Just looking at the name, we bet your head was filled with images of lollipops and candy (not unlike Candy Crush). However, this couldn’t be further away from the truth as Wild Pops takes players to an environment with an Asian twist.
It’s a beautiful game in terms of graphics and visuals with the elaborate symbols sitting on a sophisticated grid. With 5 reels and thanks to the expansions, you are eligible for 243 to 16,807 paylines! That’s by far the highest we have seen in many games.
The symbols aren’t confined to their individual cells and can disappear and be replaced with new ones with every tap of the spin button. Wild Pops is a feature-packed game with reasonable volatility.
The Asian touch is refreshing at a time when none of us are able to travel. You are met with symbols that are appropriate for the theme (mostly lucky characters) with exciting traditional music as well.
With the RTP sitting nicely at 96.2, it’s not extremely high, but it’s acceptable. However, if you factor in the enormous number of potential paylines and a max payout of about 17,707 times your initial bet, it all more than makes up for it.

The theme is where it really hits home for us with beautiful and carefully curated characters, symbols, and visuals. The bright colours and crisp graphics are really eye-catching and make the game more interesting. The betting range in Wild Pops isn’t extremely vast or high. Bets start from 0.2 to 50, which is pretty standard as well. When you consider all the winning possibilities, it’s a game that offers a fair amount of returns.
As we mentioned, Wild Pops is a feature-packed game that pays both ways (left to right and vice versa), which gives you even more chances of winning combos. The main feature in Wild Pops is the Pop Wins feature. This is what we touched upon before.
In any winning combo, the symbols have the potential to “pop” and be replaced by two more. This is also responsible for expanding the reel and, therefore, leads to the paylines and maximum wins.

Aside from that fancy feature, you also have the good old multiplier. Whenever you get a winning combo, it adds to the counter that leads to a multiplier. You need seven symbols to activate 1 multiplier.
Then there are the free spins in Wild Pops. They are a bit harder to trigger since you need to expand the reel to the max. You then get 3 free spins, and the multipliers during the free spins carry over from one to the next. The wilds are also rare since the only way to get them is to get three winning combos in a row and get two wilds anywhere on the reel.
All in all, Wild Pops is an amazing game with impressive visuals and audio. Not to mention the many ways to win and the large max jackpot. Even with the RTP at just 96.2%, you can expect great returns in this game.
The feature-packed Wild Pops will keep things interesting, and the large winnings will definitely keep you engaged for as long as the game is running.
