Wolf Rising by IGT
IGT’s wolf themed slots are easily among their most played games, not to mention the most played slots regardless of the developer behind them. Games like Wolf Run and Wild Wolf continue to rank among the most popular titles both online and on land and share plenty of similarities. The good news for fans is that they’re not the only canine themed games that the developer has up their sleeves and while Wolf Rising does not yet enjoy the same levels of popularity, if you want something that’s bigger and arguably even better, these are the reels to be spinning!
It won’t take long to see one of the main differences between Wolf Rising and its sister titles – indeed, one glance at the board will demonstrate that not everything is quite as it seems. The reels have effectively doubled in size, meaning that while five reels remain, they each contain eight different symbols. Not only does this make for plenty of action, it also opens up the excellent availability of a hundred win lines on each and every spin. The symbols on these reels will be familiar to any Wolf Run fan but the most significant of all during regular play is the totem pole. Not only is it wild but it has been built eight stacks high, making fully wild reels a genuine possibility, even when they’re as tall as this!
The bonus symbol does of course lead to the bonus and, just like the other wolf games in the range, Wolf Rising is the proud host of an excellent free spins round. Three of those bonus symbols are sufficient to trigger the feature and while the initial allocation of five free spins may feel a little on the low side, they can be particularly valuable. This is all down to the fact that even more wild totem poles are added to the board and barely a spin goes by without at least one wild reel, if not more. If you’re not keen on the idea of just five free spins then it’s also possible to add to the total by landing more bonus symbols on a free spin.
Wolf Rising is similar enough to IGT’s popular wolf games to piggy back on their popularity, but different enough to really stand out in its own right. If huge numbers of symbols and plenty of wild wins sound good to you then this is a great way of experiencing both at the same time, even if it’s at the expense of a few free spins!
