This IGT Wolf Rising slot provides bigger 5×8 reels with the opportunity to win big thanks to 100 paylines and stacked wilds.
Yes you read that right, this Wolf Rising slot machine comes with 5 columns and 8 reels to provide maximum action.
Set against a backdrop of snowy trees, the online slot sees you staring in to the eyes of a wolf as you spin, something that’s missing in the Wolf Rising mobile slot due to a lack of the space.
However, not to worry mobile slots fans, as there are plenty of wolves to look at as you spin. There are four in fact, each of which represent the higher paying symbols and each cover more than just one symbol.
The two highest being that of the black and white wolves which are three symbols high, followed by the brown and grey wolf taking up two symbols.
It means that there’s more opportunity to create a high paying winning combination, especially as there’s a fair number of symbols to cover 100 paylines
The rest of this IGT slot’s symbols are made up of colourful A, K, Q, J, 10, 9 symbols, a bonus symbol which triggers the free spins and those all important stacked wilds.
One of the features that will no doubt provide you with your biggest wins, whether in the base game or the free spins, of this Wolf Rising slot game is that of the totem stacked wilds.
These appear across all five reels and can cover an entire reel, or partial reel, to hopefully give you a win.
And when you mix the stacked wilds in with the 3 and 2 symbol high wolf symbols and you’ve got a snowy mix of thrills and excitement that is hard to beat.
Thanks to this online slot feature we’ve managed to get some decent 10x – 30x our total bet wins with 48x being our highest during the base game.
If you like your stacked wild slots, then be sure to check out 100 Pandas slot from the same provider, which works very similarly to this Wolf Rising game.
Unlike some other IGT slots where you get some super multipliers and extra bonus game features, the Wolf Rising slot free spins aren’t actually that special.
You trigger them by finding the special bonus symbol across reel 2, 3 and 4, which instantly awards you 2x your bet plus 5 free spins.
Here the reels get darker and the colour of the stacked wilds change from orange to blue. There’s no difference in the amount you can win however, which is a shame as even a 2x multiplier on the stacked wilds would have been something.
In the Wolf Rising online slot the wolf will also turn to face you straight on to add even more tension to the spins.
But we’ve walked away with 4x our bet over 5 spins, and on other occasions over 50x. It’s temperamental at best, and you’ve just got to cross your fingers and hope that these wolves are going to be generous.
And given the fact that it can take up to 100 plus base game spins to trigger these free spins games you can sometimes walk away disappointed.
Yes, but you’ve got to have the budget to spin.
One unfortunate side effect of having a game with 100 paylines is the fact that the minimum bet on this IGT game is 1.00 per spin. Which in itself isn’t too bad but can put more casual gamblers on a back foot – in which case we’d probably recommend NextGen’s WolfPack Pays slot instead.
Big betters can however enjoy spins up to 500 a go, but remember to budget your casino cash.
The medium slot variance, and up to 96.05% return to player rate, does provide plenty of action across these 5×8 reels, but isn’t of finding balance, you either go through periods of lots of wins, or nothing at all.
If you like your wolf slots then you will no doubt like this Wolf Rising video slot. Be sure to check it out and see whether you can become the leader of the pack.
