Wolf Howl: Demo

The Wolf Howl slot is a super volatile game that takes players to the wild North American wilderness. Created by Just for the Win and Microgaming, it’s a 5 reel, 10 payline title that comes with multiplier wilds that can combine to really get things moving. That’s certainly the case in the Free Spins feature where you can win up to 60 free spins complete with scatters that transform adjacent symbols into multiplier wilds. Did this leave us howling with delight? Find out in our in-depth Wolf Howl review.

Wolf Howl Theme – head into the wilderness

Wolf Howl slot base game

Not to be confused with the best-selling book, play and TV drama Wolf Hall, The Wolf Howl slot has the look of a brick and mortar casino slot. Set against a woodland backdrop, the design here isn’t the most stunning you’ll see but it’s pretty steady. The soundtrack is punctuated by howling wolves.

The reels are made up of lower value A to J and 4 higher paying wild animals. In order of value are a rabbit, bird of prey, brown bear and moose. The moose is the highest paying symbol and will get you 20 x your bet if you land 5 on a payline. Better still is the wolf which is the wild. Land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline for an award of 5, 10 or 30 x bet.

You can play Wolf Howl on all devices including PC, tablet and mobile. The simple gameplay works perfectly well on a small screen device. We’ve seen better looking slots than this but it’s a playable mobile slot.

Wolf Howl Slot RTP & Info

The Wolf Howl slot uses a simple 5 reel, 3 row, 10 payline machine. Winners are formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols in a payline, starting from reel 1.

You can join the action from between 10p and £10 per spin. Click on the coins then scroll up or down to change your stake level. Autoplay play is possible too. You can set up to 100 auto spins. Head to the settings if you want to up the pace and play in quick spin mode.

The Wolf Howl RTP rate is 96.15% which is in the middle of pack. Buy the feature and this figure rises to 96.42%. The Wolf Howl volatility is very high so be warned. The most you can win from a single spin is a massive 25,000 x your bet.

Wolf Howl Bonus Features

You won’t find a huge variety of extras in Wolf Howl. The combination of wilds, multipliers and free spins can deliver some pretty serious action though.

Multiplier Wilds feature

On any base game spin, you could see a 2x or 3x multiplier appear to double or treble a payout when they form part of a winning combination.

Better still is if you manage to land more than 1 multiplier wild in the same winning line. In that happy event, the values of the multipliers are combined for an even bigger multiplier boost. For example, land a 2x and 3x multiplier wild in the same winner and payout rockets to the tune of 6x.

Free Spins feature

Wolf Howl slot Free Spins feature

Land 3, 4 or 5 moon scatter symbols on the same spin to trigger the Free Spins feature. Your reward is 8, 15 or 30 free spins.

Boosting your winning chances still further is the Wild Call feature. If a scatter is visible before a free spin, it turns into a multiplier wild. Symbols adjacent to them also turn wild too.

If a wild is already adjacent to a Wild Call scatter, the value of its multiplier rises by 1. It’s possible to land multiple scatters adjacent to an existing multiplier wild. In that case, the multiplier rises by the number of scatters.

Once a wild multiplier is active, it remains that way for the rest of the round. Multipliers can reach up to 5x here. They can combine too to highly lucrative effect. Re-triggers are possible too. Hitting 1 or 2 scatter adds another 2 or 5 free spins to your tally. Land 3 or more scatter for a full re-trigger and 8, 15 or 30 extra free spins.

Scatter Adder feature

The Scatter Adder feature can trigger on any base game spin. You’ll see 2 or 4 extra scatters added to the reels. Basically, your chances of activating the Free Spins feature increases dramatically.

Buy Free Spins feature

Wolf Howl gives you the chance to buy the Free Spins feature if required. It’s certainly not a cheap option. To buy 8, 15 or 30 free spins will set you back 93, 159 or 314 x your total bet. The RTP also increases slightly to 96.42%.

The number of scatter symbols that can appear and where they land varies depending on how many free spins you buy. This of course, can have a big impact on the number of wilds in play courtesy of the Wild Call.

Wolf Howl Thoughts/Opinion – big potential payouts on offer

The Wolf Howl slot might be lacking a little design flair but any visual shortcomings are made up for with the potential max payout of 25,000 x bet. That gameplay is pretty simple but it can really pack a punch courtesy of the multipliers.

The volatility might be a little too fiery for some tastes but if you like high risk, high reward gameplay, Wolf Howl is well worth a look. If you fancy another trip to the wilderness, Playtech’s Buffalo Blitz 2 slot is recommended. In the free spins game, you can play with 14,400 ways to win.
