Werewolf Wild Slot Review
Werewolf Wild is a 5 reel, 25 payline game made by Aristocrat. The werewolf is a mythological human with the ability to morph into a wolf or half wolf/ half human creature, either on purpose or involuntarily. The myth started in medieval times and is still popular fiction today just like witches and vampires are. I guess we all like to be scared a bit.
In people’s perception nowadays, certainly influenced by horror novels and movies, werewolves are sometimes thought of only being able to transform under a full moon. In this game the werewolves are your friends and can make you win nicely. Werewolf Wild features scatters, a wild symbol, a free spin bonus a claw swipe feature, a gamble option and a mystery coin feature.
The highest paying symbol is the werewolf – get 5 werewolf symbols on an active payline and you’ll receive 1,000 times your stake. The minimum bet is 25p with the max bet is £50 per spin. The werewolf is a wild symbol and can replace any other symbol except for the gold coin and werewolf howling at the moon scatter symbols. The full moon and the gold coins are scatter symbols. The full moon scatter will multiply your wins by 2, 10 or 50 times based on the number of full moon scatter symbols.
The gold coin only appears on reel 1 and serves to trigger the Mystery Coin feature. When you get 1 coin anywhere on reel 1 and one or more werewolf on the reels, you will get a random multiplier of up to 40 times your stake. Then you have the Claw Swipe feature which is activated randomly when you get 1 or more werewolf claw on any reel – it will change any symbol into a werewolf. You can get between1 to 5 claw swipes in a spin which means up to 5 wilds.
The main attraction is the Werewolf’s Touch Bonus feature which is triggered when you land three of more full moon symbols simultaneously in any position on the reels. The number of scatter symbols is proportional to the number of free spins you get – 3 scatters will give you 7 free spins, 4 will give you 14, and 5 full moons will award you 28 free spins.
What is interesting is that during the feature, if a werewolf appears on the reels it infects any human symbol (gentleman, lady and policeman) adjacent to a werewolf, and these new werewolves infect other humans nearby as well. These are known as Contagious Wilds and can reward you very handsomely.
The Werewolf Wild slot is very exciting with all its features. The winnings for regular combinations are generally low but you will win bigger when you play the free spins or Claw Swipe feature. I found this game to be a medium to high variance game which is perfect for me. If you like Aristocrat slots, you should also check out Miss Kitty and Choy Sun Doa.
