Pragmatic Play are quickly becoming one of our favourite game developers in the industry, and it’s no surprise with their wonderful variety of slots and each instalment in their Gold series seemingly topping the previous. The Wolf Gold slot is a classic 3x5 reel set up with 25 active paylines and a medium variance at an RTP of 93.99%.
Whilst this may not be the most graphically advanced video slot on the market, as always with Pragmatic Play, they do the basics extremely well. The visuals are crisp, clean and stylised with vivid hues that accentuate a decent set of animations – the best of which being the howling wolf that fills the entire screen whenever triggered.
The designs, as with predecessors, are semi-realistic with exaggerated, high contrast colours; aside from the standard card values, your symbols range from buffalos and horses to the wild cougar and bald eagle. All of this is set against the same beautiful background of the picturesque American desert that features in so many of the developer’s other titles.
The red rock of the Western landscape forms the foundation for the game board itself and the reels are furnished with the gold that the name promises. That, paired with the fantastic soundtrack that scores every win and the entire game as a whole, makes that a truly transportive slot.
What’s more is that the game’s classic, arcadey casino floor feel that is captured in its gameplay is only further emphasised by it’s perfectly sufficient and accessible selection of bonuses. In summary, this yet another no-frills but fun-filled slot with plenty of style and just as much substance.
The Wolf Gold slot's bonuses and features are rather run of the mill but still add plenty of excitement to what is an already tantalising traditional style slot.
Your scatter symbol for this slot is the iconic red rock of the American desert set in gold text and frame. Landing 3 of these will earn you 5 free spins and when triggered, reels 2-4 will expand into one giant symbol. If you land 3 or more scatters during these free spin rounds, you’ll be awarded another 3 free spins each time. Keep in mind, it only lands on reels 1, 3 and 5, but it still has the potential to increase your winnings.
The Money Symbol, displayed as a full moon, holds the key to a couple of bonuses. Not only can it help you win one of 3 jackpots, but should you be able to land 6 of them, you will trigger the Money Respin feature: this will replace all symbols with the money symbol, earning you 3 free spins which can be chained into more each time another money symbol appears.
Following on from the Money Respin feature, after the respins have finished and the winning combinations have paid out, the standard symbols vanish and what remains on the reels are either with empty spaces or Money Symbols. Depending on how many full moons are on display, you can win either a Mini or a Major Jackpot. If fortune is well and truly in your favour and you manage to fill the whole board of 15 symbols, you will win the Mega Jackpot worth a whopping 1000x your stake.
Once again, the Wolf Gold RTP is 96%: that, paired with all these bonus features and now this gigantic jackpot on top, is sure to get you howling! Now, without further ado, let’s teach you how to play.
If you played slots before, this will all be familiar to you: land on 3 or more matching symbols on an active payline to make a winning combination. Naturally, the more symbols the more credits you will earn and symbols vary in worth with the most valuable, aside from the wolf wild itself, being the buffalo symbol.
Controls wise, if you have played any of the other entries in the series, you will find that the interface is identical. This is a welcome addition as the HUDs (heads-up displays) from Pragmatic Play are part of what makes their games so slick looking and smooth to play. Your main spin button, bet adjusters and autoplay function are all isolated into one multi-faceted control located in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
This leaves all your other information like your total amount credits, bet value, paytable and all your other advanced settings on the left-hand side. Last but certainly not least, your winnings are displayed centre screen after each successful spin, with a useful combo indicator below to help you memorise possible individual payouts.
Once you’ve got your settings how you like them and you’ve set your bet value, you should be about ready to go out on the prowl. Ready, set, spin!
