The worst thing about the Wolf Gold slots game? The grammatically-suspect title. Even if one should get past any hangups about, likesay, determining the adjective in what appears to be a compound noun, the terrible genericness (is *that* a word?) of the two-word name will certainly fail to attract many within an online casino of hundreds of slots games. Luckily, Wolf Gold (ugh) makes up for in desirable features what it lacks in original nomenclature: Stuff like stacked wilds, respins (herein known as “money respins”) and “blazing reels” are in play.
The theme is the Wolf Gold slots game is American wildlife. Along with the wolf in the symbol set are buffalo, lynx, mustangs and eagles. Accentuating this theme are the low-paying A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols. (Wow, those poker-run symbols sure are fun and interesting in every slots game coming down the pike, aren’t they?)
The rock formation icon is the scatter appearing on reels 1, 3 and 5. Landing three scatters awards 3x the wager straightaway, chased by five free spins.
In the free spins bonus round, an interesting tweak is added: On all freebies, the middle three reels are filled with one gigantic symbol, the so-called “Blazing Reels.” In other words, reels 2, 3 and 4 are filled with stacked symbols. This feature certainly makes things interesting when one of the wild animals lands, but seeing that huge-ass 9 filling three reels is a serious anti-climax.
In the base game of Wolf Gold, a tiny “money symbol” appears in the upper-right corner of some randomly-chosen symbols. Hitting six or more of these blessed symbols on a single spin launches the Money Respins feature.
In the Wolf Gold slot’s Money Respins, three free spins are awarded and the reels morph. All symbols are replaced by either money symbols or blanks (now when was the last time you saw *that* in a slot machine?) and three free spins are rewarded. All money symbols stick until the end of the round, and every time a new money symbol is hit, the free spins are retriggered.
How about this? “Give the casino game software designers/developers at Pragmatic Play an A for effort and around a B-minus in execution for Wolf Gold. The Wolf Gold slot contains lots of intriguing features that don’t always pay off with massive jackpots (or hit at all, to be honest) but definitely keep the player interested. Unfortunate that some nice innovations may go mostly ignored by slots players, who don’t notice this slot due to its frankly lame title.”
