pixies and magic butterflies adorning the reels. At the heart of this game is a regular 5×3 reel 20 payline slot with a couple of added features that include roaming wilds, scatter nudges and, of course, free spins.
Looking through the paytable is a little disappointing as the 5 of a kind wilds look to be the only real decent wins on offer. Pragmatic Play has marked this as a 3.5/5 volatility release. Still, compared to all other developers, we would suggest this is more geared towards the lower variance style of slots.
The main bonus round is triggered by the regular three scatters, with the addition of a Bonus Nudge feature that can nudge a scatter on the 5th reel into view if it’s close, and this then awards a starting eight free spins.
The bonus round is where the Roaming Wilds come into play, but first, you will need to collect at least 2 of the wild butterflies for this to happen, with the amount of captured wilds easily tracked in the collection meter above the slot.
The Roaming wilds are released onto the reels when 2, 4 and 6 of them have been collected, and these then stay active on the reels for the remainder of the bonus round.
A couple of extra free spins are granted each time you have collected two wilds, which helps extend the bonus round. Still, there is no full re-trigger on offer in this slot, so the ideal situation is to capture six wilds as early as possible, giving you several free spins still left over with six roaming wilds on the reels.

Wild Pixies Slot Review
Wild Pixies Slot Overall Opinions
We have mixed thoughts on Wild Pixies from Pragmatic, the graphics, animations and theme are top quality, but the overall enjoyment we had from playtesting this slot was disappointing.
The base game is relatively mundane, with no actual extra features to look out for. The good news is that the bonus rounds were quite frequently triggered, with the scatter nudge feature helping out a couple of times, but these ranged from extremely disappointing bonuses to decent results (over 100x stake).
To get any decent-sized wins, you are dependant on the Roaming Wilds feature, not just this but landing lots of wilds early into the bonus round for a chance of some bigger wins with six roaming wilds on the reels and several free spins left.
Overall it’s a graphically superb slot that is somewhat let down by the paytable and a lack of random extra base game features that would have helped maintain our interest whilst waiting for bonus triggers.
