Forest Mania

Wander into the depths of a magical woodland with quirky wild critters in this Forest Mania online bingo casino slot game by iSoftBet. The clue to the rest of the game is not only in the ‘forest’ title, but also in the ‘mania’ due to the way the game is set up, which is completely different to any other slot game on the market.

About the Developer

iSoftBet have been making a name for themselves in online gaming for a while now, and are continuously adding to their impressive portfolio, with unique and innovative games like Forest Mania, and other film/TV-inspired slot games like Basic Instinct, Hansel and Gretel and Paranormal Activity and many others to play and see more.

About the Game

First, you’ll notice exactly how different this game is to other bingo games, as there are two separate grids of reels, one on the left and one on the right, with the cute little critters watching you from the bottom. When you spin, they’ll spin together, and although it looks complex and confusing, it is just as simple as a one grid set. The symbols across the reels vary from weird and wonderful looking green and red critters, to quirky and mystical looking symbols like crowns, berries and gems.

Wild symbol – the wild is chosen at random from the first reel at any time, then once this has been decided and turns wild, any other matching symbol across both sets of reels will also turn wild, increasing wins dramatically. You’ve just got to sit back, relax and hope the wilds appear.

Wild reels – this is another randomly triggered feature which can happen at any time. Once it happens, up to three of the reels on the first grid will turn wild, not only this but the reels will also match on the second grid. Another bonus that will have you raking in the bigger wins!

Free spins – due to there not being a wild or a scatter symbol, the free spins round is also triggered randomly throughout the game. When you do happen to get awarded with a free spin round, you’ll get 10 of them. The wild symbol and wild reel features will become more frequent and likely during the free spins round, making bigger wins more possible.

The Verdict

A great looking game that has all the twists and turns of a magical forestland – beautiful high-quality graphics, pretty colours, cute little critters and an upbeat soundtrack to go with it. The randomly triggered features are fun and interesting, although it’s a bit disappointing that there are no features that are set in stone – you’ve just got to hope that Lady Luck is on your side, and that these features all trigger in your game. So, on the one hand, this game is quirky and interesting, but on the other, it’s lacking a bit of stability.
