A rugged scene from a plateau in the American West. where serves as the background to a simple game window. A range of wild animals found in those regions populate the reels while a generic soundtrack is occasionally interrupted by owl and wold howling.
Wolf Gold has eight regular pay symbols starting with Js through to As at the low end. Hit five on a line to win 2x your stake. They are followed by pumas, mustangs, eagles and buffalos, paying 8x to 20x your bet for a single five of a kind. The wolf is the wild symbol, appearing stacked at all times and paying as well 20x your bet for a 5OAK. A picture of the plateau at sunset marked with the word itself is the scatter symbol.
While the maximum win per spin in the base gamepeaks at 500x your bet for a full screen of wild wolf symbols, there is much more up for grabs in the two bonus features – Money Respins and Blazin’ Reels Free Spins.
Full moon symbols marked with a random money value from 1x to 25x the total stake can appear on the reels in the base game and free spins. Hitting a minimum of six in one spin will trigger the Money Respin feature where you can cash prizes and three fixed jackpots. Initially, you will get three respins with the triggering symbols will be locked in place. The aim is to hit more money symbols before you run out of respins. All new money symbols landing will be locked and reset the counter to three. This continues until you either run out of respins or the entire screen with money symbols.
All money values in view are added and paid at the end of the feature. A Midi or Major symbol landing during the respins will award the respective fixed jackpot – 30x for the Midi and 100x for the Major. The two smaller jackpots can be won multiple times in a round. Filling the entire screen with money symbols will award the Grand Jackpot of 1,000x your total stake.
Scatters landing on reels one, three and five in one spin will trigger five Blazin’ Reels Free Spins., which cannot be retriggered as such but hitting three scatters again during the feature will award +3 free spins. The kicker in the bonus round are the giant symbols. Reels two, three and four are combined and contain only 3×3 mega symbols, providing the potential to score big wins.
Wolf Gold is a very playable slot with medium volatility that produces regularly medium to large sized wins. The features hit often enough to avoid boredom while the stacked wilds can be good for a surprise on any spin. The overall maximum win potential of 2,500x bet sounds though rather far-fetched as it would require at least a few full screens of wild symbols during the free spins. No easy feat to achieve that.
