Over the last few months, Microgaming has been on a bit of a wildlife kick. First, they released the Untamed – Bengal Tiger game, which featured one of the world’s deadliest predators in its natural environment. Next, they offered players the chance to explore the habitat of one of the world’s most famous endangered species with Untamed – Giant Panda. Now, a third game in the series has been released that takes Microgaming into the canine realm: Untamed – Wolf Pack.
About The Game
Untamed – Wolf Pack is a 243 ways slot machine that allows players to play for as much as £22.50 per spin, though plenty of lower cost options are also available. The 243 Ways system is becoming increasingly popular, but in case you aren’t familiar with it, here’s what you need to know. Instead of paying for each payline individually, these games simply require you to make a single bet. This bet actually covers every possible payline or combination of positions running left to right across the reels, meaning you’ll win as long as you match the right symbols – no matter where they appear. Since Untamed – Wolf Pack has five reels and three symbol positions, there are 243 possible paylines, which is where “243 Ways” comes from.
If you’ve seen any of the other Untamed games, one thing that you’ll know to expect from Wolf Pack is lush graphics that feature both the landscapes and animals one would expect to find in a wolf pack’s environment. You’ll not only see adult wolves (which are both beautiful and menacing), but you’ll be treated to symbols that depict prey, such as elk, as well as landscapes of dense forests. There’s also a symbol depicting three adorable wolf cubs that should make you smile every time you see it. Lower-value symbols are more generic, covering the card ranks from tens through aces.
Untamed – Wolf Pack also includes a bevy of special features. One that has carried over from other Untamed games is the Collect-A-Wild bonus. Each time a wild symbol appears anywhere on the reels, you’ll collect a wild token for that particular reel. Once you build up four tokens on a single reel, that reel will turn completely wild and stay that way for four spins.
A free spins game can also be triggered with the help of the famous eye symbols, another feature that has carried over from other games in this series. If three wolf eyes appear on screen, you’ll instantly win ten free spins. What’s unique about this is that you don’t necessarily have to see all three eyes on the screen in order to trigger this; if you have two eyes, one “peaking” from just above or below the reels might adjust itself onto the screen in order to earn you a win. During free spins, you can also take advantage of the Running Wilds feature, in which stacked wilds will appear on the reels with greater and greater frequency over the course of your free spins round.
If you’ve enjoyed the Untamed series of slots by Microgaming so far, Wolf Pack is another great game in the that features familiar action with a whole new set of animal icons.
