Wild Symbol

In the context of slot machine gambling, a wild is a symbol that can take the place of most other symbols for the purposes of creating winning combinations on the paylines. Wilds typically cannot take the place of scatters and other special symbols.

Some slot machines include additional advanced wild symbols, such as expanding wilds, sticky wilds, and stacked wilds.
