Wild Wolf shares a chromosome or two with the world-class IGT platform – Wolf Run. There is little to separate the two games and, basically, it's up to you to decide which one is best.
To give you a hand, we’ve got a review of Wild Wolf right here…
When we think of a wolf pack, it's easy to picture a menacing set of fluorescent eyes, reflecting under a full moon and staring at us, the prey between the treeline.
Wolves are baddies, for the most part, but…
In Wild Wolf, the moon is yet to rise and the entire interface is covered by a burning red sky – a signal to what we expect, is a nearing night sky illuminated by a giant full moon…much like the one we see displayed within the wild symbol.
The symbols are varied, simple and beautifully designed. The 'main' icon we're talking about here is the howling wolf, silhouetted against an enormous full moon and paying tribute to the game's popular cousin – Wolf Run (where the image is also used as a primary symbol).
More stunning wolf artwork is featured too – one symbol takes the image of a jet-black predator and another boasts a thick, brown coat. The incorporation of all three wolves really adds to that pack-like vibe in this game and – although IGT have passed no official word on this theory – we believe the designers intend for you to feel part of that pack (not their food), almost as if you're the fourth wolf.
Besides the animals themselves, the reels also feature two totem icons, a tribally-themed bonus icon and even the face card symbols are etched in a pastoral way – all adding to the raw atmosphere of Native America.
The theme may be one of the big draws for this IGT slot but its huge pack of features has a part to play too…
With half a hundred winning lines to play with every spin, you've got a great opportunity here. And you can tweak the line and bet count – custom slots gaming at its best.
The wolf that howls in front of the full moon is your wild symbol – hence the name, 'Wild Wolf'. This will act as a filler for you, meaning you can turn those close-calls into full on wins. And there's even more wild symbols in the bonus round!
Free Spins Bonus
With three bonus icons placed anywhere on the board, you will trigger and enter the Wild Wolf bonus round – where five free spins are awarded as standard.
The reels turn from white to black and begin to tumble frantically until your spins are over. It's at this time your total bonus pay is displayed and you can settle down.
During the bonus phase, the sky switches from a fiery red to a cool purple. The night is growing ever nearer and this is when the wolves are at their wildest – which is a nice way of representing the increased amount of stacked wild symbols throughout the bonus.
Obviously, fans of the other Wolf slots are going to love this somewhat wilder creation from IGT.
Beginners will appreciate the minimalistic five-reel format and the theme does a great job of keeping things easy to understand. Your focus is fixed on the columns at all times.
Plus, the surrounding interface does offer some tinkering options for the more active gamers. Adjusting the line and bet amounts gives you a degree of control. When fine-tuning the lines, you can also take advantage of the colour-coded display we see in many IGT titles today.
In conclusion, Wild Wolf is an all-rounder, with something for everybody.
At Kerching, we particularly enjoy the blend of gameplay and imagery – the designers have done a great job of placing you in a wild scenario, while keeping the primary focus on the actual slots.
