The wolf is seen as a spirit animal for many people throughout the world, conveying strength, teamwork, and loyalty. Swedish casino game developer NetEnt is taking a different look at the majestic animal though in their Wolf Cub slot, which if focused on the cute lifestyle a wolf pup lives. Set in a northern forest, the game manages to bring us an array of different critters, wooden symbols, and a winter climate to make you feel like you're a member of the pack.
Wolf Cub is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that allows you to test your luck in the northern forests. The game brings a bunch of cute cartoon style symbols, including a grey owl, a yellow lynx, a brown moose, a large amber coloured bear, and the grey wolf cub himself. The game also has a bunch of different standard slot symbols, but NetEnt has done a good job of making them into interesting pieces to look at. You'll find wooden green diamonds, yellow clubs, orange hearts, and red spades. Other features such as a moon and paw print are also available. You'll find that when you spin the reels, the wolf cub sits alongside you, wagging his tail and watching his breath steam up in the process. When you strike up a win, you're treated to a small animation, which brings a bit of life to the game.
Features in the Wolf Cub game are present and do bring a little extra enjoyment while you play. The game has wilds that are in the form of the paw-print, as well as scatter symbols that are in the shape of a moon. Netting three or more scatters will result in you getting the free spins bonus round to pop up. Here, you'll get the chance to rack up some big wins, with the game also bringing in the Blizzard Feature, which sees stacked symbols creating the chance to win even bigger prizes.
In terms of NetEnt video slots, the Wolf Cub slot is more or less an average game. That's not to say that it's a bad experience, but it certainly isn't as epic as some of the other titles released by the developer. The game is very sharp in its presentation though, and you'll likely be able to accrue a bunch of time trying to score those big wins. The Blizzard Feature is excellent, and in the few times that I managed to trigger the Free Spins, that feature itself ended up creating the bulk of the winnings I took home. The game is available on different devices, including desktop computers as well as mobile devices such as smartphones. The experience on either device is great, and I noticed no dip in quality either way.
Regardless of the way you choose to enjoy the game, the Wolf Cub slot is worth a spin to see if it takes your fancy. So stick out from the pack and get your feet in the snow with this game. Let's hope you strike up a big enough win to make you howl like a wolf!
