Solar Wilds - We’re a little biased towards the outer space theme since Star Wars and Star Trek have had an impact on our lives. Even without the cute and funky spherical planets, the game brings out the best in a simplistic theme with nothing more than multi-coloured balls floating in space.
The theme only changes during wild respins, but even then, the geometric star designs seem cool at a second glance. The grid design isn’t square, but instead, each cell takes on a hexagon shape that is transparent against the dark backdrop. The symbols seem to be floating in Solar Wilds, and rightly so since that’s what planets do in space.
We’ve found that bright and vivid colours are what attracts a player’s attention the most, rather than very intricate designs, so on this front, Solar Wilds aces it.
If you look closely at the hexagonal cells, you can count a 3×5 playing grid. The game offers a very standard amount of paylines, although we will admit it’s a bit on the low side at only 10. However, the 10 paylines can end up giving you a max payout of 1,000x your initial bet. If you are strictly looking at the math model in Solar Wilds, a 1,000x return isn’t that bad at all.

Because the payout isn’t the highest around, the game is only a medium on the volatility scale. The RTP or return to player is a nice 96.27%, and the betting range is a very healthy 0.10 to 100.
Let’s see if the features offered in Solar Wilds increase the game’s position on our rating scale or earn strikes against it.
From what we saw, the features in Solar Wilds are as simple as the theme design. It has a wild symbol, which is the solar sign that only shows itself on the middle reels. Like other games, the solar wild can take the place of all other symbols but isn’t worth anything on its own.
If you are lucky enough to get a wild on the grid, it will multiply to cover the entire reel and award you with a respin. You only get one, but that’s okay because during this bonus feature, the wild symbol will become sticky, which means it stays in place.
To keep this mechanic going, all you need to do is hope for more wilds. And no, we know what you’re thinking, but you only get one extra respin no matter how many wilds you land during the same spin.
Is that all the game has to offer? Yes, it is. The features are as simple and straightforward as the theme itself. While some players are used to more advanced and fancy bonuses, others may appreciate the easy interface and clear mechanics that don’t require much thought.
Solar Wilds doesn’t offer too much in terms of the design and features, but can it hook players in with the symbols? We like it but judge for yourselves. What you can see on the screen are:Purple planets, Green planets, Blue planets, Turquoise planets, Pink planets, Sun symbol, Wild.

It’s easy to keep track of these symbols, and the design is cute. The planets function as the lower-paying symbols, while the premium symbols can give you 12x your stake. However, the wild isn’t worth anything on its own.
Are the simple design and one bonus feature a yay or a nay? That depends. We’ve seen our fair share of complicated themes and advanced mechanics, and sometimes it takes something minimalistic to breathe a breath of fresh air into the slot world. The statistics aren’t bad, and the music is fitting. So if you are looking for something to run in the background, Solar Wilds is a good choice.
