The Wolf Strike online slot from Iron Dog Studio is a 5-reel, 3-row game with 20 fixed pay-lines and a maximum potential win of 5,100x the bet. The grid is set against a stunning view of lakes, trees and mountains in a typical North American wilderness scene.
The symbols include buffalo, deer, pumas and wolf, as well as low-paying card ranks. And in a boost to the game’s win potential, the animal premiums give payouts for combos of just 2 symbols, as long as they start on the leftmost reel.
There is also a big bad wolf as the wild symbol. This will help form winning combinations and give the game’s highest line wins when it forms its own combination across a payline, awarding 0.3, 2.5, 8 or 50 x the stake for a combination of 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols, respectively.
The wild also helps collect cash prizes from the Nugget symbols during the base game, but players will have to wait until the Hold & Win feature triggers to really benefit from these.
Two types of special Nugget symbols can land anywhere on the grid, Golden Nuggets with a cash value, or Strike Nuggets.
Landing two Golden Nuggets on the same reel as a wild will award the values to the player in the base game. Landing 3, 4, or 5 Strike Nuggets will win the player the Mini, Minor, or Major Payout, worth 50, 250, or 1,000 times the stake, respectively.
6 Nugget symbols in view will trigger the Hold & Win feature. This kicks off with 3 respins with the triggering nuggets sticking in place. During the respins, only blanks and Nuggets can land, and each one that does will also stick and reset the counter to 3.
The respins continue until the counter runs down to 0, or all the positions on the grid are filled with Nuggets. At the end of the round, the cash values are collected and awarded to the player. If the grid is full, a x2 multiplier is applied to the total win.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the grid awards 8, 12 or 20 free spins. During these the Hold & Win feature can trigger with higher prizes than in the base game, and the round can be extended by landing 3 or more scatters on one spin.
