Look and Feel
Fancy a trip to Alaska to see wild wolves hunting in the snow? Well, now’s your chance. You’ll see a snow filled forest in twilight in the background plus a flowing stream as your soundtrack that’s broken up from time to time by a howling wolf. He’s noisier than that bloke wearing the loin cloth in Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar, and that´s saying something!
The design is simple, but nice enough.
Wolf Howl slot comes with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 10 paylines (half the number of the Golden Genie slot which should give you an idea of how it plays), and you can spin from 0.10 to 100.00 per go. You can create wins from left-to-right with 3x or more matching symbols. Compared to games like Gold Volcano, it´s all pretty traditional, but it´s no worse for it. We like a classic slot.
Your savage reel icons include the hare, a moose, an eagle, a big brown bear (probably a grizzly), plus a couple of wolves. The moose is the highest value icon on the standard pay table and will scoop you 3x, 6 or 20 x your bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 of them. Just watch out for those antlers…
The wolf is your wild icon and he will replace all other symbols to give you extra winning combinations. But, there is another wild icon at play in this slot! It’s an extra Wolf Wild that comes with a 1x, 2x and 3x multiplier and will land on reels 2, 3 and 4…
Meanwhile, the scatter symbol is the bright full moon. Keep your beady eyes on it wombat fans!
Free Spins and Bonuses
It might look like a relaxing camping trip – but this slot comes with more thrills and spills than a rollercoaster thanks to multipliers, wild symbols, and free spins.
On any base game spin you could be treated to the Scatter Adder feature. This is triggered at random and will add from 2 and 4 extra scatters to the reels to increase your chances of setting off the Free Spins feature. Bonza.
Wild Call Free Spins
Hit 3x or more full moon scatters and it’s bonus time! Now you’ll get 8 free spins for 3 scatters, 15 free spins for 4 scatters, and 30 free spins for 5 scatters. Not bad at all.
Before each free spin, the scatters, plus all the icons next to them, will become 1x multiplier wilds. But, if a multiplier wild is already adjacent to a scatter, its value will increase by 1x.
If a wild is next to 2 scatters, the multiplier will increase twice – and the Multipliers in this awesome bonus feature can get up to 5x.
Truth be told; it’s not the best looking slot we’ve ever seen. But where this game does shine is with that high variance game-play. In fact, this wombat would give it a 9/ 10 on the volatility scale!
Waiting for the Free Spins could take a while, but when they do land you’ll be in Wolf Howl multiplier madness – which can lead to some very big wins indeed.
