Microgaming Cool Wolf Online Slot Reviewed


Everyone knows that a lecherous man is described as a wolf. But if you want to know what a cool wolf is, then check out the Cool Wolf slot game from Microgaming. He is a kind of split personality. During the day he is a geek, but at evening he transforms into a ladies’ man. The slot game has the popular 243 ways to win reels structure and is live at Microgaming online casinos like Spin Palace and Royal Vegas.

The reels are set in a hot spot city appropriately named Howlingwood. The high paying symbols are the cool wolf, girls who are crazy about him, a classy car, a movie theatre and sunglasses. The low paying symbols are brightly coloured playing card icons. Cool Wolf includes the popular Microgaming Rolling Reels feature. Symbols in winning combinations are slashed away by the wolf’s paws and are replaced by new ones. This process continues in the same spin till no new winning combinations are formed.

The game logo is the wild symbol. There are more than 40 of them on the reels and they appear stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4. So you can expect to see this symbol quite often. The movie ticket is the scatter symbol. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when three or more land anywhere on the reels. The Howling Wild feature is randomly triggered. One of reels 2, 3 or 4 will turn completely wild and award a payout. The accompanying animation of the nerd transforming into a wolf is awesome.

Three or more scatter symbols trigger the free spins feature. Three scatter symbols award 15 free spins, four scatter symbols award 20 free spins and five scatter symbols award 25 free spins. The Rolling Reels feature becomes more powerful in the free spins. Each consecutive win in the same spin is paid with increasing multipliers in the sequence 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x. When the Rolling Reels sequence ends, the multiplier is reset to at 1x for the next free spin. The free spins feature cannot be retriggered.

The total bet in Cool Wolf is 50 times the line bet. This is a bit high when compared to similar slot machines but commensurate with the abundant payout opportunities. The top tine payout is 500 times the line bet and the top scatter payout is 100 times the total bet.
