Well, North America is quite an interesting region for all sorts of media and games, so it is not quite a surprise that Just For The Win decided to offer us a glimpse of the American wildlife. They truly managed to incorporate something new and exciting in Wolf Howl, a 5 reel, 3-row game that offers us 10 paylines, and a nice bunch of interesting and quite rewarding features.
Just like the name says it, this game is inspired by wolves but you shouldn't be afraid of them in this case. The graphics of the game are quite rough, but it looks like the provider did it on purpose. When it comes to my honest opinion, I think they made something quite ''ordinary'', but still eye-catching and entertaining enough to make you stay for a while.
The background of the game shows us a classic wolf winter terrain with a lot of snow and woods all around. From the back of the grid, you can see some light that looks like a campfire, and it lights the background up pretty good. The soundtrack is quite boring and maybe not so well incorporated with the theme, but the wolf howls throughout make for an authentic experience.
When it comes to the symbols, there are the low paid symbols represented by the card royals, and of course, the high paid symbols represented by bunnies, eagles, bears, and mosses as the most rewarding ones. The wild symbol is represented by the wolf, and the scatter is reserved for the full moon, an object that you will definitely love to see all over the grid.
The RTP of the game is at a respectful 96.15%, and the volatility is set at high. But one of the main things that really makes this game stand out on market is the payouts that go up to 25000 times the stake. The betting range is quite obscure if you like bet risky, with the minimum bet at 0.10 coins per spin, and the maximum bet at thin 10 coins per spin.
When it comes to the features, the base game itself is not so rich in options, but still, it offers us a few surprises. There is a randomly activated feature called the Scatter Adder Feature, which will provide you with 2 to 4 scatter symbols creating a really nice chance to enter the holy grail of the game, the Free Spins feature.
This feature is activated when you land from 3 to 5 scatters anywhere on the reels, after which you will automatically be rewarded with 8 to 30 free spins. The awesome thing about this game is that whenever a scatter symbol lands on the reels, you will automatically receive a number of additional free spins and with no limits. You can get from 2 to 30 extra free spins depending on how many scatters did you collect.
When you get extra scatters in free spins, you will also activate the Wild Call feature, which will take all spots on the grid that are adjacent to the scatter symbol and turn them into wilds. If they already are wild symbols they get combined to offer a multiplier. The multiplier can rise up to 5x in the free spins, and also if you get more wilds with multipliers to form a winning combination, they will multiply each other so you can expect some really awesome wins. The main thing about the Wild Call feature is that it is triggered after the payout has been made for that round, so the wilds that you get will be used for the rest of the free spins.
Also, if you don't want to wait for the free spins, the provider offered us an option to buy free spins. This way you also can get 8, 15, or 30 free spins, and for that, you will need to pay 90x, 159x, or 314x the stake.
