Online casino game developer Spearhead Studios has released its latest video slot, Wilds of Wall Street II, the sequel to the highly successful original which was showcased during ICE London 2020 in early February.
Like the first iteration, the (up to) 5×5 slot is optimized for mobile gameplay and transports players to 1980s New York where they are beginning traders on the stock market looking to make a fortune.
Heavily influenced by movies such as the 2013 Martin Scorsese-directed Wolf of Wall Street where Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort who lands a job as a Wall Street stockbroker in 1987 and quickly gets caught up in the sexy stockbroker culture of the era.
A unique, high-intensity soundtrack helps heighten anticipation of big wins in this new online slot and takes the player to the crowded streets of the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City.
Game Development Director for Spearhead Studios, Kevin Corti, commented on the new release in an official company press release, saying…
“Wilds of Wall Street was one of our top performers when it was released back in January 2020. Players loved the core expanding reel mechanics and the overall theme, and we felt that a sequel would be a great addition to our growing gaming portfolio.
“In Wilds of Wall Street II, we switched to a ‘ways pays’, rather than pay lines, mechanics as it was a better fit with the core expanding reels gameplay feature. In addition, we wanted to make the free spins features much more accessible, exciting, and volatile, hence we came with the idea of adding more and more wilds to the reels as the free spins progress, leading to an ever-higher potential for big wins.”
Perfectly complementing the theme of the game, the features are such that any paid win during the base game triggers extra re-spins and expanding reels. Meanwhile, landing a six-win sequence takes you into the “endless” extra spins, which only end after three “closing bells” have rung, similar to the actual New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
