Slot Machines on-line or at the casino, wolf-themed games have proven to be popular and entertaining for a long time. Many of the themes have the wolf as the “good guy” and not just the “Big, Bad, Wolf” of 3 Little Pigs fame, which is the theme for a couple of online slot games. All the games have different types of graphics, bold color schemes, and plenty of action to keep even the most jaded gambler entertained. The wolf-themed slot games have maintained their popularity throughout time with The Wolf Run game by IGT being on the legends of the slot community along with Cleopatra and Buffalo slots for nigh on 10 years. Why the wolf? The wolf is the wild in many ways. It’s a creature of the wilderness, a native to the remotest corners of North America, Europe and Asia. It is not a coincidence that a person who wants to be alone and do things their way is called a lone wolf. Although the wolf has a rather nasty temperament, it is necessary to have around to maintain balance in nature and the local ecosystems. So, having a few wolves around may be a good thing.
Listed below are reviews of five popular wolf-themed slot machine games:
Wolf Run Slot Machine by IGT
This popular slot machine has been a feature on casino slot floors for more than 10 years along with other legends as Cleopatra and Buffalo slots. Featuring a Native American theme, the graphics show Indians, wolves, Indian dream catchers and a full moon. It has 5 reels with 40 pay lines and an RTP of 94.98%. The top win is x1000 your wager by lining up 5 wolves on the pay line. With big payoffs and frequent winners, Wolf Run remains one of the top slot games in the world and for good reason.
Wolf Quest Slot Machine by Game Art
Wolf Quest brings the primal wolf howling to the forefront. With 50 pay lines on 5 reels there is more than enough action for even the most ambitious player. In selecting a more classic approach to the games, keeping it simple with Native American imagery along with wolves, owls, and eagles, Wolf Quest keeps its gimmickry to a minimum to allow the truly serious player to play the game in its simplicity. There are no multipliers so the winnings are more often, in smaller quantities as opposed to just a few winners of large jackpots.
Russia Wolf by High 5 Games
The beauty of the Russian Ballet combined with a traditional Russian folk tale is brought to life by stunning graphics and animation in this delightful game. Stravinsky’s classical of The Firebird ballet makes playing pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable. The graphics are wonderful beginning with the gray wolf with its grey and white fur and glowing amber eyes watching the Russian folktale come to life. High 5 has designed its games to use on multiple platforms, especially the Smart Phone to make them portable for remote enjoyment. The Russian Wolf has a large gem embedded in its forehead, formal wear for a Russian Wolf? Not sure as to the purpose of the gem, but it adds to the folklore that is throughout this game.
Silver Fang by Microgaming
Silver Fang has a very realistic wolf howl on it, maybe one of the best available. This is an artistically designed slot, with an animated wolf in front of a snowy background. Beginning with mysterious music, it begins slowly and then gradually increases the pace. It has a 50-pay line slot and three wolf paw prints to trigger the bonus round. However, when Silver Fang appears as a scatter symbol, the bonus is increased. Silver Fang has wonderful optics and audio that provide a background to the spinning reels and multipliers, free spins, and plenty of scatter.
Wild Wolf by IGT
Wild Wolf has the feel of a regular casino and was a very popular gaming feature in the casinos. Since it has been brought to online slots, it has not lost any of that “at the casino” feel. Wild Wolf is designed in the classic style combined with a solid theme for the classical lovers out there. There are 50 pay lines with 5 reels to make the betting interesting for both the low rate player as well as the high roller. It contains multipliers and free spins, enough to give the high rollers the game they are looking to play and the more restrained players as well.
