Betsoft's Wolf Moon Rising is a medium volatility slot.
The spirit of the wild is alive and well in the mystical lands of Wolf Moon Rising from Betsoft.
The 5-reels and 25 paylines slots come with game features that include the Wolf Moon Fortune, Elemental Wilds and Feather Talisman Free Spins, with payouts of up to 20,000x.
Wolf Moon Rising: inspired by nature
The artwork of Wolf Moon Rising is very much inspired by nature starting with the shadowy background of mountains and pine trees made visible by virtue of the Northern Lights.
Welcome to the northern hemisphere of Northern Canada or Alaska, USA.
Here you will find high-value symbols that include two different wolves which payout in sets of as little as two per payline.
There is also the bald eagle, puma and bison as the mid-value symbols and finally six standard-paying symbols. The soundtrack while adequate lacks some of the inspiration of the theme and artwork.
The elemental wild symbol appears on any reel outside of the Feather Talisman and Wolf Moon symbols. These wilds will pay up to £50,000 if we can land 5 of them on a payline with a maximum bet. As with the high-value symbols, as little as two wilds on a payline will award cash.
Pay Both Ways Free Spins + 2x multiplier
Three or more Feather Talisman scatter symbols will unlock the 12 free spins. Win up to £25, £100 or £500 with 3, 4 or 5 on any position. During the free spins, the slot pays both ways with 2x multipliers on all wins. The free spins cannot be re-triggered.
This game has a return to player (RTP) of 96.53%.
Fortune Under the Full Moon
A special wolf moon symbol may appear on any spin which can award up to £5 each with a maximum wager.
Double Up Game
Flip a coin and call heads or tails for the chance to win double your winnings or half your winnings if you guess correctly. This feature is only available in regular games.
- pay both ways free spins with a 2x multiplier for higher potential payouts
- popular nature theme
- scatter-pays symbol
So what did I think?
Wolf Moon Rising will have some appeal with players who enjoy wildlife themes.
The sound effects and artwork are solid, but the latter lacks the cutting edge 3D images and quality that we've seen from other Betsoft slots. None of the features is original but, conceptually, I liked the combination of 2x multiplier and pay both ways in the free spins.
In practice, though, I found the free spins very difficult to trigger but worth the wait as it has the potential to be a great source of cash.
The medium volatility means that wins will likely come a little less often but there's a chance of a larger win when they do. If you want to try a game with high volatility from this developer, then we suggest Gold Canyon.
Highlights include a scatter pays symbol, wild, pay both ways free spins with 2x multiplier and gamble feature.
