About the Company
Wild Streak Gaming (WSG) is a Las Vegas, Nevada-based game and content developer for online portals and land-based casinos and social gaming. The company was founded in 2016 and is headed up by a team with deep experience in game design and maths as well as an impressive number of contributions to games released by Konami, Aristocrat, Bally, and WMS, to name a few.
Managing Director, Doug Fallon has never worked outside the industry in his more than 16-year career so far. More than a decade of that time was spent at Aristocrat Technologies, completing his tenure there as VP Global Products – Core Games before moving on the WGS.
VP of Game Development, Keith Rucker has several game patents to his name including those related to interactive user interface, secondary gameplay (bonus features) and game features. Most of his individual contributions seem to have come from his time at Konami.
As a contractor at an independent lab, he also worked on maths and design at MX and Rocket Gaming. Perhaps most familiar to online players would be his work on the creation of design and maths for Mr. Vegas and Slot Father for BetSoft.
While the company is based in the United States, their network of resources is virtually unlimited globally.
Software and Games
Games for online play are all developed in HTML5 for omnichannel deployment. Games load quickly and display with the same clarity and features on a mobile device or when accessed with a tablet or desktop browser.
Look for titles such as Wild Catcher at Hero Gaming operations like Speedy Casino.
The games are often released in a series such as Gold Spins®, Replicating Reels®, and 576 Ways. They also feature a 40-payline game with high volatility under the title, Opal Mountain. The game has wild nudging multipliers and up to 300 free spins per bonus trigger.
In the Gold Spins series - which features titles such as Nordic Gold, Precious Pearl, and Golden Wild - the games offer an innovative double-feature. In one version, the 8 free games with 3 Gold Spins are triggered by acquiring gold symbols which will become wild during feature play. In another version, a Golden Meter builds up winning potential during regular free games. These games can be won more than once during Gold Spins.
The Replicating Reels titles - including Mystical Sun and Enchanted Manor, offer a feature that triggers expanding symbols on 2, 3, or 4 reels. Full reels can be filled with Wild symbols. Enchanted Manny features 3 progressive jackpots, random replicating reel triggers and stacked free game symbols. Mystical Sun is similar and includes a chance to win the jackpot during free games.
576 Ways Feature
Most WGS games to date are in the 576 Ways to Win category and include Amazon Jewels; Candy, Cats, and Cash; Shields of Fortune, and the Native American themed, Wild Catcher. Each game has its own unique features from free games and spinning symbols to win jackpots to bonus wilds and avalanching wilds.
576 Ways to Win are achieved through a 5-reel set consisting of three positions on the leftmost reel, the central reels have four positions, and the rightmost reel has three. Symbols pay in any position from left to right and most games have additional wild symbols on the three central reels.
The Final Analysis
Wild Streak Gaming offers a growing portfolio of games for online, land, and social casinos. The development team seems to be focused and productive, which is great for players who find a favorite among their games. While the features vary from game to game within a series, they hold enough commonalities to make a nice variation on a theme.
