Wild Melon is an online slot game developed by Play ‘N Go casino software providers. This game is fairly unique in the world of online slots, as it has been kept simple, resembling the classic fruit slot machines that graced the floors of Las Vegas casinos during the 1980’s. Wild Melon offers 3 reels and only a single payline, as well as a watermelon symbol that acts as a wild symbol to form extra winning combinations.
Graphics and Themes
Looking at the interface of Wild Melon will immediately inform players of its theme, which alludes to the nostalgia of the early retro fruit video slot machines that took casino floors by storm with their emergence. The game is set against a bright green backdrop dotted with glowing stars, and the large watermelon graphic dominating the screen ties in with the classic fruit slot theme of this game. The graphics and design of this game are deliberately simple in order to closely resemble the screens of the traditional fruit video slot machines that are a staple addition to many land-based casinos. Even the coin and win amount indicators seem to be taken straight from the design of a slot machine.
The reels of the game are positioned to the left of the screen, and take up only a small proportion as it, as to the right there is a payout table featured that describes winning symbol combinations and their respective payouts. The game’s logo is also featured in a prominent position above the reels in the typical style of a land-based fruit slot, adding a touch of authenticity to the theme.
On the reels of Wild Melon are colourful fruit symbols, including watermelons, oranges and cherries. There are 3 different variations of the cherry symbol, and symbols featuring 1, 2 and 3 cherries will appear on the reels during the game.
The cherry symbols featuring 1, 2 and 3 cherries will pay out when 3 or more matching cherry symbols land on the reels, but also when the cherry symbol combination is mixed. If a combination of symbols includes a 1-cherry symbol, a 2-cherry symbol and a 3-cherry symbol, for example, players can still expect to be paid out for that combination.
Wild Symbol and Jackpot Payout
The watermelon symbol is the highest paying symbol in the game, and will award players a jackpot payout of 10,000x their stake when playing at the maximum bet level of 3 coins the same payout apply on horse betting. If players are playing a 2 coin bet, the watermelon wild will award a jackpot of 2,500 coins and when playing a 1 coin bet, players can land a jackpot of 1,000 coins.
The watermelon symbol also serves as Wild Melon’s wild symbol. This symbol will substitute all other game symbols when appearing on the reels, helping to create more winning combinations. Additionally, any wins resulting from a symbol combination in which a watermelon wild substituted another symbol will automatically be doubled thanks to a 2x wild multiplier.
