About the Game
Wolf Hunters looks great. All the action is set beneath a misty moonlit sky with creepy looking buildings standing in the backdrop. In the dead of the night, a horrible beast terrorises the town and the Wolf Hunters are beckoned to join the fight and help you with the bonus slots.
Game symbols include green clubs, blue diamonds, red hearts and purple spades. There are also stakes, poison bottles, monster traps and the werewolf itself.
- Wild symbol - The wild symbol replaces all the other symbols except the scatters. Every wild that lands rewards a respin with all wilds remaining in place.
- Werewolf feature- When the werewolf symbol appears on all the reels, a random werewolf hunter attempts to hit it. If they succeed, the werewolf symbol turns into a sticky wild and gives you an extra respin. Every hit on the werewolf decrease its life by 1.
When its life hits zero, the Slayer Free Spins feature is activated.
Every hit the hunter makes also give that hunter a point i.e. +1 Rage point. When they make it to 100 rage points, the hunter triggers the Rage Free Spin feature.
- Free spin features- There are 3 free spins features;
–Standard free spins
These are triggered when players land 2 Free Spin scatter symbols i.e. the Hunter and Huntress symbols simultaneously while also filling up point collections.
- Scatter Free Spins feature
In this round, players get 10 free spins and the likelihood of winning extra spins by collecting 3 Hunter Free Spin symbols. This upgrades the Hunter and rewards extra free spins. Once upgraded, the werewolf transforms into a wild that expands up and down by 1 position when a Hunter manages a successful hit on the werewolf.
The Huntress can also be upgraded in the same way as the Hunter. If the Huntress manages a hit on the werewolf, the werewolf transforms into a wild that expands towards the left by 1 position. Both the hunters make their attack on the werewolf which increases chances of werewolf symbols becoming wilds which spread all ways- up, down or left.
- Rage Free Spins feature
These spins are played when a hunter collects 100 rage points. The round starts off with 7 free spins. The enraged Hunter is then upgraded for the rest of the feature with no more free spins up for wins.
- Slayer Free Spins feature
The round starts with 10 free spins and plays out when the werewolf’s health level reaches 0. After this no more free spin symbols can be won, but all werewolf symbols transform into wild.
Wolf Hunters is mainly about the 3 free spins features, but it has good winning potential in the main game as wilds transform into sticky wilds with a lot of respins to offer.
The slot has a medium to high variance with maximum wins being 2,500x your stake on each spin/respin/free spin. It's another super release from Yggdrasil Gaming available on S-Baby.
