- A new slot from Yggdrasil that focuses on the Wild symbol
- Use respins and nudges to try and help you get more wins
- The Free Spins Bonus is a bit lacking and not very fun
Yggdrasil have produced a new slot by the name of Wild Mantra slot which is now available to play. I’ve said many times in the past how I think Yggdrasil are one of the most exciting and innovative software developers in the business and I can’t help but get excited when a new slot is released. In this instance, however, I’m not sure they’ve really tried to push the boat out as they normally do, so let’s take a further look at what’s going on here.
In terms of the design, it’s pretty basic with not much of a theme. It looks OK and the graphics are decent, but it certainly doesn’t stand out. There are 5 reels with 4 rows, offering 25 paylines and an RTP of 96.3%. You, as the player, need to spin the reels to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols of the game. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Spades, Diamonds, Clubs or Hearts (lowest value)
- Blue, Purple, Green or Red symbol (highest value)
Of course, there’s a Wild symbol in Wild Mantra slot that substitutes for all of the aforementioned symbols in a winning combination to help you get some wins.

Wild Mantra Slot Bonuses and Features
Mantra Respin. Every Wild symbol that lands during the base game will offer you a respin. If, during the respin, you land another Wild symbol, all of the previous Wild symbols will nudge by 1 position to add more Wild symbols.
Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered by 3 or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels at the same time. No matter how many you land you will always receive 10 free spins, but the cash reward for landing them goes up significantly the more you land. Any Wild symbols that are already on the reels when you trigger the Bonus will be carried over into the Bonus. Not only that, but at least 1 reel is guaranteed to have a Wild symbol at the top. If you manage to fill an entire reel with Wild symbols, you’ll be given another free spin.
Wild Mantra slot from Yggdrasil isn’t one of their most ambitious. But it is a shame because this is a company who have built a reputation of creating some of the most outrageous and original, fun games on the market. Wild Mantra slot is much more simple although still different in its own way. It’s heavily focused on the Wild symbol which offers respins and is used in the Free Spins Bonus to award extra free spins making it a valuable asset, but there’s not much else to the slot really. I’m not a huge fan of the concept, and the design is pretty basic too. This certainly isn’t one of my favourite slots and I’m not sure I can recommend it to too many players, but by all means give it a go and see what you think.
