Wolf Gold slot is from the Malta-based provider Pragmatic play, who are increasingly finding a presence among the multi-platform casinos. Their games tend to have very crisp and bright graphics and innovative features. Wolf Gold is no different with its theme centred around North American wildlife and a tinkling sound as the reels spin and the reassuring ‘snick’ as they come to a stop, almost identical to the sounds EGT slots have. So how much gold can this wolf provide us?
On the reels…
There are 25 pay lines with 5 reels of 3 rows, and naturally the Wolf is the premium symbol being the stacked Wild on all reels paying 20x bet for 5-of-a-kind but he doesn’t have total supremacy as the mighty Bison pays the same and like all the other symbols appears singly. Flying high is the Eagle at 16x, then the Cougar at 12x and the Mustang at 8x stake. Card values make the remaining standard symbols and all 4 pay 2x stake for the 5.
There are 2 other special symbols which are very important though – the Night Moon appears stacked on all reels and triggers a bonus jackpot game if 6 or more stop in view. They have random cash amounts displayed on them, but this is not relevant unless the jackpot game is triggered. The Minor and Major jackpot awards also appear on them and if they are present when 6 or more appear you will be guaranteed them as well as the chance for the Mega jackpot.
If 6 or more have appeared, all other symbols disappear from the grid and the night Moons and their cash or Minor/Major awards stay in place, Then you get 3 respins with only blanks or Night Moons on the reels. The objective is to fill the whole grid up with 15 for the Mega jackpot, similar to Netent’s Divine Fortune jackpot game. Any Moon landing resets the respins at 3 and they end either when the respins run out or the Mega is won. When they finish you get the total of cash awards showing and any Minor or Major you may have won.
Big block bonus
We haven’t run out of symbols yet! There remains on reels 1, 3 and 5 a desert Mesa lit up by the sunset and landing all 3 will trigger 5 free games. There is no multiplier but the centre 3 reels become formed of only giant 3×3 block symbols including the Wolf Wild. Each spin one will land fully in view while the end reels spin slowly so you hope reel 1 at least matches when it stops first. You can retrigger it for 3 more spins each time you land a row of Mesas. In this round lies the best hope of the 500x bet top award for a screen of Wolf Wilds!
Wolf Gold is a very entertaining game with high win frequency and a equally good RTP of 96.00%. The free spins bonus is quite exciting especially when getting a good block symbol in the centre and seeing if reel 1 stops in the right postion. The Night Moons jackpot bonus has the benefit of some quite big cash awards when you don’t land any of the jackpots but get the ‘right’ Moons land, as some can display some significant awards. It is not the most original theme, as we have seen it many times before with slots like Coyote Moon from IGT and Aristocrat’s Buffalo slot. However, this does certainly not detract from the game. I have yet to see a poor Pragmatic Play slot, this game included; I would definitely take a trip across the Prairie….
