Two Native American Pokies Under the Same ‘Coyote Queen’ Umbrella
When you see the Coyote Queen pokie on the casino floor, you’ve really got two slots for the price of one – ‘Coyote Queen the Prowl’ and ‘Coyote Queen the Hunt’. Whichever of the two themes you choose, you’ll be presented with a Native American themed game featuring symbols such as wolves and pawprints. While the gameplay in the base of both games remains virtually the same, the free spins bonus feature does mix it up.
Reasons to Enjoy Both of the Coyote Queen Versions
Both the Prowl and the Hunt offer an exciting array of gameplay features:
Whichever of the two pokies you play, you’ll enter the free spins feature in the same way. On the reels are wonderful purple arrangements as the scatter symbols, these stacked like every other symbol in the game. The free spins are activated when you land three or more of these stacks so that they fill the reels completely.
In ‘The Hunt’ you’ll receive an impressive 18 free spins. ‘The Prowl’ takes a different approach, as you’ll have a choice as to which symbol you want stacked during these spins. For example, you can choose to have 7 spins with the highest paying Coyote Queen symbol stacked, while having the white wolf symbol stacked will give you 11 free spins. The number of spins on offer is lower when playing ‘The Prowl’ but offers bigger win opportunities. Players who enjoy a lower level of variance should therefore choose ‘The Hunt’, while those who like bigger swings will enjoy ‘The Prowl’ more.
During gameplay you might find a symbol showing a paw fill one or more reels. When the reels come to a stop, the paw symbols on each reel will now convert into a randomly chosen other symbol. The Jackpot scenario comes in when you land three or more full stacks of the paw symbol. 3, 4 or 5 full stacks will award you the Mini, Minor and Major Jackpots. Fill all six reels with the paw symbol and the Grand Jackpot, the biggest Jackpot of all is yours.
When you first stand in front of Coyote Queen you’ll get to choose which of the two themes you’ll play. Each of the two themes features an unusual 6×4 reel set up, with a total of 50 win-lines across the reels.
With all of those stacked symbols in the game, and especially those stacked wilds, wins will come along on a regular basis. The highest paying symbols in the game start with the Coyote Queen herself, and she is joined by both a grey and a white wold and other Native American themed symbols.
Like many other pokies, the bottom end of the pay table is filled with playing card symbols – in this case, 10, J, Q, K and A.
While the gameplay between the two games is very similar, the backdrop to each game provides the biggest difference. In ‘The Prowl’ you’ll find an earthy brown backdrop, with an orange glow which denotes the rising and setting of the sun. In ‘The Hunt’ the game has a wintry feel, with ice and snow all around. In each game you’ll see the Queen herself looming large on the upper screen, enveloped by the Jackpot pays proudly displayed. The accompanying soundtrack to each game features a Native American theme, doing a fine job of transporting you to that part of the world.
Coyote Queen is an involving and atmospheric gambling machine. With the two distinct modes in play, you’ll have a choice to make from the start, although in many respects the games are very similar. The base game, with those stacked symbols and wilds offers many big win opportunities and look out for the progressive Jackpot chances too. It’s the free spins feature where the games differ and this is where the real choice comes in – play this game your way.
