Wolf Hiding Bonus Slot Review

Wolves stand around 23 inches to 35 inches at the shoulders and weigh 30 to 175 pounds. Jackals stand 15 to 20 inches in height and weigh around 15 to 35 pounds.

While wolves are carnivorous (they can feed on huge quarry, such as yak), jackals are omnivores that feed on small animals as well as plants.

So why am I going to the trouble of arming you with information about how these two species of Canidae differ? Well, I’m giving you context for when I start my tirade about Wolf Hiding Bonus Buy slot from Evoplay.

Now that you know what’s coming, I’m sure you just can’t wait to get into it so here goes.

Gameplay

Wolf Hiding Bonus Buy slot is a follow-on from the studio’s earlier offering, Wolf Hiding slot. The games look identical and that’s not a compliment, as the original design was pretty lame.

What bugs me about both games is that they feature Anubis. Now, the last time I checked, the Egyptian deity was a jackal, not a wolf. Might as well have thrown some bison in there and called them buffalo, as other studios love to do.

You’d think that Evoplay would’ve fixed the celestial oversight after the first iteration, but I guess either it wasn’t spotted, or the issue wasn’t deemed worrying enough to warrant an edit.

And that’s not where the similarities end coz even the stats are the same. There’s the max win (€300,000), the RTP (96.11%), the 20 fixed paylines, and the very high volatility rate.

Wilds appear on any of the reels and will replace all symbols except the Free Spins ones. The other symbols you’ll see on the grid are the Mystery ones, which are the swirly things that look like clouds.

Mystery symbols (I’m getting déjà vu – maybe it’s easier to read my previous review) are stacked 4 symbols high. You’ll read about them again under Features.

You can play Wolf Hiding Bonus slot using any currency, as long as it’s not Dogecoin.

Features

FREE SPINS:

Landing 3 or more Free Spin symbols will set this feature off. Reels 2 and 4 will initially be filled with Mystery symbols and you’ll see multipliers appearing during this round.

Free Spins are unlimited and continue for as long as Mystery symbols are on the reels.

HIDDEN FEATURE:

This is a new one for Wolf Hiding Bonus Buy slot.

Mystery symbols trigger this feature, and when they do, they’ll open up to reveal regular symbols, Wilds, or Full Moon symbols.

Remember the multipliers I mentioned above? These will be increased (from an initial 1x) each time a Hidden feature is triggered.

FULL MOON FEATURE:

When a Mystery symbol reveals a Full Moon symbol, that’s then this round will be initiated. Then, the Mystery symbols will spin and reveal either Coin symbols with a bet multiplier (1x to 2,500x), or Free Spin symbols.

BONUS BUY:

The second difference from the OG version of this game allows you to buy your way into the Free Spins round for 32x. Which is actually a pretty sweet deal considering Free Spins are “unlimited”.

Performance

One thing I can’t give Evoplay any sh*t for is the performance of Wolf Hiding Bonus Buy slot. It did its thing effortlessly across all my devices and browsers during testing.

Maximum Win

The hero of this story is the 30,000x multiplier that can turn your max bet of €10 into €300,000. But you can always play at anything from 10 euro cents upwards.

Conclusion

I had a shaky start when reviewing the OG version of this game, but I ended up enjoying it (much to my chagrin). The question before us is whether the Buy Bonus and Hidden feature make this a better version.

The Hidden feature is okay and bumping up multipliers is always nice. I do like me a Buy Bonus, especially one that doesn’t tear the arse out of my wallet, so this one’s also a welcome addition.

They’re not earth-shattering changes and I didn’t really have an issue triggering Free Spins previously. My biggest bugbear is the aesthetics – they sucked before and they still suck. I’d have rather seen an improvement there, but that’s probably just me.
