The Wombat says: the Cool Wolf slot from Microgaming – those designers behind the Leagues of Fortune slot, Jurassic World and Terminator 2- takes us back to the glory days of high school, but this time there’s an extra fun twist – you’re a teenage werewolf with a full moon problem and you live in Tinseltown.
This Hollywood-styled slot is a game for the fun-lovin’ wolf about town rather than the blood-thirsty animal of horror movies like and American Werewolf in London – think cool teenager in 1950’s America but a bit more hairy. This is more Ted slot machine than Call of Duty- just with less profanities.
In fact it reminds us quite a lot of Teen Wolf. Remember that series? Anyway, let’s take a look at the game…
Look and Feel
The reels are set against the backdrop of a Hollywood sunset street, with the famous sign rewritten “Howlingwood” and there’s plenty of neon and the bright lights to boot. It reminds us of the Reel Thunder slot– with more bells and whistles.
The upbeat guitar soundtrack takes you back to those rock n’ roll heydays, too. Sounds a bit like The Shadows, no?
Cool Wolf has 5 reels, 3 rows and is a ‘243 ways to win slot’. Your reels are positively loaded with all the things you’d expect to find in a 1950’s Hollywood high school, and they include; a souped-up Chevy under a full moon, a wad of cash and a cool pair of shades, two hot cheerleaders, a glasses-wearing nerdy dude (who is our Cool Wolf, pre-Full Moon transformation) and a cinema billboard that’s lit up with the game’s title Cool Wolf.
These icons are mixed in with the standard playing cards J, Q, K, & A that make up the lower value symbols.
The Wild in the slot is the Cool Wolf logo symbol, and these helpful icons will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels to help you make winning combos.
Keep your eyes peeled for these beauties on reels 4, 5, and 6, as they will also land stacked. Awesome!
Scatter and Free Spins
The Scatter in Cool Wolf slot is the movie ticket stub (naturally), and if you manage to land 3x or more of these hot icons anywhere on the reels and you’ll set off the Free Spins bonus!
Now that’s enough to get this Wombat’s blood rushin’!
But that’s not all Wombat Fans; each time you match the symbols across the reels these then change into new symbols, making for more potential combinations from each win!
Rolling reels they are called, the likes of which you might have seen before in Gonzo’s Quest and other slot faves.
Cool Wolf Bonus Features
This Wombat got in touch with our inner werewolf when we discovered the Howling Wild feature – and let out an enormous howl! This nice little extra is randomly triggered meaning that reels 2,3 or 4 can suddenly turn Wild – quite literally – with a claw appearing to tear down the reel, unleashing your chance of more wins. Growl!
This Wombat had a bloody great time (tee-hee) spinning the reels of Cool Wolf slot, and we while didn’t catch fleas, we certainly caught the bug for its game play. The fun bonuses, stacked Wilds and cool graphics make this slot worth a go- and even if the theme doesn’t grab you, the chunky pay outs will.
Wombat Score: 4/5
