As already mentioned there is not much going on when it comes to special features in the game, with just 2 different features. However there are also a total of 4 different special symbols, with both 2 wilds and 2 scatters in play.
Wilds and Scatters
You will be seeing a total of 2 different wild symbols in play here, with the Coywolf Wild working as a multiplier and giving you 6x your total stake and the Alpha Wild giving you 30x your total stake. Of course, both of these wilds will also be able to substitute all regular symbols as well as scatters of the game. The wilds can also appear as stacked wilds on reels 2 and 4.
Just like the wilds, there are 2 different scatter symbols in play on this slot. There is the Mask scatter that can only appear on the middle reel and will trigger the Wild Reel feature. The other is the Totem scatter that will reward you with free spins.
Wild Reel Feature
This feature will be triggered by landing the Mask scatter on the middle reel and when this happens, the Wild Reel will appear on the top of the reel set and will be spinning horizontally. This Wild Reel will only be containing Alpha Coyotes and black spaces, when the reel stops spinning any Alpha Coyotes on the Wild Reel will expand down to the main reel set in order to give you wild reels.
The Alpha Coywolf wild has a higher value than the standard Coywolf wild, meaning it will be worth 30x your total stake for 5 of a kind, 6x your stake for 4 of a kind and 1x your stake for 3 of a kind.
Prey Free Spins Feature
The main feature of the slot is the Prey Free Spins feature which will be triggered when you land 3 or more Totem scatters anywhere on the reel set. Getting 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols on the reels will reward you with 8, 11 or 15 free spins respectively. Should 3 of the Totem scatters land on the reels simultaneously as the Mask scatter then the Wild Reel feature described above will be triggered before the Prey Free Spins feature starts. Should a Totem scatter as well as an Alpha Coyote land at the same time, they will also be turned into wilds.
This Prey Free Spins Feature will become more powerful as the Wild Mask will be added to the Wild Reel, which in return will give you the possibility to activate the second tier of Wild Reels. Should a Mask scatter land on the reels during a Wild Reel, then it's position will be highlighted while any Alpha Coywolf symbol will expand and fill the reel it has landed on, after this the second tier spin will be triggered.
In the second tier, Multiplier Coywolf Wilds with multipliers of x2, x4 or x7 as well as Totem scatters with 2 or 4 free spins attached will appear. Should a Multiplier Coywolf appear on the reel, it will expand and fill the reel below it. Should a Totem scatter appear, you will be rewarded with more free spins as well as a full reel of Coywolf wilds, even better is the fact that there is no limit to how many free spins you can win.
Design and Symbols
Coywolf Cash is a slot with a theme that has been inspired by Native American culture, meaning you can expect to see plenty of wildlife. In fact, Coywolves are a mixed breed of coyotes and wolves, which we are guessing is exactly what animal is shown along with the logo upon loading the game. In the background you will see what appears to be a forest with not much else going on. The reel set itself has however been framed by beautifully carved wooden beams, complete with some totem animals on each corner of the game and a couple of weapons leaning up against the reel set.
While we are disappointed to see the use of card royals as the low-value symbols in the game, we can at least say that Play'n GO has made sure of designing them in a way that suits the theme of the slot. Symbols showing 10, J, Q, K and A have been created with wooden planks and some carvings on them.
High-value symbols on the slot consist of various wild animals such as a fox, an eagle, a lynx, a wolverine and a black bear. The black bear along with the wolverine are the highest paying symbols giving you 1.6x your total stake for five of a kind.
There are of course the 4 special symbols in the game too. With the Coywolf Wild giving you 6x your stake and the Alpha Wild giving you 30x your stake. Both these wilds are also able to substitute all regular symbols of the game and can appear stacked on reels 2 and 4 during the base game and Prey Free Spins feature. The two scatters consist of a Totem scatter that will activate the Prey Free Spins feature and the Mask scatter that activates the Wild Reel feature.
Our Thoughts on Coywolf Cash
It's no secret that this is far from the first slot with Northern America and Native American history as its theme, but Play'n GO have still managed to make their own little spin on it all to make sure they stand out from the crowd. There are a couple of good features available in the game, making it entertaining to play and is a nice distraction from the main game where not much will be happening.
We are disappointed seeing they have capped the maximum win at 4 000x your total stake, which is clearly much lower than what Play'n GO usually can offer. Take note of the slot being highly volatile and having an RTP of 96.31%. Still, we think there will be plenty of players who will appreciate this slot for what it is, even more so amongst players who specifically enjoy these kinds of Native American-themed slots.
