Howling Wolves is the latest slot to be released from the game developers at Booming Games. The slot will take you to the heart of the forest where you can join in the action. Howling Wolves is beautifully designed and will provide you with some excellent rewards. If you are ready to embark on this Native American adventure read on.
When it comes down to the playing the slot plays on a 5x3 reel set with 25 active pay lines. The rewards that are on offer reach an immense level with up to 5,000x your stake, the slot however does have a high volatility rating and a return to player which sits at 95.49% a little lower than many competitors slots, and there are a few elements that some players may not be fans of. When it comes to the features there is free spins, Wolf Pack Multipliers, Alpha Wolf Spins and Howling Wilds so plenty of options to suit all players.
Theme, Design & Symbols
Howling Wolves, the slot has a divided theme that encompasses a Native American theme as well as a wolf, strange combination but it does work. Having played other slots from this developer I also enjoy the graphics and there is a unique mix of Native American symbols and style, however, it is the wolf that takes centre stage in this slot.
The lower paying symbols that you can expect to come across are a symbols wearing a feather headbands, tribal drums, pottery and tomahawks, and the higher paying symbols are the three wolves, a Dreamcatcher which is the scatter and the Full Moon which is the wild.
Bet Statistics & Prizes
When it comes to placing your bet there are 25 pay lines so you need to bet with 25 coins and the bets can be selected from between 25p per spin up to a maximum of £125 per spin which is a really diverse range that will appeal to all manner of players from beginners to high rollers.
When it comes to the win potential you stand a chance of winning up to 20x your stake per line and up to 500x your stake if you land the right combination of symbols on your screen although you should not worry if it all seems a little unimpressive to begin with. However, land the Wolf Pack Multipliers and your wins can be boosted by 5x raising the potential a lot higher. The developers do confirm that the pay outs can reach 5,000x your stake which is impressive by all standards.
It is important to remember that this slot does is highly volatile which when you put this with the return to player which stands at 95.49% this could be a hard choice for some type of players.
Whilst you are playing this game you can activate the Howling Wilds feature at random. This can add up to an additional 15 wild symbols in various and random locations. These wild symbols can be used to substitute for the regular symbols on display giving you more chance to land winning combinations. There are also the Full Moon wilds can also pay you themselves with up to 20x the stake offered for each line you land, and they assist you with.
Another random feature offered in this slot is the Wolf Pack Multipliers and this will reward you with 2 to 5 howling wolves in your game area and this will boost your winnings from the round accordingly from 2x up to 5x.
The Alpha Wolf Spin is the third random feature that you can activate in this slot and it transforms all of the major symbols that are in view on your game screen for the highest value showing for that round. When it comes to the feature that is naturally activated there is the Dreamcatcher scatter and when a symbol you require lands at the same time on the last three reels and you will be rewarded by 10 free spins. Should you land another set of scatters you can reactivate the feature, however, there does not appear to have any kind of special features associated with it.
Howling Wolves, the slot is certainly an interesting release but there are a couple of things that could do with tweaking, but it is what it is and I really do not feel it will put that many players off the game. The graphics are well executed and creative and the overall way the slot is presented appeals. The various random free spin features are really well thought out and interesting to play, and it makes a change not to have the features triggered by symbols, instead you get the random events which you will be pleased to know do come alive in many ways and add a certain uniqueness to the game.
Personally, the return to player was a little disappointing but I feel the other potential the slot offers makes up for this. When I tried the game out I was pleasantly surprised how often I activated some of the random features and I would say the slot is fair and you can walk away with a little more than you started with.
My rating for this game would be 7.5/10 and I would recommend the slot to fans of this developers and those looking for some decent features, I do not think it would necessarily be everyone’s first choice but surely it is worth a couple of spins just to make sure you are not missing what could become one of your favoured slots.
