Online casino players in Michigan will soon have a spooky, scary option this October. Infective Wild, a top slot game from Pragmatic Play, will be available soon on the BetRivers Casino and BetMGM Casino apps in Michigan.

It was released in some markets last week. It will be coming to the BetMGM and BetRivers Michigan casinos in time for Halloween.

Infective Wild will feature a 5×5 reel slot and offers 40 paylines. Players can win as much as 5,000x their stake, making it an intriguing option among the libraries at Michigan online casinos.

It’s rated as a high volatility game, with 96.09% Return To Player (RTP).

“We set out to create a game that embodies the spooky spirit of Halloween while also offering an unexpected mechanic – Infective Wild with its infectious feature spreading wilds across the reels does just that and more,” said Pragmatic Play COO Irina Cornides in a press statement.

“Providing big win potential in the base game and a culmination of wild wins in the bonus, the slot provides thrills that can be enjoyed all year round as well as throughout the spooky season.”

How to play Infective Wild


  • The 10 through Ace in the spooky card deck = low value symbols, which can pay in the range of x0.2 and x6 the player’s bet.
  • Potions, gravestones, cauldrons, witch hats = medium value symbols, which can pay between x0.6 and x30 the player’s preferred stake.
  • Black cats and ravens = high value symbols, paying between x2 and x60 the player’s bet.
  • Scatter gold coins can pop up on reels 1, 3, or 5, and result in free spins.
  • Wild pumpkins serve as wild cards on the reels. If you get 3, 4, or 5 wild pumpkins you’ll receive x3, x15 or x60 your bet.

Game play

There are as many ways to win in Infective Wild as there are candy bars offered during Trick Or Treat season. But, the location and combinations are crucial. If you get certain symbols adjacent or in combos, you may earn more free spins or boost your payout.

And, get any high-value symbols next to transformed symbols like wild pumpkins, and all the symbols become wild.

Free spins are determined by a special 8-reel with numbers between 1-3 on each. After the reel spins, all the numbers are added together to determine how many free spins you receive.

Finally, you can also buy free spin mode at the cost of x100 your stake.
