Cool Wolf Slots

One look at the title of the slot might make you think that this is a game all about a wolf which lives in the arctic. However, you couldn’t be more wrong, as this is a high school based game, where one of the male students has the slightly unusual habit of turning into a werewolf. This student is clearly at the geek end of the spectrum, but would like to impress the two cheerleaders who frequent the reels – and his alter ego werewolf persona certainly makes him cooler. The slot is loosely based upon the 1985 movie ‘Teen Wolf’ starring Michael J. Fox and has a large number of features, including randomly awarded wilds, a free spins round and the ‘rolling reels’ format.

The game is set in the town of Howlingwood at the Cineplex, with the reels being shown on the big screen, with flashing bulbs surrounding the border. The symbols on the reels are drawn in a cartoon style and feature animation when forming part of a win line. This gives the slot a sense of humour and makes for an entertaining game, especially when the werewolf makes an appearance. The combination of symbols makes for a very colourful game, which is only added to by the bright and bold playing card symbols that complete the reels. A guitar tune plays throughout, taking you back to the era of the original film.

Playing Cool Wolf

Cool Wolf is a five reel slot which offers you 243 ways to win. This means that instead of the more usual win lines. Here you’ll gain a win when landing symbols on 3 or more adjacent reels from left to right, irrespective of the position on the reels. The highest paying symbol in the game is the student/werewolf who pays 500 coins when hitting five in a row.

Every time you land a win, the rolling reels format comes into play. This sees all of the winning symbols scratched with claw marks and then disappearing with the symbols from above falling into their place (new symbols will appear at the top of the reels). You can also win with the new positioning of the symbols, and the winning ones will once again disappear, this continuing until you fail to manage a win. All of these added wins come at the cost of just the original spin.

The title symbol of the slot acts as the wild and only appears on reels 3, 4 and 5 where it is stacked. There are actually more than 40 wilds at this slot which is many more than usual, so you’ll see them filling up much of the final reels on a large number of spins. If you want even more wilds, there is also a ‘howling wild’ feature which will randomly turn reels 2, 3 or 4 completely wild, guaranteeing you a win – the animation sees the student turn into the werewolf and is both impressive and funny.

Despite all of the features listed above, the best is yet to come! The scatter symbol is represented by the stubs of cinema tickets and landing two or more of these across any of the reels will see you given an immediate win. However, three or more will also see you activate the free spins feature. The number of spins you have is based upon the number of scatters, with 3, 4 or 5 giving you 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively.

These free games play differently from the base game. Every time you gain a win and the rolling reels kick into action, the multiplier will increase, increasing again as each win is achieved, up to a maximum multiplier of 10x. This multiplier is reset to 1x when no more wins are achieved and you move on to the next spin. The only downside to the feature is the fact that it cannot be retriggered.

Final Verdict

It’s a tough job of finding anything critical to say about the ‘Cool Wolf’ slot. Each and every spin keeps you on your toes as the features come thick and fast. The ‘rolling reels’ is perhaps the best aspect of the slot, as you sit back and watch win after win come in for the cost of just one spin and this only improves when the multipliers kick in during the feature. Throw in the stacked wilds and the randomly awarded wild reels and you’ve got a game that is hard to match for action. MicroGaming has produced an entertaining, involving and high octane slot – highly recommended.
