NextGen slot features

NextGen have introduced several interesting slot features that make their slots stand out from the crowd. Here are a few examples:

Up Wild

This is a wild symbol that gradually makes its way up, leaving a trail of extra wilds below. If you like NetEnt’s Walking Wilds, you will most likely appriciate NextGen’s Up Wild as well, since the two are a bit similar in their mechanics.

Slide a Wild

With NextGens ground-breaking Slide a Wild feature, YOU get to manually impact the placement and behaviour of certain wild symbols. Much more fun than simply waiting patiently.


This patented NextGen feature activates the Reel Dividers, which in turn can lead to special prizes and bonuses for the player in unexpected ways.


If a slot machine from NextGen comes with the SuperBet feature, it means that you can make a side-bet in addition to the normal bet, and that this side bet will give you certain advantages, i.e. a higher chance of unlocking special features that can lead to more and/or higher wins.

One example of a well-known NextGen game where you can experience this feature is the Foxin’ Wilds, where players doing the SuperBet have a higher than normal chance of getting help from the cute little fox cubs that are hiding inside the reels, ready to jump out.
