Free Wolf Moon Slots
The name Wolf Moon might well conjure up images of a somewhat dark slot, filled with werewolves and the sound of howling, but this game by Aristocrat has a very different feel, actually featuring a number of different, colorful animals on the reels alongside the wolves.
The game is slightly unique from the start as you’ll immediately notice that there are six reels instead of the more usual five and each of these reels actually hold four symbols as opposed to the standard three.
Due to these oversized reels, you’ll find the ‘Xtra Reel Power’ format in place, ensuring that wins will be paid all-ways, with the best payouts reserved for when landing 6 in a row!
How to Win on the Wolf Moon Slot
To land a win at Wolf Moon you’ll need to land a symbol on at least 3 consecutive reels from left to right, this regardless of the position on the reels due to the ‘Xtra Reel Power’ format. With six reels, the largest payouts are reserved for when you land six in a row, with the wolf face symbol being the highest paying of all at 625 coins. The two cubs silhouetted against the moon and a grizzly bear come next at 500 coins, while a moose, some puffins (check out these puffins, it looks like two of them are ganging up on the other – this is the only slot online where you might feel sorry for a puffin) and the playing card characters from 9 to Ace complete the symbols on the reels.
The wild symbol is the moon rising in the sky and appears on reels 3 and 4 only. This will substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter – the wild moon really coming into its own when the feature comes around.
This featured is called the ‘Lucky Zone’ and is activated by the green star scatter symbol. You’ll win an immediate award based upon your total stake when landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 of these scatters but more importantly you’ll also start the free spins. If landing the minimum 3 scatters you’ll have 12 free spins, while 4, 5 or 6 scatters will see you win 24, 30 or 40 spins respectively. This is where the ‘Lucky Zone’ comes in. The center four symbols of the slot will now see a box placed around them and you’ll be hoping to land a wild symbol in this box. A single wild will now turn into four, as the whole of the Lucky Zone will now turn wild. This isn’t the end of it however, as each time the Lucky zone is filled you’ll also have a free re-spin which will ensure the wins keep coming.
How the Wolf Moon Slot Works
With the Xtra Reel Power in action, you’ll actually find you have an amazing 4,096 ways to win. Fortunately you won’t have to pay for all of these ways to win, each spin coming at the cost of a simple 50 credits. You can play each of these credits for as little as just 1c, ranging all the way through to $2.50 – making for a maximum total stake per spin of $125.
Attached to the spin button is an auto spin panel where you’ll set the number of automatic spins using the up and down arrows. This isn’t the most straightforward auto spin option, with maybe one or two more clicks required than you actually need, but is a good option for those who want to sit back and enjoy the slot.
The background to the slot is a purple sky with tall trees and clouds illuminating the night. The reels have a dark blue background, which is a nice contrast to the very colorful range of symbols. The standout symbol s are the face of the wolf, who looks out at you with a calm and slightly menacing air, and the moon, which rotates when forming part of a win line. Throughout your play you’ll hear the general hubbub sound of a casino, with a combination of voices, the sound of the slots and the occasional celebration. This is joined by the sound of the reels and an upbeat jingle every time a win is achieved.
Wolf Moon Slot Conclusion
Wolf Moon is a slot that will appeal to those who enjoy their slot gaming a little different. The unique layout of the reels and the all ways win format is unusual enough in itself, but it’s the free spins feature that is perhaps the most original. Seeing that wild appear in the Lucky Zone will get the pulses racing and almost certainly see a nice increase in your bankroll. Aristocrat has produced a game here that you’ll play again and again.
