“Wolf Run” has been around now for a number of years, and has become a firm favorite in Vegas casinos.
Sometimes the reason why some slots become massive hits and others don’t is just a crapshoot. However, with Wolf Run, it’s easy to see the draw, and understand why it’s gained such popularity.
This game was completely new and innovative when it was released. It is a 5 reel slot, with bonus features and impressive sounds and explosions associated with a ‘Big Win’.
This game has a very unique history. The original concept came from the only female lead designer of one of the best known casino gaming companies in the United States, called IGT.
The designer named this slot after moving into her residential apartment block called Wolf Run. She thought the wolf theme would be a nice idea for a slots game…and her idea hit the jackpot!
Wolf Run has been a massive hit and is still high on people’s lists of must play games when they go to Vegas, even many years later.
The philosophy of the Wolf Run slot machine is simple. It incorporates beautiful graphics, consistent sounds for wins, the potential to win major jackpots through ‘stacked’ or ‘chained’ wild symbols on all five pay lines and a big jackpot. If all your pay- lines line up with the full stack of wild symbols, a huge prize is won!
The game has 5 reels and 40 pay-lines! There are 4 images on each reel instead of the usual 3 found on most slot machines.
Wolf Run also has a “stacked wilds” feature. This means each reel contains a “stack” of 4 or more Wild symbols. For example, you might see an entire reel covered with 4 wild wolf symbols. When several stacks line up properly on the reels, winnings can be huge!
The Bonus game for Wolf Run is in the form of Free Spins. If you land 3 Bonus symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4, you win 5 free spins!
During the Wolf Run free spins bonus, there are extra Stacked Wilds and extra Bonus symbols on the reels. This makes it easier to trigger even more free spins (up to 255 if you’re lucky!)
However, unlike many games with ‘free spins’, in Wolf Run the really big money is not from the bonus. It is in “stacked wilds”. When columns of stacked wild symbols in the reels line up in a row, this can be massive.
The wins on stacked wilds really start to happen when you have both the maximum 40- lines being played and you get four stacks in a row. When this happens, you can see bonus wins into the many thousands!
Wolf Run also has a Gamble feature. If you win less than 3,000 credits, you can gamble your win by taking a “double or nothing” option. Choose red or black to guess the color of the ace that will appear. If you are wrong, you lose the gambled amount, but if you’re correct, your bet is doubled!
