Players looking to play a video slots that’s got a ‘light’ touch to it can try out NetEnt’s Wolf Cub. It features 20 paylines, 5 reels and offers a top non-progressive jackpot prize of 2,000 coins. As always the NetEnt games never disappoint from a visual perspective; the graphics are vibrant and punctuated with sharp animations that’s almost cartoon like.
Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see a snow-capped forest that features all kinds of animals. The game is playable on desktops and mobile devices (Androids, iPhones, iPads or tablets) for real cash or in the free mode.
The theme of the slots pays homage to a wolf cub which you’ll see to the left side of your screen which becomes animated after every winning spin. The wild symbol is the wolf’s paw and central to the game is its decadent free spins feature that awards you up to a howling 115 free spins. There’s also a stacking symbol that pitches now and again on reel 1. When it appears it spreads to the left of reel 1 leaving a blizzard trail.
Paying icons that appear across the reels are owls, snow leopards, moose, bears, wolf cubs, scatters and the usual cards symbols. The symbols that offers the biggest win is the wolf cub (Wild), hit 5 of them on an active payline and you’ll win 600 coins. Since it’s a medium variance slots the theoretical return to player (RTP) percentage is 96.34%. The symbol that offers the biggest cash prize is the wild, 5 of them at the maximum wager pays you 2,000 coins or 100x your line bet.
The coin range is very diverse it starts off with 20 pence up to £200 per spin. If you don’t want to spin the reels manually you can use the ‘Auto Play’ button which spins the reels automatically for you. The audio of the slots is pretty upbeat too.
The scatter symbol is the moon with the word silhouette in it, 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels triggers the free spins mode. Every reel that contains a scatter symbol spin will be replaced with numbers on those reels. In return the numbers are totaled giving you the amount of free spins you’ll receive-up to 115 free spins are up for grabs.
Whilst the free spins feature is active it also comes with a ‘Blizzard’ feature which is triggered when a stacked symbol appears on reel 1. In other words the stacked symbol doesn’t only transform the reel but takes it over in its entirety. You’ll receive additional symbols when the spread out towards reel 1. This is how it works. When 3 wilds pitch on the first reel and if it appears at the bottom and top rows of the fifth reel-it spreads out giving you wilds on both the top and bottom rows. The net result is a spectacular win, the higher the symbols the better the payout.
Wolf Cub didn’t blow me away although it is a medium variance slots that offers decent wins during the free spins feature especially when the ‘Blizzard’ feature is triggered. It’s a nice looking slots with clear-cut visuals with okay base game wins.
