Wolf Hunters is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can join the slayers on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility with an RTP of 96.30%.
The game is one of the most authentic-looking slots I have seen to date, perfectly conveying the storyline of a werewolf terrorising a medieval town on a full moon night. Misty fog is spreading through the streets adding to the creepy factor – the perfect hour for the ferocious werewolf to go on his preying tours. Time for the town folks to call the two wolf hunters into action. They stand on each side of the game window with their own rage meter, which will trigger the hunter free spins once it is filled up. A harrowing soundtrack is finely tuned to the action on the reels. Cries of the werewolf and the hunters add a dramatic effect when they engage on the reels.
The pay symbols start at the low end with blue diamonds, green clubs, purple spades and red hearts, held on wooden planks and awarding 2.5x to 3.5x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by silver stakes, green poison bottles, monster traps and a ferocious looking red-eyed werewolf. Hit five on a line to win 7.5x to 25x your bet.
The red-eyed werewolf will turn into a sticky wild for a respin when one of the hunters successfully slays the beast. Standard wilds are intricate golden icons marked with the word itself. Bonus scatters are the male hunter appearing on reel one only and the female huntress appearing on reel five respectively.
The entire gameplay is centred on three rage meters, one for each hunter on either side of the game window and one for the wolf sitting on top. The two hunter meters are randomly set at either 50 and 20 points out of 100 when you load the game first time. In turn, the wolf meter is set at 600. Any progress will be saved between sessions.
Every time a wolf symbol lands, one of the two hunters is randomly chosen to attack him. One point is added to the respective hunter meter when they successfully slay the wolf while at the same time the wolf rage meter is reduced by one point. The game continues as normal when the wolf prevails.
Landing a standard wild or after a successful slay will see the wild turn sticky for the Respin feature. Any further wilds appearing or transformed wilds from more successful slays will be locked in place as well and another respin awarded. The feature continues until no new wild is generated on a respin or the screen is filled with sticky wilds. Wins are evaluated and paid after each respin.
Wolf Hunters has no less than three Free Spins modes – standard free spins, the hunter free spins and the slayer free spins. Each comes with a distinct reel modifier and power upgrades. In all types of free spins, the chance to win a wolf fight is substantially increased.
The standard Free Spins are triggered by hitting a hunter bonus symbol on reel one and a huntress bonus symbol on reel five in one spin. The game awards 10 free spins with power upgrades for each hunter. Collecting three hunter or huntress bonus symbols in the respective power meter will award two extra free spins and all wilds from successfully slaying the wolf will turn into expanding wilds. It will expand to the left by one position when the hunter slays the wolf and one position up and down when the huntress gets a hit on the beast. The bonus symbols are removed from the reels once the respective hunter has been upgraded. The feature ends when no free spins are left.
The Hunter Free Spins are awarded when either of the rage meters on each side of the game window hits 100 points. During the 10 free spins, the enraged hunter is instantly upgraded for the duration of the bonus round. The feature is played with the average bet used throughout the points collection. The enraged hunter meter is reset after the free spins.
The Slayer Free Spins are triggered when the wold health meter on top of the game window is reduced from 600 to zero. The game will award 10 slayer free spins. During the feature, all werewolf symbols turn instantly wild and expand to cover the entire reel. The feature is played with the average bet used throughout the points reduction. No wolf fights will happen, or rage points collected during the feature. The counter is reset to 600 after the end of the round.
Intense slotting awaits anyone daring to face the beastly creature on Wolf Hunters. Stunning animations and the flurry of features will keep you on the edge in every session. The overall win potential peaks at 500x for a single spin for a full screen of sticky wilds, although you will have to add the wins from the respins that will lead to the full screen.
