On a scale of starvation to unconditional love, it’s definitely at least golden retriever puppies. Seriously, the chance – and the happenstance – of multiple wilds lining up in a single reel and coming together to pay out five, 10, maybe dozens of ways at once?

And landing stacked wilds to fill reels 1 and 2 means an absolute minimum of nine paylines paying.
Unfortunately, yes. In fact, stacked wilds filling the entirety of reels 3, 4 and 5 *does not guarantee a win* is almost every 5-reel slots game with the feature. And we can tell you from experience, that almost no other outcome in standard slots play is quite as frustrating.
Yes. Slots with stacked wilds tend to produce some pretty nice-sized payouts – although be aware that landing stacked wilds is hardly commonplace in slots with the feature.
