Introducing - Curse of the Werewolf Megaways slot

Pragmatic Play have used the ancient belief that man can transform into wolf in the latest slot Curse of the Werewolf Megaways. This is the fourth time around the block for this popular game mechanic. One of the hooks with this game is the impressive potential and the free spin bonus feature complete with transforming symbols. Not to forget the main event and this is where you can benefit from mystery symbols and two-reel modifiers.

Theme & Design

European Folklore speaks of werewolves who reached the depths of humanity in the Middle Ages. One of the earliest mentions of werewolves can be found in the books of Gervase of Tilbury, who was an English cleric in the 12th and 13th centuries. This slot has not been set that far back in time; however, you will see that the 6-reel grid is set smack in the middle of a cobbled street in a picturesque European village. The scene is completed perfectly with the Gothic harpsichord soundtrack.


Once you open the pay table you will see that there are ten regular symbols that are separated into high and low paying symbols. For the lower symbols you can expect to come across the usual playing card symbols 10 through to Ace and these have gold colouring and are set against a royal blue background, to land a win you need to land three or more of the same symbol. The high paying symbols are represented by four village folk and a wolf, the human characters pay out when you land three whilst the wolf only requires two to reward you with a win. If you land six of the higher paying symbols in a row you will be rewarded with a prize from 1.5x to 10x your stake.
The final symbol that you can expect to see is the wild that is represented by some slashed parchment and this will appear on your 2nd and your 6th reels only. The wild can substitute for all the other symbols to help create winning combinations.

Betting & Winnings

You will notice that Pragmatic Play have decided not to push the Megaways engine to its limits in this slot and the game offers 6-reels which can hold up to 6-symbols and the number of symbols can change at random on every spin. Due to this you will find that there are varying degrees of ways to win, starting from a minimum of 64 up to a maximum of 46,656 when the reels are at full capacity. You will be rewarded with wins for every set of matching symbols running from left to right from your first reel.
You can play this slot on all devices which is particularly useful if you are wanting to play on the go and bets start from a minimum of just 10p per spin up to a maximum of £100 per spin, which makes the slot attractive to all kinds of players. The developers have included a helpful lightning volatility meter which you can see lighting up in the bottom right hand corner of the home screen which helps you to make sure that you don’t get lost. The developers have rated the slot a full 5/5 when it comes to the volatility therefore this is not a slot for the fainthearted. There is a default return to player that stands at 96.5% which is above average. It is worth remembering though that this figure can change depending on which casino you choose to play at therefore it is vital that you check this before you start to play.


Where you usually find the cascade/reaction feature in Megaways games the developers have done away with this which could be a bone for contention, but in its place there are mystery symbols, spin modifiers and a round of free spins that are completely soaked in blood!
The mystery symbol is depicted by the sepia-wolf-howling-at-the-moon and when you land this symbol in the base game they morph into the same paying symbol to give you more chances to land the big wins.

This slot also offers two spin modifiers which are the super spins and guaranteed win spins. The super spin drops a stack of high paying symbols onto your reels, whilst the guaranteed win spins do exactly that, guarantee wins, which will ensure you with multiple wins ways.

The bonus scatter is the other wolf-howling-at-the-moon symbol and this can appear any size on any of your reels. If you land 3, 4, 5, or 6 bonus symbols you will be rewarded with 8, 10, 12, or 15 free spins, respectively. In this slot the free spins use a progressive feature, and this involves a special gold wolf which can substitute for the regular red wolf symbol.
Whenever you land a gold wolf symbols it will remove 1 to 5 lives from one of the high value characters. If you remove all 5 lives from a character this will be replaced on your reels by a red (premium) wolf symbol and you will be granted an extra free spin. You can extend the bonus game if you land 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 bonus symbols and they will then grant you with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 extra free spins. Therefore, the key to this slot is to get all the character symbols replaced by the top payers to win the big rewards.
There is a huge potential with this game, but you will need the bonus game to unlock it this can be done in two ways, the first sees you waiting patiently or, provided there are no regulations to the contrary where you live you can make the most of the bonus buy option. To activate this feature will costs you 100x your stake and you are guaranteed to land at least three bonus symbols on the following spin.

Final Thoughts

All the games produced under the Pragmatic Play Megaways umbrella have all been expertly executed and this slot follows suit. There is an abundance of slot that are wolf themed but there are not many in the fairy tale style that this offers. When it comes to the features there are not that different the mystery symbols are a plenty and there is a strong feel to the first part of the bonus game. When the symbols upgrade, they hit straight at the top rather than just going up to the next level symbol which makes for a more opportunistic gaming experience.
The free spins require a good deal of momentum to get going but it is rather easy to upgrade a couple of symbols, but you really need them to make an early transformation to make a huge difference. But if you do get lucky and land them right, they will gather momentum and take everything out along their way. Although the potential stated is 40,976x the stake some find this hard to believe however, take it from me this slot is a mega payer.

There has been criticism as the features are not original but what is clever is how the developers have given transformative properties to the werewolves that also passed onto the transformation of symbols in the bonus game. I really enjoyed Curse of the Werewolf Megaways and it cements just how good the developers at Pragmatic Play are and this is shown in the smooth animations, clear graphics and development talent is obvious from the clear graphics, smooth animations, and stunning characters. Overall, I would sum this up as an unusual choice of theme that provides huge potential and makes for a great entertainment choice.
