Wolf Run slot REVIEW

Wolf Run ReviewJoin the pack and run with the wolves in this somewhat legendary slot from IGT. Why is Wolf Run legendary, you might ask? This slot game made its debut many years ago as a physical slot machine in land-based casinos and was a massive hit, especially thanks to some of its innovative features that were cutting edge for its time. In 2014, IGT decided to release an online version which quickly garnered a strong following and is a firm favourite of many slot aficionados.

The theme of this slot is exactly as the name implies; it’s all about the wolves. The action unfolds on a 4x5 reel set, with mountains and forests in the background. There are 40 paylines and the RTP is 94.98% with a low to medium variance. Despite the outdated graphics and cliché land-based slot sound effects compared to more recent slots, it kind of adds to the enjoyment of the game and gives that feeling of sitting in the middle of the action at a Las Vegas casino. Wolf Run offers you the ability to select the number of active paylines you want to play and the bet per line. The betting options range from 1.00 per line up to 300.00 per line.

If you’re up for a howling good time, then let’s explore more of what Wolf Run has to offer.

Wolf Run Features

Stacked Wilds

First on the list of features in this slot are the stacked wilds. The wild symbol is the wolf howling at the moon in the background. During play, you will see an entire reel or more, filled with these symbols, which can substitute for any other symbol except the bonus. These stacked symbols bring plenty of winning combinations.

Free Spins

The second major feature is the Free Spins, which is triggered when 3 bonus symbols land in any position on the middle three reels. First, it awards an initial prize of 2x your bet amount and then the 5 Free Spins begin. While 5 Free Spins is somewhat minimal compared to most modern slots, you can expect to see the Stacked Wilds more often during the feature. Plus, the Free Spins can be retriggered if the 3 bonus symbols land on reels 2,3 and 4 again during you’re the feature. The Free Spins can be retriggered up to a maximum of 255 spins in a single Free Spins session, which is rather generous.

Wolf Run 200 Spins Experience

Like buying a new car, the only way to really experience a slot is to take it for a test drive. Our 200 spins test is always a great indicator for us as to how the game performs, however, your experience will be entirely different. Our 200 spins session began somewhat slow with a few small wins here and there, but certainly nothing worth jumping up and down with excitement about. The low-medium variance was rather evident. Eventually, after a fair number of spins, the 3 Bonus symbols landed on the middle reels and triggered the 5 Free Spins. Once again, our Free Spins session was also somewhat disappointing with no major wins or retriggers.

Review Summary

Wolf Run certainly has that old-school land-based slot machine vibe. As mentioned above, the graphics, animations and sound effects are far from that of the latest slots, but this is no reason not to try the game. There are limited features and the 5 Free Spins is somewhat frugal on IGT’s behalf. One of the biggest appeals of this slot, in our opinion, is the simplicity. There are no complex features to try to figure out or thousands of confusing bet ways. The one thing worth noting is the betting values. While a minimum bet of 1.00 per line might not seem that expensive, if you plan on playing all 40 lines per spin, it’s going to cost you a hefty 40.00 per spin. IGT probably should have offered some smaller options that would let the average player bet “more bang for their buck”. Overall, Wolf Run is an enjoyable slot to play that certainly has some payout potential.

If you enjoy Wolf Run by IGT, you should also try:

Hot Roulette - Wolf Run is another slot by IGT in the Wolf Run series. The base game of this slot is similar to the regular Wolf Run, however, when 3 bonus symbols land, you have the choice between Free Spins or a Roulette type of game.

Wolf Gold Slot by Pragmatic Play is another wolf theme inspired slot. This game is packed with bonus features including the Wolf Gold Money Re-spins, Wolf Gold free spins and Wolf Gold mega jackpot. With a medium variance and a 96.01% RTP, it’s certainly worth taking for a spin.
