Werewolf Wild Slots Machine
This slot by Aristocrat is set in Victorian London, featuring many symbols relevant to the era including a streetlamp, an old carriage and a vintage penny coin. You’ll also find four character symbols on the reels. The first three are a police officer, a slightly suspicious looking man (the werewolf in human form maybe?) dressed in the style of someone with money and a brown haired maid. The final character is probably the one you want to avoid, especially if you enjoy having limbs – the werewolf himself.
A bridge spans over the river Thames in the backdrop to the slot, with the houses of parliament in the distance, Big Ben towering over the scene. The slot is set at night, with stars sparkling in the sky, while trees and bushes offer a great hiding place for any prowling creatures waiting to pounce. The cream coloured, slightly faded reels, offer a contrast to the night scene, the symbols somewhat basic, but drawn in a cartoon style, giving the slot an element of humour – the horror/comedic feel bringing Scooby Doo to mind. Each spin is accompanied by the clicking sound of the reels, the chimes of Big Ben and the haunting sound of the werewolf adding atmosphere to the slot.
Playing Werewolf Wild
This slot features five reels and the set number of 25 win lines. Your only choice before hitting spin is the coin size which ranges from 2 cents all the way up to four dollars, which you’ll multiply by 25 to give you your stake for each spin.
You’ll win by landing at least three consecutive symbols on a win line from left to right. The man and the maid are the top paying standard symbols, giving you a 500 coin win for landing five in a row, the police officer will be somewhat disappointed to be worth just 400 coins. The carriage and the streetlamp are joined by the playing card symbols from 10 to Ace to complete the standard symbols at the slot.
The werewolf is the wild (somewhat appropriately!) and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. You’ll also find that it is the highest paying symbol at the slot – paying out 1,000 coins when landing five in a row on a win line.
Every time you achieve a win you’ll have the opportunity of gambling. You’ll find a face down playing card, where you’ll either choose the colour of the card to double up, or the correct suit to multiply your win amount by four.
On reel one you’ll occasionally find the penny coin symbol. Should this appear alongside the werewolf on any of the subsequent reels, you’ll be awarded a mystery prize of up to 40x your total stake for each spin
Bonus Features on Werewolf Wild
Randomly awarded bonuses are always a good thing and here you’ll find the ‘Claw Swipe Feature’. This feature can come into play after any spin, with up to 5 symbols being ‘swiped’ and turned into werewolf wilds.
That werewolf appears again on the final symbol at the slot – the scatter. This time the werewolf is seen in silhouette form in front of a full moon. Should you land three scatters, you’ll gain seven free spins, with each additional scatter doubling your amount of spins to a maximum of twenty eight. During the free spins the werewolf actually becomes contagious and will transform any of the three characters touching it at the slot into another contagious werewolf – these potentially spreading across much of the slot. With all these werewolves and wilds on the reels, you’ll gain lots of extra wins, making the feature particularly profitable, especially if you can gain more than the minimum seven spins.
There are a number of slots in the horror genre, but the ‘werewolf on the streets of London’ theme is so specific that it makes this slot somewhat unique. The symbols and the backdrop to the slot give the game some character despite the visuals not being the very latest in design. This game plays very well and has some original features, the best of these being the contagious wilds in the feature round. Add all of this together and you’ll find that Werewolf Wild is a slot that will appeal to all.
