Expanding Wild SymbolsIf you play slots regularly, then you are probably more than aware of just what Expanding Wild symbols are, but if you are new to playing slot machines you may never have come across them before.

If the latter is the case then please do read on, for I am going to be taking a much closer look at those types of reel symbols today, and letting you know how they work and what they can do, and also letting you know which slots have them attached to their reels.

Plus, for those of you that may fancy playing such slots, be aware that you will find plenty of our free play slot games have them attached to their reels, and should you wish it play them for real money, there are plenty of casino sites at which you can play slots for real money too, many of which do have Expanding Wild symbols.

One other thing you really do need to be aware of, and that is there are a huge number of different wild symbols to be found on many different slot machines these days.

With that in mind please do take a good look through my many additional slot playing guides, as they are going to enlighten you on all manner of facts and figures relating to playing slot machines and how to play them optimally too.

Wild Symbols That Grow in Size

One first appearance when you some across Expanding Wild symbol it will look no different than more other wild symbols, however it is the way that symbol will suddenly spring to mind whenever it has been spun in that makes it a very unusual reel symbol.

Also be aware that some slot machines only have Expanding Wild symbols on selected reels, which some other slots could have them attached to all reels.

Whenever one of those symbols has been spun in, they will expand either upwards and/or downwards in size do that they become expanded in such a way that they cover every single in view reel position on any reel.

By doing so they can and often will help you form any number of winning combinations, based on where they have spun in and which reels are now covered in wild symbols

The best aspect of playing slot games with  both Expanding Wild symbols attached dot them and slots that offer players lots of pay-lines and loads of ways to win, is that you could spin in a screenful of them by getting one on each reel and then watching as they expand.

By doing so when playing slots with lots of ways to win and/or pay-lines you will then have formed a large number of winning combinations and many wild symbols act as jackpot symbols too, so those winning combinations could result in a mega sized jackpot pay-out.

Slot Games with Expanding Wild Symbols

Let me know give you a few examples of slot games that have Expanding Wild symbols on offer, and be aware that by following any of the links before you are going to be able to test those slot machines directly on our website completely free of charge too.

One slot that does offer a fun and exciting slot playing experience is the Rival Gaming software powered slot that goes by the name of the Watch the Birdie slot, that slot is also one that does boast some huge pay-out potential thanks to its set of Expanding Wild symbols too.

The Starburst slot game is a popular slot that has been designed, developed and la8ucnehd by NetEnt an instant play slot game designer and one whose slot machines can also be fully accessed and played on a mobile device too.

That slot comes with a set of Expanding Wild symbols, however whenever one or more than one of them has been spun in those symbols expanding in size and stay locked in positions as a re-spin is then awarded and played off.

Both of those two slots have been known to pay-out some rather large jackpots to players over the years so I can highly recommend both of them to any player that is looking to get stuck into playing slot games on which there are Ex0andign Wild symbols, and plenty of them waiting to be spun in too.
