Have you got the moves? Then get ready to groove with the Rockabilly Wolves on the slot from JustForTheWin, exclusively distributed via Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. Travel back to the 1950s with respins in the base game as well as a free spins round with sticky wilds and progressive multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 2,400 times your stake.
Rockabilly Wolves is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are paid for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can show your best moves on desktop, mobile and tablet from 0.10 to 50 credits per spin. The high variance game has an RTP of 96.03%.
We have yet again the feeling that another Microgaming slot has been produced on the cheap. A generic background holds a simple geometric reel set that lets you think at first sight that there might be four rows on the centre reels. But nope, it is the standard three. The visuals are almost too cartoonish and bring up the question of what the UKGC or other regulators thought when they approved the game for release. The only thing up til now that gives this game a good vibe is the rockabilly 50s soundtrack.
The low-value symbols are clumsily designed card royals from J through to A, each paying 1.5x bet for a five of a kind. They are followed by fully-stacked cherries, 8-balls, slot logos and wolf wilds. Pays for a five of a kind range from 6x to 20x your stake. The wilds appear in two variations in the free spins, both non-stacked. A free spins icon acts as the scatter.
There isn’t much more to report than that you will be enjoying double teaser spins in the base game. Land only two scatters in one spin and you earned yourself a single respin to hit the third. Since they only appear on the centre reels, this is not really a full respin but will surely get you the missing scatters once in a while.
Three scatters in a spin will trigger 9 free spins, which cannot be retriggered as such but you will get the chance to win +3 extra spins. The triggering scatter on reel three will turn into a multiplier sticky wild that will be locked in place for the duration of the feature.
During the free spins, the stacked wilds are replaced with standard and multiplier sticky wilds. Each landing will lock as well in place for the remaining free spins while the multiplier version increases the win multiplier by x1 for each occurrence, up to a maximum of x6. Should there be at least on sticky wild on each reel by the end of the round, you’ll get to enjoy three extra free spins.
To hit the top win of 2,400 times your stake you will need a full screen of wild symbols or in combination with slot logo icons and the x6 multiplier.
Visually, Rockabilly Wolves is just about acceptable, however, to play the slot can turn quickly into a borefest as the base game has nothing special to give. While the creations from JustForTheWin are among the better ones that are supplied to Microgaming under their partner program, they still lack an element of surprise or extra suspense. We thought the respin would make the base game at least somewhat suspenseful but we gave up after it missed to add the third scatter 12 times in a row.
