This slot’s impressive visuals are matched by the compelling selection of features where fearsome battles build-up to offer you the opportunity at 3 free spins modes.
When the werewolf symbol landed anywhere on the reels, it was attacked by a hunter. If the hunter triumphed, the wolf would transform into a sticky wild and award me one respin. The werewolf has 600 hit points and reducing this count to zero will trigger the Slayer free spins. Each victory will also award 1 rage point to either hunter when they win their battles. When either hunter reached 100 rage points, Rage free spins will activate.
While the Slayer and Rage free spins mode are activated by Hunter vs. Wolf battles, I triggered the standard free spins by landing both hunter symbols on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin, receiving 10 free spins as a result.
The Hunter/Huntress upgrade sub-feature is active across all 3 free spins modes. When I collected 3 hunter symbols, the character was upgraded and I received an extra 2 free spins, and when the hunter attacked the wolf, it turned into a wild which expanded up and down by a single reel position. When I got 3 huntress symbols, her character was upgraded, rewarding me with 2 extra free spins and when she struck the werewolf, it became a wild that expanded one position to the left.
In Rage free spins, I received 10 free spins with the hunter or huntress fully powered up, while in Slayer free spins all werewolf symbols automatically transformed into expanding wilds.
Wolf Hunters slot offers an elevated gameplay experience with a finely crafted spooky atmosphere. I was thoroughly impressed with and engrossed by the slot’s theme which has a dark horror/action movie tone with a suitably creepy soundtrack. I also enjoyed the use of progress meters in the game that helped me trigger 2 of the 3 free spins options; they truly built up a sense of anticipation as I neared my goal, although I am aware that this type of mechanic is not everyone’s cup of tea.
The three free spins modes are this game’s crowning achievement in my opinion, as you could theoretically trigger them within a few spins of each other at any point in time, making for an action-packed experience, which was enhanced by my running battles with the night creature. The slot presents a top possible potential of $234 000, but the real excitement came from the wins I grabbed along the way.
