Wolf Hunters slot review – Free play DEMO
Fans of the popular werewolf genre will enjoy playing this Wolf Hunters slot game. Your goal is to free the town from terror by slaying the menacing werewolf.
Developed by innovative online gaming provider Yggdrasil, the graphics are sharp, the storyline is detailed, and the creativity is such that you can lose yourself in the game for hours. Plus, the payout isn’t too bad, either.
The goal of this game is to battle the werewolf until its health drops from 600 to zero. There are 5 reels and 3 rows in this game. You have a total of 20 different possible paylines.
The basic premise is the same as with all slot games: There are 7 regular symbols that payout if 3 or more are lined up in a sequence on a payline.
To make things more interesting, there are also 4 high pay symbols: Werewolf, Magic Potion, Wolf Trap, and Stake, and two different Bonus symbols that only appear on reels 1 and 5.
And, of course, there are Wilds!
Every time the werewolf appears on the reels, one of the hunters attacks it. If the hunter wins the fight, the symbol turns into a Wild. Every new Wild symbol triggers a re-spin, with the Wilds staying sticky. You get re-spins until no new Wilds appear on the reels.
There are 3 Free Spin modes:
- Regular – Hunters are twice as likely to win their battle and turn the werewolf symbol into a Wild during regular Free Spins.
- Collectible hunter Free Spins – start with the hunter’s spreading Wilds skills already active
- Collectible slayer Free Spins – All werewolf symbols automatically turn into Wilds without the battle.
The regular Free Spins can be reached by hitting 2 Free Spin scatters simultaneously, while the other two are reached by filling up collections.
The game starts with both hunter collections half-filled. There is also a starting bonus that awards you free “rage points.” You need to collect 100 of these to trigger hunter Free Spins.
Upgrades are another possibility in this game. Once you have collected 3 Bonus symbols for one hunter, that hunter gets upgraded. This means that the hunter is guaranteed to win each fight against the beast, as long as he/she is still in “upgrade” mode.
In other words, you are going to get many more Wilds. You also get awarded 2 extra Bonus spins when you achieve an upgrade.
Wild – substitutes all regular symbols. Landing any amount of Wilds results in 1 re-spin. All Wilds are sticky. Landing consecutive Wilds during re-spins awards more re-spins.
Werewolf – A random hunter attacks each werewolf symbol that appears on the board. Winning the fight transforms the werewolf into a Wild, reduces its health by one point, and increases the hunter’s rage by 1 point.
Bonus – Landing “bonus” symbols on reels 1 and 5 in the base game awards 10 Free Spins. Hunters have a higher chance of winning their fights during Free Spins.
Hunter Upgrades – This triple vertical diamond symbol on each side of the slot machine shows the hunter’s power. You power up each hunter by collecting 3 of their Bonus symbols during Free Spins. “Powering up” (aka collecting three upgrades) awards 2+ Free Spins and all Wilds from the werewolf expand. For the male hunter, the expansion spreads to the left of the hunter card. For the female hunter (huntress), the expansion spreads up and down from her card.
Hunter Free Spins – Filling a hunter’s rage meter awards 10 hunter Free Spins with the hunter powered-up. New players receive 50 and 20 rage points for their hunters.
Slayer Free Spins – You earn 10 slayer Free Spins once you have reduced the werewolf’s health to 0. During slayer Free Spins, all werewolf symbols are automatically transformed into Wilds and then expanded.
High Pay Symbols – Werewolf (up to 500 points), Magic Potion (up to 200 points), Wolf Trap (up to 250 points), and Stake (up to 150 points)
Low Pay Symbols – Chevron(up to 70 points), Spade (up to 60 points), Clover (up to 50 points), and Diamond (up to 50 points)
What Makes This Game Special
Wolf Hunters is designed to have a spooky, Gothic feel to it. The background is an imposing castle and the slot face itself features a menacing-looking werewolf head with burning red eyes overlooking the reel area. The jewel-toned colors of the different symbols contrast nicely with the dark background.
The designers used the iSENSE 2.0+ development platform to give the game a minimalistic UI for both mobile and desktop use.
One of the novel features of this game is that landing the werewolf symbol does not automatically guarantee anything. There is an extra level of chance in which the beast and the hunter must battle to determine whether the outcome is successful for the player or not.
There are also different types of Free Spins. This enhances both your chances of winning big and your enjoyment of the game because there are more play options.
Additionally, the hunters have a “special skill” that you can activate: spreading Wilds.
