How To Play It
There isn’t much to discuss when it comes to wagers. The options are standard, between $0.10 and $100 per round.
What the game offers in exchange, is a limited game area, with only 10 active lines present on 5 reels. 3, 4, or 5 matching symbols, when arranged left to right on an active line, will form a combination and get you a prize.
The entire game revolves around the Harlequin symbol. This is a stacked wild, which you can use both to form winning combinations of its own, and to substitute it for other symbols that you’re missing. Even though it lands stacked, it will be nudged to take over the entire reel, so in the end it’s more like an expanding wild.
If you can get the Wild Harlequin to appear on 3+ reels, you’re going to use it to trigger the free spins. For this mode, you will be playing with Magic Reels in the columns where you had the triggering wilds. If additional Harlequin Wilds appear on the Magic Reels, the multiplier for it gets a boost by 1x. The only way to claim more free spins, and just 2 extra rounds, is by reaching a multiple of 5x for the multiplier (5x, 10x, etc).
There is the button to buy access into the free spins, but this is not an option that all jurisdictions will have. You can pay 80x the stake, and you get the feature triggered with 3+ Harlequins and Magic Reels. There is also the option to pay 200x the stake, in which case you get the free spins with 4+ Harlequins as triggers.
Overall, the list of features is not very long, but it’s interesting. It’s a modern feature, which manages to keep the game simple overall, without too much fluff.
Wild Harlequin has awesome rewards to give away, but it will not part with them easily. Even though it’s got a top jackpot of 30,000x the stake that it can pay, it also has high volatility, and a lot of players will not enjoy this punishing side of it.
The operator can choose one of the three RTP values available. You need to check the help files, and find a casino that uses the 96.27% RTP. The other two options, of 94.19% and 90.12%, are too low to be worth it.
Wild Harlequin is not the most modern slot machine you’re going to get, and the list of features revolves entirely around the Wild Harlequin and its free spins. Still, it will pay as much as games with more complex mechanics, if not better.
