The wolf, one of the most majestic creatures on earth – strong, loyal and fiercely protective of their pack. Worldwide throughout history, wolves have been revered by some cultures and vilified by others. What would be the best way to pay homage to these magnificent creatures?
A video slot game I say!
On a serious note though, no animals were harmed during the making of Pragmatic Play Wolf Gold. This video slot can be taken for a spin for fun or actual moola. (That sounds hipper than money don’t you think?)
This slot plays really well across both computer and mobile devices, in fact, the mobile version kept me playing for much longer than I had intended. It makes full use of screen rotation which helped me perfect the “look like I’m texting, while I’m actually playing” technique.
A different kind of excitement is evoked by Wolf Gold. The backdrop and the creatures give the game a sense of vintage wild majesty. Everything is distinctly American, so take that cowboy hat out of your “Village People Costume Set” and go wild!
Wolf Gold has a generous 25 paylines over 5 reels and three columns. The symbols are proudly U.S.A – eagle, wild stallion, buffalo, cougar and of course wolf are the animals. They are joined by a combination of face card letters, a moon and a Scatter symbol of the Grand Canyon. Being the critical figure in the game, the wolf is the wild symbol. Controls are intuitively designed with a plus and minus expanding on either side of the spin button. There, you can increase or decrease your coin value or coins per line. A basic autoplay function is also offered.
Free Spins are on offer galore when a player is lucky enough to get three scatter symbols, and if the same happens in your free spin round you get another three free spins, with no limit applied! Three progressive jackpots are also up for grabs.
When six moon symbols land, the Money Respin feature comes into play. Your six moons remain on screen and so do any others that you acquire during the spins (with the repins resetting to three with each new moon.) If you fill all 15 positions by the end of the Money Respin, you win the Mega Jackpot! If not, the monetary value on all moons are added, and the game pays out.
A howling good 250 000 coins is the maximum win in Wolf Gold.
Wolf Golds graphics would be right at home in an old casino off the strip in Vegas, but that just adds to the charm. The pre-spin noises are ambient wildlife, and the music is quite pleasant. The retro feel of both the graphics and the music are driven by some top-notch software, and Wolf Gold performs admirably.
Sometimes slots get too complicated and stray from the fundamental principles that appeal in the first place. Wolf Gold, on the other hand, delivers up all the comfort of the bygone days of classic slots, with some added twists and superb performance. So giddyup cowpoke and get ready for action!
