Wolf Gold, the latest hit from Pragmatic Play, is a Native American-themed game featuring 5 reels and 25 paylines. The game is loaded with great features, including Free Spins and Money Respins. Free Spins in Wolf Gold allow players to win unlimited free spins, as well as benefit from giant symbols that can fill the 3 middle reels. Money Respins allow players to collect moon symbols, and if you can get 15 of them, you win a Mega Jackpot that is 1000x your original wager!
The Game Design of Wolf Gold
Wolf Gold takes place on the plains of the American West, incorporating a Native American theme with lots of animals such as wolves, horses, bobcats, bisons and eagles included as game symbols. The backdrop of the game is a desert canyon. The game looks and feels just like a live casino slot game, with the reel sounds a lot less artificial than some other games this reviewer has played recently. The soundtrack is a mixture of animal calls, the wolves the most clearly present of all, and Western-style instruments like panpipes, flutes, and acoustic guitar. The Wolf acts as the game’s wild symbol, and it can land anywhere on the reels and will replace all other symbols except for the moon and rock formation. Landing 3,4 or 5 will give you 1, 10 and 20x your stake respectively.
Gameplay in Wolf Gold
In terms of gameplay, Wolf Gold uses a standard 5×3 reel view, with 25 paylines in total. If a player gets 3,4 or 5 symbols that match during a spin, they win. 25 paylines allows you to play from 25 cent to €125 per spin in-game. This can be selected by the player to suit their preferences. In terms of variance, the game is rated as a 6/10 by Pragmatic Play. In terms of RTP, it is 96.01%, which is fairly normal for an online slot. Jackpot wins can lead to a prize as big as 2500x your original stake, while in-game prizes can win you as much as 500x your stake.
Wolf Gold’s Features
Wolf Gold has some additional features, including Free Spins and Money Respins. With Free Spins, using the sunset canyon symbol (the game’s scatter), should it land on reels 1, 3 and 5, you will unlock the Free Spins feature, which gives players 6 free spins. On top of this, symbols during this round are larger than normal and fill entire reels, increasing your chances of winning. If you land 3 more scatters, you win another 3 free spins. Money Respins involve the full moon symbol – if you land 6 of them you’ll unlock the Money Respins feature. This sees the removal of all standard symbols, with them being replaced by moons. The round continues until you either run out of respins, or if you manage to fill the reels with moons. At the end of the round, the symbols’ stake multipliers are added together.
Wolf Gold is unusual for an online slot in that it reminds me more of a brick and mortar slot machine. The howling wolves of the game are a nice touch to add to the Native American theme, and the music swells gorgeously when you land a win. The gameplay is very straightforward. With the Free Spins round, you never know what you’ll get – either a big payout or very middling returns. Overall, Wolf Gold is a solid game, although nothing out of the ordinary to make you choose it over another slot game.
