Wolf Cub might have a baby wolf in the main role, but overall this seems to be mostly a game about the creatures of the forest, as they go through the winter season. The developer being NetEnt, you can naturally expect for high end graphics from it, along with a decent spread of features, but more on that below.
In a game that has 5 reels & 20 active bet lines, the player will be able to take home prizes of up to $20,000. Looking at the features, you will find that the list is comprised of wild symbols, scatters, free spins and bonus games, which is an OK mix to take advantage of, even though it’s not impressive.
Betting and Prizes
The betting system is very similar to the ones found in other NetEnt games. It involves 20 fixed lines, but other than that you are going to get the same 1 to 10 coins to use in each case, with denominations topping off at $1. You can spend between $0.20 and $200 for every single spin, which should be a big enough range for most players to find a value that they can use.
Looking at the best rewards, those will be coming via the wild symbol, and the value will be at most $20,000. The 96.34% average RTP tells us that the game is in line with the other major slot machines that you’d want to play right now.
Wolf Cub Slot Features
The first feature that I’d like to mention is going to have a Paw Print image on it, with a Wild logo added in front. The symbol is obviously the one acting as the wild, and so you will often see it participate in new combinations formed by regular symbols. It’s going to pay you directly as well, provided that you got up to five together on a line. The other feature symbols will not be able to use its ability, but the regulars will.
The Full Moon scatter symbol is usable in this game as a way for you to get the free spins. The standard method of doing this applies, with a minimum of three such symbols being required to appear at the same time. The reels that have scatter symbols will spin and will display numbers. You add up all those numbers and you find out how many free spins you triggered.
The Blizzard Feature is made possible during the free spins, by the presence of a stack of symbols on the 1st reel, covering it fully. The symbols of that type, from the other reels, will move towards the first reel, filling the spaces between them in the process. Even the wild symbols can participate in this feature, as long as they appear stacked and covering reel 1.
Theme & Design
The forest in which the action takes place is shown behind the five reels, with trees that are covered by snow and with the wolf cub sitting next to the reels. That wolf cub will also be used as a symbol in the game, next to images of bears, owls, moose and wild cats. The final four symbols will have images with card suits, but very well designed, with colored wood being the base material for them.
Wolf Cub is more of an average slot machine for NetEnt, a developer that offers a lot of great games in their collection. Even so, I think it’s better than what many other companies are releasing right now.
