The Wolf’s Bane Slot Review
For years the villagers have been attacked by flesh-eating Werewolves, but, finally, they decided to strike back and they will need all the help they can get, so if you believe you have what it takes to save the village from these devilish creatures, try out The Wolf’s Bane, a five-reel, 10-payline video slot, which comes from NetEnt’s creative kitchen. Playable from £0.10 per spin, the 2019 release offers a couple of rewarding additional features. Land Moon Scatters to trigger free spins with four different types of Wilds on the offer. Look for the Archer, because he triggers the Pick and Click feature, where you win instant prizes.
This is where we need to say that those of you with weak stomachs should walk away because it gets messy. We will visit the village on the night of the Full Moon, so it will be dark and Werewolves will be howling the entire time. Several Villagers will appear, including the Male with the Gun, a Female with a Candle, a Male with a Shovel and a Female with Holy Water. Also, there is the Archer, the main werewolf slayer in town. He is the Scatter that triggers the Pick and Click Bonus. The Full Moon is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature. There are four types of Werewolf Wilds on the offer, but more about that later.
Due to the fact that you need to keep your eyes open for the flesh-eating, blood-sucking creatures that are about to attack, the rules of the game are as easy as possible, simply to make sure that players do not lose their focus. The 2019 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 10 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Betting is fixed at 10 coins per spin, but the coin value can be altered, so players can wager as low as £0.10 and as high as £100 per single spin.
Land three Archer Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 and you will trigger the Pick and Click Bonus. You pick one of the three Scatters that landed and you can win from 5x to 50x the bet instantly. To trigger the Free Spins feature, players need to land three or more Full Moon Scatters. Land 3, 4, or 5 Scatters to trigger 10, 20, or 30 freebies at once. The feature can be retriggered, so up to 60 free spins can be expected. One of four Wilds will be given to you at random. There is the regular Wild, Expanding Wild, which expands to cover the entire reel, 2x multiplier Wild, which doubles your wins when part of the winning combination, and the Spreading Wild, which, once it lands on the reels, turns one adjacent or diagonal symbol into a Wild. Finally, there is the Overlay Wild, which appears on reels 1-3 and acts as a regular Wild.
If you decide to battle against Werewolves, you will be competing for a prize of 1,000 times the bet per spin. The biggest payout you can get in the regular game is 500 times the bet per spin, while, if you get 2x multiplier Wilds in free spins, you can double your wins. The Pick and Click Bonus offers up to 50 times the bet. The Wolf’s Bane’s RTP is 96.74%.
The Wolf’s Bane on Mobile
There will be spinners who would want to play the NetEnt title from the safeties of their homes, and there will also be punters who would like to be outdoors when they start spinning the reels, simply to be able to start running the moment Werewolves appear. Fortunately for all of them, the 2019 release is playable across all devices.
– Exciting and rewarding features
– Excellent visuals
– Playable across all devices
– A scary theme
– Not easy to trigger all 60 freebies at once
Such a scary video slot will not definitely have a pretty wide audience, fans of horror movies will be more than satisfied to enjoy The Wolf’s Bane. However, there will also be plenty of gamers who would be too scared to try the 2019 release, because the visuals and the soundtrack are so darn good. The special features are not easy to trigger but can be very generous once you get the chance to benefit from them. All in all, we firmly believe that every player out there should try out the NetEnt title.
