Wildcat Canyon

Wildcat Canyon is a fun-packed online slot from NextGen Gaming that uses humorous cartoon graphics to help you have a blast in the heart of East Bay, California.


In real life, Wildcat Canyon is the name of a regional park which used to be inhabited by Native Americans until 1772, and in NextGen Gaming's slot game, you can hike along its hills and ridges while tracking down big wins. The game uses five reels and twenty-five paylines, and to make the gameplay even more exciting, there are wilds, a free spins bonus which comes with generous multipliers and lets you choose your own feature, plus a Wildcat Re-Spin Feature. You can start your outdoor adventure here at Samba Slots with bets of 25p to £250. However, as the paylines aren't fixed, you can take a spin for a mere penny if you prefer.

More about the Software Provider

NextGen Gaming has been a pioneer of online slots since it was founded in 1999. In recent years, the company was acquired by the NYX Gaming Group as an in-house software developer. NextGen Gaming also makes slots for land-based markets around the world, and its most recent mobile slot releases include Wild Play Super Bet, Lightning Gems, Golden Mane, Prosperity Twin, and Wild Run.

Appearance and Sound Effects

Under the blistering heat of the midday sun, Wildcat Canyon takes you on a memorable adventure through North America's rocky outcrops where you'll encounter some strangely lovable wild animals. There's the comically ferocious wildcat, a very surprised-looking rattlesnake, a goofy goat, an excited raven, a paw print, a cactus, and six playing card symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K, and A), two of which have been raked by a wild animal's claws.

Each time that you score a winning combination, fast-paced banjo music celebrates your success.

The game lets you choose how many of the twenty-five paylines you wish to play with, and you can adjust your bet size between £0.01 and £10.00. You can also configure the Autoplay feature to take between 1 and 100 spins on your behalf. The final option lets you mute the sound effects.

Bonuses and Special Features

The most feral of the animal symbols – the wildcat – acts as the wild symbol in Wildcat Canyon, and he can help you get your teeth into cash prizes by replacing all symbols except the scatter to make winning combinations. N.B., the wild only ever appears on the second and fourth reel.

Three Paw Print scatters trigger the Free Games Bonus where you can choose to accept fifteen free games with a 3x multiplier on all wild wins, ten free games with a 5x multiplier on all wild wins, or five free games with a 10x multiplier on all wild wins.

During the Free Games Bonus in Wildcat Canyon, any reel on which a wildcat appears gives you one re-spin with the wild symbol held in place.

Paylines/Reels

Wildcat Canyon uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty-five non-fixed paylines, and has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.461%.

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
