Golden Wolves is a Konami pokie set in the plains of North America, where you’ll find a whole host of creatures roaming free. The golden wolves themselves act as the wild symbol and give a much greater boost to any spin than a wild normally would. Joining the wolves on the pokie reels are bison, raccoons, eagles and a moose, creating reels full of animals.
This slot game is high on action from the very first spin, with the occasional randomly added boost. Look out for those wolves – which can appear at any time. Here is what makes this medium to high variance pokies sparkle:
The golden wolves act as the wild symbols, substituting for every other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter. This wild appears as standard during the base game, however at any time you can receive the boost of ‘The Wild Feature’.
Half the time, this feature is activated while the reels are still spinning, placing these extra wilds in place before the other symbols come to a stop. At other times, the extra wilds are added once the reels have stopped spinning and all of the symbols are in place.
Occasionally a wild can land in the same spot as the bonus symbol, leading to the creation of a symbol that is a combination of both, acting as both the wild and a scatter.
Look out for the bonus symbol which features a large red ruby set within a dreamcatcher. Land 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll win 10, 12 or 20 free games respectively (as well as instant wins of 5x, 10x or 50x your total stake respectively). On entering the free spins you’ll notice quickly that the wild feature is activated a lot more often than in the base game – expect the feature to come into play at least once every handful of spins. The free spins can be retriggered at any time too, with 10, 12 or 20 free spins added to your total when landing 3, 4 or 5 more scatters.
Like most Konami pokies, you’ll notice that each spin sees one symbol at random dominate the reels. The system which makes this work is called ‘Action Stacked Symbols’.
It works by having long strips (called stacks) on the reels which are filled with a symbol at random when you spin. That symbol is hugely over-represented for one spin only, potentially covering the entire 5×3 set of reels. If that happens, you could be looking at 30 pay outs from the same spin!
Golden Wolves is a pokie with the popular 5×3 reel set up. The cost of each spin is 45 credits, which covers the 30 credits for the win-lines and an additional 15 credits for the bonus features added. The highest paying symbols are the golden wolves themselves, with an incredible 10,000-coin win for lining up 5 in a row, while the 1,000-coin win for 4 in a row is the second highest pay out in the game. The range of other creatures on the reels are joined by the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Golden Wolves is set at night, with stars twinkling in the clear blue sky. At the back of the scene are huge mountains, while rocks and sand make up the front of the view. The reels themselves are blue with a Native American pattern and are nicely filled by the array of creatures that roam the plains of North America. The playing card symbols add further colour to the already fine mix on the reels.
This nature themed pokie is both enjoyable and original. The eye-catching setting and the range of animal symbols will certainly endear the game to nature lovers out there. The game play offers excitement in several unique ways. While you’ll find wilds at most game, not many will have wild symbols as effective as the wolves – land them as standard but receive a regular wild boost too. With the Action Stacked Symbols in play, as well as the free spins, there is always something to get your teeth into on the Golden Wolves pokies.
