NetEnt invites slots fans to howl with glee with it’s Wolf Cub Slot, a cute, snowy, 20 payline adventure that follows on in the Swedish Studio’s penchant for cute animal slots, such as its Copy Cats and Scruffy Duck slots. Like those releases, Wolf Cub has plenty going for it, as we would expect from a online slots developing behemoth like NetEnt. Take a 400,000 coin jackpot, for instance, and a potential 115 free spins in the game’s Free Spins feature. Despite its snowy setting, this is definitely not a slot that will leave us out in the cold.
It’s rare to see online slots that don’t feature the lead character by the side of the reels. Our Wolf Cub hero does just that here. He sits patiently, wagging his tail and showing us how cold it is with his freezing breath. Not that he seems to mind. His friends in this forest adventure make up our top-paying symbols – Bear, Moose, Wildcat and Owl. Neatly designed card suits to fit with the forest theme bring up the rear as the lower-paying symbols.
To help us along the road to snowy dreams, we have a playful musical ditty and Wolf Paw Wilds. The former might only last so long, but the latter we will welcome all the way through. As usual, the Wild substitutes for all symbols except Scatters, completing wins from nowhere.
With a 400,000 coin top payout, coin levels up to 1.00 and NetEnt’s trademark 1-10 Bet Level multipliers, there is plenty of scope for us to take a hefty jackpot home from the snow. In aiming for the jackpot, Wolf Cub’s Free Spins feature launches when we land three or more Scatters. “How many free spins?” we here you ask. Good question. Wolf Cub adds a layer of mystery to its Free Spins feature by spinning all symbols on the triggering reels. When they stop, each symbol reveals a number, the sum of which gives us our free spins total. With a potential 115 on offer, we’ll keep our fingers crossed that the big numbers come rolling round.
During the Free Spins bonus round, the Blizzard Feature will activate when we land a Stacked Symbol on reel 1. All other matching symbols – including Wilds – spread towards the Stacked Reel, leaving scores of matching symbols in their wake and completing winning combos in the process.
Cold as it may look, the cute graphics and Wolf Cub hero will warm the heart of any hardened slots fan. The whopping 400,000 coin jackpot and potential 115 free spins on offer won’t do any harm to them, either. Overall, Wolf Cub is a useful addition to NetEnt’s slots catalogue and is sure to be fired up by any player looking for fun game-play and decent win potential. Awoooooo!
