Relax Gaming Launches Wild Hike Slot with Expanding Wilds

Relax Gaming, one of the top producers of online casino games, has announced the debut of yet another slot game inspired by nature’s wild side. The new nature-themed slot is aptly titled Wild Hike. The high volatility game comes with all the exciting bells and whistles including scatter symbols that generate free spins, as well as multipliers that increase one’s chances of winning.

The Wild Hike game also comes with a 96%Return to Player Rate. The Return to Player Rate is a term used to describe the percentage of all the gambled money a slot machine will pay back to customers or players over a specified period. 

As mentioned earlier, Wild Hike has been set in the heart of the forest. The captivating slot game invites participants to walk through the forest during nighttime. The game consists of several wild animals such as bears, wolves, owls, and deer who serve as animal symbols. When players hit 6 wild animal symbols, it generates a payout of up to 1.8-10x the initial wager.

The loud wolf symbols represent the wilds in Wild Hike. These loud symbols are situated on the 4-reels and replace the regular paying symbols represented by the various forest animals. When a player comes across the 3 scatter symbols, it triggers 7 free spins.

It is worth noting that Wild Hike has not been Relax Gaming’s newest release. As the biggest developer of casino games in the iGaming industry, Relax produces more than 4,000 casino game titles. Not too long ago on January 11th, Relax debuted yet another slot known as Grim the Splitter Dream Drop. 

The new game is spooky-themed and comes with plenty of innovative and rewarding features for Relax Gaming’s customers. Grim the Splitter’s most notable feature has been the ever-popular Dream Drop Bonus, which can be activated when players hit 5 Dream Drop symbols. Once the Dream Drop Bonus feature has been activated, it allows punters to win 1 out of 5 jackpots. 

A few weeks later on January 25th, Relax Gaming introduced yet another spooky addition to its portfolio titled Horror Hotel: A New Spooky Game. Horror Hotel has been designed to complement Relax Gaming’s already expansive slot game portfolio and will re-introduce Relax’s popular Mystery Symbol feature.

Horror Hotel will be a 6×6 high-volatility slot game that will boast a ghostly graveyard theme. The game also consists of an array of scary eery symbols such as vampires, mummies, and Frankenstein, as well as magical potions. Perhaps the biggest selling point of this game, however, is the Mystery Symbol feature.

The Mystery Symbol Feature was first introduced when Relax Gaming released its Santa Stack game. What’s so attractive about the feature is that it can be activated by players on any win. Once activated, the feature transforms the winning cluster into an even bigger win.

Most recently in February, Relax Gaming also released the Wild Chapo sequel, Wild Chapo 2 to follow up on Wild Chapo 1’s release in 2021. Wild Chapo 2 will be inspired by the Mexican outback and has been designed to engage players in exciting gameplay to help Wild Chapo escape from prison.

Some of the gaming elements that players will be exposed to include buckets hanging on ropes, hiding donkeys, massive colorful sombreros, as well as an array of other playful animations. Players must work hard to plot Chapo’s escape from prison as they watch the high-volatility game unfolding.

Relax Gaming continues to strike strategic partnerships

Relax Gaming has also started the year off strong with a range of strategic partnerships.

In January 2023, Relax Gaming became the 2nd supplier of online casino products in the Greek online casino gambling market. Relax Gaming obtained a license from the Hellenic Gaming Commission that allowed it to gain entry into the burgeoning gambling market. 

Indeed, entry into the Greek market has been a longstanding objective of Relax Gaming ever since Greece overhauled its betting laws in 2021. Since Greece’s gambling regulation overhaul, Relax has been keen on introducing its games in the market. Thanks to the Hellenic Gaming Commission’s approval, players in Greece enjoy Relax Gaming titles such as Money Train 3, Net Gains, and more.

Joining the Greek gambling market has served as a milestone for the brand as the iGaming market in the country has a massive potential that is only going to become amplified in the coming years. Now that Relax has its iGaming Supplier License from the Greek Gaming Commission, it will likely keep making more strategic partnerships in the region.

Relax also welcomed SmartSoft Gaming into its family of Relax Gaming partners, which has been growing steadily over the last year or so. Under the terms of the deal, Smartsoft will integrate its content within Relax’s popular aggregation platform, which will further differentiate Relax’s already spread-out collection.

As a result of this deal, SmartSoft will expand its presence quickly and expose its content to even more punters. SmartSoft has been generating high-end casino games since the brand was launched in 2018 and is one of the fastest-growing developers.

Relax also onboarded content from yet another studio this January known as Galaxsys. Galaxsys is a popular gaming studio based in Armenia that has managed to take the European iGaming market by storm. Galaxsys content, which is enjoyed by casino providers in LATAM, Europe, Africa, as well as Asia will help to further diversify Relax Gaming.

Finally, Relax also entered into a similar strategic content partnership with AboutSlots, the largest online resource for slot games. Thanks to this partnership, both Aboutslots and Relax Gaming will co-produce brand-new slots content. This new content is expected to go live on both platforms by July 2023. 

Final Thoughts

Relax Gaming has made a name for itself by supplying advanced high-performing slot titles and casino games that are created in its own studios and through third-party partnerships. Thanks to its innovative slot titles, Relax Gaming is a recipient of some of the industry’s biggest awards including being named the slot and casino developer of the year at the SBC awards.
