Gerard’s Gambit

Apr 27, 2023







Join Gerard Wilde, the black sheep of the renowned Wilde Family, as he sets off on a journey of discovery and redemption to reclaim the honour of his family name.

Venture across the world with Gerard in search of riches and mysteries from the dunes of Egypt to the lost temples of the Mexican rainforests. But be prepared for a bumpy ride – Gerard will risk everything to restore his reputation and be recognised as more than just the family’s wild card…

This exciting new chapter for the Wilde family brings with it an innovative new way to play video slot games. With an expanding reel that increases in size, and with new features as you advance through ten levels, this provides a much more obvious sense of progression through the game.

As a veteran player this represents story advancement and gives you a different way to play than you’ll be used to. If you’re a beginner to video slots, however, this will also provide you with the means to learn how these types of games work, adding features and more paylines to help you get used to the overall mechanics of traditional video slot games.

Gerard’s Gambit Slot Review

The Wilde series started in 2016 and have expanded drastically since then. With several sequels in the Rich Wilde series and later with his sister Cat who got her own series. Now releasing a new game within the Wilde family, the explorer and black sheep Gerard Wilde sets out on an exhilarating journey spanning the distant landscapes of Central America to the perilous tombs of Egypt.

Prepare yourself for a global expedition alongside Gerard as he seeks wealth and unravel mysteries, venturing from the Egyptian dunes to the hidden temples of the Mexican rainforests. You will discover sticky wilds, bonus chests, expanding wilds, different reel sets, expanding wilds and free spins as you unlock the different locations across Central America. We here at IVSDb have had so much fun with this game and we are sure you will too.

Gerard’s Gambit base gameplay

You start the game in Gerards Mansion with 3 reels and only 1 row. Your mission here is to get 3 wins with any symbols and once you have completed your mission, you will travel to Egypt where you get a new mission. This time they have added a wild amongst the symbols and your mission is to get 3 wins with a wild symbol. 

In the next location the reel set will expand to 3 reels and 2 rows. This time you need two wilds to trigger the respins feature, and you’ll need to get it twice to complete your mission and unlock the next location. 

There are in total 10 different locations, all with different missions, symbols, features, music, volatility and reel sets. It feels like playing 10 different games in 1, and we’ll promise you that you’ll have a fun experience in all of them. 

One thing to note is that you need to unlock each new location before you can play it. So the first time you play the game, you need to start with the first location, and unlock each location. Once you have unlocked all locations, you can choose which one to play from a map within the game, and your progress is of course saved, as long as you continue your gameplay from the same casino. 

Gerard’s Gambit video slot RTP and volatility

The volatility of the game will increase as you unlock the new countries, so not only will the payout be less frequent but bigger, it will also be more difficult to unlock the new countries. However from my own experience, even in the first countries there are huge potential for big wins, but the gameplay is not as entertaining. 

Bonus feature in Gerard’s gambit

As you progress in the game you will unlock bonus features. The features you can expect in this game are sticky wilds with respins, the bonus chest which contains a cash prize and a free spin feature. How these features are activated can differ between the countries. For example in one country you may activate the free spins by getting one scatter, while in another country you need two scatters. 

Our conclusion about Gerard’s Gambit

Gerard’s Gambit from Play’n GO is truly a masterpiece. The games’ unique gameplay and mechanics will entertain for several hours. The captivating music and sound only enhance the experience. And as always, Play’n GO have the symbol animations on point. We also appreciate the lightning strike after a winning spin, that will make the glyphs in the background to start glowing. This is Play’n GO as its best.

    It’s like playing several different slots in the same game. Once you completed a mission, you travel to a new area with new missions and different symbols and reel sets (the reels expand as you move to the new area). Very unique game!
