Wolf Run is a 5-reel, 40-payline slot game developed by IGT. This game is centered around wolves. Going by today's standards, the graphics appear to be a little bit dated, but the gameplay is what will get you ticking, especially since winning combinations and bonus rounds keep hitting regularly. Like all great slots, Wolf Run has a host of features with wilds, scatters, and free spins that you can easily re-trigger. You can play this slot on both Windows and Mac operated computers and laptops without downloading any online casino software. Get ready to enter a world that is full of mysterious happenings and winnings.
If you are a fan of IGT games you will probably know the Wolf theme is not unique with Wolf Rising and Wild Wolf among the company's more popular slot games. If you have a fear of wolves, it is time to face your fear and enter a forest loaded with riches. The secret to unlocking these is by finding the wolves. For bigger payouts you will want to run into as many of them as possible.
The reels in Wolf Run appear on top of a thick forest and you will hear occasional howls throughout the game.
On the reels you will encounter the Black Wolf, the White Wolf, a Howling Wolf at Full Moon, and the usual playing card values that include Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, and 9. The sounds also stay true to the theme and every time you hit the Spin button or come across a winning combination, a thrilling sound is produced. The games title is also creatively done and you will love how the letter 'o' has been replaced with a paw. The game is set to run in what appears to be a dark night. Obviously, this is the only time you will hear the wolves howling. Purple, green, and blue colors dominate the reels.
The Howling Wolf is wild and he substitutes all other symbols on the reels apart from the Bonus symbol, which is your key to the Free Spins bonus round.
A feature I love that is available in almost all IGT slots is the Auto Play function. Press this button and choose between 10 and 50 automatic spins. The automatic spins run at the same speeds as the normal speeds and you also have the same chance of hitting the bonus and winning combinations as you do when spinning manually. Obviously, the automatic spins come in handy when you have to attend to some urgent matter away from the computer without having to pause play. All wins realized during the auto-spins are automatically added to your balance. You can also stop the automatic spins at any point by just clicking Stop. The spins will also come to an end if you run out of betting credits or when you trigger a bonus round.
You can also adjust the graphics setting by clicking the Tools button that is just next to the Auto Spin. Choose the right option for your computer to ensure you have smooth play and optimal animation performance.
Three Bonus symbols on the middle reels 2, 3, and 4 will get you 5 free spins. All wins during this bonus round come with a 2X multiplier. You can also re-trigger more Free Spins by getting 3 more Bonus symbols on the center reels. The additional spins will be automatically added to your remaining free spins. Additional free spins also come with a 2X multiplier. The Free Spins mode also come with a boosted Stacked Wilds feature that can occur on any of the 5 reels. Getting multiple Stacked Wilds on any of the reels will boost your winnings in a big way.
You need to play all 40 paylines for maximum action. Adjust the line bet to an amount that fits your budget. The line bets run from 1 to 50, and the maximum bet you can place when playing all 40 lines is worth 2,000 coins. The Howling Wolf is the highest paying symbol as 5 in a line pays out 1,000 coins. All line wins pay from left to right and are multiplied by your line bet. While the game is sutied to penny slot players it's best to bet maximum coins in order to give you the best shot of hitting the jackpot.
In spite of being slightly dated, Wolf Run remains one of IGT's most popular games. It is a highly-interactive slot with easy to hit bonuses and winning combinations. The game uses a pretty basic interface that you will understand and master at first glance. If you are looking for regular wins and quick gameplay then this is the right slot for you, especially if you are a fan of Wolf Rising or Wild Wolf, both also by IGT, as the three video slots are all very similar.
