Cool Wolf is a 5 reel game from Microgaming, whose theme appears to be based on the idea of a werewolf that is a movie star. He’s a nerd by day, and a hero by night. The design also shows you some kind of movie premiere, to which he goes along with two cute cheerleaders. The game relies on features as much as it does on its design, to make itself liked. I think you will enjoy it because of that, and also because it has 243 ways to win, while being capable of paying $5,000.
Betting & Jackpots
To place your bet, you need to either increase or decrease the total value of the bet, from $0.50 to as much as $50, or you can click on the title of the section, to open a menu where you can get into the details. You can modify the coin value, which will only go from $0.01 to $0.10, and you can change how many coins can be used on a single line, the range being 1 to 10 for it. The maximum bet is worth $1, while the total bet can be at $50 or lower.
The top reward will promise you a 5,000x return on the line bet, which could mean up to 50,000 coins, but only $5,000 cash.
The game promises that you will have more than 40 wild symbols on the reels, which should hopefully mean that you will get decent odds of landing some. These wilds are stacked on three of the five reels, the last ones. Wilds will substitute for any other symbol, with the exception of a scatter.
At times, you might see a feature called a Howling Wild, trigger at random. It will turn one of the three middle reels into wild reels, and there will be a guaranteed win for you in there.
The slot has Rolling Reels inside, a feature which drops symbols from winning combinations and gets you new symbols on the reels, so that more combinations can be formed during the same paid spin.
To take full advantage of the scatter symbol, which you will recognize by the golden tickets and the Scatter logo used in it, you will need at least three to be present. Your reward will be a payout of 3x to 100x the bet, plus access to a feature with 15, 20 or 25 free spins. The advantage of these free spins is that they have multipliers of up to 10x for wins formed during the Rolling Reels.
It’s a cartoon style design, but not a boring one, and it’s not too simple either. It has plenty of details in there, to support the story of the teenager/werewolf that goes to Howlingwood (instead of Hollywood). Images with both versions of the main character, with cheerleaders that accompany him, with cash and cars, these are all present on the reels.
I think that Cool Wolf offers quite a bit, and even though its top prizes might not be impressive, they are good for a title with ways to win. Among the downsides would be the request to use at least 50 coins for the 243 ways to win, while other similar slots need only 25 or 30.
