Wild Heist at Peacock Manor from Thunderkick is a five-reel, 17-Payline slot that takes a good old-fashioned crime yarn as its theme. Expect the visual excellence and cartoonish graphics for which this developer’s imaginative offerings are known. What’s more, this one’s a burglar’s sack positively bursting at the seams with swag in the form of intriguing features.
It’s your task to assist a gang of burglars in snatching the loot – in this case, a gold statue of a peacock. To do this, you’ll need to collect all the keys to the manor door. Wild Heist also does a great job of building suspense with Victorian-style characters, plus a soundtrack that calls the Pink Panther to mind.
How to play
Set your bets as usual, choosing a stake that’s as small or big as you like between10p and £100.
Symbols 10 through A are your standard lower-paying values. Nothing too exciting there, but among the more lucrative icons are the peacock and diamond (which pays the same as the Wild), followed by four criminal masterminds: three men and a redhead woman.
Wild Heist at Peacock Manor special features
The key symbol, set against a blue mirror-like background, is the Scatter. The Wild has the letter W in an ornate geometric design. Land five to win 20x stake – it’s the game’s top-paying icon. As ever, it replaces all icons bar the Scatter.
There are three random mystery features which can also crop up in the bonus round, bearing in mind only one will activate at a time:
When this happens, up to seven Wilds appear on the reels at random.
This cracking little perk means that each walking Wild involved shifts one step to the left. You get respins as long as at least a single Wild of this type remains active.
During a spin where this applies, as many as three full reel reels can convert to Wild. The Wild reel goes on top, replacing the symbols below it.
Trigger this by landing three Scatters in the usual fashion. Choose three cards (and you’re allowed one extra choice for each additional Scatter won, up to a maximum of five). This decides the kind of free spins won. The picked card stays active for as long as the round lasts.
- Number of extra free goes
- Extra multiplier on every win
- Mystery feature (as described above)
- A mid-win symbol converting into a Wild
- Bag a couple of Scatters or more and you get to choose again with extra cards.
- Each extra Scatter grants an extra pick, for up four maximum.
Return to Player (RTP)
The RTP or Return to Player here is a bang-on Thunderkick average of a theoretical 96.1%, and it’s also worth remembering that Wild Heist at Peacock Manor is a highly volatile offering. So you could go hundreds of spins without a bonus, although, equally, on each free spin you could potentially win almost 8,500x stake.
Wild Heist at Peacock Manor has plenty to offer in the way of fun and creative charm, even if not all the features are exactly ground-breaking, so there is lots to enjoy here. In particular, it’s a good one if you like your slots to have a bit of a story behind them or enjoy games with a slightly dark edge.
However, with a lot going on, it may just feel a touch overwhelming if you’re not an experienced player, unless, of course, you just fancy diving in at the deep end. Take your chances, and remember the first rule of crime – don’t get caught!
