Did you know that wolves are known to love rock and roll music? No, of course, you didn’t, because it is a ludicrous notion. And yet, here we are with a new online video slot themed on wolves loving rock and roll music, called Rockabilly Wolves.
Rockabilly Wolves is powered by both Just For The Win/Microgaming, and it contains free spins and sticky wilds for players to shake their boogey to when dancing.
Rockabilly Wolves features five reels with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; as players may expect; Rockabilly Wolves has a 1950s rock and roll soundtrack pumping out audios to accompany the gameplay that is magnified by cartoon-style visuals and vivid colours.
The high-value symbols in Rockabilly Wolves are represented by the game logo, cherries, one of the rocking wolves and the eight balls. The royal playing cards of Jack, Queen, King and Ace make up the lower-value symbols.
The rocking wolf is the most prize-rewarding symbol. Should players land five of a kind on an active payline, they will obtain a payout twenty times their bet stake. Players should also be aware that there is a wild that substitutes all other symbols and pays the same as the high-value wolf.
In the central game, the wild symbol is represented by three wolves, and as mentioned, it replaces all other symbols to help form winning combinations. The wild symbol cannot replace the Free Spins bonus icon.
Features of Rockabilly Wolves
Free Spins are activated when players land three of the Free Spins bonus icons anywhere on the second, third and fourth reels for that they will receive an initial nine free spins.
The bonus icon that lands on the third reel will transform into a sticky wild and remain in place until the feature is over, however more sticky wilds or multiplier sticky wilds can also land, remaining in place. The win multiplier for this round begins at x2; however, each multiplier wild will rise that by x1.
The most notable icon is the Free Spins symbol that appears only on the second, third and fourth reels – should they land two on the reels, they will activate the Re-Spin round – the free spins icons are locked with the reels respinning, giving players another opportunity to acquire more free spins, so they enter the main bonus round.
Three more spins are bestowed if at least one sticky/multiplier wild has landed on each reel.
Plus, sticky wilds or multiplier sticky wilds can emerge on any reel – when these do they too remain in place. Should they land, the multiplier rises by x1. With one multiplier sticky wild appearing on each reel, the multiplier can reach x6. Furthermore, when one sticky wild or multiplier sticky wilds surface on each reel, three extra free spins are added to a players total. This gameplay action can only happen once so players can play with a total of twelve free spins.
Rockabilly Wolves seizes a genre gamers probably didn’t know existed, and yet why the concept is weird, it is much fun too. Players should keep the sound on and aim to obtain more free spins as the winnings can undoubtedly mount up for the more fortunate players. So ignore the silly theme and get rockin’!
