As one of the oldest and most well-known imaginative creatures, the werewolf is bound to make its way to one of the most modern and rewarding entertainment segment, through no other than Yggdrasil’s 2018 release Wolf Hunter. This slot game takes players on a Transylvania-styled monster-filled adventure, accompanied by the Hunter and Huntress characters leading the gameplay.
Speaking of the gameplay, it is set on a 5×3 reel grid, situated against the dark and gruesome backdrop of an abandoned castle’s entrance. Any glistening light only further adds to the spooky atmosphere, and where it doesn’t succeed, there are the symbols on the reels to help emphasize the theme. The Werewolf is naturally of central importance, and thus has the highest payout potential, followed by a green Holly Water bottle, Silver Bullets and Bear Traps added to capture it.
Card suits appear as low-value symbols, while the Hunter and Huntress characters appear only on specific occasions. Each time the werewolf appears on the reels, one human character shoots it – if they kill the animal, they get 1+ Rage Point and the Werewolf’s strength is reduced by 1, from a max 600. Otherwise, the Werewolf can survive and simply make up a higher paying combination. The Wild and Scatter symbols are the only ones left, with the Wild substituting other symbols for higher payouts as usual, and the Scatter triggering a special feature, as seen below.
The special features aspect of this slot’s gameplay is rather varied, featuring three different free spins bonus rounds. The Rage Free Spins round is triggered when a hunter character collects 100 Rage Points, awarding 7 freebies with the potential for 2 more if 2 Scatters land during the bonus round. The Slayer Free Spins bonus round is triggered when the Werewolf spends all 600 strength points, awarding 10 free spins with the Werewolf landing as a Wild during the round.
Before learning all about the last feature, players should know that the Hunter and Huntress can be upgraded, each by having collected 3 Hunter/Huntress Free Spins symbols. What is more, such an upgrade on each of the two symbols awards 2 Free Spins. As for the third free spins feature, it is the regular Scatter Free Spins bonus round triggered by minimum 2 Scatter Free Spin symbols on the reels, awarding 10 freebies.
What is unique about this bonus round is that whenever a Werewolf lands on the reels, the upgraded Hunter hits and without exception beats the wolf, transforming it into a Wild, expanding 1 reel position up- and downwards. If the upgraded Huntress hits the wolf, it again takes the form of a Wild, but expands one position to the left. Should any Free Spins Scatter symbols land during this round, they add an extra number of freebies.
Yggdrasil’s fall 2018 slot release is just the Halloween treat everyone is hoping to get early this year, with a bet amount ranging from €0.01 to €100, and more than enough paying features worth the investing deposit.
