Wolf Hunters Slot
Yggdrasil Gaming has just released a brand new video slot where night has fallen and the Wolf Hunters have been summoned. Players will have to deal with the werewolf on the reels, but if one of the hunters manage to stop it, the wolf will turn wild. The video slot has three freespin modes, which means there won't be any shortage of action in the game. Wolf Hunters comes with an RTP of 96.1% and medium variance. The theme and the ambience in the slot get across, but we had higher hopes for the visuals. With a gothic-looking city in the background and symbols like the werewolf, the wolf hunters and bottles of poison as symbols, Yggdrasil has gotten all the details in place.
Design and symbols
A dark and mysterious castle is what awaits players in Wolf Hunters, a place where the ferocious werewolf hides. Two unnamed characters, simply known as the Huntress and the Hunter will help players along the way to slay the werewolf while landing (hopefully) massive winnings. There are 7 symbols which will create a winning round when 3 or more are lined up, the werewolf is the most valuable one. Other symbols include silver bullets, green poison and bear traps which all act as equipment to kill the werewolf. Additionally, players will find four card suits along with the wild symbol.
As previously mentioned, Wolf Hunters has three separate free spin features along with the wild symbol. The Werewolf, The Hunter and Huntress and Wilds. While the werewolf symbol simply acts as a high paying symbol in the main game, when defeated by the Wolf Hunters it will turn into a sticky wild. The video slot also has a sticky wild symbol that will award players with re-spins along with two other free spin symbols that can activate free spins.
The werewolf is the highest paying symbol but also functions as a wild. When it lands on any reel in the game, one of the two hunters will try to hit it and if successful, the symbol will then turn into a sticky wild. At the same time, one re-spin will be awarded. If the hunters are not successful, the werewolf will simply act as a regular high-value symbol.
The Hunter and Huntress
Each time the werewolf appears on the reels, one of the hunters, chosen at random, will try to attack. If the hunter is successful, he or she will be awarded 1 rage point. When either hunter has gained 100 rage points, the hunter will activate the free spins mode. Also, when the game has been loaded for the first time, one of the two hunters will be awarded 70 rage points while the other will receive 30 rage points.
In each round where a wild symbol lands on a wheel, a re-spin will be triggered where all wild symbols will be sticky wilds. Wilds have the power to replace all regular symbols in the game and can land on the reels in both the main game as well as all three free spins features.
Our thoughts on Wolf Hunters
Yggdrasil Gaming has done an overall great job with the Wolf Hunters video slot, however, there are a couple of issues we would have like to see executed better. One point being the free spins modes, where players should be aware that some work and patience is needed to actually trigger these. The sticky wilds are what really save the video slot in terms of chances of winning substantial amounts of cash. This is still a slot we would play again thanks to the exciting theme and the different free spins modes, even with them being hard to trigger.
