Wolf Moon Slots

Wolf-MoonAristocrat offers us with Wolf Moon a slot machine with a theme which relies on the idea of wildlife. There is one other thing about this game that I for one have found fascinating, the fact that it has 6 reels and uses ways to win at the same time. Games with more than 5 reels are extremely rare, so if you want to try out something new, Wolf Moon might just be the game for you. The wolf inspired game also has various other animals among its symbols, and there is nothing original about the theme, but at least they got the design right.

What is impressive about this game is that it has 6 reels, with ways to win replacing the paylines. The other features will give you a Lucky Zone, free spins, scatter symbols and wild symbols. You can only win up to $1,562.50.

Features of Wolf Moon

One of the big features you should keep in mind in this game would be the use of 6 reels and ways to win. Another would be the wilds, the scatter symbols and the Lucky Zone which gives you free spins.

The game plays just like a 5 reel game would, only you can form combos of 3 to 6 symbols here. There are also ways to win, and a lot of them, since there are not only more reels but also four symbols on each one instead of three. Forming combinations is easy enough, as long as you have the symbols from left to right, on adjacent reels.

The Full Moon is used as the wild feature in Wolf Moon. This symbol can substitute for any icon, the scatter being the exception. It only appears on the 3rd and 4th reels though, so the other four reels don’t get it. You also don’t get paid directly by the wild when it appears.

The other symbol used here with a special role is the Green Star, which acts as a scatter and pays from any position, no matter on what reels it appears. You only need 3 or more Green Stars, and you will get a prize, worth from 1x to 25x the total bet.

Lucky Zone Feature

Having from 3 to 6 scattered Green Star icons will bring you a Lucky Zone feature, which will give you 12, 24, 30 or 40 spins for free, depending on the number of triggering symbols.


The said Lucky Zone gets activated during these free spins. The middle two symbols on the 3rd and 4th reels are enclosed in a rectangle shape for the duration of the free spins. If you happen to get a wild symbol in this Lucky Zone, all four icons from the area take the same role and become wilds. On top of that, the two middle reels are held for one bonus spin.

Betting options and jackpots

The 6 reel system, coupled with the ways to win, requires a special type of betting system. You have the 6 reels, the x50 bet multiplier to cover all the ways to win, and then you have the only option which you can modify, the Reel Cost. This starts at $0.01 and can go as high as $2.50. Since about 50 lines are part of the betting system, your wagers will go up to $125.

The best possible combo you can get in this slot is at 625x, so you can expect a top payout of $1,562.50.

Design and symbols

It’s a pretty typical design for a slot machine which uses nature as inspiration. Beautiful forests are shown behind the reels, though only at the top of the screen, while the bottom half is taken over by an abstract purple design. The blue reels have symbols with simple poker cards or with wild animals, including the wolf, but also having birds, moose and bears.
