Wolf Cub was released late last year by gaming giants NetEnt and we're so excited to bring it to our players! This is because the slot boasts an adorable woodland theme, which we challenge you not to find endearing, and it comes complete with amazing graphics, a highly lucrative extra spins round and chances to win up to 2,000x your wager!
Wolf Cub is available right now at Fable Casino but if you want to know more about it before you play then read on for our full review!
Wolf Cub is a 5 reel slot with a traditional 20 payline mechanism, which is rare for the innovative creators over at NetEnt. That being said, the slot does hold a few surprises despite it's conventional layout and it can be played for as little as 20p, up to £200, per spin. It's also available across all devices, including iOS and Android, and runs flawlessly whichever way you play.
As is arguably always the case with NetEnt slots, Wolf Cub looks fantastic. We'd even go so far as to say it may be one of the brand's most attractive titles yet. The reels in the game hang against a snow covered forest backdrop, with the titular wolf cub sitting obediently beside them. Symbols on the reels include a handful of very cute woodland creatures, such as a bear, a snow leopard, a moose and an owl, each of which wouldn't look out of place in a Disney film.
The slot's lower paying symbols are represented by traditional playing card values, yet it's the wild frozen paw print you should look out for! This not only substitutes for all other symbols, but is also the slot's highest paying symbol, rewarding you with 100x your wager for a five of a kind combination.
Throughout the base game, players will benefit from fairly frequent, small wins. This is perfect for boosting your bankroll just enough to keep spinning, but the big wins of the game are generally found in the bonus round. This is why we consider Wolf Cub to be a medium variance game, yet it still boasts a healthy RTP of 96.34% and it's maximum win of £400,000!
Unlike most NetEnt slots, which come with a plethora of bonus features, Wolf Cub players will actually only benefit from one extra round. However, the good news is that this is especially lucrative and is triggered quite regularly.
In order to start the bonus round, players need to land three or more of the moon scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Once this has happened, all reels containing a scatter symbol will re-spin, with numbers taking the scatter symbols places.
These numbers are then added up, giving you the total number of extra spins you'll receive. There's up to 115 extra spins up for grabs in this round, which is definitely an impressive figure!
During the extra spins, players can also maximise their win potential by triggering the blizzard feature. This happens if a symbol lands fully stacked on reel one, and it means that this symbol will spread to meet all other symbols of it's kind.
For example, if you land a stacked moose symbol on reel one and a regular moose symbol on reel three, the moose from reel one will spread to reel three, meaning there will be a complete section of the reels covered by moose symbols. This, naturally, gives players a much higher chance of creating winning combinations and, as the blizzard feature even applies to wild symbols, can result in some huge wins.
For us, Wolf Cub is definitely one of NetEnt's best releases of the past year. We know that it's probably not as feature-heavy as some players may be accustomed to, but we like the simplicity of the slot because it allows the base game to be pretty fast paced and the bonus round is definitely worth the wait.
Moreover, performance wise, Wolf Cub is flawless. Not only does the slot perform flawlessly across all devices, thanks to NetEnt's HTML5 design, but it also looks incredible even on the smaller screen.
Overall, we think that Wolf Cub is an excellent game and we really can't find any faults with it. For a medium variance title it's incredibly rewarding and whilst some may think it's too simple, we'd argue that this only helps to make it more attractive as it allows for a fairly relaxed gaming session. Moreover, the bonus round wins will certainly help to boost your casino balance and we just can't help but love the adorable characters and style of this slot.
