Cool Wolf is a particularly exciting slot by Microgaming. This mainly has to do with the fact that the title of the slot isn’t really honored in the gameplay. That is, it takes quite a while before the wolf shows up when you have a few unsuccessful spins in a row. Still, the title of the slot does make sense and playing will become increasingly more fun when you keep on playing. The fact that Cool Wolf gets increasingly better has to do with its free spins and the avalanche – which is the disappearance of symbols after having been part of a winning combination. As a result of the multiplier, during free spins, the maximum potential win is sizable. However, this great maximum potential win during free spins isn’t the only reason why you would want to play this slot.
How to play Cool Wolf?
Cool Wolf is one of those slots by Microgaming which looks plain and simple with its standard layout of five reels and three rows but don’t be fooled. That is, once you start playing the game will enthrall you. When you have a winning combination on your reels, the wolf will appear and take away the symbols comprising the win. Subsequently, your reels will get replenished from the top of the slot, which could immediately lead to new wins. Thus, you basically get somewhat of a free re-spin with every successful spin. Cool Wolf definitely isn’t the only slot with such an avalanche function. For example, the game Gonzo’s Quest by NetEnt is one of the most well-known slots that also has this feature.
The animations with the title Cool Wolf written on it functions as the wild symbol. This symbol can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter, which is the symbol with the word scatter written on it. Because of the fact that it can substitute for almost any other symbol, the wild significantly increases your chances of winning.
Free spins on Cool Wolf
In case you already liked the avalanche feature during regular spins, you’re going to love them during free spins. When the scatter lands on your reels at least three times, you will go to free spins immediately. During regular spins, the title of the slot stands at the top of the slot. However, during free spins, the name of the slot will be replaced with the multiplier. As long as you keep on forming wins and avalanches, this multiplier increases. Only after an unsuccessful spin will the multiplier drop back again. Thus, because of this multiplier, wins can add up quickly during free spins. Unfortunately, you cannot win extra free spins when spinning for free. On the other hand, with the avalanche feature, you’re already getting quite some re-spins.
Special feature on Cool Wolf
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the random feature could pop up. This random feature is called the Howling Wild and is capable of turning entire reels wild. And that’s not all, as you also are guaranteed to win during this feature. The avalanche function isn’t active when the Howling Wild is active.
Pay lines on Cool Wolf
Cool Wolf does not have pay lines as it uses ways to win. The fact that this slot uses ways to win makes the avalanche function even more interesting, as wins form more easily with ways to win. The only way to alter your total wager -seeing as you cannot play with fewer active pay lines- is by altering the coin value and number of coins. Naturally, Cool Wolf also has an autoplay function.
