Turning into a werewolf can’t be the easiest of things that can happen to you. There’s all the cost involved in buying new sets of clothes everytime there’s a full moon. Perhaps that’s how they work out who the werewolf is, just keep a close eye on who’s popping out to buy new clothes the next day.
In this slot from Microgaming, who have been producing some great games for around two decades now, we see a geeky American student. He may be boring most of the time but he becomes a really cool character when turning into a werewolf.
This is a five reel game that has a sensational 243 ways to win. Pardon me if I don’t tell you what they all are but a look through the paytable will reveal all. That’s always a handy thing to do anyway to make sure you fully know how to play the game. A few free games won’t do you any harm either.
The cost of playing this game ranges from £0.50 to £5 so this isn’t a game for hi-rollers. Symbols in this game include our geeky hero, the werewolf that he turns into, two girls who look to be having some fun, cocktails, a cineplex and a pair of sunglasses with some cash that have Howlingwood written on them. There’s also the Jack to Ace symbols that are given a colourful look but they could easily have come up with some more theme-related ones.
The wild symbol in this game is the Cool Wolf symbol and this substitutes for other symbols in the game apart from the scatter symbol. Your chances of making some winning combinations is made a lot easier because there are more than 40 of them stacked on the third, fourth and fifth reels.
The scatter symbol is a wad of notes that simply has ‘scatter’ written on it. A great feature in this game is the rolling reels. At the end of a winning spin you’ll see some claws appear on the reels. This makes the winning symbols disappear and the reels drop down to replace them. This can create more winning combinations.
There’s an autoplay feature available in ‘Cool Wolf’ with a variety of options available for you to choose from.
The main bonus round in this game is a free spins one that gives you plenty of chances to get some wins. This is triggered by getting three of the scatter symbols on the reels at the end of a spin. Three get you 15 free spins, four award you 20 and five sees you receiving a whopping 25 free spins. That’s not all you get though, during the free spins there is also the rolling reels feature and this really helps get you some winning combinations. It’s not possible to retrigger the free spins.
There’s also the Howling Wild feature in this game. This happens at random and when it comes along a whole reel is turned wild. This only happens on the second, third and fourth reels and the rolling reels feature doesn’t come into play.
This is a great little game to play. The graphics in the game look really good and the soundtrack is reasonably entertaining. With the free spins round, the rolling reels and the Howling Wild feature, there really are plenty of opportunities to get some good wins.
