NextGen Gaming released Wildcat Canyon back in 2014 which comes with a play board of 5 reels and 3 rows. This cartoon wildcat themed slot game comes with 25 paylines to hunt down our wins when you play today.
These 25 paylines play at a medium volatility and at an RTP of 95.5%. All of this we get to get involved with, with a betting range that would impress most online slot palyers.
This slot game comes with a min bets of £0.01 per payline, which means to play across all pay lines means a 25p minimum bet. This ranges up to a max bet of £625. All of this means we have a chance to get a max payout of 10,000 coins.
Wildcat Canyon Theme and Graphics
We open up Wildcat Canyon to an arid desert, with only a few cacti scattered across this cartoon sketched world with a smattering of clouds and in the distance birds flying, truly setting the scene of natural law and the wilderness.
For a slot built in 2014, Wildcat Canyon is a lively and visually exciting slot. Particularly when we take into consideration that this was designed for players to enjoy on mobile devices when the mobile casino industry was still young, so companies opted to keep graphics simple to avoid slowing down the games when being played over mobile internet.
Aside from the standard card deck values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
We also have an additional 4 character symbols to hunt down, the first two are a red and black snake, and a cactus. Moving up to the next payout boundary, we have a goat standing on his hind legs. Finally a vulture.

Wildcat Canyon Free Spins & Bonus Features
This simplistic looking slot, has a few great bonuses to potentially give us the edge we are looking for.
To get our hands on the free spins that this slot has to offer we have to land 3 or more bonus symbols.
The bonus symbol in Wildcat Canyon is the footprint of the wildcat in the dirt.
This will unlock the “Select A Play” feature, which lets us choose between
- 15 free games with wild wins x3

Reel Locking Wilds
Another great bonus that is on offer with this slot, happens when a wild land on the reels during the free spin bonus round.
The wild is the vicious wildcat itself!
This feature locks in any reel that has a wild symbols on it and a re-spin will be triggered, allowing for new wins.
Once we have made those wins, we are able to gamble those winning to see if we can increase our prize amount. This is done through betting on a card drawn from a deck. We are able to bed on either the colour or the suit to boost our winnings.
Verdict on this Slot
Wildcat Canyon is a surprisingly engaging game for something that has been around for so long. There is a nostalgia that reminds me of old road runner cartoons, that being said, so much time has passed that there are bound to be slot games out there that leave this wildcat in the dust, both with regards to graphical quality and to the bonus mechanics
We rate Wildcat Canyon a 4/10 slot! For more wild fun, check out the Wild Wizards slot.
