Howling Wolves Slot Review
Howling Wolves is a Native American-themed slot, focusing on three wolves, including the black and grey Alpha Wolf being the top paying symbol in the pack. Warm-up your vocal cords as you will need to howl all the way to the bank to claim your winnings. Unless you are a werewolf, then please stay chained up in the basement. 2020 has been rough enough.
Howling Wolves is a 5x3 reel, 25 payline video slot powered by Booming Games software. Symbols include Feathered Headbands, Tomahawks, Tribal Drums, Pottery, and 3 different Wolves. Special Symbols include the Full Moon Wild and the Dream-catcher Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature. Wild. There are also 3 Random Features that can trigger at any time. More detail will be given in the Features section.
As far as controls go, at the bottom of the reels from left to right, you will find the increase and decrease Bet buttons, Win window, and the Balance Window. On the right of the reels is the Menu icon (3 horizontal lines), expanding to the History of Play, Full-Screen, Settings, and Autoplay button. Below is the Information icon that expands to the Game Rules and Paytable, then the Bet Settings icon and the Spin button.
Features in Howling Wolves include the Full Moon Wild and the Dream-catcher Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature. Wild. There are also 3 Random Features that can trigger at any time.
The Full Moon Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Dream-catcher Scatter, to form potential winning combinations.
At any point during the gameplay (including the Free Spins Feature), the following 3 Random Features can trigger:
Howling Wilds: adds up to 15 Full Moon Wilds anywhere on the reels.
Wolf Pack Multipliers: multipliers of 2x-5x are added to wins.
Alpha Wolf Spin: transforms all Wolf Symbols on the reels into the Alpha Wolf Symbol.
Land 3 Dream-catcher Scatters on reels 3, 4, and 5 to trigger the Free Spins Feature, awarding 10 free spins. The Random Features are also in play, and the feature can be retriggered.
Unfortunately, there are no unique features to this slot.
Howling Wolves has captured the Native American theme beautifully but fails to provide innovative features. That aside, there is still ample opportunity to land some decent wins in this stunning looking slot. The design, animation, and graphics are superb. The volatility is high, and the RTP sits at a disappointing 95.49%.
The max coin win is 5000x your stake.
If this Howling Wolves review were written purely based on first impressions, then it would have scored very high due to its stunning visuals. However, when we dig into the nitty-gritty details, the Max Win for a high volatile slot and the RTP attached to it, ruins everything for me. Now I know why the wolves are howling; it's because they wish they could have been more impressive. I feel like howling too, but unfortunately, it is not a full moon.
