Head to a moonlit village
Like most Net Entertainment releases, the design in The Wolf’s Bane is excellent. You’ll see a moonlit village shrouded in mist behind the reels. There you’ll find A to J symbols alongside a nurse, a gravedigger, a woman and a soldier. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the latter in combination and you’ll receive a payout of 2.5, 8 or 50 times your total stake.
Those same amounts are on offer from the standard werewolf wild which substitutes for all the standard symbols. The Wolf’s Bane comes with a pair of features.
Pick and Click feature
The Wolf’s Bane comes with a Pick and Click feature - this round is triggered by landing 3 of the werewolf hunter with the crossbow. Choose 1 of these symbols to reveal a cash prize of between 5 and 50 times your stake.
Free Spins feature
Then you have the Free Spins feature. The full moon symbol is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels on the same spin and your reward will be 10, 20 or 30 free spins. Before the feature begins, 1 one wild extra is picked. This will be in play throughout the free spins – there are 4 different types:
- Standard Wild - this replaces all the standard symbols.
- Expanding Wild - this fills the whole reel when it hits if the expansion creates a winner.
- 2x Multiplier Wild - this doubles the payout when it forms part of a winning combination.
- Spreading Wild - this turns 1 adjacent symbol wild.
These wilds can land on all 5 reels. On each free spin, you’ll see at least 1 overlay wild added on reels 1, 2 or 3. The payouts for all wilds are the same as the standard base game wild. Landing 3 or more scatters results in a re-trigger and another round of 10, 20 or 30 free spins.
The Wolf’s Bane thoughts
This horror-themed slot game is very well put together. The visuals are excellent, backed by a haunting soundtrack which fits the creepy theme superbly. The range of extras isn’t massive but the wild extras can really come into their own during the Free Spins feature. Medium variance, you can win up to 1,000 times your stake on each free spin (with the 2x Multiplier Wild).
If you like the horror theme, then you’ll likely find The Wolf’s Bane a very welcome new addition. In case you’re wondering, The Wolf’s Bane uses the same engine as Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist.
